Leeds United vs Bournemouth
Odds: Leeds – 8/11 Draw – 14/5 Bournemouth – 15/4
I’m taking Leeds here, with Neto out Bournemouth will be a lot more vulnerable defensively and I actually really like how Leeds are playing even if it hasn’t fully translated into results. I do expect Leeds to get caught on the counter and concede at some point in this game but they can overpower Bournemouth and win 3-1.
Leeds 3-1 Bournemouth
Manchester City vs Fulham
Odds: Man City – 1/9 Draw – 17/2 Fulham – 18/1
It looks like Haaland is back and if he is, I expect this to be a bit of a bloodbath. Fulham have been the worst defensive team in the league for a while and City’s home scoring record is ridiculous, I expect City to win this 5-0.
Man City 5-0 Fulham
Nottingham Forest vs Brentford
Odds: Forest – 7/4 Draw – 23/10 Brentford – 8/5
I know they got battered 5-0 last week but before that Forest had looked to have solidified things up defensively and I like that they are playing hard for Cooper, with Brentford missing Toney and being a leaky side away from home, I’m taking Forest to pick up a win here.
Notts Forest 2-1 Brentford
Wolves vs Brighton
Odds: Wolves – 23/10 Draw – 23/10 Brighton – 5/4
Brighton have poor away form and Wolves have poor home form so I’ll just take the better team here and that’s Brighton. They have been more solid at the back lately and with Wolves being a side that struggles to find the net, they’ll likely only need to score 2 here to pick up the win in this one. I’ll take them to do that and win 2-1.
Wolves 1-2 Brighton
Everton vs Leicester
Odds: Everton – 7/5 Draw – 23/10 Leicester – 2/1
This match is very likely to be cagey, but I like what Everton have been doing lately, they’ve solidified majorly at the back and they’ve proven in recent games that they have a few goals in them at home, I expect that they’ll only need 1 here to win and they can win 1-0.
Everton 1-0 Leicester
Chelsea vs Arsenal
Odds: Chelsea – 31/20 Draw – 12/5 Arsenal – 17/10
Chelsea have been in poor form lately and Arsenal haven’t been playing their best football away from home, that leads me to believe that this will end up being a lower quality game than anticipated and this sort of game falls squarely into the 1-1 category.
Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal
Aston Villa vs Manchester United
Odds: Villa – 23/10 Draw – 13/5 United – 11/10
I’m taking the upset here, a forward like Ollie Watkins may cause problems for a United defence that isn’t the biggest and with Bruno Fernandes currently being suspended, United may lose a bit of creativity. Villa were awful last time out but that was away from home and I can’t see them putting in the same level of performance at home so I’ll take them to win at a decent price.
Aston Villa 2-1 Man United
Southampton vs Newcastle
Odds: Southampton – 3/1 Draw – 13/5 Newcastle – 9/10
I believe Southampton will give Newcastle a very tough game but that their lack of goalscorers will haunt them in this one. Newcastle have a few attacking players on fire and are arguably the most defensively solid team in the league, I’m not sure how much I’d want to put on them at odds on but I do see them winning this game 2-0.
Southampton 0-2 Newcastle
West Ham vs Crystal Palace
Odds: West Ham – 9/10 Draw – 12/5 Palace – 16/5
I expect West Ham to win comfortably here. Palace have offered little attacking threat in their last couple of away games and with West Ham being a solid home team, I believe they can keep a clean sheet. They’re showing enough going forward as well to make me believe they can score a couple here so I’ll take a 2-0 win for West Ham.
West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace
Tottenham vs Liverpool
Odds: Spurs – 23/10 Draw – 13/5 Liverpool – 11/10
Spurs have pretty much all of their key attacking players except Kane injured while Liverpool have arguably one of the worst 5 defences in the league. This makes this game very intriguing and I can see this being another 1-1, Liverpool have really struggled to score away from home this season and with their defence being so leaky, it’s tough to put them up to win away at the moment against anyone.
Spurs 1-1 Liverpool
