Hull Vs Liverpool
Hull City gave their survival bid a huge boost with a timely 0-2 win away at Crystal Palace on Saturday. The Tigers avoided a fourth consecutive defeat which would have landed them in the bottom three and kept their first clean sheet since mid March. Liverpool were unable to break through against West Brom and ended up sharing the spoils in a 0-0 stalemate on Saturday. The Reds could live to rue those two points dropped as Manchester United lost at Everton on Sunday.
Leicester Vs Chelsea
Leicester City have hit form at the perfect moment and have now dragged themselves out of the Relegation Zone following their fouth consecutive Premier League win. The Foxes have only conceded once in their last three matches at home but face a daunting task when Champions-elect Chelsea visit on Wednesday night. The Blues carried out their game plan perfectly when they held Arsenal 0-0 at The Emirates on Sunday. Mourinho’s side were also unfortunate to not be awarded a penalty when Fabregas was caught in the box. Chelsea are just 5 points from the title and will hope to pick up 3 of them on Wednesday evening.
Southampton Vs Spurs
Southampton were defeated when they visited Stoke in Gameweek 33. The Saints have been in Jekyll and Hyde form winning three on the bounce at home but picking up just a single point from their last four road matches. Tottenham picked up an impressive win on the road at Newcastle on Sunday. Harry Kane got back on the scoresheet by sealing the points for Tottenham who are still in the hunt for a Europa League berth for next term.
Burnley Vs Leicester
Burnley fell to the foot of the Premier League table as a result of their 1-0 defeat at Everton and Leicester picking up three points on Saturday. The Clarets have lost three of their last four and need to turn around their form if they are to retain Premier League status. Leicester have won three Premier League matches on the trot to give their survival hopes a huge boost. The Foxes had been written off by some but are just one point from safety heading into Gameweek 34.
Crystal Palace Vs Hull
Crystal Palace saw their four match winning streak grind to a halt when they were unexpectedly beaten by West Brom at Selhurst Park. The Eagles sit in the bottom half of the table but would love to finish in the Top 10 to cap a memorable turnaround since the appointment of Alan Pardew is manager. Hull have been in a poor run of form which has seen them dragged into the Relegation scrap. Only goal difference is keeping The Tigers out of the Relegation Zone heading into this fixture.
Newcastle Vs Swansea
Newcastle United fans staged a protest ahead of their previous match against Spurs and the team delivered a limp performance to add fuel to the fire. The Magpies have lost six matches in a row and a chronic lack of investment in the side has seen fans vote with their feet. Swansea went down 2-0 at Leicester City in Gameweek 33 on Saturday. The Swans have enjoyed an excellent campaign under Garry Monk despite losing lead forward Bony in January and will want to end the Season in positive fashion.
QPR Vs West Ham
Queens Park Rangers enjoyed a weekend off due to opponents’ Cup commitments to give themselves extra time to prepare for this fixture. The R’s sit in the Relegation Zone heading into this clash and need to improve their home form which has seen them lose 6 in a row at Loftus Road. West Ham visit their rivals looking to cement their place in the Top 10. Unfortunately it seems that despite an excellent tenure, Sam Allardyce is somewhat under-appreciated by the Hammers faithful.
Stoke Vs Sunderland
Stoke picked up another home win after seeing off Southampton 2-1 last weekend. The Potters are having a trademark Season playing effective football which sees them in the top half of the Premier League table heading into this fixture. Sunderland took great pride in reminding Newcastle fans of their five consecutive Derby wins but The Magpies could have the last laugh if The Black Cats get relegated.
West Brom Vs Liverpool
West Brom returned to winning ways with a good win away at Crystal Palace. Tony Pulis will be pleased with the performance and clean sheet which will surely guarantee another year in the Premier League. The Baggies host a demoralised Liverpool side who did not show up against Aston Villa in the Semi Final of the FA Cup. Liverpool’s chances of 4th place are all but gone and they are now playing for a Europa League berth at best.
Manchester City Vs Aston Villa
This promises to be a very good game with both sides looking for valuable points at opposite ends of the table. Manchester City finally got back to winning ways against West Ham in a convincing 2-0 victory with Sergio Aguero scoring his first goal in 5 months at the Etihad from open play. Manchester City need to win this game at all costs to cement 4th place in the Premier League. Aston Villa are on a high. A brilliant performance against Tottenham saw them carry their momentum into their FA Cup Semi Final against Liverpool. They showed great resilence to come from behind and win 2-1 to book a Wembley date against Arsenal. Benteke is in tremendous form and Villa will also welcome back Sanchez and Aghbonlohor.
Everton Vs Manchester United
Everton have finally found the form which many expected them to display throughout the Season following theirt achievements last term. The Toffees have won four of their last five but remain in the bottom half of the Premier League due to their awful start to the campaign. Manchester United had been in great form before they travelled to Stamford Bridge and lost 1-0 to the Champions-elect. The Red Devils will look to bounce back immediately to keep pace with Arsenal and City in an effort to finish in the Top 3. Exciting match expected – All square at Goodison.
Arsenal Vs Chelsea
Arsenal are the form team who seem unstoppable right now. Unfortunately for The Gunners this kind of form is usually witnessed when the Premier League is out of reach and the pressure is off. Arsenal have conceded just two goals in their last six Premier League matches at The Emirates and will give Chelsea a very stern test. The Blues will be brimming with confidence after they took a giant stride towards winning the Premier League against Manchester United on Sunday. Eden Hazard was the difference between the two sides and Arsenal will need to be at their best to keep the Belgian playmaker quiet. Home win expected at The Emirates.
