Cardiff City v Brighton - 12:30pm on Saturday 10th November

Cardiff dropped back into the bottom 3 following Newcastle’s win on Saturday, but have a good opportunity to bounce back against Brighton. On an emotional day at the Cardiff City Stadium, a Demarai Gray goal was enough to give Leicester the 3 points. Cardiff weren’t completely out of the game however. Neil Warnock’s side seem to be getting to grips with the Premier League, but their lack of overall quality is still a worry. There are few Cardiff players who would walk into their rivals teams, and even with the spirit that Cardiff show, they need some star players to survive.

The Seagull’s winning run came to and end with a 3-1 defeat at Brighton. Richarlison and Seamus Coleman scored either side of Lewis Dunk to ensure that Everton’s good run would continue. Brighton still sit 12th and look on course to improve on last season’s 15th place finish. If Brighton can secure their position in the Premier League for another season, then they can look at the success of Bournemouth as a level that can realistically be achieved. An away trip to Cardiff will no doubt be tough, but if Brighton are to become a serious Premier League team, they need to pick up 3 points in this type of game.

Under 1.5 Goals

We don’t expect this early kick off to be full of goals, with both sides low scoring this season.

Huddersfield v West Ham - 3:00pm on Saturday 10th November

Huddersfield grabbed their first win of the season, becoming the last team in the English football league to win. A Timothy Fosu-Mensah own goal gave Huddersfield a deserved 30th minute lead. The Terriers had been the better of the 2 sides and had already hit the woodwork before Fosu-Mensah’s wayward header found the bottom corner. As Huddersfield’s defence grew tired, Fulham created more chances but Huddersfield managed to hold on. The real test will be whether David Wagner can encourage his players to build on this result and get away from the relegation zone.

The London Stadium has rarely been a stadium that West Ham fans have enjoyed, but their 4-2 win against Burnley might be one of their best performances at the ground. Marko Arnautovic, Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez all scored in a dominant Hammers performance. Felipe Anderson in particular showed some of the flair and skill that West Ham would have been hoping for when he was signed. The Brazilian has grown and grown as the season has went on and could be a star.

West Ham To Win And Over 2.5 Goals

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are starting to click together and despite Huddersfield’s first win, they are likely to struggle.

Leicester City v Burnley - 3:00pm on Saturday 10th November

On what is sure to be another emotional afternoon, Leicester will play at the King Power Stadium for the first time since the helicopter crash that sadly cost Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha his life. The Chairman would have been proud of Leicester’s performance at Cardiff last weekend, with Demarai Gray grabbing the winning goal. The players were clearly emotional during the minutes silence, but rallied together for the win. Gray, Jonny Evans and Jamie Vardy all had chances to extend the lead. In the end, Leicester fans will be happy to end such a traumatic week on a positive.

Burnley’s season is threatening to derail again after losing 4-2 at West Ham. Burnley have now conceded 13 goals in just 3 matches, and have only scored 3 in their last 4. Sean Dyche will need to turn this around, but against Leicester it is tough to see how it will get any easier. Johann Gudmundsson and Chris Wood grabbed the goals for Burnley, but goalscoring has still been a problem this season. Even if they do keep a clean sheet, 0-0 will likely be the best they can hope for without an out and out striker to rely on.

Leicester To Win To Nil

Without a goalscoring striker, Burnley will struggle against a fired-up Leicester City.

Newcastle United v Bournemouth - 3:00pm on Saturday 10th November

Newcastle grabbed a timely first win of the season after a spirited second half display. In truth, Rafa Benitez’s side were lucky to be level at the break, as Gerard Deulofeu missed countless chances. Last season’s top scorer Ayoze Perez headed in the winner from Ki Sung-Yueng’s free kick with just under half an hour left, as Newcastle were much improved in the second half. Newcastle defended well as Watford applied pressure, but a centre back pairing of Fabian Schar and Federico Fernandez kept the Hornets at bay. 3 injuries to Jonjo Shelvey, Yoshinori Muto and Jamaal Lascelles will be a worry to Benitez, but all 3 substitutions made against Watford more than stepped up to the plate.

Bournemouth were unlucky to leave the Vitality Stadium with nothing after Marcus Rashford’s late equaliser. Calum Wilson gave the hosts an early and fully deserved lead after 11 minutes. Bournemouth had chances before the opening goal and should have been ahead at the break, but in form Anthony Martial scored for the 4th game in a row. Rashford’s late goal gave United an undeserved win and ended Bournemouth’s good run of form. After their defeat, Bournemouth sit in 6th, just 4 points outside of the top 4.

Both Teams To Score

Newcastle will have some confidence, but an inform Callum Wilson might be too much for Newcastle’s defence to handle

Southampton v Watford - 3:00pm on Saturday 10th November

Southampton became the latest victims of Manchester City’s outstanding front line in their 6-1 defeat at the Etihad. Despite the obvious strength that City have, it was still an abject performance from the Saints. A 6th minute own goal set the defensive precedent for Southampton and they went on to concede 3 in just 18 minutes. Danny Ings scored a penalty but another 3 goals conceded has put Mark Hughes’ position in huge doubt. After sending Stoke down last season, and now appearing to send Southampton the same way, if Hughes does lose his job, it may be awhile before he gets another chance.

Watford can feel hard done by after their 1-0 loss at Newcastle. In the first half, the Hornets had countless chances to put themselves ahead through Gerard Deulofeu and Adrian Mariappa. Watford’s dominance continued into the second half, with Roberto Pereyra hitting the bar early on, but Newcastle slowly grew into the game. Without an out and out striker on the pitch for most of the match, Watford struggled to break Newcastle’s defence down. It’ll be a surprise not to see Andre Gray take back his normal starting position against Southampton.

Watford To Score and Under 2.5 Goals

Southampton can’t seem to score lately, and with Watford not taking their chances recently, this could be a tight game.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur - 5:30pm on Saturday 10th November

2 quickfire goals ended any hope of Crystal Palace springing a surprise on Chelsea in their 3-1 loss to Chelsea. Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea a first half lead, before Andros Townsend restored some hope for the visitors in the 53rd minute. Morata and Pedro scored within 5 minutes of each other as Palace were pushing for the winner, sending Palace to their 4th defeat in 5 games. Roy Hodgson’s men are without a win since mid September and could drop perilously close to the relegation zone if results go against them this weekend.

Tottenham almost threw away a 3 goal lead at Molineux on Saturday night. Centre half Julian Foyth didn’t enjoy his debut, giving away 2 second half penalties that almost cost Spurs the game. Before the break, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura both continued their impressive starts to the season with goals. Wolves couldn’t handle Spurs’ attacking strength even after containing Manchester City and Manchester United to draws. Harry Kane added a third before Spurs imploded, but they held on to bounce back from their Manchester City defeat.

Spurs To Win and Over 2.5 Goals

Palace simply haven’t performed at home this season and Tottenham will have too much for them.

Liverpool v Fulham - 12:00pm Sunday 11th November

Liverpool were 10 minutes away from joining Manchester City at the top of the table but were denied by an Alexandre Lacazette goal. Liverpool started the game strongly and were cruelly denied an opening goal after Sadio Mane was wrongly adjudged to have been offside. If that goal had stood, it would no doubt have been a different story. James Milner gave Liverpool the lead, even after Arsenal grew into the game. Arsenal’s pressure eventually paid off, and Liverpool conceded late on as they fell behind in the title race.

It’s all going wrong at Fulham, who are now winless in 8 games. The Cottagers would have looked at their game against Huddersfield as a chance to pick up some points, but they still left the John Smith’s with nothing. It’s Fulham’s defensive fragility that lets them down, giving their midfield and forwards no room for error when they do manage to get forward. They are without a clean sheet this season and are on course to set the record for most goals conceded in the league. Against a free-scoring Liverpool side, Fulham could be in trouble.

Liverpool To Score Over 3.5 Goals

Liverpool’s forward line can have a field day against a Fulham defence that cannot defend at all this season.

Chelsea v Everton - 2:15pm on Sunday 11th November

Chelsea’s forward problems look like they have been solved by Alvaro Morata finally hitting some form. The Spaniard has now scored 3 in the last 2 games and showed real signs of quality against Crystal Palace. Both of Morata’s goals showed different strengths to his game and if he can carry on in this style, Chelsea could mount a strong title challenge. A midfield of Hazard, Pedro, Willian and Barkley continues to provide goals in the absence of an out and out striker.

Everton quickly bounced back from from their Old Trafford defeat with a comfortable 3-1 win against Brighton. Brazilian winger Richarlison was deployed as a striker and Marco Silva’s tactical changed worked wonders. Richarlison scored twice, taking his tally for the season up to 6 goals for the season. Considering he was suspended and then injured, this is an impressive stat. Yerry Mina, Bernard and Andre Gomes all featured at Goodison Park as it appears Everton’s new signings are now all fully integrated into the squad.

Chelsea To Win And BTTS

Both teams are playing well this season, but home advantage will tip this one in Chelsea’s favour.

Arsenal v Wolves - 4:30pm on Sunday 11th November

In the past years, Arsenal have struggled against the bigger sides, but a 1-1 draw with Liverpool proves that Arsenal have turned a corner. Unai Emery has been a welcome change to Arsene Wenger and his passion was clearer than ever against Liverpool. It was a deserved point for the Gunners, who had a few chances before Liverpool’s opening goal. It was the introduction of Alex Iwobi that made the difference late on. The Nigerian international set up Alexandre Lacazette who controlled the ball around Allison before firing into the far corner.

After an impressive start to the season, Wolves are starting to struggle back in the top flight. 3 defeats on the bounce have seen Wolves drop down to 11th, hardly a poor position, but still not as good as Wolves have shown they can be. Against Spurs, they simply couldn’t get started and found themselves 3-0 down just after half time. A spirited second half display threatened a comeback, but overall Spurs contained Wolves’ forward line. If it wasn’t for the penalties, it’s hard to see how Wolves would have scored.

Lacazette To Score Anytime

Now he’s the main man at Arsenal, Lacazette looks more and more threatening every week.
