Week 20: Three key Fixtures
Tottenham vs Liverpool
A late goal from Bobby Firmino earned all three points for the Reds the last time the two sides met at Anfield which was a top-of-the-Premier League table-clash at that point.
Spurs can leapfrog Liverpool in the EPL table this week, with the Reds horribly struggling for form. Liverpool are without a win in their last five Premier League games, while Spurs are undefeated in their last eight games in all competitions.
Everton vs Leicester City
Rio Ferdinand claimed recently that the Toffees should be considered as one of the title contenders after their impressive form under Carlo Ancelotti this season.
Everton have won back-to-back games ahead of this fixture, but they have also lost 1-0 against West Ham at Goodison Park recently. The Foxes are flying high under Brendan Rodgers, winning five games in a row.
Newcastle United vs Leeds United
The Magpies are yet to win a game in any competition since 12th December, and another frustrating result on Tuesday could see the end of Steve Bruce’s tenure at the Tyneside club.
Leeds have lost three games in a row in all competitions, and Marcelo Bielsa’s side will look to return to winning ways, with Kalvin Phillips set to return.
