Some big matches this week in the Premier League. A struggling Chelsea host an injury-ravaged Tottenham in a match with real Champions League ramifications. And FFP violating Manchester City travel to Leicester in a battle for who will finish 30 points adrift of Liverpool.
With fifth place potentially earning UCL qualification, teams like Sheffield United and Wolves need to handle their business against bottom-dwellers if they want their shot at European glory.

Odds & Ends
- Chelsea are going to have to start winning again at some point, right? The injury to Son is a huge blow to Spurs. However, this feels like a match Mouriho dirties it up and ends in a 2-2 draw.
- Leicester just aren’t humming like they were earlier in the season. And this is City’s first match after getting walloped with a two year Champions League ban. It’s a really hard game to peg. Neither side can afford to drop any points. Yet, they both will. 1-1 draw.
- Wolves -195 is the easiest money all weekend.
- You’re not fooling anyone, Arsenal. You’re still not good. Everton travels to the Emirates and gets a 2-1 win.
