The Fight for ‘Top Four’ places continues this weekend;

Premier League action resumes this weekend. Most of the action will be down at the bottom as the bottom half of the table continues to fight for survival. While the title race is in reality over with Manchester City marching to pick up their third title since 2012, it’s still all to fight for however for the remaining three Champions League places among Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs, and Chelsea. As the heat is now getting on to the players, the same can be said of bettors at online casinos as they try to predict which teams are likely to finish in the top four and which one is going to miss out.

With all four teams still in the race for the Champions League playing this weekend, let’s look at how they are likely to fare.

Manchester United (vs Swansea City)

Manchester United are at home to a rejuvenated Swansea side that has found its mojo at just the right time. Manchester United’s last two results, one in the Champions League against Sevilla and the other in the FA Cup against Brighton created divisions between the players, the manager, and the fans. After defending his team’s performance in the loss against Sevilla, Jose Mourinho went on to blast his players in their next match against Brighton even though the performances were more or less the same. In Swansea, they face a side which has beaten Arsenal and Liverpool in 2018 but despite all their troubles, Manchester United are going to win.

Champion League verdict- Qualify

Liverpool (vs Crystal Palace)

Liverpool takes on a struggling Crystal Palace team in the opening game of the weekend. Liverpool has a chance of widening the gap between them and the other two clubs behind them in Spurs and Chelsea before their mouth-watering clash. Liverpool has been scoring goals for fun and even though Crystal Palace does present problems of their own, Liverpool will have too much firepower for Crystal Palace.

Champions League verdict- Qualify

Chelsea (vs Tottenham Hotspurs)

Two of the teams in the race for top four will meet each other at Stamford Bridge in a match that promises to be a blockbuster. The home team, Chelsea are four points off the final Champions League qualification place currently held by Tottenham. The four-point gap means a lot to Chelsea as a win will bring them closer to the pack while a loss will see them fall further back with a few games of the season left to play. Chelsea will be buoyed by the fact that their players especially the forwards are now looking like scoring again, Alvaro Morata scored his first goal of 2018 in the FA Cup quarter-final win against Leicester City while Olivier Giroud found the back of the net in France’s game against Columbia over the international break. Tottenham, on the other hand, will have to cope without their talisman, Harry Kane who is expected to be out for the next couple of weeks. In Heung Min Son, however, they have a man who can change the game on his own. This promises to be a thriller but a first win for Spurs at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era is unlikely. This match will end in a draw.
