EPL 2017/18 - Week 38

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

Only a few matches are of significance for the last game week of the season. Here are my picks.

Crystal Palace should beat West Brom at home. Despite a strong level of form under caretaker manager Moore in the last weeks of the season, in which they beat Man Utd and Tottenham while also drawing with Liverpool, the Baggies will be playing Championship football next season. Moore has achieved miraculous results in his short tenure but the club is eventually paying the price of rotten results before his arrival. The Baggies will arrive at Selhurst Park with a blown up confidence to play a host team that has gradually been getting significant results under the care of ex-England manager Hodgson. Zaha is their main man but Hodgson has steadied and righted a ship that seemed destined to sink midway in the season. Palace should finish the season with a decisive win.

Liverpool are vying to secure the fourth and last UCL spot and they should have no problem doing so against Brighton. Watch for Salah to eye for yet more goals as he goes for the Golden Boot glory.

Arsenal have lost 7 consecutive matches on the road and I think that streak will end on Sunday. It will be Wenger's last match and no doubt that the Gunners will try to make it a winning one. It will be a winnable one as well as Huddersfield will still be in partying mode, having secured their stay in the EPL after a gained point at Stamford Bridge in mid-week. Arsenal look good value to win that one.


Thanks for tuning in for this EPL season. There's more to come over the Summer; horse racing, World Cup, definitely more ramblings coming!


Win: Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Liverpool
