Spurs to win
Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur 1-2
At the turn of the year, you’d have thought this match would be a potential shootout for a Champions League spot. However, Spurs’ quick decline has seen them drop out of contention altogether, and with Leicester’s recent dip in form, we could be soon saying the same about them.
The Foxes need to beat Tottenham and hope one of Liverpool or Chelsea drop points to be guaranteed a place in the top four. Neither side have been at their best in the Premier League recently, and I can’t help but think back to last season when the Foxes threw away another great opportunity to play alongside Europe’s elite.
Brendan Rodgers’ men don’t seem to cope well in these pressurised situations, and I think Spurs men may sense that and pick up a final day win on the road.
Manchester United to win 1-0
Wolves v Manchester United 0-1
Wolves have been decent enough for most of the season, although I do feel they’d have done much better if Raul Jiménez hadn’t sustained that awful head injury early on.
United will finish higher than many expected. The Red Devils’ glorious away form is a huge positive to take away from the campaign, and I think back on their travels, they’ll take another three points here.
West Ham to win & btts
West Ham United v Southampton 2-1
There won’t be any Champions League football to play for West Ham next season, however, it’s still been an excellent campaign for the Hammers.
They need just a point from this match to secure fifth place and Europa League football next season, and given that Southampton look a bit jaded, I think that’s just what they’ll do.
Sheffield United v Burnley 1-1
Sheffield United’s fate was sealed long ago, but with the shackles off, they have seen a slight upturn in results. For Burnley, they started the campaign with loads of injuries, so they must be applauded for turning it round.
The Clarets have drawn a lot of games this year, and given the circumstances, I think both may settle for a point in this one.
Newcastle to win & btts
Fulham v Newcastle United 1-2
These two were big relegations rivals in the run-in, but it was Newcastle who pulled it out the bag with a few huge results to keep them safe.
The Magpies have continued to play well, and up against a Fulham side that gave so much only to get nothing in return, I think this one will end in an away win.
Leeds to win & btts
Leeds United v West Brom 3-1
What a season it has been for Leeds fans. There has never been a dull moment, with the highlight being their terrific 2-1 win at the Etihad with only 10 men.
West Brom travel here knowing that after these 90 minutes, they’ll be playing Championship football next season. Sam Allardyce won’t be sticking around, so you get the feeling they’ll want to get this match out the way and move on.
With that in mind, there’s only one winner for me. I’m expecting Leeds to end the season on a high with a comfortable win.
Under 2.5 goals
Arsenal v Brighton 1-0
It’s been a season of ups and downs for Arsenal fans. It started off promisingly, but quite quickly cracks started to appear.
That said, they have won their last four Premier League matches, and up against a Brighton side that look a bit tired, I think the Gunners’ will end the season with a fifth victory in a row.
Chelsea to win to nil
Aston Villa v Chelsea 0-2
Despite having a couple of poor results in recent weeks, Chelsea must be happy with their campaign overall, especially the second half.
Blues’ fans have a UEFA Champions League final to look forward to next week, however, before then they must win here to be certain of their position in the Champions League.
As I said, their form of late has slipped slightly, however, if they turn up at their best, I think they’ll win this one.
Mo Salah to score anytime
Liverpool v Crystal Palace 2-1
The Reds only need to match Leicester’s result to secure a top four finish. What’s more, they will finish third if they better Chelsea’s result.
It’s been some turnaround from the Reds. Injuries hit them hard in the first half of the season, so next year, with a fully fit squad, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to challenge for the title once more.
Before that, however, this is a must win match. Up against a Palace side that have nothing to play for, I think they’ll get the job done. It’s 2-1 Liverpool for me.
