6 Key Premier League Battles to Watch This Weekend

After a midweek full of Champions League and Europa League fixtures, the Premier League takes centre stage once again this weekend.

It's the business end of the season now, and almost every result will have an impact at both ends of the table.

The marquee fixture is undoubtedly Monday night's game between Manchester United and Manchester City at Old Trafford. When these two giants met back in December, Robin van Persie (pictured) scored a late winner to earn a 3-2 victory for United.

Since then, Sir Alex Ferguson's side have never looked back, and if they win on Monday, their lead atop the table will be a massive 18 points, which should virtually guarantee them the title.

There's plenty more to discuss than just the Manchester derby though. There are key games across the country, so join me as we look at six of the key Premier League battles to watch this weekend.

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