Premier League Saturday Preview

Manchester City can close the gap on leaders Liverpool on Saturday.

The champions begin the day in the early kick-off as they host Aston Villa, and victory would put them to within three points of Liverpool – who are not playing until Sunday.

In-form Chelsea are coming off the back of a brilliantly win at Ajax in midweek and they looking for a fourth successive league win, as they travel to Burnley in the day’s late kick-off.

Bottom-of-the-table Watford remain winless and they will be hoping to break that duck as they welcome Bournemouth to Vicarage Road.

West Ham are looking to end a run of two successive wins, which has seen them drop into the bottom-half of the table as they take on Sheffield United at the London Stadium.

The other game sees Brighton host Everton on the South Coast.

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.
