LONDON, Sporting Alert – The English Premier League fixtures, EPL standings and leading scorers for Week 16 this coming weekend.
Surprised leaders Leicester City will take on Chelsea on Monday to close out Week 16, but there will be several fixtures prior to this matchup.
Kicking things off on Saturday at 7:45 am ET is the clash between Norwich City against Everton at Carrow Road.
Everton are sitting ninth in the league standings with 22 points, but have drawn three of the last four game, including back-to-back ties against Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.
At Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace will be trying to move into the top five with a win against Southampton, which dropped two of its last three games.
Manchester City play hosts to managerless Swansea City with the chance to go back atop of the standings before Leicester and Arsenal play their games, while Manchester United, on the back of a poor performance in the Champions League in midweek, travel to battle with Bournemouth.
Elsewhere in the EPL Week 16 on Sunday, the struggling Aston Villa welcome Arsenal, Liverpool entertain West Bromwich, hoping to rebound from the defeat to Newcastle in the last Premier League outing, while Tottenham and Newcastle will face-off.
Meanwhile, the leading goalscorers heading in this weekend are Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) on 14 goals, while Romelu Lukaku (Everton) and Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) each scored 10.
