Arsenal vs Brighton

The final round of the Premier League season is finally here and it's a mixed bag of crucial fixtures and borderline non-events. Arsenal play Brighton in one of the 4pm BST kick-offs on Sunday afternoon at the Emirates Stadium and with the home team still in with an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa Conference League then this one of those matches where something is at stake.

Arsenal have generally had a season to forget. The highs of the FA Cup win last season is now a distant memory and the fans are now calling for Mikel Arteta to leave if the Gunners miss out on European competition for the first time since the 1995/96 season. Recent form has given optimism for next season though with the club having won their last 4 league games leaving the team in 9th place and just 1 point off the Europa Conference League qualification spot of 7th place currently held by local rivals Tottenham. Arteta will want the team to win this one. Failure to do so will result in them ending with the club's worst Premier League points tally. History could be on their side with Arsenal not losing their last league game of a season since the 2004/05 campaign.

Brighton know that preparations for next season have already started. The Seagulls are down in 16th position but have known for a couple of weeks now that their place in next season's top flight is safe. It'll be a time for reflection for the Albion hierarchy who will be wondering what could have been if they hadn't wasted so many chances in the final third. There is an opportunity for Brighton to finish with their best ever Premier League points total if they win or draw this game. They can also achieve a club top flight record of six away league wins in a single season with a win here.

Based on their current form, you might be forgiven for thinking that Arsenal are the firm favourites here but when you look at the head-to-head record you might want to re-think that opinion. Arsenal have only won 2 of the last 7 meetings between the two clubs. This is the exact sort of game that Arsenal have dropped points in this season. Brighton will likely make this a tricky affair for the home team but I still think Arsenal are in a decent run of form right now so should get the win.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea

The battle for the Champions League qualification spots is one of the big talking points ahead of this weekend's final batch of Premier League games and one of those games that will go a long way to determining which teams finish in the top four is the clash between Aston Villa and Chelsea in a 4pm BST start on Sunday afternoon at Villa Park. Can the away side win to guarantee their place at European football's top table next season?

Aston Villa have had a season to be proud of with the club in 11th place heading into the last round of league matches. That's not a bad improvement on being relegation candidates. Dean Smith will be pleased that Jack Grealish has made a successful return to action and it's probably no surprise that with him back in the team the Lions secured a 2-1 win away to Tottenham last weekend. Ross Barkley is ineligible to face his parent club which is a blow. Only Chelsea and Manchester City have kept more clean sheets than Aston Villa in the league this season. Ollie Watkins could be worth an anytime scorer bet having scored 8 goals this season against the "established top six" teams.

Chelsea will be keen to end this league campaign on a high after the disappointment of losing the FA Cup Final to Leicester last weekend. Head coach Thomas Tuchel knows his team have a big Champions League Final coming up next weekend against Manchester City but if they fail to finish in the top four and fail to win either cup final that they reached then a season that briefly promised so much could end in nothing. The Blues need to win or simply match Liverpool or Leicester's result to qualify for next season's Champions League. They have only suffered defeat once on the final day in the past 9 seasons. Chelsea are unbeaten in 12 away games across all competitions under Tuchel.

To be honest, I can't see this ending up in anything other than a solid Chelsea win. Aston Villa will love having Grealish back but just as he returns they're denied the chance to field him and Barkley against this Chelsea midfield. I think the Chelsea performance against Leicester in the league showed that the FA Cup Final loss hurt and I think we'll see more of that grit and determination to seek retribution here.

Fulham vs Newcastle

Well, if things had gone another way over the final couple of months of the Premier League season then we could have one hell of a slobber knocker on our hands with this game. Unfortunately, it was not to be. Fulham play Newcastle in a 4pm BST kick-off on Sunday afternoon with the home side already facing next season in the Championship and the away team having secured their place in the top flight next year.

Fulham have failed to achieve their ambition of staying up in the top flight of English football this season. Scott Parker's side had put in a resilient period over Christmas and into the New Year but it wasn't enough as a terrible start and awful end to their campaign contributed to the team's current situation of 18th place and 11 points adrift of safety heading into the last round of league matches. The Cottagers will be without the trio of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Tom Cairney, and Antonee Robinson. There is a risk that the team could set an unwanted Premier League record of fewest league goals scored at home with their current tally of 9 goals. They must score here to avoid that awful record. It's no win in their last 9 league games including 7 defeats.

Newcastle have ended their season on a relative high. Steve Bruce's men are in 15th place after just 2 defeats in their last 8 league games. The Magpies had looked in danger of being sucked into the relegation dogfight but the return to fitness of key duo Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson has helped see a return to form. 4 wins in their last 7 league games shows how they're now starting to pick up the victories and they're unbeaten in their last 3 away league matches. History is also on their side with Newcastle having won the final league game of the season in 5 of the previous 6 campaigns.

It's hard to imagine where Fulham are finding the motivation to go all out at the moment. The squad is full of loan players who won't be with the club next season, high wage earners who are likely to be sold to free up transfer funds, and players who are set to play Championship football with the club next season because they weren't good enough this season. Newcastle, on the other hand, will be buzzing that they're staying up and will want to prove a point here. I can see a narrow Newcastle win in this one.

Leeds vs West Brom

The race for the Europa Conference League is still on and this next fixture includes one team still with an outside chance of gate crashing the qualification party for that competition. It's Leeds versus West Brom in a 4pm BST kick-off on Sunday afternoon from Elland Road with the home team hoping to be playing in Europe next season against an away side resigned to playing Championship football next campaign.

Leeds have won a lot of admirers over the past few seasons under the enigmatic Marcelo Bielsa. The Whites head into this game in 10th place but only 3 points behind 7th placed Tottenham who currently occupy the Europa Conference League qualification position. A 15-goal swing plus Tottenham, Everton and Arsenal losing is required but it's still mathematically possible! Recent form has been class for the Yorkshire club with only Liverpool earning more points than Leeds over the last 10 league games with the club only losing 1 of those 10 league games. There is a chance for them to earn 4 straight league wins in the Premier League for the first time since 2002. Their tally of 59 goals is a Premier League record for a newly promoted club in a 38-game campaign.

West Brom are going down with a whimper. The Baggies are in 19th spot and their tragic season was confounded by the random rant by Sam Allardyce after their 3-1 loss at home to West Ham in midweek. Allardyce confirmed he was set to leave the club and the team must now start from scratch back in the second tier. It's been 3 league defeats in a row as the team draw their disappointing season to a close in depressing fashion. 8 goals conceded in their last 3 league games shows their defence has well and truly buckled since relegation was confirmed. An unwanted historical fact is that West Brom haven't won any of their final league games from their last 12 seasons.

Head-to-head meetings certainly show an advantage for Leeds with them remaining unbeaten in the last 4 league meetings having won 3 of those games. You have to say that they are also worlds apart in terms of their current form. Leeds are a team that are on the up and have a positive future under Bielsa. West Brom are on the way down with a captain who is abandoning ship. It's impossible to want to back anything other than a solid Leeds win.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea

The hosts broke their three-match winless streak with a surprising 2:1 victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. They will finish the campaign in the safe mid-table position, but the Villans could have done more. Aston Villa could be more competitive in the continental spots battle, however, they missed their best player, Jack Grealish. The hosts did very well in front of the oppositions’ net, scoring 53 goals this season. However, Dean Smith’s side hasn’t been too convincing at Villa Park, as they booked only six wins on 18 occasions. The home side cannot improve its position on the standings but will search for a victorious finish.

Chelsea is still third, but they still haven’t secured the Champions League ticket. The Blues are one point ahead of Liverpool and Leicester City, and only three points can guarantee them a place among the top four. Thomas Tuchel’s side celebrated four times in the last five rounds, and they search for another victory here in Birmingham. Two big challenges are ahead of Mason Mount and the lads, as after this match, they will focus on the Champions League finals. The visitors have been pretty disciplined after the German head coach took over the bench, despite not being too efficient. Chelsea massively improved its performances on the road, as they missed the chance to win only once in the previous five outings. They want to keep up where they left off and secure the 3rd spot in this Premier League campaign.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

This game is much more important for Chelsea, and they are favorites to take all three points. We witnessed many surprising results across European leagues, but we don’t think the same will happen here.

Goals Market Prediction

Chelsea’s defense hasn’t been that tight lately, as they failed to keep the clean sheet four times in a row. On the other hand, Aston Villa didn’t score only once on the last nine occasions, and we could see both teams finding the back of the net here.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur

Only two wins in the last five rounds saw the home side declining to the 5th spot. Although they are leveled with Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers’s side is four goals behind. The Foxes spilled crucial points against Newcastle United at home while they lost against Chelsea in the latest round. Jamie Vardy and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal, but their defense has been pretty leaky lately. Leicester City lost eight times at King Power Stadium, which might cost them a place in the Champions League. They need to be very confident in this game to keep their chances of the top-four finish.

It has been a disappointing season for the Spurs, as they sit in 7th place. They lost two times on the last three occasions, and they can book the Europa League ticket only if West Ham fails to win. This might be the last game for Harry Kane in Tottenham’s jersey, but the side doesn’t seem too motivated. The visitors lost against Aston Villa in the latest round, despite an early lead. The Europa Conference League spot doesn’t seem too attractive for the Spurs, and they might “give” it to Everton or Arsenal. Tottenham hasn’t been too convincing on the road this season, as they managed to get back home seven times from 18 outings. The visitors look forward to the finish of this poor campaign to prepare better for the upcoming one.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

We don’t think Tottenham is too interested in the Europa Conference League spot, and they are in a lousy momentum. Leicester city should give their best for a top-four finish, and we believe they will secure all three points.

Goals Market Prediction

Head-to-head matches between these two sides have been pretty efficient lately, and we don’t think this one will be much different. We expect to see at least three goals in this encounter, and football fans should enjoy the match.

Leicester vs Tottenham

One of the key games on this final weekend of Premier League action is the Leicester versus Tottenham match which is scheduled to kick-off at 6pm BST at the King Power Stadium this Sunday afternoon. The home side need a win to stand any chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League and the away team have to win if they want to guarantee at least a Europa Conference League place next season.

Leicester have had a season to remember no matter what happens. The historic FA Cup win will add this current Foxes team to the legendary 2015/16 Premier League title winners as some of the club's greatest ever squads. Brendan Rodgers continues to work his magic with the club and if he can somehow guide them to a top four finish then it will be the icing on the cake this season. The team are currently in 5th place and outside the Champions League qualification places on goal difference. The equation is simple. They must beat the result of either Chelsea or Liverpool in the final round of games. If they fail it'll be another gut-wrenching end to a campaign with the team having been in the top four constantly since September 2019 bar the last weekend of this season and last season.

Tottenham are facing life without Harry Kane after the England striker handed in a transfer request last week. His future destination remains in the air and he's still tied down to a multi-year contract so it could get messy. For the time being, Spurs are in 7th place and need a win to secure European football but will also be hoping 6th placed West Ham lose so they can steal their Europa League qualification berth. Ryan Mason will need to pick his team up after their 2-1 loss at home to Aston Villa in their last outing. Their record against teams above them in the table isn't great with the team losing 7 such fixtures. It's also just 1 win from their last 5 away league games.

Both of these teams have seen their form hit in the league at this tail end of the season. It does feel like Leicester are emotionally and physically drained after that FA Cup win and they're undoubtedly missing Jonny Evans at the back. Tottenham have an inexperienced interim head coach in Mason and it's showing. I wouldn't be surprised if these two sides battled out a draw because I don't have confidence in either of them to win.

Leicester will be desperate to get the three points that could be enough to finish in the top four, and we look forward to winning this weekend. The Spurs have been disappointing against Aston Villa in their last game and will have a hard time beating Rogers at King Power Stadium.

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

The race for the Champions League is one of the main focal points of Sunday's final batch of Premier League games and one of the matches that is involved in that chaos is Liverpool versus Crystal Palace at 4pm BST from Anfield. It will be the last game of the home side's title-defending season but can they end it on a high by qualifying for Europe's top competition?

Liverpool have had to endure a tough season with injuries to key players including centre back Virgil Van Dijk. Credit to Jurgen Klopp and his squad to have fought back and put themselves in a prime position to finish in the top four when it was looking doubtful just a matter of weeks ago. The Reds are unbeaten in 9 league games having won 7 of those fixtures. It's propelled them to 4th in the table and ahead of Leicester on goal difference so their fate is in their own hands. If they better the result of Leicester or Chelsea then they'll be playing Champions League football next season. Liverpool have won their last league game of the season for four campaigns running now. A shout for anytime scorer is Sadio Mane who has scored in 7 consecutive appearances against Crystal Palace now. Given that Liverpool won the reverse fixture 7-0 earlier this season you'd like to think we could see goals here.

Crystal Palace end their reign under Roy Hodgson this weekend and the former Liverpool manager will be looking to go out on a high against his former employers. The Eagles have had a rather mediocre season with the club down in 13th place having never really threatened to do anything other than finish mid-table. 5 defeats from their last 7 league games shows their season has ended with a whimper. Defensive issues have plagued their campaign with the team conceding 64 goals this season which is their second worst defensive record in the Premier League. Unfortunately, Hodgson has lost each one of his six Premier League meetings with Klopp.

It's hard to see any hope for Crystal Palace here. You get the feeling that the players are just going through the motions knowing their manager won't be there next season and their safety in the Premier League has been assured for some weeks now. Liverpool still have everything to fight for and I expect them to do a number on their visitors here as they look to qualify for the Champions League. The fact Liverpool have won the last 7 league meetings between these two clubs only adds weight to that thinking.

Manchester City vs Everton

The league title celebrations can begin for 10,000 fans that will be in attendance at the Etihad Stadium this Sunday afternoon to witness Manchester City play Everton in their final game of the 2020/21 championship season in a 4pm BST kick-off. It's all about the party for the hosts but will they face a stubborn opponent in a travelling side that need to better Tottenham's result to qualify for the Europa Conference League?

Manchester City have had a season to remember and it's still not over yet. The reclamation of the league title from the grasp of Liverpool, the EFL Cup win, and a potential Champions League trophy win will make this campaign one of the best, if not the best, in the club's history. Pep Guardiola knows that there is still work to do but he'll want his team to head into next weekend's Champions League Final with some momentum. The Citizens have lost 3 of their last 4 home league games and are at risk of losing 3 consecutive home league games for the first time since 2007. City have lost just 1 of their last 12 final league games of the season. The club do boast a 100% win record in the final day of the season under Guardiola.

Everton still have a lot to play for with the opportunity to steal a Europa Conference League place from under the noses of Tottenham in their sights. Carlo Ancelotti's men are in 8th place and only behind Spurs on goal difference. The Toffees have only won 3 of their last 11 league games so form isn't at its best for the team. Even when they're winning it's not been convincing with their last 5 league victories coming by a 1-0 score-line. However, if they win this game then they'll equal the club record of 12 away league wins in a single season. One area of their game that has remained in tact recently on their travels is their defensive work with the club having kept four consecutive clean sheets on the road.

A lot of times this season I would have backed Manchester City to win this game all day long but their results have hit a slightly inconsistent patch lately. Is that Champions League Final playing on the mind of the staff and players? Everton have a carrot on a stick so they'll be going all out here but I'm just not sure they have the quality to beat City. I can see them pushing a rotated City side so I think an Asian Handicap bet is my preferred option here.

Sheffield United vs Burnley

Well, what a miserable season it's been for Sheffield United. The Yorkshire club will look to end their torrid campaign on a high in this 4pm BST kick-off with Burnley on Sunday afternoon at Bramall Lane. Will the hosts get a victory to add smiles to the faces of their fans or will the travelling side inflict even more pain on the supporters as they look to finish as high up the table as possible?

Sheffield United are finishing bottom of the Premier League this season and they will be playing their football next season in the Championship. The future doesn't hold much positive thinking for the Blades fans so they could really do with a win here as a morale boost. The club have already equalled the Premier League record of 29 defeats in a single season. If they lose here they will also equal the Premier League record for most home defeats in a single season. There is also the possibility that having only scored 19 goals in the league this season they could beat Derby's record from 2007/08 of 20 goals for the fewest number of league goals scored in a season. All very upbeat in Sheffield this weekend then!

Burnley currently sit in 17th place but could potentially rise up to 15th place with a win and if other results go their way. Sean Dyche's team will just be glad they are still in the Premier League for next season after their awful start of no win in their opening 7 league games including 5 losses. The Clarets still have something encouraging to play for though with the club capable of equalling a club Premier League record of 3 away league wins in a row. They can also match a club top flight record of 3 away clean sheets which hasn't been achieved since 1955. Unfortunately, the club have lost 6 of their last 8 league games so form isn't great. The team does possess an in-form striker in Chris Wood though with the New Zealand front man having been directly involved in 15 league goals this season and having scored 5 of the club's last 7 goals.

With all due respect, this is probably the least appealing game to watch this weekend. Sheffield United look demoralised, short on confidence, and don't boast the best head coach in Paul Heckingbottom. Burnley are in a run of dour form having lost back-to-back league games by an aggregate 7-0 score-line. I really wouldn't be surprised if this game ended in a 0-0 bore draw.

West Ham vs Southampton

OK, so it's fairly simple in terms of what needs to happen in this game. It's West Ham versus Southampton in a 4pm BST kick-off on Sunday afternoon at the London Stadium. The home team must earn just a single point to seal their place in the Europa League next season but they face an away side who have a habit of raining on the parade of other teams.

West Ham are potentially facing a record-breaking points tally this season if David Moyes can inspire his team to victory in this game. The Hammers sit in 6th place and are 3 points clear of 7th placed Tottenham but do have an inferior goal difference so if they did lose and Tottenham won then they'd slip down into the Europa Conference League place... or worse! If West Ham earn the point to secure 6th then it'll be their first time finishing in the top 6 since the 1998/99 season. The club has also extended its club Premier League record to 18 league wins this season after victory against West Brom in midweek. It's all very positive in the east end of London.

Southampton have probably had a season they'll want to put behind them. Sparks of optimism in the early stages of the season seem a long time ago now. The Saints are down in 14th place and have endured a torrid second half of the campaign. Ralph Hasenhuttl's side have lost 14 of their previous 20 league matches and have lost 9 of their 10 away league matches this calendar year. Defensive issues have plagued the team with 40 goals conceded in their last 17 league matches. If they concede one more goal then they will equal the club record for the most number of goals conceded in a Premier League season.

This feels like it is West Ham's game to lose but then if any team is going to lose this game then it would be West Ham. I think a lot of Hammers fans will be able to relate to that. Luckily for them, the only team that can stop their European dream is Tottenham who are also more than capable of "doing a Spurs" and bottle-jobbing things themselves. I'm going to back West Ham to get the job done though simply because Southampton have become so poor on their travels.

Wolves vs Manchester United

It's a bit of a weird one to end our Premier League coverage this season. Wolves play Manchester United in a 4pm BST start on Sunday afternoon from Molineux and it'll be a final farewell by Nuno Espirito Santo as he manages his final game for the team after his departure from the club was confirmed last week... but the rumours persist. Did he resign or was he sacked? How will his team cope against a travelling team who have one eye on the Europa League Final this week?

Wolves are set to begin a new era and having spoken to a number of their fans I know they're all feeling a little bit nervous about it. Wanderers are set to part ways with Santo and there is speculation that former Roma head coach Paulo Fonseca is being lined up as his replacement. It's a big gamble at a controversial time for the team. The club are in 12th after a season of mediocrity so it's understandable that the owners feel a change needed to be made for progress to continue but you need to be careful what you wish for in the Premier League. It's been a campaign blighted by inconsistency and the team have now only won 1 of their last 5 league games. The great news is that Raul Jimenez has been cleared to play again but he won't be risked. The team won 50% of their league games with him in the team but only 26% without him which shows how key he is to what they do.

Manchester United have secured 2nd place in the top flight of English football this season and if the Red Devils can win the Europa League later this week then it will be a season to remember for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players. United are without a win in their last 3 league games though. However, they are still a force to be reckoned with away from home having now gone 25 away league games undefeated. If they avoid losing here then they'll become just the third club in top flight history to go a whole season unbeaten on the road in the league after Preston (1888/89) and Arsenal (2001/02 and 2003/04). It's also been just 1 defeat in their last 13 last league games of the season. Who inflicted that solitary defeat I hear you ask? Only my very own Cardiff back in 2018/19. Let's forget the fact we were relegated that season though, yeah? :lol

I'm not sure how this game will play out. Wolves will see this as a chance to say goodbye to Santo but they'll want to end it on a high. How motivated will the players be though? United have a massive game later this week so will Solskjaer look to rotate? I think he'll be keen to win this one and send them into the final in a positive mindset whilst also keeping his players sharp. I think United are worth backing to win. It all depends how they cope without Harry Maguire. I expect an improvement on the Liverpool and Fulham displays.

Hi Steve,

I just don't see the goals or entertainment in this game. United will play a second 11, probably giving their main men 20 minutes at the end of the game. I think you see a disjointed United side, with 5 unfamiliar faces, struggling for cohesion. Mata, Matic, Telles, van de Beek, Elanga and the rest of the 2nd stringers to get a meaningless outing.,

I would be going under 2.5 goals here all day at odds of 1.9 

I have a mate coming over to watch the game, and I think it will bore us beyond belief (can always watch the golf), At least the food and drink will be good.

 

I think Chelsea and Liverpool both win quite easily. Villa have stank it up, against the top teams this season. In 13 games against the top 7 they have lost 9 times, failing to score just twice. I think Chelsea win, and go over 2.5 goals (odds 2.1)

 

I would not touch another game today. No motivation, with relegation sorted. Not much to play for !

Halfway through a quick trawl of the line ups to see if anything catches the eye. Two so far.

A Villa v Chelsea: 16 points on Watkins to score at 4.8 on BF

Fulham v Newcastle: 12.5 points on Willock to score at 6/1 with PP (Under "Power Prices"; they had me at the 9/2 shown on Odds Checker so 6/1 feels huge, whether his freak scoring run continues today or not.)

Hi Steve,

I just don't see the goals or entertainment in this game. United will play a second 11, probably giving their main men 20 minutes at the end of the game. I think you see a disjointed United side, with 5 unfamiliar faces, struggling for cohesion. Mata, Matic, Telles, van de Beek, Elanga and the rest of the 2nd stringers to get a meaningless outing.,

I would be going under 2.5 goals here all day at odds of 1.9 

I have a mate coming over to watch the game, and I think it will bore us beyond belief (can always watch the golf), At least the food and drink will be good.

 

I think Chelsea and Liverpool both win quite easily. Villa have stank it up, against the top teams this season. In 13 games against the top 7 they have lost 9 times, failing to score just twice. I think Chelsea win, and go over 2.5 goals (odds 2.1)

 

I would not touch another game today. No motivation, with relegation sorted. Not much to play for !

 

Another 0 for 2 in a season that never stops giving
