The race for fourth place in the Premier League will intensify this weekend as some of the leading contenders face tough clashes.
Tottenham host Stoke City at home looking to record their fifth win in their last six Premier League games.
Spurs will welcome back winger Gareth Bale from injury, but could face a tough challenge breaking down the toughest defence in the top flight. Stoke have been on an impressive run of form and are seven matches unbeaten in the top flight.
Spurs are currently in fourth place. Arch-rivals Arsenal are just two points behind Andre Villas-Boas’ men and visit Wigan in Saturday’s early kick-off. The Gunners produced an impressive display to hammer Reading 5-2 on Monday, with Santi Cazorla at the heart of the victory.
Wigan have been in terrible form of late and find themselves third from bottom in the Premier League table. The Latics have lost three and drew one of their last four games in the top flight. However in recent seasons they have had a knack of upsetting the big boys and the Gunners especially.
Everton are also just two points behind Tottenham in the race for that fourth Champions League spot. The Toffees face a difficult trip to West Ham on Saturday, looking to rediscover their early season form.
David Moyes’ side have drawn eight out of their last 11 games this season, but are still very much in the race for the Champions League spots. The Irons early season form has also dropped off and they have dropped down into the bottom half of the Premier League table.
A 0-0 draw at West Brom last time out may prove to be a catalyst to the Hammers form improving. In fact they are just six points off the European spots.
Other Premier League fixtures:
Manchester City vs. Reading

Southampton vs. Sunderland
