As if fighting for their Champions League hopes were not enough, Everton’s match at Goodison Park were have even more drama Sunday thanks to the homecoming of their former manager.
David Moyes and his seventh-place Manchester United squad head to Merseyside to face fifth-place Everton, who trail Arsenal by just one point in the race for the English Premier League’s final Champions League spot. While Everton’s Champions League fight took a hit during the week with a shocking loss to Crystal Palace, Manchester United have kept their Europa League hopes alive with back-to-back wins in league play.
The EPL day kicks off with a huge match in Norwich as the relegation-fighting Canaries host first-place Liverpool, who can move five points ahead in the title race with a road victory. With Chelsea’s stunning loss to last-place Sunderland on Saturday, Norwich sit just three points from the bottom of the EPL heading into Sunday’s clash at Carrow Road.
In Spain, Barcelona will need all three points from their home meeting with fourth-place Athletic Bilbao if they are to stay alive in the three-team race for La Liga’s title. Athletic Bilbao gave Barcelona their first league loss of the season back in December, but Barcelona have fallen hard since then, suffering three straight losses across all competitions heading into today’s matchup at Camp Nou.
