Another victory against the North London club that they beat in their last three Premier League games and City will go to the top for at least a day. For Tottenham, a victory would have come a long way in their push for a fourth-place finish.

The Everton record in the Premier League against United is notoriously bad, having lost more games against Manchester United than any other team against another league history.

Two for a football offer

Watch The Run In on Sky Sports with two football channels for the price of one.

But Sunday presents Everton the opportunity to push for seventh place and a place in the Europa League. After winning three of their last four games, the Merseyside club will feel safe in front of a US side that was outclassed at the Nou Camp mid-week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, meanwhile, need a win to stay in the first four races and leave their Champions League exit behind them.

Can Cardiff overtake the leaders of the ranking en route to salvation? (Cardiff vs Liverpool, Sunday, live on Sky Sports PL from 15.30 pm)

At the beginning of the week Liverpool could have expected a sleepy and ordinary victory, but Cardiff opened the relegation relegation with a 2-0 win at Brighton's 17th place on Tuesday, closing the gap in two points.

As a result, Sunday's game takes on an even greater importance. For Liverpool, winning the league remains the goal and serves three points for each game to keep the city away from their shoulders.

Will resilient Burnley damage Chelsea's four best deals? (Chelsea vs Burnley, Monday, live on Sky Sports PL from 19:00)

Chelsea's 2-0 defeat by Liverpool on Super Sunday softened their first four hopes, but first they had won the previous three games and finished level on points with Arsenal in fourth place at 66 points in weekend.

But they run into a Burnley team that has won the last three and has it all – but has secured the security of the Premier League.

Chelsea have won six of their nine Premier League games against Burnley, while Sean Dyche's team have won only one of their last 11 games at Chelsea in all competitions. Chelsea should win this.

Can Bournemouth be based on Brighton thrashing? (Bournemouth vs Fulham, Saturday, 15:00)

Bournemouth is six points from seventh place and still hopes to snatch a potential place in the Europa League, and will feel energized against Scott Parker's team playing for nothing but pride.

Also Fulham's record at Vitality Stadium is not favorable, having won only two of their 13 league games at Bournemouth.

How will Watford cope without Troy Deeney? (Huddersfield vs. Watford, Saturday, 3:00 pm)

Huddersfield is down and out, but Watford is not and will want to bounce strong after being unlucky not to take a point against Arsenal on Monday Night Football.

The FA Cup finalists are one point from the seventh position, but their run-in has been made more difficult by the fact that Troy Deeney will miss the next three matches by suspension.

Huddersfield can take confidence in their good record against Watford in the Premier League. The Hertfordshire club could become the first team that Huddersfield beat three times in the competition.

Is Leicester able to maintain seventh place? (West Ham vs Leicester, Saturday, 3:00 pm)

Leicester is in pole position for seventh place, although the Wolves, who have a game in hand, are breathing deeply.

It means that Leicester must forget the 1-0 defeat on Friday night at Newcastle and overtake West Ham, who has only won one of their last nine matches against them.

A higher end seems to be the goal now for Manuel Pellegrini's team, which will be without suspect Robert Snodgrass this weekend. He was given a ban on improper conduct for UK anti-doping officials.

Will Brighton stop the crash against the demoralized wolves? (Wolves vs Brighton, Saturday, 15:00)

It's a great game for Brighton. They are in a losing game of four league games and are now completely immersed in a relegation battle.

The pressure is on Chris Hughton to deliver all three points, but they have to do it against Wolves, whose semi-final FA Cup appearance in Watford seems to have influenced their seventh place while they fell in a 3-1 loss at Southampton Saturday.

Can Newcastle produce a display to impress Rafa? (Newcastle vs Southampton, Saturday, 5.30pm)

Newcastle is anything but safe in the Premier League for another year, but Rafael Benitez declared after the 1-0 win over Leicester that he wants investment insurance if he wants to extend his contract that expires at the end of the season.

In the immediate future, getting the most out of a possible championship seems to be the priority with the club that seems to need to convince the Spanish to stay rather than the opposite.

But Southampton is still not completely out of the battle for relegation, as they are five points behind Cardiff in 18th place with five games to go.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's rebel team only lost one of their last nine Premier League games against Newcastle and would like to gain ground after the 3-1 win over Wolves.

Unai Emery will rest the players after Arsenal's trip to Naples? (Arsenal vs Crystal Palace, Sunday, 4:00 pm)

A strenuous victory against Watford on Monday Night Football would have done little to convince the Arsenal fans. In the Emirates, Unai Emery's team will see themselves engaged in a more enjoyable performance as they go for the first four.

Emery could choose to rest the players after playing Napoli in the Europa League return match on Thursday night, as they will have played twice in the space of four days.

But that could risk the London rivals Palace, who could still reach a milestone in the top ten, sparking a shocked surprise.
