Midweek Football Preview

The games are coming in fast. 

Premier League MW 24

Arsenal vs. Cardiff City

5th placed Arsenal go up against 18th placed Cardiff City. Arsenal have several questions to answer in recent games with their defence and squad depth under scrutiny. Cardiff City are just trying to survive in the Premier League and so it should be an interesting game at the Emirates. Arsenal should return to winning ways though. 

Fulham vs. Brighton

Fulham are 7 points off of safety as things are not looking great for Ranieri and his side. Brighton are 13th and have had a decent to great season till now. Brighton are stronger at home and decent away. This game could go either way. 

Huddersfield vs. Everton

Huddersfield are 10 points off of safety and should be heading into the Championship. Everton are 11th and have had mixed results in recent weeks. Everton should add another win to their season as they look to head into a Europa League place. 

Wolverhampton vs. West Ham

8th vs. 10th as Wolves face off against West Ham. Wolves and West Ham are fighting for the Europa League spot and a top 10 finish and Wolves should win this game at home even though West Ham are decent opponents. An interesting game to keep an eye on. 

Man United vs. Burnley

After being thrashed 5-0 in Manchester against City in the FA Cup, Burnley head back to face 6th placed United in the Premier League. Burnley are 16th as they look to survive for next season. United are continuing to win games under Ole as he looks to make his job permanent in the summer. United should win this game as Burnley might suffer another loss.

Newcastle vs. Man City

17th placed Newcastle face off against 2nd place City in another fight for survival. City should win this game to remain on the coattails of Liverpool while a loss for Newcastle would again damage their chance at survival. 

Southampton vs. Crystal Palace

Southampton are 15th while Palace are 14th as the two teams face off against each other. Southampton have been great in recent weeks while Palace only seem to perform against the top teams. Palace make it tough for themselves against teams outside the top six and this should be an interesting game. 

Liverpool vs. Leicester

Liverpool look to continue their march towards the title with a game against 9th placed Leicester. Leicester are a decent team but considering Liverpool’s form this season this should be another win to their cap. 

Tottenham vs. Watford

Tottenham had a poor week in London and it might not get any better as they travel to 7th placed Watford. Tottenham are threatening to drop into a top four race and another loss is on the cards against an in form Watford side. The only silver lining for Spurs is that Son is back.
