A stop-start phase of the Premier League season has its last action of March this weekend before an international break, which Chelsea will hope to go into with the title all but secured.



This weekend's Premier League action


Cup football and the hiatus for World Cup qualifiers slows the Premier League momentum as winter turns into spring before the final push through April and May, but that will not concern Chelsea who go into their match away to Stoke City with a 10-point lead at the top of the table.

The gap could be 13 on Saturday night before the Blues’ three closest pursuers play the following day.

Tottenham Hotspur are at home to Southampton on Sunday in a match that screams ‘goals’ on all recent form, and that precedes the biggest game of the weekend as Manchester City host Liverpool in a clash of two teams who hope to be playing Champions League football next term.

The latter comment also applies to Arsenal, who get things under way on Saturday lunchtime when they visit West Bromwich Albion aiming to close a five-point gap to the top four, although the fifth-placed Gunners do have two games in hand on Liverpool immediately above them.

Also hoping to catch the Merseysiders are their fierce North West rivals Manchester United, who have a very quick turnaround from Thursday’s Europa League match against Rostov as they face a 12:00 GMT Sunday kick-off for their trip to Middlesbrough.

At the other end of the table Sunderland’s relegation plight becomes increasingly desperate as the teams above them pick up points, but the Wearsiders will be hopeful of boosting their prospects when they host a Burnley team without a win on the road all season.

Hull City will have renewed belief after last week’s win against Swansea but have plenty on their plate when they travel to face Everton, who have won all of their five home league matches in 2017 with at least one goal to spare.

Crystal Palace aim to continue their recent improvement at home to Watford, while Swansea visit Bournemouth in a clash of two teams still not safe from the drop and Champions League quarter-finalists Leicester put manager Craig Shakespeare’s 100% record on the line away to West Ham.
