EPL commentators on NBC: April 27 and 28

Is the Premier League title race over? Based on Manchester City’s form and the slump of Liverpool, it may be. Entering this weekend, it is Arsenal who sits atop the table. However, Manchester City is just one point behind the Gunners. Plus, Pep Guardiola’s side has a game in hand on the north London outfit. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all on the road this weekend, so there could be more changes at the top of the table.

Liverpool gets the weekend started with a trip down to London to face West Ham United. The Hammers have tapered off a bit this season, but it will still be a challenging fixture. A loss in the Merseyside derby may have ended any chance for Liverpool to send Jürgen Klopp out with a title, but the German is staying optimistic.

At 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aston Villa hosts Chelsea. Unai Emery’s side is through to a European semifinal in the Conference League, but it has sights set on the Champions League next season. Even though Villa has a six-point lead over Tottenham, Spurs have two games in hand, meaning two wins in those games could shake up Villa’s chances. Chelsea is looking for any kind of salvage to the season, and a few wins in the closing stages could allow the Blues to sneak into Europe next season.

On Sunday, we have the highlight game of the weekend. The latest iteration of the North London Derby has plenty at stake on Sunday. For Arsenal, a win is mandatory to keep pace with Manchester City in the title race. Tottenham needs every point it can get to stay on course to take the valuable fourth spot for the Champions League from Villa.
