Premier League Predictions | Matchday 36 - The End is Near


 

Ten games in three days this week for the Premier League, with all the delayed fixtures now caught up and leaving all teams really going head-to-head. What's really surprising is that very little has been completely settled yet, with one last relegation slot to be decided, Champions' League places up for grabs and - of course - the title is still on the line.


Friday 26th April, 8pm kick-off

Liverpool 3-0 Huddersfield Town

This should be an easy game for Liverpool, and I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to score double what I've predicted


Saturday 27th April, 12:30pm kick-off

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 West Ham United

I think West Ham might have enough to unsettle Spurs, but unfortunately be unable to stop them continuing their 100% record in their new (toilet-shaped) stadium.


Saturday 27th April, 3pm kick-off

Crystal Palace 3-1 Everton

Both sides had big wins last weekend, but Everton have struggled on the road this season and it would be typical for them to slump straight away.


Fulham 2-1 Cardiff City

One relegated side possibly sealing another's fate? There's no pressure on Fulham now and I can see them taking advantage of Cardiff's nerves.


Southampton 1-0 Bournemouth

Bournemouth have typically been very poor away from home this season, so I can see Southampton edging their way to a more comfortable distance from the relegation zone.


Watford 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Two sides that have had surprisingly good seasons - Wolves may edge this depending on how much Watford have their eyes on the FA Cup final.


Saturday 27th April, 5:30pm kick-off

Brighton & Hove Albion 0-0 Newcastle United

I think the home team will be desperate for any kind of result that isn't a defeat, and Newcastle will be very happy with that for an away game too.


Sunday 28th April, 12:00pm kick-off

Leicester City 1-0 Arsenal

Arsenal's poor away form will continue to haunt them and I think it could be even more comfortable for the Foxes than I've predicted.


Sunday 28th April, 2:05pm kick-off

Burnley 0-2 Manchester City

I think the home team will put up a solid fight, but the gap in quality is too great for them to stop City taking all three points.


Sunday 28th April, 4:30pm kick-off

Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

This game could really go in any direction with both sides wanting that top four spot, but I think the fear of defeat and zero points might override the desire to go all-out for a win.

 

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