Premier League Weds. preview: Giants collide in London
Seven more Premier League matches are on tap Wednesday, and here’s the scoop -- as well as stream links -- for all of ‘em.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester United -- 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN [ STREAM ]
Spurs need to win matches like this, against a Top Four competitor at home, if they want a place in the UEFA Champions League next season (or they could just win the UCL this season).
Chelsea vs. Bournemouth -- 2:45 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
The Blues open the day three points behind second place United, and could fall behind Liverpool with a loss.
Everton vs. Leicester City -- 2:45 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
One of the biggest moments of Everton’s season, as Big Sam should see this as a six-pointer when it comes to the quest for seventh against currently 7th place Leicester. Will Riyad Mahrez play?
Newcastle United vs. Burnley -- 2:45 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
Meanwhile, the visiting Clarets will hope high anxiety around striker-starved and transfer-limited St. James’ Park will help it gain ground on Everton, Leicester, or both.
Southampton vs. Brighton -- 2:45 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
Saints could send the visitors into the drop zone should they scoop up the three points they need to rise out of the Bottom Three.
Manchester City vs. West Brom -- 3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
Can Daniel Sturridge inject some more life into Alan Pardew’s men? It may not matter at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
Stoke City vs. Watford -- 3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold [ STREAM ]
Javi Gracia is tasked with helping the Hornets avoid the drop, and could let another team close ground if he cannot inspire something away from Watford at 18th place Stoke.
