Spurs v Bournemouth
For the second week running Spurs play at White Hart Lane in the early game on Saturday, giving them the chance to close the gap to Chelsea to 4 points before Conte’s men face Man United on Sunday. Spurs go into this game on their best ever run of home form in the Premier League. Alli, Eriksen and Son continued their superb form against Watford last time out and with the return of talisman Harry Kane for this game against one of the worst defenses in the league they should be comfortable winners.
Bournemouth continue to concede goals at an alarming rate and have won only twice in 2017. Those 2 wins brought the Cherries up to 35 points however so 1 more win should be enough to secure their Premier League status for another season which will suit Eddie Howe just fine.
Harry Kane to score 2 or more 3/1
Palace v Leicester
Big Sam said after his side’s impressive 3-0 victory over Arsenal that he believes 3 more points will see Palace safe. With his front 3 of Zaha, Townsend and Benteke in sparkling form of late he’ll be hoping to pick those 3 points up here so he can start to plan ripping up the dance floor in Marbella come the close season.
Leicester finally sampled defeat under Craig Shakespeare away to Everton last time. With their Premier League safety now established and the 2nd leg of their Champions League tie against Athletico Madrid coming up next week, you’d have to expect them to rest a few players here and who can begrudge them that.
Palace and both teams to score 13/5
Everton v Burnley
Everton continued their strong home form beating Leicester 4-2 last Sunday. Most Toffees fans will be happy with a 7th place finish this season, which guarantees European Football. The contract situations of Lukaku and Barkley have been heavily debated lately and with a large transfer kitty promised this summer by new owner Moshe, expect a busy summer for the blue half of Merseysside and a push for the top four next time round.
Burnley are about as useful as a chocolate teapot away from Turf Moor and it’s highly unlikely that that will change this weekend.
Gelled-down-pubes-head Ross Barkley is bound to score here I reckon after being splashed all over the internet getting dropped like a toilet seat at a Liverpool cocktail bar recently and then getting some disgracefully out of order stick from the dickhead Editor of the Sun today. As if the Sun wasn’t already unpopular enough on Merseyside!
Barkley score anytime 9/4
Stoke City v Hull
Stoke haven’t won in 5 and really need to give their fans a good performance and result. For all the talk of the Potters having so many Champions League winners in their squad and having improved their style of play under Mark Hughes they are still struggling to progress much in terms of their League position since the magic hat man Tony Pulis’ era. It’s understandable really considering they can’t really compete financially with 7 or 8 of the Premier League’s other teams.
I’m a massive fan of Marco Silva and he deserves massive credit for pulling the Tigers out of the drop zone. However, as good as Hull’s home form has been since he took over, their away form has been shocking with the Portuguese drawing 2 and losing 5 since his arrival in England. Upcoming home games against Watford and Sunderland will be where the Tigers will be looking to pick up the points needed to beat the drop.
Sunderland v West Ham
Sunderland are shit and will be playing in the Championship next season, nothing else to say really.
West Ham pretty much guaranteed their own safety last week with a narrow 1-0 at home to Swansea. I see Slav’s men pouring even more misery on the Mackems here.
West Ham 11/8
Watford v Swansea
Watford have been described as a club that have shook the system of late. Given their propensity for sacking managers along with buying and selling huge amounts of players every summer but still managing to retain their Premier League status at a relative canter.
Reports of a fall out between manager Walter Mazzeri and skipper Troy Deeney are not good news for the Hornets however as Deeney, despite not being the most naturally gifted footballer, is a great leader and seems to be the gel that keeps this merry band of nomads and misfits together. Luckily for Deeney he won’t have to put up with Mazzeri for long as he’ll more than likely get the chop come the end of the season.
Things have suddenly started to go pear shaped for Paul Clement after such a promising start to his managerial career in South Wales. Every game is a must win now for the Swans with them currently sitting in the drop zone, 2 points from safety. Watford are a tough nut to crack at home but the Swans will feel more confident with Llorente coming back into the team.
Sigurdson score anytime 9/4
Southampton v Man City
The Saints are back into the top half of the table after successive victories over Palace and West Brom. A top half finish and a trip to Wembley for the EFL cup final will represent another solid season for the south coast outfit. They will miss Oriel Romeu through suspension here and although centre back pairing Maya Yoshida and Jake Stephens have done well since the sale of Fonte and injury to Van Dijk, City’s pace and precision up front may well be too much for them.
City continue to look great going forward but shocking defensively. A win here would set them up nicely for their next game at home against Man United. A game that if they win will completely kill United’s chances of making the Top Four and consolidate their own.
Man City and over 2.5 goals 2/1
West Brom v Liverpool
West Brom made me cry last weekend. Their 1-0 home loss against Southampton was the only losing leg in a €450 6 team acca, the absolute shitbags. It’s been highlighted recently that historically Tony Pulis’ teams tend to turn off once they reach the hallowed 40 point mark. Considering the Baggies have won only once in their last 6 games it’s hard to argue with that really.
Jurgen Klopp nearly broke the internet last Saturday when he left Firmino and Couthinho out of his starting 11, only for the 2 Brazilians to come off the bench and win the game for the Reds. They remain a strange team Liverpool, if their last 6 games were against the other teams in the top 7 you’d back them to easily make the top four. Liverpool however face teams in the middle or bottom of the table the run so they may just struggle, which is weird, really weird.
Man United v Chelsea
It was like Ground Hog day for Man United last night in the Europa League against Anderlecht. They dominated the game and had enough chances to get the second goal and kill the game but didn’t take them. They then conceded a equaliser against the run of play. This exact scenario has played out over and over for Jose’s United this season and it will be interesting to see how his attacking players react to another public dressing down in their manager’s post match interviews.
Jose has lost both games against his former side Chelsea this season and make no mistake he would love and I mean absolutely love to get a result here to put a spanner in Chelsea’s run to the title.
Chelsea continue to look champions elect although there are slight chinks beginning to show in their armour. Not keeping a clean sheet since Jan 22nd and the poor form of Diego Costa mainly, but that really is nit picking. They should still win the league however and deservedly so.
We’ve all seen the gags about Jose being an Artist as he loves to draw, well expect him to draw his favourite picture here.
Result 1-1, 5/1
Middlesborough v Arsenal
Middlesborough are going down but they weren’t always this painfully uninspiring and boring, just click here to reminisce about when the Boro where actually one of the Premier Leagues great entertainers.
Arsenal are an absolute car crash. If Wenger signs a new deal and more importantly the board give him one they are all delusional and extremely arrogant as it’s obvious they are a team and club in disarray. It’s got the stage so many Arsenal fans have so much invested in ” Wenger Out ” that they probably want them to continue to lose to force him out. Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV will be living in a gold plated mansion if their current form continues.
Red Card in game 9/4
