Liverpool and Arsenal have plenty to prove when they meet in Round 27 of the Premier League this weekend.
Arsenal lead Liverpool by one point in fourth place, with both vying for the fourth and final Champions League spot.
Liverpool will be eager to make amends for their embarrassing 3-1 loss to struggling Leicester last week, while Arsenal have looked unconvincing much of the season and face Champions League elimination next week at the hands of Bayern Munich.
Chelsea’s formidable lead looks secure with a win at West Ham in the offing.
Chelsea lead Tottenham by 10 points atop the table, while West Ham is ninth and having difficult to string wins together.
Tottenham will retain their second spot behind Chelsea on the ladder with a home win over Everton.
Spurs should have little trouble keeping pace against Everton, who are unbeaten in eight matches, but have found wins difficult to come from.
Breathing down Tottenham’s neck are Manchester City, who trail by just a point and are building momentum in the latter part of the season.
City once dreaded trips to Sunderland, losing every encounter their for the four years from 2010 to 2014.
That situation has been reversed in its last three visits and the bookies are tipping a fourth win this week with City on $1.28 for the away win, with Sunderland at $10 and $6 for a draw.
City’s local rivals Manchester United face a similarly lopsided encounter when they host Bournemouth.
Leicester marked their first match of their post-Ranieri era with a resounding win over Liverpool, and their fortunes are expected to continue on an upward trajectory against Hull this week.
