The Dugout Discussion – Sunday

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Paul

There are just two matches on today’s Premier League agenda, with Arsenal’s Emirates encounter against West Brom getting us underway in a short while. Everton’s home defeat to City yesterday evening means the Gunners have now secured Champions League qualification for another season – whilst Mesut Ozil owners will be desperate for a good showing after many big-hitters failed to deliver in Saturday’s seven fixtures, Aaron Ramsey owners are left ruing their luck after the midfielder was ruled with a minor thigh injury. :

A win for the Baggies would ensure Pepe Mel’s side are safe for another year, though even if they suffer defeat, the midlands outfit may be safe by the end of today, depending on the result from Chelsea’s match with Norwich later this afternoon.

Even if the Canaries somehow salvage an unexpected draw today, Villa and Hull’s safety is guaranteed, whilst their vastly inferior goal difference would also mean West Brom are also secure, barring a mathematical miracle next weekend.

Jose Mourinho’s men have other ideas, though, as they look to bounce back from their midweek Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid. The Blues are on the hunt for a seventh home clean sheet in eight attempts, whilst Eden Hazard owners will be desperate for the Belgian to deliver in Chelsea’s final home match of the season.

Our Twitter feed carries all the news from today’s team sheets, while the Dugout Discussion chatroom remains open to collect your real-time reactions to today’s events.

  3. Posted this earlier but a repost never hurt anyone :)

    I've been battling for an iPad over the past few months but I've finally given up my fight only to find that 2nd place prize is a ps4 and 3rd prize is a trip to a match of your choice 😯

    I'm 50 points clear of 4th so I should be in the prizes, hopefully 2nd prize.

    Puts in perspective how poo the overall prizes in the actual game are!

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
