Tottenham vs Arsenal (Saturday 11.45pm AEDT)
It was a week to forget for both of these sides as they slipped in the title race. The Gunners suffered back-to-back losses in the league against Manchester United and then against Swansea at home. The two losses has seen them drop six points behind the leaders Leicester and it will be a tough ask for them to overcome this with a tough road to finish the season as well as commitments with other competitions.
Meanwhile the Spurs lost their fourth match in the league all season and it came at the hands of West Ham. The side was unable to trouble the scoring throughout the match and it seemed as if the Spurs lost their way. It is understandable as the side has had a tough workload lately but they will need to bounce back immediately as they are three points behind Leicester and a slip up here would be costly. However, we see these two sides putting in everything into this match with both teams having great attacks and solid defences it will result in this one ending in a draw.
Everton vs West Ham (Sunday 2am AEDT)
The Hammers are undefeated in their past three matches which includes two victories. Their latest win came against the Spurs midweek, which is another big scalp for the side this season. They have defeated Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City and this has contributed to them sitting in sixth position on the ladder and just one point out of the top four.
After a strong start to the season Everton had a midseason slump that has seen them drop into the middle of the ladder. However, they earned a solid victory midweek on the road and they were at their goal scoring best as they put three past the bottom placed Aston Villa. The side has the second best attack in the league and if they can hold their own defensively they will snap the winning streak of West Ham this weekend.
Swansea City vs Norwich City (Sunday 2am AEDT)
Norwich City has lost seven of its last eight games and the side has now dropped into the relegation zone and is faced with the real possibility of being relegated at the end of the season. They have the equal worst defence in the league but are coming up the Swansea who has the second worst attack in the league. However, Swansea caused their biggest upset of the season midweek as they defeated Arsenal on the road and threw their title chase into disarray.
Swansea will be full of confidence after that victory but it wasn’t a one off performance for the side as they were able to lead Tottenham earlier in the week for the majority of the match but were eventually beaten towards the end. We are backing them to maintain that level of play as they head into this weekend against the most out of form team in the competition.
Watford vs Leicester City (Sunday 4.30am AEDT)
Despite a draw at home against West Bromwich Albion, Leicester City has managed to maintain its spot on the top of the table. Their goal-scoring run continued as they put two past the baggies and it took a stunning free kick for the scores to be levelled.
We believe it will be another wake up call for the Foxes and they will come out with a point to prove this weekend. They are the best away team in the competition and will lift for the occasion whilst Watford is coming off a 1-0 loss to Manchester united on the road. They aren’t a strong attacking team and they won’t be able to match it with the goal scoring ability of the Foxes who have Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez in terrific form.
