‘This year’s our year.’ Sound familiar?
Every season, there are always a couple of young English talents that burst out of relative obscurity. In recent years we’ve seen Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley, Marcus Rashford and Dele Alli all make huge impressions on the Premier League. This season, it has been the turn of Trent-Alexander Arnold.
West Brom staged a late comeback from a two goal deficit to share the points with Liverpool, however it is more than likely they will be relegated on Sunday when Swansea City take on champions Manchester City.
West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool
Venue: The Hawthorn
TV: Sky Sports Premier League
Referee: Stuart Attwell
It is the 151st meeting between these two sides in all competitions over the many years of the beautiful game we’ve all come to know and love. With both teams at opposite ends of the table, both with completely different tasks at hand, is this one a tough one to call?
In a game which has seen many goals in the last 4 meetings, we see goals again but all one way, as Liverpool emerged 3-0 victors at Anfield against Bournemouth.
Liverpool vs AFC Bournemouth
Referee: Chris Kavanagh
Liverpool host Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday, with Jurgen Klopp’s side fresh off the back of progressing to the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in over 10 years.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
Venue: Selhurst Park
Referee: Neil Swarbrick
Liverpool’s trip to Selhurst Park is marred with injuries on both sides, but it’s a race for the top four for Liverpool and a race against the clock for Crystal Palace in their bid to beat the drop and stave off relegation from the Premier League.
As we approach the business end of the season, the annual debate over who should be crowned as the PFA Player of the Year rears its head once again. The likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane are rightly being touted as some of the favourites, but one man has outshone them all.
