Ottenham v Brighton kick off another action-packed week of Premier League football in north London on Saturday.
The Resurgent Spurs are looking to further strengthen their grip on fourth place with a fifth straight win and put even more pressure on falling rivals Arsenal, who could be six points clear of that final League berth. champions when they take the field against Southampton at Sainte Marie.
Meanwhile, Roy Hodgson’s Watford must surely beat Brentford at Vicarage Road to hope to start a late fight against an immediate return to the Championship.
A weekend top-flight slate truncated by the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley continues on Sunday, with West Ham leading the way after reaching the last four of the Europa League as they entertain Burnley, who are struggling against relegation, who took the surprise decision on Friday to sack the Premier League’s oldest manager, Sean Dyche, after 10 years and with just eight games left this season.
Meanwhile, two mismatched sides clash as Leicester travel to take on Newcastle at St James’ Park.
The action continues with a stellar midweek programme, including a huge showdown between hated north-west rivals Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will be hoping to see off their bitter foes and overtake Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final at the top, with Pep Guardiola’s men out of action until they host Brighton on Wednesday night.
The gap at the top of the table at some point remains as it is after a thrilling 2-2 draw between the top two teams in English football at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.
Elsewhere on Wednesday, Arsenal and Chelsea meet in a key all-London showdown at Stamford Bridge.
