EPL Predictions – Weekend Betting Preview

The relegation battle takes centre stage on Tuesday eveWest Ham’s surprise title bid now looks dead in the water after a poor run of form, but the Hammers could reboot their top four charge as they take on London rivals Chelsea in the Gameweek 15 opener…


Saturday 4th December

WEST HAM VS CHELSEA

David Moyes cut a frustrated figure as he watched West Ham squander all three points against a Brighton side down to 10 men at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

That 1-1 draw means it’s now three without a win for the top four chasers, and that dry spell could continue against a Chelsea side that secured a clean sheet double over them last season.

The Blues remain a point clear at the top of the table despite labouring to a 2-1 win over Watford in midweek and will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s clinical performance at the London Stadium.

Thomas Tuchel’s side ran out 1-0 winners in April, with Timo Werner’s goal on the stroke of half-time enough for the Blues to take maximum points back across West London.

Verdict: WEST HAM 1-2 CHELSEA

NEWCASTLE VS BURNLEY

Eddie Howe can take some positives from how his Newcastle side acquitted themselves for 80 minutes with 10 men against fellow strugglers Norwich.

However, the maths remains bleak for the Magpies boss at the bottom of the table, who are now six points adrift of safety with a horror show of a fixture list to come following this clash with streetwise Burnley.

A failure to pick up three points here could see Newcastle at real risk of exceeding Sheffield Utd’s 17-game run without an opening Premier League win from last season, with four of last season’s top five to come this December.

Despite the fact the Clarets also occupy a relegation spot, it’s Sean Dyche’s men who currently look in better shape to avoid the drop into the EFL Championship, having stretched their unbeaten run to five matches with a hard-fought point at Wolves.

However, draws remain damaging for Sean Dyche’s hopes of pulling his side away from serious danger, with four of those five games ending in stalemate.

Verdict: NEWCASTLE 0-0 BURNLEY

SOUTHAMPTON VS BRIGHTON

Football is a funny old game.

Just ask Neal Maupay.

Having been the villain of the piece for Brighton with his wastefulness in front of goal against Leeds, the Frenchman was the away-day hero at West Ham as his most audacious of overhead kicks sent the Seagulls home with a point.

His acrobatic strike also kept up Albion’s emerging reputation as the top flight’s draw specialists, with seven of their last nine games ending all square.

Southampton were also involved an entertaining stalemate against Leicester as they left their recent losing run behind, although Ralph Hasenhüttl will have been a touch concerned to see his side drop points from a winning position for the 69th time during his tenure.

That’s higher than any other club since his arrival in English football in December 2018.

The visitors were 2-1 victors on their last trip to St Mary’s – their first win over Southampton since arriving back in the top flight in 2017.

Verdict: SOUTHAMPTON 1-1 BRIGHTON


WOLVES VS LIVERPOOL

The division’s best attack meets the strongest defence outside the three title chasers this weekend at Molineux.

Can Bruno Lage come up with a well-organised game plan to stop Liverpool scoring less than two goals in a game for the first time since August?

The free-scoring Reds racked up a comprehensive – and rare – Goodison Park win for Jürgen Klopp as his side inflictied a punishment beating on flailing Merseyside rivals Everton. 

They’ll now be searching for a fifth win in a row in all competitions as they travel to a Wolves side lacking in inspiration of late after consecutive goalless draws against two of the bottom three in Norwich and Burnley. 

The hosts have yet to record a win over the Reds since their return to the top flight in 2018, with the in-form Diogo Jota returning to haunt his former club in a 1-0 win in this fixture last season.

Verdict: WOLVES 0-2 LIVERPOOL

WATFORD VS MAN CITY

Will fatigue be a factor as Watford take on the reigning champions?

The Hornets face the unenviable task of hosting Man City just days after coming out the wrong side of a gruelling encounter with Chelsea at Vicarage Road.

Claudio Ranieri will be hoping his side’s concentration levels remain intact given his charges were a touch unlucky not to take something from their competitive duel with a below-par Blues, as Hakim Ziyech’s second-half strike proved enough to settle a tight contest.

With none of the ‘Big Three’ dropping points in midweek, City remain narrow 7/10 favourites in the Premier League outright betting having extended their winning streak to six in all competitions.


Watford fans will have every reason to cover their eyes watching this clash, having been heavily beaten in all three of the most recent clashes between the teams.

This fixture seems guaranteed to bring back painful memories of the 6-0 FA Cup Final defeat in 2019 and an 8-0 humbling in Quique Sanchez Flores’ doomed second spell with the Hornets. 

Verdict: WATFORD 1-4 MAN CITY

Sunday 5th December

LEEDS VS BRENTFORD

Sometimes in the unforgiving top flight you just need a little bit of luck to spark your season into life.

A last-gasp penalty winner from Raphinha against Crystal Palace sent Elland Road into raptures as the Whites nicked a win that looked  

Will it be a catalyst for Leeds to kick on as they look to pull themselves away from danger?

Marcelo Bielsa’s men will now be looking for their first back-to-back wins of the season as one of their former second tier promotion rivals make the trip up to West Yorkshire.

The Bees are seeking a first win at the home of the Whites since 2015, and their reasonable away return remains one of their strongest suits as they look to consolidate at this level for the first time since the 1940s.

Their Thursday night loss to Spurs was only their second away defeat of the season, but it’s now three without a win on the road for Thomas Frank’s men.  

Verdict: LEEDS 2-1 BRENTFORD

MAN UTD VS CRYSTAL PALACE

With his work permit issues resolved, all eyes will be on the Old Trafford dugout on Sunday to see if Ralf Rangnick can work some instant magic on underperforming Man Utd.

The new Red Devils interim boss has been handed an interesting first test against Crystal Palace. The Eagles are reeling from back-to-back losses but have plenty of recent history in making a splash away at Big Six sides.

Can the Patrick Viera make it an uncomfortable first Premier League experience for his German opposite number?

The South Londoners pulled off the perfect game plan on their last trip to Manchester back in October, outsmarting Man City 2-0 at the Etihad – and they have form over the last two seasons for silencing the home support at Old Trafford too.

The visitors could pull off the rare feat or recording a consecutive hat-trick of wins on Utd’s home turf if they can snatch all three points on Sunday.

Verdict: MAN UTD 3-1 CRYSTAL PALACE

SPURS VS NORWICH

Will Norwich end up rueing their inability to finish off 10-man Newcastle on Tuesday night?

That point saw Dean Smith continue his unbeaten start as Canaries boss, but the former Aston Villa boss will know it’s wins that will ultimately determine his side’s fate as they head into a fiendish festive fixture list. 

The Canaries enjoyed their last jaunt down to London back in November as they beat Brentford in Daniel Farke’s final game in charge and had some joy on their last trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Tim Krul was the hero for the visitors back in March 2020 as his penalty-saving exploits sent Norwich to a first FA Cup quarter-final in 28 years at Spurs’ expense.

Verdict: SPURS 2-0 NORWICH

ASTON VILLA VS LEICESTER CITY

An intriguing Midlands rivalry with a Liverpool-themed sub-plot rounds off Sunday’s action as Steven Gerrard meets his former boss Brendan Rodgers for the first time as managerial equals.

There’s also an Old Firm connection at play in this fixture, with both managers switching midstream from a Scottish Premiership title fight to re-establish their reputations in the Premier League.

It’s a move that’s mostly worked out for Rodgers despite an uneven campaign so far this term.

The Northern Irishman will be eager to test his former protégé’s resolve after Gerrard tasted defeat for the first time since returning south against Man City, and it was the visitors who reigned supreme in a 2-1 win in the last meeting back in February.

A devasting four-minute spell from the Foxes saw James Maddison and Harvey Barnes fire the away side into an early 2-0 lead before Bertrand Traore volleyed in a second-half consolation.

Verdict: ASTON VILLA 2-2 LEICESTER

Monday 6th December

EVERTON VS ARSENAL

Finally, can Rafa Benitez reverse Everton’s slide down the table as his tumbling Toffees round things off on Monday night against Arsenal?

The Spaniard received the dreaded vote of confidence from chairman Farhad Moshiri in the wake of their midweek derby day collapse.

The Everton owner has publicly insisted Benitez will be given breathing space to turn things around after that 4-1 defeat to Liverpool.

However, it remains to be seen how long that position will hold should Benitez lose for a seventh time in eight league games on Monday night in-front of an increasingly hostile home crowd.

However, Arsenal’s erratic record at Goodison Park should give the under-fire Benitez some reasons to be cheerful as the Blues look to escape their recent rut.

The Gunners have only managed to take maximum points from one of their last five trips to the blue half of Merseyside.

Verdict: EVERTON 1-1 ARSENAL
