We have another exciting weekend of Premier League football to look forward to. Here, we take a look at some of the key games at the top of the table…
Man Utd vs Liverpool
There is no better place to start than at Old Trafford as Manchester United entertain Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils will be fresh off the back of their Europa League semi-final first leg against AS Roma so Liverpool will hope to take advantage of any heavy legs.
United currently sit second in the table and haven’t lost since back in January so they’ll be favourites to take all three points. Bruno Fernandes will once again be key for Man Utd but Marcus Rashford could also play an important role after returning to full fitness recently.
As for Liverpool, with Sadio Mane miss-firing lately, they’ll be looking to Mohamed Salah to provide the goal threat at Old Trafford. The Egyptian is enjoying another prolific campaign in front of goal and according to TopScorersFootball.com Salah has netted 20 times in the Premier League this season. Only Harry Kane has scored more, so Salah will be hoping to boost his chances of winning the golden boot with a goal this weekend.
Tottenham vs Sheffield United
However, even if Salah does find the target against United, Harry Kane should be confident of scoring at least once when Tottenham welcome bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United to north London on Sunday.
Spurs recently sacked Jose Mourinho so stand-in boss Ryan Mason will be in the dug out and he’ll be looking to bounce back after overseeing Tottenham’s defeat to Manchester City in the League Cup final last weekend.
Mason should get his first win under his belt on Sunday as Spurs are heavy favourites to see off Sheffield United on home soil. The Blades are heading for the Championship as they sit rock bottom on just 17 points so I can see Kane having a field day in front of goal.
Crystal Palace vs Man City
Manchester City will look to move one step closer to securing the title when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime.
Pep Guardiola’s side will be in confident mood after putting one foot in the final of the Champions League with an impressive 2-1 comeback victory away to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
City are on-course for the treble as they’ve already secured the League Cup and are 10 points ahead of second-placed Man Utd with just five games remaining. Therefore, another win at Palace will put them on the cusp of reclaiming the title.
