EPL 2016/17 - Week 35

Bournemouth v/s Middlesbrough - Home win
Hull v/s Watford - Home win
Swansea v/s Stoke - Home win
West Ham v/s Everton - Draw
Burnley v/s Man Utd - Home win
Liverpool v/s Crystal Palace - Home win

It looks the best way for Man Utd to get a UCL spot next year is by winning the Europa League where it has currently secured a semi-final spot. Their remaining league fixtures look very challenging and their struggles will be compounded by the fact that they seem to have lost leading goal-scorer Ibrahimovic for an extended period of time, if not for the season. I see them losing points at Burnley this week-end for many reasons. The hosts have strong form at home, which is what will probably secure them from relegation. The Red Devils will feel the effects of their hard-fought over-time Europa League win and will be without their top striker as mentioned above. Mourinho will definitely ring the changes and his best XI will definitely not start the match. I see value in going with Burnley as draw-no-bet at current market prices.

I also see Hull overcoming Watford. I mentioned last week that Watford have nothing to play for and will show vulnerability in the remaining fixtures. Hull have the urgency to keep fighting to stay up and they need full points in these types of encounters. It might be worth going for the all-win with the Tigers.

Win: Hull
Draw-no-bet: Burnley
