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. Dimitar’s Prediction: 1-2.Betfair Exchange Odds: West Ham- 9/4, Villa- 11/8, Draw- 11/4AdvertisementMORE: Dimitar Berbatov blasts Gareth Bale over Real Madrid bench anticsMORE: Berbatov sends Manchester United warning over Jadon Sancho transferFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page. 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. Dimitar’s Prediction: 5-0.AdvertisementBetfair Exchange Odds: Man City- 1/10, Norwich- 37/1, Draw- 13/1Newcastle vs Liverpool Christian Pulisic has been in sensational form for Chelsea since the restart (Picture: Getty)This is a big game for Chelsea, they won’t want to slip up, it is going to be a tough game for both teams. 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. Dimitar Prediction: 3-3.AdvertisementAdvertisementBetfair Exchange Odds: Chelsea- 10/11, Wolves- 7/2, Draw- 3/1Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Danny Ings is still in contention to win the Premier League Golden Boot (Picture: Getty)Both teams will be happy with how they have done this season and I’m hoping that in this one we will see a pure game of football with lots of attacking. 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.
