Elche vs Villarreal
Villarreal will look to move closer to the Champions League berth when they take on Elche at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero on Sunday. The Yellow Submarine have been in a fine form of late, with the team scoring goals for fun in all competitions. Even though all Alcacer, Coquelin, and Pena have been struggling with injuries of late, away win should be considered. Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone.
Despite the fact that both Gonzales and Fidel are back from suspension, we are tempted to put our money Villarreal, who have found their best form in recent weeks. In the first half of the season Villarreal crushed Elche 4-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Gerard Moreno should continue to lead the line for the visitors despite failing to convert a penalty in the draw with Diego Simeone’s troops.
Liverpool vs Brentford
Liverpool will be aiming to keep their Premier League hopes alive when they host Brentford to their Anfield on Matchday 22. The Reds head into the match with a severely-weakened squad as all Salah, Mane, and Keita are on international duty. Jurgen Klopp, though, still has a number of high-profile players to choose from, and we predict that Diogo Jota and Co. are going to prove their worth on the field.
The Bees, on the other hand, are on the right track to secure the Premier League survival, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Since Liverpool want this win more than Brentford, we predict that the visitors are going to return to London empty-handed. The likes of Fosu-Henry, Dasilva, and Goode are sidelined with injuries, while Zanka represents Gambia at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations
West Ham vs Leeds United
the two teams face each other at Olympic Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Whites did well to beat Burnley at home in their last league fixture, but given their anything but good away record, we are not tempted to put our money on the visiting side this time out. Raphinha is widely expected to return to the starting XI, but Phillips, Rodrigo, and Cresswell remain in the recovery room.
Both Llorente and Roberts are sidelined through suspension, while Patrick Bamford has overcome his injury. The Hammers, on the other hand, continue to rely on key attacker Michail Antonio, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. Even though midfielder Said Benrahma is on international duty with Algeria, home win should be considered as David Moyes’ troops have turned their Olympic Stadium into a real fortress.
