    We start off with West Brom vs Arsenal. Some will hope Arsenal Fan TV put some good content up should Arsenal fail to get all 3 points.

    Palace & Sunderland both look likely to get relegated so they'd be hoping to get something out of their games vs Watford & Burnley respectively.

    Everton look set in stone for a Europa spot and have a 7 point gap between them and West Brom. For mine this game is probably more important to Hull in their hope to stay up.

    Last time Chelsea played Stoke it was a tricky game for them but they still won 4-2. Another 3 points for them would further cement a spot on top and another week closer to lifting the trophy.

    West Ham are in no mans land for the rest of the season. Won't be in Europa or relegated so the rest of the season should be uneventful for them. Leicester on the other had are making history in the Champions League but the question I have is will they field a strong team post-Sevilla game or give the players a rest, possibly lose and get closer to relegation.

    Some say (Not me) Bournemouth are in the relegation battle. A loss to Swansea here could make it a bit more obvious.

    Middlesbrough for mine are the worst team in the comp and look a cert to go down. Man United would love to rebound and get the 3 points after being KO'ed from the FA Cup.

    With Harry Kane injured Spurs will hope that their top 4 spot isn't put in danger. They are for mine the clear 2nd best team in the comp but will Soton's Gabbiadini be a nuisance to them?

    Match of the round 3rd vs 4th Man City vs Liverpool. A win for Man City makes the gap between 3rd and 4th a bit bigger which would probably mean they have a good chance of Champions league football. A win for Liverpool gives them a chance to go above Man City (but City have a game in hand so a win later would put it back to how it was) and makes it harder for sides outside the top 4 to get a look in.

    Stoke away is always tough. Should be some more kicking coming our way, we showd versus United that it shouldn't affect us too much.

    Need to keep winning and not give any sucker a chance.

    Who was the last manager currently managing in the Premier league to win the PL title?

    That one might stump a few but put your thinking caps on.

    Anyway hoping City smash Liverpool and for Everton, Chelsea, Man Utd and Southampton wins.

    Yeah, I thought that was too obvious so there must be a catch.

    No gag. Just a bit of trivia. Well done.
    Mourinho the most recent PL title winner.

    Mous the most recent PL winner, Pep the most recent title winner and Contes won his last 3. Not sure it means much this season though.

    10 years ago this month is the last time Mourinho won EPL manager of the month.

    I wonder how he didn't win one during the 2014/15 season? Must be the agenda the FA have against him.

    Great question! It certainly had me scratching my head to begin with but I got it right in the end. Like it could be anyone else LOL.

    I was going to play a prank on you and say Arsene Wenger LOL, that would have been so funny,

    Haha Pep won a one team league. As did Conte. But we are only talking Premier League anyway.

    bar any disasters at monaco we come in in good/great form and no injuries besides gundogan/gabby.

    sterling, kun and sane have really started firing together. well overdue to a win in a competition that matters over pool. hopefully this is the one.

    He'd be next actually.... What is it 14 years ago? Funny how the specialist in failure has never won the title since Mourinho came to England. Won it the season before and has failed ever since. We all know how deplorable his record v Mourinho is and while Mourinho has gone off to enjoy success in other countries since managing Chelsea to such success the first time i think the psychological pain Mourinho has inflicted on Wenger since arriving in England has a lot to do with his ultimate failure.

    Lol obviously the sooner the league is wrapped up the better. Still a lot of games to be played which means we are far from home.

    Also want the top four race to be as tight as possible as it makes for a more interesting finish.
