We provide potentially marketable betting tips for Gameweek 30 of the Premier League featuring Arsenal vs Liverpool as the Match of the Day.
Manchester City look to be running away with the Premier League title having opened up a fourteen-point lead over Manchester United. However, a tricky assignment awaits this weekend when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on a high-flying Leicester City.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run under Thomas Tuchel when they lock horns with a struggling West Bromwich Albion side at Stamford Bridge. Manchester United will be pushing to strengthen their grip on second place when they lock horns with Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
Tottenham will travel to St. James’ Park as they hope for a late top-four push while Everton take on Crystal Palace at home. The biggest game, though, will go down on Saturday evening when Arsenal will be hosting Liverpool at the Emirates aiming to revive their hopes of a top-six finish while heaping more misery on the reigning champions.
Elsewhere, Southampton play hosts to Burnley while Wolves and West Ham square off at the Molineux in an intriguing match-up on Monday night.
Chelsea vs West Brom
Chelsea are yet to taste a defeat under the management of Thomas Tuchel, going 14 games unbeaten in all competitions. West Bromwich Albion, meanwhile, are in deep trouble and look primed for relegation. Going up against one of the best defensive units in the league of late, the Baggies are bound to struggle.
At the same time, given their own woeful defensive record, West Brom could be put to the sword by a Chelsea attack that is no short of quality.

Leicester vs Manchester City
Manchester City have been near-unstoppable as their hurtle at top speed towards reclaiming their Premier League crown. Leicester City, however, will be no pushovers, having already beaten the league leaders once this term and have been in tremendous form of late, while they will also be boosted by the return of James Maddison.
However, the Foxes have a poor record at home and given Manchester City’s ruthless, unforgiving nature under Pep Guardiola, expect them to take another step towards the title in what promises to be an exciting match-up at the King Power.

Arsenal vs Liverpool
It has been a disappointing campaign for both Arsenal and Liverpool, albeit for different reasons. For all the progress that the Gunners seem to have made under Mikel Arteta, they still are not convincing enough. Liverpool, on the other hand, have gone from title-winners to battling for UCL qualifying spots, a fight in which they could very well fall short.
Both teams have their deficiencies going forward as well as defensively, making for an evenly-contested battle at the Emirates – one that could end in a scored draw, an outcome that wouldn’t be of benefit for either team.

Newcastle vs Tottenham
Newcastle have been dragged into the relegation dogfight after a run of six without a win, leaving them just two points above the drop zone. On the other hand, Tottenham, after a disastrous week in which they lost to Arsenal and crashed out of the Europa League bounced back strongly with an important win over Aston Villa.
With Harry Kane firing on all cylinders and Son Heung-min back from injury, a win for Jose Mourinho & co. looks very much on the cards, helping them stay relevant in the race for a top-four finish.

Manchester United vs Brighton
Manchester United head into the game in the hope of putting the disappointment of their FA Cup exit behind whereas Brighton & Hove Albion will be pushing to further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.
United could go in without a recognised centre-forward with the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood all recovering from injuries, although the latter two could be available for selection. That, coupled with the return of Paul Pogba and his combination play with Bruno Fernandes could spell trouble for the Seagulls on Sunday.

Best of the Rest
Everton should be able to get the better of Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive while Leeds United should have enough quality to push Sheffield United further towards relegation back to the second division.
Southampton, buoyed by their FA Cup semi-final qualification, should be the favourites to bag a victory over Burnley while Aston Villa’s recent winless streak could extend to five games against a resolute Fulham side.
