Premier league actions for game week 27 will resume this weekend and the likes of Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United will all return to action. Though there aren't any mouth watering clashes to anticipate, it could still promise to be another exciting game week. Though all of the aforementioned teams face considerably weaker opponents, some could drop points and we will look at 2 teams who could possibly lose their balance in their respective top 4 and title ambitions.
1. Leicester City vs Chelsea (King Power Stadium)
Chelsea will look to build on their wins over Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester city by 16:00 BST.
Though it seems like Chelsea are slowly regaining their form, home wins over Leeds and Dortmund are not enough to affirm that Chelsea are back on track. Their away record have been abysmal as they have failed to win each of their last 9 away games in the league, with their last win coming against Aston Villa back in October. Leicester are a very aggressive side especially when at home turf and a performance similar to the ones against Leeds and Dortmund might not be able to see them through against Leicester City.
2. Fulham vs Arsenal (Craven Cottage)
Arsenal will look to get themselves one step closer to the EPL title when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon by 15:00 BST.
Arsenal have built a reputation of stealing victories late in the game this season as they've done that against Aston Villa, Man United, Bournemouth and even their weekend's opponent, Fulham in the first leg at the Emirates. Though that is a sign of true title intent, they cannot continue to win that way and a decent side like Fulham who occupy 7th in the table are capable of frustrating the Gunners.
Fulham are particularly a dangerous side when they play at Craven Cottage and they've only lost 3 times at home this season against Man United, Tottenham and Newcastle, all of which are very good sides. Arsenal played out a 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in the Europa league and tired legs could also play role to Arsenal dropping points to Fulham this weekend.
