The 2015-16 EPL season continues this weekend, however half of the matches have been postponed due to the FA Cup. It should still be an entertaining round as we provide our EPL Week 30 Preview and Betting Tips.

Norwich City vs Manchester City (Saturday 11.45pm AEDT)
Manchester City picked up a vital win in their last league match as it saw them remain in the top four. They are just one point ahead of West Ham who is in 5th place but they have a game in hand. Holding on to the top four spot is paramount for the club, as they will want to remain in the Champions League. The side returned to their attacking best as they put four goals past Aston Villa last week and whilst it was against a club on the bottom of the table they are against another struggling side this weekend.
Norwich City hasn’t won a game since in over two months and they have lost five of their last six games. Over those six games they have only found the back of the net on three occasions as their goal scoring ability has almost completely disappeared. City will prove they are far superior on Saturday night and hand the Budgies a big loss.
Stoke City vs Southampton (Sunday 2am AEDT)
This will be one of the matches of the round with Stoke City sitting one spot ahead of Southampton in 8th place with just two competition points separating them. The home side will head into this one with a lot of confidence as they are undefeated across their past four matches and won 3 of those four games. They were able to leave Stamford Bridge last week with a point as they played out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea. The side had a slow start to the season but over time the players they acquired in the offseason have begun to gel and excel together.
Meanwhile Southampton have entered a form slump and are winless in their past three matches which includes two losses. They have scored just two goals across that span and they have been unable to create quality chances. Stoke has been strong at home this season and they have picked up some big wins at the Brittania stadium. We expect that to continue this weekend and we are backing the side that is in good form.
Aston Villa vs Tottenham (Monday 3am AEDT)
The Spurs have picked up just one point in their past two matches albeit against strong opponents. They head into this contest five points behind Leicester City in the title race and this is a must win for the side as they come up against the bottom placed Villa. They have been just as strong on the road as at home this year and that shouldn’t alter the outcome of this match.
Aston Villa has lost their past four matches and have conceded a whopping 15 goals in those games. They are destined to be relegated at the end of the season and whilst they have plenty to play for they haven’t been able to lift their level and the Spurs will be far too strong for them on Monday morning. The Spurs have one of the best defences in the league and Villa won’t trouble the scoring.
Leicester City vs Newcastle united (Tuesday 7am AEDT)
The last game of the round will prove the most interesting as we expect the fairy tale to continue and Leicester earn the victory in this one. They left it until the second half to defeat Watford but it was again Riyad Mahrez who stepped up and found the back of the net as he and Jamie Vardy have been clutch for the Foxes this season. They have lost just one match on home soil and as they are up against Newcastle United who have won just two on the road whilst losing 11, this should be a comfortable victory for the Foxes.
Newcastle also head into this one having won one of their past five matches as they find themselves in second last place on the ladder. They have scored just three goals in that span whilst they have been conceding at a high rate. The Foxes continue to shock the world and it will be no different as they earn the three points on home soil.
