Premier League Saturday Preview

Tottenham Hotspur have the chance to move to within two points of the top of the table on Saturday.

Spurs travel to in-form Burnley on Saturday with the chance to put pressure on leaders Manchester City – who are not in action this weekend due to them playing in the League Cup final – and Liverpool, who face Manchester United on Sunday.

Bournemouth host Wolves knowing victory would move them into the top-half of the table, whilst seventh placed Wolves are looking to maintain the pressure on the top-six.

Bottom of the table Huddersfield are still looking for their first win under new boss Jan Siewert as they travel to Newcastle United.

Twelfth placed Leicester, without a win since New Year’s Day, host Crystal Palace who are just one place worse off in thirteenth but they start the day five points adrift of the Foxes.

See below for a preview on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
