Brighton vs. Newcastle


Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.67 (Unibet)

Brighton have only scored more than 1 goal in one of their last 11 Premier League fixtures while only 6 of Newcastle’s 18 away games over the last twelve months went over 2.5 goals. Only one of the seven previous league meetings between the two went over 2.5 goals, with all three meetings at Amex Stadium going under this total. Five of their seven previous Premier League meetings went under 1.5 goals and three resulted in 0-0 draws.

Back the draw at 3.55 (Unibet)

Brighton have gone 0-6-3 as the home favourite over the last 12 months while Newcastle enter this clash on the back of three consecutive draws. Three of the last four meetings between the two resulted in a stalemate.

Chelsea vs. Sheffield United


Back Chelsea -1.5 at 1.77 (bet365)
Back Chelsea to win to nil at 1.90 (bet365)
Back the Chelsea 2-0 Sheffield United correct score at 6.10 (Unibet)

Under new manager Thomas Tuchel Chelesa have gone 3-2-0 at home without conceding a single goal. All three of their wins were by 2-0 scorelines. Sheffield United parted ways with manager Chris Wilder prior to their latest Premier League game and under interim manager Paul Heckingbottom they suffered a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Leicester City. It was their worst league defeat since April 2000, which suggests things are going to get worse before they get better. The Blades have gone 1-1-15 away from home in the Premier League over the last 12 months.
