As the Premier League draws to a close, the 34th round is unusually spread over four days and features some big headliners. Which ones in particular should you not miss and why invest your time in them?
Arsenal vs. Chelsea
A derby between two struggling teams, albeit both in completely different situations. Arsenal have moved out of the role of favourites to win the title with their loss to Manchester City last week, while Chelsea are only 11th in the table. They both need to win.
Arsenal will be the favourites, but with their mental state, it probably wouldn’t surprise anyone if Chelsea scored. The Blues, unlike the Gunners, have nothing to play for, while Arsenal fans are asking for three points. Absolutely.
In the last home round, they were basically losing from the first to the last minute, recall that they continue to miss stopper certainty William Saliba. Simply put – whoever wins will get a substantial mental boost.
Manchester United vs. Aston Villa
Paradoxically, this match is more interesting than Liverpool’s confrontation with Tottenham. Aston Villa are unstoppable since the arrival of Unaie Emery, Manchester have already won the Carabao Cup and are in the FA Cup final.
The Red Devils are struggling away but should dominate at home against the Villans. After all, they have beaten Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester City at Old Trafford this season. Six points clear of fifth place, Erik ten Hag’s charges can play in relative peace.
But so are Aston Villa. The latter is playing what the quality of the squad has had since the start of the season, but which they never dreamed of when Emery signed. In the last ten rounds they’ve picked up an awesome 26 points from a possible 30. That’s just a great record.
Liverpool vs. Tottenham
Liverpool have picked themselves up slightly, although it’s far from the best Jürgen Klopp era. Three wins and a theoretical chance of a Top 4 finish propel the Reds forward, as does a sold-out Anfield, always a potent weapon.
Spurs have clearly woken up to the change in coaching post, interim coach and former Tottenham player Ryan Mason. Against Manchester United, he managed to make up a two-goal deficit and keep their theoretical Champions League chances alive.
