Leicester’s match against Fulham will be Brendan Rodgers’ first match in charge of the Foxes at home and it could hardly be a better start. Fulham’s season is falling apart and with Scott Parker now at the helm, relegation is almost a certainty. The Cottagers have the worst defence in the league, conceding 65 goals in just 29 games. Leicester might not be in their best form, but this game is a chance for them to end the season on a high note. With a new manager and against a poor team at home, it will be a surprise if they don’t come away with 3 points. One of the bright sparks of Leicester’s recent poor run is Jamie Vardy’s goalscoring. Vardy has scored 3 goals in his last 4 games and under Rodgers’ attacking football, he could flourish.
After an impressive Champions League result in Dortmund, Tottenham travel to Southampton looking to assert themselves in 3rd place. Against Southampton, they’ve got the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways. Southampton have only won one of their last 6 games and are just 2 points out of the relegation zone. Although Ralph Hasenhuttl has got the Saints playing some better football, it looks like the final relegation place will now be between Southampton and Cardiff. Tottenham on the other hand are on their worst run of the season, but will be buoyed by their 1-0 win against Dortmund. Their recent record against Southampton points to an easy win for Spurs, they have only lost once since 2005.
Middlesbrough look set to secure another season in the playoffs this season under Tony Pulis. Boro are currently in 5th after losing just 1 game since Boxing Day and take on Brentford on Saturday, who have massively fallen off after an impressive start. Led by Frenchman Neal Maupay, Brentford were play off contenders before a run of 8 losses in 10 games sent them tumbling towards the relegation zone. Their form has picked up since the New Year, but inconsistency has halted their rise up the table. When the sides met earlier this season, Boro won 2-1, extending their unbeaten run against the Bees. Remarkably, Brentford haven't won this fixture since 1964, and with Middlesbrough in form, we don’t expect this to change.
