Chelsea vs Manchester City (Sunday 2.30am AEDT)
Manchester City have begun to revive their season as they have won their last two premier league matches whilst they have been successful in the Champions League and reached the semi final stage for the first time in club history. Their goal scoring form has returned and it has been in association with the return of Kevin De Bruyne from injury. He has brought spark back to the side whilst David Da Silva has begun to regain some form after being sidelined throughout the middle stages of the season with his own injury.
Meanwhile Chelsea suffered another disappointing loss last week as they fell to Swansea City on home soil. It keeps the side in 10th place and it looks as if the team won’t even qualify for the Europa League this season. The defending champions haven’t had any momentum at all this year and with Manchester City finding its feet again, we are backing them to earn the victory.
Leicester City vs West Ham United (Sunday 10.30pm AEDT)
West Ham United played a midweek FA cup replay match against Manchester United and they fell 2-1 in a close encounter. The hammers have been another strong side this season that has been able to compete with all of the top clubs. In the Premier League they are on an 8-match undefeated streak with their last three matches all ending in draws. They fell behind 2-0 against Arsenal last week but they managed to produce a great comeback on the back of an Andy Carrol hat trick. The match eventually ended in a draw. Carol will again be the main target up front for West Ham this weekend as he has a lot of ability in the air.
However, Leicester City has won their past five matches and have the most to play for out of any team in the competition. It was 0-0 at half time and Jamie Vardy stepped up in the second half like he and the players around him have all season as he scored two goals in the final 45-minutes. They have now confirmed their spot in the Champions League and a win here would be massive towards them clinching the premier league title. They haven’t conceded a goal in their past five matches and whilst we believe that West Ham will break that this weekend, Leicester City will find a way to come out on top.
Stoke City vs Tottenham Hotspur (Tuesday 5am AEDT)
The Spurs earned a big victory last week against Manchester United, as they were able to score three goals in the space of six minutes to keep the title race alive. They are one of the best attacking teams and still manage to keep their defence locked up as they have only conceded 25 goals in 33 matches.
Meanwhile Stoke City suffered a big loss last week as they lost 4-1 on the road to Liverpool. Their defence was cracked far too easily whilst when they pushed forward they didn’t create many solid chances.
Stoke City is traditionally a hard place to play but they have won just seven and lost six at home this season and the Spurs have won eight games on the road and suffered just two losses. We are predicting them to improve that record and earn a victory on the road.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool (Sunday 10.30pm AEDT)
Liverpool is one of the more inconsistent teams this season but they have begun to find some form throughout the last six weeks of the Premier League. They have lost just one match in that spell and it was a match they should have won as they were leading 2-0 against Southampton and fell 3-2. However, since then they held the Spurs to a 1-1 draw and defeated Stoke City last week 4-1. They have also defeated Manchester United twice in the Europa League and earned a 1-1 draw in Germany against Dortmund. The Reds are starting to rise as the impact of Jurgen Klopp as their new coach is starting to show signs of positivity.
Bournemouth has moved into a great position on the ladder in their first ever season in the premier league. They are almost certainly out of the relegation picture as they sit 14 points above the danger zone. They have won four of their last six matches with their two losses coming against the Spurs and Manchester City, we believe that although Bournemouth are an improved side, when they come up against the top clubs they are overwhelmed and they will lose this one.
