Liverpool to put pressure on Manchester City

Premier League leaders Manchester City will be out of action over the weekend due to the FA Cup quarter-finals. Therefore, this will be Liverpool’s chance to exert more pressure on the leaders before they play their game in hand. The Reds play Fulham away from home and head into this match high in confidence following an impressive win over European giants Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. Fulham have suffered six losses in a row and that might continue on Sunday afternoon. With only eight matches left for the season, maximum points in the remaining matches will be crucial as we wait to witness another intriguing title run in in the Premier League.

Chelsea to struggle at Goodison Park

Chelsea were destined for another brutal defeat at home in their last match against Wolves, however, Eden Hazard saved their blushes with a moment of brilliance at the death to secure a 1-1 draw. On Sunday they travel to Goodison Park to play an out of form but stubborn Everton side. Chelsea have a good record against the Toffees but going by the result of their last meeting at Stamford Bridge in November, which ended in a 0-0 draw, the hosts could frustrate their visitors. Moreover, Eden Hazard will be seeking his first Chelsea goal at Goodison Park at the seventh attempt. Recently, Everton have turned to a more conservative safety-first approach against more quality opponents, a move which has seen them stifle the likes of Liverpool at home. Chelsea could be another victim on Sunday.

Leicester to heap more misery on Burnley

Brendan Rodgers registered his first win as Leicester City manager last week by beating relegation-threatened Fulham 3-1. On Saturday, they travel to face Burnley as they seek a second straight win since December where they beat Chelsea and Manchester City. Burnley, however, are still deep in the relegation scrap and will pose lots of problems to Rodgers’ side who are still learning to play his way. In spite of that, the Foxes possess more quality than the home side and just might get the job done.

West Ham to continue with great home run

West Ham will be seeking to get back to winning ways following an embarrassing loss away to 19th placed Cardiff City last time out when they welcome bottom team Huddersfield Town at the London Stadium. The Hammers are unbeaten at home in five matches while the Terriers have won only once away from home this term against Wolves in November. Since then, they have won one, drawn one, and lost 16 of their 18 matches. Manuel Pellegrini’s men are also looking to get into Europa League places and a win would come in handy.

Rondon’s form against Bournemouth to continue?

Only against Swansea City has Newcastle striker Salomon Rondon scored more Premier League goals than he has against Bournemouth, who have conceded three times to the Venezuelan striker. The two sides, whose safety in the Premier League is not yet guaranteed, meet on Saturday in what is expected to be close match. Both teams are high in confidence since they both got maximum points last weekend. Rondon has scored eight goals in the league this season and will be a handful for Nathan Ake and company.
