The penultimate weekend of the Premier League season takes place this coming weekend. The fixtures have been rearranged slightly so that all teams in the top-flight can play at least once with fans in attendance as rules on spectators change on Monday, 17th May. These are the games that you can bet on with BetXChange this weekend.
Newcastle United vs Manchester City
The newly crowned Premier League champions are in action on Friday evening, as they travel to Newcastle United. Manchester City will be looking to build momentum ahead of the Champions League final, and we fully expect them to get the win at St James’ Park, despite the number of anticipated changes that Pep Guardiola will make.
Burnley vs Leeds United
Burnley ensured their survival in the Premier League with a win over Fulham last weekend. Leeds United have been in decent form, as they have lost just once in six. Leeds are hot on the heels of Arsenal, and could move into ninth with a win this weekend. We expect them to get the win that they need.
Southampton vs Fulham
Fulham’s relegation back to the Championship was confirmed with defeat against Burnley on Monday evening. Southampton showed signs that they were back to their best against Crystal Palace, as they picked up a 3-1 win. The return to form of Danny Ings could be crucial for the Saints, and the Englishman will likely be back among the goals against the struggling Cottagers.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham United
Brighton will be without Lewis Dunk and Neal Maupay, who were both sent off in the defeat against Wolves last weekend. West Ham’s recent form hasn’t been strong, as they have lost three in four. However, the absences to key Brighton players means that the Hammers should be good value to end that disappointing run.
Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa
Crystal Palace have lost four five, while Aston Villa have lost twice in the same run of games. Villa will be keen to end the season well as they have performed better in their second season back in the Premier League. This could be an entertaining game, but we fancy that the Villa will make it two wins from three.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolves
Tottenham’s Champions League hopes are effectively over, but Europa League qualification could be within their reach. Wolves claimed a decent home win last time out, as Morgan Gibbs-White scored the winner in the final minute. The side from the West Midlands have won two from five against Spurs since their return to the league. We wouldn’t rule out a victory on the road for Wolves in this fixture.
West Brom vs Liverpool
Like Fulham, West Brom will also be returning to the Championship after a season in the Premier League. Despite a decent showing, they were beaten by Arsenal last weekend. Liverpool still have an outside chance of the top-four. It looks unlikely that they will finish in that position, but they will win this game.
Everton vs Sheffield United
Everton could still finish in a European position this term. Sheffield United will be the visitors this weekend, but they have won once in six league games. The Toffees should have more than enough to build on their win against West Ham last weekend with another success against the Blades.
