Manchester City stand two games away from their 4th Premier League title in 5 years, as they need 4 points from their remaining two games to hold off the challenge of Liverpool. With the reds taking on Chelsea in the FA Cup Final this weekend, City can make gains, as can Tottenham and Arsenal in the battle for a top 4 finish. At the bottom meanwhile, it remains a real scrap between Everton, Burnley, and Leeds United, with only one of them dropping down into the Championship next term.
Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the EPL:
Premier League Week 37 Preview
Tottenham vs Burnley – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham will be looking to put pressure on Arsenal above them as they take on Burnley. Spurs and Arsenal are embroiled in a battle to finish in the remaining Champions League spot next season and the North London rivalry is showing no signs of slowing. Burnley meanwhile, have their own survival bid to worry about but they come into this one outside of the drop zone on goal difference, something they will want to build on here. Spurs should have too much about them at home here though.
Betting tip: Tottenham to win the match ($1.36) Bet @ Picklebet
Tottenham to win 2-0
Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace – Villa Park
Aston Villa ($2.1)
Crystal Palace ($3.75)
Two sides that are already looking to build towards next season face off as Aston Villa host Crystal Palace. Neither team has been able to enjoy a sustained run of form this season, but they will be buoyed by not being anywhere near the relegation picture. Villa put up a good fight but were ultimately undone by Liverpool last time out, whilst Palace continue to pluck away under Patrick Vieira. This should be an excellent game, with goals on the cards and potentially a draw.

Leeds United vs Brighton – Elland Road
Leeds United ($2.63)
It is now or never for Leeds, who currently find themselves in the relegation zone, ahead of hosting Brighton. The whites have slowly dwindled at the back end of the campaign and are now in the bottom three, with just two games to play. Brighton meanwhile come into this one off the back of a big win over Manchester United and they should relish their role as party poopers here. This could be an exciting game, with the draw perhaps the most plausible outcome.

Watford vs Leicester City – Vicarage Road
Leicester City ($2.2)
Already relegated Watford will be hoping to salvage some pride as they take on Leicester City. The Hornets have announced that former Forest Green Rovers manager Rob Edwards will be leading them next season and they will be out to start the rebuild from here. Leicester City meanwhile have endured a tough campaign by their own high standards and Brendan Rodgers will want to see his team kick on again next season. Leicester should have too much quality where it matters for Watford here.

Leicester City to win 2-0
Wolves vs Norwich City – Molineux
Norwich City ($8)
Wolves will be looking to end the season on a high, as they welcome already relegated Norwich City. The hosts were thumped by Manchester City last time out but will be all too aware that this is a change in quality of opponent and their fans will want a performance here. Norwich City meanwhile are preparing for life in the Championship already and they look to be playing for pride only in the West Midlands here. Wolves are a good side, and they should win well at home.
Betting tip: Wolves to win the match ($1.48) Bet @ Picklebet
Wolves to win 3-0
West Ham United vs Manchester City – London Olympic Stadium
West Ham United ($8.5)
Manchester City ($1.4)
Manchester City stand 2 games away from back-to-back Premier League titles and they know they will need to be at their best here against West Ham. The hosts are still in the mix for a Europa League place next season, and they will revel in their role as party poopers. City meanwhile now only have the Premier League to concentrate on and with a three point gap to Liverpool in second, their fate is now very much within their own hands. City have a habit of just getting the job done and whilst this will be tough, they could sneak all three points.

Manchester City to win 2-1
Everton vs Brentford – Goodison Park
Following a recent resurgence, Everton are now out of the bottom three and they will be looking to press home that advantage as they take on Brentford. The Toffees won well over Chelsea and Leicester to climb out of the drop zone, but Frank Lampard’s men know the job is not yet done. Brentford meanwhile are a side that have impressed hugely in their first Premier League season, and they have plenty of opportunities to build on that next term. This should be a tight game but with Goodison Park rocking, Everton should win this one.
Betting tip: Everton to win the match ($2) Bet @ Picklebet
Everton to win 2-1
Newcastle United vs Arsenal – St James’s Park
Newcastle United ($4.6)
Arsenal will be looking to step up their Champions League football bid, as they travel to Newcastle United. Toon have secured their Premier League status already this term and look to be playing for Eddie Howe’s acclaim, as the summer rebuild looms. Arsenal meanwhile, are a side that have improved massively as the season as developed and a top 4 finish is now within their grasp. This should be a good game and with Arsenal needing the win, they should well get it.
