Premier League fixtures today - your guide to Saturday's games

There's a delightful helping of Premier League action to look forward to this Saturday, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all in action.

The absence of the usual 12:30 (GMT) fixture is made up for with a rather sizeable collection of 15:00 games before the day's action wraps up with one evening kick-off.

Here's everything you need to know about Saturday's Premier League games and how to follow along.

  • Location: London, England
  • Stadium: Gtech Community Stadium
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: Jarred Gillett
  • VAR: Michael Salisbury

Brentford take on Chelsea in the west London derby and the pick of Saturday's 15:00 fixtures.

Both sides are in desperate need of a win to ease their respective pressures, with the Bees now in a relegation dogfight and Mauricio Pochettino questioned over his suitability to continue leading the Blues.

The best omen for Chelsea is that the home side has never won this fixture since Brentford's 2021 promotion to the top flight, while the Bees have not scored a home goal against their neighbours from SW6 in that time.

Everton vs West Ham

  • Location: Liverpool, England
  • Stadium: Goodison Park
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: Craig Pawson
  • VAR: Tony Harrington

David Moyes returns to Goodison Park on Saturday as his West Ham side travel to Everton.

The Toffees have been handed some hope in their fight against relegation after being handed back four points from their initial ten-point deduction earlier this season, though they are in danger of being hit with another penalty before the season is out.

After pressure mounted recently, Moyes bought himself a bit more time and goodwill with a 4-2 win at home to Brentford on Monday night, with Jarrod Bowen grabbing a hat-trick and firing his way back into the Golden Boot race.

Fulham vs Brighton

  • Stadium: Craven Cottage
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: Simon Hooper
  • VAR: Chris Kavanagh

Fulham battle Brighton in a game for the mid-table purists out there.

Marco Silva and Roberto De Zerbi don't particularly like to compromise on their principles. The former joined the latter in earning a win at Manchester United this season due to these attacking instincts last week.

While the Seagulls sit a respectable seventh in the table and are on course for another European finish, they've found it hard to string wins together of late and speculation has continued to mount regarding De Zerbi, who has been linked with Barcelona and Liverpool.

Newcastle vs Wolves

  • Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England
  • Stadium: St James' Park
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: Tim Robinson
  • VAR: David Coote

Wolves have managed to fight their way into the battle for a European spot, but they face another test of their credentials with a trip to Newcastle.

Gary O'Neil's side have actually managed to climb above Saturday's hosts in the standings, while they have also been handed a much more favourable draw in the FA Cup sixth round - Wolves host Coventry but Newcastle travel to Manchester City.

The Magpies are at risk of finishing Saturday in the bottom half of the Premier League table. Will Eddie Howe pay the price if that happens?

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool

  • Location: Nottingham, England
  • Stadium: City Ground
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: Paul Tierney
  • VAR: Stuart Attwell

Liverpool's quest for a 20th English title continues at Nottingham Forest this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp has received a lot of love for his use of academy players of late, most notably in last Sunday's Carabao Cup triumph against Chelsea, but he should be able to call on some of his more senior players this time around with Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szoboszlai both in line returns. Mohamed Salah is still a week or so away from making his own comeback, however.

Forest are continuing to sweat over a potential points deduction and their four-point cushion over Luton is looking rather precarious.

Tottenham vs Crystal Palace

  • Location: London, England
  • Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 15:00 GMT / 10:00 ET / 07:00 PT
  • Referee: John Brooks
  • VAR: Rob Jones

Tottenham can close the gap on fourth-place Aston Villa back to two points with a win against Crystal Palace in the last of Saturday's 15:00 kick-offs.

Spurs lost significant ground in the race for a Champions League place last time out with a surprise home defeat to Wolves, but Ange Postecoglou's men have had two weeks to lick their wounds and regroup themselves.

In the red-and-blue corner, Palace began life under Oliver Glasner with a 3-0 win at home to Burnley. The Austrian will be making his second visit to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as a manager having lost 3-2 in a Champions League clash with his Eintracht Frankfurt side last season.

Luton vs Aston Villa

  • Location: Luton, England
  • Stadium: Kenilworth Road
  • Date: Saturday 2 March
  • Kick-off Time: 17:30 GMT / 12:30 ET / 09:30 PT
  • Referee: Michael Oliver
  • VAR: Peter Bankes

If Tottenham slip up, then Aston Villa will be presented with a huge chance to nail down their place in the top four when they take on Luton.

The Hatters were on the wrong end of a 6-2 mauling from Manchester City in midweek, and a nightmare run of fixtures continues with the visit of Villa.

Luck's probably got to turn for Luton at some point having been narrowly edged out in so many competitive home games against the big boys this season.
