EPL Fixtures on 13 April

*All times SAST

Tottenham vs Huddersfield – 13:30

Tottenham have the perfect chance to build on their improving form at their new stadium when they face dead-and-buried Huddersfield in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.

Spurs stopped their rotten Premier League form in their first outing at their glitzy arena with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace a week last Wednesday.

Victory over Manchester City followed in the Champions League quarter-final first leg as the north Londoners settled in nicely to their new surroundings.

They will return to third above capital city rivals Chelsea with a win.

It’s a result well on the cards thanks in no small part to Huddersfield’s rotten form as they bid farewell to the top flight.

The Terriers have just 14 points to show for their efforts this season and were thumped 4-1 at home by Leicester last weekend.

Manchester United vs West Ham – 18:30

Manchester United need to return to form at home to West Ham in the late Saturday game if they are to maintain their top four tilt.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suffered two defeats in three Premier League matches since being given the permanent job in the Old Trafford hotseat.

Wolves stunned the Red Devils 2-1 in their last league assignment, a week last Tuesday.

It means United start the weekend back where they started in sixth, albeit still well within reach of third as the run-in continues.

West Ham have suffered back-to-back 2-0 defeats as their campaign has hit the buffers.

The Hammers were booed off by their own fans in losing at home to Everton before London rivals Chelsea compounded the dissatisfaction by repeating the scoreline at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

Southampton vs Wolves – 16:00

Wolves have the chance to return to seventh in the Premier League table when they go to struggling Southampton on Saturday.

The Black Country side stunned Manchester United with a 2-1 win at Molineux last time out.

Southampton’s relegation-busting run went pop last weekend as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Liverpool, leaving the Saints hovering nervously above the drop zone.

Burnley vs Cardiff – 16:00

Cardiff continue their battle to avoid an immediate return to the Championship away to improving Burnley on Saturday.

The Clarets have won their last two, against Bournemouth and Wolves, to pull away from the choppy relegation waters.

Cardiff, by contrast, remain right in the clarts after being diddled at home by Chelsea and overwhelmed at Manchester City.

Brighton vs Bournemouth – 16:00

Brighton and Bournemouth contest a south coast tussle with the hosts still with work to do to ensure their Premier League survival.

Chris Hughton’s men come into the game five points clear of the drop zone with a couple of matches in hand, but have lost their last two.

The Cherries are bumbling along in mid-table but haven’t won in three.

Fulham vs Everton – 16:00

In-form Everton go to relegated Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Toffees have won their last three in the EPL with a 1-0 home success over Arsenal last weekend back up victories against West Ham and Chelsea.

Fulham are heading straight back to the second tier and were walloped 4-1 by Watford in their last game.

EPL Fixtures on 14 April

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City – 15:05

Manchester City will return to the top of the Premier League if they can win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The reigning champions will go back above Liverpool in their topsy-turvy tussle if they can seal three points, with the Reds in action later in the day.

Pep Guardiola’s men are in sizzling EPL form and waltzed past Cardiff in their last league match.

An FA Cup semi-final win followed last weekend, although a 14-match winning run in all competitions was brought to a halt in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Tottenham on Tuesday night.

Crystal Palace look set for survival in the top flight, with their nightmare start to the season a distant memory.

The Eagles even solidified their mid-table credentials by snatching a 1-0 win at Newcastle last Saturday.

Liverpool vs Chelsea – 17:30

Title-chasing Liverpool take on Chelsea in the game of the weekend in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds start the weekend at the top of the EPL table having won four on the bounce.

Southampton were the last to be slain, as Jurgen Klopp’s side picked them off for a 3-1 victory at St Mary’s.

The Merseysiders look set to push reigning champions Manchester City all the way as push comes to shove.

Chelsea, somewhat improbably, come into this weekend third in the table.

Boss Maurizio Sarri has defied the pressure on his shoulders to steer his men to three successive victories in the league.

London rivals West Ham were the latest victims, seen off 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The top four is once again a realistic target, with lowly duo Brighton at Cardiff also seen off in recent weeks.
