Liverpool beat Chelsea to keep pressure on Manchester City: Premier League predictions

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United also triumph to boost their top-four hopes

We are down to the final five Premier League weeks of the season and there is still plenty to be decided at both ends of the table.

This weekend's action begins on Friday as Leicester City play host to Newcastle United at 11pm UAE time.

Tottenham Hotspur start the Saturday action off as they entertain already relegated Huddersfield Town at 3.30pm.

There are four 6pm games with third-bottom Cardiff City desperately needing a win at Burnley to boost their flagging hopes of beating the drop.

Manchester United will look to return to winning ways, after losing to Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League in midweek, when they take on West Ham United at 8.30pm.

Sunday sees Manchester City look to go back to the top of the table, at least for a few hours when they go up against Crystal Palace at 5.05pm.

Liverpool will be top, regardless of what City do, come Sunday night, if they defeat Chelsea at 7.30pm at Anfield.

The final match on Monday sees Arsenal try to improve their inconsistent away form with three points at FA Cup finalists Watford, that game starting at 11pm at Vicarage Road.
