The Premier League rolls on this week for another selection of entertaining fixtures as the busy month of April continues. While we’re entering into the latter stages of the season, there are still so many huge fixtures left to be played at the top and bottom of the table.
Today, our aim is to pick out four clubs, in particular, who we believe have a huge opportunity ahead of them in the next few days. They aren’t nailed on to pick up all three points and they may not even be the favourites, but if they can find a way to win, it could be huge for their season.
If you feel like putting some money down on any of the games we’re about to discuss, head on over to the betting page.
Liverpool fans need to be able to heal and move on from what’s happened in the last few days, and one way in which they can do that is by winning football matches. This weekend they’ll play host to Newcastle United and while they may be in decent form right now, the Magpies shouldn’t come anywhere close to causing the Reds problems in a normal world. Alas, if they do succeed and gain all three points, they’ll set down an important marker for the rest of the top four chasers.
Brighton & Hove Albion aren’t quite out of the woods yet when it comes to the relegation scrap and as we look ahead to their immediate future, we think this weekend could give them a huge platform to build on. They’ll be travelling north to lock horns with Sheffield United who, as we all know, have already been relegated from the Premier League. If they win, which they should, that could just about be enough to see them over the finish line.
Some Leeds United fans may not believe finishing in the top seven is a realistic aim but we tend to disagree with that assessment. Instead, we’re of the belief that if they can stick to the game plan that saw them take four points off of Manchester City and Liverpool, they’ll be just fine. Next up comes a classic game within the context of English football as Leeds go against Manchester United, knowing they’ve got every chance of causing the upset – even though it wouldn’t even be much of an upset in the eyes of many.
Leicester City got back on the winning trail against West Bromwich Albion but if they’re serious about securing Champions League football, they have to keep this movement going. They next play on Monday Night Football against Crystal Palace and, all things considered, they should easily be viewed as the overwhelming favourites to win that game. They’re in a great position and need to ensure they don’t crack under the pressure, especially with the excitement of an FA Cup final being right around the corner.
Brendan Rodgers is ready for the challenge, but they have to take things one game at a time.
