Week 17 of the Premier League season is less than 24 hours away and it's time to get into the long and hard (that's what she said) part of the season as we have games coming fast. As always we have three matches that will GUARANTEE you have some extra money for your gift needs this holiday season.
Chelsea F.C. vs Crystal Palace F.C. - (-170)
Crystal Palace host Chelsea which can/will get really ugly for the home side. Everything for Chelsea is ticking. Their goalie is on form, they aren’t conceding many goals, Costa is in form, and even players like Victor Moses are on the top of their game. On the other side, Palace conceded a last minute goal to lose to Manchester United. I genuinely believe Alan Pardew is one of the worst managers in Premier League HISTORY. This is going to get really ugly.
Chelsea Predicted XI:
Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard
Crystal Palace Predicted XI:
Hennessey, Kelly, Delaney, Dann, Wad, Mcarthur, Joe Ledley, Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend, Benteke
Prediction: 4-0 Chelsea
Watford F.C. vs Sunderland A.F.C.- (+190)
Watford goes to Sunderland this weekend as they are shockingly the underdogs as Sunderland are the worst team in the Premier League at home this season as they only have 7 points at the Stadium and Light and 15 goals conceded. With Watford having players all over the pitch who can score, I don’t think Sunderland will be able to stop them. Even though I think both teams will score Watford will just edge this match.
Watford Predicted XI:
Gomes, Kaboul, Prodl, Britos, Janmaat, Capoue, Behrami, Holebas, Amrabat, Deeney, Success
Sunderland Predicted XI:
Pickford, O'shea, Djilobodji, Kone, Jones, Denayer, Ndong, Van Annholt, Januzaj, Deoe, Anichebe
Prediction: 2-1 Watford
Southampton F.C. vs A.F.C. Bournemouth - (+165)
Southampton goes up against Bournemouth in one of the closest match ups of the weekend. The reason I am going with Southampton is due to their defensive strength at the back. I think with how badly Eddie Howe will want to play an open and attacking style of play that I think Southampton can get them on the counter as Bournemouth’s goalkeeper (Artur Boruc) is not very good. This will be a nail biter, but the Saints will get it done.
Southampton Predicted XI:
Forster, Cedric, Van Dijk, Fonte, Bertrand, Hojbjerg, Clasie, Daivs, Tadic, Redmond, Boufal
Bournemouth Predicted XI:
Boruc, Francis, Ake, Cook, Dnaiels, Wilshere, Arter, Smith, King, Pugh, Afobe
Prediction: 1-0 Southampton
