English Premier League Weekend Preview

A preview to the games played this weekend in English Premier League with predictions to where this week's game are headed.

Who gets closer to the title, who gets relegated, who stays in the Champions League?

Chelsea  vs Tottenham  Hotspur

2 sides struggling for the elusive fourth Champions League spot. Both sides have a point to prove after the mid-week disappointments. Chelsea on their home turf would like to register a win and mount a challenge for the fourth spot. Spurs on the other hand would like to get themselves out of a slump that has seen them with just 1 win in last 5 games. Expecting Chelsea to overcome Spurs challenge.

Bolton vs Blackburn Rovers

It will be difficult for Bolton players to lift themselves up after agonizing events of last week's FA cup tie. Blackburn has put up a decent string of results to lift them out of relegation. Blackburn to continue their recent revival.

Norwich City vs Wolves

Wolves continue to be bookmaker's favorite for relegation to Chamionship.40 points are considered to be enough to avoid Relegation. Norwich are 4 short with 36 points. With a win in this game 1 point in remaining 8 should not be a big deal. Expecting Norwich to do just that.

Swansea vs Everton

Swansea has been the surprise package of the season. At the beginning of the season tipped to be relegated the Welsh side has shown grit and determination throughout the season. A strong end to the season could see them qualify for Europa league. Everton are 2 places below Swansea in the league table. A win for Everton could see them overcome Swansea in the league table. Predicting a close match with Everton nicking in a late goal to secure 3 points.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa

Arsenal has hit a rich vein of form and look poised to maintain their hold on to the 3rd position in the league table. It should be an easy job dispatching Villa at Emirates Stadium.

Liverpool vs Wigan

Liverpool and Wigan both have 1 win in 5 games.Wigan look determined to hold on 19th league position and are bookmakers favorite to get relegated. But its Liverpool and Kenny Dalglish who have a point to prove after their recent performances. Steven Gerrard could yet again play an important role. Liverpool to post a win in this fixture.

Sunderland vs QPR

QPR manager Mark Hughes wants Wednesday night's comeback win over Liverpool to be a season-defining moment .QPR has toughest end-of-season run-in of any relegation-threatened team. A victory in this game could prove handy but overall picture appears bleak. Under Martin O'Neill, who took charge of the team in December, Sunderland embarked on an impressive run of seven league wins in 10 matches. Sunderland to continue their fine league form and register a win in this fixture.

Stoke City vs Manchester City

If Man City win here they go back to the top of table. On the other hand Stoke City at home has had positive results against the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs. This should be a tight game with both sides settling with 1 point each.

West Brom vs Newcastle

Newcastle Manager Alan Pardew would aim to end their five match winless run. Newcastle has players coming back from injury. For West Brom who is 5 points above relegation zone it is a big chance to score a win over a Newcastle side lacking confidence. West Brom to take 3 points and ensure safety from relegation.

Manchester United vs Fulham

If Man City wins on Saturday then Manchester United have to win on Monday night to stay at the top. The league leaders should have a easy job at their hands considering Fulham's travel on the road has fetched only 2 wins so far.

Towards the end of this week's fixtures we will be one step closer to determine the champions. Keep following your favorite teams as the season unfolds.
