Premier League Sunday Preview

The final four Premier League games of 2019 take place on Sunday.

Champions Manchester City will look to end a run of two successive losses and bounce back to form at Southampton and keep up the pressure on Liverpool and Tottenham at the top.

Should City slip up again, then Chelsea could close to within a point if they win at Crystal Palace.

The final game of the calendar year takes place at Old Trafford as interim Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks for his third successive win as Bournemouth visit Old Trafford.

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.
