English Premier League: Gameweek 28 Preview

What a Premier League campaign it is turning out to be. Apart from Liverpool’s dominance at the top of the standings, its looking like one of the most entertaining seasons we’ve come across in recent years with seven teams left to fight for two UEFA Champions League spots. One win can take you a couple of places up the table, while defeat could set you back even further at this crucial stage of the season. Super Sunday is our main focus as the race for the UEFA spots heats up with Everton hosting Manchester United, while Wolves travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur.

Friday 28 February 

Norwich City 33/10
Draw 29/10
Leicester City 15/20

Rock-bottom Norwich City will be hoping to get their season back on track just in time for their survival push as the Canaries lie seven points off safety. Norwich have won plenty Premier League lovers over with their expansive brand of football; however, the results haven’t been forthcoming. Leicester City’s winless run in the league stretched to three games, although they do come off a hectic schedule, losing against Manchester City after draws against Chelsea and Wolves. With Norwich struggling at the wrong end of the table, now should be the perfect time for the Foxes to return to winning ways. Back the visitors here at 15/20.

Sunday 29 February 

Brighton 11/10
Draw 9/4
Crystal Palace 28/10

Brighton and Crystal Palace do battle in the early kick-off on Saturday with both teams looking close to their target of 40 points. Brighton sit in 15th spot with 28 points, while the Eagles moved up to 13th place after their 1-0 win over Newcastle last weekend. Brighton are winless in seven league matches, but are unbeaten in their last four home encounters. Palace, on the other hand, are without an away victory in six outings. Because of their brilliant home record, losing just three times all season, I fancy Brighton here.

Newcastle United 31/20
Draw 21/10
Burnley 39/20

Newcastle United seem to have hit a stumbling block in their season, failing to win in any of their last four encounters, while they haven’t scored in their last three ties. The Toon Army’s home form has also left a lot to be desired, winning just five times in 13 matches. Burnley moved up into the top half of the table after their superb unbeaten run stretched to five league matches. In that period, the Clarets have claimed four victories, including two on the bounce. At 5/10, the Away Win/Draw Double Chance offers decent value – get on!

Bournemouth 37/10
Draw 28/10
Chelsea 15/20

Bournemouth have been in disappointing form over the past couple of weeks, but will return to the Vitality Stadium, where they’ve won back-to-back games in the league. They’ve also been a hoodoo side to Chelsea in recent meetings, winning this fixture 4-0 last season, while the Cherries also claimed a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge earlier this campaign. After a run of four games without victory, Frank Lampard’s men emerged victorious in the London derby, beating Tottenham 2-1, while also becoming the first coach to do the double over Jose Mourinho. After giving themselves some breathing space in fourth spot, the Blues will know how important each win will be from now until the end of the season. Back the visitors at 15/20.

West Ham 17/10
Draw 5/2
Southampton 15/10

West Ham United were incredibly unlucky against Liverpool on Monday night, losing 3-2 at Anfield after leading 2-1 at some stage of the second half. The Hammers were brave in their approach and stayed in the game for 90 minutes, they perhaps could have got more from the tie had it not been for a sloppy Lukasz Fabianski error. Southampton picked up a much-needed home victory over Aston Villa last weekend, claiming a 2-0 win at St. Mary’s. Away from home, the Saints have been dominant as well, winning four of their last five trips in the league, losing to Liverpool, although they did beat Leicester City and Chelsea. My money is on Over 2.5 Goals at 7/10.

Watford 57/10
Draw 37/10
Liverpool 9/20

It seems like it’s going to get worse before it gets better for Watford as they entertain Liverpool at Vicarage Road. The Hornets were battered to pieces against Manchester United last weekend, losing 3-0. Liverpool showed great fight and character on Monday night, which justified why the Reds are on their way to becoming champions of England. Jurgen Klopp’s men were trailing 2-1 in the second half against West Ham, but you always knew that it was a matter of time that they’re going to turn things around and win the match. You barely get Liverpool at a price of 9/20; I say take full advantage of it and back them to claim yet another victory under their belt.

Sunday 1 March 

Everton 15/10
Draw 23/10
Manchester United 37/20

There were positive signs for Carlo Ancelotti and Everton last weekend, despite losing 3-2 at Arsenal. The Toffees welcomed back Andre Gomes after his lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury, while the front duo of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin were menacing as always. Manchester United were back to their best against Watford last weekend, with new signing, Bruno Fernandes, in the thick of things for the Red Devils, netting his first goal for the club. The Portuguese superstar makes everything tick for United, but having played their second leg of the UEFA Europa League tie on Thursday, it could take some sting out of their bite for the weekend. Ancelotti is also unbeaten on home soil since becoming Everton boss. I’ll put my money on the Home/Draw Double Chance & Over 2.5 Goals at 2/1.

Tottenham 27/20
Draw 9/4
Wolves 43/20

Tottenham Hotspur’s season looks to be under scrutiny as many fans and pundits await to see how they will perform over the remainder of the season without Heung-min Son and Harry Kane, who are out due to injury. Wolves have been superb in recent weeks, keeping three clean sheets in a row. They play their second leg UEFA Europa League encounter on Thursday, but wrapped up the tie in the first leg, so they can focus solely on this fixture. Diogo Jota, Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore are in scintillating form, while Wolves’ backline has been rock-solid. The away win looks a solid value bet at 43/20, certainly worth a punt!

DOUBLE @ 8/1
Everton Win/Draw & Over 2.5 Goals 2/1
Wolves Win 43/20
