The Premier League title race enters a crucial game week and the survival battle is in full flow. Here are the 5 things that you can look forward to in Game week 35 of EPL.
Chelsea’s Litmus test
The team from London was expected to run away with the title, however, a minor blip has left the title race wide open and this weekend could potentially decide the outcome. Chelsea will travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton, who are in excellent form at home. The Merseysiders have won the last 8 games at Goodison Park and have scored 29 goals in the process. This is the trickiest fixture left on the Blues calendar and taking 3 points away could potentially hand them the title.

The North-London derby
Tottenham Hotspur are on an 8-game winning streak in the Premier League. There is a lot at stake for both the sides. For the hosts it is a must win game to keep the pressure on front-runners Chelsea while Arsenal's chances of reaching the top four could take a major hit with a loss at the White hart lane. The match kicks off after Chelsea’s game and if the Blues lose against Everton, this will be an open, all-out clash.
Will Hull City take a major survival step?
Hull City were doomed until Marco Silva took charge. They currently are two points clear of the relegation zone and in a head-to-head battle with Swansea CIty. Hull will travel to St Mary’s Stadium to face Southampton while the Swans will travel to Old Trafford for a tough outing against Manchester United. If Hull can take away something from this match, they could very well deliver the knockout blow in the survival battle.

United’s European dilemma
Manchester United's manager said that his team will compete for the top 4 as long as it is mathematically possible. With the semi-finals of the Europa league coming up, Jose will have a decision to make as to who to field against Swansea City. The second leg of the semi-final will be sandwiched between clashes against Tottenham and Arsenal. Jose Mourinho might field a weakened XI to help his players be ready for the European adventure.
Will Liverpool’s robin hood-ism continue?
Liverpool have taken a lot of points from top teams but have dropped quite a few against lesser opponents. Coming on the back of a loss against Crystal Palace, Liverpool will look to get back on track in the race for top four. They were humiliated 3-0 in the corresponding fixture last season and will look to avoid a similar result this time around.
