The last round of Premier League Fixtures brought us some pretty tight games, with every match either being a draw or settled by a single goal. Saturday was “Derby Day” with the Liverpool Derby being played at Goodison Park early doors, and City hosting the Manchester Derby closing proceedings in the evening. Over in Liverpool, Everton did well to hold on to a 0-0 result, although the games was not a classic! West Brom drew with Swansea, Brighton drew with Huddersfield and Bournemouth tied with Crystal Palace, with each team enjoying a share of the spoils. Bizarrely, for the rest of the 3pm matches, they all finished 1-2, with the away team taking all three points, including Burnley, Spurs and Newcastle.
The evening match was the highlight of the day (and the weekend to be fair). With City 2-0 to the good at half time (which could easily have been 5/6-0), the match looked like a foregone conclusion. Not sure what happened at half time, but United came out fighting and turned the game around, winning 3-2. Whilst it only postponed the Blues clinching title, the result gives the Red half of the city something to hold on to.
Sunday saw Arsenal beat Southampton 3-2 at the Emirates and Chelsea battled to a 1-1 draw with West Ham United.
Turning our attentions to this week, Saturday’s early game sees Southampton welcome Chelsea (12:30, Sky Sports), with two matches making the screen in the evening. Liverpool play Bournemouth at the familiar time of 17:30 (although this match will be shown on BT Sport), and after that game, Spurs welcome Manchester City to Wembley Stadium (19:45, Sky Sports). The 3pm games see Burnley host Leicester, Palace v Brighton, Huddersfield face Watford and Everton travel to Wales to face Swansea.
Sunday sees Newcastle United welcome Arsenal (13:30, Sky Sports), and Manchester United face West Bromwich Albion (16:00, Sky Sports). Monday Night Football is back with the Hammers hosting Stoke City (20:00, Sky Sports).
If you fancy a flutter, our top ACCA picks for this weekend are Liverpool (1.22), Manchester United (1.20) and West Ham (2.00), which can be combined with Ladbrokes to return 2.93.
That rounds up the Premier League Fixtures for this weekend. Whoever your team is, whichever teams you back on your slip, we wish you luck!
