Another week, another massive slate of EPL games to look forward to! There will be two full matchdays played out over the next seven days, with Matchday 34 beginning on Wednesday morning (AEST) before Matchday 35 kicks off on Saturday night.
We will be bringing you a full preview and betting tips for the key games in both rounds throughout the week, starting with our best bets for MD34 below.
Selhurst Park, Wednesday July 8th, 3am (AEST)
The Blues captured a crucial win in Matchday 33, downing Watford at home 3-0 as Olivier Giroud, Willian and Ross Barkley all found the back of the net. The win moves keeps them two points ahead of Manchester United and moves them a full five points ahead of Wolverhampton. Chelsea are currently hanging onto fourth place by the barest of margins and will be desperate to keep winning to ensure they qualify for the UCL next season.
Leicester City are the other side fighting to stay in the top four, and Crystal Palace have the unfortunate task of facing Leicester and Chelsea within the span of a few days. Palace went down to the Foxes 3-0 on Sunday morning and since the return of the EPL, they have a 1-0-3 record, losing their last three games with a 8-0 combined goal aggregate.
Can’t see Palace being very competitive here given their current form, even at home. They have had a tough road over the past three games, facing Liverpool, Burnley and Leicester but it doesn’t get any easier here as they face an in form Blues side.
Bramall Lans, Thursday July 9th, 3am (AEST)
After dropping points to Arsenal in Matchday 33, this is an absolute must win if the Wolves hope to qualify for the Champions League next season. They currently sit five points behind Chelsea in fourth place with just five games to play. They’ll likely need to win their next four games to set up a potential final day showdown with Chelsea for the final spot in the top four.
Sheffield were solid against Burnley in Matchday 33, securing a 1-1 draw away from home. They have no doubt been the over-achievers ov the EPL season so far, currently sitting in 8th place in their first season back in the Premier League.
Tough match to call. One thing that is for sure is that these two teams don’t allow a lot of goals. At just 36 and 33 foals allowed respectively, the two teams both sit in the top five in the league in this category, and the Wolves in particular have been stout in defence, allowing just two goals in four games since the season resumed.
Villa Park, Friday July 10th, 5.15am (AEST)
Manchester United sit just two points behind Chelsea in the race to quflify for the Champions League and will look to continue their three game winning streak at Villa Park on Friday morning. They secured a monster 5-2 win over Bournemouth in Matchday 33 and have a great matchup against an Aston Villa side that has won just one of their last 10.
Villa were resolute for the first half of their MD33 matchup against Liverpool, but the Reds piled on two second half goals two down Villa 2-0 at home. Villa are desperate for any points they can get at the moment, as they currently sit inside the relegation zone by just one point. Their problem is they face quality sides in Man U, Everton and Arsenal all in the last five games.
With so much on the line, there is no way that Manchester United drop points here. After the 5-2 drubbing they handed out to Bournemouth, expect them to come out with similar will to win and handle Villa comfortably.
