Tottenham vs Man Utd
I think Tottenham need to win here more than Man Utd. I don’t think, I know. Man Utd are perfect but have been confirmed by the top four finishers as they hold a nine-point gap over Chelsea in 5th place with just 24 points to play.
If Tottenham fail to win the game, they will not end up chasing West Ham, they may have Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton at home. I just can’t see them dropping points all four of their teams in their last 7 games, so a defeat in particular, could be the end of their top 4 hopes.
The good news for Spurs however is that Harry Kane looks set to shoot all the cylinders and Son has made a comeback against Newcastle, coming on in the second half. If Bale comes to this game again, Tottenham have a chance. Their home form is excellent, they have won their last 5 and lost only to Chelsea and Liverpool recently.
The match comes just days after United traveled to Spain to play Granada in the Europa League QF. They won 2-0, but did not play well and there will be little concern for Marcus Rashford's strength as he comes injured in the second game in a row. The importance of Fernand is always talked about, but if Rashford doesn't qualify, United are fighting in some way. Luke Shaw was also replaced, but that was a more cautious approach than anything else I believe.
Tottenham have to be ready for this game because losing is not an option if they want Champions League football next season. Add to that the fact that United will see drawing as a positive result, the value seems small for Tottenham to me.
Westham vs Leicester
The atmosphere of the table is asking for heat, as many teams are in with a chance of capturing the remaining three places to exit the Champions League. Sure these two are in their midst, and they will definitely try to take the other three into this upcoming clash.
Having ways to be dangerous to each other, a high number of goals seem to exist in my eyes, just because there is no reason for one side to come close to this conflict choosing to defend themselves, giving us the right amount.
Monaco vs Dijon
Monaco just can't miss an opportunity like this to get three easy points. The situation at the table puts the need for victory in front of them, and the way Dijon looks, that should be a big problem. Moreover, the goals seem realistic and, as managers are more than capable of being dangerous on a number of occasions, while I also don’t see visitors doing anything.
Valladolid vs Granada
The game is going to be a lot easier on both sides compared to the previous clash, and although their play may not be at the required level, they should be able to pull it off as much as possible.
Granada will certainly want the much-needed victory to boost its character, but exactly the same thing can be said of Valladolid. I don’t see a clean sheet in this game, as both sides are in serious danger at the back, while their offense has the potential to compensate for the disability mentioned earlier.
