Southampton V Arsenal

Two early games going ahead of schedule for Week 37 – so we will finally see who takes an early lead this week:

Everton V Watford
West Brom V Chelsea

But first, last weeks results….

JCE Wins with ME coming Joint First

It was an interesting week as LJ went into the final game with a lead on the back of his knowledge that the Scousers can’t score on the Saints.  Rather than being conservative and picking a Chelsea 3-0 victory,more or less assuring him victory, he went with 2-0 and let JCE and ME hop over him into First place and tied for first respectively.

JE also noted that Liverpool never scored on the Saints but then picked 1-0? Inexplicable. That’s almost as daft as letting Pogba go on a freebie and then paying record fees to get him… though there are allegedly a lot of questions being asked.  But  James Milner, you owe JE 4 points and Liverpool a more comfortable Champions League qualification.

 

Southampton V Arsenal

A must win for Arsenal to have a chance at Champions League will have them running with a little more energy than we’re used to.  I don’t expect Southampton to really care that much about anything other than showcasing their talent for the off-season sell-off.  Arsenal to win and put some pressure on the ‘pool and make James Milner feel worse about his penalty miss.  Prediction 1-2 (though I think it will be 1-3)

Everton V Watford

I picked the Hornets to lose their last five games – Liverpool, Everton, Citeh, Chelski and Leicester (doing a late season bounce).  Everton have been pitiful away from home but this is, unfortunately for the Hornets, at Goodison Park.  Watford have been terrible home and away so this game looks like a sure fire demolition of Watford.  This doesn’t fill me with joy because while Watford have been called safe.. 2 wins for Swansea, 2 wins for Hull and 1 win for Palace and a goal difference swing of 15 things could be a disastrous drop down a division.  I know 15 sounds like a lot but a 4-0 at Everton, a 4-0 at City and all of a sudden we’re in trouble.    Prediction: 3-1

West Brom V Chelsea

Chelsea have won the league but it’s been all too easy so I expect West Brom to pitch a tent in their own box and camp out for 96 minutes and absorb massive amounts of pressure.. sneaking out every now and then to catch Chelski getting lackadaisical.  This is a sneaky draw and allows Chelsea fans to string Spuds along with a little hope for one more game.  Prediction 1-1
