After heroic wins in Europe for English sides this week, all eyes will revert back to the Premier League as another season comes to an end this weekend.
Though we already know the relegated outfits, there are sides still battling it out for European qualification spots, not to mention the small question of determining who will be crowned champions.
After heroic wins in Europe for English sides this week, all eyes will now be on Man City and Liverpool to see if they can reach the latter stages of the tournament.
Our football betting expert picks out the best bets from the pick of this week’s elite Premier League action.
Manchester City v Brighton & Hove Albion
Manchester City just have to win on their visit to Brighton to seal a second straight Premier League title and it’s pretty hard to imagine them stumbling at this final hurdle.
They have put together 13 consecutive victories in the league, with goalkeeper Ederson having produced 10 shut-outs during that run, and there’s value in backing them to score in both halves at 10/1 with Grosvenorsport.com.
While City have so often been sublime, playing an attacking style of football that cuts so easily through teams like a knife through butter, we have seen titles decided on the final day of the season before, and City will be wary of Liverpool snatching it from them the way they so dramatically usurped Manchester United seven years ago.
Brighton, however, wouldn’t just allow City to coast to victory, a resilience evident when getting a 1-1 draw at Arsenal last time out. Chris Hughton’s side had already been guaranteed safety the day before at Cardiff’s expense, but still defended as if their season depended on it at the Emirates.
So I think draw at half-time this time around could prove a handy one to back at 11/5.
Tottenham Hotspur v Everton
It has been a long season for Spurs and, having just secured their place in a Champions League final for the first time in their history, there’s a chance they could take their foot off the gas against a stubborn Everton side this weekend.
Fourth place still isn’t guaranteed for the Lilywhites, though it would take a monumental slip up from them in terms of goal difference, but I think this fixture has a draw written all over it and it can be backed at 5/2.
The Toffees missed out on the final European spot, despite their best efforts, so they will be wanting to finish their season on a high when they visit Spurs’ new stadium for the first time.
I can’t see it being a goalless affair though, and Lucas Moura, fresh from his hat-trick heroics on Wednesday, is available at 11/2 with Grosvenorsport.com to be the first goalscorer, and is the same price to be the last one, too.
