There are just three games to go of one of the most dramatic Premier League season in history the race for the title looks to be going down to the wire, after Leicester City could only draw with West Ham, Spurs made a real statement of intent with a 4-0 win at Stoke. The gap is now just five points, game on!
Liverpool looking to continue fantastic form when they welcome Rafa Benitez back to Anfield on Saturday
Liverpool are finishing the season in red-hot form. Jurgen Klopp’s side have won their last four games in all competitions, scoring 14 goals in the process.
After their dramatic Europa League comeback against Dortmund, The Reds secured a 2-1 win at Bournemouth, before a superb performance as they dismantled Everton 4-0 at Anfield.
That vital three points came at a cost as Divock Origi suffered an ankle injury, which is likely to rule him out for 4-6 weeks. The Belgian striker had really started to find his feet in the Premier League, with three goals in his last three appearances.
They face a resurgent Newcastle side led by former Reds legend Rafa Benitez. The Toon Army are still not out of the relegation, but a win at Anfield could move them above the Sunderland and Norwich.
Klopp: “If anyone wants to celebrate Istanbul when seeing Rafa Benitez, you’re more than welcome. That’s how I’d welcome an old friend.”

But Liverpool will are in excellent form at the moment, and after nine consecutive away losses, it’s hard to see Newcastle turning it around at Anfield.
Chelsea looking to finish season on a high-note as they travel to Bournemouth
Chelsea will be looking to finish their turbulent season on a high when they face Bournemouth. Gus Hiddink’s side haven’t scored in their last two games, losing to Swansea and Man City.
The Blues will be without Thibaut Courtois who was sent-off in the defeat to City, with Asmir Begovic set to deputise. Last year’s dual player of the year winner Eden Hazard could return as continues to work his way back from a hip injury.
A win for Bournemouth could see them leapfrog Chelsea into 10th place, but Eddie Howe said his side aren’t thinking about a top 10 finish: “We haven’t talked about a top-10 finish, just this game and making sure we give our best and every effort we have to get a result.
“I think we owe it to the supporters, who haven’t seen a huge amount of home wins this season, to try to do everything we can to achieve that for them.”
Spurs looking to close gap on leaders with Monday night clash with West Brom
Tottenham Hotspur will go into their Monday Night Football clash with West Brom knowing that a win could close the gap on Leicester City, if they fail to beat Swansea.
Spurs produced one of their best performances of the season against Stoke on Monday with two-goals apiece from Harry Kane and Dele Alli sealing a 4-0 win. Mauricio Pochettino’s side are full of confidence and seem to be relishing the pressure a title run brings.
Can they heap the pressure back on the Foxes?
