Manchester City still sits in second place on the table with 58 points, six points behind league leader Chelsea. The Citizens of Manuel Pellegrini come home to Ethiad Stadium having lost two of their last three Premier League matches, most recently losing to Burnley 1-0, in desperate need of striker Sergio Agüero to find his scoring ways which have been invisible in those three recent encounters. The Baggies arrive having lost only once in their last six, most recently defeating Stoke City 1-0. West Bromwich Albion now sits with 33 points on the table and continuing to take large strides towards Premier League safety.
Newcastle United comes home to St. James Park losers of three of their last four Premier League matches, most recently a 3-0 drubbing at the hands of Everton. During the same stretch The Magpies have been outscored 9-1 and have dropped to 11thplace on the table with 35 points. Arséne Wenger’s Arsenal squad has ascended to third place on the table with 51 points and now trail defending champion Manchester City by one point for second place. The Gunners, winners of five consecutive matches, are mounting a formidable challenge led by Oliver Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey.
Liverpool comes home to Anfield in fifth place and trailing Manchester United by two points for fourth place. The Reds and The Red Devils square off in a head to head matchup that can re-shape current Champions League qualifying position. Brendan Rodgers squad, which has won five consecutive matches, continues to be led by the steady offense of Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard. Louis Van Gaal’s squad comes in winners of three in a row, shutting out each opponent in the same stretch. Captain Wayne Rooney continues to lead the charge for Manchester United and now finds himself among the league’s top goal scorers.
Hull City has not tasted victory in its last three Premier League encounters. The Tigers of Steve Bruce, who most recently had a scoreless encounter vs. Leicester, need to turn misfortunes around quickly or may find themselves falling further on the table and dangerously close to relegation. League leader Chelsea goes into The KC Stadium not having been defeated in their last eight Premier League encounters and firmly in first place, six points in front of second place Manchester City. The Blues of Jose Mourinho continue to ride on the legs of Diego Costa, who took over the league goal scoring lead last week with his 18thgoal on the season.
Soccer analyst Sammy Sadovnik and former Mexican National Team player Manuel Sol will call Manchester City vs. West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle United vs. Arsenal and Hull City vs. Chelsea. Legendary commentator Andres Cantor will join Sol to narrate the action of Liverpool vs. Manchester United.
