The final weekend is here, the focus switches to the bottom end as Leeds, Leicester, and Everton fight for survival.
Sunday May 28 – 17:30
Arsenal vs Wolves
I’m sure Arsenal fans would disagree, but they bottled this title race and City have claimed their third consecutive crown. There’s no point in mulling over what could or would have happened as they plan for next season. Wolves are uncertain about the future of coach Julian Lopetegui, but he has done enough to secure the club’s safety in the topflight. The Spaniard will hope to get some backing in the transfer market and push for a top-half finish next season. Both clubs will want to see this game out, but Arsenal should get the win for the home fans.
Aston Villa vs Brighton
The Villains have done well under Unai Emery. They had a great run in March and will be hoping to finish strong – that could see them grab the final European spot for next season. The Seagulls have had a great season by their standards. They did well in their midweek draw with Manchester City and will look to end the season off on a high note. Villa knows that Spurs can leapfrog them if they fail to win, so we can expect a strong performance from the hosts and a narrow win.
Brentford vs Manchester City
Despite the midweek draw to Brighton, Pep Guardiola can relax and make more changes ahead of the two big finals (FA Cup and Champions League). The Champions would love to finish off with a win and the depth of City is fully capable of delivering it. The Beez are buzzing as the season reaches its climax. Ivan Toney will be missed due to his ban, but Bryan Mbuemo and Wissa Yoane have come to the party for Thomas Frank. Brentford will go all out for a win as it could lead to a European spot if Spurs and Villa lose their matches. But this looks like a scrappy win for the champions.
LAST MAN STANDING
Southampton are down and out, and it looks like they are likely to end the season with a defeat to Liverpool. So, it’s down to Leeds, Leicester, and Everton to battle it out for that final survival spot.
For Big Sam and Leeds, a victory against Tottenham at Elland Road will give them 34 points. They will need both the Toffees and Foxes to lose their games to ensure survival. This will be a tough task, but Spurs have been soft at times this season and that will give Leeds the motivation to get the win.
Leicester City face West Ham, who are safe from the drop zone and looking to end the season on a winning note. Dean Smith saw his Foxes earn a valuable point away at Newcastle – a result that pushed their chances of survival to the last day. Three points against the Hammers may not guarantee that, but it gives them a chance if both Leeds and Everton fail to win. Leicester City have a better goal difference and if all three clubs are level on points, they will survive the drop.
Everton have it in their hands when they entertain Bournemouth. A draw might not be enough if goal difference comes into play, but a win will ensure they remain in the topflight, while Leeds and Leicester will be playing championship next season. The stoppage time equalizer against Wolves earned Everton a precious point. They need to channel that confidence boost into this game and get the job done.
IT’S GOING TO BE A CRAZY SUNDAY AND FROM A BETTING PERSPECTIVE, IT WOULD BE ABSOLUTE VALUE TO TAKE A TREBLE OF LEEDS, LEICESTER, AND EVERTON TO WIN @ 78/10!
