Everton – Manchester United
Manchester United couldn’t turn their possession against Chelsea into goals and will probably have to forget about the title at this point of the season. They still have to guarantee a top four spot while Liverpool are lurking and waiting for a mistake from the Red Devils. Everton have had a disappointing campaign and will want to quickly forget it. They’re safe from relegation, but a place in Europe for next season seems impossible. Still, their recent form is impressive and they’re undefeated in the last five league fixtures, winning four and drawing one. The Toffees have a couple of injuries in midfield in the likes of McCarthy, Pienaar and Osman but those three could still feature on Sunday. United will still definitely be without Carrick, Rojo and Jones, while Blind can make a return in midfield. It certainly won’t be an easy game for United, but they will be more motivated to come out with the three points from this and that could play a huge role.
Tip: 2 @ 2.20
Arsenal – Chelsea
Chelsea are very close to winning the Premier League title, but they need to focus on the upcoming derby against Arsenal. The Gunners are in terrific form, having won their last eight games in the league. Both teams will be extremely motivated to do well on Sunday and anything but a win for Arsenal could provide to be the crucial blow for the title race. Chelsea managed to snatch a win against United at home and will probably consider the same approach against Arsenal. The hosts will be without the injured Oxlade-Chamberlain while Mertesacker has a knock and probably won’t be risked. It’s still unclear which one of Chelsea’s strikers will play, even though Jose Mourinho confirmed that Drogba is fit and a decision for Costa will be made before the start of the match. Arsene Wenger hasn’t won in any of his twelve matches against Mourinho but if his team plays without pressure we may see a high both teams finding the net.
Tip: Both teams to score @ 1.83
Borussia Monchengladbach – Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday and can now solely focus on retaining the second spot in the Bundesliga. A win here against Gladbach could pretty much seal the deal. But unluckily for Wolfsburg they’ll be without key players Andre Schurrle and Kevin De Bruyne. Borussia’s home form has been outstanding and they’ve won their last seven home league fixtures. The hosts scored at least two goals in their last three home meetings against this opponent and considering both teams’ attacking strengths we may see a high-scoring game here.
Tip: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.73
Napoli – Sampdoria
Napoli are through in the 1/2 finals of the Europa League and five points from the third spot which gives the right for participation in the Champions League next season. Rafa Benitez and his players have been in good form recently and face Sampdoria who are only three points behind them. The visitors won only two points from their last three games and now face the difficult task of playing against a team in good form. Christian Maggio is suspended for the hosts and will miss this game while Fabrizio Cacciatore will miss because of an injury for Sampdoria. Napoli won five of their last six home fixtures against their opponents on Sunday and have the quality to do it again.
Tip: 1 @ 1.50
