This weekend could be a historic one for the Barclays Premier League with Leicester City needing just three more points to secure the most remarkable title win in the history of English football. The Foxes travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United, while Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea in a London Derby on Monday night.
Leicester City on the brink of Premier League glory and could secure the title against Manchester United
Sunday afternoon could see Leicester City claim their first ever Premier League title and the most miraculous in the history of the top-flight.
After Spurs draw with West Brom, the Foxes know they only need another three points to secure the title. Claudio Ranieri will be without the services of top scorer Jamie Vardy who has received an additional one-game ban. But his replacement Leonardo Ulloa, who scored twice last week, should be fit to start.
Manchester United could be unchanged from their FA Cup semi-final win over Everton, where skipper Wayne Rooney returned to action.
It will be interesting to see how Leicester approach the game now they know they only need three more points. But they will be happy with a draw, knowing they have a home game with struggling Everton to come.
Tottenham Hotspur could be out of the title race by the time they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. While Liverpool look to finish season strongly
Spurs know that by the time their Monday night clash with Chelsea begins their chances of a first Premier League title could be over.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side could only manage a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday and will be without Dele Alli who is serving a three-game suspension for violent conduct.
But the White Hart Lane side have been handed a boost after boss Pochettino said he will extend his deal beyond 2021, saying: “It was an easy decision when you feel the love of the people and the potential of the club is massive, so why change?”
“We create a good atmosphere on the training ground and I think we can achieve big things in the future. I believe in this project and this club. I want to stay here.”
While Chelsea have very little to play for the chance to end their rivals title hopes will be a big motivation. They bounced back to some form with a convincing 4-1 win over Bournemouth where Eden Hazard bagged his first goal of the league season.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will be looking to finish the season on a high-note when they face Swansea on Sunday.
The Reds suffered a late 1-0 loss to Villarreal in the Europa League so Klopp may be tempted to rest some of his stars for the return leg on Thursday 5th May. But the likes of Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino could all feature.
