Manchester City vs West Ham
Betting tip: Manchester City win to nil
Top four hopefuls West Ham have been punching above their weight this season, though the Irons could struggle to lay a glove on the division’s runaway leaders Manchester City on Saturday.
Remarkably, the Citizens have conceded just one goal in their last 11 home assignments in all competitions, and armed with a sensational 18-game winning streak overall, they look ready to claim another clean sheet on their way to three points.
Leeds United vs Aston Villa
Betting tip: Leeds United to win
Aston Villa are sweating on the fitness of their talismanic skipper Jack Grealish ahead of their trip to Elland Road, and if their home-grown schemer misses the trip to Yorkshire, the Villains’ chances of taking something from the game will be severely hampered.
Leeds should be buoyant following their impressive 3-0 victory over Southampton last time out and Marcelo Bielsa’s hard-working troops look favourites to sprint their way to more success against a Villa team that were beaten in three of their last five matches on the road.
Newcastle United vs Wolves
Betting tip: Under 2.5 goals
Each of the last four Premier League meetings between Newcastle and Wolves produced under 2.5 goals, and punters are advised to stick to the same market when the Magpies take on Wanderers on Saturday.
Newcastle mustered just eight goals combined in their last ten league fixtures, while Wolves averaged just 1.1 goals per 90 minutes across their last ten contests. Expect little goalmouth action again when these goal shy sides face off at St. James’ Park.
Leicester City vs Arsenal
Betting tip: Leicester City to win and both teams to score
Leicester have beaten Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in each of the clubs’ last three Premier League encounters there, and the Foxes look capable of delivering another blow to the Gunners at the same venue on Sunday.
Arsenal have scored at least once in five of their last six away trips however, and they are capable of notching a consolation effort against a Leicester team that have shut-out their visitors just twice in half a dozen attempts at home.
Sheffield United vs Liverpool
Betting tip: Liverpool to win
Liverpool are reeling following a dismal run of four straight defeats, and with their Champions League qualification hopes suddenly looking under threat, the Reds desperately need to pick up three points at bottom club Sheffield United.
The Merseysiders have a 100% winning record against United since the Blades’ promotion in 2019, and Liverpool are worth backing to maintain that perfect record despite their recent shortcomings.
