Manchester City vs Liverpool
Pep Guardiola’s side are not out of title-contention just yet, and a win over Liverpool in the early kick-off will surely put the pressure back on to Arsenal.
Liverpool won the reverse fixture at Anfield in October, but the Reds’ patchy form this season has left a lot to be desired. Klopp’s men thrashed Manchester United 7-0 before losing to Bournemouth the week after, a pair of results summing up Liverpool’s entire 22/23 campaign. The Reds have a respectable record against top six sides this season, and a win at the Etihad would cement their Champions League hopes even further.
City have a strong record against Liverpool at home, having not lost to the Reds for five years in all competitions. City, however, failed to beat Liverpool last season and are seeking a first league victory over them since 2021.

Arsenal vs Leeds United
Title-chasing Arsenal will need an immediate response if City beat Liverpool. That chance could come during their game against struggling Leeds on Saturday.
The Gunners need to win every game remaining this season if they wish to fend-off Manchester City and Leeds need to start picking up some points if they wish to remain in the division.
Bukayo Saka recently showcased his incredible talent in England’s game against Ukraine, whereas Leeds youngster Wilfried Gnonto impressed for Italy.

Bournemouth vs Fulham
Bournemouth could fortify their survival hopes by winning against a Fulham side whose star player, Aleksandar Mitrovic, found himself in serious trouble by pushing a referee earlier this month.
Fulham have enjoyed a great first season back in the top-flight, though the Serbian’s suspension could halt their positive momentum towards the end of this campaign.
A win for Bournemouth could, depending on how the clubs around them fare, lift them out of the drop-zone at least for the time being and give the Cherries the lifeline they need.

Brighton vs Brentford
Brighton’s superb 22/23 campaign will become even better if they defeat Brentford this Saturday. Roberto De Zerbi’s men are still in Champions League contention somewhat and have produced some stunning performances this season. Striker Evan Ferguson is making a name for himself, whilst established stars like Moises Caciedo and Alexis Mac Allister continue to attract attention from other Premier League clubs.
Brentford have impressed this season, too, with the club on-course for a top 10 finish this season and beating the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool along the way.
A win for Thomas Frank’s side would see them reach 45 points, a respectable haul considering Brentford’s relatively-new Premier League status.

Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
The upcoming game at Selhurst Park will feature two clubs struggling to keep their Premier League status in-tact.
Crystal Palace are only three points above the relegation zone despite being in 12th-place, whilst Leicester City are only out of the drop-zone by a single point. If the Foxes lose to Palace, then they could very well finish the weekend in the relegation zone.
Both clubs have endured poor 22/23 campaigns despite being established Premier League sides. Palace, who were such an exciting side last season, have sacked Patrick Viera and re-appointed veteran Roy Hodgson to oversee the last part of the season whereas Leicester, FA Cup winners two years ago, have endured their worst season since their return to the Premier League nine years ago. Both teams need to grab the three points, though only one can.

Nottingham Forest vs Wolves
These two Midlands clubs are only separated by a point, and Forest could overtake Wolves should they win at the City Ground this Saturday.
Forest and Wolves have only met once in the Premier League - the result being a 1-0 victory for Wolves back in October. Ruben Neves was the scorer that day, and Wolves fans will hope that the Portuguese midfielder will repeat his heroics and propel his club up the table.
Forest haven’t won in the league since 5 February, and Steve Cooper will hope that his side’s barren-run will come to an end as soon as possible.
Nottingham Forest vs Wolves, City Ground, Saturday 1st April at 3pm
Chelsea vs Aston Villa
Saturday’s football will conclude at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea take on Aston Villa.
Both Chelsea and Villa managed throughout March without losing a game and the two sides are currently level on points in the league table, Chelsea being ahead only on goal-difference.
The Blues’ rotten season has seen some semblance of improvement with the club reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League and picking up valuable points in the Premier League. A European finish remains possible, though it would take a run of form and overall consistency that Chelsea have failed to show this season.
Aston Villa’s fortunes have improved since Unai Emery took over, and a top-ten finish for them remains possible.
Chelsea v Aston Villa, Stamford Bridge, Saturday 1st April, at 6:30pm
West Ham vs Southampton
West Ham United will host fellow-strugglers Southampton on Sunday 2nd April. Both clubs have endured miserable campaigns this season, with West Ham being particularly bad due to their strong 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.
David Moyes’ job is being questioned by an increasing number of Hammers fans, whereas Ruben Selles has managed to improve Southampton’s chances of survival. The very definition of a six-pointer, both sides need the victory as much as each other.
West Ham could go as high as 13th with a win, whereas a Saints victory could lift them out of the bottom three if Bournemouth lose to Fulham.
West Ham vs Southampton, London Stadium, Sunday 2nd April, at 2pm
Newcastle United vs Manchester United
Newcastle United’s superb season could get even better if they beat Manchester United in a repeat of last month’s Carabao Cup final.
Manchester United were the winners on that day, though Newcastle’s form has improved since then. Alexander Isak has been the hero for the Magpies on the last couple of occasions, scoring twice against Nottingham Forest and once against Wolves.
Eddie Howe’s side look to be getting back to their best, though it would take an impressive performance to beat Erik ten Hag’s men. United were in wonderful form in the early part of the year, but a 7-0 hammering to Liverpool and a 0-0 draw against Southampton have put the brakes on their momentum.
Joelinton will return for Newcastle this Sunday, whereas his compatriot Casemiro (who scored in the EFL Cup Final) will be suspended due to his red card against Southampton.
Newcastle vs Manchester United, St James’ Park, Sunday 2nd April, at 4:30 pm
Everton vs Tottenham
Everton will hope to strengthen their survival hopes by beating Tottenham in Monday’s game - something the Toffees will fancy due to Spurs’ managerial situation.
Antonio Conte was sacked last weekend and the unity within the Spurs dressing room seems to have been shattered. The North London club blew a 3-1 lead against bottom-placed Southampton last time out, and an immediate response is needed if Spurs want to nail-down their standings in the top four.
Everton have avoided defeat in their last three Premier League games, whereas Spurs lost only once in March. Both teams need the three points, though for radically different reasons.
Everton vs Tottenham, Goodison Park, Monday 3rd April, at 8 pm
