The Premier League this weekend has a number of intriguing fixtures in store for us. Three derbies, one at Manchester one at London adding to the Tyne-Wear derby are all packed in the 31st round of the domestic league in England this weekend.
This season has never been easy to predict but like every week we have bought you the predictions for all the games this weekend. Here are the predictions for the 31st round of the Premier League fixtures:
- Everton vs Arsenal:
A crunch tie for both clubs who have their own brand of football. Everton have not been able to take full advantage of winning situations and Arsenal have not been consistent with their results. This has all the making of at tense tie.
Our Prediction: Everton 2-2 Arsenal
- Crystal Palace vs Leicester City:
With just one win in the year and 5 losses in the last 5 home games, the Selhurst Park franchise hardly stand a chance against the resilience of the top of the table club Leicester City who can open up an 8 point gap by the end of the weekend.
Our Prediction: Crystal Palace 0-1 Leicester City
- West Bromwich Albion vs Norwich City:
The Baggies are unbeaten in the last four league games and will surely stand favorites against relegation threatened Norwich City who will have to be at their best to get anything from this game.
Our Prediction: WBA 2-1 Norwich City
- Watford vs Stoke City:
A clash between two closely matched sides, Watford and Stoke is harder than many to call. Both clubs have played some good football and it will be an interesting game for the neutral eye.
Our Prediction: Watford 3-2 Stoke City
- Chelsea vs West Ham United:
Chelsea are unbeaten in the last 12 league games but will not find it easy against Bilic’s side, fresh from a 3-2 victory against Everton. Chelsea however playing at home will be expected to take something from this game.
Our Prediction: Chelsea 0-0 West Ham United.
- Swansea City vs Aston Villa:
Villa are all but out of the top flight next season and will only have pride to play for. The Swans at the other end are safe for this season and will be hoping to finish the season on a high starting with this game against the bottom side.
Our Prediction: Swansea City 2-0 Aston Villa
- Southampton vs Liverpool:
St Marys hosts a superb tie this weekend between the Saints and the Reds, two teams that are too closely matched for a prediction. The recent success for Klopp might just give them an edge in this game.
Our Prediction: Southampton 2-3 Liverpool
- Newcastle United vs Sunderland:
Two clubs fighting relegation this season in a derby game is the closest any game can come to being the most important for them in the season. The Magpies will want to take all three points from this game and gain some ground in the battle at the bottom.
Our Prediction: Newcastle United 2-1 Sunderland
- Tottenham Hotspur vs AFC Bournemouth:
The Spurs have been excellent this season and will be expected to make light work of the Cherries when they meet at the White Hart Lane this weekend. It will be a game Pochettino’s men are expected to win but stranger things have happened.
Our Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 AFC Bournemouth
- Manchester City vs Manchester United:
United will face their last chance of a top 4 spot when they travel to the Etihad in a sizzling Manchester derby this weekend. Pellegrini’s men will go into the game as favorites but a derby can never be easy to predict let alone a Manchester derby.
Our Prediction: Manchester City 1-1 Manchester United
