2020/2021 EPL Week 32 Preview

It’s a stretched out edition of the Premier League this week with several matches pushed to midweek to accommodate the FA Cup Semi Finals at Wembley.

Matchweek 32 begins with a clash between two sides on the outside of the top four looking for a way to break back into it.

The final game features West Brom looking to continue their quest for an unlikely Premier League survival when they take on Leicester.

Read on and find our best bets for every match below.

Everton Vs Tottenham

Saturday 17 April, 5:00am, Goodison Park

Everton 2 – Tottenham 2

The Toffee’s winless run reached five matches in all competitions with their limp 0-0 draw against Brighton and there are real concerns with an attack that has scored just two goals in that run.

It has been seven matches since they scored more than one goal in a fixture however Tottenham’s defence has been far from stout lately.

They have given up two or more goals in four of their last five martches and if Everton is going to get their scoring touch back, this is the fixture to do it.

Not only that but Tottenham’s strike force is still very potent with Harry Kane and Son scoring two goals each over their last four Premier League matches.

Head to head there is not enough going for either team to feel confident about backing them in their current state.

Instead I’m landing on backing a few goals to be scored here with a bit of value on three or more.

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.95

Newcastle Vs West Ham

Saturday 17 April, 9:30pm, St James’ Park

Newcastle 3 – West Ham 2

West Ham continues to be one of the best bets in all of Europe as the Irons continue their push for a Champions League berth.

They have picked up 16 of their last 24 available points and will need to continue that strong run of form to hold off the chasing pack.

Newcastle is coming off its first win in over a month and sits six points clear of the drop zone heading into this match.

Bottom line here, with the form West Ham is in, getting them at $2 to win is akin to robbery but I’m chasing some value in this one.

They have scored three goals in each of their last three matches but have been quite vulnerable defensively.

Chances are they will find a way to concede but with their lynchpin loanee Jesse Lingaard they should have no trouble outscoring Newcastle.

Back West Ham to Win and Over 2.5 Goals @ $3.25

Wolves Vs Sheffield United

Sunday 18 April, 5:15am, Molineux Stadium

Wolves 1 – Sheffield United 0

There are plenty of matches to look forward to this weekend and this is definitely not one of them.

If you are staying up for the Chelsea-Manchester City FA Cup Semi Final, head to bed afterwards and catch up on this with the three minute highlight package.

Wolves broke their winless run almost by accident last week while Sheffield continues its march towards being crowned one of the Premier League’s worst ever sides.

In the event of Newcastle earning at least a point from its clash with West Ham, Sheffield could be relegated with a loss here.

With 25 defeats from 31 matches so far, chances are the second half of that equation is almost assured.

It might not be the prettiest game but chances are Wolves will find a way to score a goal or two and come away with a win.

Even one goal will likely be enough.

Back Wolves to Win and Under 3.5 Goals @ $2.10

Arsenal Vs Fulham

Sunday 18 April, 10:30pm, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 1 – Fulham 1

Arsenal were good value in their comfortable 3-0 win over Sheffield United last week and catch another break this weekend with a Fulham side currently riding a four match losing run.

It is especially helpful with Mikel Arteta likely to rotate some of his squad for this fixture considering they will be coming off a Europa League tie with Slavia Prague Friday morning.

With that fixture still very much in the balance, we should see a few of Arsenal’s fringe players lead by Alex Lacazette.

It’s fair to say that a lot of futures are still up in the air at the Emirates so the players that do get the nod should feel motivated enough to get the job done here.

Back Arsenal to Win @ $1.75

Manchester United Vs Burnley

Monday 19 April, 1:00am, Old Trafford

Manchester United 3 – Burnley 1

Manchester United should and probably will this game, there’s a reason the market has them at $1.33 in the result market.

This should provide an excellent chance for their backline to get some confidence as they chase their first domestic clean sheet in over a month.

Burnley has scored in its last five matches but still has the Premier League’s third worst attack.

As they prepare for the run home they still need a few points to really feel safe but this is not one they would be expecting a whole lot from.

I’ll back a fairly routine United victory.

Back Manchester United to Win to Nil @ $2.15

Leeds Vs Liverpool

Tuesday 20 April, 5:00am, Elland Road

Leeds 1 – Liverpool 1

When these teams met on the opening weekend it was one of the more memorable fixtures of the season with Liverpool eventually claiming a wild 4-3 win.

Quite a bit has changed for both clubs since then with Liverpool going through a season from hell in terms of injuries while Leeds have somewhat curbed their reckless, attack at all costs mentality.

Domestically they both have a lot to gain from this match with each side riding a three match Premier League winning streak.

With some key figures starting to get healthy again, Liverpool is starting to return to form and I give them every chance to come away with a win here.

It won’t come easy however with Leeds full of confidence after stunning Manchester City last weekend.

Back Liverpool to Win and Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.25

Chelsea Vs Brighton And Hove Albion

Wednesday 21 April, 5:00am, Stamford Bridge

Chelsea 0 – Brighton 0

Fresh off their most recent attempt to destroy football in Europe (the first being giving Jose Mourinho a second chance), Chelsea hosts Brighton after reaching the FA Cup Final for the fourth time in five years.

Not that their push for the top four would mean a whole lot given their likely expulsion from next season’s Champions League but a victory over Brighton would move them above West Ham on the Premier League table.

We know what to expect from the Blues under Thomas Tuchel and in spite of the mismatch between the two teams, this probably will not end in a blowout.

Knowing they still have bigger fish to fry, Chelsea will go out to get all three points without too much extra exertion instead of looking for one of those goal difference boosting wins.

Back Chelsea to Win and Under 3.5 Goals @ $2.15

Tottenham Vs Southampton

Thursday 22 April, 3:00am, Tottenham Stadium

Tottenham 2 – Southampton 1

Somewhat lost in the chaos of this week is the decision of Spurs to dismiss Jose Mourinho following the side’s 2-2 draw with Everton.

Given the madness that has unfolded since that fixture it would be somewhat fitting for Spurs to somehow drop points against one of the worst performing sides in England right now, all while trying to establish that they are one of the biggest clubs in the game.

With Harry Kane out injured, it puts an awful lot of pressure on a Spurs forward line that has been very hit and miss all season.

Son Heung-Min scored four when these sides met in September (all of which were assisted by Kane) and as long as Ryan Mason gives him room to function, I like his chances to hand the Saints another defeat.

Back Son to Score and Tottenham to Win @ $2.80

Aston Villa Vs Manchester City

Thursday 22 April, 5:15am, Villa Park

Aston Villa 1 – Manchester City 2

City’s domestic form has taken a bit of a blow with back to back defeats in the Premier League and FA Cup bookending progression in the Champions League.

The job is not done in the Premier League with Manchester United closing the gap to eight points and Pep Guardiola will want to take some momentum into the Carabao Cup Final.

Villa has not provided a whole lot of competition for City in the Premier League with seven of the last eight going City’s way by a multiple goal margin.

The bounce back factor is what swings this tip for me and I’ll take City to win comfortably.

Back Manchester City to Win -1 Goal @ $2.00

Leicester Vs West Bromwich Albion

Friday 23 April, 5:00am, King Power Stadium

Leicester 3 – West Brom 0

West Brom is still nine points off Premier League safety but after back to back wins, they are daring to dream of a miracle survival.

Both victories have come in impressive fashion with a 5-2 win at Stamford Bridge preceding an impressive 3-0 win over West Brom.

The big question for this match revolves around whether or not Leicester will opt to rotate or experience some sort of FA Cup hangover after reaching their first final since 1969.

Should they put out an altered lineup then there is every chance West Brom could find a way to pinch a point, especially with their recent form in front of goal.

Leicester is more than capable of holding its own in a high scoring encounter and I’ll back them to get the job done as they push for Champions League football next season.

Back Leicester to Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.55


2019/2020

And there it is, Liverpool are champions of the English Premier League for the first time in the competition’s history and the champions of England for the 19th time.

That means that on Friday morning, the team they took over the mantle of champions from, Manchester City, will have to form a guard of honour for them at the Etihad Stadium before their match.

There is still plenty on the line in the final seven rounds of the Premier League season, with the race for the top four still very much up for grabs, as is the relegation battle with plenty of teams looking over their shoulders.

With the FA Cup also taking place this weekend, our preview for Matchweek 32 will be a little bit different, with the early games ready now and the rest being previewed after the quarter finals take place.

Aston Villa Vs Wolverhampton

Saturday 27 June, 9:30pm, Villa Park

Aston Villa 0 – Wolves 1

We’ve got two teams heading in opposite directions to kick off the weekend as Wolves look to continue their blistering form.

Villa on the other hand have picked up a pair of draws since the restart of play, but that pace won’t be enough to avoid the drop.

There’s no need to get too complicated finding a play for this one, it’s a great price on Wolves considering the gulf between these sides.

Back Wolves to Win @ $1.80

Watford Vs Southampton

Monday 29 June, 1:30am, Vicarage Road

Watford 1 – Southampton 3

Which version of Southampton will turn up for this match?

If it’s the one that blasted Norwich they should have no trouble against a Watford team that desperately needs a victory but found itself on the wrong end of the stats and scoreboard against Burnley.

Of course they were diabolical against a vulnerable Arsenal team which showed why they are mired in the bottom half of the table.

Watford has desperation on their side and that could prove to be a powerful motivator, so the draw looks to be the play.

Back the Draw @ $3.25

Crystal Palace Vs Burnley

Tuesday 30 June, 5:00am, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 0 – Burnley 1

Both of these clubs find themselves with not a lot on the line in this match, finding themselves safe from relegation but just out of reach of a European placing.

Palace had their winning run brought to a screeching halt by Liverpool last week and all things being equal, should be considered the better team here, but the absence of Wilfried Zaha really does reduce the confidence backing them to win.

Burnley is far from well placed themselves at the moment, just scraping by Watford in their last outing and it’s hard to have any sort of confidence backing them to do a whole lot of anything either.

With both teams very limited in attack and with a sense of security that they will be playing Premier League football next season, this one might just have them going through the motions.

Back Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.45

Brighton And Hove Albion Vs Manchester United

Wednesday 1st July, 5:15am, Amex Stadium

Brighton 0 – Manchester United 3

Yet to lose since the resumption of the Premier League, Brighton will look to catch Manchester United still celebrating their progression to the FA Cup semi-finals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side needed 120 minutes to get by relegation threatened Norwich on Saturday and if they turn in a similar performance, this combative Brighton team could give them a real scare.

It’s hard to discount the run United is on at the moment though, while they have only had one really strong performance since the resumption of play, you have to like their ability to capitalise on the momentum they will bring into this one.

Back Manchester United to Win @ $1.70

Bournemouth Vs Newcastle

Thursday 2 July, 3:00am, Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth 1 – Newcastle 4

To their credit, Newcastle have massively surpassed expectations for them this season, sitting 12 points above the relegation zone with seven matches to play.

Above all else they have managed to take care of business against sides that have not turned up to play them, including an impressive 3-0 win over Sheffield United.

Bournemouth is in dire straits at the moment and really should be backed against at any cost, especially when their opponent is at their current price.

Back Newcastle to Win @ $3.20

Arsenal Vs Norwich

Thursday 2 July, 3:00am, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal 4 – Norwich 0

Arsenal hosting the last placed team in the Premier League seems like a recipe for disaster (or laughter if you’re not a Gunners fan).

Norwich acquitted themselves quite well against United on the weekend, but you have to wonder how they can back up after such a draining clash.

Mikel Arteta’s side will also be backing up from a tough FA Cup encounter but at least have the momentum of a late winner from Dani Ceballos.

Arsenal should win but appear to be way under the odds here and any sort of extra condition on them winning just makes it too big of a risk so I’ll stay out of this game.

NO BET

Everton Vs Leicester

Thursday 2 July, 3:00am, Goodison Park

Everton 2 – Leicester 1

With the final match of this round carrying a lot less weight than it did a week ago, this one suddenly moves up to the match of the round status.

Everton has taken four points from their two matches back and are yet to concede a goal while Leicester has scored just once in their three matches since the resumption of play.

This has all the makings of a first goal wins match and there’s decent value on a defensive affair.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $1.73

West Ham Vs Chelsea

Thursday 2 July, 5:15am, London Stadium

West Ham 3 – Chelsea 2

Chelsea’s run to the top four continues this weekend with a clash against a horrendously out of form West Ham side.

After seeing off Leicester in the FA Cup, Frank Lampard’s side should have no trouble taking care of an opponent whose last goal came on March 1.

This one could get ugly and there’s value to be had all over the shop.

Back Chelsea Halftime/Fulltime @ $2.45

Sheffield United Vs Tottenham

Friday 3 July, 3:00am, Brammall Lane

Sheffield United 3 – Tottenham 1

There’s plenty on the line for both clubs as any dropped points in this fixture likely ends the slim chance of a Europa League finish.

Sheffield and Spurs sit five and four points behind sixth place Manchester United respectively and with them likely to take all three points this weekend, it could be curtains for the continental dreams.

Tottenham has the form and the freshness to really take on this match and while Sheffield will look to batter their forward line, there’s a gap in class that is just too big for the home side to bridge.

Back Tottenham to Win @ $1.95

Manchester City Vs Liverpool

Friday 3 July, 5:15am, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 4 – Liverpool 0

Even with the Premier League title secured, this match means more to Liverpool than it does to City, with the home team locked into second spot.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will be chasing any number of records throughout the remaining seven matches but it’s hard to not predict a slight drop off in intensity, especially if the celebrations end just before kickoff.

I’m happy to steer clear of this one.

NO BET


2018/2019

One way to make up for missing a weekend of Premier League action is to have a lot of games in the first few days back and Week 32 of the season delivers with 15 games on the cards thanks to a few rescheduled clashes.

There’s 10 games from Week 32, a Week 27 clash, a Week 31 game and three Round 33 matches between now and Thursday morning when we turn the page to Week 33, confused yet?

Don’t be just enjoy the smorgasbord of football to come.

Check out our previews, predictions and same game multis for every game coming up in the next week.

Fulham Vs Manchester City

Saturday 30 March, 11:30pm, Craven Cottage

Fulham 0 – Manchester City 2

After being out of Premier League action in Week 31 due to an FA Cup Quarter Final, City surrendered top spot to Liverpool but have a chance to jump straight back up here.

They take on a Fulham side 13 points off safety and could push them closer to a return to the Championship if they do the expected and pick up all three points here.

Fulham played Liverpool very close in their last game, only going down after Sergio Rico’s brain snap gave up the decisive penalty.

City perhaps took Swansea lightly in their Cup game and will look to avoid a similar letdown here against a side that is expected to lose by a lot anyway.

It’s the same old story for City though, you won’t find much value backing them in the head to head market so you’ll have to look elsewhere for a good value play.

Even though they played Liverpool very close in their last match, Fulham gave up far too many chances and you would have to feel confident in City’s attack force to show a little bit more ruthlessness and put a few past a leaky Fulham defence.

Sunday 31 March, 2:00am, Amex Stadium

Brighton 0 – Southampton 1

Brighton is riding a three game winning streak going into this game that will either give them breathing space in the relegation battle or bring them right back into the mix.

It’s the best time of year to find your strongest run of form of the season as Brighton can give itself at least a six point buffer over eighteenth spot and possible as much as eight.

Southampton only has a two point buffer to the relegation zone and could cause a lot of stress for the teams directly above them and do have the confidence of a 2-1 win over Tottenham in their last Premier League start.

Two plays really jump out for this game, under 2.5 goals and Brighton to win, but only one offers value and with six of Brighton’s nine Premier League wins coming at the Amex Stadium, they could do themselves plenty of favours here.

Burnley 2 – Wolves 0

Barring a massive form slump, Wolves are locked in to a top ten finish in their return season in the Premier League.

Burnley meanwhile face a big fight just to get another season in England’s top flight, finding themselves down in 17th place and losers of their last four games.

Thankfully for them, Cardiff is unlikely to pick up any points this weekend so taking anything from this game would give them a little bit of breathing room.

What was a stingy defence last season has been beaten 59 times already in 2018/2019 and even though Wolves are not the most dangerous attacking side, they are better than Burnley and should win this one.

Huddersfield could be two weeks away from having their relegation confirmed with a 16 point gap between them and safety with seven games to play.

While their win over Wolves a month ago was certainly memorable, it was more of an anomaly in a run that has yielded four points from their last 18 matches.

It’s very surprising to see a Huddersfield opponent at anything like $1.50 but you may as well take them on here considering just how bad the Terriers have been.

Take Palace here and if you feel like their odds are a little bit short, throw the “total goals” double market in there as well.

Each of Palace’s last ten Premier League matches have had two or more goals so you can add that in with some confidence.

Just three points separate tenth placed Leicester and twelfth placed Bournemouth however unless the Cherries can win this one by five, that won’t be changed this weekend.

Leicester has won its last two games but last defeated Bournemouth in the Championship back in February 2014 and over the last three and a half seasons, have recorded five draws and two losses.

Harry Maguire will be missing from this game after being sent off in the fourth minute of their win over Burnley.

If there was ever going to be a week where they can break that run this should be it as they come into the game fresh and firing for Brendan Rodgers.

There are plenty of questions around how this match will go, but none bigger than the ones relating to Manchester United and its recent form slump.

Are the back to back losses to Arsenal and Wolves just a blip on the radar or is there real cause for concern?

It’s fair to remember the absolutely ridiculous pace United have been on under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Premier League and there was always going to be a correction coming.

Now with the race for the top four still very much up for grabs, they need to refocus and get things back on track.

Watford has done a great job beating teams at or below its level lately but has been found out by Liverpool and Manchester City already in games that have featured plenty of goals.

Expect a few goals in this game as United get back into the winners’ circle.

They may as well bill this game as the “inconsistency derby” considering both sides have really struggled to establish an identity this season.

On recent form you have to slightly edge West Ham in this game but they have not won back to back Premier League games since the middle of December.

The Toffees have won the last two meetings between these teams 3-1 and did beat Chelsea in their last match before the international window but their overall form in 2019 has not been that great.

With both sides struggling with inconsistency, the draw might be the way to go in this game.

Cardiff 1 – Chelsea 2

Chelsea’s form is massively concerning right now, still getting the job done in Europe but dropping points in four of their last eight Premier League games.

The question now is whether or not you think that form slump is bad enough to drop points to relegation threatened Cardiff.

To put it simply, it is not that bad and Cardiff presents a fantastic get right opportunity for Chelsea here as they try to keep the pressure on fourth placed Arsenal.

The Blues have won four straight against Cardiff, scoring four in three of those games and they should be able to make short work of their opponents here.

The game of the round, Liverpool hosting Tottenham in a game that will have a big say on the title race and top four race.

Liverpool needs to win every game remaining and even that may not be enough to win the Premier League however all they can do is take care of their own business.

This has been a good fixture for Liverpool losing just once in the last six years and already beating Tottenham back in September at Wembley.

Even though this match has plenty of intrigue to it, Liverpool head to head is just a bit short but considering that each of the last three games have had three or more goals, back another high scoring clash.

It’s been a tried and tested strategy but backing to Arsenal win at the Emirates certainly has been a good one this season.

The big question remains, do you take them to win to nil or back a high scoring game?

Newcastle has given up two or more goals in each of its last three and Arsenal are very short at the back so even with a defensive approach from Unai Emery, the Gunners might need to make sure they get two here to overcome conceding.

17 days after Wolves knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup, these sides face off at Molineux again.

Chances are this game will have a slightly lower level of intensity to it, especially with Wolves gearing up for their semi-final against Watford.

United will need to approach this game with a bit more verve than last time as this will be their final hitout before facing Barcelona in the Champions League next week.

Newly installed as permanent boss on the back of his phenomenal start, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need to have his side firing here with the side in the midst of a battle for the top four.

With Wolves likely to prioritise having their star players fresh for the weekend, you have to like United to come away with all three points here.

When these sides faced off in September it was a 1-1 draw but since then the sides have experienced very different fortunes.

Brighton has a date with Manchester City at Wembley on the horizon, but unlike Watford and Wolves, they can’t afford to be too relaxed about this game with relegation still a possibility.

Chelsea’s form has been… inconsistent as of late to say the least but remarkably a finish in one of the coveted Champions League spots is still on the cards.

To get there though, they need to avoid disappointment in games such as this and even if they are below par, the Blues show be able to win this.

Unfortunately Chelsea to win doesn’t offer much value so instead, we can look for a low scoring game.

Both teams have built their success on a solid defence and under 2.5 goals is the value play here.

Best team, reserve team, youth team… let’s be honest Manchester City could put out any of those sides and still mount a successful Premier League campaign.

What that means for this game against Cardiff is that even if a few of City’s top line players are rested for this midweek match, they should still be able to handle the Bluebirds.

Perhaps the only cause for concern is the fact Cardiff will be incredibly desperate here, coming off a game against Chelsea and need every point available in the relegation battle.

Unfortunately with such uncertainty around City’s lineup, there really isn’t much value on offer for the markets here so it’s one worth staying out of.

A few months later than expected, but Tottenham finally get to open their new stadium with a clash against Crystal Palace.

It’s not quite the London derby they were hoping for against Arsenal but there will be plenty on the line in this clash.

For starters, Palace knocked Tottenham out of the FA Cup back in January and before that, Spurs had won each of the last five meetings by a score of 1-0.

In fact, 1-0 is a very common scoreline in this game with seven of the last nine games finishing with that scoreline.

It’s very hard to see Spurs christening their new stadium with a loss to Palace, but I’m not sure they have the firepower, so for a real long shot play, I’ll take Tottenham to win by an exact score of 1-0.

2017/2018

After what feels like an eternity without a full weekend of English Premier League action, all 20 teams are back in action for Round 32.

With FA Cup and national team commitments put on hold for a little while at least, some teams get to see their side in the Premier League for the first time in three weeks.

Headlining this weekend is the fourth placed feature between Chelsea and Tottenham, with the latter side potentially creating an insurmountable gap for that final Champions League spot.

Read on for our preview of all ten matches on the card for this weekend.

Crystal Palace Vs Liverpool

Saturday 31 March, 10:30pm, Selhurst Park

With the Premier League’s form player in Mohammad Salah, Liverpool will have their eyes on finishing the season on as strong a note as possible.

When playing teams outside the top four, Liverpool have won their last five matches and they are heavily favoured to make it six here.

Palace are in the midst of a brutal run of games at the moment, with a win over Huddersfield a welcome relief after losses to Tottenham, Man United and Chelsea.

Both United and Chelsea were able to put multiple goals past Palace in their matches and Liverpool should be able to do the same however their issues at the back are far from solved and a cheap Palace goal is a solid possibility.

Manchester United Vs Swansea

Sunday 1 April, 1:00am, Old Trafford

When these teams met in August it looked like United would be the all-conquering Premier League side this season however inconsistencies have plagued their recent form.

In their first Premier League match in three weeks, this presents a great opportunity for Jose Mourinho to re-focus his squad for the run home.

This will be the third meeting between these sides this season with United looking to complete the hat-trick after a 4-0 win in the League and a 2-0 win in the Carabao Cup.

That form should continue here with Swansea still frustratingly inconsistent as they fight for Premier League survival.

In a match neither side can really afford to drop as they both chase Premier League safety, Newcastle are favoured to get the job done at home.

Huddersfield’s form as of late has been trouble once they hit the wall in the club’s debut season in the top division.

You have to give Newcastle the edge here thanks to their ability to find points against teams around them as of late whereas Huddersfield are leaking goals at a concerning rate.

Calling a club’s atmosphere toxic is somewhat overused as of late however it is the best description of the relationship between West Ham and their fans.

With three straight three goal losses, West Ham are in freefall and a loss to Southampton will see them fall into the relegation zone.

For Southampton this game could not come at a better time as they are winless in four and in desperate need of points to salvage their season.

Until West Ham find a way to arrest their slide, they are a good side to back against.

This has the potential to be the most even match of the weekend as the 10th and 11th placed sides face off.

Both are on 36 points for the season although Watford has an extra win and has scored more goals but also has a higher goals allowed tally.

Their confidence will also be quite low after back to back losses to Arsenal and Liverpool by a combined margin of 8-0.

It would not be a surprise to see this game play out as a match between two even sides that cannot be split.

West Bromwich Albion Vs Burnley

Sunday 1 April, 1:00am, The Hawthorns

Burnley travel to The Hawthorns looking for their first win over West Brom sincean FA Cup tie in February 2009.

Firmly rooted to the bottom of the table, West Brom could find themselves further adrift of safety at the end of the round.

With a seven game losing streak and winless in over two months, this is a side seemingly destined to suffer the drop.

West Brom are surprisingly favoured to end their losing streak in this match but Burnley are still the better side and are a good upset play to jump on.

Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Leicester City

Sunday 1 April, 1:00am, Amex Stadium

Leicester claimed all three points when these teams met in August and both come into this game in pretty good form.

Brighton saw a five match unbeaten run end in their last outing but that does not change they are the most impressive of the three promoted sides.

Leicester got their first win in since January 21 in their last Premier League match and are not out of the FA Cup so their sole focus now is finishing as high up the table as possible.

This could be a really good game and the market looks to be pretty much spot on, so I’m happy to steer clear of this game and just watch it as a neutral.

Everton Vs Manchester City

Sunday 1 April, 2:30am, Goodison Park

The coronation is almost here, City are currently three wins away from claiming the Premier League title.

They are heavily favoured against an Everton side they have not beaten in a Premier League match since August 2015.

Since that 2-0 at Goodison Park they have been held to a loss and three draws, including their 1-1 draw in the second match of the season.

Everton enter this game on the back of wins over Stoke and Brighton but their inconsistency this season is proving to be maddening for fans and punters alike.

Take the safe play here with City finding their goal scoring touch in a comfortable win.

Arsenal Vs Stoke

Sunday 1 April, 10:30pm, Emirates Stadium

Well it was fun while it lasted, Arsenal’s losing streak gave plenty of fodder but after beating Watford, they will have to be put on the backburner (for now).

They face Stoke at the Emirates this weekend, where they have at times looked like the football team befitting their name, even if the stands are missing a few people.

Stoke won the first meeting between these sides at their home ground in August but are now deep in the relegation zone and are not a team worth taking on.

A look at both sides and their goal scoring record suggests this should be a game to favour the Gunners in a rout.

Chelsea Vs Tottenham

Monday 2 April, 1:00am, Stamford Bridge

Saving the best until last, Chelsea and Tottenham close out the round in a game that neither side can afford to drop.

A win for the home side closes the gap between the two sides to just two points in the race for fourth while a draw or Tottenham win would just about end that contest and allow them to look above them for a possible overtake.

Recent history suggests that Cheslea should have the upper hand winning three of the last four competitive matches.

2016/2017

This is a crucial part of the English Premier League season as all twenty clubs will be playing there third league fixture in the space of a week.

There are no genuine blockbusters this weekend, but every game has some intriguing story line going into it and that always make for fascinating football.

There is plenty of value to be found in the English Premier League this weekend and you can find our recommended bets for every game below.

Tottenham Hotspur Vs Watford

Sunday 9 April, 9:30am, White Hart Lane

Tottenham Hotspur 4 - Watford 0

Tottenham Hotspur got out of jail late to beat Swansea City midweek and they will go into this clash with Watford as clear favourites.

White Hart Lane continues to be a very happy hunting ground for Tottenham and they have won 13 of their past 17 games as home favourites for a clear profit.

Watford made it two wins on the trot with a midweek victory over West Bromwich Albion, but they face a much tougher challenge against Tottenham this weekend.

The Hornets have actually proven to be a profitable betting play as away underdogs this season, but they have won only four of their past 17 games in this scenario.

This is a game that the market looks to have got just about right and I am more than happy to stay out of this clash from a betting standpoint.

No Bet

Manchester City Vs Hull City

Sunday 9 April, 12:00am, Etihad Stadium

Manchester City 3 - Hull City 1

Manchester City have now won a game in the English Premier League for over a month, but they will still go into this clash with Hull City as dominant favourites.

It is fair to say that Manchester City have had a tough run in recent weeks, but they are now completely out of the title picture after dropping points to Stoke City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Manchester City have won only nine of their past 17 games as home favourites for a clear loss and they have been a very tough team to trust from a betting perspective this season.

Hull City have climbed out of the relegation zone with their wins over West Ham and Middlesbrough, but this is obviously a much tougher challenge.

They have won just one of their past 15 games away from home and winning on the road has proven extremely difficult for this side.

This is another game where there is not a great deal of betting value and I am happy to stay out once again.

No Bet

Middlesbrough Vs Burnley

Sunday 9 April, 12:00am, Riverside Stadium

Middlesbrough 0 - Burnley 0

This is a crucial game for Middlesbrough, who desperately need to take the three points from this clash if they are to avoid relegation.

Middlesbrough are still chasing their first win of 2017, but they will still start this clash as favourites.

It is almost impossible to have any faith in Middlesbrough at this stage of the season.

They have won just three of their past nine games as home favourites and they have scored only one goal in their past six English Premier League games.

Burnley ended a winless run with a midweek win over Stoke City, but they continue to struggle to win away from home.

They have taken just three points from their 15 away games this season and it is really is staggering how much worse they are on the road.

This is set to be a very low-scoring affair and the $2.50 on offer for under 1.5 goals is outstanding value.

Back Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.50

Stoke City Vs Liverpool

Sunday 9 April, 12:00am, Britannia Stadium

Stoke City 1 - Liverpool 2

Liverpool dropped more points with their midweek draw against Bournemouth, but they will still start this clash as clear favourites.

Winning away from home has been something of an issue for Liverpool this season and they have won only five of their past 13 games as away favourites for a clear loss.

Stoke City have lost three games in a row and they are another team that have been tough to trust from a betting perspective this season.

They have won only one of their past 10 games as home underdogs, but they have taken a point from five of their games in this scenario.

Stoke City are very tough to break down in front of their home fans and this is the sort of game in which Liverpool have struggled badly this season.

Stoke City are capable of taking a point from this game and the $3.60 is definitely over the odds.

Back The Draw @ $3.60

West Bromwich Albion Vs Southampton

Sunday 9 April, 12:00am, The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion 0 - Southampton 1

West Bromwich Albion have the home ground advantage, but it is Southampton that will go into this clash as clear favourites.

Southampton returned to winning form against Crystal Palace midweek, but they continue to be a side that is tough to trust from a betting standpoint.

The Saints have won just five of their past 11 games as away favourites for a loss and they have struggled to record back-to-back wins.

West Bromwich Albion produced a fairly uninspiring performance against Watford on Wednesday morning, but they have a proven ability to bounce back from a defeat.

The Baggies have proven to be a profitable betting team as home underdogs this season and their record at The Hawthorns has been outstanding.

West Bromwich Albion are more than capable of winning this game and the $3 currently on offer is well and truly over the odds.

West Ham United Vs Swansea City

Sunday 9 April, 12:00am, Olympic Stadium

West Ham United 1 - Swansea City 0

West Ham have lost five games on the trot and have not won an English Premier League game for two months, but they will still start this clash with Swansea City as clear favourites.

West Ham really have played some putrid football in recent weeks and they are side that clearly has plenty of issues at the back.

They have won only six of their past 12 games as home favourites for a loss and the Olympic Stadium really has not been a happy hunting ground for the Hammers.

Swansea City looked set to pick up a crucial three points from their midweek clash with Tottenham, but they fell apart late and now find themselves back in the relegation zone.

Swansea City have only won four games away from home this season, but they have been a highly profitable betting play in this scenario.

I am more than happy to take on West Ham in this clash and the $6 available for both teams to score and Swansea to win is simply outstanding value.

Bournemouth Vs Chelsea

Sunday 9 April, 2:30am, Goldsands Stadium

Bournemouth 1 - Chelsea 3

Chelsea put one hand on the English Premier League Trophy with their midweek win over Manchester City and it really should be smooth sailing for the champions elect.

The loss at the hands of Crystal Palace already looks like an aberration and Chelsea have won 10 of their past 14 games as away favourites for a clear profit.

Bournemouth  extended their unbeaten run with a come-from-behind draw against Liverpool and they have proven tough to beat at Goldsands Stadium this season.

In saying that, Chelsea are on another level from Liverpool and they really would need to play extremely well to have any chance this weekend.

There is no great luxury at the current price, but there is still a bit of value in the $1.57 on offer for a Chelsea win.

Sunderland Vs Manchester United

Sunday 9 April, 10:30pm, Stadium Of Light

Sunderland 0 - Manchester United 3

Manchester United are one of the shortest priced favourites in the English Premier League this weekend and they really should be too strong for a struggling Sunderland.

Manchester United have won just three of their past eight English Premier League games, but they have still not lost since October.

They have actually had an easier time winning away from Old Trafford this season and they have won nine of their past 13 games as home favourites for a clear profit.

Sunderland were luckless against Leicester City during the week and they have not scored a goal in their past six English Premier League games.

They have won just two of their past 12 games as home underdogs and have been a losing betting proposition across just about every metric.

Manchester United really should win this game and can keep a clean sheet in the process.

Everton Vs Leicester City

Monday 10 April, 1:0am, Goodison Park

Everton 4 - Leicester City 2

This is one of the most interesting games of the weekend and should be a fairly exciting affair.

Everton went down to Liverpool last Saturday and they were cruelly denied a win against Manchester United midweek after conceding a late penalty.

Everton have not lost at Goodison Park this season and they have won 10 of their past 12 games in front of their home fans.

Leicester City have won five straight English Premier League games since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri and they have played some excellent football in the process, but this is a much tougher test.

The Foxes have won only one of their past 11 games as away underdogs for a clear loss and Everton are definitely the strongest side that they have played in recent weeks.

Everton are extremely tough to beat at Goodison Park and I don’t think that will change this weekend.

Crystal Palace Vs Arsenal

Tuesday 11 April, 5:00am, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 3 - Arsenal 0

Arsenal produced their best performance in a number of weeks to beat West Ham midweek and they will go into this London Derby with Crystal Palace as clear favourites.

Arsenal continue to be a tough side to trust from a betting perspective and they have won only six of their past 11 games as away favourites for a clear loss.

Crystal Palace had their winning run ended by Southampton during the week, but their is no doubt that they have been in stellar form in recent weeks.

They still remain only a win out of the relegation zone and any points that they can pick-up against side likes Arsenal will be vital.

Crystal Palace have won only one of their past six games as home favourites, but they have obviously been much better than that record suggests in recent weeks.

This is another clash that the market looks to have got just about right and I am happy to stay out from a betting standpoint.
