Chelsea can strengthen their top-four chances with a vital win at Manchester United this afternoon, Lille should be too strong for Nimes in Ligue 1 and Houston Rockets can make a statement in the NBA playoffs.
Chelsea went into this weekend’s fixtures in fourth spot and they can make sure they are still in pole position in the battle for a top-four finish in the Premier League with a win at Manchester United this afternoon.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s beleaguered troops have lost seven of their last nine games across all competitions and they offered no resistance in their 2-0 loss to Manchester City at Old Trafford in midweek.
Chelsea have been solid if uninspiring in recent weeks with five wins in their last seven, but this may be the perfect time to take on an out-of-sorts United as they seek a crucial win.
Lille host Nimes in Ligue 1 this afternoon and can pick up all three points as they bid to hold on to second spot.
Les Dogues have five wins in their last seven games at home but clean sheets have been an issue, as they have just one shut out in their last five games.
Nimes have lost eight of their last nine away games but they have at least managed a goal in their last three and a home win with both teams to score stands out in this French top-flight clash.
Houston head to two-time defending champions Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semi-finals tonight and the Rockets can claim an early advantage in the best-of-seven series with a Game 1 win.
The visitors have no injury concerns and have had two extra days off after ending their first-round series with Utah Jazz in five games, while GSW have two players definitely out and talisman Steph Curry is a concern.
The Rockets have stepped up a level since the postseason began, while Golden State have yet to find their rhythm and, at a big price, an away win appeals in this high-quality NBA clash.
