Football weekends are always filled with excitement and opportunities for predictions. Let’s take a lot at weekend matches in English Premier League.



Aston Villa vs Brighton
Aston Villa will play host to Brighton at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon. Aston Villa finished seventh in the Premier League last season and qualified for European football. This season, they are sixth after six games, winning four of their six matches so far, including a 1-0 win against Chelsea last weekend. Brighton, meanwhile, have won five of their opening six games this season, beating Newcastle and Manchester United in the process. Both teams continue to grow in strength. Brighton are the Premier League’s leading scorers so far this season with 18 goals in 6 games. But Aston Villa have won each of their last nine league home matches. They have also beaten Brighton in each of their last four league meetings. However, we shouldn’t go wrong with backing this game to feature over 3.5 goals.
Correct Score: 3-2



Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Arsenal, following their thrilling 2-2 draw with Tottenham last weekend, head to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth. Bournemouth are without a win in their last ten Premier League matches and it looks likely they will be picked apart by an Arsenal side that’s won their last five away matches in the league without conceding a goal. The Gunners are on a fine run of form and it’s difficult seeing Bournemouth secure their first win of the season against them. Back Arsenal to take all three points here.
Correct Score: 1-2



Everton vs Luton Town
Everton and Luton Town go head to head at Goodison Park. Everton will be hoping to build on recent wins against Brentford and Aston Villa when they host Luton, who have lost four of their five league games. Though the Toffees haven’t had a good start to the season, they got a much-needed win at Brentford last weekend and backed that up by knocking Aston Villa out of the Carabao Cup in midweek. Those wins have provided much-needed confidence and that should help them to a win against lowly Luton.
Correct Score: 1-1



Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
Man United and Crystal Palace will square off for the second time in a week on Saturday. United have had a tough start to the season but they will be looking for a repeat result after beating Palace 3-0 in the EFL Cup in midweek. But this has the makings of tight contest. Six of Palace’s last 10 league defeats were by a 1-0 scoreline and they are currently missing the injured Odsonne Edouard, who has scored four of their six league goals this season. You can back Man United to win and Under 2.5 goals here.
Correct Score: 2-0



Newcastle United vs Burnley
Burnley will be very wary when they face a Newcastle side that beat Sheffield 8-0 last weekend and also knocked Manchester City out of the Carabao Cup in midweek. Burnley have lost four of their opening 5 games this season, drawing the other. They have also conceded 13 goals during the 5-game run. In the league, they have lost each of their last four meetings against Newcastle. I don’t see how they can bounce back against a confident and compact Newcastle at St. James Park on Saturday. Back Newcastle to win and over 2.5 goals.
Correct Score: 3-0



West Ham United vs Sheffield United
West Ham will look to return to winning ways when they host a Sheffield side that shipped in 8 goals last weekend. Sheffield are bottom of the pile after six outings and have conceded the most goals of any side so far. The Hammers should have their way this weekend and snap a two-game losing run (to Man City and Liverpool), and Jarrod Bowen should help them do that. Bowen has scored four times in his last six league games, including a header against Liverpool. Back the 26-year-old to score at anytime, while also staking West Ham to win.
Correct Score: 2-1



Wolverhampton vs Manchester City

Table toppers Man City travel to face Wolves at Molineux Stadium. They have beaten Wolves in each of their last six league encounters and have conceded just a goal in their last four. Recent results have Guardiola and his charges primed for another good win. They have eight of their last nine competitive matches – stark contrast to Wolves who have lost three of their last four games, including a 3-2 defeat at Ipswich Town in the EFL Cup in midweek. Wolves have just four points from their opening six Premier League games this season and it is easy to see Man City compounding their woes on Saturday. Back City to win.

Correct Score: 0-2



Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool
Tottenham vs Liverpool promises to be a thrilling contest. Both sides square off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Saturday evening. Spurs have won four of their opening six games this season, drawing two. They drew 2-2 with Arsenal last weekend and will be eager to all three points this weekend. But that will prove a tough challenge against a Liverpool side that’s on a seven-match winning run. The safer bet here is backing both teams to score. Goal-Goal has featured in each of their last six league encounters and should feature again.
Correct Score: 2-3



Nottingham Forest vs Brentford
Nottingham Forest and Brentford are both in desperate need of results. Forest have won only two of their opening six games, while Brentford have secured just a win and are a point below Forest on the league standings. However, both teams finding the back of the net on Sunday is a likely outcome. We have seen that outcome in each of their last four meetings.
Correct Score: 1-1



Fulham vs Chelsea
Last season Chelsea failed to beat Fulham, losing 2-1 away at the Craven Cottage before a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. This season, Chelsea have put together a terrible start, registering just a win in six games (3-0 against Luton). In midweek though they were able to secure a 1-0 win against Brighton but it remains to be seen if Pochettino and his men can build on that. Fulham, meanwhile, have 8 points from six games – three better than their Sunday opponents. Each of Chelsea’s last four games has featured under 1.5 goals. You can back this match-up to finish with Under 2.5 goals.
Correct Score: 0-1
