EPL 2017/18 - Week 29

Burnley v/s Everton - Home win
Leicester v/s Bournemouth - Home win
Southampton v/s Stoke - Draw
Tottenham v/s Huddersfield - Home win
Swansea v/s West Ham - Draw
Watford v/s West Brom - Home win
Liverpool v/s Newcastle - Home win
Brighton v/s Arsenal - Away win
Man City v/s Chelsea - Home win
Crystal Palace v/s Man Utd - Draw

It seems there is no manager under more pressure than Arsene Wenger these days. Pundits, commentators and even ex-Arsenal players are calling for his head, tired of long barren years of failing to secure the Premiership. The Gunners are playing without much confidence but true to previous Wenger teams, they are bound to rise and go on a decent winning run sooner than later. I like their odds of getting the win at Brighton. The hosts are on a good run of undefeated matches and that makes Arsenal's favourable odds all the more enticing. An away win looks great value.

After Man City, it is getting crowded among the leading pursuers and I see comfortable wins for Liverpool and Tottenham. Spurs should have no trouble handling struggling Huddersfield while the Kops are currently on a rampage and should overcome visiting Newcastle and ensure a losing return for ex-Liverpool manager Benitez. Make it a double with Liverpool and Spurs.

Win: Arsenal
Double: Liverpool/Tottenham
