Premier League Matchday 30 Preview: Big Weekend for Title Hopefuls

The Premier League season rumbles on this weekend with some intriguing matches scheduled to take place at both ends of the table.

Title challengers Arsenal and Manchester City are both on the road and will be eager to avoid slipping up against potentially tricky opponents.

There are also several key games taking place involving teams battling against relegation, setting up what should be an enthralling weekend of action.

Read on as we take a look at the standout games on Matchday 30 and assess some of the key betting angles to consider.


  • Title contenders hit the road
  • Villa eyeing unlikely top six finish
  • Elland Road set for crucial contest

Title Hopefuls Face Tough Away Trips

Arsenal head into the weekend with an eight-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table, but the latter side have a game in hand.

The two teams are scheduled to meet at the Etihad Stadium later this month in what could be the pivotal game in this season’s title race.

They both face tricky away games this weekend, with Arsenal visiting Liverpool and Man City heading to the south coast to take on Southampton.

Plenty of punters will be using the best betting offers to back the pair in a double, but victories for either side are not a foregone conclusion.

Liverpool desperately need a win to boost their hopes of qualifying for Europe, while Southampton beat Man City in the Carabao Cup in January.

Villa Bid to Continue Resurgence Under Emery

Aston Villa looked prime candidates for relegation under previous manager Steven Gerrard, with his lack of tactical acumen brutally exposed during the early part of the season.

Appointing Unai Emery to replace Gerrard has proved to be an inspired decision, with the Spaniard overseeing a remarkable transformation in Villa’s fortunes.

They are now seventh in the table and in with a genuine chance of climbing into the top six by the end of the campaign.

Their odds of 12/1 with Rhino Bet to achieve the feat look tempting, and will likely be cut if Villa pick up another victory against Nottingham Forest this weekend.

With games to come against all of the teams around them, a place in the top six is not beyond Villa if they maintain their current run of form.

Leeds Face Crucial Clash with Palace

Leeds United and Crystal Palace meet at Elland Road on Sunday in a fixture that could be crucial to their respective hopes of securing Premier League survival.

While the home side’s 2-1 victory over Forest in midweek moved them up to 13th in the table, they are just two points above the relegation zone.

Palace are one point ahead of Leeds, but have won just once in the league this year and are looking nervously over their shoulders.

The Eagles can be backed at 11/1 to be relegated and those odds will be slashed if they leave Elland Road empty handed this weekend.

However, Forest’s odds of 8/13 to go down will tempt punters looking for a quick payday given they face an extremely difficult run of fixtures over the final few weeks.
