36th round of English Premier League. In this post tips and reviews of Saturday matches.
EVERTON - SUNDERLAND
Everton has collected 16 points in the last 7 matches, the same amount of points they accumulated in the previous 19 matches.
Toffies have kept their goal unbeaten in 6 of the last 7 home matches, obtaning 4 wins, while Sunderland hasn't won for the last 8 away appearances.

Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Barkley, Lennon, Lukaku.

ASTON VILLA - WEST HAM
With 3 matches left to play Aston Villa is still in a uncertain situation: 2 points above relegation.
Tomorrow they are forced to win against West Ham which is playing without any particular pressure since they have already reached a safe position in the league table.
West Ham has been playing really bad for some months, especially after Andy Carroll's injury, and for the next match also Sakho is unavailable.
Hammers haven't obtained a win for the last 10 away matches and in 5 of the last 7 away matches haven't never scored a goal.
Motivations count at the end of the season and considering West Ham's sterility in scoring goals we have a propensity for the 1.
ASTON VILLA: Given, Bacuna, Okore, Vlaar, Richardson,
Cleverley, Westwood, Delph, Grealish, Agbonlahor, Benteke.
WEST HAM: Adrian, Jenkinson, Collins, Burke, Cresswell, Noble, Song, Kouyate, Downing, Nolan, Valencia.
1 (1.90, Sporting Bet)
STOKE CITY - TOTTENHAM
Tottenham is fighting for the 6th place which would mean Europa League.
Stoke occupies the 10 position in the league table and has been playing the last matches with the only aim to make their supporters satisfied.
Stoke has always scored at least one goal in the last 9 home matches played, while Tottenham has collected 13 OVER 2.5 in the last 14 away appearances and considering both teams are quite offensive GOAL and OVER 2.5 are the best choices in terms of betting.
STOKE CITY: Begovic, Bardsley, Shawcross, Muniesa,
Pieters, N’Zonzi, Adam, Whelan, Arnautovic, Walters, Crouch.
TOTTENHAM: Lloris, Dier, Fazio, Vertonghen, Rose, Mason, Bentaleb, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Kane.
CRYSTAL PALACE - MANCHESTER UNITED
After reaching the safety, Crystal Palace has collected 3 losses in a row.
Red devils lost the last round in Old Trafford against West Brom, giving proof of their bad defensive solidity, anyway after 3 losses in a row they are forced to win this away game, otherwise the 4th position will be very hard to keep.

Jedinak, McArthur; Bolasie, Puncheon, Zaha; Murray.
MANCHESTER UNITED: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Jones, Blind; Mata, Herrera, Rooney, Fellaini, Young; Van Persie.
