EPL 2017/18 - Week 24

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

Watford were oh-so-lucky to salvage a point last week-end with the helping hand of midfielder Doucoure. I think there are signs that the Hornets are losing the kind of form that made them competitive since the start of the season. I expect them to have a torrid time in Leicester as Claude Puel's team are seriously in good form and rock solid at home. Mahrez is playing out of his skin and Vardy is always lurking for goalscoring opportunities. Home win for me.

I also see home wins for West Ham and Man City. The Hammers should prove too much for the visiting Cherries, particularly with Arnatauvic playing with great confidence since the arrival of Moyes. In my opinion, Bournemouth will be hard at work to keep their Premier League spot until the end of the season and West Ham will gun for the full points here. Man City should easily dispatch Newcastle where off-field distractions are taking precedence over football matters.

Finally, I see away wins for Spurs and Liverpool as they fight for a top 4 spot. It is no secret that Tottenham are more comfortable on the road and they have seen worse than travelling to Southampton. Liverpool should also be in a position to maintain their good momentum by dispatching sorry Swansea.

Win: Leicester, West Ham, Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool
