🍒 BOURNEMOUTH VS CHELSEA 🔵 (15:00 WAT)
Chelsea are on a losing streak having lost 6 consecutive games. Their performance has been woeful, they have no identity, and they find it difficult to shoot the ball which has made it impossible for them to score goals. It is hard to make a case for them here because they are up against Bournemouth away from home, a side that has been doing well since the international break. I don’t think this Chelsea team can beat Bournemouth at the moment because you can’t even get a spirit out of the Blues. They need to get something out of this game because it seems they can only pick up points against Bournemouth and Nott. Forest (their next game). After these two games, their remaining opponents are Man Utd, Man City, and Newcastle if I am correct. So they need to give it their all.
PREDICTION: Over 1.5
TIP: BOU 1-1 CHE
RESULT: BOU 1-3 CHE
💎 MAN CITY VS LEEDS UTD ⚪ (15:00 WAT)
This is not going to be a good welcome for Leeds Utd’s new manager, Sam Allardyce as he travels to the Etihad Stadium for his first game in charge. He’s a good manager but the atmosphere at Man City is going to be toxic for the Whites. Man City are in gear with the advantage of winning the league title after beating and overtaking Arsenal and I can’t see them dropping any points here because it seems they have hit again that period they used to win ten to sixteen games consecutively which always wins the league for them. They are going to face Real Madrid in the midweek in the UCL semi-final and it is almost predictable that Pep Guardiola is going to rest some players. Leeds Utd will fancy this advantage but I still can’t see them getting something here because City’s second team is almost as good as the first team. I just feel Sam Allardyce will set up his side to disturb them and probably get a goal because Man City have found it difficult these days to keep a clean sheet.
TIP: MCI 3-1 LEE
RESULT: MCI 2-1 LEE
⚪ TOTTENHAM VS CRYSTAL PALACE 🦅 (15:00 WAT)
Tottenham had an awful performance against Liverpool last time out before they managed to level up in the second half. Although they lost, they responded well in the second half but can we get more reaction from them here? They will be up against a rejuvenated Crystal Palace side under Roy Hodgson that has been impressive and scoring goals with Eberechi Eze enjoying the best form of his life and banging goals for fun. Palace are scoring goals while Spurs can’t stop conceding goals which means this game should be a high-scoring affair.
PREDICTION: Over 2.5
TIP: TOT 2-2 CRY
RESULT: TOT 1-0 CRY
🐺 WOLVES VS ASTON VILLA 🦁 (15:00 WAT)
Wolves had their biggest defeat this season against Brighton last time out and it was an extremely awful performance in the 6-0 defeat. They will be up against the wounded Lions here who lost 1-0 against Man Utd last time out which was the first time they have refused to score under Unai Emery. Aston Villa will be eager to bounce back to winning ways here as they pursue their ambition for Europe competition next season. Come what may, I expect Aston Villa to get something out of this game.
TIP: WOL 0-2 ASV
RESULT: WOL 1-0 ASV
🔴 LIVERPOOL VS BRENTFORD 🐝 (17:30 WAT)
Liverpool have been gaining momentum recently in terms of results. They have won 5 consecutive games and are unbeaten in 7 games. They have now set their eyes on the Europa League spot at least and they are so on course. Brentford, on the other hand, have been declining in performance and they were lucky to have beaten Nott. Forest last time out. They will be going to Anfield here, a lion’s den, and I think it is not going to be a good outing for them. Liverpool will be ready for this as they will be keen to keep their ambition intact.
TIP: LIV 2-1 BRE
RESULT: LIV 1-0 BRE
⚫ NEWCASTLE VS ARSENAL 🔴 (16:30 WAT)
This is a clash of the titans and has to be a cracker. Newcastle are buzzing at the moment while Arsenal just bounced back to winning ways against Chelsea last time out in a 3-1 victory in the London derby. Going to St. James’ Park could be a tricky one for the Gunners at this time of the season. First of all, I feel the boys are tired and again, they seem to be playing under the pressure of keeping up with City as the Cityzens have done most of the time this season. Newcastle, on the other hand, are playing very well without pressure and are aiming to seal up their top 4 race. They are still on a mission to finish above Man Utd which makes me think that they will fight till the end to try and get something out of this game if not a win and there will be a couple of goals.
PREDICTION: Over 1.5
TIP: NEW 2-1 ARS
RESULT: NEW 0-2 ARS
⚒️ WEST HAM VS MAN UTD 👹 (19:00 WAT)
West Ham are on a losing streak having lost their last 3 league games and I don’t think it will end here against Man Utd. They have not been great this season and are inconsistent, so you never can tell what outcome you can get from them. Man Utd aim to finish in the top four so that they can play in the Champions League next season. I can see and feel the zeal to achieve this, especially with the way they played against Aston Villa last weekend at Old Trafford. I never expected them to keep a clean sheet but they proved me wrong. Although they are having injury concerns at the back, they have a greater purpose to play for after losing 1-0 to Brighton in the midweek – courtesy of a late penalty winner by Alexis Mac Allister from Luke Shaw’s handball in the penalty area while trying to clear out an aerial ball. The Red Devils will be eager to bounce back to winning ways which is why I will be backing them here to keep their top 4 aim intact.
TIP: WHU 1-2 MUN
RESULT: WHU 1-0 MUN
⚪ FULHAM VS LEICESTER 🦊 (15:00 WAT)
Dean Smith wasn’t impressed with the Foxes last time out after playing a 2-2 draw at home against Everton. I believe he will be asking more from his players here. Fulham have finally moved on without their striker and they are not doing bad. They lost narrowly to Liverpool in the midweek in a 1-0 defeat at Anfield and will be eager to bounce back to winning ways at the Craven Cottage; a ground where they seem like they can beat any team. We also saw how they gave Man City a good game and if they keep up to that level of performance here, they will surely win this game.
PREDICTION: Over 1.5
TIP: FUL 1-1 LEI
RESULT: FUL 5-3 LEI
🐦 BRIGHTON VS EVERTON 🔵 (17:30 WAT)
Everton managed to get a draw against Leicester last time out and I think they will be looking forward to doing that here again but I don’t think it will be a good outing for them here. Brighton are at home again after doing a double on Man Utd for the first time in their Premier League history which is going to boost their level of confidence going into this one. They have beaten Man Utd in their last three meetings in the #PL. I think they will build on it here as they move to 6th position and will be determined to secure a Europa League spot for next season. They are in the mix and they can achieve it. They will also have the home advantage and I’d be surprised if they do not get something out of this game.
TIP: BHA 2-1 EVE
RESULT: BHA 1-5 EVE
🎄 NOTT. FOREST VS SOUTHAMPTON ⛔ (20:00 WAT)
This is a bottom clash. For me, I think Southampton have already been relegated while Nott. Forest are still hanging there and hoping to get lucky. It is a very tight relegation battle at the bottom of the table this season. Nott. Forest seem to be strong at home and their recent performance has been good. They gave Liverpool a good fight at Anfield, won Brighton at home, and then nearly kept Brentford out last time out. I think they will try all their best to get a result here because their next match is against Chelsea. I don’t think the Saints will have the zeal to play excellently but rather just go out there and exercise their bodies.
TIP: NFO 1-0 SOU
RESULT: NFO 4-3 SOU
