Premier League Predictions | Matchday 35 (and change)


 

A special treat for the Easter holidays from the Premier League with matches starting at lunch-time today with Man City looking for revenge against Spurs after their Champions' League clash midweek and running all the way through to the Manchester derby on Wednesday evening. The title race could look very, very, very different by the next round of games.


Saturday 20th April, 12:30pm kick-off

Manchester City 3-1 Tottenham Hotspur

I expect City to gain their revenge, but it won't make up for what happened in the last game.


Saturday 20th April, 3pm kick-off

Bournemouth 2-0 Fulham

Fulham are down and won't have the fight to deny a Bournemouth side usually pretty decent at home.


Huddersfield Town 0-2 Watford

Identical to above, the home side are down and their terrible home form certainly didn't help matters.


West Ham United 1-1 Leicester City

Two teams in mid-table safety with nothing to play for except pride, so I can see them cancelling each other out.


Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton are sliding fast and Wolves will help to hasten their descent.


Saturday 20th April, 5:30pm kick-off

Newcastle United 2-0 Southampton

Neither of these teams are safe yet, but I expect the Magpies to do the job thanks to their superior defence.


Sunday 21st April, 1:30pm kick-off

Everton 2-2 Manchester United

The Red Devils will not have enjoyed midweek and I can see Everton making sure their mood doesn't completely brighten here.


Sunday 21st April, 4pm kick-off

Arsenal 2-0 Crystal Palace

The Gunners are great at home and Palace are terrible away - should be a regulation 3 points for the home team.


Cardiff City 0-3 Liverpool

Similar to above, Cardiff are poor and Liverpool are (annoyingly) good - an easy win for the Reds.


Monday 22nd April, 8pm kick-off

Chelsea 2-0 Burnley

Yet another lop-sided fixture and yet another comfortable win for the better side involved.


Tuesday 23rd April, 7:45pm kick-off

Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

Yep, same here too.


Watford 3-1 Southampton

This result will depend on two things: 1) Watford wanting to stay fresh for the FA Cup final; 2) how much trouble Southampton are in after their previous game - basing it off how good each side have been this season, Watford should win.


Wednesday 24th April, 7:45pm kick-off

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Arsenal

Arsenal's poor away form to haunt them again, especially against a Wolves side who have proven a thorny opponent for the top teams this season.


Wednesday 24th April, 8pm kick-off

Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City

A lose-lose situation for Man Utd: whatever the result, one of Liverpool or Man City benefit - who do they hate most, and who can they most tolerate winning the league?

 

Here's how my predictions for the season so far - including those above - would leave the table looking after this set of fixtures.
