Premier League talking points

This weekend’s Premier League fixtures could seal the fate of plenty of teams, both at the top and bottom of the table.

Here, Press Association Sport examines the key talking points ahead of another hectic weekend schedule.

Manchester City go hunting more records

Two goals and a victory over Huddersfield on Sunday will see Manchester City set a new Premier League points total and a new single-season scoring record. Two more wins from their final three matches would also leave Pep Guardiola’s imperious City with the most wins in a Premier League campaign. City have already blasted 102 league goals this term, with Chelsea boasting the record of 103 from their 2009/10 campaign. Chelsea also currently hold the record of 95 points in a single season.

Wenger’s long goodbye continues

Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final loss to Atletico Madrid has denied long-serving manager Arsene Wenger the fairytale ending of a first European trophy. The French boss will bring down the curtain on 22 years at the Gunners at the end of the season, and on Sunday will lead the side for the last time at home. The visit of Burnley represents another chance for the Emirates Stadium to laud the manager who revolutionised both Arsenal and English football. After the midweek loss at Atletico, the home faithful will be just as desperate as Wenger for the Gunners to get back to winning ways.
