It’s been another great season of Premier League football and sadly it comes to an end this Sunday with the final games. Fortunately the World Cup is just another the corner so we won’t have to wait too long for more top-class football. In the meantime, we have the final games of the Premier League to look forward and of course some more betting opportunities. We had brilliant midweek with 5/6 bets coming through, let’s finish the season off with another successful round of betting.
Premier League Preview
The Champions and the Strugglers
The biggest match of the last several weeks in the Premier League on Tuesday night when Swansea took on Southhampton. In what was a classic battle for survival, Southhampton just got the edge on the night and secured Premier League survival and condemned Swansea to the Championship.
Southampton will host the Premier League champions Manchester City in their final game in what will surely be a celebratory St Mary’s. City still have their eye on finishing on 100 points for the season and setting another record, few will doubt they will fail in their quest.
Au Revoir Arsene Wenger
It’s the final weekend of the Premier League and it’s also the final time we’ll Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager and it’s probably the last time we’ll Arsene involved in the English game. While there is nothing of note left to play for in the Premier League, all eye’s will probably turn to Arsene’s final game as Arsenal manager. Fittingly it will be at Huddersfield, where Arsenal’s previous great manager made his name, Herbert Chapman.
Huddersfield themselves have come through the bastion of fire in the last week, first holding out Manchester City for a draw and then Chelsea to secure their place in the Premier League. They can finally relax now, and after the amount of effort and sheer will they have shown, they probably will ease off the gas. Arsenal have been dismal this season, this is their final chance to say a proper thank you to their longest serving manager and in typical Arsenal fashion, they probably will put in a performance just as all the pressure is off them.
A Date at Wembley
Manchester United face Watford before their FA Cup final against Chelsea next at Wembley. United’s striker Romelu Lukaku is struggling to be fit for the final so this is the final game for Mourinho to pick from one his other young strikers. Both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been in poor form of late, this will be their final chance to convince their manager they are men to start in the final.
Chelsea will travel up to the northeast to face their old manager Rafa Benitez with Newcastle United. Chelsea missed the chance to go level on points with Liverpool in midweek failing to get the winner against a determined Huddersfield. Still, they can look forward to coming back to Wembley next week for the cup final and some silverware for the season.
Spurs will play their last game at Wembley before moving back to their renovated home ground at White Hart Lane. Of course, it could have been their penultimate game at the national stadium had they as they should have done won the semi-final of the FA Cup.
Still, Spurs will finish in the top-four and qualify for the Champions League next season but it could have and should have been much more this season. Spurs will face Leicester City, who have been on the holiday’s it seems since February. Don’t expect this one to be a classic, both teams might just settle for a point each.
Misery Loves Company
A few months ago Swansea city had fought their way out of certain relegation into a position of relative safety in the Premier League only to be drawn back into the fight and ultimately being relegated. There will probably not be a more depressing place than the Liberty Stadium with relegated Swansea taking relegated Stoke city for their final game in the Premier League foreseeable future.
Along with Swansea, West Brom too were relegated in midweek thanks to Huddersfield’s brave draw away to Chelsea. West Brom can be proud they have at least they have gone down fighting and if they can reproduce the same spirit and determination, they will surely be back up to the Premier League sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, they take on Crystal Palace for their last game, who themselves looked doomed until Roy Hodgson took over. Crystal Palace have been in great form in the last two months and the table shows how much they’ve come on since Roy Hodgson has come onboard.
