With the preliminary midweek games out of the way, English football returns to its rightful place as the highlight of a football-filled weekend.
Join us as we take a closer look at some options for EPL betting in Week 30 and examine some of the headline fixtures taking place in the next few days.
Currently seven points off the top four, Tottenham’s 2019-20 campaign had seemingly faltered under the weight of recurring defensive errors and hard-hitting injuries. With captain and talisman Harry Kane returning to fitness from injury, Spurs are now much better placed to finish the season competitively. Jose Mourinho will look to stoke the fire within his players in an effort to reignite their fight for a Champions League place and close the gap on their opponents in the table.
While Manchester United fans can only glance enviously at their fiercest rivals at the top of the table – both City and Liverpool are beyond reach, Champions League qualification is still very much within their grasp. With a European ban looming for Manchester City – appeal pending obviously, fifth place could well secure a spot in Europe’s top competition. While Sheffield United and Wolves separate the Red Devils and Spurs, the North London side are perhaps their biggest challengers for the position. A win, therefore, is vital.
With his side mired in mid-table, Carlo Ancelotti will hope that his players were able to use the mid-season hiatus as a chance to study that tactical system he’s been trying to implement since taking the reigns in December. The Toffees return to football with an immensely challenging home derby against runaway league-leaders Liverpool this Sunday. Will Everton have the firepower to delay the inevitable? Or will they be dispatched as they so often have in recent years by their rivals?
There’s still the potential for this to be a truly historic season for Liverpool. Klopp’s men resume the season way out-front in the league with an astounding 82 points. Having dropped points only twice in 29 games, the Reds will be pumped to return back to their winning ways come this Sunday. As Liverpool cross to Goodison Park, Jordan Henderson and co will be focused on securing three of the final six points necessary to become champions.
Chaos, disappointment and questionable tactics have left a ragged Watford team fighting just above relegation places. On the plus side, an extraordinary 3-0 hammering of a then-unbeaten Liverpool side in Watford’s last home game showed the naysayers that the Hornets have the potential to push themselves out of the danger zone. With their first match back against a strong third-place Leicester City team, Watford will need to hit the ground running to fulfil their ambition of securing another season in the Premier League.
A full 103 days after their last competitive game, Leicester City will return to the pitch in an away fixture at Watford this Saturday. With the aim of their season – clinching a Champions League spot – within touching distance, Brendan Rodgers will have his Foxes hungry for points to realise their European dream. There’s also the ever so small possibility that they could challenge Manchester City for second place, should Pep’s men turn their focus to other competitions where they still stand a chance of picking up silverware.
