After an exciting round of mid-week games, the English Premier League returns with even more interesting fixtures for the weekend. Football fans will catch the action on DStv.
The encounter between Chelsea and Manchester United is one of the most revered rivalries in the EPL.
Today, these two football giants will clash in what is expected to be a breathtaking encounter. Manchester United appears to be back to winning ways after a dominating performance against Tottenham on Wednesday.
With 10 shots on target, the Erik Ten-Hag side netted twice in the second half. Nine-placed Brentford held Chelsea to a goalless draw at Gtech Community Stadium also on Wednesday.
Fourth-placed Chelsea sits above Manchester United with one point. The match scheduled for 5:30 pm WAT, will be streamed live on DSTV SuperSport Premier League Channel 203.
Manchester City will host Brighton
at 3:00 pm WAT. Manchester City ranks 2nd, while Brighton & Hove Albion hold the 8th position. Despite the high accolades they have received throughout the season, Man City heads into this match four points adrift league leader, Arsenal, and without a goal in either of their two most recent games in all competitions.
However, Pep Guardiola’s side has had almost a week to recover from the 1-0 defeat at Liverpool, last weekend, and they will look to return to winning ways when they host Brighton today.
Liverpool will face Nottingham Forest
Their last Premier League encounter was on April 5, 1999. It ended in a 2-2 draw, but Nottingham Forest was relegated at the end of the season. 23 years later, Forest meets the Reds again today at Anfield. With only six points, Nottingham is in the relegation zone, therefore, a win over Liverpool will go a long way to keep their hope, of surviving the 2022/2023 season, alive.
