Newcastle v Wolves: Draw but Both Teams to Score - 3/1

Newcastle United host Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James Park this Friday. The Magpies are looking to bounce back from the brutal second-half display at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and their recent form of three straight losses.

Wolves, on the other hand, go into the tie having won 2 - 1 against Aston Villa, and a promising three wins in their last five games.

The Friday night clash has a high likelihood of resulting in a draw, with five of the last six meetings between the clubs ending in a stalemate.

However, both teams are also likely to score, with the last six games between Wolves and The Magpies seeing goals at both ends of the pitch. Wolves’ last two matches had both teams scoring and both teams scored in three of the last five of Newcastle’s games.

Everton v Manchester United: United to win - 3/4

17th placed Everton host Manchester United at Goodison Park in desperate need of all three points, especially after the 3 - 2 loss to Burnley in the midweek clash.

The loss to The Clarets widened the gap to Leeds to five points and allowed Burnley to close their gap to The Toffees to a single point. Everton have marginally better home form compared to their away form, but have only won one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Manchester United.

Manchester United also need the three points in order to keep themselves in the race for Champions League places. The Red Devils will still be favourites to win despite only two wins in their last five games.

However, there is a high likelihood for both teams to score as in spite of Everton’s poor form, United have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four games.

Aston Villa v Tottenham: Kane to Score & Spurs to win - 12/5

Tottenham climbed back into the top four of the Premier League after their 5 - 1 thrashing of Newcastle and Arsenal’s 3 - 0 defeat to Crystal Palace.

Aston Villa make the trip to London off the back of three defeats in a row. The Villans sit somewhat comfortably in the mid-table, only a point behind Crystal Palace and Leicester.

Though Harry Kane did not score against Newcastle, the striker still has 12 goals for the season making him the fourth top scorer in the league. Especially when paired with frontline partner, Heung-min Son, Harry Kane remains a big threat to any team. The pair have 37 goal combinations in the Premier League, the most of any pair.

Kane will be looking to retain the golden boot and therefore will be dangerous against an Aston Villa who have only kept nine clean sheets this season.

Norwich City v Burnley: Under 1.5 goals - 7/4

Norwich welcomes fellow relegation candidates Burnley to Carrow Road this Sunday. Norwich’s survival hopes are all but dead, with The Canaries seven points from safety and no wins in their last five. In fact, Norwich have only won four games this season.

Burnley will be feeling a little more confident in their survival prospects this season after the midweek victory over struggling Everton.

Burnley have won two of the last four meetings between the clubs, Norwich winning one and the last game being a 0 - 0 draw in October.

The game is likely to be low-scoring, with both teams struggling in that aspect this season. Norwich find themselves bottom of the league for goals scored, with Burnley in 19th place.

The Canaries have only 18 goals this season, with an average of 0.60 goals per match. The Clarets have not fared much better. Burnley have 25 goals this season with an average of 0.86 goals per match.

Manchester City v Liverpool - Draw with both teams to score - 10/3

Manchester City meets Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium for a potentially title-deciding fixture. Both teams come into the clash with convincing wins in the Champions League - City beating Atletico Madrid 1 - 0 and Liverpool cruising to a 3 - 1 win over Benfica.

10 of the last 29 meetings between the two clubs resulted in a draw, including the tie at Anfield earlier in the season - that game-ending 2 - 2. Despite Liverpool having the head to head advantage, with 12 wins to City’s seven, both teams have scored 44 goals in the 29 games.

Both teams are highly likely to score on Sunday, with Liverpool only failing to score in one match this season and City failing to score in two.

Liverpool and Manchester City also top the scoring charts in the Premier League, Liverpool scoring 77 and City scoring 77. The Reds score an average of 2.57 goals per match while City score 2.33 goals per match.
