An enthralling weekend of Premier League action lies ahead, with the top four sides facing off in two mouthwatering fixtures on Sunday.
Leaders Leicester go to Arsenal at midday, before Manchester City welcome second-placed Tottenham to the Etihad at 4.15pm.
Those two matches sandwich Liverpool’s trip to Aston Villa, which kicks off at 2.05pm.
There are seven fixtures on Saturday too, including Manchester United’s trip to Sunderland and Chelsea’s clash with Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.
Which players can you rely on to get you the points this weekend? And which ones are sidelined? Take a look at our gameweek 26 preview…
Kurt Zouma won’t feature for Chelsea again this season after damaging his knee ligaments in the draw with Manchester United last weekend.
Victor Wanyama is unavailable for Southampton after receiving a straight red card during their clash with West Ham.
Meanwhile, Adam Johnson has had his contract terminated by Sunderland after pleading guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child.
Favourable match-ups of the week
Manchester United have played well in their last three fixtures and go to strugglers Sunderland on Saturday. They should have enough to win that, especially if Louis van Gaal continues to encourage an attacking style of play.
Meanwhile, Chelsea, who haven’t lost under Guus Hiddink, host Newcastle. The Magpies have lost their last five away games in all competitions.
Big names/bandwagons to avoid
Daniel Sturridge’s return after two months out in midweek might tempt you to put the Liverpool striker into your team with the Reds facing bottom club Aston Villa.
Villa have picked up seven points from their last four league games though and are desperate for points to give themselves a chance of survival.
Dele Alli is still fairly cheap and has either scored or assisted a goal in seven of his last 11 appearances.
Emmanuel Adebayor will start for Crystal Palace this weekend. The Eagles take on Watford at Selhurst Park, with the Hornets on a run of just one clean sheet in their last eight matches.
Who should I captain?
Romelu Lukaku. Everton face West Brom at home this weekend, with the Baggies on a run of just one win in nine games in all competitions.
They were lucky to scrape past Peterborough on penalties in their FA Cup replay on Wednesday and Lukaku will fancy his chances to add to his season’s tally of 20 goals.
The Belgian ended a run of five games without a goal with a penalty against Stoke last weekend and he will have good memories of facing West Brom – where he spent the 2012-13 season on loan – after scoring a brace in the Toffees’ 3-2 win at the Hawthorns earlier in the season.
Wayne Rooney is also in red-hot form for Manchester United, while Harry Kane will fancy his chances of netting against Manchester City’s shaky defence on Sunday.
Next weekend will see the return of the FA Cup, which means the next Premier League fixtures after gameweek 26 will take place on Saturday 27 February.
Leicester, who are guaranteed to top the table at the end of this weekend, host strugglers Norwich, while Manchester United welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford the Sunday.
Manchester City’s and Liverpool’s respective matches with Newcastle and Everton have been cancelled due to the former two’s involvement in the Capital One Cup final.
