Premier League — 03 May 2013

Arsene Wenger's side Arsenal could move up to third in the Premier League table with a win at QPR on SaturdayThe Premier League games on Saturday focus on the battle for Champions League places and the last remaining relegation spot.

One of the big games on Saturday sees Norwich hosting Aston Villa at Carrow Road.

A win for either side should secure their Premier League status.

Norwich are just a point above Villa in the Premier League table, who are five points clear of the drop zone, although Wigan have a game in-hand.

Wigan meanwhile faces a trip to the Hawthorns and West Brom. A defeat would make survival a very unlikely prospect for the Latics. West Brom will just be looking to finish the season on a high note.

Midtable West Ham are now safe from the drop and looking for a top ten finish this season. The Hammers currently sit tenth in the Premier League table. The Hammers host struggling Newcastle at the Boleyn Ground.

The Magpies are just five points clear of the drop zone, after last weekend’s demoralising 6-0 home defeat to Liverpool. The away side will be desperate to pick up points on their trip to London. A win could see Alan Pardew’s side safe from the threat of relegation.

In the race for the Champions League places, Tottenham host Southampton at White Hart Lane. Spurs will kick-off off their game two points behind arch-rivals Arsenal, who are fourth in the Premier League table.

The home side are not yet mathematically safe from relegation, but could secure their safety if results go their way.

Arsenal is another team hoping to secure a place in the Champions League and the Gunners visit already-relegated side QPR on Saturday. The Gunners could move into third spot with victory at Loftus Road. QPR are playing for nothing more than pride and will be hoping not to finish bottom of the table this season.
