With Liverpool facing an injury crisis against Huddersfield Town, and Chelsea hosting Manchester United in a crucial six-pointer at Stamford Bridge, it could be a very interesting weekend as far as the Premier League title race is concerned.
Chelsea, Liverpool and City are all level on points at the top right now and if you bet on accas regularly you might be tempted to go for three wins for them again this weekend.
However, the Premier League is unpredictable and this looks like a weekend where City might finally get the chance to pull away from their rivals.
Here’s our predictions for the next round of fixtures…
Chelsea 0-0 Manchester United
Chelsea have made a flying start under Maurizio Sarri, but Jose Mourinho is an expert at halting possession-based sides in the big games.
You just know the former Blues boss will park the bus for this one, and the problem with Sarri is he lacks a good enough striker to bag the decisive goal.
Despite United’s struggles, we think this is sure to be a goalless draw.
Bournemouth 3-1 Southampton
Bournemouth have made a decent start to the season, but Southampton look a mess under Mark Hughes at the moment and will probably lose again.
Cardiff 0-1 Fulham
Cardiff are yet to win in the Premier League this season, and we can’t see them getting the better of a strong Fulham side that should soon click into gear and climb the table.
Manchester City 4-0 Burnley
Manchester City are at home to a Burnley side that don’t look as convincing as last term, and we can’t see anything but a comfortable win here for Pep Guardiola’s champions.
Newcastle 1-1 Brighton
Both sides are not in the best form right now, so we imagine Newcastle and Brighton will cancel each other out in this one.
West Ham 1-2 Tottenham
West Ham have recovered well recently after a dire start under Manuel Pellegrini, but visitors Tottenham will surely have too much for them at the London Stadium.
Wolves 2-0 Watford
Wolves have been superb since winning promotion to the top flight and will surely have too much for Watford here, despite the Hornets also making a fine start to the campaign, though they are now four games without a win in the league.
Huddersfield 1-1 Liverpool
Liverpool will likely have five players injured for this one, and they haven’t been in the best form anyway. Despite Huddersfield’s poor form so far this term, we think they might just have enough in them to grab a point in this one.
Everton 1-0 Crystal Palace
Everton and Crystal Palace meet on Sunday and while both have had similar starts this season, it’s the Toffees who have the superior side and who should just about edge it.
Arsenal 2-0 Leicester
Arsenal will surely make it ten wins in a row as they show a big improvement under Unai Emery, with Leicester very inconsistent so far this term and having a poor record away to Arsenal.
