WEEKEND WATCH GUIDE
Premier League: Arsenal at West Brom, 7:30 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. Arsenal has some serious ground to make up in the race for the top four. Five points separate the Gunners from Liverpool, in fourth, though Arsenal has two games in hand. The first of these is with West Brom and manager Tony Pulis, who seems to delight in having his team thwart Arsene Wenger’s men.
Premier League: Southampton at Tottenham, 9:15 a.m. Sunday, NBCSN. Tottenham’s post-Harry Kane crunch begins this week; the injured striker will be out at least a month. It’s a blow for the Spurs, as the team is in second place in the Premier League — a height it had never reached. Southampton, though, is always dangerous.
La Liga: Sevilla at Atlético Madrid, 11 a.m. Sunday, beIN Sports. Sevilla’s dreams of winning the Champions League have been quashed, and its dreams of challenging for the Spanish title appear to be slipping away as well. Now the goal is to stay ahead of fourth-place Atlético, which has struggled domestically this season. Five points separate the two; Sevilla is hoping to keep the cushion.
MLS: New York at Seattle, 6 p.m. Sunday, FS1. It’s been a rough start for the Sounders, last year’s MLS Cup champions. Seattle lost its opener to Houston, then needed a near-miracle comeback to get a draw against Montreal. Now it plays its first game at home in 2017, with New York — off to a perfect start — in town. Can Seattle right the ship?
