Crunch time in the top flight

Published Add your comment

A huge weekend of Barclays Premier League football sees a host of fixtures that will impact both the top and the bottom of the table.

On Saturday, Manchester City will aim to establish a commanding position in fourth place when they travel to Goodison Park.

City have had a miserable run against Everton, having lost six out of the last seven meetings between the two teams.

Elsewhere, Blackpool will want a repeat of their victory earlier in the season over Tottenham, who are still chasing a spot in the Champions League.

Also on Saturday, West Ham welcome Blackburn in a relegation clash, Sunderland are away at Bolton and Newcastle face Birmingham.

Sunday sees Manchester United welcome Chelsea in a potential title decider, with the Red Devils just three points ahead of their rivals.

Carlo Ancelotti is again facing a choice between Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres, while United have a fresh squad after resting key players during the week.




 

Meanwhile, Arsenal travel to Stoke on Sunday with their title hopes all but over. Thomas Vermaelen, out since August, could make a return to action for the Gunners.

Aaron Ramsey will start ahead of the injured Cesc Fabregas, returning to the Britannia Stadium a year after his horrific leg break.

Finally, on Monday, Liverpool travel to Fulham as they chase European football, looking to hold off their rivals and stay fifth.
