Gameweek 32 dawns upon us within a few days of the previous gameweek finishing, leaving us all with little time to celebrate or cry on the successes or failures of the gameweek gone by. Having said that, here’s our gameweek preview which highlights our predictions for how each game could pan out & picks out a few key players who we think are bound to deliver this gameweek.
Best of luck & we hope your arrows are green! Here is the gameweek 32 preview:
Tottenham vs Watford
The very first fixture of the gameweek sees the mighty Spurs welcome the Hornets in a tie that has its fate written all over it. Spurs are undefeated at home this season and Watford don’t seem to be a team that could trouble them. An easy win for Spurs.
STAR MAN: Christian Eriksen (8.8m)
The Spurs creator in chief will have to step up in the absence of their prolific forward Kane.
PREDICTION: Tottenham 3-0 Watford
Manchester City vs Hull
Another one of those fixtures where the giants of the league are up against a team fighting relegation. Hull have shown form lately after a dominating performance against Boro, but with the firepower the Citizens possess, this fixture seems like it’ll be finishing only one way.
STAR MAN: Sergio Aguero (12.7m)
We definitely can’t look any further than the little Argentine.
PREDICTION: Manchester City 3-1 Hull
Middlesbrough vs Burnley
Boro have been shambolic in recent weeks and show no signs of improvement as their winless streak goes on and on. Burnley on the other hand produced their trademark home win in the midweek fixtures as they look to reach the 40 point mark as soon as possible. This fixture seems like it’ll be a cagey affair, with both teams playing out a goalless draw.
STAR MAN: Victor Valdes (4.6m)
The Spaniard is bound to have a busy day in-between the sticks.
PREDICTION: Middlesbrough 0-0 Burnley
Stoke vs Liverpool
Stoke come into this fixture on the back of a disappointing away defeat to Burnley and will definitely be looking to make amends at home this week. Liverpool on the other hand are unbeaten in 5 league games and have shown the urge to finish in the top four this season. Liverpool look to be the favourites to win this fixture but an away trip to Stoke is always a tough ask.
STAR MAN: Divock Origi (6.2m)
In the absence of Mane, Klopp will depend on the youngster to deliver.
PREDICTION: Stoke 1-2 Liverpool
West Brom vs Southampton
Both the Baggies & the Saints have not been convincing at all in recent weeks & will be looking to step up a gear if they are to progress any further up the table. The Baggies have already reached the 40 point mark while for the Saints, the battling is still going on. It seems like it’ll be an end to end game with both sides battling for the 3 points.
STAR MAN: Nacer Chadli (6.0m)
The Belgian will definitely have to step up in order to carry his team forward this season.
PREDICTION: West Brom 1-1 Southampton
West Ham vs Swansea
Both teams have been pretty ordinary this season and haven’t performed up to expectations. Swansea have struggled on their travels this season and even though the Hammers don’t have the best of home forms, this one should be on they perform in.
STAR MAN: Andy Carroll (6.3m)
The big man hasn’t been amongst the goals recently and will be eyeing this game as an opportunity to get back into scoring form.
PREDICTION: West Ham 2-1 Swansea
Bournemouth vs Chelsea
The Cherries don’t have a very good record against the teams in the top half of the table whereas Chelsea, clear at the top of the table, won’t be easy to beat at all. The Blues have lost just 3 games all season and they will certainly look at this as an opportunity to gain more ground ahead of their rivals.
STAR MAN: Diego Costa (10.6m)
Has been kept quiet in recent weeks but is long over due to score and stake his claim for the Golden Boot award.
PREDICTION: Bournemouth 0-2 Chelsea
Sunderland vs Machester United
Sunderland are now winless in all but 1 of their last 10 Premier League fixtures and are almost certainly destined for relegation. On the other hand, this Manchester United team is struggling to see out a win, despite their lengthy unbeaten streak. Considering Sunderland’s current form, this should be a pretty straightforward victory for the Red Devils.
STAR MAN: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (11.4m)
After scoring on his return last time around, he will be looking to add to his season tally once again.
PREDICTION: Sunderland 0-2 Manchester United
Everton vs Leicester
Everton’s hope of getting into the top four seem to be long gone but they will be looking to finish as high as possible in the table. Leicester on the other hand have continued their remarkable form after the dismissal of Ranieri and Vardy seems to have found his feet again. Should make for a very open contest with Everton having the upper hand.
STAR MAN: Romelu Lukaku (10.4m)
The big man has failed to produce in recent games so he will be looking to get a goal or two to return back to form.
PREDICTION: Everton 3-1 Leicester
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
The Gunners have won just two of their last seven fixtures and are looking to salvage a space in the top four. Crystal Palace on the other hand, after a shaky start under Big Sam, have suddenly picked up their tempo and now find themselves in 16th place and out of the drop zone. Away at Selhurst might be a difficult game for the Gunners but they’ll surely come out all guns blazing.
STAR MAN: Theo Walcott (7.3m)
He could be key in opening up the Palace defence with his runs from the right wing position.
PREDICTION: Crystal Palace 1-3 Arsenal
