6 Key EPL Battles to Watch This Weekend

Last weekend's football was somewhat overshadowed by unfortunate scenes at Wembley during one of the FA Cup semi-finals and reports of violence after the Tyne-Wear derby up in Newcastle. Let's just hope that this weekend we can focus on proper football.

Controversies aside, last weekend saw Robin van Persie (pictured, celebrating with Sir Alex Ferguson) end his goal drought after netting Manchester United's second goal in their 2-0 win over Stoke. The result increased United's lead at the top and sent Stoke plunging towards the relegation zone.

Elsewhere, QPR and Reading failed to win (or score) when they played Everton and Liverpool, respectively. It's sad to say, but surely both of those sides will already be preparing for life in the Championship next season. It's no longer a matter of if, but rather when their relegation is confirmed.

There are still sides fighting for survival and European places, so that's what this week's article will focus on. Sit back, relax and join me as we take a look at the six matches to watch this weekend.

As usual, my predictions will be at the bottom of each slide. Feel free to leave yours in the comments section below.
