Premier League Preview Final week

Leicester v Manchester United

The long-awaited finale to the Premier League season takes place this weekend and. Liverpool finally got their hands on the league trophy this week to cap their title-winning campaign but the places for the Champions League and the battle for relegation are still to be decided on Sunday. Leicester take on Manchester United in what could be a straight shoot-out for one of the two final Champions League places still available while Chelsea know they will need to beat Wolves at home to definitely secure Champions League football next season.

In the battle against relegation, Bournemouth will need to beat Everton at Goodison Park to have any chance of surviving. Watford and Aston Villa are also still involved in the relegation dogfight as they face Arsenal and West Ham respectively. Draws for both sides would see Villa stay up, but if both win, relegation could be decided on goal difference with Watford on -27 and Villa -26. It’s bound to be a tense day with plenty of potential movement at both ends of the table.

Leicester v Manchester United

Leicester’s form since the restart has been patchy and they have won just three fixtures in their last nine in all competitions.  In their last five, Brendan Rodgers side conceded eight and scored seven. However, the Foxes’ home form is strong in the Premier League. They have lost only three games at the King Power this season and are unbeaten in their last four (won three, drawn one) without conceding a goal.

Manchester United stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 13 recently with a 1-1 draw with West Ham at Old Trafford. During this impressive run, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side kept eight clean sheets, scored 27 and conceded just seven. United have won their last three and drawn just one of their four fixtures since the restart and have the best away form since the restart.

Marc Alrbighton could return for Leicester following a groin injury. The Foxes will be without Caglar Soyuncu who remains suspended while James Maddison (groin), Ben Chilwell (ankle), Christian Fuchs (groin), Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Ricardo Pereira (knee) are all ruled out. United will be without Phil Jones (knock), Eric Bailly (facial injury), and Axel Tuanzebe (knock). Luke Shaw may return following an ankle injury.

Manchester United go into this game in better form and also have a good head to head against Leicester. United have won five of the last six meetings and Leicester have only taken one point from the Red Devils in this time. However, Leicester’s home form may stand them in good stead, which could result in a score draw.

Leicester – 21/20

Draw – 5/2

Manchester United – 6/5

Arsenal v Watford

Arsenal’s loss to Aston Villa earlier this week was only their second in nine matches in all competitions. In this run, the Gunners picked up six wins, scored 16 goals and beat both Liverpool and Manchester City. Since Mikel Arteta took over at the Emirates, he has lost only two home games in 12. They have won 16 points from their last 18 available in the Premier League at home.

Watford’s crucial 3-1 loss to West Ham on Friday led to the shock departure of Nigel Pearson last weekend. The Hornets then suffered a 4-0 loss to Manchester City on Tuesday, leaving them with two wins in their last nine games. Watford have only gained one point away from their last 21 available and lost their last five consecutive games on the road, scoring just one goal and conceding 11.

Arsenal will be without Bernd Leno (knee), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Calum Chambers (knee), Shkodran Mustafi (thigh) and Pablo Mari (ankle) and Mesut Ozil (lower back).  Matteo Guendouzi remains away from the squad due to disciplinary matters. Isaac Success (calf), Gerard Deulofeu (knee), Daryl Janmaat (knee) and Etienne Capoue (knock) are all out for Watford.

Watford’s chances for survival were not made any easier by the sacking of Nigel Pearson last week. Their recent struggles against Arsenal looks set to continue on Sunday as Arteta’s side look set to continue their good recent home form.

Arsenal – 21/20

Draw – 11/4

Watford – 9/4

West Ham v Aston Villa

West Ham’s upturn in form recently ensured they escaped from relegation this season. David Moyes’ side lost just one of their last six league matches and picked up 11 points from their last 18 available, leaving them sixth in the form Premier League form charts. The Hammers’ defence however remains leaky, they’ve kept one clean sheet in eight since the restart, conceded 11 but scored 13 in their last six.

Villa extended their unbeaten run to three following their impressive 1-0 win over Arsenal this week. It is their best run since the restart after picking up just two points from 18 available before their three-match streak. Although, Dean Smith’s side are still without a win in nine matches away in all competitions. They have won only two Premier League away games this season but have drawn two of their last three away.

Wesley (knee), Tom Heaton (knee) and Bjorn Engels (calf) are ruled out for Villa. But Neil Taylor could be back in contention and Ahmed El Mohamady will face a late fitness test on a thigh injury. Robert Snodgrass (back) and Ryan Fredricks (calf) are both doubtful for West Ham, while Jarrod Bowen and Aaron Cresswell may recover in time after picking up knocks recently, but also remain doubtful.

Both West Ham and Villa have turned their fortunes around in recent games. The Hammers may just edge this one as they have been impressive recently while Villa have struggled on the road.

West Ham – 21/20

Draw – 13/5

Aston Villa – 23/20

Chelsea v Wolves

Wolves have been impressive since the restart, winning five of their eight matches and losing just two. They have kept five clean sheets, conceded just four and scored 11 in this run. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are also in good form away. In their last six on the road, only Manchester United have picked up more points in the Premier League and Wolves have lost just one in their last six away.

Chelsea’s 5-3 loss to Liverpool this week highlighted their frailties in defence once more. They have the worst defence in the top half of the table, conceding 54 in the Premier League. Frank Lampard’s side have won three and lost three of their last six matches, scoring 12 and conceding 11 in this run. But their recent home record is strong as the Blues have won five successive Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge since the restart.

Wolves have no suspensions or injuries. Bill Gilmour remains out for Chelsea with a knee injury and N’Golo Kante is doubtful with a thigh injury.

Although Wolves are the more in-form team, Chelsea’s excellent home record can’t be ignored. However, Wolves are a tough opposition to score against and have one of the best defences in the league. Expect a low-scoring draw for this fixture.

Chelsea – 17/20

Draw – 3/1

Wolves – 14/5
