EPL Adda Notes: Numbers to help you ace matchweek 38

This Ad is not available for you.

The English Premier League title might have been won but the season is far from over, especially with as many as four of the so-called “top six” yet to know their fate for the upcoming season.

While Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester City fight for the last two places of the UEFA Champions League spot, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton are still hopeful of clinching a place in the UEFA Europa League next season.

Not only that, but the recent string of results over the past few matchweeks have ensured that Arsenal FC also have an outside chance of clinching a UEFA Conference League place on the last day of the English Premier League 2020-21 season.

Here, we look at the numbers that could help you predict the outcomes with some tricky fixtures coming up.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur

Perhaps the most intense fixture of the ultimate EPL 2020-21 matchweek, Leicester City will have everything at stake when they host Spurs on Sunday, May 23. While the Foxes have won the FA Cup to ensure a UEL spot next season, they are still very much in the mix for a coveted UCL spot as well.

Brendan Rodgers' men take on an inconsistent Tottenham side who come to the match at the back of a defeat against Aston Villa at home. However, given how Leicester vs Spurs have fared so far, choosing a favourites becomes a tricky job.

Arsenal vs Brighton

The Gunners come to this match with four league wins on the trot - a feat they have achieved for the first time this season. However, the north London club hasn't had a great record against their next opponent, Brighton.

While Arsenal have momentum on their side, Brighton come to this fixture on the back of a mammoth 3-2 win over Manchester City and enjoy a better head-to-head against Arsenal as well. Having played away at Arsenal only thrice so far, Brighton will look to take inspiration from their encouraging record.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa

Chelsea are on the cusp of both absolute glory and terrible disappointment at the moment. On one hand, the Blues have reached the UCL final where they face Manchester City, and on the other hand, they run the risk of missing out on a top-four spot this season as well. Having lost the FA Cup to Leicester last week, Chelsea are running low on confidence and an in-form Aston Villa side could make their season worse.

However, the Blues have a superior head-to-head and home record against the Villans and a comfortable win should be on the cards.

Manchester City vs Everton

After dropping points against Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Brighton, Everton are now on the verge of missing out on European football despite a strong start to their season. 

They face league champions Manchester City next, a side who have dominated proceedings against the Toffees of late. To make things worse for Carlo Ancelotti, Everton are winless in their last five visits to the Etihad Stadium.
