Good morning and welcome to The Independent’s live coverage of today’s 3pm Premier League matches, with both Manchester United and Manchester City in action.
With all eyes on the north London derby at 12:30pm, the two Manchester clubs take a bit of a back seat, but they will have their attentions on the result between Tottenham and Arsenal as it could have a huge impact on the remainder of the season for these two sides. United are just a point off Arsenal and, more interestingly, five points off third-placed Spurs, while City will be hoping for an Arsenal victory to see Tottenham’s title challenge killed off for good.
Once the 3pm games get underway, it’s off to Old Trafford we go where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are looking to continue their charge up the table as they take on relegation-threatened Southampton. City meanwhile are heading to the south coast to take on Bournemouth, who are looking to get back into the top half of the table.
Elsewhere, Brighton can further dent Huddersfield’s hopes as the face off in a relegation battle at the Amex, while Burnley host Crystal Palace at Turf Moor. High-flying Wolves take on Cardiff City, while the day’s evening kick-off sees West Ham take on Newcastle at the London Stadium.
Team news for the 3pms will be released an hour before kick-off and we’ll bring you all the latest as they drop at 2pm.
