🖥 EPL Game Week 38: Match Previews
Arsenal vs Everton
The Toffees’ dramatic win from behind against Crystal Palace in the middle of the week means they will play in the First Division next season, but that wasn’t always a certainty. Arsenal’s top-four hopes are dashed after back-to-back defeats by Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle, but they should finish the season at the highest level against a quiet Everton side. However, the Gunners have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine Premier League matches.
🎰 Tip: Arsenal and BTTS win
Brentford vs Leeds
Jesse Marsh’s Leeds should take something from this game against resplendent Brentford, and hope Newcastle’s flying form against Burnley at Turf Moor continues. The Bees have won three of their last five Premier League games, and kept two clean sheets in their last two home games. The visiting peacock will try to play to get a point, whether that’s enough or not. We’ll go against the famous meerkat here and get back to the low-grade issue.
🎰 Tip: less than 2.5 goals
Brighton vs West Ham
Four of Brighton’s last five games have exceeded 2.5 goals, and each of the last two Hammers missions have produced exactly four goals. David Moyes’ men still have sixth in their sights, but they have to win here and hope Man United fall back at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. This should be a watchable competition between the Possession Team and the visiting outfit who loves to play in the break.
🎰 Tip: Over 2.5 goals
Burnley vs Newcastle
Clarett needs to match Leeds’ result at Brentford and they will be kept up due to the vastly superior goal difference. The visiting Magpies have won three of their last five games to zero, but the majority of their wins this year have come at St James’ Park. It’s bound to be a strained, tight relationship at Turf Moor with a lot at stake.
🎰 Tip: less than 2.5 goals
Chelsea vs Watford
The Blues would settle for third place with a point at Stamford Bridge, but in truth they would expect to claim all three against the unlucky Hornets. They conceded five games last time out against Leicester and will end up hiding against a sometimes inconsistent, but always fun Chelsea side.
🎰 Tip: Chelsea win both halves
Crystal Palace vs Man United
The Red Devils still have work to do to secure next season’s Europa League, and we don’t feel comfortable supporting them to get the job done at Selhurst Park. What we are comfortable doing is supporting goals. United sent in four goals at Brighton last time out while Crystal Palace lost an exciting five-goal game at Everton after taking a 2-0 lead midweek. Watch out for Wilf Zaha, who is determined to get one from the team that has been paying him.
🎰 Tip: Over 3.5 goals
Leicester vs Southampton
It’s a game known for its goals. Southampton won’t need to be reminded of their 9-0 defeat at the hands of the Foxes at St Mary’s in 2019, but, to their credit, the Saints got their immediate revenge in the pair’s upcoming Premier League encounter. The last two meetings in the first division ended in a draw, and we support this result in round 38.
🎰 Tip: Draw & BTTS
Liverpool vs wolves
Wolves have been generally sad lately, losing four times and not winning any of their last six Premier League matches. They could even be knocked out in eighth place by Leicester, if the Foxes win and fail to do so at Anfield. Liverpool’s pursuit of the title went to the last day and they will be crowned champions if they win and Manchester City fail to beat Aston Villa. We support them, at least, to bring up their side of the bargain.
🎰 Tip: Liverpool beat nothing
Manchester City vs Aston Villa
Every time City have dropped points this season, a win has followed, which would be ominous information for Liverpool fans. Anfield legend Steven Gerrard will have an Aston Villa hat with the goal of preventing Pep Guardiola’s team from winning a fourth title in five seasons, but he will do so in vain. Manchester City will be crowned champions of England at around 7 pm Cairo time on Sunday, and they will do so by just one point.
🎰 Tip: City win in the two halves
Norwich vs Tottenham
Spurs’ mission is simple; A win over Norwich City is already relegated and will guarantee the 2022-23 UEFA Champions League. Son-heung Min has racked up four in the last four EPL, and he’s motivated to shine again here. Tracking Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot race with just one goal, the Liverpool Egyptian star is unlikely to make an appearance this weekend after sustaining an injury in the FA Cup Final. Should that happen, Son would claim Godin’s boot on his own with two goals at Carrow Road.
🎰 Tip: Son-heung Min to score two goals
Enjoy the weekend and good luck with your bets!
