Burnley and WBA go head to head at Turf Moor in what will be a relegation six-pointer. The Clarets are six points clear of bottom three ahead of Matchday 25, meaning that a win over WBA will see them move one step closer securing the Premier League survival. Mee remains in the recovery room, while Taylor and Wood should be fit to face the Baggies.
Sam Allardyce’s men, on the other hand, did well to hold star-studded Man Utd to a draw in their last league match. WBA are eager to keep their survival hopes alive, but beating Burnley at Turf Moor is easier said than done. The Clarets are more of a team than the Baggies, and I predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. Diangana is likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
There will be fireworks when Fulham and Sheffield United face each other at Craven Cottage in the relegation six-pointer on Saturday evening. The Cottagers picked up vital three points from the Goodison Park clash, with the team shocking Everton on Matchday 24, but the capital club need to keep on impressing in the remainder of the season if they are to secure the Premier League survival.
Midfielder Tom Cairney should be the only absentee in the home team. The Blades, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to West Ham, and seeing that they are low on confidence ahead of the trip to London, home win should be considered. Fleck should be fit to face the Cottagers, while Berge, O’Connell, Robinson, and Egan remain sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
Elche and Eibar go head to head at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero in the La Liga round 24. Los Franjiverdes do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team eyeing their first league win since October 23, 2020. Elche are three points behind the safe zone ahead of the visit of Eibar, and I am positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown. Both Josan and Mojica suffered injuries in the 3-1 loss to Celta, and the duo is unlikely to feature against Eibar.
Fidel and Nino remain in the recovery room. Los Armeros, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their six-game winless run in La Liga. Since the visitors are likely to go for a win in the relegation six-pointer as well, I am tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Correa and Rodrigues should be the only absentees in the away team.
