|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Chelsea||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Man United have the most away draws (seven) in the Premier League
Expert Verdict: Manchester United have improved dramatically in recent weeks and they can take a point off Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, particularly as a point won't be considered a bad result by the leaders either. It’s Jose Mourinho's pragmatism that has led Chelsea to five draws in nine meetings with top-seven rivals already this season.
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at all venues||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Olivier Giroud has scored eight times in his last ten games
Expert Verdict: Arsenal’s surge may just have come too late for them to contest the league title but it does ensure they’re in superb shape to defend their FA Cup crown and Olivier Giroud, who has been bang in form since returning from injury, is the man most likely to set Arsenal on their way in this semi-final against Reading.
Recommendation: O Giroud first goalscorer
REFEREE: Martin Atkinson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Wolves||Recent Form|
Key Stat: 15 of Wolves’ last 16 games have contained at least two goals
Expert Verdict: Successive away defeats have left Wolves fighting desperately for a Championship playoff place, but they have collected five wins and a draw in their last six matches at Molineux so this should be a good opportunity for three priceless points. Ipswich are in the mix as well, but they have lost six of their last eight games on the road.
REFEREE: Stuart Attwell STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at C Palace||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Brom have conceded ten goals in their last three matches
Expert Verdict: Crystal Palace have gone from strength to strength under Alan Pardew and they can continue their impressive run when West Brom visit Selhurst Park. The Baggies have won just one of their last six matches and conceded seven goals against lowly QPR and Leicester recently.
Recommendation: Crystal Palace
REFEREE: Jonathan Moss STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Leicester||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Swansea have scored in eight of their last ten matches
Expert Verdict: Having previous looked set for a quick return to the Championship, consecutive victories have suddenly given Leicester a realistic chance of beating the drop. Nigel Pearson’s Foxes have sacrificed security for an open style, with their last three games containing 15 goals and another open encounter looks likely.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Lee Probert STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Everton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Everton have been ahead at half-time in each of their last three league wins
Expert Verdict: Everton’s revival may have come too late in the season for them to make anything of it, but it could cause Burnley some real damage. Everton have won three of their last four games and Burnley’s road record offers little hope – one away win all season and seven defeats in their last ten.
Recommendation: Everton-Everton double result
