Cardiff vs Chelsea
Chelsea are still in with a distant chance of second place if Liverpool lose, so probably have more to play for and Cardiff have been utterly woeful under Solskjaer, so it’s hard to see anything other than a Chelsea win here at 4/9.
Fulham v Crystal Palace
Fulham have surrendered rather meekly in recent weeks, many players will be leaving and the last bits of spirit appeared to sap away last week, Palace look a rather meaty 19/10 to get an away win here and crown a brilliant second half of the season under Pulis.
Hull v Everton
Hull have faded badly in recent weeks, relying on others below them to lose to make them safe from relegation. Everton have also dropped off a little and are secure in 5th place, so both sides have little but pride to play for, with Hull’s players already probably having their minds on next week’s FA Cup Final. the draw at 13/5 looks the bet here.
Liverpool v Newcastle
Hard to see anything other than a home win here, Liverpool will be desperate to put City under some pressure and with the Anfield crowd behind them they should have far too much in every department for a Newcastle side who have tamely faded in the second half of this season, with Pardew under massive pressure. It’s a skinny price at 2/9, but the home win is the only choice here.
Man City v West Ham
If you fancy West Ham to spoil the party you can get a massive 17/1, it seems very unlikely though and the choice again has to be City here to take the title in front of their home fans. There may be a few nerves, but the end result will probably be similar to the Aston Villa game on Saturday with most of West Ham’s players wanting to be on the beach. City at 2/11 is the choice.
Norwich v Arsenal
Both sides have nothing to play for, Norwich are now relegated and Arsenal are secure in 4th and will be looking to avoid injuries for next week’s cup final. Arsenal still look like they could do the business here though against a rudderless Norwich who have looked forlorn under rookie manager Neil Adams. Arsenal look a fairly big 10/11 to do the business here.
Southampton v Man United
An interesting match up, both again only got pride to play for though United could get up to 6th place if Spurs lose at home to Villa. United will probably give some of their youngsters a run out again, but this won’t be as easy as Hull in midweek and we think Southampton’s players will probably be up for this to cap a very decent season by beating United at home. Take them at 13/8 to win.
Sunderland v Swansea
The mood at the Stadium of Light will be celebratory with Poyet and his men having pulled off a miracle escape from relegation. Both sides now have little to play for so a draw could be the order of the day here between 2 sides who may now take their foot off the gas. Take the draw at 12/5.
Tottenham v Aston Villa
Tottenham will be looking to hold on to 6th place and the extra prize money, Aston Villa did well for 60 minutes at City but they have injuries to key men such as Benteke and Agbonlahor and look to be lacking in experience. Take Spurs to win this at 8/15.
West Brom v Stoke
West Brom just about did enough to survive, probably relying more on the poor performances of the relegated sides than anything brilliant on their account. Mark Hughes’ Stoke side have been flying in the last couple of months and we feel like they might just put on one more show here to end the season in style. Take them at a chunky 29/10 to pull off the away win.
