Sheffield United vs. Liverpool


Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.36 (Betfair)

I expect Sheffield United will avoid relegation but I don’t see them picking up any points this weekend. Sheffield have lost their last two home games and they take on a Liverpool side that is on a 15-game winning streak. Even without playing well by their standards, Liverpool managed to keep that steak going by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge – a venue most sides struggle at. While Sheffield United did beat Everton away from home last week, they only registered 2 shots compared to Everton’s 16.

Crystal Palace vs. Norwich


Back Under 2.5 goals at 2.15 (TopBetta)
Back Under 3.5 goals at 1.45 (bet365, TopBetta)

Under Roy Hodgson Crystal Palace are disciplined and well-organised. They have conceded the 3rd fewest shots on goal this season and only one opponent has scored more than one goal against them this campaign. At the same time, Palace have struggled for goals, with the 6 goals this season the 3rd fewest in the league. Norwich have scored freely at home this season but have struggled on the road. They have failed to score an away goal since Gameweek 1. Only 6 of Palace’s 19 home fixtures over the last 12 months have gone over 2.5 goals while Norwich’s last two away fixtures have gone under the total. The two most recent EPL fixtures between the two at Selhurst Park both went under 2.5.

Tottenham vs. Southampton


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.44 (Betfair)

Tottenham didn’t field a full-strength starting XI last week and fell 1-2 away against Leicester City. The Spurs are now without a win in their last nine away fixtures, going 0-2-7. At home they have fared much better, however, where they have gone 12-2-4 as the favourite. Tottenham have won six of their last seven at home against Southampton, including the last three straight. The last two wins were both by 2+ goals. Tottenham defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 in their last home fixture.

Chelsea vs. Brighton


Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.48 (Betfair)

Under Frank Lampard Chelsea haven’t won a home game this season, but the three fixtures were all against stronger opposition than Brighton and the youthful Chelsea side has shown promising signs, particularly in attack. Brighton have a miserable 0-0-4 record against Chelsea since promotion and they continue to struggle in front of goal. In their last five games Brighton have only scored twice. Brighton’s two previous visits to Stamford Bridge have seen them lose 3-0 and 2-0.

Everton vs. Manchester City


Back Man City in the head-to-head at 1.33 (Betfair)

Everton are normally rock-solid at home but their form has been poor in recent weeks. The have lost 3 of their last 4 fixtures, with those defeats coming against Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Sheffield United. Man City suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Norwich in their last away fixture but they out-shot the hosts 25 to 7 in that clash, with 8 shots on target compared to Norwich’s 3. City have since beaten Watford 8-0 after leading 5-0 after just 18 minutes, so normal service appears to have resumed. Man City have won their two most recent visits to Goodison Park by 2-goal margins.

Leicester City vs. Newcastle


Back Leicester City in the head-to-head at 1.55 (Betfair)

Leicester City have been solid under Brendan Rodgers and now sit 3rd in the standings. They’ve only lost 1 of their last 7 fixtures and they have won 3 of their last 4, including a 2-1 win over Tottenham last week. Newcastle have looked poor this season. They played out a forgettable 0-0 draw at home against Brighton last week, which isn’t the type of form that hints of an upset this weekend. Offence has been the issue. Newcastle are currently ranked 18th for shots on goal, 18th for shots on target, 20th for expected goals and 18th for goals scored. They now take on Leicester City who have the joint best defensive record in the competition.
