FA Cup and Premier League Predictions and Tips – 16th – 17th April

It’s FA Cup semi-final weekend, with Manchester City and Liverpool clashing swords six days after meeting in the Premier League. There is also a Wembley clash between Chelsea and Palace, while there are also some important top-flight encounters. Tottenham can strengthen their top four claims when going up against Brighton.

FA CUP Predictions – SATURDAY 16TH APRIL

Manchester City 15:30 Liverpool

Manchester City took a swipe at Liverpool last weekend but failed to land the winning punch. Even so, they were the likely winner for much of the contest. We think they can get things right on Saturday, with the Reds having to survive a VAR scare at the Etihad Stadium. The price about Pep Guardiola’s side seems perfectly reasonable.

SUNDAY 17TH APRIL

Chelsea 16:30 Crystal Palace

Chelsea are huge favourites to reach the FA Cup final and their 6-0 demolition of Southampton was a return to form at St Mary’s. The slight negative is that they will have limited preparation time after a Champions League clash at Real Madrid. Perhaps the best way to shoot is a Blues win and both sides finding the net.

Premier League Predictions – SATURDAY 16TH APRIL

Tottenham Hotspur 12:30 Brighton & Hove Albion

What has been especially impressive about Tottenham’s recent resurgence. Is the fact that they are winning matches by large margins. A 4-0 win at Villa Park flattered them although they were clinical when beating Newcastle 5-1. Antonio Conte is certainly having the desired effect and we’re not sure Brighton will get within reach of them despite a surprise 2-1 win at the Emirates.

Manchester United 15:00 Norwich City

Manchester United’s season is fizzling out. To the extent that they might fail to qualify for next season’s Europa League, let alone the Champions League. Therefore, it could be worth punting on Norwich enjoying a two-goal start in this game. The Canaries beat Burnley last weekend and will go to Old Trafford looking to pull off a shock.

Southampton 15:00 Arsenal

Two games ago, Arsenal were in the box seat to secure a top four spot in the Premier League. Although defeats to Crystal Palace and Brighton have set them back severely. Now the Gunners need to pick up wins and will go on the attack at St Mary’s. However, it’s improbable that Southampton won’t score and we’ll therefore go down the BTTS Yes angle.

Watford 15:00 Brentford

Leeds United’s 3-0 win at Vicarage Road has essentially hammered the final nail in Watford’s relegation coffin. It’s hard to see how Roy Hodgson can rally the troops after that reverse and Brentford can take full advantage. Thomas Frank’s side have become one of the form teams in the Premier League and they should be able to win this one in style.

SUNDAY 17TH APRIL

Newcastle United 14:15 Leicester City

After three consecutive defeats on the road, Newcastle stopped the rot with a 1-0 win over Wolves. The Magpies were value for the victory and they might get the better of Leicester on Sunday. The Foxes will have clashed with PSV as recently as Thursday in the Netherlands and this could leave them somewhat jaded at St James’ Park.

West Ham United 14:15 Burnley

Burnley did the hard job of coming from behind to beat Everton before stumbling at Carrow Road. Sean Dyche will want defensive solidity against a tired West Ham side whose Europa League campaign has become the focal point of the season. We’ll aim for Under 2.5 Goals which covers a slender win for either side along with a low-scoring draw.

This weekend will be highly revealing when it comes to the FA Cup and Premier League. We will find out the two teams who will reach the final of the former, while there are some important top-flight issues to be sorted. Tottenham and Arsenal are likely to be popular acca selections although Spurs look the better bet.
