EPL 2015/16 - Week 28

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

Crystal Palace did not justify the confidence placed upon them last week but I still believe that it is a case of "when" and not "if", they will finally start a winning run. They travel to fellow strugglers Sunderland for a good opportunity to bag in 3 important points. Although it's relatively early to have a firm judgement, I have a feeling that Sunderland are looking more likely to go down than stay up. I think they will desperately missing players of the caliber of Adam Johnson during the relegation scrap. Bolasie should be making his comeback felt sooner than later for the Eagles and they could be the value away win of the midweek matches.

If there is a team that I strongly believe will be relegated, it has to be Villa. They haven't improved under manager Garde and they are not showing any signs that things will get drastically better. The visit of Everton does not look good for them as Martinez's men have good form going into this match with some resolute defensive displays in their last matches. Barkley has just been sparkling for the Toffees this season and he has been creating danger by the bucket load in many of his matches of late. Everton are good to at least get a point out of this encounter and it might be worth a shot to see them get all three.
