The business end is at its nadir and we still don’t know who is going to go down, who will finish in the top-4 and well Chelsea are not yet winners. Maybe this Premier League week they will fetch it or who knows a turmoil is at the end.
The best thing about this week for Premier League fans is that they are going to witness 15 games in total as ten teams are poised with an extra game in hand. Talking about the extra game, Arsenal will be again having a double Gameweek with a visit to Stoke City and a home welcome of already relegated Sunderland. Arsene Wenger will be hopeful that he can squeeze out results from both the games in the process to keep his top-4 run alive. Well, Stoke is officially saved and have guaranteed Premier League football next season but they can finish as low as 17th, just above the relegation zone.
Manchester United somehow got a result against Celta Vigo in the Europa League to move into the finals of the tournament in hope of gaining a Champions League position indirectly. Suddenly, the UEL is getting unwanted attention and both the finalists United and Ajax will be looking to win the tournament. An Ajax win will also give them an opportunity to qualify directly as they won’t have to play a qualifier and the playoff. Jose Mourinho is likely to start a second fiddle side against the mighty Londoners who still have an outside edge to win the league if Chelsea fails to win both of their remaining games.
Spurs and United might be the most glamourous game this Premier League weekend, but Hull City and Crystal Palace’s face-off might be the most important this week. Crystal Palace have 38 points while Hull City have 34 points as both teams have two games to play for. Although Palace has the home advantage, you can never be too sure of anything in football. If Hull pulls off a win this week and Swansea fail to beat Sunderland, then Swansea can be on the brink of relegation come next week.
Liverpool test a battle of patient and deliverance. We know how brutal Jurgen Klopp’s men can be upfront but then again their failure against the lower sides in the league will make fans ponder whether they can win against the Hammers in a fight for top-4. A win in this Premier League game will give them all but a top-4 finish if Arsenal and United fail to get a win.
Who do you think will finish in the Premier League top-4? Comment below.
