Premier League action returns on Wednesday and the top three will be away from home and will need to garner maximum points to continue their domination of the ongoing season.
League leaders Chelsea will be away to Watford at Vicarage Road in a must-win game if they are to maintain their current position in the log after faltering against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday whilst the chasing pack closed down on them.
Chelsea currently lead Manchester City and Liverpool with just 1 point and 2 points presently. Therefore, any slip from Thomas Tuchel’s side will result in an overhaul of positions in the top 3.
The visit to Watford might see the return of Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku who has been absent for a while due to injury.
We might be looking at the prospect of a change in positions tonight but the likes of Man City and Liverpool must win away from home to pile the pressure on Chelsea.
Pep Guardiola’s men face a tricky tie against a seemingly rejuvenated Aston Villa side at Villa Park.
The Villans have come to life under former Liverpool star Steven Gerrard and have won their last two games in a row.
Therefore, they’ll be brimming with confidence ahead of City’s visit although the latter remain overwhelming favorites and have proven to be focused in their quest to lead the log.
Meanwhile, the clash of the day is arguably the Merseyside derby as Liverpool face Everton at Goodison Park.
Everton are currently managed by one-time former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez.
Therefore, expect some boos in this one. The Toffees have been struggling thus far and have no win in their last 5 games with 4 losses and 1 draw to their name,
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are favorites for all three points but it would be unwise to write off their local rivals tonight irrespective of form as local derbies hardly respect form guides.
Regardless, we expect cracking games of football from all three venues tonight and look forward to seeing if Chelsea can return to winning ways and maintain their place at the top or if they would be toppled by the Citizens and the Reds.
Or maybe, the chasing pack could also falter after gaining ground on the last Premier League Matchday.
