We’ve handpicked all the Premier League action you need to look out for this weekend. Here is our matchday 27 preview. 

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool | Saturday | 17:00 

The action kicks off on Saturday afternoon at 5 pm when Liverpool pays Nottingham Forest a visit. The Reds will be hoping to make the most of the opportunity to stretch their lead at the top to 4 points over Manchester City and 5 over Arsenal, as their fellow title contenders will only play on Sunday. Although they have struggled with an ever-growing injury list of late, Liverpool is on the back of an impressive Carabao Cup final win against Chelsea and a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup with an incredibly young and inexperienced side. On top of this, they will be boosted by the possible returns of Dominik Szoboszlai, Darwin Nunez, and Mo Salah.

With these factors in mind, my prediction for this match is a straight win for Liverpool. Klopp’s side simply has too much at stake and too much firepower for this Nottingham Forest side that has struggled for points and finds themselves fighting to avoid relegation.

Brentford vs Chelsea | Saturday | 17:00

Brentford also hosts Chelsea on Saturday in an interesting West London Derby. The hosts come into this match in poor form, having won just one of their last 5 league games, but Chelsea hasn’t been doing much better themselves, with 2 wins in their last 5 league matches. With Chelsea’s defense looking so shaky of late and giving away more chances than their opponents create, it could be a long afternoon for them against the dangerous front trio of Mbeumo, Toney, and Wissa.

Overall, I predict an open match that will have a minimum of 2.5 goals. With 2 incredibly inconsistent sides, it is hard to tell which way exactly this match will go.

Manchester City vs Manchester United | Sunday | 17:00

Sunday afternoon boasts the Premier League match of the weekend, the Manchester derby, which will kick off at 5:30 pm at the Etihad Stadium. United will be devastated by the news of Hojlund, Maguire, and Varane all missing this match, as the young Danish striker has been firing consistently for the Red Devils since the turn of the year, and United has lost the only game they played without him since his scoring streak. On top of that, Erling Haaland on the other side seems to have regained his unbelievable scoring form with Kevin De Bruyne pulling the strings in midfield.

Things do not look promising at all for United; hence, my prediction is a straight win for Man City.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal | Monday 4 March | 17:00

The weekend’s action ends on Monday night when Arsenal visits the bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United. The hosts have had a horrific season thus far, having conceded the most goals by some way and scored the fewest goals in the league all season. The biggest worry for them will not just be their poor run of form but also the sharpness of Arsenal’s attack of late, which seems to be scoring goals for fun in their pursuit of the Premier League title. Arsenal has goals coming from everywhere in their team lately and should win comfortably against Sheffield on Sunday night.

A straight win for The Gunners is my prediction for this match.
