Sheffield United v Brighton, Saturday, 15:00
Who will have the most yellow cards?
There’s no doubt about it, Sheffield United have been the surprise package this season with Chris Wilder’s men finding themselves rubbing shoulders with the big boys with only a couple of months of the season remaining.
The Blades were probably most people’s favourites for relegation when the season started, having gained promotion from the Championship last May, but now find themselves in a battle for Champions League football as they jostle with Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United.
As for Brighton, after a promising start to the season, the Seagulls have seen their form drop away somewhat in the second half of the campaign and Graham Potter’s men now find themselves just three points off the drop zone without a win in their last five.
With so much at stake for both sides, don’t be surprised to see a somewhat feisty affair on Saturday with plenty of fiercely contested tackles across the park and with Sheffield United receiving 51 yellow cards this season and Brighton 38 – the booking count might just be on the high side.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle, Saturday, 15:00
How many goals will there be?
When Steve Bruce was announced as the manager of Newcastle United back in the summer there were plenty of Toon fans voicing their concerns about the appointment, but in fairness, the former Manchester United defender has done a pretty good job in his first season in charge of his boyhood team.
Prior to their 4-0 defeat to Arsenal last week Newcastle hadn’t lost in four Premier League games and now sit 13th in the table, some seven points above the drop zone, which is probably better than even the most optimistic Magpie would have predicted in August.
As for Palace, an alarming run of three straight defeats and two draws has seen them plummet down the table with Roy Hodson’s men now below their opponents at the weekend looking somewhat uncomfortably over their shoulder after what was a promising start to the campaign.
When these two sides met at St James’ Park back in December the game was decided by a late Almiron goal when it looked to be heading towards a rather tame 0-0 draw and it would be no surprise to see another cagey affair on Saturday between the lowest and joint lowest goal scorers in the Premier League.
Leicester v Manchester City, Saturday, 17:30
What will the final result be?
It’s been a pretty mixed few weeks for Manchester City all things considered. After dominating the game against Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last time out they eventually went down 2-0 and just a week later they find themselves on the receiving end of a two-year European ban for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.
On the pitch, City have looked a shadow of the side which won the title last season and are now more than 20 points behind Liverpool in the title race with over two months of the season remaining despite a 2-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday.
As for Leicester, along with Sheffield United, they have been the side that have exceeded all expectations this campaign and now find themselves in a battle with Pep Guardiola’s men for the honour of being named runners-up to the Reds from Anfield come May.
When these two faced each other at the Etihad in December there was much more to play for, with City eventually coming out the 3-1 victors, but with the off-field distractions, not to mention the small matter of a Champions League tie with Real Madrid on the horizon, don’t be surprised to see that scoreline reversed at the King Power Stadium at the weekend.
