Decompress from yesterday's amazing action with some less spectacular (probably) football.

First (7:30 A.M. EDT), there's the small matter of Nathaniel Chalobah and his Watford chums trying to overcome Leicester City to make it into the Championship playoff final at Wembley and the "Richest Game in Football." On Thursday, Leicester won the first leg 1-0 thanks to a late David Nugent goal so that's certainly not an insurmountable lead for Gianfranco Zola's charges.

Kicking off an hour later, the early game in the Premier League is the biggest one of the weekend: Spurs traveling to Stoke City. Tottenham need to win their remaining two matches and hope for a slip-up from Arsenal to have any hope of qualifying for next year's Champions League.

Spurs will be followed by several relegation drama match-ups before Manchester United wraps things up with an 11 A.M. EDT start of Swansea's visit to Old Trafford.
