There is no rest for the English teams, as the Premiership continues already today. It’s Week 34, and we have a new batch of exciting games, beginning already this Tuesday.
Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea
Palace plays arguably the dullest football in the league, and their matches are very boring and unattractive. They have three losses in a row, while Chelsea has all wins since the restart except against West Ham. They need to continue winning in order to keep the UCL place, which is why we go with their triumph here. Odds are 0.45.
Watford vs. Norwich
These are the two sides who are in the worst shape right now. Both have just one draw apiece when looking at all the competitions played. Norwich is hammered to the bottom of the standings, while this match presents everything for the Hornets who are one point away from the red zone. Therefore, hosts to win, at 0.61.
Arsenal vs. Leicester
Arguably the most interesting game of the round. The Gunners kept some theoretical chances of reaching the UCL spot after beating Wolves on the road, while Leicester reached a breath of fresh air after beating Crystal Palace at home, winning three points which left them in place no.3. We expect fireworks at Emirates, and over 2.5 goals are our first suggestion here. Odds are at 0.80.
Manchester City vs. Newcastle
The Citizens lost in Southampton, but to be honest they don’t have some particular motive to play those types of games. We saw their capabilities against Liverpool, and now they just play to remain in shape for the UCL challenges. On the other side, Newcastle started playing efficiently, and that is why we believe this game should see at least three goals. Odds on that are 0.38.
Sheffield Utd vs. Wolves
The match of the season for both sides. Both the Blades and the Wolves need to win because of the international stage, United to come back in the race for the UCL, and Wolves to stay in the same. Expect a hard and tactical battle, with just a few goals. As you know already, these two wides have a conservative approach in any game, let alone the one who could decide their future. Under 2.5 goals is our first choice here. Odd here are 0.50.
West Ham vs. Burnley
The Hammers are showing some signs of life, after beating Chelsea and taking one point against Newcastle. With a win here, their situation would be much much better. Burnley is near those places which are leading to Europe, but apparently, it appears that Clarets aren’t to keen about becoming international once more. Double chance home or draw is at 0.25.
Brighton vs. Liverpool
The Seagulls pretty much seem safe, with nine points more than Aston Villa with five rounds to go. One win is needed to solve all the relegation troubles, but it is hard to believe that they might get it against Liverpool. The champs are, on the other hand, relaxed, and they play without any burden. Both teams to score here is our pick, with the odds at 0.80.
Bournemouth vs. Tottenham
Both sides are horrible recently. Bournemouth has four losses since the comeback, and they allowed nine goals in the recent two matches. Tottenham apparently lost al the chances for the Champions League, and we don’t quite know what is in Mourinho’s head right now. The constant in the matches of these two sides is that there are goals, and that is why we go with over 2.5 scores, at 0.72.
Everton vs. Southampton
Ancelotti’s side looks solid, and the same could be said for the Saints. Both teams are in the middle of the standings, and play without any pressure. Something tells us that this might be a pretty interesting game, with goals on both sides. The odds for that are 0.72.
Aston Villa vs. Manchester United
There is no room for either side in this event to lose. If Villains fail to collect points, their situation will be extremely hard, and the relegation would be just behind the corner. On the other side, if United heads home without all three points, the UCL spot would be endangered. Still, we are going with Manchester’s win here, at 0.30.
