Can Leicester win it at Old Trafford?
The fairy tale of Leicester is close to its designated ending with just a win required for the Foxes to be crowned champions. And what better place than Old Trafford to do that!
In the midst of all ups and downs in the season, Leicester have been remarkable in their pursuit of what would be their first ever Premier League crown. The absence of Jamie Vardy to suspension didn’t dampen their spirits in the previous round and shouldn’t be a concern this weekend either.
For Manchester United, it has been a season of disappointment with only FA Cup final to showcase for the efforts so far. With the team not sure of finishing in top four, the least they would want to do is to delay Leicester’s party.
Be prepared to see the new Champions crowned at Old Trafford.
Can Chelsea ruin Tottenham’s charge?
Tottenham have put paid to their title hopes with a draw against West Brom last weekend. Waiting to add further misery would be their London neighbours Chelsea when Spurs visit Stamford Bridge.
Dele Alli would be missing after being suspended but the only interest for Tottenham would be bragging rights – especially with Leicester showing no signs of letting their grasp on the title down.
For Chelsea, the season is over long time back and the only academic interest is in finishing in top ten. Of course they wouldn’t mind a derby win.
There could be a scoring draw at the ‘Bridge.
For the relegation battlers, it is another week of intrigue. The rejuvenated Newcastle welcome Crystal Palace to St. James Park knowing very well that only a victory could dispel any nerves. The sight of Palace isn’t a worrying sign, who have more or less nothing left to gain from Premier League.
Norwich City is under pressure after being pulled into relegation battle and would now like to gain some points against Arsenal. But the Gunners may not be as accommodative as they were against Sunderland and Norwich could be in for some more trouble.
Sunderland pulled out of trouble and the relegation zone but a daunting trip to Stoke City awaits them. The Potters have shipped goals in a dozen in the recent games, so expect them to shut shop and seek a win against the visitors.
Manchester City should look to consolidate their hold on top four, or for that matter top three, when they visit Southampton.
Liverpool visit Swansea City on the heels of their Europa League semi-final first leg trip to Villarreal. A solitary goal loss shouldn’t be a disaster but their thoughts on the trip to Swansea could be on the return leg of Europa Semis.
With the end in sight for all teams, irrespective of their ambitions, the weekend matches are going to be interesting.
