Match Week 12 Preview

Match Week 12 of the Premier League season will play out Tuesday through Thursday of this week. An originally scheduled blockbuster match between Arsenal versus Manchester City is postponed but the third and fourth place clubs are in action as Chelsea engages in a London derby at Brentford and Tottenham Hotspur travels to Old Trafford to face fifth place Manchester United. Newcastle can move past Manchester United in the table if the Magpies enjoy a better result in their home match versus Everton than the Red Devils experience against Spurs.

Liverpool remains home after their big win at Anfield over City on the weekend. Wednesday the Reds will host West Ham.

Former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard could find himself in dire job jeopardy if his Aston Villa side can’t produce a result at Fulham.

Gerrard’s former Liverpool Manger, Brendan Rodgers, has his own issues as Leicester will try to win for only a second time this season when the relegation bound Foxes host Leeds. Leeds is vulnerable after losing three of their past four matches.

Bournemouth face Southampton at the Cherries’ Vitality Stadium in a south coast matchup which supporters of both clubs refuse to acknowledge as a derby. Tenth place Bournemouth are five points better than relegation bound Southampton.

Brighton is also in action on the south coast as the Seagulls host Nottingham Forest. Brighton Manger Roberto de Zerbi should have his best chance yet to secure his first Premier League victory as his club faces a Nottingham Forest side which has lost seven times in ten league tries this season with only Leicester having tasted failure so often.

Crystal Palace has struggled to convert chances this season, but host even more offensively challenged Wolverhampton on Tuesday at Selhurst Park.
