Premier League Predictions - Week 29
With just ten games to go in the Premier League, we can confirm that Manchester City have finally secured their place in the Premier League next season. We say this due to the fact that the relegation battle is where the entertainment is this year, the race for the top four is relatively exciting due to how below-par most teams have been this year but with just 9 points separating 12th and 18th, there are nine teams who are still realistically fighting against relegation. MG put in his expected results for the rest of the year and his prediction was that it will take 36 points to survive this season and 59 to claim a Champions League spot but the question is with 10 games remaining, which teams will take the initiative and make those places their own. In our predictions, TM took the initiative and grasped a 5-3 victory last week and even backed Watford to beat Liverpool (to which MG cried with laughter when he saw), can he claim back-to-back victories with a win in Week 29?
Liverpool Vs AFC Bournemouth - Saturday 7th March (12:30)
The opening fixture this week would have been a foregone conclusion a week ago. However, Bournemouth were unlucky not to beat Chelsea at the weekend and Liverpool were absolutely dismal against Watford and poor against Chelsea in midweek. However, in the last five games, Liverpool have won all five either 4-0 or 3-0 and have an aggregate scoreline of 17-0 but that will all be forgotten if Bournemouth can overcome the odds and beat Liverpool at Anfield.
Since the Winter Break, Liverpool players haven’t been the same. They have looked more like the Liverpool we expected rather than the incredible side that we have seen throughout the first half of the campaign. That being said, look at the stats and you’ll see that Anfield is a fortress. I can’t see Bournemouth being the side to take three points, I’ll go for a correct score but I can’t see them winning 3-0, three times in a row.
Liverpool will have been shell shocked by their loss at Vicarage Road last weekend, while Bournemouth battled hard to earn a point over Chelsea. However, at Anfield we’re likely to see radically different performances, and I can see Liverpool scoring a few.
Arsenal Vs West Ham United - Saturday 7th March (15:00)
The Gunners have to put their defeat to Olympiacos out of their minds and focus on their league campaign. They are five points off Manchester United in 5th but they could be one point ahead at the end of this gameweek. However, they will need to beat both West Ham and Manchester City to stand any chance of that happening. Meanwhile, the Hammers all of a sudden look like a team who can pick up points in big games after last week's win against Southampton. However, they will need to develop some consistency if they want to push away from the bottom three.
Arsenal are still languishing in mid-table, although a couple of wins could propel them into contention to qualify for Europe. West Ham meanwhile are facing a real battle for Premier League survival, and will give their all to upset the odds. I can see a few goals as a result.
West Ham on their day are more than capable of picking up a big win here while Arsenal will be out for vengeance following their humiliating defeat in the Europa League, Arsenal’s reaction will be the biggest aspect here, I think the Hammers could get something here.
Crystal Palace Vs Watford - Saturday 7th March (15:00)
This isn’t exactly a fixture that screams six-goal thriller as these two sides are two of the lowest scoring in the league. However, it is the goals of Jordan Ayew that have kept Crystal Palace away from the bottom four this season and Watford’s win against Liverpool was their first in six games which means the complexion of this match has changed entirely.
I actually think both teams will score in this one. Watford will have confidence and they could win this one 2-0 if they defend the counter-attack as well as they did against Liverpool. However, Palace are capable of scoring a few goals against the right opponent.
I successfully backed Watford last time out, and while Crystal Palace have had a couple of decent smash and grab wins recently, the Hornets are likely to cause problems at Selhurst Park. To that end, I can see them taking all three points to improve their situation.
Sheffield United Vs Norwich City - Saturday 7th March (15:00)
At the start of the season you wouldn’t be blamed if you had written that both of these sides would get relegated. We know for a fact that MG did although he did say that one of these sides might stay up and that team was Norwich City. 6 Months later and Norwich look set for relegation and Sheffield United may just grasp European Football next year, now that would be a feel-good story for the 2019/20 campaign.
Norwich controlled the game very well to beat Leicester last weekend, and then also did well to edge past Tottenham in the FA Cup. Sheffield United have laboured to some good results across the last month, but they could slip up if they lose concentration. A 1-1 draw seems like a good shout in my book, but we’ll go with a double chance.
Well, I’ve been called out on that one. Not that I can complain, I don’t think anyone expected this campaign to have gone as it did. However, I will note that I did point out Sheffield United to survive was great odds at over evens. Anyways, back to the matter at hand, this game could be a very good one as both sides will think they can win here.
Southampton Vs Newcastle United - Saturday 7th March (15:00)
This is a fixture that usually pulls out a surprise. We never expect an entertaining game but we usually see a fair few goals in these games. In-fact since Southampton got promoted to the Premier League in 2012, these sides have faced off 13 times and there have been less than three goals only three times and just one 0-0 draw and that game saw Southampton have 22 shots, so we might expect some goals here.
5,000 Geordies saw one of Newcastle’s best-attacking displays this season in their midweek game against Championship leaders West Brom and I think Steve Bruce may have seen enough to indicate that his side could play attacking football and I think we’ll see that belief in stages here. Draw but as a double chance is above evens, I’ll go with that
A win for Southampton and a couple of wins for Newcastle should see them safe come the end of the season, so there’s perhaps more to play for here than meets the eye. Southampton have been the better of the two in recent weeks, but I foresee them cancelling each other out.
Wolves Vs Brighton & Hove Albion - Saturday 7th March (15:00)
Wolves are very difficult to beat in the Premier League this year which means that we could see Brighton’s winless run extend to 10 games and with their fixtures that could extend to 15 games very easily. This is a game where they could pick up a draw if they play well, however, the longer they go without a win, the closer they fall to relegation.
Wolves are now unbeaten in four Premier League matches, picking up eight points in that time, while Brighton are yet to win in 2020, and have only registered eight points in total since Christmas. Those statistics should speak for themselves, but I can see Brighton at least getting a goal, possibly in vain.
Brighton won’t win here that much is for sure. I thought Graham Potter leaving Swansea last year was disgusting considering they took a chance on him and brought him back to England. I also wouldn’t mind betting that they play Swansea next season. With that being said, I think they may score against Wolves here but they’ll lose.
Burnley Vs Tottenham Hotspur - Saturday 7th March (17:30)
Spurs have improved under Jose Mourinho but after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Norwich in mid-week they will need to improve if they are to beat Burnley here. Sean Dyche’s men were quite poor against Newcastle United but they still picked up a good point at St James’ Park. Can they get back to winning ways against Spurs?
I think it will be a cagey start to this game before it opens up in the second half, Spurs will know that they will struggle to outscore anyone in this league without a legitimate striker. So, they’ll set up looking to hit Burnley on the break while the Clarets will hope that a direct style of play will get the better of Spurs which they probably will.
Burnley have turned a significant corner this year, and are now unbeaten in six games, which has kept them on the radar for qualifying for Europe. Tottenham have lost the last couple, and their leaky defence is becoming more and more of an issue. That said, I think they’ve got the capacity to win at Turf Moor, against a side not known for their goalscoring prowess.
Chelsea Vs Everton - Sunday 8th March (14:00)
When Carlo Ancelotti returns to Stamford Bridge with Everton, he will know that his side are one of the in-form sides in the league while his former side are going under a bit of a slump with just one win in their last six. Everton also haven’t lost in their last four games against Chelsea and remarkably they’ve kept three clean sheets in that time so the question remains will Carlo Ancelotti follow in Marco Silva’s footsteps?
Both of these sides are unpredictable at the moment, although Everton haven’t failed to score in a league game since before Christmas. Chelsea meanwhile have struggled in front of goal a couple of times in 2020. Four 2-2 draws across their past ten combined Premier League games suggests this could be a draw, and that’s exactly what I’ll go with.
I may follow the overview with my prediction as under 1.5 goals is actually stuck at a fantastic stake. This could end up being 3-2 to one of these sides but the stats suggest a low scoring game.
Manchester United Vs Manchester City - Sunday 8th March (16:30)
The Manchester Derby is one of the most even derbies in the Premier League as Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have both gotten wins against City in recent memory, they haven’t been the prettiest of performances but they have still played very well and gotten the desired result. Meanwhile, City will be fighting for bragging rights and bragging rights only when they take on Man United this weekend although with the quality they have on show, that might be enough.
I can’t see Man United getting anything here. They are a decent side but in reality, they aren’t anywhere near the level of Manchester City, that being said the introduction of Bruno Fernandes may end up being one of the signings of the season. So I’ll back him to score here.
It’s tough to work out exactly what Manchester City are playing for at this stage, as a strong league finish may be pointless if their ban from European competition is upheld. As a result, Manchester United could return to the Champions League with a fifth placed finish, and they’ll be keen to get a result to drag themselves away from Wolves, Tottenham, and Sheffield United.
Leicester City Vs Aston Villa - Monday 9th March (20:00)
This repeat of the Carabao Cup semi-final won’t fill either side with confidence as the hosts failed to beat them on both occasions and with Aston Villa’s form in the league we can’t imagine that they will be particularly confident regarding their next game against the former Premier League winners, the concerning thing for Leicester is that Jamie Vardy is on a goal scoring drought and Ayoze Perez hasn’t started his usual end-of-season goalscoring run just yet. However, that could change on Monday Night.
When you think about the football that Leicester have played recently, seeing them as 5/13 favourites in any game could be seen as a surprise, but Aston Villa are seemingly spiralling towards relegation. I think the away side could get something, but I’ve been impressed with one of Leicester’s supporting cast, so think he could get a goal.
Aston Villa are a side in deep trouble. The sides around them are picking up points and they have an incredibly difficult end of season schedule and I think this might be the fourth in a long line of losses for Aston Villa but a double chance at this price against an out-of-sorts team, is too much to resist.
