Crystal Palace F.C Vs. Everton F.C
The first game to kick off week 34 in the English Premier League is a midweek encounter between Place and Everton. Both teams have had similar seasons with them playing well at the start of the campaign but have been off the pace since the turn of the year.
Everton looks the most likely to win the game as they have one the league’s top goal scorers Romelu Lukaku. It sounds like the Belgian will be off next season, and if the Blues do not replace him, they could be relegation contenders next season. Without his goals this campaign, they would be fighting with the likes of Newcastle, Sunderland, and Norwich for survival.
Palace has played well but has found it tough to locate the back of the net. If they had Lukaku in their team this season, they would have been in with a chance of a top 5 finish. With nothing at stake apart from pride, both teams may settle for a draw.

Norwich City F.C Vs. Sunderland United F.C
It is a vital match at the bottom of the table between Norwich and Sunderland. They both can not survive, and one is certain for the drop. The winner of this game will go a very long way in deciding their fate. If Sam Allardyce had been in charge of the Black Cats at the start of the year, they probably would not be in this place. They bought poorly at the commencement of the season though and things have not thoroughly gelded together.
Norwich is the better positioned of the two, and a win will help their cause greatly to avoid the drop. They are at home and have played a lot better in recent weeks. Matches where both teams need a result so badly often end in a draw which is what I am predicting.
EPL Week 34 predictions 2 – 2
Newcastle United F.C Vs. Swansea City F.C
Under Rafael Benitez, Newcastle has improved, but the results have not gone their way. They need to win many games in a row to have any chance of escaping relegation. It will be a sorrowful and angry day at St James Park if they do go down. They managed to bounce back to the Premier League before, but it is going to be a daunting task if they are to do it again. All of their expensive stars will need to be sold, and the club is in a mess.
Swansea is only just doing better than Newcastle and should live to see another day. It has big a disappointing season for them, and they will need to go back to the drawing board. If they do not improve next year and get worse, they will be fighting relegation.

Man United F.C Vs. Aston Villa F.C
The Red Devils are on the back of a three-nil hammering at White Hart Lane. They are now four points from a Champions League spot and in deep trouble. If they do not qualify for the competition, it will be a disaster, especially when you consider Van Gaal has spent £250 million. Only a win will do in their fight for qualifying for the world’s premier cup competition.
Villa is down and out with still time remaining on the scoreboard. It must be a real embarrassment for all those connected to the club. They used to be one of the major forces in English Football and now they can not even stay in the top flight. They will need to sell a lot of under-performing stars and pray a lot if they are to get out of the Championship.

West Brom F.C Vs. Watford F.C
West Brom lost to Man City in week 33; they will be looking to bounce back at home against a tough Watford side. They have looked solid all year which is something you would expect from a Tony Pulis team. The board will have to try to keep their manager happy during the summer transfer window if they are to hold onto him.
Watford managed to get a draw last week and are sitting safely in the middle of the table. With both teams safe, it will be down to which manager can motivate his players the most.
Predictions for EPL this week 1 – 2
Everton F.C Vs. Southampton F.C
Everton plays two days again after playing their game in hand against Crystal Palace. They are going to have to make significant changes to the team if they are going to have the energy to compete against Southampton. If they are not well prepared for this game, they could end up losing by a large margin.
Southampton thrashed Newcastle 3 – 1 in their last outing and will be hoping to inflict the same damaged against a tired Everton Side. The Saints are hitting form, and if they play well, they could get many goals.
EPL Week 34 predictions 1 – 3
Chelsea F.C Vs. Manchester City F.C
Chelsea lost last week away from home 1 – 0 and will be hoping they can bounce back against Manchester City. Both teams have struggled this campaign and even though this game does not matter much on paper, they will be hoping to win it for their fans.
City has created a four paint gap separating them and United. They are favorites to qualify for the Champions League next term but will need to beat teams like Chelsea to do it. This game could go either way depending on the attitude of the players on the day. Next up for Man City will be Newcastle united as they play on Week 35.

Leicester City F.C Vs. West Ham United F.C
Leicester was expected to have slipped up by now and struggle to keep up a top four finish. They have surprised everyone by not moving away and even increasing the lead they have over their rivals. They will have no better chance than now to win their first Premier League title. It will be a fairytale come true if they make it and the odds are stacked in their favor.
If the Hammers were able to keep up their current form throughout a full season, they would be heavily backed to win the Premier League. They are just a couple of signings away from being serious contenders next year. If anyone can beat the league leaders, West Ham can and it could be a turning point in the race to be crowned Champions.
EPL predictions for this week 1 – 2
Bournemouth F.C Vs. Liverpool F.C
Bournemouth will be pleased with the season just was gone, and it is a great base to build upon. They were able to win some games on the bounce which enabled them to be guaranteed safety with still matches remaining.
Liverpool has been very inconsistent which is to be expected when a team changes manager mid-season. Klopp can not be judged until next season when he can enter the transfer market to put his stamp on the team. The Reds fans will be hoping that they can buy better than they have in seasons past.
Predictions for EPL this week 1 – 2
Arsenal F.C Vs. Crystal Palace F.C
The Gunners should have the titled tied up by Xmas this year around. The fans expected, and they have been badly let down. Instead of challenging for the title they will be fighting for 3rd or 4th place yet again. It was remaining to be seen how many more season Gunner fans will allow this to happen without demanding a change of manager.
Palace will be tired as it is their second game in 48 hours. They will be hoping they can get an early goal to give them something to hold on for. If they do not, Arsenal should be able to take advantage in the second half and grab a goal or two.

Stoke City F.C Vs. Tottenham Hotspur F.C
Stoke was on the end of a hammering away from home at Anfield last week. They are a better team at home and will be hoping the fans help them get the energy needed to beat Spurs.
Tottenham proved last week by defeating Manchester United 3 – 0 that they are going to be fighting for the title till the end. They will have to maintain a winning run to do this. They have looked in fine form and are capable of doing it. If they can close the gap between now and the last game, they are in with a big chance of winning their first title in over 55 years.
