GAME WEEK 21 PREVIEWS AND PREDICTIONS
An exhilarating midweek saw Liverpool suffer their second defeat of the season and Chelsea were pegged back by a late Danny Welbeck equalizer. West Ham scored four against Watford and Crystal Palace obliterated Norwich in the first half. Manchester City continue their march towards the Premier League title. They defeated Brentford 1-0 in a very competitive game. Their title rivals both slipped up and now face each other in a action packed weekend.
GAME OF THE WEEKEND🦁
CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL
This is probably the most important game of the season thus far. Both sides are chasing City and having slipped up in midweek, they can’t afford to drop any more points. Chelsea let a 1-0 lead slip at the last minute as Danny Welbeck salvaged a point for Brighton. Lukaku got back on the scoresheet but in an interview this week he has said that he is unhappy at Chelsea and wishes to return to Inter at some stage in his career. Liverpool were below par as they lost 1-0 to Leicester at the King Power Stadium. This will be the last game in which Salah and Mané will participate before they depart for the African Cup of Nations. Both sides will need all 3 points. This game is balanced on a knifes edge.

WATFORD VS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
It’s hard to judge Watford after a 4-1 defeat to West Ham because they were out of action for so long. They took the lead through none other than Dennis but their defensive woes continued as they shipped 4 goals. They are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and that could prove costly. Spurs spurned a great chance to claim all 3 points against Southampton. The Saints took the lead through a sumptuous Ward Prowse strike but Salisu got sent of after conceding a penalty which Kane coolly converted. Spurs were unable to score another goal and the game ended 1-1. They should have enough firepower to take all 3 points at Vicarage road on Saturday. ONE TO WATCH: HARRY KANE
ARSENAL VS MANCHESTER CITY
The Gunners are on a fine run of form as they have won their last 4 league games. They got the chance to sit out of the midweek action and that could prove vital against a City side who have had quite a busy schedule of late. The Citizens have won their last 10 league games and it seems that no one will be able to stop them. They played out a hard fought 1-0 victory against Brentford and extended their lead at the top to 9 points. Arsenal lost the first encounter of the season between these two sides 5-0 and I’m sure that Arteta will want them to get revenge. Arteta however will not be able to attend the game as he is sidelined with Covid-19. This should be a great tactical matchup and I think this game could go either way

WHO SHOULD YOUR FANTASY CAPTAIN BE?🤑
It has been a poor season for the English striker to say the least but it seems that Antonio Conte has found a way to get Kane back into his groove. He has now scored for 3 games running. Spurs face a Watford defense this weekend whom are yet to keep a clean-sheet. Most of the other captaincy options face tough opposition but Kane is surely in poll position to take the captains armband this week as he looks to score for the fourth game in a row.
