The champagne is on ice ahead of tonight as the Premier League title race could be concluded at The Hawthorns…
It’s almost time, then, to see if Chelsea can seal the deal against West Brom tonight but that’s not all there is to look forward to this weekend as the top four battle continues alongside a massive game at the bottom of the league.
Plenty to look forward to, then, so it can only be time for Rush Football’s Weekend Preview…
West Brom v Chelsea
Chelsea could be Premier League champions if they win against the Baggies tonight. On paper this looks like a tough game but the men from The Hawthorns are not in good form and so the Blues could be crowned tonight.
Everton v Watford
Everton have had a good season and will want to win their last home game for the fans. Watford, meanwhile, have had a topsy turvy year but they are staying up and that is all they could really ask for.
Manchester City v Leicester
Man City look in good form after beating Crystal Palace and should be in line for an entertaining match with Leicester. The Foxes will try to take the game to the Citizens but they will find it hard against a strong home team.
Bournemouth v Burnley
This could be very open. Both have done well to get safe for another season and so the shackles are off somewhat. The Cherries will be the favourites given they are the home but this really could go either way.
Middlesbrough v Southampton
Boro will be in the Championship next season so will want to finish in the Premier League in style for their final few games. They come up against a Southampton side that lost in the week and so might be able to get a win.
Sunderland v Swansea
Sunderland are down and could now have a bigger say in the relegation scrap than they would have if they were staying up. They beat Hull last weekend and if they can beat Swansea they’ll throw another spanner into the works.
Stoke v Arsenal
Arsenal are making a good go of getting into the top four and a win over Stoke would really make a statement. Usually the Gunners have struggled with this kind of game but Stoke are in poor form so they should fancy it.
Crystal Palace v Hull
This is a massive game. If Palace win they will be staying up but if Hull win then the battle to avoid the drop will become even more intense. This is a game that could really test everyone’s cool
West Ham v Liverpool
Liverpool need to win here after drawing with Southampton last time out. The game against West Ham is not going to be easy, though, with the Hammers now free to play without pressure. An important game for the Reds.
Tottenham v Manchester United
Tottenham could have nothing else to really play for come kick-off if Chelsea win but they do have the small matter of this being the last game at White Hart Lane. They’ll be eager to win, then, against Europa League finalists Manchester United.
