Premier League Preview Week 29

Premier League Preview - Week 29

There were some shock results last weekend in the Premier League. Liverpool lost for the first time this season to Watford and West Ham picked up their first win for two months.

Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back this weekend against Bournemouth. Manchester United take on Manchester City in the biggest match of the weekend and both will be looking to secure Champions League qualification in the coming weeks. In-form Everton take on Chelsea on Sunday as both aim to get into the top four. West Ham will want to build on their win last weekend but face a tough test against Arsenal. Watford can also move further away from the relegation zone with a win at Crystal Palace.

All odds are from bet365 and subject to change.

Arsenal v West Ham

Arsenal’s revival under Mikel Arteta continues. The Gunners have lost only one match in their last 12. They are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games and won their last two consecutive matches. Arsenal’s recent home record is good, winning three out of their last four, scoring 10 goals.

West Ham won their first game since New Year’s Day last weekend. It was the Hammers first win in eight attempts but David Moyes’ side have only secured five points from their last 24 available in the Premier League. West Ham haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight games and have lost their last five matches away from home.

Sead Kolasinac (shoulder) and Calum Chambers (knee) are ruled out. Kieran Tierney may be back in contention but Lucas Torreira may be unavailable after sustaining injury against Portsmouth. For West Ham, Jack Wilshire (groin), Tomas Soucek (thigh) and Ryan Fredericks (shoulder) are all ruled out. Andriy Yarmolenko may be available following a thigh injury.

Arsenal’s improving form will see them run out comfortable winners over West Ham, who are still struggling despite their win last weekend.

Arsenal – 8/15

Draw – 10/3

West Ham – 5/1

Chelsea v Everton

Chelsea’s form is inconsistent currently. In their last nine fixtures they have three wins, draws and losses. Their 2-0 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup was the first time they kept a clean sheet in nine games. Frank Lampard’s side have one of the worst defences in the top half in the league, conceding 39 in 28 games. Chelsea have only picked up seven points from their last 18 available at home.

Everton have only lost twice in their last 13 Premier League games and one loss in their last seven. Carlo Ancelotti’s side have not kept a clean sheet in their last six Premier League matches. The Toffees have only won once away in their last four fixtures and just three wins on the road this season.

Jorginho is suspended for Chelsea while Christian Pulisic (groin), Tammy Abraham (foot), and N’Golo Kante (groin) are all out. Willian, Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen and Callum Hudson-Odi may all feature after returning from injury.  Everton will be without Seamus Coleman (thigh), Morgan Schneiderlin (knee) and Jean Philippe-Gbamin (thigh). Lucas Digne could return from a muscular injury.

Despite Everton’s superior form, the points will be shared between these two sides. Chelsea’s win over Liverpool will give them a morale boost, but both teams poor defending means there will be goals.

Chelsea –4/5

Draw –11/4

Everton –16/5

Manchester United v Manchester City

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last seven fixtures in all competitions and have only conceded two goals in this run. In the Premier League, United are unbeaten in four, winning two and drawing two. They have one of the best home records in the league, losing just twice all season and once in their last 11 at Old Trafford.

Manchester City have won their last four consecutive matches, including the final of the EFL Cup against Aston Villa and an away Champions League victory over Real Madrid. City have won six of their last eight Premier League matches and lost just once in this run. Pep Guardiola’s side also have the second-best away record in the league, despite losing four times on the road this season.

Lee Grant (knock), Paul Pogba (ankle) and Marcus Rashford (back) are all ruled out for United. Daniel James, Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah may be available following injury. Aymeric Laporte is out for City with a thigh injury. Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane are set to return.

Both teams head into this fixture in good form so its likely to end in a draw. City and United have been difficult to beat of late so the points will be shared with both teams scoring.

Manchester United– 17/4

Draw –10/3

Manchester City –11/20
