Arsenal vs. Burnley


Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.23 (TopBetta)
Back Arsenal -1.5 at 1.67 (bet365)

Arsenal will be looking to make amends for their shock loss to Southampton, which snapped a 14-game unbeaten streak. They boast a 12-1-0 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months, with 11 of their 13 home wins during this period coming by 2+ goal margins. Arsenal boast a perfect 6-0-0 record against Burnley over the last three years. Burnley limp into this fixture having lost 7 of their last 9, with 5 of those defeats coming by 2+ goal margins. Looking at the interactive EPL form guide, Burnley sit bottom of the standings for results against strong teams, having lost their last 6 straight against such opponents. The last time Burnley visited Emirates Stadium they were thrashed 5-0.

Manchester City vs. Crystal Palace


Back Man City in the head-to-head at 1.16 (Betfair)
Back Man City -1.5 at 1.44 (bet365)

Crystal Palace have a diabolical record at the City of Manchester Stadium. In chronological order, their last four visits have resulted in 3-0, 4-0, 5-0 and 5-0 scorelines. Man City have gone 17-1-1 at home over the last 12 months while looking at the interactive EPL form guide, Crystal Palace have gone 0-1-4 away from home against strong opponents this season. Man City have won 15 of their last 17 home victories by 2+ goals.

Back the Man City 3-1 Crystal Palace correct score at 12.00 (bet365)

Man City’s last three homes wins were by 3-1 scorelines, while two of Crystal Palace’s last three away defeats were by the same scoreline.

Bournemouth vs. Brighton


Back Bournemouth 0 (draw no bet) at 1.41 (Betfair)
Back Bournemouth +0.5 at 1.27 (Betfair)

Bournemouth have only won 1 of their last 4 home games, but those three defeats were to Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool. As the home favourite Bournemouth have gone 8-5-0 over the last 12 months. Brighton are poor travellers, having gone 2-5-12 away from home over the last 12 months.

Newcastle vs. Fulham


Back Newcastle in the head-to-head at 2.06 (Betfair)
Back Newcastle 0 (draw no bet) at 1.49 (Betfair)

For all of Newcastle’s woes, they have actually won 4 of their last 7 games, while Fulham have lost 7 of their last 9, and this is primarily a bet against the visitors. Fulham have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and they sit bottom of the table with a woeful -26 goal difference, which is largely due to the 42 goals they have conceded in 17 games. Historically this fixture has been dominated by the home side, with the last 7 EPL clashes between the two sides won by the home team. Fulham have been dreadful away from home this campaign, going 0-1-8.

West Ham vs. Watford


Back West Ham in the head-to-head at 2.35 (Unibet)
Back West Ham 0 (draw no bet) at 1.72 (Betfair)
Back West Ham +0.5 at 1.42 (Betfair)

West Ham enter this clash on a four-game winning streak while Watford have gone 1-2-4 in their last seven games, with their sole win coming at home against Cardiff City. Defence has been a liability for Watford, who have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five games. They now take on a West Ham side that has scored 11 goals in their last four games. Generally, Watford have been poor travellers, going 2-4-12 away from home over the last 12 months.

Chelsea vs. Leicester City


Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.36 (bet365)

Chelsea have gone 3-1-0 in their last 4 home games and they kept clean sheets in 3 of those fixtures. Their most recent home win was over Manchester City, so confidence is high at Stamford Bridge at the moment. With that being said, this is actually more a bet against Leicester City, who have been poor in recent weeks. Their last three away fixtures have seen them fail to beat Brighton and Fulham and lose to Crystal Palace. Leicester have a 1-2-5 record against Chelsea since promotion and the current side looks a shade of the one from years gone by.

Everton vs. Tottenham


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 2.25 (Sportsbet)
Back Tottenham 0 (draw no bet) at 1.64 (Betfair)
Back Tottenham +0.5 at 1.39 (Betfair)

Everton have gone 0-2-2 as the home underdog over the last 12 months and they enter this clash on a four-game winless streak. In the interactive EPL form guide, Everton are ranked 17th for results against strong opponents. Tottenham have a 11-2-3 record as the away favourite over the last 12 months and they have won ten of their last twelve games, with those two defeats coming against Arsenal and Man City. Tottenham have a three-game winning streak against Everton and they won this clash 3-0 last season.
