While European competition resumed this week, many clubs in the English top flight retained focus on the domestic league. However, there are not many games that jump off the page on matchday 25 in the Premier League. There is only one game involving two teams in the top half of the table, and one of those teams is 10th.

That would be Chelsea, which only crept into the upper half of the table after a win over Crystal Palace on Monday night. Late goals from Conor Gallagher and Enzo Fernandez secured what could be an important three points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side. Points will be harder to come by in the next few weeks, and that starts with a daunting trip to Manchester City. The defending treble winners won in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie in Copenhagen this week to continue their win streak. Pep Guardiola’s City has won its last 11 games in all competitions. That dates back to the FIFA Club World Cup, and it includes six wins in the Premier League. That has closed the gap to two points with league leaders Liverpool, while City still has a game in hand.

At the other end of the table, the relegation battle is heating up as Everton hosts the Palace side that recently lost to Chelsea. Roy Hodgson is under mounting pressure at Selhurst Park, but the club is trying to right the ship rather than replacing him. Palace is only five points above Everton in the table, even though Sean Dyche’s Toffees are 18th and threatening relegation for the third season running. If Everton can pick up a win, there is a real chance it will climb out of the relegation zone.
