Arsenal take on Swansea today in the Premier League, in what could prove to be a pivotal moment in the season.
Manchester United travel to Liverpool this weekend, and although the Reds are the form side this season, it is the former who I expect to be fighting to the death as the season draws to an end.
Yes, Jurgen Klopp is getting a fine tune out of his squad at present, but after seven matches they are yet to go through their blip (which all sides have), and their squad is hardly experienced in tough situations. This will not be an easy match, with the huge rivalry held between the two clubs changing the dynamic of this Premier League match-up. Despite Liverpool’s form at present, I would not rule out a United victory, although a draw must look the best result on paper for us currently.
That is not the only tough match for our rivals this week however, with the last two teams to be crowned PL champions taking on each other also. Leicester and Chelsea have not looked to be in top form as of yet this term, but I would hope that the Foxes were able to stop the Blues from snatching all three points, as they are not looking like challengers for this year’s title at present.
Manchester City are not blessed with the easiest of tasks either, with Ronald Koeman’s Everton side travelling to the Etihad today. The Toffees have conceded no more than one goal in any of their league outings thus far this term, and currently sit just four points off the top of the table. That means an unlikely win today would bring them to within a point of Man City, and would be a warning shot for any teams hoping to secure a place in the top four.
Tottenham travel to West Brom, while we take on Swansea at the Emirates, in should-win games, and this could be a great opportunity for us to gain an advantage over a number of rivals.
Which teams do you expect to get maximum teams this weekend? Is this a must-win game?
