Premier League match predictions can help plenty of fantasy and daily fantasy sports managers. There is only a couple weeks to go in the season and the Premier League is taking its final shape of 2016-17.
Two match days remain in the 2017-18 English Premier League. Chelsea are on the cusps of winning their sixth league title and a win against West Brom will hand them the trophy. Some Premier League pundits have declared the competition to be boring, but for the most part, the season has had plenty of twists and turns for some fans. Gameweek 37 is about to kickoff and our Premier League match predictions will hopefully help fantasy managers get wins this weekend.
Everton vs. Watford – Prediction 2:0
Neither Everton nor Watford have been in good form as of late. The Toffees have lost two straight while Watford have lost four of five in the Premier League. Romelu Lukaku has been in poor fantasy form lately, however, he tallied 12 points in a two goal performance earlier this season against Watford.
West Brom vs. Chelsea – Prediction 0:2
Chelsea can clinch the title Friday night against West Brom, and the way the Blues have played recently, there is no reason they won’t win. Five wins in their last six matches have Chelsea flying high. Antonio Conte’s defence has kept back-to-back clean sheets and tallying another at the Hawthorns is highly likely. Find out why Marcos Alonso is our top pick for Fantasy Premier League defenders this gameweek.
Manchester City vs. Leicester – Prediction 2:1
Leicester may have beaten Manchester City, 4-2, earlier this season; but Pep Guardiola’s team is in fine form at the minute. Undefeated in their last five Premier League matches, Manchester City are one point back of third place Liverpool. Sergio Aguero is still missing with injury, but Gabriel Jesus will be inserted in his place. Kevin De Bruyne is one of our top midfield fantasy pick this gameweek. Find out why we love De Bruyne for your FPL team.
Middlesbrough vs. Southampton – Prediction 1:1
Neither team have much to play for as Southampton travel to the Riverside Stadium. Middlesbrough have already been relegated and Southampton will finish midtable. It is a season of what could have been for both clubs, but there is always next season. Southampton have found a capable forward in the explosive Manolo Gabbiadini despite the Italian losing form recently. For Middlesbrough, it is back to the drawing board as the team head back to the Championship regardless of the result.
Bournemouth vs. Burnley – Prediction 2:1
Burnley haven’t fared too well this season away from home. The team have gained just seven points on the road, second bottom in the Premier League’s away table. Bournemouth, on the other hand, have played well all season; and the team are unbeaten in four of their last six home games. Josh King has played well in the second half of the season for the Cherries, and should continue is fine form as the Premier League term comes to an end.
Sunderland vs. Swansea – Prediction 0:2
Sunderland can play spoiler to Swansea’s Premier League survival hopes. However, history is not on Sunderland’s side. The Black Cats were thoroughly beaten earlier this term by Swansea, 3-0. The Swans’ Gylfi Sigurdsson had a field day against Sunderland the last time out. He tallied 13 points during the match and the Iceland international has the potential to do it all again in gameweek 37.
Stoke vs. Arsenal – Prediction 0:2
Arsenal are pushing for the top four, but are three points behind Manchester City currently. The Gunners have won two in a row, including a midweek fixture against Southampton. It may be too little, too late, however. Stoke are in no danger of relegation and have troubled few teams this season. Don’t expect much from the Potters.
Crystal Palace vs. Hull – Prediction 2:2
The last time these two teams met, it finished 3-3. Hull need a win to keep pace with Swansea. If results go their way, they could end up above the Swans going into the last gameweek of the Premier League season. The Tigers’ defence is the worst in the league, however. Crystal Palace are ninth in scoring and are always dangerous with Christian Benteke leading the line. The Belgian made our top 5 forwards list this week, see who joins him.
West Ham vs. Liverpool – Prediction 1:2
Liverpool needed a win last weekend, yet only got a draw against Southampton. The team are in need of a win to stay in the Champions League places. However, the last time Liverpool played West Ham, the East London side earned a point in a 2-2 draw. Roberto Firmino and Luca Leiva are struggling with injury, and Liverpool haven’t been as dangerous since losing Sadio Mane. West Ham could get another big point, but the cream may rise to the top.
Tottenham vs. Manchester United – Prediction 2-1
Tottenham may not win the Premier League, but for the second straight year they will have come very close. Manchester United have just qualified for the Europa League Final by hanging on against a midtable La Liga side in Celta Vigo who could and should have won at the death. Without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Jose Mourinho’s team do not have the firepower that Spurs do, but expect the Red Devils to pack 10 men behind the ball. Manchester United won the last time the two side met this season, but Tottenham at White Hart Lane will be a very different proposition for the Old Trafford side.
