Stoke to suffer more frustration


Although events at Wembley may take some of the attention away from Sunday’s Premier League fixtures, there are still three exciting games to go at.

Of the two early matches, the one that has the most riding on it is Stoke City’s home clash with Burnley.

The Potters look in big trouble, not winning since January, and it could be said that their performances have not garnered the results they deserve.

While Stoke are floundering, Burnley are a club on the up and will be keen to bounce back from Thursday’s defeat to Chelsea.

Ironically, a win for the Blues in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Southampton will all but seal the Clarets’ place in Europe for next season.

There have been under 2.5 goals in 13 of the last 15 meetings between these sides, and it looks set to be a tight one and the draw could be the answer at 9/4.

The other game promises to be an emotional affair as it will be Arsenal’s first game since Arsene Wenger confirmed he will leave in the summer.

While they have yet to earn a point on the road in 2018, the Gunners have collected 75.9% of their points at home and face a resurgent West Ham side.

The Hammers are seven points clear of the bottom three but have not scored in their last three trips to the Emirates.

A home win to zero is 37/20, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is 12/5 to score first.

Finally, Manchester City’s hopes for a record Premier League points tally should be boosted when Swansea come to town.

The Citizens have been confirmed as champions and now have five games to collect the eight points required to eclipse the benchmark Chelsea set in 2004/05 of 95.

Carlos Carvalhal’s men will not roll over, with themselves hoping for the points in their battle against the drop and having lost their last trips to the Etihad 2-1, will be banking on some complacency from Pep Guardiola’s men.

However, that is unlikely and 20/33 for a home win to zero perhaps demonstrates the gulf in class so look to the goal markets instead.

Sergio Aguero’s knee injury means Gabriel Jesus will lead the line and having netted twice in this fixture last term, is 31/20 to score two or more, while over 3.5 goals in the game is 1/1.
