The pick of Premier League matches for this round sees Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on the evening of Saturday 12 March. This clash is very much about two teams fighting for a spot in the top four, even though they have yet to fully realise their identities and potential under respective managers Ralf Rangnick and Antonio Conte respectively.
“We know we have to fight to build something important with the situation but it’s important to know the situation,” said Spurs boss Antonio Conte.
“Maybe our fans shouldn’t be disappointed with the [situation] – instead they should try and push us and stay behind us. The players need to find the right atmosphere and feel no pressure about a target that in this moment you can’t reach. I’ve been saying this since my arrival.”
Another intriguing clash sees Chelsea host Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge. While the Blues’ class is undeniable, the Magpies have been one of the headline-making teams of recent weeks, enjoying an upturn in form which has significantly boosted their survival hopes and will see them head to London with a measure of confidence that they can cause trouble for the reigning European and World champions.
“It’s a case of just getting the fundamentals right, and that means making sure the work on the training ground is as good and detailed as it can be, and making sure that the team is as organised as it can be,” said Newcastle boss Eddie Howe.
“Then, it’s about trying to develop every single player to the best of my ability, and that’s always been a huge focus of mine. Whether the player is in the team or out of the team, it’s about trying to make sure every player improves.”
Elsewhere in the Premier League this round, champions Manchester City will be in action on Monday night away to Crystal Palace; Liverpool will face a testing game away to Brighton & Hove Albion in the early kick-off on Saturday; and Sunday’s pick is Arsenal welcoming Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium in London.
