We’ve previewed all 10 Premier League Game Week 24 fixtures and provided our best betting plays below!
With just two wins in their last nine league fixtures, the Reds are in full-blown crisis mode.
Klopp has exhausted almost every excuse for his sides poor showings of late and may finally have to concede that they’re just not that great…
Meanwhile, Leicester have been inconsistent at best over their past five fixtures (2W,2D,1L), but will be boosted by the return of Jamie Vardy, who has recovered from a hernia.
The defending champs have their back up against the wall here, I’m expecting Vardy and co to give ’em a good ol’ banging!
The league’s worse offensive unit in Burnley are set to take on the 2nd worst defensive unit in Crystal Palace, in what promises to be a fixture to miss.
The Clarets are winless across their last four outings (3L,1D), only managing to trouble to scorekeeper once across that trip.
Meanwhile, the Eagles have won two from their last three fixtures, and haven’t been kept scoreless at home since GW14.
Burnley look like they need a map to find their way to the goal this season, as such I’ll be backing the home team to take this one in a low scoring affair.
Man City fly into this contest searching for their 16th win on the trot across all competitions, 10 of which have been accompanied with a clean sheet!
Alternatively, the Spurs have looked dreadful of late, losing four from their last five outings and sliding down to eighth on the league table.
Tottenham hold an impressive record over City across recent meetings, claiming back-to-back 2-0 victories over Pep’s side in the PL.
City are a different beast now and should be able to clinch their 16th straight win at the expense of an underdone Spurs unit.
Villa’s league form has been anything short of predictable of late, Dean Smith’s side have alternated between wins and losses across their past six fixtures.
Unlike Brighton, who are undefeated in their last five PL appearances, conceding just once across the trip and claiming massive victories against Tottenham and Liverpool!
The Seagulls took home all three points in this reverse fixture and I’m backing them to get the job done at home.
Following a horror run of fixtures, it comes as a huge surprise that the Saints have been priced as narrow favourites in their clash against the Wolves.
Southampton have not only lost their last five league fixtures, but have been utterly embarrassed in front of their friends and family.
Wolverhampton have shown a slight uptick in form, keeping both Chelsea and Leicester scoreless while claiming a win over Arsenal across their past four league fixtures.
The Saints have haemorrhaged 18 goals across their last five outings and I doubt the bleeding will stop here against a hungry Wolf pack.
Man U hold the best Away record in the league, undefeated over 11 fixtures (8W,3D) scoring 24 goals across the trip.
Alternatively, West Brom boast the worst Home record in the league, managing just one victory from their 11 fixtures (3D,7L) at the Hawthornes, conceding a whopping 31 goals!
I’m backing Bruno to continue his red hot form in front of goals, leading United to an apprehensive victory.
Tenth plays eleventh as the Gunners look to rediscover their winning form.
Arsenal are winless across their last three league fixtures (1D,2L) and will continue to be without defensive pillars Leno and Luiz, who both saw red against the Wolves in GW22.
Meanwhile, Leeds continue to play an exciting brand of football, winning three of their last four league matches.
Patrick Bamford is the player to watch in this matchup, the White’s striker has 12 league goals for the season, eight of which have come on the road!
I’m backing Leeds away form to continue at the expense of a stretched Gunners outfit.
Fulham head to Goodison Park in search of their first win since GW10!
Ancelotti finally has a fit squad to choose from and it’s showing on the park, with the Toffees scoring 10 goals across their last three outings, which included fixtures against Man U and Tottenham.
Fulham has never won at Goodison Park (14 Games) and have no right to do so here, I’m backing Everton to win this one comfortably.
The Hammers will be pushing for a spot in the top four when they host cellar dwellers Sheffield United on Tuesday morning (AEST).
West Ham have lost just once across their past nine league outings (5W,3D) and will be out to complete the double over the Blades here.
Sheffield have been much improved since the turn of the year, claiming three wins from their seven 2021 PL fixtures (4L), though they are still a class below the majority of the league.
This West Ham squad could trouble the best of teams and are absolute overs at the current H2H price of $1.72!
Both Chelsea and Newcastle come into this fixture off the back of a league win.
Tuchel has made an immediate impact at the Bridge, with the Blues winning three games on the bounce, while conceding just once across the trip.
However, Chelsea will be without their leader in the backline, with Thiago Silver missing through injury.
The Toons have shown glimpses of brilliance this season, but are completely outgunned by the heavy artillery at Tuchel’s disposal.
Fulham head to Turf Moor in what will be a huge match in their bid for survival.
The Clarets have an outstanding home record against the Cottagers, unbeaten in their last 30 meetings (25W, 5D)!
Though Burnley will be without club captain Ben Mee, I believe they’re playing with the confidence to put the first nail in Fulham’s relegation coffin.
Everton face the draughting task on slowing down a Man City side who are searching for their 12th straight PL victory!
The Sky Blues will be without Europe’s form midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, with Phil Foden set to should the creative burden.
Man City have by far the best defence in the league at the moment and I’m backing them to get up in another tight one here.
