West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool
Having dealt with Manchester United last Sunday, Darren Moore now has an opportunity to pull off another shock, to complete the double against the two most successful teams in our game. And we think he could just do it. Liverpool will have one possibly both eyes on upcoming Champions League antics, and the Baggies are still mathematically alive. Ladbrokes offer 16/1 on a 1-0 home win, but given the most recent appointment as Baggies manager, expect the board to bring in Gary Megson, regardless of Moore’s heroics.
Arsenal vs West Ham United
The farewell tour begins, albeit with fewer fans and fewer hits than Mr Wenger probably envisaged a decade ago. And if there is one man who knows what trouble lies ahead when a managerial legend sacks it off, it is the man in the opposing dugout. He seems revitalised right now however, and with Arsenal set to rest players ahead of the Madrid match, this could be a difficult day for the home side. West Ham are 19/4 with the magic sign to notch a victory, and we would take that right now.
Everton vs Newcastle
No love lost between these two chunky monkeys, means that an otherwise meaningless mid-table end-of-season kickabout suddenly takes on new meaning. Lob in the rumours that Rafa may even replace Big Sam at Everton in the summer, and we have a fixture that could ignite. We fancy Newcastle to win it too, so take the 23/10 with Ladbrokes.
Chelsea vs Southampton
2-0 Chelsea. 6/1. Get right on it.
