Wow, Week 27 already. Lot’s has happened since we last spoke. In a wild move Leicester has fired Claudio Ranieri. The defending champions parted ways with their beloved Italian coach then days later smoke Liverpool in a 3-1 win. Zlatan Manchester United won the Capital One Cup and Arsene Wenger still somehow has a job. The being said let’s get down to business.

SPARKNOTES: Liverpool v. Arsenal game of the week, Chelsea go into cruise control, Sunderland confirm they want to get relegated.

Saturday

Man United v. Bournemouth
Old Trafford, 7:30am
Manchester is riding high here. Fans pretending they recently won something important and choosing not to remember how much they spend on Pogba. Unfortunately they win here against a JV side. 2-0 Zlatan.

West Brom v. Crystal Palace
The Hawthorns, 10:00am

West Brom has been very sneaky. Very easy to overlook them as everything they do is under the radar. However my devices are on point and I’m predicting a top 8 finish from these lads. 1-0 West Brom.

Swansea v. Burnley
The Liberty, 10:00am
Swansea was able to score on the mighty Chelsea so they mean business. Burnley have exceeded expectations this season and they plan on staying up. This game will be good with tactical differences but I expect a draw. 2-2.

Watford v. Southampton
Vicarage Road, 10:00am
Battle at the bottom. Teams are sitting at 12th and 13th… aaaaand that is exactly how they will play. Not great, some mistakes but still some brilliance showing through. Watford 2-1.

Leicester City v. Hull
King Power, 10:00am
I really just have no idea what is going on in Leicester. They are having the season everyone expected them to have last year. Now we still expected so much some the same shit. Hull is abysmal as everyone expected so the Foxes should be able to hold strong. 2-0 Leicester.

Stoke v. Middlesbrough
The Britannia, 10:00am
Gotta take Stoke at home. Especially since Middlesbrough is effectively trying to get themselves relegated. Joe Allen is gonna be lock down and Shaqiri scores a Golazo. Stoke 2-0.

Liverpool v. Arsenal
Anfield, 12:30pm
Game of the week. Both teams are struggling by their extremely high standards. Liverpool have just been abysmal in the second half of the season. Arsenal wins and Arsene keeps his job. 2-1 Arsenal.

Sunday

Tottenham v. Everton
White Hart Lane, 8:30am
This is a must see as well. Possibly better than Liverpool Arsenal game. This is like the Phillies v. Mets playing the am day after Yanks v. Red Socks. It’s not getting as much press but as of recently the small teams have been better. Harry Kane has been to good for me not to believe he’ll play great. 3-2 Sp*rs.

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Tottenham Hotspur v Chelsea - White Hart Lane
Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game during the Barclays Premier League match at White Hart Lane, London.

Sunderland v. Man City
Stadium of Light, 11:00am
UPSET SPECIAL! I’m kidding. There is zero chance Man City loses this. 900-0 City.

Monday

West Ham v. Chelsea
London Stadium, 3:00pm
Great game for a Monday. Little rivalry action going on here. Get to leave work a little early get some Guinness in my belly. Really looking forward to this. Moses celebrates signing a new deal with an assist to Pedro in the 69th min. 4-0 Chelsea.

Last Weeks Comparison: Did I prematurely post? You know what maybe I did. Was I nearly spot on everywhere else? I was (drops mic).
