After a fantastic couple of nights of Champions League and Europa League action, the Premier League returns for round 27 of action, with some huge games up and down the country. With Manchester City and Liverpool competing for the Capital One Cup at Wembley, their league fixtures will be played at a later date.
Chelsea FC travel to Southampton for the highlight fixture of Saturday afternoon. The Blues are still unbeaten in the Premier League since the arrival of Gus Hiddink, while PSG are the only team to get the better of Hiddink since Christmas.
They arrive in the match in fine form after a 5-1 dismantling of Newcastle at Stamford Bridge. Diego Costa has enjoyed a return to form with four goals in his last five league games and we all know that he is almost unplayable when he is at his best.
But they will face a Southampton defence who haven’t conceded a goal for 554 minutes. Ronald Koeman’s will be aiming for a fifth successive league victory at St Mary’s.
This promises to be a fantastic encounter.
Premier League title clues on Super Sunday
Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to keep pace with Leicester City when they face Swansea City on Sunday afternoon. Spurs enjoyed a fine midweek victory over FC Fiorentina as strikes from Ryan Mason, Erik Lamela and an own-goal sent them into the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won their last five league games including a superb 2-1 away win at Manchester City. Harry Kane will return to the side and wear a protective mask after suffering a facial injury.
But they will be without Mousa Dembele and Tom Carroll who are out with respective groin and Achilles problems, while Jan Vertonghen and Clinto Njie remain absent.
But with confidence high and Tottenham playing quality football they should have little trouble seeing off Swansea.
The final game of the weekend is one of the biggest games in English football as Manchester United take on Arsenal. United sailed into the quarter-finals of the Europa League beat Midtjylland 5-1, while Arsenal were beaten by two Lionel Messi goals in the Champions League.
Louis Van Gaal’s will be without 14 of his first team squad including David De Gea, Wayne Rooney and Chris Smalling. They are quickly losing ground on the Champions League spots and know they need a win to keep up the pressure on Man City.
But they will be buoyed by the fact Arsenal haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2006. Stand by for a typically feisty encounter.
