This season will go down in Premier League history as the strangest ever, and it will be hard for it to be topped. With Leicester City sitting five points clear from the pack, they are now the favorites for the title. No one of sane mind would have said that with a handful of games left that Leicester would be in pole position. Without any distractions from other competitions that the big teams will need to deal with, it could be the biggest shock in the history of the game.
None of the top teams in the League seem to want to win the title this season. All apart from Chelsea who have had their chance throughout the season to take advantage but none have succeeded. It looks like it will go down to the last day of the season unless Leicester can keep up their impressive form. If any of the top six teams can win all their remaining games from now until the end of the season, they stand an excellent chance of winning the Premiership Crown.
At the bottom end of the table it looks like the fight to stay in the division is going to be between three clubs. Sunderland, Norwich, and Newcastle. Sunderland have the best chance of survival but the battle to stay in the league could go down to the last day of the season.

EPL Predictions for week 30
Norwich City F.C. Vs. Manchester City F.C.
Manchester City hammered bottom club Aston Villa at the weekend away from home 0 – 4. They will be hoping that they can do the same again against third from bottom club Norwich City. Norwich is in deep trouble, after a bright start they have been dreadful, and their form has declined. Confidence is a big factor in football and they are lacking in it big time. They are coming from a 1 – 0 loss against Swansea City at the weekend and it could be a long 90 minutes for them.
Predictions for EPL this week match is Manchester City winning 0 – 4.
West Ham United F.C.Vs. Watford F.C.
This game has been postponed. When the two teams do play West Ham will be the favorites if they keep up their current form. With Dimitri Payet back in the team they have been completely transformed. He is vital to them and if they are going to make a top four finish they will need him to stay fit for the rest of the season. Watford after a bright start have slipped in recent weeks, but on their day they can beat anyone.
EPL Week 30 predictions for this match is West Ham winning 2 – 1.
Manchester United F.C. Vs. Crystal Palace F.C
Manchester United had looked to turn a corner but last weekend’s loss against West Brom was a huge setback. With Leicester looking certain to make a top four place, one of the big teams is going to miss out on Champions League Football. If the Red Devils do not qualify this season, Van Gaal has to be a certainty to be fired. He has spend 250 million pounds and watching them play this season has been an embarrassment for all the Man U fans. They currently sit in fifth place, one point behind West Ham United. The game has been postponed.
EPL predictions for Week 30 match is a 0 – 0 draw.
Sunderland A.F.C. Vs. Everton F.C.
Sunderland has by some miracle got themselves out of the relegation zone. They are one point above Norwich City and will want to win this one. They will want to put some daylight between themselves and the drop zone. They managed to draw 1 – 1 against Southampton away from home at the weekend so they will be high on confidence. Everton is not playing for anything apart from pride, so it depends on if the players are fully motivated for this one. They lost 4 – 3 against West Ham at the weekend in a thrilling game. The match is postponed.
EPL predictions for this week game is a 2 – 2 draw.
Stoke City F.C. Vs. Southampton F.C.
Stoke this season have either been breathtaking to watch or dreadful. Against the top teams, the players seem to find another gear and perform better. It is against the smaller clubs where they have struggled. They managed to draw against Chelsea at the weekend and will hope that they can sneak a Europa League place. They are currently eight points away from achieving this, so it is highly unlikely. After going through a bad patch of form during the middle of the season, Southampton have improved. They are still way off the form they hit last season due to key departures.
Predictions for EPL this week match is a 0 – 0 draw.
A.F.C. Bournemouth Vs. Swansea City A.F.C.
Bournemouth were the betting favorites to get relegated at the start of the season. They currently sit on 35 points and are 14th in the table. One more win should see them safe which is a great achievement for the newly promoted club.Over the weekend, they thrashed Newcastle 1 – 3 away from home and will be hoping they can keep their form playing at home. Swansea’s win over the weekend against Norwich was vital. It has now provided them with some breathing space from the relegation zone. The team that comes out on top, will be virtually certain of maintaining their status as a Premier League club.
EPL Week 30 predictions this match is a 2 – 1 win to Bournemouth.
Arsenal F.C. Vs. West Bromwich Albion F.C.
The Gunners have not been consistent this season and should have wrapped up the title. Instead they sit in third place three points behind North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Coming back from 2 – 1 down with ten men at the weekend against Spurs was vital to keep them in the running for the Premiership Crown. They can not afford to slip up from now until the end of the season if they are to achieve this. West Brom sits on 36 points so one more win will see them safe. It all depends on if the Arsenal players can hold their nerves to get the result that they need.
EPL predictions for Week 30 match is a 2 – 1 wins to Arsenal.
Liverpool F.C.Vs. Chelsea F.C.
After the Reds beat Crystal Palace at the weekend 1 – 2 they have moved up to seventh place. They are now only three points behind Manchester United and have a game in hand. Liverpool are been very inconsistent this season which is to no surprise due to changing a manager mid-season. Chelsea needs to write this season off completely and start fresh again next season. They will have a new manager in place with an open checkbook by the summer. This game has been postponed.
EPL predictions for this week match is a 3 – 2 win to Liverpool.
Aston Villa F.C.Vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
Villa has been consistently dreadful all year round no matter who the manager has been. They are going to have to rebuild completely next season and prepare for a life in The Championship.It is going to be an uphill battle to get out from that league as it is the most competitive first division in the world. Spurs have had their chances to go top of the league over the last few weeks and each time have failed to capitalize. If they had managed to hold onto their lead against ten-man Arsenal at the weekend, they would of been the favorites for the title. They are now five points adrift and can not make a slip-up, or the dream is over. They are still involved in the Europa League which could be a big distraction and derail their title chances.
Predictions for EPL this week match is a 0 – 3 win to Tottenham Hotspur.
Leicester City F.C. Vs Newcastle United F.C.
This game is scheduled for Monday night which could add to the pressure for the Leicester City players. They will know all the other results over the weekend, so it will be down to them to hold their nerves. They have managed to do this better than the top teams in the league so far and will be interesting to see if they can continue as the pressure builds toward the final matches. Newcastle was dreadful over the weekend and was thrashed by Bournemouth at home 1 – 3. After the game, there were many called for manager Steve McClaren to be fired. He is hanging on by a thread, and if they get beat once again, the betting odds are not stacked in his favor of being in charge next season.
EPL Week 30 predictions for this match is a 1 – 0 win to Leicester.
