Ben Parker has told Thursday’s LS11 episode that Leeds United will pick up four points from their remaining two fixtures and survive on goal difference – predicting Everton, Leicester and Nottingham Forest’s last two fixtures.
Forest, in 16th and on 34 points take on Arsenal at home, and Palace away. Everton are in 17th on 32, and they have the best run in of the four clubs. They go to Wolves this weekend, and then host Bournemouth on the final day.
Leeds travel to London to take on West Ham on Sunday, after the Hammers take on AZ Alkmaar in a European semi-final on Thursday. Then, playing host to Tottenham next weekend. A Spurs side that are incredibly inconsistent.
Leicester have arguably the toughest run in. Newcastle away, West Ham at home and with the Foxes in 19th, on 30 points, it looks as if they are down – especially after a 3-0 loss to Liverpool. Parker predicted all eight games.
The ex-Leeds defender believes Leicester will fail to pick up another point. But that Leeds, Forest and Everton will all finish on 35 – and Leeds will survive on goal difference. Leeds currently boast a better goal difference than Forest.
“I’m fed up of watching every other game. It’s far too stressful. But I’m dealing with it. I’ve worked it out – my super computer. Forest will pick up one point from their last two games, taking them to 35,” Parker told LS11 on Thursday.
“Everton will beat Bournemouth last game of the season, they’ll pick up 3. Leicester won’t get another point, finish on 30. We’ll get four points, also taking us to 35, level with Forest but with a better goal difference,” Parker added.

Forest will do well to get another point. Many are pointing towards Arsenal exiting the title race, even though they are still able to do so mathematically. They should beat Forest, and a trip to in-form Palace will be tough for Forest.
Everton have a solid run in – and they could get anything from 0 points, to six. Leicester do look as if they’re down and will fail to get another point. Leeds need to win one of their remaining two and draw the other to have a chance.
