Premier League & Carabao Cup Final Acca – 24th & 25th April

No luck last weekend with what was a bit of a disappointing week for tips, albeit IEFL Cup think a few shock results didn’t help matters. However, I’ve been looking forward to this weekend as I think this looks like being a slightly easier set of games to predict and it is also the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday.

Manchester City face Spurs in that game at Wembley and I have included this in my set of tips for the weekend. I’ve also included the big game at Elland Road where Marcelo Bielsa’s in-form Leeds United, unbeaten in their last five games including matches against Manchester City and Liverpool, face their fierce rivals Manchester United.

It’s certainly been one of the most dramatic and strangest weeks in the history of football that I can remember with all this European Super League nonsense coming to a head and then dying a death.  It is going to be interesting to see how the fallout from all that boardroom greed filters down to affect performances on the pitch. This weekend may give us a good indication of that, especially for those ‘Big Six’ clubs who elected to leave.

As such, the games involving Liverpool (who face Newcastle at Anfield,  Chelsea (who take on West Ham away) and Manchester United will be of particular interest this weekend as they all face teams who would feel very aggrieved at their owner’s behaviour in the past few months.

Anyway, here’s my tips for this weekend’s action in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup Final.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 24th April

Liverpool v Newcastle United – Home Win

Liverpool lie seventh in the EPL at the moment, but a win here could move them as high as fourth in the table, albeit temporarily. The Reds are at the stage now where they need to win every game in order to try and secure a Champions League spot for next season and while their home form isn’t great a win over Aston Villa followed by a clean sheet against Real Madrid, even in defeat, was at least a couple of positive results. Newcastle have the same form as Liverpool over the last five and have won their last two so won’t be pushovers here and I think they’ll make it very tricky for Liverpool but I just feel the home side will do enough to scrape a vital win.

West Ham United v Chelsea – Away Win

Fifth takes on fourth in the Premier League table here with many teams around them in the table probably hoping that this game will end in a draw. I must admit, I did consider the draw as an option here, given the good form shown by West Ham in recent times, but something does worry me about the Hammers when they take on any of the big six. They don’t have a great record against these teams really and with Chelsea needing a win after a disappointing 0-0 draw with Brighton in midweek, I just felt the extra counter attacking threat Chelsea have makes them the slight favourites here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 25th April

Leeds United v Manchester United – Away Win

The last time these two sides met at Old Trafford, the home side went 2-0 in front inside the first three minutes and ended up running out 6-2 winners in a game that saw 43 shots and 18 of those on target. In truth, I think this game at Elland Road, and I am loathe to say this as they rarely happen, could well be a similar kind of story. Leeds only know how to play the one way, United are perfectly set up to counter Leeds when they do come forward and for me, that sets up a fantastic encounter that should see plenty of goals, but one that I feel Manchester United, by virtue of their quality on the counter attack, should win relatively comfortably.

Manchester City v Tottenham – Manchester City Win

A quick look at the historic meetings in the cup between these two teams doesn’t make great reading for City fans. Spurs have won all three League Cup meetings between the two, and also won the 1981 FA Cup Final against City. However, having had manager Jose Mourinho dismissed in the run up to the final, Ryan Mason will take charge for his second game in a Wembley final, tasked with ending Spurs barren run without trophies, which stretches back to 2008. I don’t think he will though as I feel City are by far the better option here, especially with Harry Kane a doubt for the Londoners. City have won this trophy three years in a row. I expect them to make it four on Sunday.
