Tottenham vs Sunderland
Tottenham is currently sitting in fourth place in the EPL. Sunderland has struggled to get points all season, which is why they are the 19th best team in the league. While Tottenham has not been a powerhouse at home this season, they should have no problem getting an easy victory against Sunderland. The vast skill difference between the team teams should allow Tottenham to get a 3-0 clean sheet victory in front of their home fans.
Newcastle United vs West Ham United
Newcastle United is currently sitting in the final relegation spot in the EPL, so they are going to be desperate for a win. While West Ham United is a more talented team, they have shown a tendency to play down to their opponents level against the weaker teams this season. In one of the more shocking EPL predictions for this week, Newcastle United finds a way to get a 2-1 victory at home against West Ham United.
Chelsea vs Everton
Chelsea has been the biggest disappointment in the English Premier League this season after impressively winning the league last season. Chelsea’s struggles have started to turn around since the club fired their manager, Jose Mourinho. Everton has average talent for the EPL, and it has shown all season. Since Chelsea has been playing much better of late, they have to be considered the strong favorites heading into this game at home. Our EPL Week 22 predictions give Chelsea a 2-0 victory over Everton.
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace’s solid showing this season has been one of the better stories in the EPL this year, but just do not have the same level of talent as Manchester City. Crystal Palace has been one of the better road teams in the league, but Manchester City is basically unbeatable at home. These two talented teams are going to put on a great match in Week 22, but Manchester City uses their talent advantage to find a way to get the 2-1 victory.
Bournemouth vs Norwich City
Both of these teams are near the bottom of the EPL table, so they will be searching for much needed points in hopes of avoiding relegation. This need for points may cause this to be one of least interesting games of the week. Neither team will want to take too many chances as they look to secure an easy goal on the counter attack. Our EPL predictions for Week 22 have this game being played to a lackluster 0-0 draw.
Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion
These teams appear to be evenly matched based on their position next to each other in the standings, but they are playing at completely different levels right now. West Bromwich Albion has displayed great form over the past few games while Southampton is struggling to get points against everyone right now. Southampton would normally be considered a slight favorite since they get to play in front of the home crowd, but their poor form makes it tough to pick them to win any game. In another upset, the predictions for EPL this week say West Bromwich Albion gets 1-0 win over Southampton.
Aston Villa vs Leicester City
The game between Liverpool and Manchester United on Sunday, January 17, is shaping up to be the best game of the week in the EPL. Both teams have the talent to win the league, but they have undergone a lot of struggles recently. Manchester City’s hopes of winning the league are gone, but they can still bounce back to earn a spot in the UEFA Champions League next year. These two talented teams should put on a great show for the fans as they both look to turn around their slightly disappointing seasons. The EPL predictions for this week have Liverpool and Manchester United playing to a 1-1 draw.
Stoke City vs Arsenal
Arsenal is in top form right now, which has helped propel them to the top of the league, and they do not plan on giving up that spot any time soon. Stoke City has quickly moved up a few spots in the EPL table over the last few games, but they are going to play their best game of the season to get this victory. While it is always easier to pull off an EPL upset when you get to play in front of your home fans, it is foolish to bet against Arsenal right now. They are team on a mission, so our predictions for EPL this week have them winning 2-1.
Swansea City vs Watford
The final game of the Week 22 slate will see Watford head on the road to take on Swansea City. While they have recently cooled off from their hot streak, Watford has proven they have the talent to finish in the top half of the English Premier League. Swansea City is battling for points each game in hopes of avoiding relegation. Watford easily wins this game if it was at home, but they may have a tough time getting the victory on the road. The EPL Week 22 predictions say Swansea City puts on a solid performance for their fans as they play Watford to a 1-1 draw.
