Chelsea have been designated as the home side for the London derby clash. The Blues have enjoyed a successful campaign, finishing in the Champions League spots in the Premier League, while making it to the final of this competition.

Despite the good campaign, the final could be Blues’ boss Maurizio Sarri’s final game in charge, as speculation mounts that he could be Juventus’ next boss.

On Sunday afternoon, Burnley host Arsenal at Turf Moor in the final game of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Burnley have endured a rollercoaster of a campaign. Sean Dyche’s team struggled for results at the beginning of the season, but have since moved away from the relegation zone and secured safety with relative comfort.

The Clarets have failed to win in their last three top-flight games, last time out suffering a 2-0 defeat at in-form Everton. The defeat followed on from a draw at Chelsea and a home defeat by Manchester City, so their recent fixtures have been difficult.

On Thursday night, Valencia host Arsenal at the Mestalla in the Europa League semi-final second leg, with the Gunners 3-1 up from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Valencia head into this clash on the back of three defeats in their last four games in all competitions. However, Los Ches ended a three-game losing streak by hammering struggling Huesca 6-2 last time out.

Despite their recent struggles, Valencia have a good recent record in the Europa League. In fact, the first leg defeat at the Emirates Stadium ended a seven-game unbeaten run in the competition, consisting of six wins and a draw.

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Brighton at the Emirates Stadium, in potentially a vital Premier League clash for both teams.

Arsenal head into this clash on the back of a 3-1 win over Valencia in the Europa League semi-final first leg. However, prior to their clash with Los Ches, the Gunners had suffered three straight defeats in the Premier League. The poor run of form has left Unai Emery’s team fifth-place in the top-flight table, two points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

The Gunners have conceded at least twice in those aforementioned top-flight defeats too, including in a 3-2 defeat against Crystal Palace in their last home league outing.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Valencia at the Emirates Stadium, in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

The Gunners head into Thursday’s clash on the back of a three-game losing run in all competitions while conceding at least three goals in all three defeats. Last time out, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat at Leicester City.

Despite the Gunners poor recent run of results, the team from north London have won their last three Europa League games, while also keeping three straight clean sheets. In fact, Unai Emery’s team has kept clean sheets in nine of their last 11 matches in the Europa League.

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal travels to the Midlands to face Leicester at the King Power Stadium in a potentially vital game for the Gunners.

Leicester’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent, as the Foxes have taken just one point from games with Newcastle and last time out. Brendan Rodgers side had won their previous four league matches to keep themselves in with a chance of finishing in seventh place.

As it stands the Foxes are tenth-place in the table, three points off seventh place, which may be enough to secure Europa League qualification for next season.

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travels to Molineux to face Wolves, as the Gunners look to enhance to their chances of securing a Champions League spot for next season.

Wolves have hit a slight slump in form of late in the Premier League. The side from the Midlands are currently tenth-place in the table after just one win in their last five league games. Last time out, struggling Brighton held Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to a goalless draw.

The side from the Midlands have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games of late in the top-flight, with seven of their last nine league games producing under 2.5 goals.

Arsenal v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview 0

Posted on April 20, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to attempt to consolidate their position in the Premier League’s top four this season.

Arsenal heads into the game on the back of a 1-0 win at Napoli in the Europa League quarter-final second leg that saw the north London side make it through to the last four of the competition.

The win means that Unai Emery’s team has now won six of their last seven matches in all competitions. The fact that the Gunners have conceded just once in seven games has also played a big part in the recent improvement in results.

On Thursday night, Arsenal visits Napoli’s San Paolo in the Europa League quarter-final second leg. The Gunners hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg at the Emirates Stadium.

Napoli’s recent form has been unconvincing at home and abroad. Carlo Ancelotti’s team ended a three-game winless run in all competitions by recording a 3-1 win at Chievo.

The home sides recent record in the Europa League is not great, as they have suffered defeats against Salzburg and of course Arsenal in the first leg. However, prior to the defeats, the Italian side had recorded four straight European victories.

Watford are currently tenth place in the Premier League table. However, they have two games in hand on some of their rivals for seventh spot. A victory would move the Hornets up to seventh place.

The home side’s recent Premier League form has been inconsistent. In fact, Javi Garcia’s team has won two and lost three of their last five league outings. However, those three defeats were at Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.
