3 things to expect from the Premier League and Manchester United

3 things to expect from the Premier League and Manchester United

Here are three (3) things for you to expect from matchday 35 this weekend.

This is certainly one of the games of the weekend anywhere in the world, with two direct rivals going head-to-head.

Watford believe (they really have plenty of belief) that they can survive the drop and still have a fair chance to do just that.

The Hornets will have to walk the talk on Saturday when they host Burnley at the Vicarage Road.

Both clubs are separated by just two points with Burnley looking in better shape going into this particularly decisive match.

Two wins and a draw have seen them move out of relegation waters, at least for now and will be looking to make it back-to-back wins for the first time in a very long while when they face fellow troubled club, Watford.

The Hornets are in a much-deeper mess after four successive defeats, including a 5-1 demolition by Manchester City in the last match, have left them 19th on the table, nine points off their visitors, Burnley, who occupy the 17th position.

The Toffees have a huge challenge on their hands, they take on Thomas Tuchel’s Blues, who will be looking to get a result as they look to distance themselves from the Champions League rat race.

Former Chelsea boss and legend, Frank Lampard, will be banking on his Super Eagles playmaker, Iwobi, to get something positive out of this game against his former club.

It does look like the Premier League title race will go down to the last game this season as Manchester City and Liverpool simply do not want to drop points.

Both teams are flying and I expect that to remain the case despite facing two tricky away opponents.

However, on paper, it seems the Reds from Merseyside have the sterner test ad they face the resurgent and ever-improving Newcastle United.

The Magpies have definitely forgotten what relegation is following an incredible work done by their manager, Eddie Howe.

Howe has managed to turn the fortunes of the latest moneybags around since he took over reigns and with 12 points from a possible 12 in the last four matches, Newcastle have moved from relegation favourites to European football contenders.

At Elland Road, Leeds United haven’t had much luck with their new manager Jesse Marsch. The Lilly Whites welcome to their home another efficient match in defending champions, Manchester City, who should have no problems dispatching the worst defense in the PL this season.

It’s not a question of if Manchester City will win but how many goals Leeds United will concede.

Finally, this weekend will see the rat race continue in the top four after Manchester United and their wonderful interim boss, Ralf Rangnick, decided to make the race for Champions League places a straight fight between two North London rivals, Arsenal and Tottenham.

First up, fifth-placed Tottenham will have a chance to leapfrog the Gunners into fourth place, at least for 24 hours, when they host Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman’s Leicester City on Saturday.

Then, on Sunday, it’s a London Derby when Arsenal travel to the Olympic Stadium to face West Ham United.

Tottenham and Arsenal are separated by two points, which means this weekend will be decisive for both clubs.

Yes, let me make Manchester United fans happy with this little bonus and glimmer of hope.

But can the Devils see off Brentford on Monday to take advantage of possible slip-ups from the London clubs at the weekend?
