English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 17 – 19 March 2023

Leaders Arsenal in London derby action as Chelsea host Everton and Tottenham go to Southampton in English Premier League this weekend.

The English Premier League signs off for the international football break this weekend – and there are opportunities for gains at the top of the table.

With the FA Cup quarter-finals also taking place before players are flung far and wide across the globe, it gives leaders Arsenal the chance to take a tantalising, nine-point lead at the summit.

Mikel Arteta’s men feature in Sunday’s sole league fixture against fellow London club Crystal Palace.

And they know they can put clear air between themselves and nearest challengers Manchester City, who are on FA Cup last eight duty against Championship leaders Burnley at the Etihad Stadium.

Chelsea are also in EPL action, as they face Everton at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s evening kick off.

Two wins from two, plus progression in the Uefa Champions League at the expense of Borussia Dortmund, has eased the piled up pressure on coach Graham Potter.

It’s an improving picture for the relegation-threatened Toffees, too, who have clambered out of the drop zone thanks to four points from their last possible six under Sean Dyche.

Tottenham are solidly in the top four shake up, even with their disintegrating relationship with coach Antonio Conte dominating the headlines.

Spurs go to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton on Saturday, with the home side sat at the foot of the Premier League table.

Friday night sees the EPL action begin with a battle between Nottingham Forest and Newcastle at the City Ground.

The Toon Army are out to bolster their top six credentials, while the hosts are one of a cluster of teams deeply concerned with matters at the wrong end of the standings.

Elsewhere on Saturday, the meeting between Wolves and Leeds creates a scrap between two more worried about the trap door to the Championship.

Brentford have more than half an eye on continental qualification when they welcome Leicester, who are in free fall following four consecutive EPL losses.

And Bournemouth attempt to record back-to-back wins to boost their push for survival when they travel to mid-table Aston Villa.
