EPL 2016/17 - Week 22

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

Man Utd v/s Liverpool is the biggest rivalry in England, no question. This year, the intrigue deepens with a Mourinho v/s Klopp confrontation with the two managers having improved their teams markedly this season. Momentum is with the Red Devils and it's hard to oppose them as they are playing with plenty of confidence at the moment. They are on a hot winning streak and are as ever as dangerous at Old Trafford. Liverpool will welcome back Coutinho but he is bound to be short of playing time and won't be at the best of his abilities until he gets a good run of matches. The Kops' form has dipped during his absence and won't be going to their nemesis all guns blazing. Advantage the Red Devils in this one and I can't see them losing this match. They will either win or draw, which makes a draw-no-bet on them the best value punt.

Spurs beat Chelsea comprehensively in their last match and will be confident about their chances for a title run-in. West Brom are a tough cookie to deal with as they showed in their recent visits to powerhouses such as Arsenal, Chelsea or Southampton. Although they have buckled in the end, they have kept some of these away games very close till the end. Delle Ali and his team mates are on fire at the moment and they have so many outlets of scoring that it is hard to see WBA getting out of White Hart Lane with something. Spurs should prove too much in the end for Pulis' men.

Win: Tottenham
Draw-no-bet: Man Utd
