Leicester – Everton: Both teams to score (8/11)
Everton have been atrocious away from home this season, only managing two points from their last fourteen on the road in the league. They did however manage to score on their recent travels and against the most stubborn defences; West Ham and Burnley. They will hope that Leicester are still hurting from their recent exit from the Conference League, desperate for points to ensure they avoid relegation. Only once from their last ten at home in the league have the foxes not scored, so both teams scoring seems quite likely.
I Like Our Chances
Norwich – West Ham: West Ham to win (4/5)
Relegation confirmed for the Canaries, I expect they’ll lack the hunger to stop a West Ham side who are still fighting to remain in the Europa league places.
Brighton – Manchester United: Brighton draw no bet (19/20)
United have lost their last four on their travels, conceding a total twelve. Brighton have been on a run that saw them beat both Arsenal and Spurs in London and most recently win convincingly at Wolves; which few can manage. The visitors don’t have much to play for and seemingly have signed off now, already thinking about next season. I can’t expect they’ll have the fight in them to be able to hurt an organised side like Brighton.
Liverpool – Tottenham: Liverpool to win and both teams to score (9/5)
Because this game will be played before their closest rivals play, this will be a chance for both to overtake the side ahead of them and put pressure on them.
Whilst Liverpool are chasing Manchester City in first, Spurs are trying to take that last Champions League place from bitter rivals Arsenal. With this in mind, I anticipate an open game with both teams attacking from the first whistle. I expect Liverpool to be too strong at home and maintain their strong incredible run.
Arsenal – Leeds: Arsenal to win and both teams to score (19/10)
If Liverpool beat Spurs as I predict, Arsenal will be going into this game full of confidence knowing a win could pull them away from the chasers and put them one step away from securing Champions League football for next season. That will be easier said than done though because Leeds also have a lot to play for. Leeds have only suffered one defeat from their last six and even that was against the league leaders. I feel home advantage may be the key to helping the Gunners edge this one.
