Another weekend of Premier League football action is upon us, with nine games taking place over Saturday and Sunday. As we edge closer to the end of the season, there are still matters to be decided. And some of the fixtures coming up will have a bearing on how the picture looks.
Saturday Premier League Football Action
Norwich vs Brighton
While Brighton’s form has been indifferent of late, Norwich continues on their losing run. We keep thinking their bad form must end somewhere, but we don’t think they will turn the tide today. The best the Canaries can hope for is a draw. But we believe the Seagulls will swoop and take all three.
Leicester vs Crystal Palace
Leicester’s recent form hasn’t been great, with their grip on a top-four finish beginning to loosen. Palace have lost their previous two. However, before then they were doing well. You could say both sides need a win, but we think they’ll cancel each other out at the Walkers Stadium.
Manchester United vs Bournemouth
At Old Trafford, we will see a team going from strength to strength take on a side sliding towards the Championship. Bournemouth aren’t scoring goals, and they are struggling to lay a glove on their opponents, which makes us confident of a home win for Manchester United.
Wolves vs Arsenal
Wolves are one of the form sides in the division, with the link-up between Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez a force to be reckoned with for any defence. Arsenal have won their last two football games and will arrive at Molineux full of confidence. The Gunners could have enough about themselves to pinch a point before heading back to London.
Chelsea vs Watford
Chelsea’s winning run came to an abrupt end in their defeat to West Ham midweek. So they will be looking to bounce back against a struggling Watford side. Chelsea can beat anyone on their day. And Watford will succumb here, with the stark possibility of relegation staring them in the face.
Sunday Premier League Football Action
Burnley vs Sheffield United
Turf Moor sees the battle of the English bosses take place. Both sides are hard-working, so, it should make for a thrilling fixture. Two points separate the teams in the football division, and a draw is a sensible prediction to make. And one thing you can be sure of is there will be plenty of commitment on show.
Newcastle vs West Ham
We expected West Ham to come into this football match after another defeat, but they aren’t. It changes the picture slightly, but after Newcastle won 4-1 last time out; we think it will stand them in good stead on home turf. Look forward to a close game but Newcastle will edge it.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa
Liverpool was on the wrong end of a 4-0 reverse last time out, and they will want to set the record straight against Villa. Dean Smith’s Villains are winless and struggling. So facing a wounded animal in Liverpool won’t end well for them.
Southampton vs Manchester City
The final football game of the weekend will see Southampton host a Man City side buoyant after hammering Premier League champions Liverpool. It is expected City will be relentless; showing their prowess at St Mary’s. And Southampton will not be able to stop them.
