Premier League and FA Cup Continues

This weekend we see action from both of English football’s top two competitions with the Premier league and FA Cup action getting underway.

The action kicks-off this Friday night in the Premier League at 8pm. Liverpool look to regain top spot over rivals this season Manchester City, when they take on Southampton who are battling to save their lives at the bottom of the table. Can Liverpool keep themselves in the title hunt or can Southampton take one step closer to survival?

A huge day of Saturday action kicks off in the Premier League as well. Bournemouth who are sitting in 12th position, and are just five points from the drop-zone take on relegation threatened Burnley. Already relegated Huddersfield who sit at the foot of the table take on Brendan Rodgers’ newly found side in Leicester City, who currently sit in 9th place in the top half of the table. Also at 3pm Newcastle take on Crystal Palace with just a point separating the sides from 14th and 15th place in the league table.

At 4pm the centre-stage will turn to the two remaining semi-final’s of the FA Cup at Wembley. Who will book their place in the final on the 19th of May?

Watford, who have went under the radar this season in the league, currently sitting 8th and look to carry on their road to the final when they take on Nuno Espirito Santos’ Wolves in the first game. Lets not forget that Wolves dumped out Manchester United in the quarter-final stages on a 2-1 score-line through Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez who has recently signed for a club record fee of £32 million. Who will be the first to book their spot in the FA Cup Final?

Also in the second semi-final of the day Manchester City, who overcame a tricky Saturday night contest against Newport County and recently defeated Championship side Swansea 3-2,  face a hard to break down Brighton. The Seasiders don’t sit pretty in the Premier League with 33 points and just above relegation, but have enjoyed an enjoyable cup run under Manager Chris Houghton. Can City continue their run good? or will Brighton cause a huge upset?
