14:13, 02 Apr 2021

The Premier League is back after taking a break for the internationals! Here is everything you could possibly wish to know as all 20 teams prepare for action this Easter...

Chelsea vs West Brom

Where:  Stamford Bridge, London

When:  Saturday, April 3

Kick-off time:  12.30pm

TV:  BT Sport

Chelsea head into this one on the back of Thomas Tuchel scooping the Manager of the Month award after turning the Blues into a brick wall. The west Londoners have conceded just two goals in 14 matches since the German took charge.

West Brom have kept three clean sheets in their last six games but they have struggled to make it count, scoring just twice in that time. Sam Allardyce’s side need the wins desperately now, as they sit ten points off safety with only ten games remaining.

Sportsman Stat: West Brom are winless in 15 trips to Stamford Bridge, last winning 3-1 in September 1978.

Betfred Odds: The Blues are 11/2 to beat the Baggies 1-0.

Leicester vs Manchester City

Where:  King Power Stadium

When: Saturday, April 3

Kick-off time:  5.30pm

TV:  Sky Sports

Premier League leaders Manchester City may have won 24 of their last 25 matches across all competitions but there is never a great time to go to Leicester. The Foxes have won their last two home matches in league and cup, scoring eight goals in the process, and would move into second place with a victory, for a day at least.

Sportsman Stat: Leicester could become only the fourth club to do a league double over Pep Guardiola following Chelsea in 2016-17 and Man United and Wolves last season.

Betfred Odds: The Foxes are 10/1 to score more than 2.5 goals

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Where:  Emirates Stadium

When:  Saturday, April 3

Kick-off time:  8pm

TV:  Sky Sports

Arsenal will have to be switched on if they want to avoid a repeat of their last Premier League outing, going three behind at West Ham after only 32 minutes. They did though, show plenty of character to fight back and earn a draw.

Liverpool, meanwhile, battled hard to beat Wolves 1-0 nearly two weeks ago and will be glad they have another game on the road having lost their last six at Anfield.

Sportsman Stat: The Reds have managed just two wins in their last 20 Premier League games at Arsenal, claiming victory in August 2011 and August 2016.

Betfred Odds: Both teams to score and Liverpool to win is 3/1

Newcastle vs Tottenham

Where:  St James’ Park

When:  Sunday, April 4

Kick-off time:  2.05pm

TV:  Sky Sports

Newcastle have not won since January and Steve Bruce is under increasing pressure after the Magpies lost a crucial six-pointer 3-0 at Brighton and now sit just two points clear of the relegation zone.

Tottenham, meanwhile, have endured a stuttering season but are only three points off the top four heading into the weekend.

Sportsman Stat: The Magpies have lost five of their last six Premier League home matches against Tottenham, more than they had in their previous 26 top-flight clashes with the north Londoners

Betfred Odds: Gareth Bale is 4/1 to grab the game’s opening goal

HARRY KANE'S TOTTENHAM ARE THREE POINTS OFF THE TOP FOUR

Manchester United vs Brighton

Where:  Old Trafford

When:  Sunday, April 4

Kick-off time:  7.30pm

TV:  BT Sport

Manchester United have triumphed in three of their last five Premier League matches, ending the winning run of rivals City in the process. They’ve also kept four successive clean sheets in the league and will aim to add to that tally.

Brighton, meanwhile, are six points clear of the drop but with a quarter of the campaign still to go, the Seagulls will be desperate to pick up as many positive results as they can.

Sportsman Stat: 23% of goals scored in this Premier League fixture have been netted from the penalty spot

Betfred Odds: The Red Devils are 13/2 to score more than 3.5 goals

Leeds vs Sheffield United

Where:  Elland Road

When:  Saturday, April 3

Kick-off time:  3pm

Southampton vs Burnley

Where:  St Mary’s Stadium

When:  Sunday, April 4

Kick-off time:  12pm

TV:  Sky Sports

Sportsman Stat: The Saints have scored just four goals in their last eight meetings with Burnley

When:  Monday, April 5
