Newcastle vs. Leeds

Back Leeds in the head-to-head at 1.95 (Unibet)

This is primarily a bet against Newcastle. The Magpies have lost four consecutive games and they have only scored one goal in their last six fixtures. Leeds have gone 2-0-1 as the away favourite this season and they beat Newcastle 5-2 earlier in the campaign.

Crystal Palace vs. West Ham

If Wilfried Zaha does play (at this stage is it likely that he will):
Back West Ham +0.5 at 1.40 (bet365)
Back Both Teams to Score at 1.94 (Unibet)

If Wilfried Zaha doesn’t play:
Back West Ham in the head-to-head at 2.35 (Unibet)
Back West Ham to win to nil at 3.90 (Unibet)

Crystal Palace limp into this fixture in 1-4-3 form while West Ham have only lost one of their last eight. The Hammers bring a three-game winning streak into this clash. The key for Palace is whether Wilfried Zaha will be fit for this clash. If he is then they have a decent chance of picking up a point. If he isn’t then I expect West Ham will win given Crystal Palace’s diabolical record in Zaha’s absence. Palace have won just 2 of their last 18 games when Zaha has been absent. This season they have gone 0-0-3 without scoring in his absence. Note that each of the seven previous meetings between the two saw both sides score, as well as ten of the last twelve, but that tip is contingent on Zaha playing.

West Brom vs. Man City

Back Man City to win to nil at 1.83 (Unibet)

West Brom have lost four consecutive home games and five of their six home defeats over the last twelve months were to nil. Man City bring a six-game winning streak into this clash and five of those wins came with clean sheets. Over the last twelve months 18 of Man City’s 21 wins were to nil.

Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.53 (bet365)

The last six games where West Brom hosted Man City all went over 2.5 goals. West Brom’s last four home games went over this total.

Southampton vs. Arsenal

Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.90 (bet365)

The goals have dried up for Southampton and the result has been that their last six games have gone under 2.5 goals, with four going under 1.5. The Saints hosted Arsenal in the FA Cup over the weekend and Southampton prevailed 1-0.

Chelsea vs. Wolves

Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.61 (bet365, Unibet)

Chelsea have gone 9-3-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months and they have gone 3-1-0 against Wolverhampton at Stamford Bridge since the Wolves were promoted. The visitors limp into this fixture in 0-2-4 form, with each of their last three opponents scoring at least twice.

Brighton vs. Fulham

Back the draw at 3.50 (Unibet)

Both sides are draw specialists. Brighton have drawn 4 of their last 7 while Fulham have drawn 5 of their last 7. Two of the three previous EPL meetings between the two resulted in a stalemate.

Man Utd vs. Sheffield Utd

Back Man Utd in the head-to-head at 1.27 (Unibet)

Manchester United bring 10-3-0 form into this clash while Sheffield United have gone 1-2-16 this season. Man Utd won this fixture 3-0 last season and they have scored 3 goals in each of their three previous Premier League meetings with Sheffield Utd. The visitors have yet to pick up a point against a side in the top 15 this season.

Everton vs. Leicester City

Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.99 (bet365)

Five of the last six meetings between the two at Goodison Park went over 2.5 goals.

Tottenham vs. Liverpool

Back the Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool correct score at 10.00 (bet365)

Goals have been hard to come by for Liverpool over the past few weeks, but their offence finally did come to life in their 2-3 away defeat to Man Utd in the FA Cup over the weekend. Liverpool have won each of their five previous meetings with Tottenham and four of those wins were by 2-1 scorelines.
