The 2015-16 EPL season continues this week as Leicester City are now sitting in a comfortable position on the top of the table but they still can’t afford to slip up now. Continue reading as we offer our EPL week 33 Preview and Betting Tips.

West Ham United vs Arsenal (Saturday 9.45pm AEDT)
Arsenal has overcame their late slump to pick up two wins from their past three matches. They had a draw against Tottenham before keeping a clean sheet against Everton and Watford and scoring six goals across the two matches. Their slump could be accounted for the high amount of matches they were forced to play across three competitions. Now that their sole focus is on the Premier League we are expecting them to finish the season strongly despite their chance of lifting the Premier League trophy incredibly low.
Meanwhile West Ham United are undefeated in their last six matches and are still a chance of finishing in the top four and booking a spot in the Champions League for next season. They have had two draws in their last two games but they have earned quality wins this season against Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham. They aren’t a side that you can take lightly as they are strong in attack and we are backing this match to end in a draw as Arsenal always seem to drop points when they are looking their best.
Sunderland vs Leicester City (Sunday 10.30pm AEDT)
The Foxes fairy tale is almost complete. Their fourth straight 1-0 victory has seen them climb 7 points clear at the top of the table after Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. The title is well and truly theirs too lose now and they will definitely be searching for the three points as they take on Sunderland who is currently in the relegation zone. However, Sunderland have proven hard to defeat in their last four matches as they have taken a point away in all of those contests.
Although the Leicester City attack as slowed down in recent weeks, their ability to defend behind the ball and maintain a clean sheet proves they are a championship side. We are expecting their attacking spark to return this weekend as they score multiple goals against a defence that has allowed 55 goals this season. Meanwhile the Foxes defence has averaged just one goal conceded per match and they will comfortably get the win.
Tottenham vs Manchester United (Monday 1am AEDT)
The Red Devils have surprisingly returned to form to finish the season despite the rumours surrounding the Louis Van Gaal being sacked as head coach at the end of the season. They have won four of their last five matches including victories against Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton. They have been able to do so without their captain Wayne Rooney as Marcus Rashford has shown signs that he can one day be a superstar as the 18-year-old has scored in crucial matches at such a young age.
Meanwhile the Spurs are sitting in second position and can’t afford to lose any more points if they are to catch Leicester City in top spot. They were forced to settle for a draw last week against Liverpool as they couldn’t find their winning goal that would have seen them narrow the gap. Their defence is still the strongest in the league with the Red Devils a close second having conceded just two goals more. Manchester United has David De Gea to thank for their record as he has saved them on a lot of occasions this season. However, the Spurs have scored 18 more goals this season, which leaves us to back them on their home soil to earn the three points.
Liverpool vs Stoke City (Monday 1am AEDT)
These two sides are in a similar position on the ladder and it represents their similarities in consistency, as you don’t know which side will turn up on which day. Liverpool were strong last week as they held Tottenham to a draw but the week before they let a 2-0 goal lead slip against Southampton as they fell apart in the second half. They will be forced to back up after a Europa League match against Dortmund which means they will be travelling back from Germany and having a short turn around in this one.
Meanwhile Stoke will enter the match having won one of their last four matches with two ending in draws. The side is two points ahead of Liverpool and a win in this one would go a long way to sealing them a position in the Europa League for next season. They need Xherdan Shaqiri to play to his full potential to create a lot of chances for the side and control the midfield. We are backing them to cause an upset in this one with Liverpool having a poor record after a short turn around and they will earn the value three points.
