Crystal Palace vs. Newcastle


Back Newcastle +0.5 at 1.68 (bet365)
(this bet presumes that Callum Wilson will feature for Newcastle and Wilfried Zaha won’t feature for Crystal Palace)

Crystal Palace have three fewer days to prepare for this fixture than Newcastle. The biggest issue is their star player Wilfried Zaha tested positive for covid and will most likely miss this fixture. The Eagles have lacked a cutting edge in attack without him. This is highlighted by the fact that they’ve lost 13 of the previous 15 fixtures in which he was absent. Crystal Palace also have issues at the other end of the field. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 league games and have conceded in eight consecutive matches. Palace are also still without captain Luka Milivojevic due to suspension. Newcastle aren’t in great form themselves, which is why I’ve opted for the Asian handicap rather than the head-to-head. They’ve conceded a goal in eight consecutive league games and have failed to score in the two games since Callum Wilson got injured. The good news is that Wilson is expected to return for this clash. He has scored six of Newcastle’s 10 goals this season.

Back Under 1.5 goals at 3.05 (Unibet)
Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.68 (Unibet)

The last 7 meetings between the two saw fewer than 2.5 goals and 6 of those meetings saw fewer than 1.5 goals.

Brighton vs. Liverpool


Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.60 (Unibet)

With so many injuries and absences, many pundits thought Liverpool’s unbeaten streak at home would end last week, but they responded by beating Leicester City comfortably. Liverpool drew their previous two away fixtures but they were against Everton and Man City, who are in a different class to Brighton. The hosts have gone 1-1-5 as the home underdog over the last 12 months and Brighton have gone 0-0-6 against Liverpool since promotion to the Premier League. Liverpool have won their previous three visits to Amex Stadium by a combined 12 goals to 2.

Manchester City vs. Burnley


Back Man City -1.5 at 1.50 (bet365)

Man City have won their previous three home games against Burnley by 3-0, 5-0 and 5-0 scorelines. Over the last 12 months 8 of Man City’s 11 home wins were by 2+ goals, while 5 of Burnley’s 6 away defeats were by 2+ goals.

Back Man City to win to nil at 1.83 (bet365)
Back Both Teams To Score: No at 1.64 (BlueBet)

Three of Man City’s previous four home wins over Burnley were to nil and 8 of their 11 home wins over the last 12 months were to nil. Five of Burnley’s six away defeats over the last 12 months were to nil. The visitors have scored just one goal in their last five games.

Everton vs. Leeds


Back Everton +0.5 at 1.28 (Unibet)
Back Everton +0.0 (draw no bet) at 1.45 (bet365)

Everton have gone 6-4-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months. They got Richarlison back last week and he had an immediate impact with two assists as the Toffees put 3 goals past Fulham. Dominic Calvert-Lewin continues to be in fine scoring form with a league-leading 10 goals. Leeds kept a clean sheet in their draw against the out-of-sorts Arsenal last week, but prior to that they conceded 4 goals against both Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

West Brom vs. Sheffield United


Back Under 0.5 goals (0:0 correct score) at 8.50 (bet365)
Back Under 1.5 goals at 2.95 (Unibet)
Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.66 (bet365)

After a rocky start, West Brom have become solid defensively but they have found goals hard to come by, with just 1 goal scored in their last 6 games. Sheffield United enter this fixture with the worst offensive record in the league with just 4 goals scored in 9 games.

Chelsea vs. Tottenham


Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.76 (Unibet)

This fixture features two teams with the 1st and 3rd best offensive records in the competition. Eight of the previous ten fixtures between the two at Stamford Bridge went over 2.5 goals. Chelsea’s last three home fixtures saw 4, 6 and 5 goals scored, with Chelsea scoring at least three goals in each of them. Tottenham have scored 13 goals in their four away fixtures this season.

Arsenal vs. Wolverhampton


Back Wolverhampton +0.5 at 1.83 (bet365)

These are concerning times for Arsenal. Last week they only managed two shots on target against Leeds, a team that has the 3rd worst defensive record in the league. The Gunners have scored just one goal in their previous five league games, and that was from the penalty spot. They failed to beat Wolverhampton in 3 of their 4 previous meetings at Emirates Stadium. The visitors are a tough nut to crack. They’ve only lost one of their last six games with none of their opponents scoring more than once.

Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.66 (bet365)

Both sides are tied for the 15th best offensive record and the 2nd best defensive record this season. Wolverhampton’s last six games all went under 2.5 goals and the last four meetings between the two at Emirates Stadium went under 2.5.

Leicester City vs. Fulham


Back Leicester City in the head-to-head at 1.52 (Unibet)

Prior to last week’s defeat at Anfield Leicester City had won six straight in all competitions. They scored 15 goals and conceded only 2 during that stretch. Jamie Vardy has scored eight league goals in seven appearances and the Foxes take on a Fulham outfit that has the 2nd worst defensive record in the league.
