This is it; the final day of the Premier League season is upon us. Manchester City have been crowned champions, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion have been relegated, with Swansea City needed a ludicrous goal swing to avoid joining them and all but two teams really have nothing left to play for. The battle for the fourth and final Champions League spot is the only real story on Sunday, with Liverpool needing to avoid defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion to seal it. In this article I will be putting together a 4-fold bet for you to take advantage of, with all of the odds coming courtesy of Coral and accurate at the time of writing.
Newcastle United vs Chelsea
Chelsea may live to rue their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield Town in midweek, a result which means Liverpool now need only a draw on Sunday to finish in the top four. This could well be Antonio Conte’s last game in charge of Chelsea and he will be doing all he can to put the pressure on Liverpool above them. Newcastle have lost four straight games since hitting the 40-point mark and their players look to well and truly be on the beach, so I’m backing a comfortable Chelsea win in this one.
Chelsea to win – 8/13
Burnley vs Bournemouth
Sean Dyche has done a wonderful job at Burnley this season, taking one of the favourites for relegation to European qualification. Burnley are winless in their last four matches, but on the final day, in front of a raucous home crowd, I fancy them to beat a Bournemouth side who have won just one of their last five matches.
Burnley to win – 6/5
Swansea City vs Stoke City
Swansea City need a miracle to stay up; they are three points behind Southampton, but need a nine goal swing to survive. With Southampton facing a Manchester City side who have scored 105 goals this season, you never know, but first and foremost Swansea must beat Stoke City. Stoke City are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League with just six wins all season and no wins in their last 13 matches, so I’m backing a Swansea victory here.
Swansea City to win – 20/23
Crystal Palace vs West Bromwich Albion
It has been a quite bizarre season for Crystal Palace. After failing to score or pick up any points from their first seven games, they looked like certainties for relegation, but Roy Hodgson has come in and rejuvenated this talented side and they can now finish in the top half with a win on Sunday. Only Manchester City and Chelsea are in better form than Crystal Palace over the last five games and they should have too much for a relegated West Bromwich Albion side in this one.
Crystal Palace to win – 3/4
Total 4-Fold – 11/1 (Coral)
