It really is crunch time in the Premier League as we move into the last five games of the season. Premier League matches are shown by pay-TV broadcasters Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and with match highlights available free on BBC Sport with Match of the Day. Need a Premier League VPN?
Manchester City have the title wrapped up, for all intents and purposes, and Manchester United have a solid grip on second place but third and fourth are still up for grabs, and only one team is definitely relegated at the other end so there is still a lot to play for. Fun Fact: Premier League VPN is one of the most searched phrases on Google.
There are ten Premier League matches this weekend and we thought we’d take a look at three of the most interesting to get you in the mood.
⚽ Brighton vs Leeds
📅 Saturday 1 May 2021
⏰ 1500 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Amazon Prime Live Streaming
Brighton come into this game needing points to avoid any possibility of suffering relegation at the end of the season, while Leeds are looking to maintain their place in the top half of the Premier League table.
Brighton being at risk of relegation is entirely their own fault. They should, in truth, be comfortably in mid-table based on their underlying statistics. Both defensively and in terms of the calibre of chances they have created across the season, Brighton are a good mid-table table. Their failure to bring in a recognised goalscorer across the last two windows, though understandable given the pandemic, has cost them massively as they have had to rely on players who aren’t consistent enough in front of goal. Defensively, Graeme Potter has created a solid unit that overcomes the defensive frailties of a couple of its members that also gives them a basis to play from. Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster and in particular Ben White are all strong in terms of ball progression and that has enabled Brighton to overcome some shortcomings in their midfield.
White returns from suspension but Florin Andone, Percy Tau, Tariq Lamptey and Solly March remain sidelined with injury.
Leeds are on their longest unbeaten run of the season and held Liverpool and Manchester United to draws in their last two games. This game will represent a different type of test of Bielsa’s men but one that won’t phase them. They did lose to Brighton in the first meeting between the sides this season but Leeds have grown in confidence as the season has progressed and are now more adapted to the Premier League and what it demands. They remain heavily reliant on Patrick Bamford to get their goals but have seen an uptick in goals from other parts of the team in recent weeks. The return from injury of Diego Llorente and continued development of Pascal Struijk have given them a more solid defensive base in recent weeks, and with Kalvin Phillips back to his best Leeds have strength through their spine.
Raphinha and Helder Costa are doubts for this game, but Rodrigo could be back in the mix. Adam Forshaw remains sidelined after a setback in his recovery while Liam Cooper is still suspended.
⚽ Chelsea vs Fulham
📅 Saturday 1 May 2021
⏰ 1730 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
Two teams who are located only two miles apart physical, but are many miles apart in terms of their Premier League status meet on Saturday evening in the West London derby.
Chelsea are closing in on a top four finish, have an FA Cup final to look forward to and are in control of their Champions League semi-final tie after an impressive performance in Madrid. Thomas Tuchel deserves immense credit for the job he has done since arriving at Stamford Bridge in January to replace Frank Lampard. Chelsea have gone from a team who often looked like they’d just been told to “go out and run around a bit” in the hopes that their talent would be enough to win them games, to a team with real structure and purpose. Every player has a clearly defined role within the system and each has specific defensive responsibilities but in attack they are given freedom to express themselves, within the structure. This has seen Christian Pulisic in particular look more like the player he has threatened to be for the past couple of seasons.
Mateo Kovacic will have a late fitness test but Chelsea have no other injury concerns at this time.
Unlike their neighbours, Fulham are not chasing a European dream. Nor do they have an FA Cup final to look forward to. Instead, they have an almighty battle on their hands just to stay in the division. With a group of players as talented as they have, the blame can be squarely placed on the shoulders on Scott “Scottie Two Coats” Parker who has done a genuinely poor job with this team this season. As well as Scottie Two Coats did to get Fulham promoted last season, he has looked constantly out of his depth this season and his team selections have been baffling at times. He has continually benched his best player, Zambo Anguissa, in recent weeks for reasons known only to himself. His failure to get the best from Aleksandar Mitrovic this season has cost Fulham hugely as a lack of goals has been their major issue. Joachim Anderson has been one of the better defenders in the league this season and his leadership has been a standout factor in Fulham’s respectable defensive record.
Fulham hope to have Kenny Tete back after a bout with Covid-19 but will be without Tom Cairney, Terence Kongolo and Marek Rodak.
⚽ Manchester United vs Liverpool
📅 Sunday 2 May 2021
⏰ 1630 UK Kick-Off
🖥️ Sky Sports Live Streaming
The biggest game on the English football calendar takes place this season as second placed Manchester United welcome sixth placed Liverpool, desperately in need of a win to maintain any chance of a top four finish, to Old Trafford on Sunday.
United have had a strange Premier League campaign, rarely playing to their potential but continually picking up wins to maintain a place in the Champions League spots. They have now opened up a five point gap on third placed Leicester and a 12 point gap on fifth placed West Ham and know that a draw in this game should be enough to make them certain qualifiers for Europe’s top competition. They do still have a potential second route into the competition, being favourites to win the Europa League among the four teams remaining, but won’t want to take any risks. Mason Greenwood rediscovering his goalscoring touch has come at a good time for the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that Greenwood, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes will continue to drag this team to victories, even when the team doesn’t perform.
Phil Jones is likely to miss the remainder of what has been a hugely frustrating season for the English defender, while Solskjaer has said he will be “surprised” if Anthony Martial plays again this season.
Liverpool are unbeaten in five Premier League games but have snatched draws from the jaws of victory in their last two games. Against Leeds, it was fair to say that Leeds deserved their late equalizer having outplayed the Champions in the second half but Liverpool should have had the game put to bed by half time. There was no excuse against Newcastle. Jurgen Klopp’s side dominated the game and should have scored five in the first half, such was the volume of quality chances they created. Klopp’s management of the second half bordered on shambolic but his side still had a couple of good chances to double the early lead Mo Salah had given them. Instead, his negative approach and the team’s failure to adapt after surviving two scares, including a goal that was disallowed, gave the Toon a route back into the game which they gladly took. Four points off Chelsea in 4th, eight off Leicester in 3rd, Liverpool can not afford any more slips ups. They have to win this game.
Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are all ruled out for the season, and Jordan Henderson may well be as well given the lack of clear information coming out of Liverpool about a player they initially said would return after the last international break. Divock Origi and Caoimhin Kelleher are ruled out with mysterious muscle injuries but Nat Phillips could return after a hamstring issue.
These are just some of the games available to you this weekend. With so many games to choose from, the worry is wasting time on the wrong game. We’ll try and guide you in the right direction so that all you need to do is sit back, turn on your Liberty Shield VPN, settle in, and enjoy the games.
