EPL 2018/19 - Week 17

Man City v/s Everton - Home
Crystal Palace v/s Leicester - Draw
Huddersfield v/s Newcastle - Home
Tottenham v/s Burnley - Home
Watford v/s Cardiff - Home
Wolves v/s Bournemouth - Away
Fulham v/s West Ham - Draw
Brighton v/s Chelsea - Away
Southampton v/s Arsenal - Away
Liverpool v/s Man Utd - Home

Liverpool against Man Utd used to be the biggest match of the season. With the rise of Man City, this is no longer the case. Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the fortunes of the 2 rivals have gone in opposite ways. Klopp has the Kops on the ascendancy and the future looks bright although they have yet to win any silverware yet. Mourinho has won trophies with the Red Devils although not the cherished Premier League or Champions League titles. Worse, his impact at the club has plateau-ed and the wave of discontent around the club seems to grow by the day. At Anfield, Mourinho will park the bus, such will be the fear of the Portuguese of losing the match. It is certain that the visitors will rely on the odd counter-attack to squeeze something out of the match. With Salah in grand form, it will be hard to keep him out of the score sheet and if last year's match is anything to go by, the Liverpool forwards will have live chances to make a difference. Hard to go against the Kops here.

Man City and Tottenham are banker winners to keep apace at the top.

Accumulator: Liverpool/Man City/Tottenham
