Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Leicester City vs Man Utd

first_img Comment The curtain is finally set to come down on the 2019/20 Premier League season (Pictures: REX/METRO.CO.UK)It has been a memorable Premier League campaign for any number of reasons and we are in store for a fitting finale on Sunday.Liverpool may have wrapped up the title a long time ago, but the scramble for European qualification is set to go to the wire. Manchester United and Leicester City face off in what is effectively a straight shootout at the King Power, while Chelsea must avoid defeat at home against Wolves.At the other end of the table, two of Watford, Aston Villa and Bournemouth will be relegated to The Championship. A day of twists and turns awaits and Betfair Ambassdor Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk…AdvertisementAdvertisementLeicester City v Man Utd Troy Deeney will need to put in a big performance if Watford are to have any hope of surviving (Picture: Getty)I don’t see how Watford will pull off a miracle and survive. I hope they can prove me wrong. I don’t get them sacking their manager when they had two huge games to go, it just makes things so confusing for the players and everybody connected to the team. Arsenal will want to bounce back from that defeat on Tuesday, I think they have something going for them, Arteta knows what he is doing and I think he has a good understanding with the players, in my opinion they will reap the benefits of his appointment in the future. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-0Betfair Exchange Odds: Arsenal- 21/20, Watford- 3/1, Draw- 3/1Burnley vs Brighton Advertisement Liverpool finally got their hands on the Premier League trophy in midweek (Picture: Getty)Now that Liverpool have lifted the trophy and have been crowned champions people may think that they will their high standards slip, but when you’re in that situation all you want to do is win every game. Newcastle will want to finish the season on a high, they have done really well this season and I can see them being a tough opponent for Klopp’s side. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-4.Betfair Exchange Odds: Newcastle- 8/1, Liverpool- 2/5, Draw- 4/1Southampton vs Sheffield United Aston Villa handed themselves a lifeline with their midweek win over Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Aston Villa got a massive win against Arsenal on Tuesday, but the job is far from over. They need another massive performance to make sure they are safe. It’s in Villa’s hands so they need to help themselves, they have some great players and I hope they stay up, they need to be really motivated and can’t make any mistakes.

Nick Pope is still in contention to win the Premier League Golden Gloves award (Picture: Getty)I have been impressed this season with Burnley, they have played some good football at times and I am sure that they will have surprised a lot of people. It’s not been easy for them since the return but I think they have done a good job given the issues they had with some player contracts. Brighton will be delighted with how they have avoided the relegation battle and I see this one turning out to be a draw. Dimitar’s Prediction: 2-2.Betfair Exchange Odds: Burnley- 11/8, Brighton- 9/4, Draw- 5/2Chelsea vs Wolves Advertisement Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham will look to end the season with a fifth win in six games (Picture: Getty)I watched Spurs against Leicester and I think they played some good football and they were strong on the counter attack, which is how they scored their goals. It shows you that when it matters, Mourinho knows how to approach a game and when you have the players like he does at Spurs, then it is easier to implement what you want, especially with the speed of Son and Lucas Moura, as well as the goal scoring instinct of Harry Kane. I can see Spurs winning the final game. Dimitar Prediction: 0-1.Betfair Exchange Odds: Palace- 11/2, Spurs- 4/6, Draw- 10/3Everton vs Bournemouthcenter_img Bournemouth can still survive despite having won just one of their last 12 matches (Picture: Getty)It looks very difficult for Bournemouth, but while there’s still a possibility of survival the players will be fighting for it. When you’re chasing safety it is the worst thing ever, I remember at Bayer Leverkusen we were in a relegation battle the season after reaching the Champions League final, it was so difficult and tense, in the end when we were safe we celebrated like we’d just won the Champions League. So, Bournemouth know that they can only do their job and hope for a miracle. I want to see them fight and produce a good game. Dimitar’s Prediction: 1-2.Betfair Exchange Odds: Everton- 5/4, Bournemouth- 3/1, Draw- 9/4Man City vs Norwich Dimitar BerbatovSaturday 25 Jul 2020 11:06 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link2.8kShares Jamie Vardy represents a major threat to Man Utd’s Champions League hopes (Picture: Getty)Well, this is the big one, it’s a massive game for both teams. The players just need to go out onto the, do their job and win the game. That is easier said than done, you can scream, shout and motivate yourself as much as you like in the dressing room but sometimes the moment you step onto the pitch you s**t your pants. It will be a tense moment because we all know what is on the line, in this case both sets of players will know. The confidence must be there, the United players just need to stay focused and get the job done. It’s difficult for me to predict this one, but I really hope United can get the job done and qualify for the Champions League. Dimitar’s Prediction: 1-2.ADVERTISEMENTBetfair Exchange Odds: Leicester- 9/4, Man Utd- 11/8, Draw- 5/2Arsenal vs Watford Man City legend David Silva plays his final Premier League game on Sunday (Picture: Getty)Norwich aren’t playing for anything and they have been awful the last couple of games. City will want to finish strong and people who want to score goals will look to take that opportunity on Sunday. Their next game after this is against Real Madrid, so they will want to go into that pumped, full of confidence.

Despite Wednesday’s result I think Chelsea will still be confident. Wolves will want to finish the season on a high and they can still achieve a top five finish which would be an amazing achievement. I can see this one being quite entertaining.

Danny Ings is still fighting for the golden boot so he will want to score a few to give himself the best chance to be the league’s top goal scorer. It’s not going to be easy for him to do it but I’m sure he’ll be giving it a try.

Syracuse men’s soccer beats Boston College, 2-0, in physical matchup

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 17, 2016 at 12:19 am Contact Matt: [email protected] Chris Nanco punched the ground and yelled out in frustration. The senior forward went to send a cross into the middle of the box when he was tackled by two Boston College defenders. As he pulled his hand up from the ground, grass flew and his hands rifled high in the air, both knees still planted on the ground.“Where’s the call,” Nanco yelled.Redshirt senior midfielder Liam Callahan and senior midfielder Oyvind Alseth sprinted over to the officials, demanding for a penalty but got nothing in return except a stern warning to go back to playing.“It was a clear foul,” Nanco said. “There was clear contact.”This was the kind of physical play that dominated Friday night’s game at SU Soccer Stadium. The No. 5 Orange (7-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) defeated No. 15 Boston College (4-2, 1-1), 2-0, but the bad blood dates back to last year when Syracuse defeated the Eagles in the NCAA tournament to move to its first College Cup in team history.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth sides traded blows early on, and as the game progressed, tempers began to flare.“These are fun nights,” Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. “These were two teams beating the snot out of each other and that’s what makes our game attractive.”In the 24th minute, freshman forward Johannes Pieles received a yellow card for a hit to the knee of BC’s Zeiko Lewis.Twelve minutes later, Nanco turned off a pass, spun around an Eagles defender and headed straight for the box. He quickly made his way to the edge, ready to send a cross to Kenny Lassiter when he was struck by two BC defenders.“You can’t do that,” yelled a raucous Syracuse crowd.But no call was made as the Orange players erupted in frustration.A Jonathan Hagman goal in the 50th minute only mounted the tension. One minute later a cross was sent Nanco’s way. As he ran toward the goal from the left side, he leapt into the air for the header, but was taken out from underneath by Boston College’s Joshua Forbes. Nanco and Forbes had been battling all night, but this time looked vicious. Forbes came underneath an airborne Nanco, as the SU forward quickly came toppling down on his right shoulder.This time, Nanco slapped both hands on the ground in anger. But just as the first hit, no foul was called. Callahan argued with an official and an Eagles defender.“All they were trying to do was get fouls and slow the game down,” Alseth said.In the 76th minute, Callahan took a shoulder and elbow to the back as he went up for a header. Callahan laid on the ground for several minutes as the official pulled a red card on BC freshman defender Younes Boudadi. A warning followed to Forbes who punched the ground following Boudadi’s ejection.SU was quick to respond with a hit of its own though. Less than a minute later, Boston College’s Fintan Devlin rose up for a header. He was met by a surging John-Austin Ricks who sent Devlin tumbling to the ground and out of the game. After a few minutes on the ground with assistance from a trainer, Devlin walked off under his own power, but kept a hand on his face and forehead.About 10 minutes later, Callahan was the victim of a nasty slide tackle that again resulted in a no-call. Players from both sides quickly began surrounding the officials following the tackle.“Don’t get involved, Liam” McIntyre yelled from the sidelines. “Go be a senior, Louis.”Senior defender Louis Cross and Callahan turned to McIntyre with their arms raised.“I didn’t do anything, coach,” Callahan yelled.When the final three minutes came around, Nanco stole the ball from an Eagles defender and booted it over the fence surrounding the field. He turned around and stared down the line of the Boston College bench, the final stare down in a game full of them.“There’s no doubt they’ll be another chapter,” McIntyre said. “We’ve had some really good battles with Boston College in the last few years. This is what makes rivalries and these are the intense battles that you want to be in.” Commentslast_img read more

Darren Sammy in Steve Smith’s defence: ‘Don’t kick a man when he is down’

first_imgFormer West Indies captain Darren Sammy said Steve Smith “looks ready” for return to action ahead of the start of the Global T20 Canada league on Wednesday. Sammy-led Toronto Nationals take on Vancouver Knights in the first match of the T20 tournament.Smith’s career was thrown into turmoil in March for his role in a ball-tampering scandal that took place in South Africa and earned the former Australia captain a 12-month ban from national and state teams.The suspension, however, does not extend to domestic tournaments outside his home nation so the 29-year-old Smith will be on the field for the Toronto Nationals on Thursday for the opening game of the inaugural Global T20 Canada event.”I’ve spoken to him as to the role I would love for him to play on the team. As to what’s going on in his mind I think only Jesus could tell you what is going on in his mind,” Toronto captain Sammy told a news conference. “But he looks ready.”Darren Sammy thrilled to team up with Steve Smith at Global Canada T20The game will be Smith’s first since he, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were banned by Cricket Australia for conspiring to scuff up the ball with sandpaper during the third test against South Africa.Smith was not made available to the media in the lead-up to the tournament but Sammy had nothing but praise for his new teammate.”So far he has been brilliant for the guys, especially the batsmen,” said Sammy.advertisement”They might not be able to copy what he does in terms of experience and batting situations and the process in which he prepares for a match, but it’s good to see how he goes about his business and good to learn from for the youngsters.”Smith apologised for the ball-tampering incident at a news conference during which he broke down several times and now Sammy feels it is time for everyone to move on from the incident that shook the cricket world.”Look, we all know what he’s done on the cricket field as a batsman,” said Sammy.”As a Christian when you commit sins there are punishments for your sins. It doesn’t mean everything is OK, but there is always forgiveness after you’ve committed your sins and you paid the price. And you move on.”We’ve done that. He missed out on (Indian Premier League), all that stuff. At the end of the day life goes on.”The 22-match tournament begins on Thursday just north of Toronto and concludes on July 15.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
