The 2018/19 Premier League campaign is into the final stretch with plenty still to be decided.
While the majority of eyes are firmly fixed on the title race, the battle for a top-four finish is the fiercest it’s ever been with four teams still able to claim two spots.
Friday night football returns with Liverpool welcoming Huddersfield to Anfield. Saturday sees Spurs bidding to make it four wins from four in their new stadium as London rivals West Ham United make the trip and the battle for the best of the rest title sees Vicarage Road take centre stage.
Here, we preview the big matches you can look forward to.
Liverpool vs Huddersfield
The Reds have hit form at the perfect time. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won nine on the bounce in all competitions, progressing once again to the semi-finals of the Champions League, all while keeping the pressure firmly on Manchester City.
Mohamed Salah looks as dangerous as ever. He’s scoring goals, winning penalties and creating havoc in the opposition’s penalty area. With the Golden Boot up for grabs, you can expect to see him in the thick of things on Friday night.
The visitors are already relegated and have nothing to play for. But teams in this situation are tricky opponents due to their unpredictability.
On one hand, they fear nothing so can express themselves while looking to prove to the manager that they deserve a long-term future with the club. Alternatively, they could already be on the beach and after seven losses on the bounce, this could well be their mentality heading into the game.
Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham
The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is already a fortress for Mauricio Pochettino’s men. They’ve won all four of their matches there and are yet to concede a goal on home soil. It’s a good sign for next season and is no doubt a run they’d like to stretch.
Though not in the greatest of form, Spurs looked to be title challengers before tailing off, they have shown they can deliver when it matters most. A victory of Manchester City in the Champions League proves that.
West Ham have little to play for, and have won just one of their last six matches, while the hosts are in need of all three points to ensure they’re playing in Europe’s elite competition next season. But the London rivals won’t make it easy for Pochettino’s side, with bragging rights up for grabs.
Watford vs Wolves
The best of the rest title is up for grabs and four teams have a chance of claiming seventh spot in the Premier League this term, two of which meet on Saturday as Watford welcome Wolves to Vicarage Road.
The hosts are currently in possession of seventh position after a 1-1 draw with Southampton on Tuesday evening. Andre Gray salvaged a point with a last minute equaliser after Shane Long shattered a Premier League record with a goal after just eight seconds.
Wolves have been in patchy form as of late but will look to end their return to the English top flight season on a high. Revenge on the team who ended their FA Cup final dreams would go a long way to ensuring that is the case.
