English Premier League 2023 Matchweek 33 – Betting tips & Predictions

EPL 2023 Matchweek 33

Whilst the end of the EPL seasons looms near, the competition thickens as we head into Gameweek 33. It’s the highly anticipated top of the table clash that is sure to have every fan on the edge of their seat, when Manchester City take on Arsenal at the Etihad. The blue side of Merseyside just about remain with a fighting chance for Premier League survival when they take on high-flying Newcastle at Goodison Park and wounded Chelsea with a chance at a late-season resurgence starting off with Brentford at Stamford Bridge. Let’s dive into this Mid-Week action!

Matchweek 33 Fixtures

Wolverhampton Wanderers Vs Crystal Palace

Molineux Stadium, Wednesday 26th April, 4:30am

This mid-table clash is nothing to get too excited about, with both teams almost having Premier League all but secured for next season and sitting in 12th (Crystal Palace) and 13th (Wolves) respectively, expect a relatively timid showing here at the Molineux. In their last fixture at Selhurst Park, Palace came back from 1-0 down at HT to finish the game 2-1 winners. This fixture was the first time since they both met in the Championship back in 2013 that this fixture went over 2.5 goals. You can expect a return to a low scoring fixture, with both sides struggling for goals this season with Wolves (26) and Palace (31) respectively, a weak attacking showing from both sides for this 2022/2023 Premier League season.

Aston Villa Vs Fulham

Villa Park, Wednesday 26th April, 4:45am

Villa Park hosts Fulham this week with Villa hoping to continue their fine run of form under new manager Unai Emery. Since taking over failed manager Steven Gerrard in November, Emery has certainly shown tactical genius to put his Birmingham based side into 6th place, creeping up on Stellini’s Spurs outfit. Fulham on the other hand started this season brilliantly, climbing into the elusive top 6. That was until star man and goal scorer

Aleksandar Mitrović received an 8-match ban for misconduct when he shoved the referee during their FA Cup to against Manchester United. That will mean that Fulham will be reliant on backup forward Carlos Vinicius for goals, and with Premier League secured and not much to play for, expect a bland showing from this Fulham side.

Leeds United Vs Leicester City

Elland Road, Wednesday 26th April, 5am

Leeds will host Leicester at Elland Road in what will be a crucial fixture for both outlets. Leicester is currently sitting in the relegation zone with Leeds just 2 points above the drop zone. Leicester have not won a Premier League game in their last 10 fixtures. Although having scored in 7 of them, it seems that the Foxes defence is in a state of shock, having conceded 55 goals this season. Leeds on the other hand don’t have anything to boast about either, having conceded 54 goals this season, just 1 fewer than their competitor this week. With Leeds scoring goals in their last 6 games consecutively, I see this potentially becoming an out of hand high scoring fixture.

Nottingham Forest Vs Brighton and Hove Albion

City Ground, Thursday 27th April, 4:30am

Nottingham Forest hosts 7th place Brighton this week at the City Ground. Forest boss Steve Cooper will be desperately wanting a result here as they sit just in the drop zone. However, Forest’s form has been more than concerning and without a victory in their last 10 Premier League matches, this will be a tough ask against Roberto De Zerbi’s high-flying Seagulls. A recent and convincing win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will surely support the continued climb of Brighton up the Premier League table. Despite Forest’s cause to survive being seemingly higher than a Seagull push from 7th to 6th, Brighton will be rearing to catch Villa and Spurs who only sit a couple points ahead with 2 games more played.

Chelsea Vs Brentford

Stamford Bridge, Thursday 27th April, 4:45am

Chelsea host Brentford at Stamford Bridge this week, in what should be a tightly contested fixture. Chelsea have been nothing short of abysmal in 2023, having not won a Premier League home game since the 5th of March against a weak Leeds side. Surprisingly, Brentford sit 2 table positions above the West London club despite having not win in their last 5 Premier League games. That form however has come at a poor time to meet the wounded blues, and surely it will be Chelsea at home who start their Premier League resurgence heading into what will be an ambiguous preseason for the club. Whilst Chelsea should grab the 3 points here, expect goals from both teams.

West Ham Vs Liverpool

London Stadium, Thursday 27th April, 4:45am 

Olympic Stadium hosts Liverpool in what should be a fiery contest between two top-heavy teams. West Ham are on the back of a 4-0 whitewash to Bournemouth over the weekend, where they cleaned up their opposition at the Vitality Stadium no less. Meanwhile, at Anfield, Liverpool just about escaped with a narrow 3-2 victory to a resilient Nottingham Forest side. Liverpool have finally picked up some form, winning their last 2 games, and it would be difficult to deny taking them again this week with their odds @1.85 on PlayUp. With Liverpool winning their last 6/7 fixtures against West Ham and scoring at least 2 goals in 5/6 of their last away fixtures against West Ham, it’s hard to ignore Liverpool and over 2.5 goals @2.75 on Bet365.

Manchester City Vs Arsenal

Etihad Stadium, Thursday 27th April, 5:00am

This highly anticipated spectacle kicks off at the Etihad, as this top of the table clash is sure to have viewers on the edge of their seats. It’s safe to say, Man City go into this match firm favourites, having won their last 6 Premier League matches and their last 7 matches against Arsenal in all competitions.  With Arsenal sitting 5 points above Man City with 2 games more played, this becomes a critical fixture for City, with a potentially league defining result. With Arsenal experiencing a recent 3-3 draw to Southampton, a few clouds seem to be creeping over the Emirates and for that, the sensible pick remains with Manchester City @1.55 on Bet365.

Southampton Vs Bournemouth

St Mary’s Stadium, Friday 28th April, 4:45am

Southampton and Bournemouth will face off in an especially crucial game for the Saints. Southampton has not won any of their last seven Premier League matches and has lost their last two home games. On the other hand, Bournemouth has won their last two away games and five of their last 10 Premier League games. Southampton has won their last three games against Bournemouth, and the away team has only won one of the last ten matches between them. In their last match, Southampton secured a point in a 3-3 draw with Arsenal, while Bournemouth took a 4-0 home thumping to West Ham. Bournemouth has a chance to move eight points clear of Everton in 18th place with a win in this match, but Southampton will be the ones likely to secure all 3 points @2.25 on Bet365.

Everton Vs Newcastle

Goodison Park, Friday 28th April, 4:45am

Everton will host Newcastle United at Goodison Park, with hopes of moving out of the relegation zone. Everton has failed to win their last five league matches and remain in the bottom three. With several players such as Coleman, Holgate, Vinagre, and Townsend injured. Abdoulaye Doucoure's return from suspension will be crucial for Sean Dyche’s side. Meanwhile, Newcastle comes into the game with confidence after a 6-1 win against Tottenham. In the past five meetings between Everton and Newcastle, the Magpies have won four times, making them a strong contender in the upcoming match. However, both Emil Krafth and Allan Saint-Maximin are out with injuries for the away team. Expect a closer fixture than perhaps most predict as Everton will need to give their all to ensure they are Premier League bound for the 2023-2024 season, for that reason, take Everton or Draw @2.05 on Bet365.

Tottenham Vs Manchester United

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Friday 28th April, 5:15am 

Spurs host the Red Devils at home in the last fixture of gameweek 33. Man United come to London on the back off an FA Cup advance to the final, as they scraped past Brighton in penalties at Wembley. The home team come back to London after a 6-1 thrashing against Newcastle, when they conceded 4 goals in just 20 minutes. Spurs’ season has been rocky to say the least, with a managerial exit certainly not helping the cause. Manchester United on the other hand, whilst ridden with defensive injuries in Varane and Martinez, have shown drastic signs of improvement under Dutch manager Erik Ten Haag this season. With Spurs’ defence looking nothing short of abysmal right now, take the away side to win here @2.37 on Bet365.
