Premier League Final Day Sunday 24th May
After nine months of exhilarating drama, just one set of fixtures remains in this years Premier League campaign. On a brighter note, it should be a cracking final day of action.
All 20 teams take to the field at 3PM and we’re anticipating thrills and spills aplenty, especially in the race for survival. Hopefully it’ll be another chance for us to bash the bookies with this 7/1 treble.
Here are our final day betting selections. Good luck!
Arsenal V West Bromwich Albion
The amazing work of Tony Pulis since joining Albion was underlined emphatically with a stunning 3-0 victory over champions Chelsea last Monday night but we can see the Baggies being brushed aside by a Gunners side that’ll be eager to rebuild some confidence ahead of next week’s FA Cup final.
Arsene Wenger’s men have enjoyed a relatively productive season and can confirm a third-placed finish with three points at the Emirates. However, they will be disappointed by a recent lack of form, which is emphasised by three consecutive blanks at home.
Quite simply, we cannot see the Gunners going another 45 minutes without a goal, especially against a Baggies side that has won just four of 18 away ganes this term. With Oliver Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott all determined to get amongst the goals, it could be a long afternoon for the visitors.
The Gunners have won each of the past three home head-to-head meetings with minimal fuss. We’re backing them to navigate this final day clash with consummate ease.

Chelsea V Sunderland
Stamford Bridge is set for a huge party on Sunday as the champions host a Sunderland side that confirmed their survival thanks to Wednesday night’s heroics at Arsenal.
Dick Advocaat has worked remarkably well to keep the Black Cats alive, but his side can now relax and are unlikely to cause Chelsea any major problems at Stamford Bridge. In truth, Sunderland looked very inaffective in the attacking third against the Gunners on Monday, and we would expect that theme to continue here.
Moreover, Jose Mourinho will demand better defensive solidarity after that shocking display at West Brom. At the other end, we’d be very surprised if they don’t at least grab one goal to get the celebration started in style.
Chelsea have been the Premier League’s best side by a considerable distance in 2014/15. Expect that to show against the Black Cats.

Newcastle United V West Ham United
The last major issue to be resolved regards the final relegation spot as Newcastle United and Hull City enter the final day fearing the worst. However, the advantage lies with the Magpies and we’re fully expecting them to confirm their survival with a win against West Ham United.
Newcastle might be on a nine-game losing streak but they couldn’t ask for a better final day fixture than the Hammers at home. The visitors have been awful in 2015 and, in truth, their players have been mentally on the beach for several weeks now. With manager Sam Allardyce set for a summer exit too, it’s hard to see West Ham getting themselves up for this challenge.
Big Sam would of course love to relegate Newcastle after a horrid spell at St James’ Park but the impetus is solely with John Carver’s men. The Magpies showed improvement against QPR last weekend and should fancy their chances here.
The home crowd could be important here. Expect the Geordie Army to spur their side to survival.
