Premier League games to watch this week

The Premier League returns this weekend with some highly exciting matches for football fans around the world. Arsenal and Manchester City are competing for the league title while Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Liverpool are fighting for the remaining two Champions League places. No-one will want to miss the live football scores on Saturday and Sunday as all the best English teams return to action. 

1- Liverpool vs Bournemouth 

Jurgen Klopp’s men were spectacular last week at Anfield as they completely battered their bitter rivals Manchester United 7-0. They were only 1-0 ahead at the break but a completely one-sided second-half saw them pounding six goals, with Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez all scoring braces. 

Liverpool will come up against Bournemouth who fought really well against leaders Arsenal last weekend only to suffer a disappointing 3-2 defeat in the end, with Reiss Nelson scoring the winner in injury-time. 

2- Leeds United vs Brighton 

Confidence at Leeds doesn’t look very high as they have registered only a single victory in 2023 to be on the edge of the relegation zone. They haven’t seen a lot of improvement since Jesse Marsch was dismissed last month. 

The Whites will face a tough challenge on Saturday as they look to end Brighton & Hove Albion’s impressive run of form. The Seagulls have been playing amazing football under Roberto De Zerbi and have a good chance to finish in the top-four this season. 

3- Everton vs Brentford 

Everton cannot afford to lose their home matches if they want to stay in the Premier League for next term. They picked up a good result at Nottingham Forest last weekend, playing out a 2-2 draw to earn a point. 

Sean Dyche’s men will now go head-to-head with Brentford at Goodison Park, hoping to register full points. But the Bees are currently enjoying an impressive run of form, having not lost in the English league since 23 October. 

4- Leicester City vs Chelsea 

Brendan Rodgers is under a lot of pressure at the moment, with Leicester City losing all their last four matches in all competitions. The Northern Irish boss will be looking to shift the mood at the King Power Stadium by getting a positive result on Saturday. 

But the task will be difficult for the Foxes as Graham Potter’s Chelsea look to have got their mojo back. They edged Leeds with a 1-0 success last weekend before knocking Borussia Dortmund out of the Champions League by winning their last 16 tie on 2-1 aggregate. 

5- Tottenham Hotspur vs Nottingham Forest 

Tottenham’s Champions League campaign ended in a hugely disappointing fashion as they played out a 0-0 draw with AC Milan in the second-leg to lose their last 16 tie on 1-0 aggregate. 

They will be looking to bounce back in the Premier League against Nottingham Forest. Spurs couldn’t have asked for better opponents with the Tricky Trees winless in their last four top-flight matches. 

6- Crystal Palace vs Manchester City 

Pep Guardiola’s side cannot afford any more slip-ups if they want to pip Arsenal to the league crown. They were a little flat against Newcastle United last week but ultimately managed to seal full points with a 2-0 success. 

City will travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday as they seek to reduce the gap with the Gunners. The Eagles have been disappointing with their recent performances but are still in 12th place with 27 points from 25 matches. 

7- Manchester United vs Southampton 

United will still be smarting from the 7-0 drubbing at Liverpool in their previous Premier League encounter. The Red Devils’ response on Thursday was impressive as they registered a 4-1 victory over Real Betis in the first-leg of their Europa League last 16 tie. 

However, they will also be aiming to secure another good result on Sunday at the expense of Southampton who are one of the favourites to suffer relegation this season. 

8- West Ham vs Aston Villa

David Moyes’ future in East London looks highly uncertain after his side suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss at Brighton. The Scottish boss has been given a lot of time to turn around the club’s fortunes but another defeat against Aston Villa, who are currently on a two-game winning run, could prompt the hierarchy to dismiss him from his position.   

9- Fulham vs Arsenal 

Many people predicted Arsenal to suffer a slip-up and never cover from that. However, that hasn’t happened yet, with just 12 games remaining in the league season. 

The Gunners brilliantly recovered after conceding two goals against Bournemouth last weekend to win the home encounter by 3-2. They will also enter as favourites against Fulham on Sunday. 

10- Newcastle United vs Wolves 

Eddie Howe’s side have been struggling to perform well in recent weeks, with the Magpies winless in their previous five matches in all competitions. They will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at St. James’ Park. 

Wolves registered a great victory over Tottenham in their previous match, and so they will be full of confidence and are expected to give a good fight against Newcastle this week.
