With just a handful of games left of the Premier League season, the importance of every match increases tenfold.
With the race for the league title the fiercest it’s ever been, top-four places still up for grabs and the final relegation place still not yet decided, it’s one of the most exciting Premier League campaigns ever.
Tuesday could be one of the most important matchdays of the season with results having serious repercussions at the top of the table.
Watford vs Southampton
While it might seem as though Watford’s Premier League campaign is over, the Hornets do still have something to play for. Currently sitting in eighth position, Javi Gracia’s men can still claim the title of the best of the rest.
As things stand, it’s a four-way battle between the FA Cup finalists, Everton, Leicester City and Wolves. But a win against Southampton puts Watford in control of their destiny with just three games remaining.
The first meeting between the two sides earlier in the season ended in a 1-1 draw and heading into this one the form is fairly even. The Hornets have won five of their last ten matches in the English top flight but lost four of the other five.
If their form could be described as patchy then the same could be said for their opponents on Tuesday night. Southampton have lost five of the last ten, winning four and drawing the other.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men aren’t safe from relegation just yet and though performances have improved, points on the board are now a necessity. The Saints followed up a 3-1 win over Wolves with a 3-1 loss to Newcastle United. A response is needed. Victory would lift them eight points above the drop zone with just three matches to play.
Spurs vs Brighton
At one stage, it appeared as though Spurs would make it a three-horse race for the Premier League title. However, their form has dramatically dropped off over recent weeks with Mauricio Pochettino’s men losing five of their last ten matches.
Strugglers Burnley and Southampton have taken maximum points off of the Champions League semi-finalists during this run and defeat to Manchester City on Saturday now means Spurs are in a real battle to even finish in the top four, despite currently sitting in third position.
Still yet to concede a goal in their new stadium, the home side will fancy their chances against a Brighton side without a win in five matches.
Chris Hughton’s charges are just three points above the drop zone but do have a game in hand over Cardiff City, the team currently occupying the final relegation place.
Opening up a six point lead with just three games to go would all bust assure Premier League survival, but Brighton have won just three matches away from home all season.
