Premier League Previews: Friday

Comments

Three more Premier League games overnight, including Chelsea v Manchester City, a game sure to be closely watched by Liverpool fans around the world.

Unless City win, the Reds will clinch the Premier League title. The Sky Blues will be without the services of the injured Sergio Aguero, but with such a deep squad, Pep Guardiola can slot in Gabriel Jesus, who has 10 league goals this season.

Elsewhere there will be far fewer eyes on Burnley hosting Watford, while Southampton entertains Arsenal following the news that the Gunners have given erratic defender David Luiz a contract extention.
