Premier League Round-Up – 12/05/19

Premier League Round-Up – 12/05/19

Betting predictions for the last day of the 2018/19 Premier League season

Following another season full of the expected excitement, drama, joy and upset, the Premier League comes to an end on Sunday afternoon, where every team play one another for one last time before every point, every resulting position, every goal and every moment is set in stone as a part of football history.

Rather than looking at each individual game, we’ve taken a brief look at each fixture to provide calculated betting predictions over what we expect will happen on the final day of the Premier League season.

Brighton v Manchester City

It previously looked like Brighton might need to get a result against Manchester City if the closeness between them and Cardiff City continued, leaving each team equally as likely to be relegated to the Championship, but with The Seagulls now safe from the drop due to Cardiff City’s confirmed relegation last week, Chris Hughton’s side no longer have anything to play for. Between this factor and the thirteen-game winning streak being conducted by Manchester City, we need to predict a win for Pep Guardiola’s side, who need to take three points in order to claim the Premier League title.

Sergio Aguero Manchester City

A win for Manchester City will confirm their second successive Premier League title under Pep Guardiola.

Burnley v Arsenal

Any remaining chance of clinching Champions League football is quickly sliding out of the hands of Arsenal, but they’ve got a slim opportunity to turn things around away to Burnley on the final day. The Clarets have had an awful season, only turning things around late to avoid relegation, but The Gunners aren’t the best at following through in the most crucial moments. Burnley’s home form only consists of two wins from their last five, losing the other three, but Arsenal have lost their last two away from home. The safest option would be to back both teams to score over ninety minutes in order to appease both statistics.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos Arsenal

Based on the result of local derby rivals Spurs, Arsenal could still qualify for next season’s Champions League if they defeat Burnley.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth

Neither Crystal Palace nor Bournemouth hold anything especially important left to play for as they meet on Sunday. Palace’s home form is a mixed bag dating back to February, as they’ve won two, drawn two and lost three of their last seven at Selhurst Park. Bournemouth are notoriously bad away from home, winning two and drawing one of their last fourteen outside of the Vitality Stadium. Even predicting the number of goals comes with its difficulties, making it easier to predict a goal to occur over each half of the game, where there’s not even any restrictions over who will be scoring these goals.

Recommended Bet: A goal in both halves at 8/13 on BetVictor – BET HERE

Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will be hoping to maintain their position in the table as Bournemouth sit one point below them.

Fulham v Newcastle United

Using the meeting with Fulham as a training exercise more than anything worthwhile, Newcastle don’t possess anything to play for other than the opportunity to maintain their place in the table. Burnley are two points behind The Magpies, so a win for The Clarets at home to Arsenal and no points for Newcastle would lead to a fifteenth place finish rather than the current fourteenth place finish they’re expected to take. Fulham are performing better since they had their relegation back to the Championship confirmed but Newcastle pose a threat to all lowly sides, making both teams to score seem like the best market to get behind.

Newcastle United Rafa Benitez

Safe from relegation by eleven points, Newcastle possess no need to worry on the final day of the season.

Leicester City v Chelsea

Even the vast improvements made by Brendan Rodgers didn’t prompt a miracle against Manchester City on Monday night, as Leicester City narrowly lost to the Premier League champions. That being said, their performance against Pep Guardiola’s men was nothing short of fantastic, with Vincent Kompany’s goal of the season contender being the only way of deciding the tie. Chelsea are far from perfect despite confirming their place in the Europa League on Thursday evening, making it possible to see an outcome whereby The Foxes take something from the fixture. As it’s a tough game to call, we’d advise getting behind Jamie Vardy to score instead. He’s scored six goals in his last six games for the club, he’s experienced in netting past all of the toughest teams in the Premier League, and his Player of the Month Award for April only amplifies the impressive form he’s currently enjoying.

Pedro Rodriguez Olivier Giroud Chelsea

Regardless of their Europa League campaign, Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea could do with winning their final game to bolster his chances of staying past the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur v Everton

After an absolutely spectacular week for Spurs which saw them push their way through to the Champions League final, it’s impossible envisage any outcome other than Tottenham finishing their season on a high with three points over Everton. Wolves sitting four points ahead of Everton means that the Toffees no longer have anything to play for and one win from their last four outings only boosts Spurs’ chances of winning. Tottenham aren’t in the strongest form, losing their last three games prior to the second leg with Ajax, but defeating Everton will confirm their place in the top four, also halting local derby rivals Arsenal.

Heung-Min Son Tottenham Hotspur Spurs

With derby rivals Arsenal behind them by three points, a defeat to Everton could mean handing their Champions League place to the team they hate the most.

Liverpool v Wolves

Impressively reaching seventh in the Premier League has shown an ability to over-perform for newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers. They’ll suffer a massive challenge at Anfield though, facing a Liverpool side unbeaten at home in the league since April 2017 who’ve just come out of a massively against-the-odds win over Barcelona. Liverpool, of course, also need to secure another win in order to stand a chance of beating Manchester City to the Premier League title in case they falter away to Brighton, so even potentially without Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino, we expect a convincing win against Nuno’s Wolves.

Virgil van Dijk Liverpool

Man City will win the league as long as they beat Brighton, but Liverpool need to defeat Wolves in case there’s a surprise over at the AMEX.

Manchester United v Cardiff City

What could have easily been an impressive turnaround for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ended up being as disappointing an end to the term as was expected back when Jose Mourinho was into his final days at the club. Manchester United are now without Champions League football for next season, with the only consolation being that the nine gap between them and seventh place Wolves means that they’re at least set to play in the Europa League. Cardiff’s last seven games have resulted with just one win, losing the remaining six, so even the hoodoo of it being Solskjaer’s former club won’t be enough to stop a far superior Man United.

Recommended Bet: Man United to win to nil at 29/20 on BetVictor – BET HERE

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could do with winning Manchester United’s final game after they fell short of Champions League qualification last week. He faces a side he relegated back in 2014.

Southampton v Huddersfield Town

There was a point where this final game could have ended up being a fight for safety between Southampton and Huddersfield Town, but with the Saints safe from the drop by seven points and the Terriers already cemented at the bottom of the table, this game has nothing resting on it. Huddersfield impressively held Manchester United to a draw last week, but with Southampton taking positives from any available area and three wins and a draw from the last five games at St Mary’s, we expect this to be a home win for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s gradually improving side.

Danny Ings Southampton

Southampton have officially survived relegation to the Championship. A minor confidence boost could be taken from defeating already-relegated Huddersfield.

Watford v West Ham United

Not a lot remains to fight for on the final day of the Premier League season apart from the title between Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as confirming already likely top four places for several of the division’s better sides. One game that has the potential to surprise a lot of neutral fans is Watford v West Ham United, where the winner will conclude the campaign in the top half of the table. Each side has shown plenty of ability throughout the term due to the impressive nature of Javi Gracia and Manuel Pellegrini, and with something to play for, we at least expect both teams to score.

Recommended Bet: Both teams to score at 1/2 on William Hill – BET HERE

Watford v West Ham United Troy Deeney

With a point standing between the two, the winner of Watford v West Ham United will clinch a finish in the top half of the Premier League.
