The Premier League hits the final stretch- only nine game weeks left to go. And if Manchester City seemed like the odds-on favourite to claim the title some weeks ago, Liverpool has somehow clawed its way back.
Just one point separates the leaders and their rivals. This makes for an intriguing fixture when both teams meet on the other side of the international break.
There is limited action this weekend owing to the FA Cup which enters its last eight. Indeed, the Cityzens and the Reds take on Southampton and Nottingham Forest respectively on Sunday. Chelsea faces Middlesbrough as Crystal and Everton meet in the other two quarterfinal encounters.
Gameweek 30’s matches promise just as much drama with direct implications on the relegation zone.

Preview Of Gameweek 30

Wolves will entertain Leeds in tonight’s action. The visitors returned to winning ways last weekend. New manager, Jesse Marsch will be desperate for another win as they fight to avoid relegation.
