The Cherries will look to secure their status as a Premier League club for next season with a win today and Villa will look to salvage some pride before they go down eventually.
Crystal Palace vs Norwich
Pardew’s men are in a slump right now and another defeat could drag them into the relegation dogfight.
For Norwich, this is a must win game. The Canaries will get closer to safety if they win here.
After an impressive performance against Newcastle, Alex Neil’s side will look to take advantage of the misfiring Eagles.
Southampton vs Newcastle
Koeman will want to finish as high as possible this season and for Newcastle, it is a do-or-die situation.
Rafa Benitez cannot afford another defeat and this will be a fierce contest between two very competitive sides.
Swansea vs Chelsea
The Swans have made a tremendous recovery since the sacking of Garry Monk and will look to finish as high as possible.
Chelsea are unbeaten in 15 matches under Hiddink and the Blues will look to add to that.
Watford vs Everton
Watford and Everton will fight it out for a respectable midtable finish.
Both teams have been shaky at the back and it has cost them crucial points along the course of the season.
Both sides have some quality attacking threat and it should be an exciting game.
Man City vs West Brom
West Brom will look to dent City’s Champions league hopes for next season with an upset win here.
Pellegrini’s side are only just ahead of United in the standings and could drop out of top four if they drop points this week.
Sunderland vs Leicester
Sunderland will do their best to dent Leicester’s title hopes. The Black Cats need a few wins under their belt to ensure survival.
Meanwhile, Leicester will want to take advantage of Spurs’ tough fixture this week and increase the lead at the top of the table.
Liverpool vs Stoke
Liverpool take on Stoke City in the Premier League this weekend and the Reds will look to rest most of their key players for the midweek tie against Dortmund.
Several key players are injured/suspended and Klopp will field a second string side. Mark Hughes will look to avenge their two defeats against Liverpool this season.
Tottenham vs Manchester United
This is a huge game in the context of the title race.

Both teams have a lot to play for and it should be a cracking contest.
