Premier League: Arsenal and Chelsea challenge for the Champions League spot!

Fulham will host Arsenal in the second London derby in a week on Saturday, April 20th at 3pm. Chelsea will travel to Liverpool on Sunday.

Fulham vs Arsenal on Saturday, April 20th at 3pm

10th placed Fulham face the challenge of 4th placed Arsenal this Saturday. Fulham go into the game having not won a game in their last 3. A 3-0 loss against Chelsea on Wednesday night means that the cottagers have only picked up one point from a possible 9. Regardless of their recent form, Fulham are seemingly safe in the table as they currently sit 9 points clear of the relegation zone with only 6 games left to play.

Arsenal will have to be wary of Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov who has already scored 13 goals in his first season for Fulham since joining from Manchester United. Arsenal go into the game having lost only 1 of their last 6 matches gaining 13 points along the way. The Gunners look on course to finish in one of the 4 Champions League places, but are in a close fought battle with Chelsea and Tottenham. Arsenal will need top scorers Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott to continue their good form going into the end of season running. Cazorla has scored 12 goals while Walcott has scored 11.

Liverpool vs Liverpool on Sunday, April 21 at 4pm

With just six games remaining in the Premier League season, Rafael Benitez’s side remain on course to qualify for next season’s Champions League, and a win over the Reds would push us a step further to returning to Europe’s premier club competition. However, the Blues record against the boys from Anfield, who last won the top flight of English football in 1990, hasn’t been too impressive in recent years – although Chelsea did lift the FA Cup for the seventh time in the club’s history with a win over Liverpool at Wembley last May.

When Chelsea visited the home of the Reds in May 2010, with the Premier League title still in the balance, the Blues produced a superb display to win 2-0, setting up the following week’s incredible victory over Wigan Athletic to see them crowned Premier League champions. It will also be a special game for Rafa Benitez who will return to Anfield for the first time since his departure.
