31st round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches.
ARSENAL - LIVERPOOL
Liverpool has lost last match in Anfield against Manchester United, playing really bad.
3 players unavailable for the next match against Arsenal: Skrtel, Gerrard and Sturridge(very important absences).
Arsenal instead is playing really good lately and has collected 8 home wins in a row conceding 1 goal only in the last five.
ARSENAL: Ospina; Bellerin, Koscielny, Gabriel, Gibbs;
Ramsey, Coquelin; Sanchez, Cazorla, Ozil; Giroud.

POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-1
EVERTON - SOUTHAMPTON
Very tough match to bet on.
Everton needs points to stay in Premier League, after a really weird season, while Southampton is fighting for a place in Europa League.
Looking at stats we notice a certain Everton's tendency to draw home matches (7 in 14 games), while Southampton has already won 7 times when playing away.
A good X could be an interesting choice, but in our opinion is better to avoid betting on this match.
EVERTON: Howard - Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines - Lennon, McCarthy, Barry, Osman - Koné,
SOUTHAMPTON: Davis - Clyne, Fonte, Alderweireld, Bertrand - Wanyama, Schneiderlin - Long, Davis, Mane - Pellè

LEICESTER - WEST HAM
West Ham has 42 points: they are too far both from "European" places and relegation zone.
They can play without any kind of pressure and in this away game in Leicester they could be defeated by the ooponent which is the last team in Premier League and is in real need of collecting points.
1X should be a good compromise: 1.40 odds offered at Matchbook, which is currently offering a £/€ 25 Free Bet, are not bad.
LEICESTER: Schwarzer - Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Upson, Schlupp - Nugent, Cambiasso, James, Vardy -
WEST HAM: Adrian - Jenkinson, Collins, Kouyaté, Cresswell - Song, Noble - Downing, Nolan, Jarvis - Sakho
1X (1.40, MatchBook)
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-1
MANCHESTER UNITED - ASTON VILLA
Aston Villa has become much more offensive after Tim Sherwood became the coach, but
getting out Old Trafford with a good result is really hard. In our opinion Red Devils will have the best in a match where goals are expected.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Blind; Carrick,
Herrera, Fellaini; Young, Mata, Rooney.
ASTON VILLA: Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Hutton; N’Zogbia, Sanchez, Delph, Sinclair; Benteke, Agbonlahor.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 3-1
CHELSEA - STOKE CITY
Chelsea has 6 points of advantage on Manchester City and one match more to play.
1st place seems to be safe but Mourinho will ask his players to be concentrated because Chelsea needs to collect 6 point in the next two games before fighting Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Chelsea has an amazing home trend: in the last 22 matches in Stamford Bridge has conceded 8 goals only, keeping its goal unbeaten in 16 occasions.
CHELSEA: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry,
Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Hazard, Oscar, Willian; Costa.
STOKE CITY: Begovic; Bardsley, Wollscheid, Shawcross, Pieters; Whelan, N’Zonzi; Arnautovic, Adam, Diouf; Walters.
