32nd round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Sunday matches: QPR - Chelsea and the Manchester derby.
QPR - CHELSEA
Manchester City's loss against Crystal Palace on Monday has virtually given Chelsea the title.
Manchester City is 9 points below Chelsea now and mainly doesn't occupy the second position anymore: Citizens are 4th, while Arsenal reached the second place and is 4 points below Chelsea but Gunners have played 2 match more than the Blues.
Chelsea needs to win against a QPR which is totally involved in the fight to avoid the relegation.
QPR is scoring a lot(4 goal to West Brom and 3 to Aston Villa, with striker Austin really on a good shape).
In our opinion Chelsea will have the best in a match where OVER2.5 is expected (it would be the 8th in a row for QPR).
QPR: Green; Traore, Onuoha, Caulker, Hill;
Phillips, Sandro, Barton, Kranjcar; Austin, Zamora.
CHELSEA: Courtois; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas, Oscar; Willian, Hazard, Remy.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-2
MANCHESTER UNITED - MANCHESTER CITY
Manchester United has collected 8 OVER2.5 in the last 10 home matches, scoring at least 2 goals in 9 occasions. Last 6 matches against these teams in Old Trafford all ended OVER 2.5 and this sign could occur again today.
Generally speaking Red Devils are playing a good football lately, while Citizens are struggling a lot and have lost the second place. They are now 4th and looking at their last appearances, we think Manchester United is favourite, considering also the absence of Kompany and the lack of goals of Aguero, who hasn't scored for 556 minutes.
Anyway this is a derby, stats could be unuseful in a match like this where motivation has a decisive role.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Blind; Carrick,
Herrera; Mata, Fellaini, Young; Rooney.
MANCHESTER CITY: Hart, Sagna, Mangala, Demichelis, Clichy, Nasri, Fernandinho, Toure, Milner, Silva, Aguero.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 2-1
