Saturday’s Footie Acca – Sat 5th May

Close Call Sundays are becoming a bit of a theme for me! Last week I told you that I missed out by one goal last weekend when Burnley didn’t quite get the job done and last Sunday, three teams obliged with the results I’d predicted and all I needed was Napoli to beat Fiorentina to claim the win.

Only then Napoli get a key defender sent off after five minutes, lose the game and with it their hopes of a Serie A title ahead of Juventus (who were dramatic late winners against Inter Milan the day before in another action-packed clash).

So all in all, it’s been a pretty frustrating time of it with a fair few accas missing out by just one errant result, albeit with some nice winners along the way. Still, looking back on the season overall, we’ve hit some good wins and some sizeable ones too and as long as we post a profit, then all is good.

However, I’m still not done with this season yet and with two match days of the season left, I am hopeful that I will get a bit of luck go my way and turn one of these weekend tips into a profitable one.

Here’s my tips from the Premier League for the matches taking place on Saturday this coming weekend.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 5th May

Stoke City v Crystal Palace – Draw – The opening game on Saturday sees Stoke City welcome Crystal Palace to the bet365 Stadium in what is now a must-win game for the home side. Three successive draws have yielded just three points for Stoke and they remain three points from safety, but with a considerably worse goal difference than 17th place Swansea City. In effect, that amounts to an additional point for the Swans, so Stoke need a win but they are facing a Crystal Palace side which now finds itself in 11th place after a thumping 5-0 win over Leicester last weekend, their fourth game in a row without defeat. Barring an unmitigated disaster, that would put Palace safe and I think they’ll grab the point they need to make extra certain of that by condemning Stoke City to their fourth draw in a row here.

Bournemouth v Swansea City – Draw – Both of these sides have hit poor form at a bad time of the season, though Bournemouth’s total of 38 points means that they should be safe for another year at least. Swansea though are without a win in five and they are in 17th place in the table, just one ahead of Southampton and in real danger. The Cherries are not in great form, having lost all of their last three games, but they have faced some tough teams in that run and I fancy them to bring it to an end here. That said, I think Swansea are so desperate for a point that they may well just do enough against a leaky Bournemouth defence to grab what could be a precious point in their battle against the drop.

Leicester City v West Ham – Away Win – What has happened to Leicester City of late? The Foxes have gone from being one of the most dangerous and in-form sides in the Premier League to looking like a pale shadow of their former selves. Rumours are rife that players are not happy with Claude Puel, and it would not be the first time that this has happened at the club. Things are not great at West Ham either with Andy Carroll sent home from training on Tuesday after an ‘altercation’ and the team were thumped 4-1 last weekend by Manchester City. However, the Hammers have shown a bit of fight for David Moyes and I think that is something Leicester are lacking. I know it is a long shot, but I am backing the Hammers to get a rare away win here.

Everton v Southampton – Draw – The win at home to Bournemouth last week was massive for Mark Hughes and Southampton. It narrowed the gap on Swansea to just one point with both teams having three games to go and it means that the Saints now have renewed hope of avoiding the drop. They face an Everton side though in good form at home, but it should be remembered that Southampton did beat the Toffee’s 4-1 earlier in the season. Everton though will fancy their chances against a Southampton defence which has leaked goals worryingly easily of late, but I think that win last week gives Southampton a fighting chance here. As a result, I’m backing them to sneak what could be a crucial point here.
