SPURS 3 V 1 WATFORD (12.30)

Spurs kept the title race alive with their last gasp heroics, scoring three goals in six minutes to leave Swansea shell-shocked. Such an effort could have a downside, but this young Spurs team are running on adrenalin and excitement, and a home crowd shouldn't see a dip in their commitment or energy levels.

Watford come into the game on the back of two home wins, against Sunderland and West Brom, where they looked rather impressive, and will head to White Hart Lane looking for the points that secure their Premier League future, for at least another season. However, Spurs have never lost in the Premier League against Watford, winning five of seven encounters, and they remain unbeaten in 15 successive home games, scoring in their last 23.

What We Sayin’?

Troy Deeney hasn't scored in four games against Spurs, who boast the meanest defence in the league. Cue the 9/1 for him to net first. Hornets' stopper Gomes is a doubt, however, and we can see an exhuberant Spurs wearing Watford down. Deeney 1st GS and Spurs 3-1 pays: 125/1.   


MANCHESTER CITY 1 V 2 HULL  

Hull will be on a high after beating fellow strugglers Boro 4-2 and will look to cause a shock at City. However, The Tigers have only won one of nine previous meetings but under new manager Marco Silva the players are certainly earning their stripes. Indeed, since his appointment, only Chelsea (23), Tottenham Hotspur (23) and Everton (21) have won more points than the Tigers (17). However, Hull travel with midweek scorer Harry Maguire the latest to pick up a knock. Tom Huddlestone remains sidelined through injury.

City will be smarting after their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea all but ended their title hopes. Pep Guardiola will be looking for a reaction, but it will be interesting to see how his charges react. The Citizens' defence is aging and looking rather vulnerable and we've a feeling Hull's tenacity could be the key here.  

What We Sayin’?

A long shot, granted, but we'll take Hull to win (12/1) and have a dabble at the forecast: City 1 v 2 Hull (40/1)  


MIDDLESBROUGH 2 V 1 BURNLEY

Burnley have enough to stay up, don't they? Sean Dyche's men are looking nervously over their shoulder as they season enters the final stages. Sitting in 14th with 35 points another win should see them safe, but they may have to wait a week until then. With Boro finally finding their scoring boots in their defeat against Hull, they will be desperate for the win.

Despite Boro's defence (Friend, Chambers and da Silva) all being out, we can see The Teesiders edging a close battle.   

What We Sayin’?

Not one for the purists, but Burnley's atrocious away form leads us to believe they'll need to wait at least a week until they secure the three points that will (probably) guarantee safety. Negrado to score at anytime is 7/4, and seems worthy of a few pennies...  


STOKE 1 V 2 LIVERPOOL

Had this been played earlier in the season, the result could have been somewhat different, but you get the feeling The Potters are treading water, waiting for the season to end. Stoke can suprise, certainly at The Britannia, and whilst there aren't any sure things in football, Liverpool need the win more. The late draw against Bournemouth will have stung, so expect an animated Klopp in hypermode as he attempts to cajole his players back into that winning rut.

The 'hips don't lie' has returned to training and is now fit (Xherdan Shaqiri, for those under 30 and/or not 'pop pickers') for Stoke and he could thrive in a midfiled that could be missing influential Liverpool lynchpin Philippe Coutinho, whilst livewire Saido Mane is out for the season with knee problems. Add to the mix the fact that Lallana and Henderson are still sidelined and you begin to wonder where the creativity might stem from for the Redmen. 

What We Sayin’?

A tough one to call. Initially we were all over an away win, but Liverpool's injuries could see them struggle. Goals seem likely, so we'll take BTTS at 8/11.


AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0 V 2 CHELSEA

Are Chelsea starting to get nervous now we’re at the home straight and the games are running out? Leading for the majority of the way this term, the Blues weren’t convincing against Manchester City, but, we suppose the mark of every good side is winning despite not being at your best. Chelsea have won six in the eight meetings with Bournemouth, however, you may remember that Glenn Murray’s goal caused a huge upset at Stamford Bridge last season as the Cherries earned a 0-1 victory against the then Premier League holders.

A lot has changed for the Blues since then and this could potentially be a banana skin for Antonio Conte’s troops, with Bournemouth pretty much safe and in some decent form following draws against tricky opponents in Southampton and Liverpool, so maybe this won’t be easy for the visitors, however, it’s hard to look past them.

What We Sayin’?

We’re backing Eden Hazard to continue his scoring form by bagging first in a 0-2 away win for the west Londoners at 25/1.


WEST HAM UNITED 2 V 1 SWANSEA CITY

You want a six-pointer? Well this is it! If West Ham win then they could potentially survive for another season in the Premier League, but a defeat could be crucial for Slaven Bilic’s hopes of holding on to his job but also boost the visitors’ own aims to remain in the top flight.

Paul Clement and his side have dropped off slightly following their mini recent revival but have only beaten West Ham once in their last eight meetings with the Hammers. However, they do know that a win – alongside Hull not earning victory at Manchester City will take them out of the relegation zone. A defeat for the Swans could leave them further adrift and this one really could go either way. We doubt a draw would suit either party.

What We Sayin’?

We feel there will be goals in this one and a shrewd move may well be for reported West Ham target Gylfi Sigurdsson scoring at anytime at 2/1.


WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1 V 0 SOUTHAMPTON

What’s the odds this match will be last on Match Of The Day on Saturday evening? We should probably open a market for that actually. Anyway, both sides are probably just going through the motions before they all jet off to Dubai (that’s where all the footballers go for some reason, right?) in the summer for their holidays. In fact the only highlight for both sets of squads is that it’s another game closer to the end of the campaign.

However, whilst both sides won’t really be too bothered whether they win, lose or draw, we’re behind the Baggies to just about get the job done. The record against the Saints isn’t nailing a victory for them, but this WBA is a different animal to the teams from yesteryear.

What We Sayin’?

Gareth McAuley is extremely useful in the opposition’s box. That’s exactly why we’re behind the big centre back to score first – probably with a header – in a narrow 1-0 home win at 85/1.
