35th round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches.
ASTON VILLA - EVERTON
Everton played an awful beginning of the season but after Europa League elimination they collected a good series of results: 16 points collected in the last 6 matches, the same they got in the previous 19 matches.
The problem is Everton can't reach an useful position for the qualification for the next Europa League and for that we think motivation could start to be missing for the final rounds of Premier League.
Villagers need points to stay in Premier League since last teams on tables such as Hull and Leicester have gained vital points lately.
2 points gap from relegation forces Aston Villa to win this home match and in our opinion double chance in should be the safest choice.
ASTON VILLA: Guzan; Bacuna, Okore, Vlaar, Richardson;
N’Zogbia, Westwood, Cleverley, Delph; Grealish, Benteke.
EVERTON: Howard; Coleman, Stones, Jagielka, Baines; McCarthy, Barry, Barkley; Lennon, Mirallas, Lukaku.
SWANSEA - STOKE CITY
It is probalby going to be a pleasant match between two teams which love the offensive football and occupy a safe position on the league table.
Swansea has always conceded goals in the last 8 matches played.
Both teams to score has good odds and considering that Stoke has collected this sign 6 times in the last 6 matches, we suggest to bet on it.
SWANSEA: Fabianski; Rangel, Fernandez, Williams,
Taylor; Cork, Shelvey; Montero, Sigurdsson, Dyer; Oliviera.
STOKE CITY: Begovic; Bardsley, Shawcross, Wollscheid, Pieters; N’Zonzi, Whelan, Adam; Diouf, Arnautovic, Walters.
LIVERPOOL - QPR
Liverpool is 7 points far from Champions League qualification and if they don't get good results in the last matches the possibility to lose the 5th place is concrete since Tottenham has the same points and Southampton just 1 below.
Liverpool has had a good trend in its home matches for the whole season and in the last 6 home matches won 5 times always scoring at least 2 goals.
QPR is fighting to avoid relegation but has rarely been impressive in its away matches during this season and has always conceded at least 2 goals each match in 13 of the last 16 away games.
OVER 2.5 sounds interesting.
LIVERPOOL: Mignolet; Can, Lovren, Skrtel,
Moreno; Henderson, Gerrard, Allen; Lallana, Sterling, Coutinho.
QPR: Green; Isla, Dunne, Caulker, Yun; Phillips, Sandro, Barton, Henry; Zamora, Austin.
MANCHESTER UNITED - WEST BROM
West Brom is almost safe: 7 points above relegation with 4 matches left to play and considering there are other 3 teams below WBA they can play without particular pressure.
United needs to win the remaining 4 matches in order to reach the 2nd or 3rd place and avoid Champions League preliminaries.
Red Devils have had a great home trend for the whole season: 14 wins in 17 matches scoring 40 goals (the best home attack in Premier League).
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea, Shaw, Smalling, McNair, Valencia,
Blind, Young, Herrera, Fellaini, Mata, Rooney.
WEST BROM: Myhill, Brunt, Lescott, McAuley, Dawson, Morrison, Yacob, Fletcher, Gardner, Berahino, Anichebe.
