The run-in for the Premier League title and the race for the top four takes centre stage this weekend.
The current top six are in action across five games - all of which are live on Sky Sports.
Spurs look to close the gap at the top to a point with victory at West Ham on Friday, before Liverpool, the Manchester clubs and Arsenal maintain their top-four challenge across Saturday and Sunday.
An action-packed weekend culminates at Stamford Bridge where leaders Chelsea look to take a step closer to the title against Middlesbrough.
Ahead of the action, we ponder 10 questions that should be answered by the time the full-time whistles sound...
Will Gabriel Jesus be City's saviour? Manchester City v Crystal Palace - Premier League Live, Saturday, 11.30am, Sky Sports 1 HD
After back-to-back Premier League draws and an FA Cup semi-final defeat, Manchester City's season is threatening to end with a whimper. Few would have envisaged Pep Guardiola concluding his first season at City empty handed when Gabriel Jesus joined the club in January. Having ousted Sergio Aguero to score three goals in his first four top-flight outings, City looked destined to challenge for the title.
However, Manchester City have won just three Premier League games since Jesus limped off at Bournemouth in February. He scored on his return at Middlesbrough last time out and while a top-four finish is now the prize, he will fancy his chances of getting on the scoresheet against a Palace side who have not kept a clean sheet in the league against City since 1993.
Will Klopp break Saints duck? Liverpool v Southampton - Nissan Super Sunday, 12.30pm, Sky Sports 1 HD
There are few things Jurgen Klopp has yet to achieve during his tenure at Liverpool. Two final appearances in his first season. Check. Merseyside derby dominance. Check. On the brink of sealing the Reds' return to the Champions League. Check. But, as his first full season at Anfield draws to a close, Klopp is still without two things - a trophy and a Premier League victory over Southampton.
The charismatic German has failed to win any of his three league games against the Saints, despite Liverpool winning three on the spin prior to his arrival. What's more, the Saints knocked the Reds out on their way to the EFL Cup final. On the whole, fans are pleased with the job Klopp has done, however, were he to inch ever closer to a top-four finish by ending his Saints hoodoo, support would strengthen.
Normal service to resume for United? Arsenal v Manchester United - Nissan Super Sunday, 3.30pm, Sky Sports 1 HD
Cast your minds back to October 4, 2015. Second-placed Manchester United travelled to the Emirates looking for a victory to move top of the Premier League. What unfolded was arguably the lowest point of Louis van Gaal's tenure at the club as three Arsenal goals in the opening 20 minutes blew United away.
That emphatic performance was the Gunners' only win in their last 11 league games against United, and it's a result they'll be keen to replicate as they mount a late top-four charge. However, it's worth noting United haven't lost consecutive away league games against Arsenal since 2001 and, with Arsene Wenger's old adversary Jose Mourinho in the opposition dug-out, the Gunners face a tough task repeating the feat.
Chelsea to stride closer to coronation? Chelsea v Middlesbrough - Monday Night Football, 7pm, Sky Sports 1 HD
For Antonio Conte's men the hard work is almost done. Last week's potential banana skin at Everton was navigated with relative ease and now the Blues need just three more victories to secure their fifth Premier League title. And, on the face of things, Chelsea look set to stroll past relegation-threatened Boro.
The Teessiders have lost their last six to the Blues without scoring, and it's a similar tale at Stamford Bridge where they haven't scored in seven, stretching to 2001. But Boro's battling performance against Manchester City will have given them new-found hope in their battle against relegation, and Tottenham cause for optimism in the title race. With relegation looming, it's now or never for Steve Agnew's men.
Will Josh King's goalscoring run continue? Bournemouth v Stoke - Saturday, 3pm
Josh King has been in prolific form in front of goal, scoring four goals in his last five matches in the Premier League. That form has seen the 25-year-old rise to eighth in Sky Sports' Power Rankings - the only player to feature in the top 10 not playing for Chelsea or Tottenham.
The Norway international has scored 13 goals in his last 17 league appearances and has reached 10 goals in a season for the first time in his career.
Burnley to secure their top-flight status? Burnley v West Brom - Saturday, 3pm
It would take a huge swing of results for Burnley to be relegated from the Premier League. Sean Dyche's side are seven points above the relegation zone with nine points still to play for but they will not be resting easy until their top-flight status is mathematically confirmed.
Goals and results dried up for the Clarets in early April but last week's victory at Crystal Palace - their first on the road this season - stopped the rot. Follow that up with victory at Turf Moor and Premier League football for another season will be secure.
Will Hull's incredible home form continue? Hull v Sunderland - Saturday, 3pm
Marco Silva puts his unbeaten home record on the line when Sunderland visit the KCOM Stadium on Saturday. The Portuguese manager has not lost a home league game since March 2014 - a run that includes spells in charge of Estoril, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos - and he will be hoping that the streak continues as the Tigers bid to stay in the top flight.
Unbeaten in eight matches at home since Silva's arrival, Hull are two points clear of the relegation zone and a fifth straight win in front of their home fans against relegated Sunderland, who have one win from their last 10 league matches, would see them take another step towards safety.
Hornets to strengthen Mazzarri's position? Leicester v Watford - Saturday, 3pm
Once in a season-high position of seventh, six defeats in their last 10 Premier League outings have seen Watford stagnate at the season draws to a close. Despite succumbing to a piece of sheer brilliance from Emre Can, Monday's defeat to Liverpool will have left a bitter taste in the mouth, especially for boss Walter Mazzarri whose future at Vicarage Road remains in question.
While there may be little resting on the game in terms of both teams' standing in the table, the Hornets boss would argue otherwise as he bids to secure a second season with the club.
Sigurdsson to steer Swans towards safety? Swansea v Everton - Saturday, 5.30pm
Who knows where Swansea would be this season without the displays of Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Iceland international has been the spearhead of the Swans revival under Paul Clement. However, two points from safety with three games to play, there is plenty of work to be done.
Fresh from earning a point at Manchester United - where he became only the fifth player to score in three consecutive trips to Old Trafford, Sigurdsson, who has scored twice in his last four against Everton, is tasked once more with inspiring the Swans. Given his form this term it would take a brave man to bet against him rising to the occasion yet again.
Will the Hammers dash Spurs' title hopes? West Ham v Tottenham - Friday Night Football, 7pm, Sky Sports 1 HD
It has been a testing first season for West Ham at the London Stadium. Losing seven and drawing four of their first 17 league games at their new home has taken the gloss off the move to Stratford. Faced with Slaven Bilic's under-performing side, unrest has surfaced among the Hammers supporters, who still harbour fond memories of Upton Park.
But the problems experienced this term will be a distant memory if they can end Tottenham's title hopes.
