Elsewhere on these pages you’ll find individual previews for some of Sunday’s matches, but here we wanted to indulge ourselves a little and go with a long-odds acca and see if we can round off this Premier League season with a bang.
There’s not been a single matchday this season that saw all teams getting on the scoresheet as there’s usually two to three games where at least one team draws a blank.
Let’s go through all of the final fixtures then and pour over the stats to see if we can find a mammoth, winning Acca to top off what’s been an intriguing season.
* All games kick-off at 15:00
Arsenal are ending the season in a decent bit of form. It has absolutely nothing to do with certain players doing their best to impress other coaches to get a move away. Zero connection. Zilch. The Gunners have won four of their last five in the Premier League, losing the other one. At home they’ve won two of their last five, drawing one and losing two, keeping zero clean sheets.
Brighton have scored in all of their last three matches. Which is slightly unusual. They’ve only scored in four Premier League games-in-a-row twice this season, will they make it three? If they were against anyone else we’d say no, but Arsenal’s defence doesn’t understand the meaning of that word. We’ll start this off with a Yes.
Both Teams To Score has landed in exactly 50% of home Aston Villa Premier League matches, but in only eight of Chelsea’s 18 (44%) away matches and since Thomas Tuchel took charge in late January, they’ve kept a clean sheet in four of their eight away Premier League games.
Chelsea must win here to be assured of Champion League football next season and Tuchel has really tightened up their defence since arriving. Just to illustrate this, Chelsea have only conceded three goals over their last seven matches.
Fulham have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League, but Both Teams To Score: Yes is odds-on to land here. Why? Newcastle, that’s why. Toon have kept a total of three clean sheets over their 18 away Premier League matches this season.
The Cottagers kept five at home this season in the league. They’re almost as bad as each other, so they should be able to score against each other. We’re not going to argue with the market on this one, we’re going with Yes.
Both Teams To Score has landed in 50% of home Leeds Premier League matches and in 61% of away West Brom games. Big Sam’s handed in his notice and you know yourself, his workers aren’t going to be paying any attention to his instructions since they know he’s leaving.
Have you ever listened to a boss after you found out they were off? West Borm will play with absolute abandonment and freedom they’ve only dreamed of. Of course, both teams will score at Elland Road.
There is plenty to play for here for both sides. Leicester have to win to give their Champions League hopes the best shot, while Spurs will be doing their best to get into the Europa League. And then there’s Harry Kane who will be trying to get them in from all angles to add a few quid onto his asking price.
Then again, Spurs have played hardball in the past and Kane is contracted until 2024. Five of their last seven meetings have seen Both Teams To Score landing and with so much to play for here, it should do so again.
Since returning to the Premier League, Palace have scored at Anfield in five of their seven meetings there, with Both Teams To Score landing in all five of those seven matches. Liverpool’s record of clean sheets is bloody awful at home in the league, with just four over their 18 matches. Palace have netted in all six of their most recent away matches and they’re good enough to get one against a leaky Liverpool defence.
Man City kind of gave up defending at home a few weeks ago, they’ve conceded in all six of their most recent home Premier League games. Everton don’t have the best record of away goals though, scoring just two goals over their last five on their travels. However, Both Teams To Score has landed in all five of their most recent encounters here, and Everton are chasing European football. We’re going with a Yes here.
Sheffield United have scored just three goals over their last nine home/away matches, striking just three over their last six at home. Burnley’s away scoring record is pretty good and their away clean sheets stars aren’t too bad with four over their last nine. The market is backing the Blades to get a rare goal here. We think it’s wishful thinking and we’re going with the value.
West Ham just don’t do home clean sheets. They don’t have to, they prefer to outscore their opponents. Which is the way football should be played. Southampton’s away scoring record isn’t the best though.
So long as West Ham don’t lose (and Spurs win) they’ll be playing European football next season. We’re going to have to go with a Yes here though, as we just don’t trust that Hammer’s backline to keep a rare clean sheet.
Three out of the last four meetings between the sides in all competitions here have seen Both Teams To Score landing. Both teams are usually good for a goal in the home/away games. Wolves have only not netted in four of their home league matches this season. Meanwhile, United have been scoreless in just five of their 18. With those records it has to be a Yes.
