Wolves play hosts to Liverpool, who are on a 3-match winning run, including a neat 3-0 victory over Aston Villa before the break. Wolves, on the other hand, were beaten by Crystal Palace 3-2 in their last game – their third loss in four games. Things aren’t looking good for them and you can expect a Liverpool in fine form to pile on their misery. Back Liverpool to win here.
Aston Villa have scored 15 goals in their last 5 matches which is quite impressive. Crystal Palace have scored 7 in their last 2 games which is equally as impressive. Now, both sides registered over 1.5 goals in six of their last seven meetings. That, and their impressive goal scoring performances so far – and it’s safe to put money on an over 1.5 goals outcome.
Correct Score: 2-1
Fulham vs Luton Town
It’s hard making a case for Luton Town. The last time they faced Fulham – February last year – they conceded seven. So far this season, the newly-promoted side are without a point. But Fulham have beaten Everton and were able to take a point against Arsenal. They should be able to come away with a win on home turf on Saturday.
Correct Score: 2-0
Man United vs Brighton
Brighton have beaten United in each of their last three league meetings. This season, they have been more convincing in play than the Red Devils who were beaten 3-1 by Arsenal before the break. Tempted to go all out for Brighton in this one but let’s be more conservative here and double chance the Seagulls for a win or draw.
Tottenham vs Sheffield
It’s easy seeing Tottenham win here. 3 wins and a draw from their opening four games, while Sheffield have lost five of their last six competitive games. Easy decision here.
Correct Score: 3-0
West Ham vs Man City
West Ham and league champions Man City, have been truly solid so far this season. You can back them to produce over 2.5 goals just as they have done in four of their last five league encounters.
Correct Score: 1-2
Newcastle vs Brentford
Newcastle have beaten Brentford in each of their last three meetings. But they have been rather poor this season, losing three of their four matches so far. Brentford, meanwhile, have drawn three out of four – and if all that is anything to go by, I am backing Brentford to either win or draw on Saturday.
Correct Score: 1-2
Nottingham Forest vs Burnley
Nottingham will play host to Burnley on Monday night. Burnley are bottom of the league, having lost all three of their league games this season, conceding 11 goals. They are poor at the back and this is something Nottingham, who beat Chelsea and put two past Man United, should exploit. But Burnley – only last month – beat Nottingham 1-0 in the EFL Cup. They might just be able to spring a surprise again. However, it’s unlikely that this will be a goal fest. Back them to produce Under 3.5 goals.
Correct Score: 2-2
