Though Week 26 in the English Premier League will see a slightly condensed schedule due to the EFL Cup final between Manchester United and Southampton on Sunday, the drama surrounding this round of fixtures has been turned up a couple of notches following the controversial sacking of Leicester City’s title-winning manager, Claudio Ranieri, just nine months after shocking the football world. All eyes will be on the King Power Stadium Monday night as Leicester, led by caretaker manager, Craig Shakespeare, host Liverpool while hovering just a point above the relegation zone, and could be dead last in the EPL heading into the match if results elsewhere go against them.

After nailing seven out of 10 picks in Week 25, does our resident Russian betting expert, Ric Ennis, see the Foxes pulling off a much-needed victory against the Reds? Can Chelsea take advantage of Manchester City and Arsenal being off this week by turning on the style against an in-form Swansea City? As always, let us know if you agree or disagree with the Russian’s picks.
