The English Premier League continues to head towards its climax this weekend, with a full set of fixtures and a reunion that seldom disappoints.
Professional thorn-in-the-side Jose Mourinho puts his Tottenham side up against his former club Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
It’s a double assault for the Portuguese schemer, who can kill off United’s long-shot of winning the EPL while potentially propelling his own side back into the top five with three points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
That will partly depend on the result across the capital city on Saturday evening, as fifth-placed Chelsea meet Crystal Palace in a London Derby at Selhurst Park, needing to rid themselves of last weekend’s Stamford Bridge capitulation.
Improving Liverpool can put the squeeze on their top six rivals earlier in the day, too, as they tackle tricky customers Aston Villa at Anfield.
Champions elect Manchester City kick off Saturday’s Premier League programme at the Etihad Stadium, meanwhile, as they welcome Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds.
There’s a tantalizing Sunday clash at the London Stadium, too, when fourth-placed West Ham go up against Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester, who start the weekend in third place.
Arsenal continue their grind of a campaign on Sunday night at Bramall Lane, as they attempt to avoid yet another slip up away to rock bottom Sheffield United.
The lower reaches of the Premier League are in focus for the lunchtime kick off as well, with Newcastle setting out to drag Burnley back into the relegation mire when they go to Turf Moor.
Brighton also remain in the drop mix despite their improving recent form, with an Amex Stadium game against top six hopefuls Everton their next assignment on Monday night.
West Brom continue their scramble against a return to the Championship earlier in the evening with a winnable match at home to Southampton.
Fulham have much the same task on their hands as they kick off the EPL weekend on Friday night, with Wolves the visitors to Craven Cottage.
