While Leicester City have shocked the world and won over hearts everywhere, there is still plenty to play for in the Premier League. At the top of the table, Manchester United--with a match in hand--sit only four points behind Manchester City for the fourth and final Champions League spot, while West Ham are just a point behind United and are looking to sneak in.
At the bottom of the table, there is everything to play for. The gap between 17th and 19th is just two points, so these final two weeks will determine which of Newcastle, Sunderland, and Norwich City will hold onto their Premier League spot. Newcastle currently sits in that key 17th spot, but both Sunderland and Norwich City have one additional match to play, so these final days are vital.
Saturday sees seven matches on the card, and here they are:
Norwich City v Manchester United (7:45 am EST)
West Ham United v Swansea City (10 am EST)
Crystal Palace v Stoke City (10 am EST)
Sunderland v Chelsea (10 am EST)
Bournemouth v West Bromwich Albion (10 am EST)
Aston Villa v Newcastle (10 am EST)
Leicester City v Everton (12:30 am EST)
Of the seven matches on the day, three have major implications and therefore will have first-team selections all over the place. The other matches might see teams rotate a bit. No matter what, we should see some top players firing, including Jamie Vardy/Riyad Mahrez, Dimitri Payet, and Anthony Martial.
Here is the lineup I will be rolling with this week; keep in mind I will be using my All-Out Attack chip in BPL to get six players with double-matchweeks:
Fraser Forster; Leighton Baines, Phil Bardsley, Christian Fuchs; Payet, Yohan Cabaye, Willian, Michail Antonio; Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford, Sergio Aguero
David De Gea (V); Toby Alderweireld, Christian Fuchs; Roberto Firmino, Alexis Sanchez, Michail Antonio, Riyad Mahrez, Dimitri Payet (C); Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, Jamie Vardy
