fter a midweek of Carabao Cup semi-finals, the Premier League returns this weekend and Saturday kicks off with a huge game in what’s left of the title race.
Chelsea go to Manchester City at lunchtime, desperate to cut the champions’ lead at the top after Pep Guardiola’s side pulled 10 points clear.
Before that, however, the game week actually got started on the south coast on Friday night as Brighton drew with rivals Crystal Palace.
Newcastle welcome Watford on Saturday afternoon in a big game at the bottom, while Norwich’s latest attempt to end their losing run sees Everton head to Carrow Road.
In a repeat of Monday night’s FA Cup third-round tie, Aston Villa face Manchester United, though this time the Midlands club are on home soil, before Liverpool host Brentford on Sunday in a fixture that produced one of the games of the season so far earlier in the campaign.
West Ham are back in the top four and looking to consolidate their position at home to Leeds, while Sunday rounds off with two of the chasing pack, Tottenham and Arsenal, meeting in the north London derby.
