Chelsea’s trip to Old Trafford among the Gameweek 33 highlights
Chelsea are closing in on the Premier League crown as they bid to regain the title which they surrendered so weakly last season. The Blues travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United, who are of course, now under the guidance of former manager José Mourinho.
Mourinho’s United lost 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in October and were also eliminated by the Blues on the same ground in the FA Cup. The Portuguese will be intent on avoiding a 3rd straight loss and this may turn into a cagey affair.
Tottenham Hotspur will get the chance to cut the lead at the top to just 4 points, when they get the GW33 action under way in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off. Spurs are in impressive form, winning 6 in a row since coming unstuck at Anfield and the latest Premier League goals forecast suggest that they will make it 7 against Bournemouth.
Harry Kane has returned to full fitness but it is the inspirational form of Dele Alli that has been capturing the attention of fantasy football managers.
Bournemouth are in danger of getting themselves dragged into the relegation dogfight and there are a number of sides that will be looking to close the gap on the Cherries this weekend.
Crystal Palace will be looking to make the most of Leicester City’s Champions League distractions, while Hull City and Swansea City will both fancy their chances of picking up some points away from home, when they travel to Stoke City and Watford respectively.
Everton are strong favourites to see off Burnley, with the latest English Premier League betting odds suggesting that they will get the job done, as Romelu Lukaku closes in on the Golden Boot.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping that his Gunners’ side can keep their top-four finish hopes alive by claiming all 3 points, when they travel to the Riverside Stadium for the Monday Night Football.
It promises to be another fascinating week in the English Premier League – can Mourinho and his Manchester United side put a dent in Chelsea’s title aspirations?
