It’s time once again to preview the action for another pulsating round of Premier League fixtures, culminating in Man Utd v Arsenal on Monday night.
Here are our predictions for Gameweek 7 as we look over the latest Premier League odds…
Premier League Predictions 2019/20 – Gameweek 7
Saturday, all 3pm unless stated
SHEFF UTD VS LIVERPOOL, 12:30
The lowdown: Liverpool have the chance to stretch their lead at the top of the table to eight points at least temporarily as they get the Premier League weekend started against a Blades side that look comfortable at this level. A win here for Chris Wilder’s side would mean back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since 2006.
Verdict: The Reds to be simply too sharp for the Blades. 1-3
Best Bet: Over 2.0 goals in the second half at 15/8.
AFC BOURNEMOUTH VS WEST HAM
The lowdown: The Cherries will be on cloud nine after finally notching up a derby day win over local rivals Southampton last tine out, but could face a stern test against a Hammers side that look much-improved this campaign. All of Bournemouth’s last four league games have ended in a 3-1 scoreline.
Verdict: A rollercoaster ride at the Vitality. 2-2
Best Bet: Over 4.0 goals at 63/25.
ASTON VILLA VS BURNLEY
The lowdown: Villa will be looking for a second Premier League win at Villa Park this season as they welcome a Burnley side that look well set for mid-table safety this season. Sean Dyche’s side have been a bogey team for Villa in recent times, losing only once in eight meetings with the Villains.
Verdict: Honours even in the West Midlands. 1-1
Best Bet: Both teams to score and draw at 61/20.
CHELSEA VS BRIGHTON
The lowdown: Frank Lampard finally got off the mark at Stamford Bridge with an emphatic 7-1 EFL Cup win over Grimsby in midweek. He should be confident of picking up a first home league win against a Brighton side that have lost all eight of their league meetings with Chelsea, but Graham Potter has shown in previous weeks his side are more than happy to go toe-to-toe with higher profile opponents.
Verdict: A bold Brighton to be undone by Chelsea’ s attacking threat. 2-1
Best Bet: Mason Mount to score first and Chelsea to win 2-1 at 32/1.
CRYSTAL PALACE VS NORWICH CITY
The lowdown: Palace’s patchy 2018/19 form at Selhurst Park finally looks to be behind them as they gun for a Premier League club record six-game unbeaten streak at home. Norwich’s shock win over Man City currently looks an outlier, with the Canaries losing four of their past five matches in all competitions.
Verdict: Eagles to edge out the Canaries. 2-1
Best Bet: Todd Cantwell to score first at 9/1.
SPURS VS SOUTHAMPTON
The lowdown: The ‘Mauricio Pochettino’ derby sees the man himself under pressure for perhaps the first time in his tenure after a feeble EFL Cup exit on penalties against Colchester Utd. Saints will be hoping to exploit Spurs’ home discomforts, with only two wins in six for Spurs at their new stadium.
Verdict: Spurs to make up for their midweek mishap. 2-0
Best Bet: Back the first goal to go in after the first 25 minutes at 57/50.
WOLVES VS WATFORD
The lowdown: Things can surely only get better for Quique Sanchez Flores after watching his side slip to an 8-0 hammering in only his second game back at the club. However, with Wolves hungry to claim a first Premier League win themselves, expect a nervy affair at Molineux. Nuno’s side will also be out for revenge after last season’s FA Cup semi-final heartbreak.
Verdict: More woe for wobbling Watford. 2-1
Best Bet: Wolves to win from behind at 83/10.
EVERTON VS MAN CITY, 17:30
The lowdown: With the Norwich game firmly out their system, Man City have been back to their goalscoring best over the last week with 8-0 and 3-0 wins suggesting that slip-up was a one-off. Marco Silva is a man under fire at Everton after the poor home defeat to Sheffield Utd. That could intensify give he has never taken a point off his opposite number Pep Guardola in seven meetings between the pair.
Verdict: City to keep up their goalscoring form. 1-3
Best Bet: David Silva to score last at 6/1.
LEICESTER CITY VS NEWCASTLE UTD, 16:30
The lowdown: Brendan Rodgers’ side showed they have real European pedigree as they fought back to beat Spurs 2-1 in a gripping game at the King Power last week. The Foxes will be confident of making it back to back wins against a Newcastle side that managed just 29% possession against fellow strugglers Brighton, but have form in this fixture having taken all three points on both of their most recent trips to the East Midlands.
Verdict: Foxes to be too strong for the toothless Toon. 2-0
Best Bet: Leicester City to win by two goals at 33/10.
MAN UTD VS ARSENAL, 20:00
The lowdown: The heat is on for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer with Utd’s patchy form continuing to suggest they are a long way off from returning to former glories. Unai Emery also silenced some of his critics as Arsenal battled back to beat Aston Villa 3-2, but a win here for either manager would go a long way to settling the nerves creeping in amongst the respective fanbases.
Verdict: A stalemate that’s probably unsatisfactory for both sides 1-1
Best Bet: Man Utd to win the first half and the draw at full time at 53/4.
