Manchester City vs. Aston Villa
Back Manchester City in the head-to-head at 1.24 (Unibet)
Manchester City have won 5 straight league fixtures and have kept 7 clean sheets in their last 9 games. Aston Villa’s momentum has been severely disrupted by a “significant” covid outbreak at the club, which has resulted in two postponed matches. Man City have won their last seven consecutive home fixtures against Aston Villa, with six of those wins coming by 2+ goal margins and five combining with a clean sheet.
Fulham vs. Manchester United
Back Manchester United in the head-to-head at 1.54 (Unibet)
Fulham have lost their last four home fixtures against Manchester United. The visitors bring 12-4-0 away form into this clash spanning this season and the last. United have gone 7-2-0 away from home this season and their 0-0 away draw at Anfield last week broke a 42-game home scoring streak for Liverpool. Fulham have become draw specialists, with 5 draws in their last 6 games, but I can’t look past Man Utd’s imperious away form.
Liverpool vs. Burnley
Liverpool have lost their scoring Mojo recently, which has resulted in four consecutive games going under 2.5 goals with the last three going under 1.5 goals. Burnley, meanwhile, are frequently involved in low scoring games, with just 5 out of their 17 away fixtures over the last 12 months going over 2.5 goals. Burnley’s last four fixtures went under 1.5 goals as the club scored just one goal during that stretch.
