England: Premier League Weekend Previews & Predictions

It is crunch time in the Premier League this weekend as title contenders Manchester United and Chelsea meet at Old Trafford. A few weeks ago this tie was expected to be a mere dead rubber, an intriguing contest but with little bearing on who will lift the trophy at the end of the season.
Now, however, Chelsea can go top of the table with a win as they are currently just three points behind United with the same goal difference. A title showdown is sure to whet the appetite and you can watch it all on Sunday live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1 from 4pm. At the other end it really is a desperate situation for West Ham who, with three games to go, need a victory over Blackburn to claw themselves closer to safety. Fellow relegation candidates Blackpool and Wigan both have tricky away fixtures, while Wolves host West Brom in a Black Country derby. Elsewhere, Arsenal go to Stoke where there should be a conflict in styles while Manchester City face a trip to Everton and Newcastle host Birmingham.
