Underdogs Result: We got one right out of five.
Stoke City FC vs Arsenal FC
Stoke are a formidable side but have withered in the last few games of the season, which finds Mark Hughes and his men languishing at 13th on the Premier League table. Winless in the last three, the team would be looking to end the season on a high and place as high as they can.
Arsenal have seen their fortunes reversed since Wenger’s decision to go with a back three. The Gunners are now back in with a shout to retain their top-four status, which has been ever present for them in the recent years. The game is expected to be an open affair especially with Arsenal’s back three and Stoke’s attacking ability.
1. Arsenal FC to win @ 1.75
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.57
3. Olivier Giroud to score anytime @ 2.20
1. First Goalscorer Alexis Sanchez @ 4.75
West Ham United FC vs Liverpool FC
Liverpool are third on the table but are still in with a real possibility of missing out on top four if they do not manage to upstage the Hammers at the Olympic arena. The Reds have struggled in the recent past against West Ham United but the will have to overcome Bilic and his men.
It has been a disappointing season for West Ham United after the highs of last season but they can still get themselves a top half finish if they go on a small run in the games that are left.
The Hammers come into the game on the back of a shock win over Spurs and could really test the Reds. The defences of both sides mean that the viewers could be in for an enticing game on Saturday.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.80
2. Coutinho to score anytime @ 2.75
1. West Ham United Draw No Bet @ 3.75
Tottenham Hotspur FC vs Manchester United FC
Jose Mourinho is likely to rest a lot of the players that started on Thursday and the league is now just a nuisance for the Portuguese boss at this point of time, with their focus solely on the Europa League final.
Mourinho, though, is still likely to name a starting eleven with a view to frustrating Spurs akin to what he attempted against Arsenal and we could either see a very open game or a very dull one, depending on how the Portuguese wants to approach the game.
1. Tottenham to win @ 1.72
2. Both Teams to Score in 1st Half – YES @ 5.00
3. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.00
1. Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.75
1. Southampton to beat Middlesbrough @ 2.00
2. Crystal Palace vs Hull – Full Time Result – Draw or Hull City @ 1.75
3. Swansea to beat Sunderland @ 1.95
4. Leicester City Asian Handicap +2.0 vs Manchester City @ 1.930
1. Leicester City Draw No Bet @ 11.00
