Premier League 2018/19 - Five bold predictions for final matchday
This Sunday, the 2018/19 season in the Premier League draws to a close. And how. We still don’t have a clear winner yet. Manchester City and Liverpool are separated by only a point, and despite the odds, this could go any way.
A season widely touted to be one of the greatest in the league’s history, is set to culminate in a similarly spectacular fashion as all eyes will be tracking each and every moment in the games involving these sides.
But there’s more to the final matchday of the league than what meets the eye. And now, let’s look into our crystal balls and make a few predictions ahead of the last kick-off in the Premier League this season.
#5 Tottenham Hotspur versus Everton will be a cracker
The Lillywhites are flying high after securing a place in a Champions League final for the very time in the club’s history, whereas the Toffees have pulled off a series of big victories in the last few games.
Expect this fixture to produce fireworks.
Spurs have although achieved a top four finish - Arsenal would have to win by more than eight goals against Burnley and hope Tottenham lose to Everton to finish fourth - Mauricio Pochettino would be aiming to celebrate a Champions League final place with a win and end the Premier League season on a positive note. However, it’s easier said than done.
Everton have won five of their last seven games, including some big scalps such as Arsenal, Chelsea and the 4-0 battering of Manchester United along the way, and losing just once. This has propelled the Merseysiders from 11th upto 8th currently and would want to avoid slipping behind again.
No matter who takes the cake here, expect the match to produce at least five or six goals in a thrilling goalfest.
