Matchday 25 Picks: EPL Predictions and Game of the Week Preview

Premier League Matchday 25 Picks

Leicester 2-1 Chelsea

Bournemouth 1-1 Aston Villa

Crystal Palace 0-0 Sheffield United

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton

Newcastle 2-0 Norwich

Watford 1-1 Everton

West Ham 1-0 Brighton

Manchester United 1-0 Wolves

Burnley 1-3 Arsenal

Tottenham 2-2 Manchester City

Summary

Leicester vs Chelsea and Tottenham vs Manchester City will receive most of the focus, but if West Ham lose to Brighton this weekend, the Londoners will become serious relegation candidates. The bookies have already moved them into 4th favourites, behind Norwich, Bournemouth and Norwich, with the latter already looking doomed. Newcastle should all but cement their EPL status by beating Norwich at St James Park.

The Champions League race sees all of the six candidates facing each other this weekend, with 5th placed Manchester United hosting 7th placed Wolves, 6th placed Tottenham hosting 2nd placed Manchester City and placed 3rd placed Leicester hosting 4th placed Chelsea. Arsenal currently aren’t in the conversation, but Mikel Arteta still believes his team can go a run and challenge, and it could start with the Gunner’s 12th win a row over Burnley- a team they owned in recent times.

Games of the Week: Tottenham vs Manchester City

This should be a high scoring affair, as Manchester City have seen both teams score in nine of their 12 Premier League away games this Season. Tottenham have averaged 1.92 goals per home game, with Man City averaging 2.82 goals per away game.

Incredibly, Spurs’ top four challenge still seems to be on despite a very below par campaign. Spurs have had a difficult time of things since the festive period, but their victory over Norwich last Gameweek, ended a run of four winless Premier League matches. The combined XI is predictably dominated by Manchester City players, but that hasn’t counted for much lately, with Spurs knocking City out of the Champions League last year, and getting themselves an away draw earlier this season.

Prediction-

Man City have scored in 23 consecutive Premier League away games, and they’re facing a Spurs side who’s defence has massively declined, supported by the fact that they have conceded in 10 of their 12 Premier League home games this season. However, with Spurs still averaging 1.92 goals per game, backing Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 @ 20/21, definitely seems like the safest way to bet this one.

PICK: Tottenham 2 Manchester City 2
