As one of the most competitive Premier League seasons draws to a close, will there be even more surprises in the last 4 games? It's now or never for teams at the top and the bottom of the Premier League as we move into the Easter weekend schedule.
Liverpool (1.36 (4/11)) are away at Norwich (9.00 (8/1)) and although Norwich are desperate for points with only 4 games left to save themselves, Norwich's scoring form is terrible, and against a team like Liverpool who have scored plenty of goals this season it's hard to see Norwich getting any sort of result. However, Norwich do surprisingly have one of the best home defence records in the Premier League having conceded only 13 goals in 17 games this season. However they've scored only 15. Liverpool scored 5 in this fixture last season. (go to Norwich v Liverpool preview)
Chelsea will be chasing another win as they look ahead to that massive clash with Liverpool next weekend. Chelsea (1.20 (1/5)) play Sunderland (17.00 (16/1)), and the away side will need to win every game now in order to survive. After Sunderland's draw at Man City in midweek they will be hopeful of putting in another good performance, but Chelsea will be too professional here and should not slip up. Interestingly four seasons ago this fixture ended up a 7-2 win for Chelsea! (go to Chelsea v Sunderland preview)
Man City will be disappointed after that draw with Sunderland in midweek. Man City (1.20 (1/5)) face West Brom (16.00 (15/1)). Nothing but a win will do for City, but West Brom have been on good scoring form of late, putting 3 past Spurs and 3 past Cardiff. It's however a must win for City, so we don't expect them to falter again. (go to Man City v West Brom preview)
Arsenal and Everton are still fighting it out for 4th place. Everton (2.50 (6/4)) have a tough game at home to Man Utd (3.00 (2/1)). That loss to Crystal Palace in midweek really dented Everton's confidence after a great run in the league. It's going to be tight at Goodison Park as United will seek to end the season on good form. Everton away is a tough tie for United. United have won only twice at Everton in the last 6 seasons. It's also David Moyes' return to his old club. (go to Everton v Man Utd preview)
Arsenal (1.80 (4/5)) are away at Hull (4.75 (15/4)), who are certainly not safe from relegation this season with 36 points. This is in fact a warm up for the FA Cup final, so perhaps both sides won't want to give away much in the way of tactics that may benefit the other side come the final in May. After a poor run of form Arsenal bounced back with a good win over West Ham in midweek. However Hull is a tough away tie – they've conceded less than a goal per home game this season and may frustrate Arsenal. (go to Hull v Arsenal preview)
At the bottom of the Premier League Cardiff (2.50 (6/4)) play Stoke (3.00 (2/1)). Cardiff's downfall this season has been their inability to score with less than a goal per game. Stoke have won 4 of their last 5 games (and have lost only 1 of their last 7) and are safe from relegation. Stoke may just have the edge here without the pressure on them to win.

Fulham (6.50 (11/2)) are away at Spurs (1.53 (8/15)). Spurs have conceded a massive 48 goals this season, but it's either a great performance or a poor one with Spurs these days. Fulham are desperate for points and their nerves may just play into Spurs' hands. Fulham have conceded 74 goals in only 34 games this season, and a freely attacking Spurs could score a few here.
