Reigning champions, Manchester City will be looking to cut the gap between them and toppers Arsenal. Here are some key points to look out for in the Premier League round 15.

Sunday fiesta at the Bridge

Chelsea against Arsenal is one of the biggest occasions in an English season. The fixture always produces nail biting action. Chelsea were comprehensively beaten by Arsenal 4-2 in this fixture last season. The Blues will be hungry for revenge, and much of the spotlight will be on Chelsea’s striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Less than a year after he was relieved of Arsenal’s captaincy and shipped to Barcelona, Aubameyang is back in the Premier League, this time as Arsenal’s rival.

Injury ridden Spurs and Liverpool face each other

Liverpool has had the upper hand over Tottenham Hotspur in recent times, winning 14 of their last 27 meetings. However, the two draws last season against Spurs prevented Liverpool from winning the Premier League title. This time around the stakes are a lot different with both sides playing far from their best football. Fitness issues have played a massive role and will continue to do so with Cristian Romero, Heung-Min Son, Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison out for Spurs. While, Liverpool will miss the services of Arthur, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, James Milner, Joel Matip and Naby Keita.

End of the road for Ralph Hasenhuttl?

When Southampton defeated Chelsea at the end of August, spirits would have been surely high at the club to embark on a successful run of results. However, The Saints have lost five and won just a single match since then. Austrian manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl has been in charge of Southampton for almost four years now. His side welcome in form Newcastle this weekend before travelling to Liverpool next weekend. The odds are heavily against Southampton in both the fixtures and the owners could be left with no choice but to part ways with Hasenhuttl.
