Premier League Preview Gameweek 25

Liverpool v Everton

The Premier League continues to provide plenty of excitement as the season enters its final third. Man City opened a ten-point gap this week and extended their winning streak to 17 with a win over Everton. The race for the top four is becoming tighter each week. Chelsea have been resurgent under Thomas Tuchel while Leicester and West Ham continue to surprise with their respective pushes for the Champions League spots.

At the bottom, Fulham kept their survival hopes alive with a shock 2-0 win away at Everton last weekend and West Brom picked up a valuable point at home to Man United. Sheffield United, however, continued to struggle following a 3-0 loss to West Ham. This weekend, there are two big derby matches as Liverpool take on Everton and Tottenham face West Ham. Fulham also host Sheffield United in a massive relegation dogfight and Pep Guardiola faces his old protégé as City head to the Emirates to take on Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Liverpool v Everton

Liverpool lost a third consecutive Premier League game in a row for the first time since 2014 last weekend, throwing away a 1-0 lead in the final 15 minutes to lose 3-1 against Leicester. Despite winning 2-0 against RB Leipzig in mid-week, Liverpool have lost five of their last nine in all competitions. Jurgen Klopp’s side have also won just twice in their last 10 Premier League games, and are winless at home in five consecutive games (drawn two, lost three).

Everton’s losses to Man City and Fulham last week handed the Toffees consecutive league defeats for the first time since early November. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have now won just once in their last six Premier League games and lost three. But the Toffees are in decent form away from home and are unbeaten in their last seven matches, winning four and drawing three.

Naby Keita could return for Liverpool this weekend but the Reds will be without Diogo Jota (knee), Joel Matip (ankle), Joe Gomez (knee), Virgil van Dijk (knee), James Milner (thigh), and Fabio Taveres (muscular injury). Dominic Calvert-Lewin should return for Everton following a thigh injury but Yerry Mina is doubtful with a knock.

Liverpool looked strong in their win against Leipzig in the Champions League. If they can take this form into the game against an inconsistent Everton, the Reds should record another derby victory and extend their unbeaten streak in this fixture to 24 matches.

Liverpool – 4/9

Everton – 6/1

Draw – 7/2

Fulham v Sheffield United

Fulham picked up a first Premier League win since late November last weekend, beating Everton 2-0. Scott Parker’s side followed up the result with a 1-1 away draw against Burnley in mid-week. Despite only losing once in their last six, Fulham have found hard wins to come by, drawing four of these games. The Cottagers have also struggled at home this season, losing three of their last four at Craven Cottage.

Sheffield United have shown some improvement in recent weeks, winning three of their last seven Premier League games. However, Chris Wilder’s side suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time since early January last week, losing 2-1 to Chelsea and 3-0 to West Ham in their last two games. Away from home, the Blades have really struggled this season. The Yorkshire side have gained just four points from 12 away games this season, the worst return in the league.

Tom Cairney (knee) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (coronavirus) are ruled out for Fulham. Sheffield United will be without Sander Berge (thigh), Jack Robinson (knock), John Fleck (hospital), John Egan (ankle), and Jack O’Connell (knee).

Fulham will be full of confidence after their recent upturn in form. Scott Parker’s side look hard to beat and will fancy their chances of edging out a poor, injury ridden Sheffield United.

Fulham – 11/10

Sheffield United – 11/4

Draw – 9/4

West Ham v Tottenham

West Ham’s excellent form in 2021 continued last weekend as the Hammers comfortably defeated Sheffield United 3-0. David Moyes’ side have lost one and drawn one of their last eight Premier League games, taking 19 points – only Man City have a better record in the same time period. The Hammers have been in good form at the London Stadium recently, winning four of their last five at home and losing just one of their last seven in all competitions.

Tottenham’s recent poor form continued last weekend as Jose Mourinho’s side lost 3-0 to Man City. Spurs have lost five of their last six in all competitions and won just once in this time. In the Premier League, Tottenham have gained just seven points from the last 21 available. The North London side haven’t fared much better away from home recently, winning just one of their last seven on the road and have failed to score in their last two away games.

Fabian Balbuena and Michail Antonio could return from recent injuries but Arthur Masuaku (knee), Angelo Ogbonna (ankle), and Andriy Yarmolenko (knee) are ruled out for West Ham. Tottenham will be without Giovani Lo Celso, who is out with a thigh injury but Serge Aurier and Sergio Reguilon are set to return.

Spurs are really struggling while West Ham look unstoppable on current form so a home win is likely here.

West Ham – 8/5

Tottenham – 7/4

Draw – 23/10

Arsenal v Man City

Arsenal comfortably defeated Leeds 4-2 last weekend, scoring four goals for the first time this season. The result also ended the Gunners’ three match run without a win. Despite this small blip at the end of January to early February, Arsenal have been in good form long-term. The Gunners have only lost two of their last 10 Premier League matches and won six of these fixtures. At home, Arsenal are one of the most in form teams, winning three, drawing three, and conceding just four in their last six at the Emirates.

Man City extended their winning streak to 17 in all competitions after beating Everton 3-1 in mid-week. Pep Guardiola’s side are now 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and remain unbeaten in 16 games. During this run, City have only conceded four goals, three of which have come away from the Etihad. On the road, City are equally as impressive, winning their last six in a row.

Thomas Partey remains doubtful for Arsenal following a thigh injury. City will be without Nathan Ake (match fitness) but Ilkay Gundogan should return after a recent groin injury.

Although Man City are in exceptional form, Arsenal away is no easy match. With Arsenal looking solid at home, a score draw could be on the cards for this fixture.

Arsenal – 6/1

Man City – 9/20

Draw – 23/10
