Premier League Preview Gameweek 33

Arsenal v Everton

After a reduced fixture list and several mid-week matches, the Premier League returns to near full strength this weekend. Man United closed the gap on league leaders Man City to eight points with a 3-1 win against Burnley last weekend. But the Citizens remain the favourites to lift the 2020/21 Premier League title. There have also been twists and turns in the race for the top four. Chelsea drew 0-0 against Brighton on Tuesday and moved above West Ham into the Champions League places. Liverpool squandered their chance to make up ground with a 1-1 draw against Leeds on Monday.

This weekend, it’s fourth vs fifth as West Ham host Chelsea in a massive match in the race for the top four. United face in-form Leeds and the Red Devils could close the gap on City to five points with a win. At the bottom, Burnley could take a step closer to securing Premier League football next season as they face Wolves. West Brom will hope to keep their chances of Premier League survival alive as they face Aston Villa.

Arsenal v Everton

Arsenal extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to four matches with a 1-1 draw against Fulham last weekend. Eddie Nketiah scored in the 90th minute to salvage a point for the Gunners. The result leaves Arsenal with one defeat in seven Premier League matches but draws against Burnley and West Ham to keep Arsenal in ninth place and nine points off the European places. Despite solid recent form, Mikel Arteta’s side is winless in their last four at home, drawing two and losing two.

Everton recorded their third consecutive Premier League draw last weekend as they held Spurs to a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park. The result leaves the Toffees in eighth place and six points off West Ham in fifth. Carlo Ancelotti’s side is in poor form and failed to win in their last five Premier League matches. But decent away form has kept Everton within touching distance of the top five. They have lost just once in 11 away matches in the Premier League but failed to win in three of their last five.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard could return for Arsenal, but David Luiz (knee), Kieran Tierney (knee) and Alexandre Lacazette (thigh) are ruled out. Andre Gomes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin could return for Everton, but Yerry Mina (tendon), Fabian Delph (abductor) and Bernard (undisclosed) are doubtful. Abdoulaye Doucoure is ruled out with an ankle injury.

Arsenal and Everton need a win on Friday to make a last-minute push for Europe. However, neither side is in good form, and a draw is likely at the Emirates.

Arsenal -10/11

Everton – 3/1

Draw – 13/5

Liverpool v Newcastle United

Liverpool extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to four matches with a 1-1 draw against Leeds. The Reds were heading for a fourth win in as many games, but Diego Llorente equalised in the dying minutes. A win would have taken Jurgen Klopp’s side level on points with Chelsea and West Ham in the race for fourth. However, improving form has seen Liverpool lost just one of their last seven matches in all competitions. The Reds also recorded their first Premier League win at Anfield in eight matches last time out with a 2-1 win against Aston Villa.

Newcastle recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since December with a 3-2 victory over West Ham on Saturday. The win moved the Magpies eight points clear of the relegation places and extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to three matches. Steve Bruce’s side has been hard to beat in recent weeks. They have drawn four of their last seven but have struggled for points away from home, taking four from their last 15 available on the road.

Curtis Jones is doubtful for Liverpool. Divock Origi (muscular), Virgil van Dijk (knee), Caoimhin Kelleher (abdomen), Nathan Phillips (hamstring), Joe Gomez (knee), Joel Matip (ankle), and Jordan Henderson (groin) are ruled out. Allan Saint-Maximin is a doubt for Newcastle with an ankle injury. The Magpies are also without Isaac Hayden (knee), Fabian Schar (knee), Ryan Fraser (groin), and Jamaal Lascelles (ankle).

Liverpool faces a tough Newcastle side this weekend, but they desperately need a win to keep the pressure on the top four. The Reds could make it two home wins from two this weekend.

Liverpool – 1/4

Newcastle – 9/1

Draw – 5/1

West Ham v Chelsea

West Ham’s three-match unbeaten run came to an end last weekend after losing 3-2 away at Newcastle. The Hammers fought back from 2-0 but conceded a third late on. The dropped points saw David Moyes’ side move out of the top four on goal difference in mid-week. Despite the loss to Newcastle, West Ham will be encouraged by their excellent home form. They have won four of their last five Premier League matches at the London Stadium. Only league leaders Man City have gained more points at home than West ham this season.

Chelsea drew 0-0 with Brighton on Tuesday evening, which saw the Blues leapfrogged West Ham into fourth place. Thomas Tuchel’s side has struggled to put together a run of wins in recent weeks and they suffered a shock 5-2 defeat to West Brom two weeks ago. Four draws and a loss in the last eight matches has slowed Chelsea’s push for the top four. However, they are unbeaten in their last six away and thrashed Crystal Palace 4-1 in their last away match.

Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Cresswell could return for West Ham this weekend. Craig Dawson is suspended while Declan Rice (knee) and Michail Antonio (thigh) are ruled out. Chelsea’s defender Thiago Silva could return from a muscle injury but Mateo Kovacic is ruled out with a hamstring injury.

This is a huge game and with so much at stake for both sides, a draw could be likely. Goals are expected as West Ham have been involved in several high-scoring matches recently.

West Ham – 15/4

Chelsea – 7/10

Draw – 11/4

Leeds v Man United

Leeds extended their impressive unbeaten run to five matched with a 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Monday. Marcelo Bielsa’s side are hard to beat and they have taken points off Chelsea and Man City in recent weeks. Leeds’ resilient form has come from a string of good results at Elland Road. They are unbeaten in their last three at home and have won three of their last six matches.

Man United won their fifth consecutive match in all competitions last weekend, beating Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford. It also extended their winning run in the Premier League to five games and took their unbeaten streak to 12 matches. United are still unbeaten away in the Premier League this season and have won their last two away matches against Man City and Spurs.

Raphinha could be in contention for Leeds this weekend. Rodrigo (muscular) and Adam Forshaw (match fitness) are doubtful, while Liam Cooper is suspended. Eric Bailly should return to United’s squad. Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are both unavailable due to knee injuries.

Leeds have been in excellent form recently and have shown resilience against the top teams. United are also a tough side to beat away from home so don’t rule out a draw between these two sides on Monday.

Leeds – 29/10

Man United – 4/5

Draw – 29/10
