The 2015-16 EPL season has just two weeks remaining but the title race is over as Leicester City completed the Fairy tale over the weekend to be crowned the Premier League Champions. It is an incredible feat as they before the season started they were paying a massive 5000-1 to lift the trophy and were actually favourites to be relegated. Continue reading as we have our EPL week 37 Preview and Betting Tips.

Norwich City vs Manchester United (Saturday 9.45pm AEST)
The Red Devils exploded out of the blocks last week against the now champions Leicester City, as they clearly didn’t want to see another side claim the EPL title on their soil. They created a number of chances early on and Anthony Martial found his name on the scorer’s sheet after just seven minutes. However, they were caught out on from a set piece and weren’t able to trouble the scoring for the rest of the match despite dominating the chances and possession. Manchester United have improved throughout the back half of the season and are still within striking distance of a top four spot but they will need to win both of their matches whilst crosstown rivals Manchester City will need to lose both of theirs.
Norwich City have suffered three losses in a row and two of them were against sides they are looking to leap frog on the ladder. They are sitting in the relegation zone and unfortunately for them they weren’t able to earn a point despite a solid performance against Arsenal last weekend. Whilst the Budgies have defended valiantly against the stronger teams in the league, the Red Devils will have too much fire power in this one with their younger players continuing to fill with confidence and looking to earn a big victory.
West Ham United vs Swansea City (Sunday 12am AEST)
Swansea earned a huge victory last week to ensure they will stay in the top flight next season. It was a 3-1 win against Liverpool, however the Reds key players were sitting on the sidelines as they prepare for the second leg of the Europa League semi-final.
Meanwhile West Ham have an opportunity to secure their place in the Europa League next year with a victory this weekend. They have won their last two matches as their goal scoring record continues to remain high as they have put three goals past their opponents in consecutive weeks. To their credit, they have also only conceded one goal throughout that period and it is a strong sign that they will be able to do the same again this weekend against Swansea who have one of the lowest goal scoring tallies in the league.
Leicester City vs Everton (Sunday 2.30am AEST)
The newly crowned champions will return home this weekend and play their last home game of the season. It will be an amazing scene and you can imagine it will be a massive party. However, the Foxes won’t want their celebrations ruined by losing this match and you can expect them to put on another great performance and they could be a lot more free flowing in attack with nothing to lose. Jamie Vardy makes his return to the side up front which will allow them to return to their style of spreading out the oppositions defence with two wingers and giving Vardy a lot of space up front and attempting to utilise his pace. This could be enough to see the Foxes grab a couple of goals as Everton’s defence has been caught on the break on a few occasions this season.
Everton has fallen off the pace throughout the second half of the season and after being on a seven game stretch with no victories in the premier league they finally snapped it last week at home against Bournemouth. However, it was far from impressive and if they play in a similar fashion this weekend it will be a comfortable victory for the champions.
Manchester City vs Arsenal (Monday 1am AEST)
The Gunners haven’t lost a match in the Premier League in nearly two months but they haven’t been in great form as they have had a lot of draws throughout that period, including a 0-0 draw with Sunderland and a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace – two sides that are fighting to avoid relegation.
Meanwhile Manchester City has improved in the back half of the season but they will enter this match full of disappointment after falling to Real Madrid midweek and being knocked out of the Champions League. The side lacked the ability to create chances as they had just two quality chances throughout the entire match and those two shots failed to hit the target. However, their form has been terrific in the Premier League recently but they did lose to Southampton last week albeit they had seven members of their original squad on the sidelines as they rested for Real Madrid. They will be back at full strength this weekend and it should be an entertaining encounter.
Arsenal got the win in the corresponding contest last season in impressive fashion as they pulled off a 2-0 victory. We are expecting Manchester City to come out flat after their disappointment of missing the Champions League final and the Gunners will capitalise and hold on for the win.
