The biggest game of week 23 is a London Derby which uploads the Gunners against the Blues. The two teams are currently fighting for the top four slot.
6 points separate the two sides and a win for Arsenal is like a lifeline and a loss means 9 points gap will be between them while draw means maintaining the status quo – 6 points gap!
Man United and Arsenal have the same points (41) but Arsenal have superior goal difference. +14 against Man United’s +12. On this premise Man. United fans will be passionate Blues for 90 minutes, thanks to vested interest.
Going into week 23 Liverpool leads the pack with 57 points and Man City hold 53 with of course +2 superior goal margin. Liverpool have (+40) while Man City have (+42).
Winning is the habits of the top 4 teams while losing is that of the relegation-threatened sides. The Magpies (Newcastle) are at No. 18; Fulham 19 and Huddersfield 20.
But a win for Newcastle could take them from that dicey position to as far as No. 15 depending on the outcome of the other teams battling relegation with them.
Welcome to week 23!
