Just four weeks of the EPL season to go, but still enough time for our EPL Matchday 35 Predictions.
Whilst it looks likely that the title will be going to Chelsea and Spurs second, and down the other end the last two will be joining sport’s most mediocre team Ipswich Town in the Championship, that doesn’t mean it is still not exciting. Plus there’s the small deal of the remaining two Top 4 spots and last relegation place.
The FTA game for Australia will likely officially confirm one team’s demise as Bournemouth take on Bournemouth.
But there are plenty of good games throughout EPL Matchday 35. Everton, who are like the childless uncle (amusing to most but never taken too seriously) play Chelsea who need to keep winning to keep Spurs from sneaking the title. Talking of Spurs they play their most fierce rival Arsenal and can deliver their biggest f*** you to the Gunners in many a year.
Time to get on with our EPL Matchday 35 Predictions now though.
Each week we put our tips up against an opponent, just like Lawro’s tips on the BBC Football website. But instead of having famous comedian and musicians we’ve never heard of, we put our tips up against a different type of opponent.
We determine tips based on some ridiculous premise or statistic, and we then see if arse truly beat class.
And with 4 rounds left, we are really running out of ideas for a tipping opponent that is different and different from one we’ve used.
Not that we’ve given up, but we almost have. This week’s opponent is based on whether we received a red, amber or green light on our morning peak hour commute whilst doing our EPL Matchday 35 Predictions form study.
How does it work? Easy.
If the light was green, we tipped the home side. If it was red, then the away team gets the tip. In between in Amber means a draw. Thankfully the journey passed through exactly 10 traffic lights. How convenient.
