Manchester City look for revenge against Tottenham in gameweek 22 as the Blues hope to make up ground on the top four.

Pep Guardiola’s side have lost two of their last three as the Spaniard has looked ever more flustered by the English Premier League. Against Everton in gameweek 21, Manchester City were humiliated 4-0 as the team could do nothing right on either end of the pitch.

Spurs defeated Manchester City in October, 2-0, and Mauricio Pochettino’s side is currently unbeaten in their last six.

The home team have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides. However, Spurs defeated City at the Etihad last term.

Spurs have won the last three matches between the two teams.

Liverpool vs. Swansea

Liverpool take their 17 match Premier League unbeaten run up against the league’s worst team at Anfield. Swansea are coming off a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal.

It doesn’t get much easier for Paul Clement as the Swans have only beaten Liverpool once in their last six meetings. Liverpool have drawn their last two Premier League fixtures, giving the Swans a little hope of a point on Merseyside.

Stoke vs. Manchester United

Stoke successfully took a point off of Manchester United at Old Trafford in October behind the strength of Joe Allen. However, Manchester United are a completely different team to the one that lost in October.

The Red Devils have soared behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is currently tied for the Premier League lead in goals scored with 14.

Stoke are unbeaten in their last three home matches against Manchester United, however. The Potters should be a handful for the Jose Mourinho’s team.

Arsenal vs. Burnley

Arsenal take a perfect record into their gameweek 22 fixture against Burnley. The Gunners have scored 11 goals in their last six matches against the Clarets.

Alexis Sanchez continues to lead Fantasy Premier League in points and will be difficult to stop on Sunday.

Arsenal waited until the last minute in gameweek 7 to score when Laurent Koscielny headed home a Theo Walcott cross in the second minute of stoppage-time.

Chelsea vs. Hull

Chelsea will welcome third from bottom Hull to Stamford Bridge in the final fixture of gameweek 22. The Blues dismantled Leicester City a week ago as Chelsea put three past the Foxes.

Forward Diego Costa missed last weekend’s match with a back injury, but is scheduled to be a part of the team on Sunday.

Hull have not beaten Chelsea in their last six meetings, and the Tigers have given up the second most goals in the Premier League with 45.

Hull will be without Dieumerci Mbokani and Ahmed Elmohamady who are both at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
