Aston Villa will host their Sheffield United.
Both teams have promotion in common but their objectives are different. Sheffield United have been the best of the newly-promoted sides and are in place for European football in the coming season. Champions League football is a possibility of a Sheffield United side that would be 5th in the league with a win at Aston Villa.
For Aston Villa, a win against Sheffield United will get them out of the relegation-zone.
Manchester City are the only reason Liverpool isn’t champions.
It hasn’t been the season many expected for Manchester City but finishing below 2nd in the league will be seen as a massive failure.
Will Arsenal go to the Etihad Stadium and do Liverpool a favor they don’t really need?
After getting knocked out of the Europa League by Olympiacos, Arsenal’s only way to Champions League football in the coming season is to qualify from the league. They are a point above the middle of the table and will need the maximum points against Manchester City to help with their objectives.
