MANAGER REACTION


SPOTLIGHT

Teams:

Crystal Palace - 

Liverpool - 


It will be crucial for both Liverpool and United to notch important results given their push for top four and European qualification. 

Palace have not won in 11 PL games as manager Alan Pardew will be desperate to get a result at home.

Meanwhile, Manchester United will be hungry to notch a fifth victory on the trot across all competitions. LVG had stated recently that he has asked his side to believe they can clinch a top four place and how much the words have rubbed on will be interesting to watch. 

West Brom boast of a good defensive unit and will look to defy the United side by placing bodies well in line.

Saturday saw some enthralling brand of football played and there were some vital movements in the table as both the bottom and the top gaining solidarity and clarity.

Leicester are five points clear at top, as Villa went down the barrel further and is looking set for the relegation this term. 


Here is the table ahead of Sunday's tie.
