Manchester City are one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table after the Reds could draw 0-0 with Everton, and both teams have winning games in the 30th week:

The cities host Watford at the Etihad Stadium and Liverpool hosts Burnley at Anfield.

For his part, Tottenham Hotspur has been drawn into the top four race and will look for a first-ever four-time championship victory when he visited Southampton on Saturday.

Here is the schedule of week 30, as well as the scoring forecasts for each match:

Since the 2011-12 season, the Premier League race has not been so close at this point of the season.

In this campaign, it was Manchester United who led City by one point after 29 matches.

The good news for the fans of Liverpool is that City has filled the deficit to finally win the title against the goals.

Unfortunately for the Merseyside team, they are not on the side of momentum:

At just four wins in 2019, Liverpool lost its seven-point lead over City at the end of 2018.

City, meanwhile, has won nine of his last 10 league games. And the visit of Watford should not pose a huge threat on Saturday.

The Hornets have a great season and have won three of their last four league games.

But they did not score in the top six spots of the season, beating Arsenal 2-0, Tottenham 2-1 and, more recently, Liverpool 5-0.

City has not been prolific lately, scoring only two goals in its last three games, all competitions, but they have the firepower needed to unveil Watford's defense as Liverpool did.

If Pep Guardiola's team manages to score the three points at Etihad Stadium, it will put more pressure on Liverpool because his lead at the top would extend to four points.

This will force Jurgen Klopp's men to beat Burnley on Sunday to reduce the gap to a point.

Until recently, the Clarets were enjoying a fantastic year in 2019. They have remained unbeaten for eight games following their loss to Everton in Boxing Day, before losing 2-0 to Newcastle United last week.

Another home defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday was another blow, and they could hardly have asked for a tougher challenge than a trip to Anfield.

The intrigue of the Premier League this season is not only at the top of the table, there is a fierce battle for the top four.

Two of the teams involved, Arsenal and Manchester United, face Sunday at the Emirates Stadium. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team is seeking to position itself further on the UEFA Champions League qualifying places.

The matches between United and Arsenal were decisive for the title it was not long ago, and the fact that only one place for the Champions League is at stake this time is an indication of the struggles recent two clubs.

But the giants of the Premier League have recently indicated that they could soon be title contenders, including United, who has taken 32 points out of a possible 36 since the takeover of Solskjaer:

Under the Norwegian, United defeated Arsenal 3-1 at Emirates in the FA Cup in January.

The Reds were dominant on that occasion, but Sunday's showdown will be tighter.

United is undergoing a serious injury crisis and Arsenal seems to have come a long way in recent times, offering a great performance to Tottenham in a match that they had the misfortune of 1-1.
