Premier League Accumulator Tips: Sun 21st May

It’s the final week of the Premier League season and not a bad time to reflect on what has been a brilliant season for me with both the acca tips outlined here, plus all the tips that have come in that I send out via email each week.  Last weekend didn’t turn out as I’d hoped, but we’ve got one final hurrah on Sunday to try and finish the season with a bang.

In truth, I am not too worried as I have recorded a huge profit on the season all told and I hope you have too. That said, what better and nicer way to finish the season than by giving the bookies another hammering and sorting out some spending cash for the summer holidays too.

Final day fixtures are always funny ones to tip, with many teams having little or nothing to play for and some teams likely to give fringe players a chance. That can make them tricky to predict, but regardless of that, here’s my tips for the games this Sunday that will form part of my final acca bet of the season.

Bet Analysis: Sun 21st May

Arsenal to defeat Everton – So Everton fans, do you want your team to take a point or win this game knowing that the team that directly benefits will be Liverpool and that it makes no difference to where Everton finish in the table? Everton could see the last of Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley in this game as both have been linked with moves away but it is hard to see where Everton’s motivation will come from here, other than professional pride. For Arsene Wenger’s men, it is simple – they must win the game to give themselves a realistic chance of earning a Champions League spot and I think that is precisely what will happen.

Leicester to beat Bournemouth – Leicester’s uncharacteristic 6-1 thumping in midweek at home to Spurs will not be the way that the Foxes want to round off the season and Craig Shakespeare knows that any more results and performances like that could well see his chances of landing the job at the end of the season on a permanent basis diminish. They face a Bournemouth side seeking to enhance their earnings from the Premier League by finishing as highly as possible up the table. A win for Leicester could see them finish 9th, while Bournemouth could finish 8th if they win and other results go their way. However, I think Leicester will want to bounce back from that humiliation in midweek and they’ll be up to put that result right here.

Liverpool to beat Middlesbrough – Liverpool’s recent home form isn’t great reading for Reds fans, two draws and a defeat in their last three is a poor return from games with Palace, Southampton and Bournemouth. That must worry Liverpool fans who know only a victory will guarantee them a Champions League spot next season. Middlesbrough have been decent defensively away from home but only scored 10 goals on their travels this season, winning just once. They’ve also been on a miserable run of form just late which has not helped their confidence. If Liverpool score early, this could be a thumping win for the Reds, but the longer it stays 0-0, the more edgy the home side and crowd will get. However I think Liverpool will do enough to get the win, however it could be 1-0 thanks to a debatable last minute penalty, or it could be 6-0 at half-time. It depends which Liverpool turn up.

Man Utd and Crystal Palace to draw – Jose Mourinho has confirmed that at least five or six young Manchester United stars will start this game alongside a smattering of players who will either not start, or are suspended from the Europa League final (such as Eric Bailly). Crystal Palace secured their Premier League future last weekend and they will now relax knowing that their status in the top flight is safe. I think this will likely be an archetypical ‘end of season’ fixture and United’s much weakened side means Palace should stand a chance of a win here, but having said that, they don’t need to push things too much and in truth I think the most likely outcome here is that both sides will play out a draw.

Watford to lose to Man City – Watford have already confirmed manager Walter Mazzari will leave the club at the end of the season and the Hornets come into this game on the back of a five-game losing streak against a Man City side with the second best away record in the Premier League and who still need a point to be absolutely sure of Champions League qualification. Watford have played poorly for several weeks now and it is hard to see how they can raise their game against one of the best counter attacking sides in the league. In truth, I don’t think Watford stand much of a chance here at all and I am backing Manchester City to secure their Champions League spot by recording a comprehensive win here.
