Aston Villa vs Chelsea (Saturday 11.45pm AEDT)
Despite Chelsea having their worst season in over a decade, they still have a lot of pride left to play for as well as a possible position in the Europa League. They are facing the bottom placed Aston Villa side that is destined to be relegated as they now sit 10 points astray of being in a safe position.
Chelsea are undefeated in their past six league games but head into this one on the back of two draws. However, Aston Villa has lost six straight league games and have failed to score in their last three matches. They have allowed 18 goals throughout that span at an average of three goals a match. The class Chelsea has across their side will see them earn a comfortable victory in this one.
West Ham vs Crystal Palace (Sunday 1am AEDT)
The Eagles have fallen into a massive slump at the worst time of the season and haven’t picked up a victory in the league this year with their last win coming against Stoke on December 19th. It will be a tough ask for them to break their poor streak against West Ham United who are in great form and pushing for a spot in the top four. The Hammers sit just one point behind Manchester City in fifth place and are undefeated in their past five matches. Across that stretch they have earned three victories including a hard fought victory at home against the Spurs. The Hammers defence has tightened up as they head into this final stretch whilst their goal scoring has continued to maintain a high rate. They will be far too strong for Palace with so much to play for West Ham in this one.
Liverpool vs Tottenham (Sunday 2.30am AEDT)
A massive match for the Spurs as they look to continue to keep up with Leicester City in the title race. The Foxes are currently five points clear at the top which means Tottenham can’t afford any slip ups as we head into the final period of the season. Liverpool had a comfortable 2-0 lead at halftime last week against Southampton and they allowed three goals in the second half to ultimately lose the match. This could be a result of having to play a hard midweek Europa match against Manchester United but a side with the quality of Liverpool shouldn’t be letting a two goal lead slip.
Meanwhile the Spurs have returned to business as usual after a slip up against West Ham and Arsenal. Harry Kane was at his best in his last match against Bournemouth and he opened the scoring inside 45 seconds before scoring a quality second and his shot led to his sides third. They have kept back-to-back clean sheets and have the best defence in the league by six goals to their nearest rival. We are backing the Spurs to throw everything into this contest as they need to pick up the three points and it should make for an entertaining encounter with the Spurs coming away with the win.
Leicester City vs Southampton (Sunday 10.30pm AEDT)
This match could be a real threat for the Foxes as they face a side that has a lot of success against the top teams. Leicester has managed to create a five point gap at the top of the table and they have had to do it the hard way across their past five matches as four of them have been 1-0 victories for the side. It has left supporters and band wagoners with barely any fingernails remaining as it is a constant sweat until the final moments. However, these are the games that championship sides win and they have ben able to manage it.
Meanwhile Southampton has bounced back to form in their last two league games as they earned a massive come from behind victory against Liverpool whilst they defeated Stoke the week before. However, the Foxes have shut down a lot of teams this year with their defensive efforts whilst they still have found the back of the net themselves. We are expecting this match to be no different as the Foxes continue to push for the elusive title.
