This is business end and every team will be trying to gain maximum points in the next few Premier League gameweeks starting this weekend.
Now for some record:
In the Premier League 2012/13 season, Sunderland reacted to their relegation problems by sacking Martin O’Neill and appointing Paolo Di Canio.
In the Premier League 2013/14 season, Sunderland reacted to their relegation problems by sacking Paolo Di Canio and appointing Gus Poyet.
In the Premier League 2014/15 season, Sunderland reacted to their relegation problems by sacking Gus Poyet and appointing Dick Advocaat.
In the Premier League 2015/16 season, Sunderland reacted to their relegation problems by sacking Dick Advocaat and appointing Sam Allardyce.
Only the common thing every season has been that they just survived the battle and stayed in the league. This time it is quite surprising to see that the same side is not even close to sacking David Moyes as they seem to go down quite emphatically. Only a miracle can save them. Even then just.
Starting this week, they will be facing Bournemouth Bournemouth, Hull City, and Swansea over the next three weeks, and will be up for a grand finale away from home against the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal. David Moyes and his crew have to give in everything to save them from going on against Bournemouth. Else, Realistically if they drop points this week, they will be out.
The North London Derby is back for this weekend and we can expect an equally dramatic game of football as Pochettino will try to hurt Wenger’s run even more as they happen to be still in the title run if only Chelsea slip. But, Wenger’s record against the top teams have been really less than impressive and they will wish to turn things around with a win to give them a boost for a top-4 finish and throw Spurs out of the title race once and for all.
Tottenham and Arsenal have played a combined 43 games in all competitions since the turn of the year; only five have ended in a draw. A point serves the ambitions of neither side as both will surely be going for a win.
Liverpool will be up against a formidable Watford side who have shown some form in recent weeks. Watford, on the contrary, will hope to finish in the top half on the table after a long time and will try to ensure that they stay within the top-10 this term around. The biggest problems Liverpool have faced this season are at the back and it will be of no surprise that Watford will try to hurt the Kop where they can be wounded. Watford recently lost against 10-men Hull City and will be down with morale. In other news, failure to win this game, and Europa League might be beckoning them.
Do you think Chelsea will drop points this Premier League weekend?
