This weekend we’ll guide you through the best bets for Premier League matches. Two-time FA Cup winner and BonusCodeBets ambassador John Barnes – has given us his predictions to help you win big this weekend.
Leicester v Crystal Palace
Leicester may appear to be on a run of bad form being winless in five matches, but four of those opponents sit in the top seven of the league. Crystal Palace are in 13th place but only remain three points clear of relegation despite being five places above the drop zone.
Pressure appears to be on Claude Puel despite being just one point of 9th place. Defeat for the Foxes could seal his fate but after a run of tough games and they’ll be glad to welcome Crystal Palace to the Kingpower Stadium this weekend.
Crystal Palace are trudging along in mid-table but the Eagles can’t assume they’re safe from relegation just yet. Wilfried Zaha is integral to the side and his form will have a big say on where Palace finish this season.
John Barnes’ tip: Leicester 2-2 Crystal Palace
The BonusCodeBets ambassador expects the spoils to be shared.
Manchester United v Liverpool
Manchester United bounced back from their defeat by Paris Saint Germain with a brilliant win over Chelsea in the FA Cup while Liverpool go into this following a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions league.
United won’t need much motivating to win here as a win could potentially prevent their biggest rivals from winning the league. Aside from the defeat by PSG, the Red Devils have been in incredible form and the resurgence of Paul Pogba has been a key factor in their upsurge. He’ll play a huge part in this game and the Liverpool players will need to keep him quiet if they’re to win.
After a tough game in midweek against Bayern Munich, things don’t get much easier for Jurgen Klopp and his men as they come up against the most in-form side in the Premier League since the turn of the year. Their last win at Old Trafford came in 2014 but since then, this Liverpool side have improved drastically so they’ll go into this match fancying their chances.
John Barnes’ tip: Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool
The BonusCodeBets ambassador thinks the game will finish all square.
Chelsea v Manchester City
Chelsea and Manchester City battle it out for silverware at Wembley this weekend, with the Citizens bidding to become the first English club to retain the trophy since Manchester United in 2010.
Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea arrive following a less than emphatic win in the Europa League against Malmo, but there is huge pressure on Sarri to deliver domestically and defeat here could see him lose his job.
Having recently been in the mix for four trophies this season, the last two weeks has seen Sarri’s side drop out the top four and crash out of the FA Cup, so a defeat on Sunday may be the final straw for the Italian manager. Their recent 6-0 defeat by City won’t give the Blues much hope going into this match but they can take confidence having won four out of the last five finals.
City go in search of their first trophy out of a possible four with their ambition to win an unprecedented quadruple firmly on. With the exception of a penalty shoot-out victory against Leicester, the Citizens have cruised through each stage of this year’s campaign including a 10-0 aggregate win over Burton Albion in the semi-final. Chelsea will be a stern test for Pep Guardiola’s men but confidence is soaring at the moment and they’ll go in favourites here.
John Barnes’ tip: Chelsea 0-2 Man City
The BonusCodeBets ambassador expects Manchester City to come out victorious.
