Just as Game Week 32 of the Premier League comes to a close, Game Week 33 flourishes to life!
Liverpool have already crowned the 2019/20 Premier League Champions, now all eyes have turned to the battle for European Qualification, with United attempting to crack into the top four and go nine games undefeated against Cherries.
Elsewhere, Chelsea hope to bounce back against the Hornets, the Wolves set their sights on the Gunners and Everton look to kick the Spurs while they’re down.
We’ve Previewed all ten fixtures in Game Week 33 and provided our best betting plays along the way!
Game Week 33 gets underway with a Grade A fizzer at Carrow Road on Saturday evening (AEST).
Norwich’s season has been nothing short of a car wreck, the Canaries are currently dead last on the table, six points adrift of Bournemouth in 2nd last.
To make matters worse the Canaries are scoreless in their last four league outings, while conceding nine across the same trip.
Brighton suffered their first post covid defeat at the hands of United in GW32, but fielded their 2nd string side with one eye looking forward to this contest.
Brighton won the reverse fixture against Norwich 2-nil and should get up comfortably here once again.
The pressure is mounting on the Foxes, once considered a shoe-in for UCL Qualification, are now in danger of dropping out of all European action.
Brendan Rodger’s side has won two from their last 11 league fixtures, failing to secure a win since the resumption of play.
This have been largely due to the contribution or lack there of from their talisman Jamie Vardy, who has scored just twice since GW19.
Palace are in a slight slump themselves, having lost their last two PL fixtures following an impressive run of four straight victories.
The Eagles boast a decent record against the Foxes, winning four of their past five meetings including two emphatic victories at the King Power Stadium.
Crystal Palace look a lot more settled than Leicester at the minute and are well worth a shout at their current head to head price!
Despite getting up against the Red Devils earlier in the season, Bournemouth are sitting at a massive $19 to repeat the feat, claiming just one point in their last seven league fixtures it’s easy to see why.
The Cherries are looking a moral to be relegated this season and the club almost seems resigned to their fate.
Eddie Howes side put in a woeful showing midweek, allowing the Toons to put four goals past them in what was meant to be one of their most winnable fixtures.
United on the other-hand haven’t lost a match since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and are unbeaten across their last eight league fixtures.
Ole has a fully fit squad at his disposal and will be pushing hard for a top four finish.
United have comfortably won their last two PL contests 3-nil, with Fernandez chipping in with two goals last time out.
With Fernandes and Pogba’s partnership starting to truely blossom, I can’t see anything but total embarrassment on the cards for the Cherries.
Another side posturing for a top four finish is Wolverhampton, like United, Nuno’s men have gone eight fixtures without defeat and are searching for their fourth win on the trot.
After a rocky restart to action, the Gunners have begun to rediscover their mojo, claiming consecutive wins against the Saints and Norwich.
Wolves will be a huge step-up in class for Arteta’s men who have looked extremely vulnerable away from home this season.
The $2.25 on offer for the Wolves is just too hard to pass up here.
Watford are set to face a Chelsea side eager to atone for their shocking Game Week 32 showing against the Hammers.
The Blues’ top four position is standing on shaky ground after dropping all three points in what was thought to be an unloseable fixture.
Lampard will likely real in the changes for this match, with Tammy Abraham failing to fire up front, while the back four all had a day to forget.
Willian was one of the only shining lights in an overall dull performance, the Brazilian found the back of the net twice from dead-ball situations and will fancy himself against the Hornets.
Chelsea’s last six league games have hit the ‘Over 2.5 Goals’ mark and the past five meetings between these two sides has done the same.
I’m expecting Willian to have his fingerprints allover a high scoring victory for the Blues.
Sheffield come flying into this contest off the back of thumping the Spurs 3-1 on Friday morning (AEST).
The Blades took care of the Clarets 3-nil back in November, but Sean Dyche’s side has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Burnley have lost just once in the past ten league fixtures (5-nil Man City) and will be out to secure their third win on the trot.
This may prove too short of a turnaround for the Blades, as such I’m backing the Clarets to continue their impressive run of form.
Newcastle are looking to go six matches without defeat when they welcome the Hammers to St James Park.
The Toons ran riot against the Cherries midweek, with Allan Saint-Maximin running circles around Bournemouth’s defence picking up three assists.
West Ham also put in a good performance against the Blues, claiming all three points in a five goal thriller.
Although, one good game doesn’t make a team and David Moyes’ haven’t managed to string together back-to-back wins since Game Weeks 3 and 4.
Newcastle are slight overs at their current H2H price and I’m always happy to back against the Hammers.
Aston Villa have drawn the short straw in GW33 draw, having to face an enraged Reds side following their 4-nil belting to the Citizens.
Villa will be thinking damage limitation heading into this fixture, Dean Smith’s side are just inside the relegation zone, a point behind Watford and one spot above the Cherries on goal differential alone (+1).
I can see Villa flooding back here and playing for a draw, but keeping the likes of Mane and Salah quiet in consecutive fixtures is nigh on impossible.
Moving on from one mismatch to another, as Southampton suit up to face the high flying Sky Blues.
The Saints have won two of their last three PL fixtures, be it against bottom four opponents.
Danny Ings has been a stand out performer for the Saints, netting 18 times to put himself well in the hunt for a maiden golden boot award.
Man City bounced back from their 2-1 defeat against the Blues last week to register a 4-nil thumping of the newly crowned champions Liverpool.
The Citizens have scored 13 times in their four matches since the season resumed, conceding just twice.
City have won their last five league matches against the Saints at a canter and I’m expecting them to shoot out of the blocks once again.
Game Week 33 wraps up on Tuesday morning as Everton look to compile Jose’s misery with a victory over the Spurs.
Since the resumption of play, the Toffees have kept the Reds to a scoreless draw, knockoff Norwich to nil, and scrapped past Leicester City 2-1.
While, Tottenham somehow escape with a point against United, snuck past the Hammers and got sliced up against the Blades!
Jose clearly isn’t happy with his personal and is itching for the Summer transfer period to commence.
Whereas, Ancelotti has his back four operating in near perfect harmony.
Everton have clearly been the better of the two sides since the season restart should fancy picking up all three points on offer here.
