Match Preview

Arsenal have slipped out of the top 4 and now reside in 6th. They are 6 points behind Liverpool, 7 behind City but have games in hand on both sides. Their form of late has been shocking and much of that criticism has been levelled at Wenger. The club looks set to announce a new deal for the out of favour manager, but he needs to secure a 4th place spot to sign the talent he needs for next season. They have lost 3 out of the last 4 in all competitions, their sole victory was over Lincoln City. In the league they’ve collected just 3 points from the last 5 league fixtures, with 1 win and 4 defeats. They conceded 3 goals in 3 of those defeats, scoring just one in reply. The most recent defeat was against West Brom, Arsenal unable to cope with the physical presence and unwillingness to play open football. At home their record is better, with 6 wins from the last 7 league games. Their only failure was their shock defeat to Watford at the end of January. Arsenal have won 9, drawn 2 and lost 2 at home this season. Games are generally entertaining averaging 3 goals per game. They’ve only failed to score on 1 occasion and have kept 5 clean sheets. Sanchez remains their star player, with 18 goals and 9 assists. Wellbeck is back from injury and should find more room to influence the game against a Man City side who play an open style. Man City have moved up into 3rd but are now 12 points behind Chelsea. It’s unlikely that they will be able to close the gap but will be looking to secure a Champions League place as early as possible. They are unbeaten in their last 7 league games, with 4 wins and 3 draws. Their away from is also improving with 3 consecutive away league victories, all to nil. They are yet to draw a single match away from home with 10 wins and 4 defeats. Games average around 3.3 goals per game with 5 clean sheets kept. Aguero leads the way with 13 league goals, but injury and a spell on the bench has seen him have a less effective season that usual. This game should be very interesting and both sides need 3 points. Sane and Aguero are both looking good, and Sanchez has to carry this team. Goals should be guaranteed, but the high quality of City may be countered byu the home advantage of Arsenal.

Match Preview

This is a huge relegation 6 pointer with Swansea currently sitting 17th in the league on 27 points,  3 above Hull who occupy the final relegation place. A good run of form has dipped recently with 2 successive away defeats. They won 2 and lost 3 in the last 5 league fixtures and were beaten comfortably by Bournemouth in their last outing.  At home their form is better with 3 successive league victories. They’ve taken 3 points off good sides including Leicester and Southampton. Llorente and Sigurdsson are the key players in this side and in games where they fail to make an impact, the side generally loses. They have 19 league goals between them, with Llorente on 11. Sigurdsson is the sides playmaker and has registered 11 assists so far this season, 9 more than the nearest player. Games average 3.65 goals per game at the Liberty Stadium with Swansea scoring 1.5 but concededing at 2.2. They’ve collected 17 points at home with 5 wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats. The recent form is much better and it’s the home form which may carry them to safety. Middlesbrough have changed their manager but it’s not seen a change in fortune. They’ve failed to win in their last 11 Premier League fixtures and have lost the last 3. They sit 19th in the table 5 points behind todays opponents on 22 points. They’ve scored just 1 goal in the past 5 league fixtures and their inability to score goals is a huge issue. They’ve scored just 20 league goals in 28 games averaging around 0.7 per game. Away from home that record is worse with just 8 scored in 14 fixtures. Games are generally low scoring with just 1.7 goals per game. They’ve collected 1 win, 6 draws and 7 defeats away from home, they look to sit deep and grab a point. This game should be low scoring, but the home side are improving and have the ability to score goals. Boro are unlikely to grab a goal in this fixture, which means a home win or draw is likely.

Match Preview

Southampton have lost 3 and won 2 of their last 5 league games. They currently occupy 10th position in the league on 33 points, but have 2 games in hand on the majority of the sides around them. With 33 points they are not guaranteed a place in the Premier League next season, but we are almost certain they will stay up. The game against Spurs was a tough defeat for Southampton. They had a chance with Kane being injured, but the injury to the inform Gabbiadini dented thier hopes. He remains injured fot this fixture and that is another big blow in the South Coast derby. At home they have lost 3 from the last 5, with victories over Middlesbrough and Leicester. They were comfortably defeated by West Ham in their last home outing. At home this season they have won 5, drawn 3 and lost 4 from their 12 games. Games average under 2.4 goals per game, evenly split with 14  for and against. They’ve failed to score on 2 occasions at home this season but have kept 5 clean sheets. With Gabbiadini injured goals will likely be in short supply, with Long (3) or Rodriguez (4) expected to start. Bournemouth looked like they might be in a relegation scrap, but the 1-1 draw away at Man United has given them confidence, winning their last 2 league games back to back. That has seen them move to 11th in the league, level on points with todays opponents. They are unbeaten in the last 3 league games, but have lost 4 from the last 5 away from home.Their away form this season has generally been poor with 2 victories and 3 draws gained in 14 away fixtures. Games are generally high scoring averaging almost 3.5 goals per game. King now has 11 league goals and is starting to look a real quality striker. Bournemouth have the better form and an inform striker. Southampton have the home advantage but are missing key players. With both sides all but safe from relegation it should be a great game to watch.

Match Preview

Burnley have not won in their last 6 league fixtures with 3 draws and 3 defeats. They sit 13th in the league on 32 points, 8 clear of the relegation places with 9 games to go. Their recent form is worrying, but with 3 draws in the last 5 league fixtures, they are picking up points and getting closer to that 40 points safety cushion. They have been phenominal at home so far this season, and have lost just 1 of the last 9 home leauge fixtures. They’ve also won 5 from the last 6 at home, the only blip a draw against Chelsea. They are missing some key midfielders, but they will be set to play long with counter-attacking football against Spurs. At home this have won 9, drawn 2 and lost 3 of their 14 games. They average 1.6 goals per game and concede just 0.86 including 9 clean sheets. Goals are spread fairly evenly amongst the team with Gray taking the lead on 8 goals. Spurs are maintaining the pressure on the top of the table, but sit 2nd on 59 points, 10 behind Chelsea. They have won 4 out of the last 5 league games, losing just once at Liverpool. Away from home they are withouth a win in the last 3 fixtures including a 0-0 draw against Sunderland. That result and the missing Kane is a huge issue for Spurs. Without their front man they may struggle against a side who ‘park the bus’. With 4 wins, 6 draws and 3 defeats away from home, their form isn’t great. They concede a goal per game on average and score just 1.5, compared to 2.3 at home. Kane (19) and Alli (14) lead the way in the goalscoring charts, but look lacklustre when the partnership is broken up. They’ve failed to score on 4 occasions away from home. Without Kane Spurs struggled earlier in the season, especially with sides who were better defensively. Burnley will hit Spurs on the counter and Turf Moor is no easy place to go. There is defintely value in backing the home side to get something from a low scoring game.

Match Preview

Chelsea are 10 points clear at the top of the league with 8 games to go. They have 69 points and will be looking to break 90 by the end of the season. They have the best goal difference in the league 4 clear of Spurs who sit 2nd. They have won 6 and drawn 2 of the last 8 league fixtures and have won the last 10 consecutive league fixtures at Stamford Bridge. They have scored 2 goals or more in all of those fixtures except a 1-0 victory over West Brom. Hazard has picked up a slight knock, but we expect him to feature in this fixture. Chelsea have won the last 2 league meetings between the sides, but lost in this fixture last season. The Chelsea right now are a different beast than the side that lost in August 2015. Costa and Hazard have ressurected that formidable partnership, with 28 league goals between them. At home Chelsea have won 12 league games and have lost 1, collecting 36 points from the 39 available. They score 2.77 goals per game on average, with just 7 conceded so far this season. They have never failed to score at home in the league this season and have kept 7 clean sheets. Palace have moved 4 points clear of the relegation places with 3 consecutive league victories. They have won those games to nil and show the defensive focus Big Sam is known for. Away from home they have 3 defeats and 2 victories, accumulating 3 points at Bournemouth and West Brom. They have some injury concerns but Benteke and Zaha are both available. With 4 wins and 3 draws in 13 away games their away form is good for a side battling relegation. They score an average of 1.5 goals per game, but concede 1.86. They have the firepower that many of the other sides are missing, and their new organised defence has started yielding results. They’ve kept just 2 clean sheets away from home in the league, both coming recently, and have only failed to score on 2 ocassions. They are likely to sit back and absorb the pressure here, and it’s expected that Chelsea will dominate the game. It’s likely that Chelsea will win this game to nil, but Big Sam would love to throw a spanner in the works.

Match Preview

Watford are currently 7 points clear of the relegation places on 31 points with 10 games to go. They currently occupy 14th and although the gap should be enough for safety they would like to reach the 40 point mark and enjoy the run in. They’ve lost 3 out of the last Premier League fixtures, including a disappointing defeat away at Crystal Palace. At home they’ve lost just once in the last 5 fixtures, and that was 3-4 defeat by Southampton last week. They still have key players out through injury, with Pereyra the most important. They’ve collected 19 points from 14 home games this season, with 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 defeats. Games average over 3 goals per game, fairly evenly split between between the home and away sides. They’ve kept just 2 clean sheets and have failed to score on 2 occasions at home, so games are generally openly fought contests. Deeney (9) and Capoue (5)lead the goal scoring charts but more support is needed. Sunderland remain bottom of the league despite the point against Burnley. They are 7 points from safety on 20 points, 4 behind Hull who occupy 18th. They’ve collected just 1 point from the last 4 league games, failing to score in all of those fixtures. Away from home they have won 1 of the last 7 fixtures, but that was the impressive 0-4 win over Palace. Defoe scored during the international break and showed he can still do it on the highest level. He’s scored 14 of the 24 league goals so far this season, and if he doesn’t score, neither do Sunderland. They’ve won 2, drawn 1 and lost 10 on the road so far this season, scoring just 10 goals in those 13 games. They concede at almost 2 goals per game away from home, keeping just 1 away clean sheet all season. Defoe has been quiet for Sunderland of late, but his international goal may give him confidence. Watfords home record is good compared to Sunderland’s away form and a home win is expected here.
