6 Key Premier League Battles to Watch This Weekend

Rafael Benitez has reached breaking point - will this weekend get any better for the Spaniard?

The Premier League takes over once again this weekend as the battle for European places and survival gathers pace.

Last weekend, Chelsea went to Manchester City and lost 2-0 to all but end their faint hopes of winning the Premier League title and pile even more pressure on their manager.

Since then, Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez has heavily criticized the Chelsea board and sections of his own support, but we'll get to that in just a bit.

City's win over Chelsea narrowed the gap at the top of the table to just 12 points, but they still have a mountain to climb if they are to retain their championship.

At the other end of the table, Wigan's 3-0 win at Reading was perhaps the surprise result of last weekend, especially when you consider that Reading have been in decent form of late.

And then of course, we come to Tottenham's man of the moment, Gareth Bale.

Bale further enhanced his growing reputation with another couple of cracking goals as Spurs beat West Ham 3-2 on Monday night.

Is Bale world-class?

You'll have to read on to get my thoughts on that!

Join me as I give my reaction to the latest club news and preview six of this weekend's key Premier League fixtures.

As usual, my predictions will be at the bottom of each slide.
