English Premier League predictions, fixtures and results: 4 – 6 May 2024

We’re into the final month of the English Premier League season, with the battle firmly on at both ends of the table this weekend.

Two horses remain in the EPL title race and they bookend five Saturday fixtures.

It’s advantage Manchester City, who have a precious game in hand and a home assignment against Wolves in the late Saturday kick off.

Boss Pep Guardiola is eyeing up yet another title ahead of the Etihad Stadium contest, with the visitors having little more than pride to play for.

And they will know the size of their immediate task before kicking a ball, with league leaders Arsenal up first in the lunchtime game and with a chance to extend their advantage to four points.

The Gunners host tricky customers Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium, with the Cherries winning their last two as they edge towards the dizzy heights of a top half finish.

Sunday sees a trio of EPL matches packed with intensity.

Liverpool and Tottenham go toe-to-toe in an Anfield blockbuster that could have major consequences for both teams.

The Reds’ title hopes are hanging by a thread ahead of boss Jurgen Klopp’s summer exit, while Spurs have lost three in a row to put themselves firmly on the back foot in the race to finish fourth and secure Uefa Champions League qualification for next term.

There’s a London derby to be had, too, as improving Chelsea go up against old foes West Ham.

The Hammers’ continental push has fizzled out in recent weeks, so much so that they’ve even dipped below the Blues in the Premier League standings ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Aston Villa, meanwhile, will take a huge step towards Champions League qualification if they can come away from Brighton with all three points.

Unai Emery has led a superb campaign so far, with only a game in hand for stuttering Tottenham in fifth causing them to lose any sleep.

Monday night football rounds off the long weekend of action, as Manchester United go to Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils are four unbeaten but have coughed up points in three of those games, while Palace have really picked up in recent weeks as they adapt to the style of coach Oliver Glasner.

It all begins on Friday night with a basement battle, when Luton welcome Everton to Kenilworth Road.

The Hatters need a victory to escape the relegation zone, at least temporarily, and will fancy their chances just that smidge more now that their visitors’ Premier League survival has been confirmed.

Throwing the counter-punch on Saturday will be Nottingham Forest, who really do need to pick up something from their visit to rock bottom Sheffield United.

A run of four games without a win, not to mention a points deduction, has come at precisely the wrong time for a club that has rather lost its composure across the board in recent weeks.

Burnley are suddenly hot on the heels of Luton and Forest above them, taking five points from the last nine.

They welcome Newcastle across the Pennines to Turf Moor for another installment in their great escape series under Vincent Kompany, with the Toon Army still targeting a sixth-placed finish.

A more sedate London derby completes the set, with Brentford and Fulham meeting in the west of the capital.

The Bees are safe in the top flight for another season and can coast to the finish line, while the visitors have tailed off after their eye-catching first half of the campaign.
