The three clubs competing for the Champions League positions face teams still embroiled in the fight for survival.
Chelsea face a trip to relegation threatened Aston Villa, in the only Premier League game on Saturday. The visitors would move one-step closer to clinching a Champions League spot with a victory at Villa Park.
Meanwhile, a Villans win would secure their safety for the season. However, Paul Lambert’s side can afford to slip-up, with a trip to rivals Wigan on the last day of the season.
Elsewhere, Stoke will be looking to secure their Premier League status, as the Potters host fifth place Tottenham at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday. The Potters only need one point from their remaining matches to ensure safety.
Spurs are in desperate need of a win to aid their chase for a top four spot in the Premier League. Andre Villas-Boas’ side are a point behind fourth-place Arsenal and three points behind third place Chelsea. However, both Spurs rivals have better goal differences.
On Tuesday Tottenham’s arch-rivals Arsenal face struggling Wigan at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners have the advantage over Tottenham, due to a far superior goal difference.
The visitors are three points away from safety and desperately need a victory from this fixture, as if results go against them this weekend the Latics may take the final relegation spot. Prior to this clash, the Latics have the distraction of the FA Cup final on Saturday against Manchester City.
Both Sunderland and Southampton are still in danger of relegation. The pair go head to head at the Stadium of Light on Sunday. A draw maybe good enough to ensure both clubs safety, if Wigan fails to win on Tuesday night.
Other Premier League fixtures:
Everton vs. West Ham

Norwich vs. West Brom
QPR vs. Newcastle
Manchester United vs. Swansea
Reading vs. Manchester City
Can Wigan pull off a miracle victory at Arsenal?
