Arsenal will be hoping to regain ground in their bid to finish in the top four when they return to Premier League action this weekend.

Liverpool's 2-1 comeback victory against Burnley last Sunday built up a five-point between themselves and the Gunners, though the north London outfit hold two games in hand.

Arsenal kick-off the weekend league action with their trip to West Brom, a game they lost 2-1 last season, in the 12.30pm kick-off on Saturday.

Further up the table, Chelsea travel to Stoke City for a Saturday 3pm kick-off knowing another three points would secure a minimum 10-point lead at the top heading into the final 10 games of the season.

The Blues also lost the reverse fixture last season, thanks to a solitary Marko Arnautovic goal.

Chelsea's main rivals for the title, Tottenham and Manchester City, are in action on Sunday. Spurs begin life, again, without the injured Harry Kane when they welcome Southampton to White Hart Lane.

City host Liverpool in the game of the weekend, knowing anything other than a win would see them leapfrogged.

In the battle against relegation, Crystal Palace are seeking a third straight win as they welcome Watford to Selhurt Park on Saturday.

Sam Allardyce has finally got Palace settled into a rhythm, with victories against Middlesbrough and West Brom lifting the Eagles out of the relegation zone.

Hull, in 18th, are just a point off safety but travel to Goodison Park to face an Everton side looking for their sixth home win on the bounce.

Finally, West Ham welcome Champions League quarter-finalists Leicester City to the London Stadium in a busy Saturday schedule.

The Hammers board have called on Bilic and his players to improve results in a bid for a top-half finish after Joshua King's hat-trick secured a last-gasp 3-2 win for Bournemouth last time out.
