The battle for a top-four finish in the Premier League intensifies this week with Chelsea and Leicester City desperate to pick up points and keep fifth-placed West Ham United at bay. Leicester welcomes Newcastle to the King Power Stadium on Friday for a mouthwatering tie that should produce plenty of goals.

Saturday sees Chelsea travel to champions-elect Manchester City, with Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel wary of the challenge his side faces here. And West Ham hosts fellow European hopefuls Everton on Sunday.

Leicester City Over Newcastle United (Moneyline)

Friday’s encounter in the midlands sees a rejuvenated Newcastle side travel to Leicester. The Toon have all-but successfully staved off relegation and it’s perhaps time to relax a little. This will play into Leicester’s favor, with the Foxes desperate to maintain their current pace and stay third in the league.

Leicester coach Brendan Rodgers will likely deploy his newly created forward three of Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy and James Maddison to great effect here. With Youri Tielemans providing offensive help from midfield, the hosts should win this game comfortably. See complete odds for the game here.

Manchester City-Chelsea Over (2.5 goals)

Both Man City and Chelsea played in the Champions League semi-finals in midweek, so don’t be surprised if energy levels wane somewhat on Saturday. City can be champions by the end of the weekend and Chelsea is desperate to maintain fourth spot in the table. Both sides would likely take a tie from the encounter, but Chelsea will push for three points.

Tuchel has his Blues forward arsenal motoring smoothly and will seek to attack the hosts. Yet with City’s expensive offense delivering each week for Pep Guardiola, it’s clear that both teams will score goals. See complete odds for the game here.

West Ham United Over Everton (Moneyline)

The Hammers overcame a two-game losing streak when they beat Burnley on Monday and they’re in a good place to bypass Everton too. West Ham has Michail Antonio back fit and his relationship with Jesse Lingard has put the Londoners within touching distance of a European place next season. Those two individuals have transformed West Ham from a mid-table side to one pushing for bigger and better things.

Everton has slumped lately and coach Carlo Ancelotti can’t seem to find any consistency. The defense was a mess in last weekend’s defeat to Aston Villa. West Ham is likely to exploit the same shortcomings on Sunday. See complete odds for the game here.
