EVERTON vs BOURNEMOUTH – Goodison Park
The Toffees are under a lot of pressure here as they have to win if they are to ensure they will be in the EPL next season.
They have only won once in their last 12 league games and now have to avoid defeat against the Cherries.
Bournemouth were 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture last year but come into the game on a 3-match losing streak.
Sean Dyche is tasked with keeping the Blue side of Liverpool in the top flight after his 10-year stint as Burnley manager.
Everton have scored 9 goals in their last 5 matches, while Bournemouth have only kept one clean sheet in that run.
With what’s at stake for the hosts, they are tipped as favorites to win on the day.
LEEDS UNITED vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR – Elland Road
There are plenty of variables lying on Leeds being part of the English Premier League next season.
They are currently in 19th place with 31 points, level with Leicester and have to win here and hope that Everton do not.
The first leg was a seven-goal thriller as Tottenham edged Leeds 4-3.
It has been 8 games since Leeds got a win, a 2-1 victory against Nottingham Forest, and the pressure is on.
Sam Allardyce took charge of Leeds in the hope to save them from relegation and this is a must win for the hosts.
Spurs have lost 3 games in their last 5 and have been very unconvincing, a saving grace for Leeds.
Despite the pressure being on the home team to win, a draw could be the best outcome for them.
LEICESTER CITY vs WEST HAM – King Power Stadium
A few years after shocking the world by winning the English Premier League, Leicester are on the verge of relegation.
The Foxes have one win in 10 games, leaving them in 18th place with 31 points.
They have the chance to complete the double over West Ham, who they beat 2-0 in the reverse fixture.
That was one of the 8 wins that Leicester have managed this season, their worst ever in their entire stay in the top flight.
The Hammers have won 4 out of their last 5 games and this will not be an easy outing for the desperate Foxes.
It’s do or die for Leicester City and they are tipped as favorites to win this game.
