The Premier League enters it matchweek 27 as the race for supremacy begins to take shape. The biggest match of the weekend see Arsenal make a trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool.

Manchester United host AFC Bournemouth on Saturday in the day’s early fixture. The Red devils lies 6th on the league log with 48 points and knowing a win over the Cherries will push them closer to the top four clubs. United after their EFL Cup win will like to bounce back in the league as they host Bournemouth at Old Trafford. The Cherries are also in to defy all odds and win at Old Trafford as said by manager Eddie Howe.

Manchester City will travel to the Stadium of Light on Sunday to face Sunderland. Sunderland have been battling relegation and will be willing to win the game to push for survival. Jermaine Defoe has scored 8 goals against City, a tally he has only bettered against Wigan. City has won 17 out of the last 27 meetings between them and know they must win if they want to stand any chance of stripping Chelsea to the title.

Liverpool will welcome Arsenal on Saturday Night Football. Liverpool lost 3-1 to Leicester City last time round and will be seeking to win infront of their fans as they seek to finish in the top 4. The Reds have been disappointing in 2017 and has just a league win to show for in 2017. Arsenal on the other hand knows only at least a draw can push their hopes of a top four place into reality.
