It’s the penultimate weekend (Matchweek 37) in the Premier League, and here is the latest Premier League Match Predictions from The Big Kick Off

Yes, once the furore of the FA Cup Final is done and dusted, the Premier League takes centre stage again, with a further round of fixtures starting on Sunday.

Man City and Liverpool both won midweek, so there was no change at the top of the table. But in the race for a Top 4 Finish, Spurs beat Arsenal 3-0, and it’s now game on for the last Champions League spot.

In the latest Premier League Top 4 Finish betting, the bookmakers have it neck-and-neck, with both teams at 5/6. Highlighting just how close it has now become between the Gunners and Spurs. 

Down the bottom of the table, will Everon rue not beating already relegated Watford on Wednesday? The Toffees had enough of the game to have won it, but couldn’t deliver the knock-out blow that surely would have seen them safe for another season.

Both Everton and Leeds have what look like winnable games this Sunday, but that doesn’t mean they will win. As for Burnley, I really can’t see them getting anything at Spurs. 

And it’s at Spurs where we start this weekend’s Premier League match predictions.

Spurs v Burnley – Sunday 12 noon 

Spurs will be hoping for a similar outcome to the previous last two season’s results when they take on struggling Burnley at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the day’s opening match.

Wins of 4-0 and 5-0 in the two most recent seasons have come at a canter, and that is just what Antonio Conte’s team will be looking for this time around.

Burnley suffered a setback last weekend when they lost 3-1 at home to Aston Villa. That defeat ended their three match winning streak.

I can only see another defeat here.

  • Verdict – SPURS WIN 

Aston Villa v Crystal Palace – Sunday 2pm

Not much to play for here. Both teams are safe and all that’s up for grabs is midtable spots.

Villa had a go against Liverpool on Tuesday night, and if they can repeat that sort of performance against Palace, I can see them getting the 3 points. 

Palace have won their last two, and last weekend’s win over Watford should have been by a bigger margin than it was. 

Zaha is in great form for Palace, but I’m going for home advantage to trump that.

  • Verdict – ASTON VILLA WIN 

Leeds v Brighton – Sunday 2pm

I wonder how Jesse Marsch’s team will recover from their last three matches. 

Although they put up a fight against Arsenal, they had lost the game inside the first 30 minutes. 

If they can produce their second half performance from the Arsenal match, they could give themselves a chance. 

Premier League Predictions

The Seagulls are on a two match winning run though. 

And more worrying for Leeds should be the fact that Graham Potter’s side has now discovered the art of scoring goals – seven in their last two games.

In previous good runs for Brighton, they weren’t scoring goals at that rate.

I’m going with form here, so there’s only one viable opinion for me. 

  • Verdict – BRIGHTON WIN 

Watford v Leicester – Sunday 2pm

The Hornets stopped the rot at Vicarage Road with a 0-0 draw on Wednesday. 

The point may ensure they avoid finishing bottom of the table, but it wouldn’t have entertained many at Vicarage Road.

Leicester know better than anybody how a strong finish to a season can influence the next one. 

Anybody remember what happened the season after they finished the 2014/15 season strongly? A point that won’t be lost on Brendan Rodgers. 

With no Europe to distract them, and Maddison and Vardy both back in tandem, I’m going for the Foxes.

  • Verdict – LEICESTER WIN 

West Ham v Man City – Sunday 2pm

I don’t believe the Hammers will be the pushovers City have encountered in their last three Premier League fixtures. 

And Pep’s team really do have serious defensive problems. Both Aymeric Laporte and Fernandinho are doubts after Wednesday’s win over Wolves.

That’s on top of already being without John Stones, Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias. 

I’m still backing City’s firepower to get the job done though. How can I not?

  • Verdict – MAN CITY WIN 

Wolves v Norwich – Sunday 2pm

These two sides have been in extremely poor form lately. Wolves have lost four of their last five, while Norwich have lost their last five.

There’s nothing really for either side to play for. It’s highly unlikely Wolves can gatecrash the top 7, even though it’s still mathematically possible. 

As for Norwich, they could climb off the bottom of the table with a win.

The truth is though, the Canaries look like they’ve thrown in the towel for this season.

As bad as both teams have been. I can only go for a Wolves win with my prediction. And that’s not with much confidence. 

  • Verdict – WOLVES WIN 

Everton v Brentford – Sunday 4.30pm

The Toffees have picked up 7 points from their last three matches. Even though it won’t render them mathematically safe, another 3 points will probably be enough to see them in the Premier League next season.

Opponents Brentford, have been on an outstanding run of late. They’ve picked up 13 points from their last 6 matches, and it’s this run that has secured another season of Premier League football

Matchweek 37 Premier League Match Predictions

Everton fans may feel they owe Brentford a beating after their abysmal 1-0 loss to the Bees last November. Just remember though, that was the result that got Rafa Benitez the boot.

Anyway, I do feel this isn’t a home banker. There is the good form of Everton at Goodison, along with a vocal crowd, up against a confident and in-form Brentford side, with Christian Eriksen pulling the strings.

Again, without too much confidence, I am going to just side with the home team. 

  • Verdict – EVERTON WIN

Newcastle v Arsenal – Monday 8pm

They don’t get any easier to predict, do they! Are Arsenal on the verge of getting themselves to the brink of the Champions League, and hitting the self-destruct button? They quite possibly are!

At the same time, they need 6 points from two matches against mid to lower placed teams in the Premier League. Surely they can’t blow this!

See, it’s far from easy to predict a win for Arsenal. 

Sometimes I look at a match, and can’t see one outcome, and am unsure between the other two. But I can’t even say that about this match.

This looks more like one of those matches where all three outcomes are possible. In those circumstances, I tend to go for the draw. For the Arsenal fans out there, I hope I’m wrong! 

  • Verdict – DRAW
