It’s Squeaky Bum Time!
Which teams have the pick of the English Premier League fixtures in Gameweek 35?
Middlesbrough picked up a much-needed 3 points on Wednesday, when they saw off North-East rivals Sunderland but they still remain 6 points adrift of safety with just 4 Premier League games remaining. Things are not likely to get any easier for the Teesiders either, with Manchester City, the next side set to visit the Riverside Stadium, boasting the highest goals expectancy figure of all teams involved in Gameweek 35 action.
Meanwhile, another defeat for the Black Cats could see them mathematically relegated over the weekend, with Hull City needing to pick up just a point from their fixture with Southampton, if Bournemouth collect all 3 points at the Stadium of Light.
It’s been a sorry season for David Moyes’ men and while their inability to make the most of set-piece situations has cost them dear, a failure to score a single headed goal all season is almost criminal.
Tottenham Hotspur responded to Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Southampton, by claiming all 3 points from a tricky looking trip to Selhurst Park.
If the Lillywhites are to end their long wait for that elusive title, they will need to see off North London rivals’ Arsenal at White Hart Lane this weekend and hope that Everton can do them a favour at Goodison Park in the process.
While the race for the title is pretty much a two-horse race, the same cannot be said of the quest for a top-four finish, with Liverpool right in the mix despite some indifferent form.
The Reds will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they travel to Watford for the Monday Night Football and the latest English Premier League match betting odds suggest that they will get the job done.
However, the nerves do appear to be jangling as the race for those Champions League spots intensifies, so Jürgen Klopp knows that his side cannot afford another slip up at Vicarage Road.
