With just a handful of games remaining this season the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ sides still have plenty to play for.

Liverpool lead the title race by just two points from Manchester City, although Pep Guardiola’s side have what could be a crucial game in hand on the Reds.

City remain slight favourites with the bookmakers to finish first and there will be plenty of punters eager to use this bet365 bonus code to back them to retain their title.

They have a chance to regain top spot on Saturday lunchtime when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s side are aiming to make it 14 league victories from their last 15 matches and they are strongly fancied to pick up three points this weekend.

City triumphed 1-0 in the reverse fixture back in October and haven’t been beaten by Spurs in the league since 2016.

Liverpool visit Cardiff City on Sunday hoping to extend their unbeaten league record to 13 matches. The Reds were impressive against Chelsea last weekend and should prove too classy for the Bluebirds.

City’s game at Manchester United on April 24 could be the one that determines the destination of this season’s title.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be desperate to derail their local rivals’ challenge, but a victory at Old Trafford would hand the initiative to City.

Both title contenders look good bets to win their final three matches of the season, meaning the derby game against United is likely to make or break City’s bid.

With Spurs expected to drop points against City, the Easter weekend could be pivotal in the race to secure a Champions League qualification place this term.

Spurs are currently third in the table, one point ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea with Man Utd a further two points adrift in sixth place.

Arsenal will fancy their chances of following up Monday’s victory at Watford when they welcome Crystal Palace to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Gunners have lost just one of their last 18 meetings with Palace in all competitions and should enhance that record this weekend.

Chelsea also face what looks to be a winnable game as they host Burnley at Stamford Bridge. The Blues ran out 4-0 winners at Turf Moor back in October and can complete the double in this one.

Man Utd are also expected to collect three points when they travel to Goodison Park to meet Everton. The Red Devils haven’t been beaten by the Merseyside club since 2015 and they can keep that run going on Sunday.
