Vardy’s Leicester will qualify for Europe

Leicester showed again at the weekend why they’re such a great team. Mahrez has now stopped throwing his toys out of his pram and is playing brilliant football again. Vardy put his name forward for goal of the month with his first time volley against West Brom this weekend.

Iheanacho got on the scoresheet finally with his easy free header, which although unspectacular will break through the invisible psychological barrier. There was a little dip there for a moment in form with a couple of draws and a loss, but I expect this game to throw them forward with momentum. The next few Premier league fixtures should be fairly easy for them and when they beat Burnley on 14th April they’ll secure 7th and a Europa spot.


Southampton will go down

They have the second lowest number of wins in the league and the highest number of draws, and unfortunately for The Saints draws do not keep you in the top flight, wins do. They are simply not fighting hard enough and I can’t see anything changing before the end of the season.

Pellegrino himself accused his players of “giving up” in the game against Newcastle and that kind of attitude is simply unacceptable. Along with West Brom I’m not sure who the 3rd team will be, maybe West Ham or Palace, but Southampton are off to the Championship.


Wenger will go – after they qualify for the Champions League

Wenger will get into the Champions League via the back door this season by winning the Europa League and it will be enough to say a glorious goodbye to one of the best managers the Premier League has ever seen.

Love him or hate him, he deserves to go out on a high and there was just about enough evidence against Watford on Saturday that he can pull the team back together and steal the trophy away from Atletico’s grasp. I could just be hoping for a nice ending, looking at it through rose tinted glasses, but I’ll be backing it with my own cold hard cash.


Nigel Pearson will take over at West Brom

West Brom are going down and everyone knows it, so what is needed when a team goes down is a manager that will scrap to get them back up. Nigel Pearson’s termination at Leicester was a bit harsh considering how he revived the team to keep them up and oversaw the creation of what turned out to be a Premier League winning side without much tinkering from Ranieri.

The ideal candidate would be Martin O’Neill but he seems genuinely committed to the Ireland job at the moment so Pearson is the next best. If either take over then I’ll definitely have a punt that they come straight back up again.


Chelsea won’t qualify for the Champions League and Conte will leave for Italy

Costacurta (of the Italian football federation) has already expressed his interest in Conte becoming the next Italy manager and Abramovich won’t stand for a season without Champions League football so Conte will be booted out if he doesn’t decide to leave of his own accord.

He doesn’t seem to be loved by the players for some reason so he won’t be entirely happy in the job anyway. But this does beg the question – who will take over? Well my crystal ball is a bit murky on that one, but I’ll be very interested to find out that’s for sure.
