A pair of Top Seven tilts finish the Premier League weekend at 11:30 a.m. ET Sunday.

One of the matches, however, carries more significance in terms of what it means to the hosts.

Arsenal will host Burnley in Arsene Wenger‘s final home match as the Gunners’ manager (Watch live on CNBC and online via

“I try to focus on what’s most important, to win the game,” Wenger said “Over the years I’ve learned to disconnect from my emotions. Today maybe it will be a bit more difficult.”

Arsenal won’t have Mesut Ozil, and Burnley is without striker Chris Wood.


Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Chambers, Mavropanos, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Aubameyang, Lacazette. Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Mustafi, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Ramsey, Welbeck.

Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Ward, Lennon, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Gudmundsson, Barnes. Subs: Heaton, Taylor, Marney, Vokes, Nkoudou, Wells, Bardsley.

There are massive Top Four implications in the other kickoff, where Chelsea looks to pull within three points of Liverpool with a win at Stamford Bridge (Watch live on NBCSN and online via

It looks like Trent Alexander-Arnold will slide into the midfield as Jordan Henderson gets a rest for Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds.

Lose and feel a gulf between your club and your ambitions: This is the daunting early task for Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday (Watch live, 8:30 a.m. ET on CNBC and online via

[ LIVE: Chelsea vs. Arsenal ]

Mesut Ozil is out for Arsenal, while Alexis Sanchez starts on the bench. For Chelsea, there are the usual suspects with Willian holding his spot ahead of Eden Hazard.

Chelsea entered the season looking to defend its Premier League title while advancing deep into the UEFA Champions League. The Blues took their first step toward the latter on Tuesday with a home destruction of Qarabag, but go into Sunday’s match knowing a loss to Arsenal will have it more than a single result behind Manchester City and possibly Manchester United.

As for the Gunners, their poor start to the campaign has the North Londoners seven points back of City at the start of the day. The 12th place Gunners have two less days rest than Chelsea thanks to the Europa League, and are on the road with a minus-1 goal differential.


Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Willian, Morata, PedroSubs: Caballero, Christensen, Rudiger, Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Hazard, Batshuayi.

Arsenal: Cech, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Welbeck; Lacazette. Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Alexis, Walcott, Giroud.
