There are four matches in the Premier League on Sunday and after the battle to avoid the drop was in the spotlight on Saturday, it is the turn of the top end of the table to come under the microscope over the course of the day.
Once again, we now know that all four of these matches will be shown live through the broadcasters that cover the Premier League so even on a warmer day than we have had recently there is no reason not to sit back and enjoy it all.
Sunday’s fixtures are as follows: (UK kick off and TV in brackets)
West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur (12.00 – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)
Aston Villa vs Leicester City (14.15 – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)
Arsenal vs Manchester City (16.30 – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)
Manchester United vs Newcastle United (19.00 – BT Sport 1)

We begin in the capital where two clubs who don’t like each other battle it out in another London derby as fifth placed West Ham United look to move back into the top four when they entertain a Tottenham Hotspur side who have dropped all the way down to ninth place after a poor run of form. When they are finished the title race comes to the fore beginning with the team who begin the day in third place in Leicester City when they make the short trip to face one of the teams of the season in Aston Villa.
The leaders Manchester City then look to extend their lead at the top of the table when they get involved in the pick of the matches on the day as they face an Arsenal side who have picked up a bit of form themselves recently. The action concludes on Sunday night with Manchester United looking to remain in the hunt for the title when they face Newcastle United at Old Trafford with the visitors now heavily involved in a relegation battle after Fulham’s win on Saturday evening.
I like the one bet over the course of Sunday and it comes in that big clash at the Emirates Stadium where I think Manchester City can stick a spanner in the works of the recent form of Arsenal. If you take out the FA Cup semi-final, the Gunners do not have a good recent record against Man City and already this season they have lost twice of the Citizens, neither of which came when Pep Guardiola’s men were in the sort of form they are in now.
There aren’t many sides in the Premier League, if any, who can stop this Man City juggernaut and Arsenal have shown they struggle to do it. They were thrashed 4-1 in the League Cup and in fact City’s last five trips to the Emirates have been 3-0, 3-0, 2-0, 3-0 and 4-1 so on none of those occasions have Arsenal landed a blow on City. City aren’t conceding goals and they are scoring plenty and have key players coming back in attacking areas. I don’t see past a City win here.
