32nd round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches.
SOUTHAMPTON - HULL CITY
Southampton has lost a bit of continuity in results, but they can still hope for a place in the next Europa League.
Southampton still has the best defense in Premier League with 22 goals conceded only, while Hull City struggles a lot in scoring when playing away (12 goals in 16 matches).
We expect it's going to be harder for Hull to make a good result considering two important absences( Jelavic and Ramirez).
Very possible the 10th UNDER 2.5 in a row for Southampton as well as home win.
SOUTHAMPTON: Davis; Clyne, Fonte, Alderweireld, Bertrand;
Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Davis, Tadic; Long, Pellè.
HULL CITY: McGregor; Dawson, Bruce, Davies, Elmohamady; Diame, Livermore, Brady, Quinn; Hernandez, N’Doye.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-0
TOTTENHAM - ASTON VILLA
Aston Villa started this season collecting a lot of UNDER 2.5, but since Sherwood took place of Lambert as coach, Villagers became an "OVER 2.5 team": 4 OVERs in the last 5 matches, and considering Tottenham tend to score and concede with ease lately too(6 OVERs in the last 7 games), and that the two strikers are both scoring with regularity (Kane and Benteke), yeah...in our opinion this is a GOAL match.
TOTTENHAM: Vorm; Chiriches, Dier, Vertonghen, Rose;
Bentaleb, Mason; Chadli, Eriksen, Townsend; Kane.
ASTON VILLA: Guzan; Bacuna, Vlaar, Clark, Richardson; N’Zogbia, Cleverley, Sanchez, Delph; Agbonlahor, Benteke.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-1
SUNDERLAND - CRYSTAL PALACE
Since Pardew sat on the bench, Crystal Palace has adopted a very offensive gamestyle, even when facing stronger teams, as seen on Monday against Manchester City.
Sunderland needs points to avoid relegation, but looking at stats, we notice their tendency to concede too many goals when playing home (worst 2nd home defense in Premier League).
It is going to be a very open match where goals should not be missing since Defoe and Murray have already showed several times they can put the ball in the net although their age.
SUNDERLAND: Pantilimon, Jones, Vergini, O’Shea, Van
Aanholt, Coates, Cattermole, Gomez, Defoe, Fletcher, Wickham.
CRYSTAL PALACE: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Gayle, Zaha, Puncheon, McArthur, Murray, Bolasie.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-1
BURNLEY - ARSENAL
Arsenal is the best team of the last period in England.
It has won the last 7 Premier League games, outclassing opponents, scoring a lot and showing a great coral game mixed with high skilled individualities of its top players.
Arsenal with Ramsey, Ozil and Giroud is simply amazing, especially the french striker, who scored 10 goals in the last 10 appearances and seems he doesn't want to stop this trend.
BURNLEY: Heaton; Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Mee; Boyd,
Arfield, Jones, Barnes; Ings, Vokes.
ARSENAL: Ospina; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Gabriel, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla; Ramsey, Sanchez, Ozil; Giroud.
