Fulham vs. Wolverhampton


Back Wolverhampton in the head to-head at 2.37 (bet365)

Fulham have lost 9 of their last 12 games and they have gone 1-1-3 as the home underdog this season. They take on a Wolverhampton side that has won 3 of its last 4.

Manchester United vs. Huddersfield


Back Man Utd in the head-to-head at 1.25 (bet365)
Back Man Utd -1.5 at 1.70 (bet365, Unibet)
Back Man Utd to win to nil at 1.83 (TopBetta, Ladbrokes, Bookmaker, Betstar)

Man Utd have immediately lifted under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Away against Cardiff City they scored 5 goals in the EPL for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final match in 2013. This will be their first home game under their new manager and the side will be keen to showcase its attacking prowess in front of the home fans after a dour period under José Mourinho. Huddersfield limp into this clash on the back of five consecutive defeats. They have only managed 11 goals in 18 games this season and have only scored once in their last three games. Seven of their 10 away defeats over the last 12 months were by 2+ goals and seven were to nil. Even under the conservative Mourinho, Man Utd won this fixture 2-0 last season and in their most recent home game they defeated fellow relegation contenders Fulham 4-1.

Leicester City vs. Manchester City


Back Man City in the head-to-head at 1.40 (bet365)

Leicester City did well to upset Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, but they are a notoriously inconsistent side, as highlighted by the fact that they lost to Crystal Palace a week earlier. They have hosted Liverpool and Tottenham this season and lost both fixtures, so I expect an angry Manchester City side – who lost to Crystal Palace over the weekend – will be up to the task. Manchester City have a 3-0-0 record on the back over a defeat over the last 12 months. They have won their last three clashes against Leicester City by a combined 9 goals to 2. City omitted Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero from the starting 11 against Palace. I expect we’ll see more of them in this clash. Fernandinho might be back as well. David Silva is back in training and might also feature.

Crystal Palace vs. Cardiff City


Back Crystal Palace in the head-to-head at 1.66 (bet365)

Crystal Palace have a 6-2-1 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months, while Cardiff City have gone 0-1-7 away from home this season. After a terrible run of form, Palace have won their last two home games as well as their last two fixtures, which notably includes an away win over Manchester City. Cardiff City have lost their last six straight away fixtures.

Tottenham vs. Bournemouth


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

Tottenham have an 11-1-0 record as the home favourite over the last 12 months. They have won 5 of their 6 meetings against Bournemouth, including the last 3 meetings. In those six fixtures Tottenham outscored Bournemouth 17 goals to 2. Bournemouth enter this clash having lost 6 of their last 8 games, while Tottenham have won 7 of their last 8, including the last 4 straight.

Back Tottenham -1.5 at 1.98 (bet365)

Four of Tottenham’s 5 wins over Bournemouth were by 2+ goals. Of Bournemouth’s 8 away defeats over the last 12 months, 6 were by 2+ goal margins.

Brighton vs. Arsenal


Back both teams to score at 1.75 (Neds)

Both teams have scored in 10 of Arsenal’s last 11 fixtures. The same can be said for 6 of Brighton’s last 8 games. In terms of strong opponents, Brighton have hosted Man Utd, Tottenham and Chelsea so far this season, and all three matches saw both teams score. This fixture ended Brighton 2-1 Arsenal last season.

Back over 2.5 goals at 1.78 (Unibet)

Of Arsenal’s 18 away fixtures over the last 12 months, 15 saw over 2.5 goals scored. Their last 8 straight away games have gone over the total. In terms of strong opponents, Brighton have hosted Man Utd, Tottenham and Chelsea so far this season, and all three matches went over 2.5 goals, with one going over 4.5.

Watford vs. Chelsea


Back over 2.5 goals at 1.75 (Unibet)

Over the last twelve months 14 out of Watford’s 18 home games have gone over 2.5 goals, while the same can be said for 14 out of Chelsea’s 17 away fixtures. Watford’s last 8 home games have all gone over 2.5 goals, while Chelsea’s last five away games have gone over this total. The last four meetings between the two sides have gone over the total, with the last three meetings all going over 4.5 goals. The last three clashes have seen 18 goals scored in total.
