The 2022/2023 season of the Premier League is nearing its end, as usual, there is a lot at stake for every team in the league.
This weekend is expected to be another thrilling episode.
Let’s identify four games that could have surprising outcomes.
These games are not limited to Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa vs Liverpool, Man Utd vs Bournemouth and Chelsea vs Manchester City.
- Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest: Anything can happen at this point of the season and Arsenal seems to be having a hard time. They lost 3-0 to Brighton at home last weekend, which was a shocker for many. They were supposed to win but they failed miserably.
It would not be a shock if they give Man City the title today by dropping points at Forest. Forest drew 2-2 with Chelsea in their previous game as they battled to avoid relegation. This game could result in more trouble for Arsenal’s season finale.
- Chelsea vs Manchester City: Chelsea is in trouble. A draw with Forest, normally, is not a good result for the Blues. But one could argue that they have improved since they beat Bournemouth 2-0 before that. It is possible that Frank Lampard’s Blues would want to ruin the party for the soaring Manchester City team. If the West London team steps up their game, they could prevent City from clinching the title this weekend.
Aston Villa vs Liverpool: Aston Villa are eyeing a spot in Europe this season. The Villains have been impressive since Unai Emery took over and could easily defeat any team. However, a loss will dash Liverpool’s hopes of making it to the top four where they are trying to overtake Manchester United. Jurgen Klopp’s men, who have won their last 7 matches, could face a rude shock from Emery’s resilient side.
Man Utd vs Bournemouth: Red Devils’ game against Bournemouth is a tricky one. A loss to Bournemouth would give Liverpool a chance to climb to fourth place if they beat Aston Villa. Man United have been inconsistent since winning the Carabao Cup and rarely win consecutive matches with a very poor away record this season. Before their 2-0 home win against Wolves, the Red Devils had fallen 1-0 to Brighton (away) and the same result was repeated against West Ham United. Bournemouth could hinder Erik Ten Hag’s side’s top-four ambitions.
