English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 12 – 14 March 2022

Massive EPL weekend sees Manchester City and Liverpool on the road, Manchester United at home to Tottenham and drama aplenty at the bottom.

The heat is on up and down the English Premier League table with a full set of fixtures this weekend.

Liverpool have the opportunity to crank up the pressure at the top of the EPL standings when they contest the Saturday lunchtime kick off away to struggling Brighton.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are flying in second place and will close the gap to top spot to just three points if they can snaffle three points at the Amex Stadium.

Reigning champions Manchester City stand in the Reds’ way but will have to wait until Monday night to strike back in an increasingly tense title race.

Selhurst Park is the venue for Pep Guardiola’s men as they also hit the road, with former City youth coach Patrick Vieira and his Crystal Palace the opponents in London.

There’s a feast of Premier League action away from the battle at the top, too.

Manchester United and Tottenham have both failed to fully convince this season, each parting ways with a coach along the way, but remain in the hunt for a top four finish.

They face off at Old Trafford on Saturday evening with the Red Devils better placed in the table, but Antonio Conte’s side hold two potentially precious games in hand on their hosts.

Sunday afternoon sees Chelsea attempt to put the disruption of the sanctioning of Russian oligarch owner Roman Abramovich to one side yet again.

Boss Thomas Tuchel is under increasing pressure, none of which is of his own making, as he attempts to keep the Blues focused in their push for third place with a tricky home game against newly-loaded Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

Capital city rivals Arsenal are hot on the heels of the west Londoners, thanks to an identical run of four wins on the spin.

The Gunners are also in action on Sunday when they welcome Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester to the Emirates Stadium, with the Foxes winning their last two as their casualty list finally starts to diminish.

But enough glitz and glamour at the top end, let’s look at the basement where nerves are beginning to shred.

Leeds and Norwich lock horns at Elland Road on Sunday with both in horrific runs of form.

The visiting Canaries look increasingly doomed to relegation, while the Yorkshire club are desperate for any sort of victory to stop the slide under the new charge of American boss Jesse Marsch.

Saturday’s clash between Brentford and Burnley could be very nearly as anxious, although the Bees’ first win in an age at Carrow Road last weekend provided a modicum of breathing space.

Everton remain firmly in the drop zone mire, thanks in no small part to a 5-0 drubbing at Spurs on Monday night.

Frank Lampard’s embattled squad will have to step it up several gears when Wolves arrive at Goodison Park on Sunday, with the Black Country club having returned to winning ways on Thursday night.

They’re still pushing West Ham for a place in the top six, with the Hammers at home to Steven Gerrard’s improving Aston Villa.

Southampton are the epitome of midtable this time around, which is more than can be said for their visitors Watford, who start the weekend three points adrift of safety as they head to St Mary’s Stadium under the charge of veteran boss Roy Hodgson.
