Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Liverpool vs Palace

The final day of the Premier League season is almost here with battles for European qualification going down to the wire.

With Manchester City crowned champions and second place sown up for Manchester United it is down to Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester City to scrap for the remaining two Champions League places.

West Ham, Tottenham and Everton meanwhile are pushing for Europa League spots with Arsenal also still in the reckoning.

As ever, Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk.

Leicester v Tottenham

This is a huge game for Leicester, they still have a slim chance of getting into the top four, but they will need Liverpool to drop points. They just need to focus on doing their own job and getting the three points.

I can see this one being an entertaining game and given what is at stake for Leicester I can see them being quite open, which will leave space for Spurs to attack with their pace. Prediction: 3-3.

Betfair Exchange odds: Leicester 11/10, Draw 100/30, Tottenham 5/2

Wolves v Man United

United will be making plenty of changes to the team with the Europa League final coming up. This match isn’t a priority for them and I expect to see some young players getting an opportunity. Wolves have announced that this will be Nuno’s last game, so I expect that they will want to put on a show for him in front of their own fans to give him a good send off. Prediction 1-1.

Betfair Exchange odds: Wolves 113/8, Draw 14/5, Man United 7/4

West Ham v Southampton

Ahh what has happened to West Ham! They can’t qualify for the Champions League, I was routing for them. I had such high hopes. They can confirm a Europa League place and they will want to end the season on a high so I will back them in this one. Prediction: 3-1.

Betfair Exchange odds: West Ham 4/5, Draw 16/5, Southampton 4/1

Sheffield United v Burnley

How the f**k did Sheffield United beat Everton last time out!? The Premier League is insane, man. It’s Sheffield United’s last game in the Premier League and their home fans will be there to cheer them on so I expect they will give it a good go. But, Burnley aren’t an easy side to beat when they are on the road, so I can see this one being a draw. Prediction: 2-2.

Betfair Exchange odds: Sheff United 2/1, Draw 14/5, Burnley 6/4

Liverpool v Crystal Palace

Overall, it has been a bad season for Liverpool, but in their last few games they have stuck together and played as a team, showing us that their unit is still there. They have gone on a good winning run which has put them in an amazing position to secure Champions League football, which wasn’t looking likely a couple of months ago.

They will be going all out to win this one, but Roy Hodgson is going back to his old club in his final match, so there could be a twist. Prediction: 3-2.

Betfair Exchange odds: Liverpool 2/11, Draw 8/1, Crystal Palace 19/1

Fulham v Newcastle

I’m sad to see my former team drop out of the Premier League, but they have to be positive ahead of the summer and next season, I hope they can finish on a positive note with a win. They will want to go out with a bang and say we’ll be back. They have produced good football but sometimes football is cruel. Prediction: 2-1.

Betfair Exchange odds: Fulham 6/5, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 5/2

Leeds v West Brom

Leeds can be very proud of the season they have had, they have been the hardest working team in the league and it has shown, for a newly promoted side to finish where they are is a great achievement. The will be looking forward to next season already and the fans will be right behind them for this one, so I can only see this match going one way. Prediction: 4-0.

Betfair Exchange odds: Leeds 1/2, Draw 9/2, West Brom 11/2

Arsenal v Brighton

Arsenal got a good win last time out and there is a big chance for them to finish above Spurs and they will be thinking about this for sure. They have a good chance to win this game and put a miserable season behind them. Prediction 2-1.

Betfair Exchange odds: Arsenal 5/8, Draw 7/2, Brighton 9/2

Aston Villa v Chelsea

Aston Villa got a great win against Spurs last time out, but I think Chelsea will be too strong for them here. It’s the last game of the season and I’m sure the Villa boys will have their minds on the beach or the Euros, so they won’t want to risk anything in this one. Chelsea could still slip out of the top four, so they will want to get the job done. Prediction: 1-3.

Betfair Exchange odds: Aston Villa 6/1, Draw 4/1, Chelsea 8/15

Man City v Everton

I’m not sure how City managed to lose last time out, I know they had ten men, but those ten men had enough quality as eleven! I’m sure they will want to finish the season on a win, especially with the Champions League final coming up. Everton have been poor recently too. Prediction: 2-0.

Betfair Exchange odds: Man City 1/2, Draw 9/2, Everton 7/1
