English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 2 – 4 April 2022

The English Premier League returns after the international football break, with the battle resuming at both ends of the EPL table across the weekend.

It has become a two-horse title race in recent weeks and both contenders have fixtures against sides locked in the relegation dogfight.

Leaders Manchester City resume their title defence when they make the short trip north to Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola’s men have dropped five points in their last four Premier League games to keep the contest for the crown alive, while their hosts have lost their last three to sit four points adrift of safety.

The imperious form of Liverpool has put them hot on the heels of their north west rivals, with Watford their next Anfield assignment.

It’s a Saturday lunchtime match that kicks off the EPL weekend for the pair, with a win putting Jurgen Klopp’s side top at least temporarily, while the Hornets are desperate for a second successive victory to keep alive their battle for survival.

Manchester United wrap up Saturday’s action in the evening kick off against Leicester at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways before the domestic break while the Foxes are improving with the return from injury of several key players, winning three of their last four.

Crisis club Chelsea also feature on Saturday in a west London derby with Brentford.

Stamford Bridge is the venue as the Blues attempt to keep the show on the road following the sanctioning of Russian oligarch owner Roman Abramovich, coming into the tie with a five-point gap beneath them to fourth.

Arsenal are the ones chasing down their capital city rivals, with Crystal Palace their hosts on Monday night.

The pair meet at Selhurst Park with the Gunners going well in their bid to return to Uefa Champions League football next season.

And yet another London club are waiting to pounce on any slip ups south of the River Thames, as Tottenham face newly-minted Newcastle on Sunday.

Antonio Conte’s Spurs will go at least temporarily level with their north London foes if they can snaffle all three points against Eddie Howe’s men, who have roared away from relegation peril following their January cash injection.

Another tasty Sunday clash sees West Ham go up against Everton, with the Hammers scrapping hard for a place in the top six and the Toffees in serious danger of tumbling down to the Championship.

A West Midlands derby is also in store on Saturday, as Wolves and Aston Villa renew hostilities when they collide at Molineux.

Leeds are basking in back-to-back wins that have eased their relegation fears, with midtable Southampton the visitors to Elland Road on Saturday.

And Brighton should also be safe enough despite their horrific run of form, with equally hopeless Norwich making the trip to the Amex Stadium.
