English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 13 – 15 May 2023

Manchester City and Arsenal battle for Premier League title, as Manchester United and Liverpool scrap for top four EPL places this weekend.

There are just three rounds of the English Premier League to play, with the battle still firmly on in the title race, squabble for European qualification and for EPL survival this weekend.

The two contenders for the English crown play on Sunday.

And there could be consequences at both ends of the Premier League table when defending champions Manchester City make the short trip down the M62 to Everton.

Pep Guardiola’s side are a point clear at the top and have a precious game in hand as they bid to go back-to-back, while their Goodison Park hosts climbed out of the relegation zone on Monday with an incredible 5-1 win at Brighton.

With the Seagulls in a flap, Arsenal will fancy their chances to taking the race at the summit all the way as they tackle Roberto de Zerbi’s team at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have won two in a row as they eye the 90-point mark to complete an outstanding campaign.

A London derby completes a hat-trick of EPL fixtures on Sunday, as West Ham head east along the District Line to go up against a Brentford side still within a mathematical shout of qualifying for European football next season.

Monday night’s Premier League match could be a thriller, too, as Liverpool keep their Champions League dream burning on the road at Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are in inspired form and pushing hard to crack the top four right at the death, while the Foxes are in deep trouble, kicking off the weekend inside the drop zone.

What happens in Saturday’s clash between Manchester United and Wolves at Old Trafford will play a part in the mood of the Reds, with a late season slump leaving the Red Devils just a point clear of their bitter rivals.

Losing their last two hasn’t helped and they won’t expect to have it all their own way against Julen Lopetegui’s improving Black Country side.

The weekend kicks off on Saturday lunchtime with yet more top-versus-bottom drama, when Newcastle enter the Elland Road cauldron to play Leeds.

Eddie Howe’s men still have work to do to be certain of a top four finish, while veteran ex-Toon Army chief Sam Allardyce leads his charges into battle on home turf for the first time, all while staring the threat of relegation firmly in the face.

It didn’t help Big Sam and Co one bit that Nottingham Forest joined Everton in picking up a precious Bank Holiday Monday victory.

Steve Cooper’s side will have a Saturday swing at Chelsea, who finally picked up three points of their own under Frank Lampard last weekend ahead of the Stamford Bridge clash.

Aston Villa go into their tussle with Tottenham knowing a healthy win would see them leapfrog their visitors in the scramble for continental qualification.

Spurs finally turned around their miserable run of results last weekend, while the Villans tasted a rare defeat since the turn of the year under the impressive charge of Unai Emery.

Southampton are at the miracles required stage going into their game with Fulham at St Mary’s Stadium.

The Saints need a win and everything else to go their way if they are to stand any chance of retaining their top flight status for one more week.

But there are no such concerns at Selhurst Park, as Crystal Palace and Bournemouth play out a late season contest bathed in the glow of the sunlit uplands of midtable security.
