The Premier League title race blew wide open last week as Manchester City ended Liverpool's unbeaten run in the league. Matchday 22 has some exciting games and none better than United's trip to Wembley.

Arsenal travel to the London Stadium on Saturday to face the 10th placed West Ham United. The Gunners could move level on points with Chelsea temporarily at least if they pick up maximum points against the Hammers. Unai Emery will be boosted by the easing injury list. The likes of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny, and Hector Bellerin could be available for selection.

Burnley welcome Fulham at Turf Moor in a massive clash at the bottom of the Premier League table. The Clarets won successive league games to ease the pressure on Manager Sean Dyche and move out of the bottom three.

Crystal Palace picked up a priceless three points at Molineux last weekend to steer clear of the relegation spots. They host Watford at Selhurst Park. The Eagles have not won at home since mid-December.

Cardiff plays Huddersfield in a crucial Premier League fixture in the battle to avoid the drop. Liverpool will hope to bounce back from the shock exit in the FA Cup on Monday when they travel to the Amex Stadium to play Brighton.

Leicester entertains Southampton at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes are currently occupying 7th spot in the league table, while Southampton lies in the 18th place, two points from safety. Chelsea will play Newcastle in a late kick-off on Saturday.

On Sunday Bournemouth travel to Merseyside to face Everton. Marco Silva has come under scrutiny after failing to improve the Blues’ league position in recent weeks. The league meeting with the Cherries will be a significant game for the Portuguese.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have his first real test as Manchester United’s Interim manager when he takes his United side to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur. The final match of round 22 will conclude at the Etihad Stadium when Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City play Wolverhampton Wanderers.
