The day is finally upon us. Week 38 of the 2014-15 Premier League season is here. It is always a somewhat sorrowful day for many and I would say that this year’s final weekend is even more so. The title has already been decided and the table has been almost entirely sorted out leaving us with very little to watch.
We are now left with two weekends of Premier League football remaining. The difficult thing with previewing these matches is trying to figure out which teams are going to go out there and play to the best of their abilities.
With week 36 arriving, the season is really starting to wind down. Three matches remain meaning there is plenty to play for despite the limited number of games left. It certainly does look gloomy at the bottom of the table, but hopes still remain.
At this point the Premier League title is basically done and dusted with Chelsea giving themselves a comfortable lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea are now at the point that they don’t even need to target wins, simply get points whether it be one or three. Facing Crystal Palace at home this weekend is a somewhat tricky match considering how Palace has been playing such dynamic attacking football lately.
The week 34 Premier League matches include an extended set of games for Chelsea, Liverpool, Leicester City, and Hull City to catch them up with the rest of the league. There are also a full set of eight matches being played on Saturday, making for a busy day of soccer watching.
It is that time of the Premier League season now where teams are starting to get desperate for results. This makes for some great soccer to watch, but also makes every match that much more difficult to predict.
The Premier League is back after a week and a half hiatus. Week 31 kicks off this weekend and the past week left us with a reminder of what things will be like in a little less than two months from now.
The great thing about the Premier League, whether or not you believe it is the “best” league in the world, is that there is a high amount of parity among many of the teams. In so many other leagues around the world there are few weekends that carry more than one really big match per week.
