English Premier League: Gameweek 37 Preview

Manchester United players celebrate a goal

We’re into the penultimate round of the world’s most competitive league. However, it’s been anything but that. Manchester City have dominated from start to finish, leaving dust in the shadows for the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal. City will receive their third guard of honour since being crowned champions when they host Huddersfield, while the Premier League’s other giants also have a massive say on what goes down at the bottom, with Spurs travelling to West Brom, and United making the trip up to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton. In terms of magnitude and the size of each fixture, Chelsea taking on Liverpool certainly catches the eye, however, Stoke City’s clash against Crystal Palace definitely holds more significance in who actually stays up. It’s all going down in gameweek 37!

Friday 4 May

Brighton 17/4  
Draw 3/1 
Manchester United 13/20 
(21:00)

Brighton’s winless run was stretched to six games in the Premier League, however, they’re still in a fairly comfortable position to stay up in the league. Manchester United sealed a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League when they humbled Arsenal to a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford last weekend. Jose Mourinho’s men showed their strength in depth when they called upon Marouane Fellaini to head home in stoppage time to boost their chances of finishing second. Despite being criticized for being lacklustre and boring, United get the results they need. Back the visitors here at 13/20.

Saturday 5 May

Stoke City 31/20 
Draw 9/4 
Crystal Palace 37/20 
(13:30)

Stoke City fought hard to earn a goalless draw at Anfield against Liverpool last weekend. That was the Potters’ third consecutive stalemate, with Mark Hughes’ men now three points away from safety. Crystal Palace come into this tie with their heads held high. The Eagles smashed five past 10-man Leicester City to move further up the table and away from danger. Roy Hodgson’s men are just one win away from safety, while Stoke have a mountain to climb in their pursuit of avoiding the drop. This one is probably the toughest to call, but I’m backing Palace to come out on top – meaning it’s the end of the road for Stoke.

Bournemouth 12/10 
Draw 24/10 
Swansea 47/20 
(16:00)

Bournemouth will look to end a run of three consecutive defeats when they host relegation-threatened Swansea this Saturday. The Cherries had a massive influence at the foot of the table last weekend when they were defeated 2-1 at Southampton. Swansea will be eyeing a return to winning ways after defeats to Man City and Chelsea. The Swans’ disappointing form in recent weeks has seen them dragged back into a relegation scramble. With the home side looking far from convincing, I’m tipping Swansea to come good and make this season’s relegation battle all the more exciting.

Watford 29/20  
Draw 23/10 
Newcastle 2/1 
(16:00)

Watford return to Vicarage Road where they will look to claim their first victory in three games. The Hornets have been inconsistent at their turf, losing, drawing and winning six apiece. Newcastle suffered their second defeat in a row when bottom-placed West Brom walked away with maximum points – a game in which the Toon dominated throughout. Both teams have lacked scoring in recent weeks, but that is often unheard of when they come up against each other. Over 2.5 Goals is tipped here at even money.

West Brom 13/2 
Draw 39/10 
Tottenham 4/10 
(16:00)

Darren Moore’s remarkable run with West Brom will be put to the test once again when Tottenham Hotspur come to town. Albion are unbeaten in four games, winning two – in that run, they managed four points over Manchester United and Liverpool. West Brom know that they won’t have it easy against Spurs, who are undefeated in their last nine away matches. Mauricio Pochettino’s men will also be looking to seal their top four spot, while Harry Kane has the Golden Boot in his range. Despite West Brom’s superb run of form, Spurs should claim maximum points.

Leicester City 12/10  
Draw 49/20 
West Ham 9/4 
(16:00)

In the past four weeks, Leicester City have been far from easy on the eye. They’re winless in their last four encounters, losing three times, resulting in immense pressure for Claude Puel. The Foxes come off the back of an embarrassing 5-0 defeat at Crystal Palace and will need to be at their best to turn things around against West Ham. David Moyes’ men suffered their second 4-1 defeat in a row when they hosted champions, Manchester City, last Sunday. This one will be tough to pick a winner, but Both Teams to Score seems like the most possible outcome – get on at 7/10.

Everton 18/10  
Draw 9/4 
Southampton 16/10 
(18:30)

Everton could seal a spot in the top half when they host Southampton, who are fighting for survival down at the foot end of the table. The Toffees head into this one in superb form, riding an unbeaten streak of four games, keeping clean sheets in three of those encounters. Southampton could jump out of the red zone, depending on results elsewhere, should they claim maximum points at Goodison Park. Neither side can be really ruthless in attack, hence why I’ll be backing Under 2.5 Goals here at 7/10.

Sunday 6 May

Manchester City 1/12 
Draw  19/2 
Huddersfield 30/1 
(14:30)

Champions, Manchester City, host Huddersfield on Sunday with more records in sight, waiting to be broken. Pep Guardiola showed that rotation is the key in the final stages of his team’s illustrious season, with Vincent Kompany and David Silva both given the weekend off last time out. Huddersfield paid for their sloppy performance when they were humbled to a 2-0 defeat at home to Everton. You get the feeling that this is a type of fixture that City could win by five or six if they’re in the mood. At 7/10, the champions are well worth a punt to Win By Three Or More Goals.

Chelsea 11/10  
Draw 51/20
Liverpool 49/20

Arsenal 11/20  
Draw 32/10 
Burnley 47/10 
(17:30)

Arsenal were unlucky not to hold on to their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last weekend, with Fellaini leaping highest to spear wounds into the Gunners’ heart. That meant that Arsenal’s dismal away form continued as they’re yet to pick up a point on the road in 2018. However, at home, Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last four encounters, scoring a minimum of three goals per game. Burnley failed to claim maximum points against a Brighton side there for the taking last weekend. That result meant that the Clarets are winless in their last three games. Back the home win here and include in all multiples.

QUAD @ 5/1
Man United Win 13/20
Tottenham Win 4/10
Man City Win By 3 Or More 7/10
Arsenal Win 11/20
