33rd round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches: Crystal Palace-West Bromwich Albion, Everton-Burnley, Leicester-Swansea and Chelsea-Manchester Utd.
CRYSTAL PALACE - WEST BROMWICH
Crystal Palace is playing a great football and collecting really good results.
They have scored 22 goals in the last 12 matches and have collected 4 wins in a row.
The good trend could go on tomorrow against West Brom, one of the worst teams in the last period:
it has lost 4 of the last 5 matches, conceding 10 goals, 7 of them scored by QPR and Leicester which occupy the last positions on standings.
CRYSTAL PALACE: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, Bolasie,
McArthur, Jedinak, Zaha, Puncheon, Murray.
WEST BROM: Myhill, Dawson, McAuley, Lescott, Brunt, Morrison, Gardner, Fletcher, Yacob, Berahino, Anuchebe.
EVERTON - BURNLEY
Burnley was really unlucky against Tottenham and Arsenal, where has collected 1 point.
Wenger has spent good words for his colleague Dyche because Burnley has showed a good performance against Gunners which are destroying any opponent they face playing a great football in the last 2 months.
Everton occupies a safe position and has often showed a bad defensive solidity during this season.
Burnley needs points to stay in Premier League.
In our opinion this is a GOAL match.
EVERTON: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines,
Barry, Lennon, McCarthy, Osman, Kone, Lukaku.
BURNLEY: Heaton, Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Mee, Boyd, Arfield, Jones, Barnes, Vokes, Ings.
GOAL (1.78, Sporting Bet)
LEICESTER - SWANSEA
Leicester is the last team in the EPL, but after having collected 2 wins in a row, and with the knowledge they have to play 2 matches more, they have enough motivations to try to win another match.
Swansea has played a superb season, they now occupy the 8th position, too far from european places (10 points).
Double chance in seems to be the best choice.
LEICESTER: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Huth,
Schlupp, Cambiasso, James, Albrighton, Nugent, Vardy, Ulloa.
SWANSEA: Fabianski, Rangel, Amat, Fernandez, Williams, Ki, Cork, Shelvey, Sigurdsson, Routledge, Gomis.

CHELSEA - MANCHESTER UNITED
Chelsea has almost won the league: 7 points above Arsenal and 1 match more to play.
To say the truth Chelsea's performances haven't been amazing lately: eliminated from the Champions League, has won last 3 Premier League matches without being impressive.
United, instead, is collecting good results and Champions League qualification is much closer now.
Van Gaal has improved the efficiency of its squad by avoiding to use 2 forwarders, keeping Falcao and Van Persie on the bench and giving much more space to Fellaini who is scoring like a striker.
Mourinho could be satisfied with a draw and at the same time getting away Stamford Bridge with 3 points is a very hard mission for United and for these considerations we think a good X could be interesting.
CHELSEA: Courtois; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill,
Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Hazard, Oscar, Willian; Drogba.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Shaw; Blind; Herrera, Fellaini, Young, Mata; Rooney.
