This weekend’s Premier League action gets underway Friday night with some huge fixtures on the way as we reach the business end of the season. In a dress rehearsal of the Champions League final, Manchester City host Chelsea in the pick of action on Saturday. Manchester United begin a run of three games in five days when they take on Aston Villa on Sunday with West Ham United hosting Everton in a game that will have huge ramifications on the race for European qualification.
That is a massive game. Leeds play brave football and attack. That could open gaps for Spurs, but they may also find Leeds scoring goals. Spurs let in easy goals so I’m saying a draw. Prediction 2-2. Betfair Exchange odds: Leeds 13/5, Spurs Evens, Draw 3/1 Sheffield United vs Crystal Palace I don’t think this is a game I’ll be watching to be honest. Sheffield United will be thinking about next season ass will Palace. Both teams are on the beach, and I can see this one being a boring draw. Prediction 1-1. Betfair Exchange odds: Sheffield United 2/1, Crystal Palace 8/5, Draw 12/5 Man City vs Chelsea
Massive game. City are riding high as are Chelsea. Both teams know each other. City can win the title if they win on Saturday, but I don’t think it will give them a psychological boost for the Champions League final if they win. Prediction 1-1. Betfair Exchange odds: Manchester City Evens, Chelsea 100/30, Draw 13/5 Liverpool vs Southampton Liverpool should win this. It’s a tough time for the club, and they have a lot to do if they want to get European football next season, but they have enough quality to win this. Prediction 2-1. Betfair Exchange odds: Liverpool 1/3, Southampton 10/1, Draw 5/1 Wolves vs Brighton Wolves have disappointed this season, they will be looking forward to a little break so that they can regroup and prepare to do much better next season. Brighton know they will be safe if they can get all three points, but I can’t see that happening. Prediction 1-1. Betfair Exchange odds: Wolves 12/5, Brighton 11/8, Draw – 12/5 Aston Villa vs Man Utd
No surprise but I’ll go for United in this one. Ole’s men are riding high at the moment, but I want to see them maintain the second position in the league. Aston Villa are playing for nothing which can lead to a drop in motivation. Prediction 0-3. Betfair Exchange odds: Villa 7/2, United 5/6, Draw 3/1 West Ham vs Everton West Ham are having a fairytale season and hopefully they can get Champions League football as they deserve it. It isn’t going to be easy and they need Chelsea to drop some points. I do like the look of their fixtures though. Everton have really dropped off recently, they were in contention for top four but now they are pretty much playing for nothing. Prediction 2-0. Betfair Exchange odds: West Ham 11/8, Everton 12/5, Draw 5/2 Arsenal vs West Brom
