After a busy week that included some midweek Premier League action, as well as the close of the winter transfer window, it’s set to be another weekend of frenetic, nervous, all-action Premier League football.

On Tuesday night, Manchester City missed the chance to narrow the gap on Manchester United at the top of the table after a disappointing goalless draw with QPR.

Roberto Mancini’s side face a difficult test this weekend, when Liverpool travel to the Etihad.

Both sides have been involved in transfer activity over the past few days, with Mario Balotelli leaving City to sign for AC Milan and Liverpool signing Phillipe Coutinho from Inter—both on long-term deals.

The match at the Etihad is the stand-out fixture of the weekend, but there’s still another few matches that have a lot riding on them—either in terms of battling against relegation, or fighting for a European place.

Let’s take a look at what are, in my opinion, the six key Premier League battles to watch this weekend, as well as my predictions for what the results will be in each game.
