Wolves v Crystal Palace
Wolves will be hoping to continue their push for Premier League survival as they take on a Palace side who have been in much-better form since Roy Hodsgon was reintroduced into the dugout.
Both sides are now effectively safe from the drop, but neither manager will relax until that’s a mathematical certainty. Diego Costa recently bagged his first Premier League goal since 2017, whilst Eberiche Eze recently netted twice against Southampton.
Wolves v Crystal Palace, Molineux Stadium, 25th April, kick-off 19:30 GMT.
Aston Villa v Fulham
High-flying Aston Villa will host a Fulham side whose season has gone off the rails somewhat - though a lot of that can be explained via the absence of Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Villa outclassed Newcastle in their last home game, and they’ll look to repeat that performance against Fulham. If the star aligns for them, Villa could qualify for Europe this season and could perhaps even muscle their way into the Champions League positions.
Fulham’s season stagnated with Mitrovic’s suspension, but the Serbian will be back in mid-May.
Aston Villa v Fulham, Villa Park, 25th April, kick-off 19:45 GMT.
Leeds United v Leicester City
This bottom-of-the-table clash will feature Leeds United and Leicester City - two former champions whose seasons have been poor.
Leeds have had the misfortune of losing two recent home games by respective 5-1 and 6-1 scorelines, and they’ll hope that their hosting of the Foxes goes a lot better.
Leicester need to pick up points if they’re to survive in the Premier League, and that involves winning almost every game they have left. Leicester produced an impressive performance in their game against Manchester City, but they were unable to take their chances in that fixture.
Dean Smith will be under pressure to keep the 2021 FA Cup winners in the top-flight, whilst Javi Gracia has been unable to stop the rot at Elland Road.
Leeds United v Leicester City, Elland Road, 25th April, kick-off 20:00 GMT.
Nottingham Forest v Brighton
Struggling Nottingham Forest will host high-flying Brighton at the City Ground on Wednesday 26th April.
Forest are battling to maintain their Premier League status and they’ll need a huge performance if they wish to derail Brighton’s push for European football next season.
Steve Cooper’s side have beaten Liverpool and drawn with Manchester City this season, so taking points from Brighton isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Forest will, however, have a tough job on their hands, as Brighton have been one of the most impressive sides in the entire league this season.
A win for the Seagulls would keep them in contention for a Europa League finish and help fend off the teams who surround them.
Nottingham Forest v Brighton, City Ground, 26 April, kick-off, 19:30 GMT.
Chelsea v Brenford
Chelsea’s dismal season has not been made any better by their recent elimination from the Champions League, and now the only goal they have is to not let their league campaign get any worse.
Chelsea haven’t been this far down the table at this stage of the season for well-over 20 years, but their position could be improved with a win over Brentford, who have had an impressive season.
The Bees are on-course to top their 21/22 campaign , though a recent run of three straight defeats is something Thomas Frank will be keen to forget.
Chelsea v Brentford, Stamford Bridge, 26 April, kick-off 19:45 GMT.
West Ham v Liverpool
West Ham United’s season has been poor, especially considering how well they’ve done over the last 2 seasons. The Hammers are battling to remain in the Premier League and their next test will be against Liverpool, who themselves have been a shadow of themselves this season.
Liverpool could still qualify for the Champions League, but they’ll need to find consistency fast. For every good result the Reds have achieved this season, they seem to fall to a defeat in the next game. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his side begin to accrue wins in the Premier League to finish this embarrassing season on a high.
West Ham v Liverpool, London Stadium, 26 April, kick-off 19:45 GMT.
Man City v Arsenal
A huge title-decider will take place at the Etihad Stadium when Man City welcome Arsenal knowing the win will put them on track for another title.
City defeated Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates a few months ago, and another win over them will likely put them on-course for a third Premier League title in a row.
The Gunners have been fantastic this season, but one thing that’ll alert their fans is the club’s miserable record at the Etihad Stadium. Arsenal haven’t won there in the league since the 2015/16 season and their last league victory over City came in the next season.
Arsenal could still become league champions, but they’ll need to finally defeat Pep Guardiola’s City to get there.
Man City v Arsenal, Etihad Stadium, 26 April, kick-off 20:00 GMT.
Everton v Newcastle
Struggling Everton will host Newcastle and the Toffees will be hoping to repeat their 1-0 victory over the Magpies from last season.
Sean Dyche’s side are battling to stay out of the bottom-three, whilst Eddie Howe’s men are battling to stay in the top-four. Both sides have had contrasting seasons, though the returns of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin will surely bolster morale at Goodison Park.
Newcastle’s recent away performance at Aston Villa was undoubtedly their worst of the season, although they do come into the game off the back of an incredible 6-1 win over Spurs.
A win for Newcastle would fortify their hopes for the top-four and stand them in good stead for their remaining games.
Everton v Newcastle, Goodison Park, 27 April, kick-off 19:45 GMT.
Southampton v Bournemouth
This South Coast derby has the added drama of centering around Southampton’s Premier League status.
Saints will host Bournemouth on Thursday 27th April and the mood at St Mary’s could be extremely low should the home side lose. Southampton have been at the bottom of the table for months now, and several supporters have begun to accept the club’s fate.
It wasn’t long ago when Bournemouth were in a similar position, however the Cherries have been in fine form since January and their relegation worries could become a thing of the past should they beat their neighbors.
Southampton v Bournemouth, St Mary’s, 27 April, kick-off 19:45 GMT.
Tottenham v Manchester United
The battle for the top-four is on as Tottenham host Manchester United on Thursday night.
Spurs’ season has been up-and-down, ranging from the highs of beating Manchester City to the lows of being defeated at home by Bournemouth and being thrashed 6-1 by Newcastle last time out.
Heung-min Son looks to be coming back to form, whilst Harry Kane’s impressive season has gone somewhat unnoticed due to the headline-grabbing Erling Haaland. Both legends will need to be at the top of their game if they wish to get the better of the United side who completed the double over them last season.
Manchester United’s season has become somewhat patchy since their League Cup win, though the arrivals of previously-injured players such as Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford will surely bolster their spirits.
Both sides must win to keep Newcastle at bay, though only one can walk out with the three points.
Spurs v Man United, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, 27 April, kick-off 20:15 GMT.
