Premier League Saturday 11 March
Bournemouth v Liverpool
Can Liverpool Build Upon Their Recent Momentum?
Liverpool fans haven’t had too much to write home about this season, but last week’s annihilation of Manchester United will surely get their ball finally rolling. Jurgen Klopp’s side haven’t conceded a goal for six league games now and look as though they’ll finally put together a competent challenge for the Champions League places.
Diogo Jota returned to action recently, but Luis Diaz and Thiago remained sidelined.
The Reds will be taking on a Bournemeouth side who were hammered 9-0 in the reverse fixture back in August. The Cherries are currently rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table and are in desperate need of a positive result if they have any hopes of staying in the division. The 2-0 lead Bournemouth attained over Arsenal will at least provide some hope, even if they went on to lose that game.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool is the early kick-off this Saturday, starting at 12:30 GMT.
Leicester City v Chelsea
Can Potter Finally Turn Things Around?
Chelsea were impressive in their Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund earlier in the week and will hope to keep their positive momentum going. The Blues achieved a victory over Leeds United last week, their first victory since 16 January.
Leicester City have had a poor season by their standards and last week’s loss was their 15th of the 22/23 season. With Paston Daka and Jamie Vardy being severely off-form this season, the goals need to start arriving at the King Power if the former league champions want to avoid a relegation battle.
Leicester City vs Chelsea will take place at the King Power Stadium at 3pm GMT on Saturday 11 March.
Leeds United v Brighton
Can Leeds Escape Once Again?
Leeds United are only above the relegation zone on goal difference and are desperately missing their top scorer Rodrigo Moreno, who could return in their upcoming game against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Javi Gracia’s men take on a Brighton side who are chasing European football this season. The Seagulls thrashed West Ham 4-0 last week, though they lost Tariq Lamptey in the process. Moises Caciedo, the target of a lot of Premier League clubs, recently signed a contract extension, however.
Leeds United vs Brighton will kick-off at 3pm at Elland Road on Saturday 11 March.
Everton v Brentford
A Tale At Both Ends of the Table
It’s still surreal to see Brentford perform so well in the Premier League and the Bees achieved yet another impressive victory earlier this week, beating fellow European-hopefuls Fulham.
Ivan Toney has had a sublime season and he’ll be a serious threat for the soft Everton defence. Everton’s situation looks bleak, but they are only in the relegation zone of goal difference and will need to rely upon the fitness of Calvert-Lewin if they’re serious about scoring goals. Neal Maupay hasn’t hit the ground running, whilst Ellis Simms remains a mystery at this level.
Calvert-Lewin could return for the Brentford clash - much to the delight of Toffees fans.
Everton vs Brenford will be hosted at Goodison Park and the game will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday 11 March.
Tottenham v Nottingham Forest
Can Conte Consolidate Top Four?
Spurs endured a crushing loss to Wolves last week and they need a victory if they wish to keep Liverpool at bay.
Harry Kane may be in superb form this season, but the rest of Tottenham’s attack leaves a lot to be desired, with Son Heung-Min being dormant for large stretches and Richarlison yet to score a Premier League goal in Tottenham colours.
Hugo Lloris, Yves Bissouma, Ryan Sessegnon, and Rodrigo Bentancur remain sidelined for the time being.
Forest have improved since the January transfer window, but they’ll need to keep grinding out results if they wish to pull away from the drop-zone. Jonjo Shelvey will add experience in midfield, however goalkeeper Dean Henderson and centre-back Willy Boly remain injured.
Tottenham vs Nottingham Forest will take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 11 March at 3pm.
Crystal Palace v Man City
Can City Catch Arsenal?
Crystal Palace host Manchester City in Saturday’s late kick-off, with the Eagles searching for just their 7th Premier League win all season.
The Eagles have a respectable record against City and managed to keep clean sheets against them in both of their league meetings last season. Midfield destroyer Cheick Doucoure is suspended, but he remains the only major Palace player to be absent as of now.
Manchester City currently trail leader Arsenal by 5 points, though that could be cut down to two if the Sky Blues win and Arsenal lose. Phil Foden will be assessed ahead of the clash, but there is no new injury news regarding Pep Guardiola’s side.
Crystal Palace vs City will kick-off at 5:30pm on Saturday 11 March and the game will take place at Selhurst Park.
Premier League Sunday 12 March
Manchester United v Southampton
Will Man United Respond?
The last 10 days have been a true rollercoaster for Manchester United fans as they’ve experienced the highs of winning the League Cup and the lows of being thrashed 7-0 by Liverpool.
Erik ten Hag labelled his side’s performance at Anfield as ‘’unprofessional’’ and he’ll be seeking an immediate answer in the Red Devils’ upcoming home clash against troubled Southampton.
Saints achieved a rare victory over Leicester City last week and, despite being in poor form for the entire season, are only a point from safety.
Manchester United vs Southampton will take place at Old Trafford at 2pm GMT on Sunday 12 March.
West Ham v Aston Villa
Moyes Under Pressure?
David Moyes’ West Ham are enduring a turgid season, with the Hammers barely above the relegation zone and attaining just six league victories all season.
West Ham will host Villa this Sunday at 2pm, with Villa hoping to stop a run of three successive league defeats. Michail Antonio, Vladimir Coufal, Maxwel Cornet, and Lukasz Fabianski are all either sidelined or being assessed, whilst Phillipe Coutinho is the latest player to join Villa’s large injury list.
Fulham v Arsenal
A London Derby At The Top
Both Fulham and Arsenal have had wonderful seasons and the two London clubs will battle each other at Craven Cottage this Sunday at 2pm.
Arsenal will go eight points clear if they win and Man City lose, whilst Fulham could overtake Newcastle in 6th. The Gunners showed title-winning resilience in their comeback win over Bournemouth last week and a victory here will add another layer to their already-impressive romp to the Premier League title.
Joao Paulinha, who has won more tackles than anybody else in the league this season, is Fulham’s only notable absence, whilst the Gunners lack Leandro Trossard and Gabriel Jesus.
Eddie Nketiah is currently being assessed, but the Englishman will be unlikely to start this weekend.
Wolves v Newcastle United
Can Howe Bounce Back?
Wolves attained a valuable three points over Spurs last weekend, and a win over stuttering Newcastle will lift them even further away from the drop-zone.
The Magpies have been poor since January and haven’t won a league game since beating Fulham almost two months ago. Newcastle’s goals have severely dried-up, though a start for Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon could offer some much-needed urgency in the final-third.
Hugo Bueno, Hwang Lee-Chan, and Diego Costa remain Wolves’ major injury concerns, whilst Newcastle will be without the suspended Joelinton and the concussed Fabian Schar.
Wolves vs Newcastle will take place at Molineux on Sunday 12 March at 5:30 pm.
