EPL 2020-21, Matchday 32 preview: Liverpool faces unpredictable Leeds, United aims to narrow gap with City
The 2020-21 English Premier League is more or less into its business end phase. Manchester City is still the favourite to win the title. Meanwhile, defending champion Liverpool is still in the hunt for a top-four spot following some howlers in the past few games.
English football is picking up the pace as the Premier League 2020-21 is almost into its business end phase. The race for the title is still marginally on between Manchester City and Manchester United while defending champion Liverpool is fighting for a top-four spot. As things progress into Matchday 32, we present the preview involving the top sides.
Arsenal should have it easy against Fulham
Arsenal has been in a troubled form this season as it struggles for a European spot in the league table. Currently placed ninth, it takes on relegation-threatened Fulham at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. It should undoubtedly be an easy task for the Gunners, as a win would keep it at the same spot. However, a loss could see it drop to 11th.
Manchester United tackles Burnley at home
United has managed to produce a decent performance throughout the season, thus confirming a top-four spot. However, since it is still in the title race, it would not take anything for granted and continue to deliver with the same momentum when it takes on 17th-placed Burnley at Old Trafford on Sunday. It should be an easy ride for the Red Devils, which would narrow the margin to City by eight points at second. However, a loss would not harm United, as it would still stay at the same spot.
Liverpool takes on unpredictable Leeds United
The defending champion is showing signs of recovery following its howlers a few games back. While it is still in the race for top-four, it has no choice but to win against tenth-placed Leeds on Monday. Meanwhile, the Peacocks is known to be highly unpredictable and can cause significant upsets against top sides. Therefore, The Reds need to be extra careful while playing away from home, as a win could take it to fourth, while a loss could drop it to seventh.
Chelsea looks to annihilate Brighton and Hove Albion
Chelsea has been in an escalating form and is placed fifth, as it would leave no stones unturned for a top-four finish. On the same note, it would take on 16th-placed Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. Least to say, this should be easy for The Blues, as a win would help it rise to third, while a loss could push it down to sixth.
Everton shares the honour with Tottenham Hotspur
In the big game of the matchday, Everton took on Tottenham at Goodison Park on Friday evening. It was an intense clash, as both rightfully settled for a 2-2 draw to share the honours. While the Toffees stays at eighth, Spurs is placed a spot above, on seventh, with both eyeing a European spot.
