Three things we expect to happen in the Premier League this weekend


jamie vardyIn a regular feature, we make three predictions on what we think will happen in this weekend’s round of Premier League action as the competition reaches its dramatic close.

Leicester to draw at Palace

Leicester snuck past a determined Newcastle United side to win 1-0 on Monday evening and maintained their five point lead at the top of the Premier League table. This Saturday they travel to FA Cup semi-finalists Crystal Palace who are currently looking to scrape together the last half a dozen or so points needed to ensure their top flight status for another season.

Despite Eagles manager Alan Pardew proclaiming his side were in a ‘relegation battle’ a couple of weeks back, we’re more than confident that they have enough quality in the likes of Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha to see them over the finish line this season.

With the confidence gained from their 2-0 win over Reading in the quarter final of the FA Cup and home advantage to boot, we’re going to stick our necks out and back Palace to earn a much-needed point against the Foxes on Saturday.

Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Leicester City

The Hammers to win at Stamford Bridge

As we predicted, Chelsea became the first English casualty of the Champions League round of 16 after losing 2-1 to PSG at Stamford Bridge last week. With the Blues’ season all but over, sans their pipe dream of still reaching the top four and qualifying for the Champions League, Dutch manager Gus Hiddink may find it difficult to galvanise his man for the arrival of high-flying West Ham on Saturday.

Their East London rivals have defied all expectations this season and a win on Saturday followed by a Manchester City defeat would move them into fourth place with just eight games to go.

With the likes of Dimitri Payet and Mark Noble becoming unplayable this season for the Irons, we wouldn’t be surprised to see them get all three points at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-2 West Ham

Everton to put the final nail in Arsenal coffin

As expected, Arsenal’s European adventure ended on Wednesday night after their all-too-predictable defeat at the Nou Camp. With morale on the floor and the all-too-familiar ‘Wenger out’ campaigns resurfacing from the fans (as well as this plonker who amazingly, decided to burn his shirt during the week), you have to question the Gunners’ chances for Saturday’s lunch time kick-off against an Everton side buoyed from their 2-0 FA Cup victory over Chelsea last Saturday.

With Everton’s powerful striker Romelu Lukaku also in unplayable form after this stunning goal last Saturday, we reckon the Toffees can pile more misery on the Gunners this weekend with a win at Goodison Park.

Prediction: Everton 2-1 Arsenal
