M1 Arsenal vs Manchester City: Potential title decider as they meet in a Premier League clash just weeks after City beat Arsenal in the FA Cup.

M2 Bristol City vs Wigan Athletic: Bristol City are on a nine match unbeaten run, winning their last three game. Wigan’s weekend win over Huddersfield ended a run of 10 matches without success.

M3 Preston North End vs Luton Town: Preston have lost their last three fixtures. Luton are in fourth place in the Championship, in the promotion playoff places.

M4 Stoke City vs Huddersfield Town: Stoke have won four successive home clashes over Huddersfield, who are stuck in the Championship relegation zone.
