There may only be three matches in the Premier League on Sunday but it is another massive day in the division as issues at the top and the bottom continue and in the case of the bottom of the table could even be decided.
The triple header of matches line up one after the other to make up a bumper Super Sunday which should be quite some watch throughout the course of the day. We’ll preview all three and go through them in kick off order.
Crystal Palace vs Hull City
There is everything on the line for Hull City in this match. Swansea’s win over Sunderland on Saturday means that Hull have to win this match else they will effectively be relegated given their worse goal difference. If they do win though they bring Crystal Palace right back into the mix. Palace know if they avoid defeat in the match they will be safe.
This is sure to be a nervy occasion and it might be that the bravest of the two sides are the one which will win the match but whatever happens Hull are going to have to open up at some point given their need to win. Crystal Palace have suddenly started shipping goals having conceded seven in their last two matches. Hull almost have to draw them into a shootout and for me that brings over 2.5 goals into play.
West Ham vs Liverpool
Man City and Arsenal have piled the pressure onto Liverpool in this match. Their wins mean Liverpool have to win their last two to be sure of Champions League football again next season. West Ham are playing for pride but as Tottenham can testify to that means a lot to them.
Had Liverpool not been under pressure to win the match then I might have taken them but they rarely impress me when the pressure is on and I don’t need to have a heart attack watching them win at what are fairly restricted odds. I wouldn’t put anyone off West Ham on the value call but I’ll leave this one alone.
Tottenham vs Man Utd
The final match of the day is the last ever match at White Hart Lane in its current guise as Tottenham host Man Utd. A few weeks ago this looked like it could have everything on it but now in reality it has precious little on it other than Tottenham wanting to end life at the present Lane in style.
I fancy the home side will get the job done here too. They will know they were poor against West Ham last week and will want to put that right and they have the chance to do that against a potentially unmotivated and certainly jaded United side for whom the only match that matters now this season is the Europa League final.
Even had United not played so many matches recently Tottenham would be favoured in this match but with the freedom they can now play with and the class they have I’ll go with them to say adios to the Lane with a win.
