Dapo Olajuwon’s EPL prediction: Game Week 33B


Liverpool vs Man Utd- 1X (Tip: 2-0)
Liverpool are high flying at the moment while Man Utd are inconsistent which is not a good form to go to Anfield. Although they won 3-2 over Norwich last time out, that’s due to Ronaldo’s brilliance in my opinion – scoring a superb freekick and I do not see that coming to play here. These are rivals but I’m not expecting an end-to-end game. Liverpool will get the 3 points unless Man Utd pull out a surprise because I’m not expecting anything from the Red Devils. FT: LIV 4-0 MNU


Chelsea vs Arsenal- 1 (Tip: 2-0)
I think Arsenal are done for the season because they seem to have returned to their old sleeves. I checked through their fixtures and they are quite difficult for them in my opinion. They have to be at their best and win all their games if they are still aiming for the top 4. They will be playing away from home against Chelsea here with their away woes catching up with them, I can’t make a case for them. I will be backing the Blues to take the 3 points in this London derby because they are going into this game with great momentum. FT: CHE 2-4 ARS

Everton vs Leicester- over 1.5 (Tip: 2-1)
I don’t know what’s wrong with Leicester. They’ve been up and down this season and you never can tell what you’d get from them. I think Everton will capitalize on this in their survival mode and get something out of this game. The Toffees got a surprising win over the Red Devils last time out and I think they will try to repeat the same game plan against another inconsistent side. But if only the Foxes could be at their best for some time in the game, I believe they can also get something out of this game because they have got the quality and team to do it. FT: EVE 1-1 LEI

Newcastle vs Crystal Palace- over 1.5 (Tip: 1-1)
This fixture has a draw written all over its face. These are two matching sides for one another. Newcastle are safe and on a good run showing their coach, Eddie Howe that can be reliable while Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are also playing well under Patrick Vieira. The Eagles are a compact and solid team that even when they are not winning, still play well. Either of them can win this game which I honestly don’t know but whoever is going to be won’t have it easy. FT: NEW 1-0 CRY

Man City vs Brighton- 1 (Tip: 2-0)
I don’t think this is the right time for Brighton to play at the Etihad against Man City who had just got knocked out by Liverpool in the FA Cup a couple of days ago because I think City will have fire in their belly by now. I think Pep Guardiola would field his strong team here because every league game looks like a final to the Cityzens at the moment and I know Pep always likes to get back to winning ways right after a defeat. FT: MCI 3-0 BRI

Burnley vs Southampton- 2X (Tip: 1-1)
Southampton got a good win at Saint Mary’s last time out over Arsenal and I’m glad they justified my case for them being strong at home. I think they will maintain the momentum going into this game because I think Burnley are unstable at the moment after parting ways with Sean Dyche. I can see a draw but I won’t rule out the Saints getting a win here. FT: BUR 2-0 SOU
