Our Sunday Football Accumulator – Sunday 5th May

We had another near miss last week as just Arsenal let me down in my Wednesday and Thursday night tips, that is annoying as there was a huge profit on the line there and with Valencia taking an early lead, I felt that the draw, at that point, looked a very solid bet.

However the Spaniards were uncharacteristically poor defensively, as well as missing a number of chances and that allowed Arsenal to grab the initiative to take into the second leg. That was frustrating as the other games pretty much played out as I had envisaged.

This Sunday, there are three Premier League games but unfortunately, the odds on the most obvious selections in each of those games are very short. I didn’t want to finish the season with an acca of considerably less than 5/1 for you, so what I have done is drop one selection from Sunday’s Premier League and I have added two games from The Championship, the final round of games of which takes place on Sunday from 12.30pm.

Oddly, one of those games could well be a Premier League tie next season as in-form Aston Villa, who are confirmed in the playoffs, face already promoted Norwich City, who know a point will be enough to confirm them as Champions. The other game is a crucial battle for Derby County who need a win to be assured of finishing in the playoffs against another playoff side in West Brom. If the Rams fail then either Middlesbrough or Bristol City could leap above them into that sixth and final play off spot.

In the Premier League I’ve gone for Chelsea’s game with Watford and Arsenal’s match with Brighton, with the latter knowing a win in either of their last two games will put them safe. The problem Brighton fans have is that those games are away to the Gunners on Sunday and then Manchester City at home on the final day.

Here’s my tips for Sunday’s games.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 5th May

Aston Villa v Norwich City – Draw

Norwich City are already confirmed as promoted and a point or better here would ensure they finish ahead of Sheffield United at the top of the table. However, they face an Aston Villa side who have bounced back from a disappointing start to the season and put together an outstanding run of results to easily push themselves into the playoff places. That has come on the back of 12 games unbeaten and it means that the Villains head into the playoffs as the in-form team from the quartet. Norwich though have a happy knack of scoring against any team and they too are on a long unbeaten run of 13 games. Villa away though is about the toughest test the Canaries can face but despite that, I think both teams will finish the season positively as I think this one has every likelihood of turning out to be a score draw.

Derby County v West Brom – Home Win

A few weeks back, after a 2-0 loss to Blackburn, Derby’s playoffs hopes looked in serious danger. However since then, Frank Lampard’s team have gone unbeaten in five to jump back into the playoff places with just one game of the season to go, one point ahead of Middlesbrough and two ahead of Bristol City. The Rams know that a win against West Brom, who are already confirmed as in the playoffs, will put them in with a chance of promotion at Wembley in late May. Derby certainly have some positives coming into the game, they beat the Baggies 4-1 at the Hawthorns back in October and they will have vociferous home support. This will be a lot closer though but I am backing the home side to clinch a narrow win and the final playoff spot.

Chelsea v Watford – Home Win

Chelsea earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Watford when the teams met in the league back in December, Eden Hazard the main man as he netted both their goals in that win at Vicarage Road. Watford though are always a very tough side to beat and with an FA Cup Final to play, places are up for grabs in the Wembley showpiece in a couple of weeks and the Hornets could still earn a Europa League place if they finish 7th, depending on how results in other games and the Europa League, go. Chelsea need to win to try and secure a top four finish and potential Champions League qualification and they have been solid at home, so on the back of a positive result in Germany against Frankfurt, I am backing them to pick up the win here.

Arsenal v Brighton – Home Win

Brighton need one win from their last two games to be assured of safety but Arsenal away and then Man City at home are arguably two of the toughest fixtures of the season for Chris Hughton’s team so they may be reliant on Cardiff not picking up maximum points from their last two games. Arsenal should be in confident mood following a fine win over Valencia in the Europa League semifinal first leg on Thursday night and despite losing at home to Crystal Palace last time out at the Emirates, I think the Gunners have more than enough to claim the win here.
