If Chelsea beats Liverpool, Manchester City could collect three points against Crystal Palace and close the gap between them and the top of the table as well. That would put them three points behind Liverpool with a game in hand, but the only part of the equation they can control is getting a win against Crystal Palace.
Palace have little to play for, but manager Tony Pulis says his team owe it to the league to play their best.
“We have a responsibility to the Barclays Premier League and to the rest of the teams that we give the best we possibly can,” Pulis said, via ESPN FC.
“We know our two games at home are going to be very difficult against two top teams and Fulham might sill be fighting to get out of the bottom three – other teams around us expect us to put in a shift so it’s all to play for.
“I hope there won’t be any let-up from the players.
“I think the fact they are big games, especially the two home games which are on television as well, gives the lads the opportunity to show everyone how well they’ve been playing and they have been playing well.”
