Manchester United v Luton
This one hinges on just how far the Red Devils are willing to descend into farce for the neutrals’ entertainment.
Most read in Football
Erik ten Hag’s side should have enough to get past a newly-promoted outfit currently 17th in the table but the manner of their recent defeats to Manchester City, Newcastle and Copenhagen haven’t inspired much confidence.
Worryingly, Man United have scored just 12 league goals this season – fewer than Wolves and the same number as Nottingham Forest.
They’re also the only team in the top half with a negative goal difference.
The Hatters drew with Liverpool last weekend but that was on home soil – if this weekend’s clash was also at Kenilworth Road then we’d be inclined to back another upset.
As it is, we’re envisaging an unconvincing home win.
Our Prediction: 2-1 to Man United
Bournemouth v Newcastle
The league’s second-worst defence welcome the league’s second-best attack to the south coast.
A trip to the other end of the country hot the heels of a European away day is not ideal for the Magpies but they’re undefeated in nine domestic outings while the Cherries are coming off a 6-1 loss last time out.
Eddie Howe won’t be able to call upon his first-choice XI amid a flurry of injuries but the visitors should still be too strong for Andoni Iraola’s men, who have lost nine of their 11 league fixtures.
Our Prediction: 2-0 to Newcastle
Liverpool v Brentford
Sunday’s match-up at Anfield has the makings of a high-scoring affair.
Only four teams have generated more xG than the Bees in the top flight this term and it’s Jurgen Klopp side who lead the way in the fashionable metric.
Thomas Frank’s side have won three games in a row and the hosts will have to be wary of the threat posed by Bryan Mbeumo, who has six goals and two assists to his name already.
Liverpool’s potency is partially dependent on whether Darwin Nunez engages his unplayable mode or adopts his hungover Sunday League alter ego.
Saying that, Mohamed Salah has 12 goal contributions in 11 league outings and there’s a feeling of inevitability about the Egyptian at home to a mid-table team.
The Reds are partial to a 3-1 win this season and this feels like it could be another.
Our Prediction: 3-1 to Liverpool
West Ham v Nottingham Forest
A tough one here with the two teams separated by just one place and one point in the table.
The Hammers started the season well enough but three defeats on the spin have seen them drop into the bottom half.
Forest registered an impressive win over Aston Villa at the City Ground last weekend but their away form remains a concern.
No team have drawn as many league games as Steve Cooper’s mob this season, which leads us to…
Our Prediction: 1-1 draw
Chelsea v Manchester City
It’s hard to know what to read into Monday night’s game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
On one hand, the Blues beat the last remaining undefeated top flight side 4-1 in their own back garden.
But on the other, Spurs’ two red cards and ultra high line meant the contest was unlike any other in Premier League history – Mauricio Pochettino’s men actually made a meal of it for much of the second half in extremely favourable circumstances.
Amid the chaos of that fixture, the controversy of Newcastle v Arsenal, and Liverpool’s slip-up at Luton, Pep Guardiola’s side quietly reclaimed top spot with an easy home win over Bournemouth.
Of all a sudden, the treble winners are the league’s top scorers and boast the best defensive record – normal service has been ominously resumed.
