More away-day blues for Gunners

Reds to settle for derby draw

Everton would like nothing better than to put a dent in Liverpool’s title hopes and Marco Silva’s side have the ability to draw with their city rivals at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Reds’ title run to take a hit

The Reds may have only lost one Premier League game this season but recent draws against Leicester, West Ham and Manchester United seemed to have stalled their momentum before Wednesday’s 5-0 win over Watford.

Everton’s recent record in Merseyside derbies is appalling but they have at least managed to draw five of the last six Goodison Park clashes between the two teams and another tie this weekend at 4.10 is worth backing.

More away-day blues for Gunners

Tottenham will be keen to gain some revenge for their 4-2 defeat at Arsenal earlier in the campaign when they take on their north London rivals at Wembley.

The Gunners’ away form this season has been poor – they have only won five of 13 top-flight matches on their travels – and have conceded 26 goals, more than Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace.

Saturday’s match could be a lively and high-scoring affair – over 4.5 goals is available at 4.65 – with Spurs just having the edge. A one-goal win for the home team can be backed at 3.45.

Woeful Fulham to lose again

The third derby of the weekend takes place at Craven Cottage where Fulham entertain Chelsea.

The Cottagers appear to be heading back to the Championship and appear to be planning for the future with the sacking of Claudio Ranieri.

Fulham continue to concede goals at an alarming rate – 20 in eight matches since the turn of the year – and they have lost seven of those encounters.

Chelsea beat Fulham 2-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the campaign and a repeat of that scoreline at 6.50 is not out of the question.

Seagulls need to stop their slide

Huddersfield Town have the opportunity to show they can beat a team other than Wolves when they visit freefalling Brighton.

The Terriers may have won only three matches all season but they have completed the double over Nuno Espirito Santo’s team and will fancy their chances of beating a Seagulls outfit that have won one and lost eight of their last 12 top-flight matches and the away win is tempting at 5.05.

Meanwhile, Wolves have a great opportunity to get back on track as they host a Cardiff City side that have lost at home to Watford (5-1) and Everton (3-0) in the last week.

Both were in the Championship last term but, while Wolves are on course to finish seventh, the Bluebirds look set to be relegated this term unless they can halt their slide.

Molineux may not be the place to do it though and Wolves can ease to a routine 2-0 victory (5.55) against Neil Warnock’s struggling outfit.

Clarets to get back on track but tough start for Brendan

Burnley can bounce back after performing poorly in the 2-0 defeat at Newcastle by beating Crystal Palace at Turf Moor in a low-scoring encounter.

The Clarets had been on an eight-match unbeaten run before the St James’ Park setback and can edge to a one-goal win (3.90) against the Eagles.

Brendan Rodgers takes charge of Leicester City for the first time since succeeding Claude Puel as Foxes boss but it will be difficult for him to get off to a good start as Watford will be keen to respond to their 5-0 thumping at Liverpool by winning the Vicarage Road clash.

Back-to-back wins against Everton and Cardiff City before Wednesday’s setback at Anfield have left the Hornets on course to clinch a top-half finish which would be their highest placing since they returned to the Premier League in 2015/16. Watford are 2.50 to beat Leicester.

Goals to flow for City

Bournemouth have lost all seven fixtures against Manchester City in the last four seasons, four times by four-goal margins, and it could be another one-sided affair on Saturday. City are 3.70 to win by four goals or more again this weekend.

Manchester United may have a lengthy injury list to contend with but they should still be too good for a Southampton team that recorded a much-needed victory against Fulham on Wednesday.

Paul Pogba is 6.00 to score the first goal while the draw at 3.40 appears to be the most likely outcome for the mid-table clash between West Ham United and Newcastle United.
