EPL Matchday 14 Fixtures
Saturday 30th November & Sunday 1st December
- Newcastle United v Manchester City – Away Win – 1/6
Steve Bruce has got his Newcastle side in better shape of late and they did beat City at home last season, however I think City are in good shape heading into this one and with Bernardo Silva coming back, this should be an easy win for the visitors.
- Burnley v Crystal Palace – Home Win – 5/4
Burnley are a tough side to beat and have risen up the Premier League in recent weeks. Palace have been heading in the opposite direction after a tough run of games and Turf Moor is a tough place to go to try and arrest that slump.
- Chelsea v West Ham United – Home Win – 1/4
Despite losing at Manchester City last week, Chelsea acquitted themselves pretty well in that game and a home game against a side that are struggling for confidence and form should be the tonic that they need to get back to winning ways.
- Liverpool v Brighton – Home Win – 1/5
Brighton have given Liverpool some tricky games at Anfield in both recent and historic times, but Liverpool’s form is such that they should be confident of getting off to a good start in what will be a crucial period of games for them this week.
- Tottenham v Bournemouth – Home Win – 4/11
Jose Mourinho made a winning return to management last week with Spurs and saw his team win away in the Premier League for the first time since January. A home game against an inconsistent Bournemouth should ensure that Spurs pick up another three points here.
- Southampton v Watford – Home Win – 21/20
There’s no doubting that Southampton should have beaten Arsenal easily last weekend but some awful errors in the last third and a last gasp equaliser meant they only got a draw. This is a crucial game against bottom side Watford and one the Saints will feel is. a must win game and I feel that they will.
- Norwich City v Arsenal – Draw – 14/5
Norwich come into this game on the back of a morale boosting win over Everton, while Arsenal have not won in six EPL games and look a shadow of their true selves. This could be Norwich’s best chance to beat Arsenal but I just think the Gunners have enough quality in attack to salvage a draw.
- Wolves v Sheffield United – Draw – 12/5
These two teams have drawn a fair few games between them this season and both have proven very difficult to beat. Even so I would have picked Wolves here but for the fact they have a tough Europa league game on the Thursday night ahead of this, hence I am backing the Blades to pick up a point.
- Leicester City v Everton – Home Win – 13/20
Leicester City have hit a fantastic run of form at the moment winning all of their last five Premier League games, only conceding one goal in that run of games. Only Man Utd and Liverpool have beaten the Foxes this season and I can’t see an Everton side badly lacking form and confidence causing them any problems here.
- Manchester United v Aston Villa – Home Win – 9/20
A 3-3 draw last week earned United a point at Sheffield Utd but they should be confident of a more positive result here against an Aston Villa side that have struggled on the road in the Premier League this season. I can’t see too many goals being scored, but I do feel United will take the win.
EPL Matchday 15 Fixtures
Tuesday 3rd, Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th December
- Crystal Palace v Bournemouth – Home Win – 11/10
This is a big game for Palace against a side who tend to be very inconsistent away from home. Roy Hodgson’s team needs a win to arrest their slump and I think this game is their best opportunity to do that for a while.
- Burnley v Manchester City – Away Win – 1/5
Burnley gave Manchester City a real test last season, losing only 1-0 in a tight game and I think they will push City hard once again this season, but with little room to manoeuvre, I think City will just about do enough to claim the win.
- Chelsea v Aston Villa – Home Win – 2/7
Their second home game of the week and I think a second home win will follow for Frank Lampard’s team. Villa have a couple of very tough games coming up with a match against Liverpool also on the horizon and I can’t see them getting any joy at Stamford Bridge.
- Leicester City v Watford – Home Win – 4/11
The Foxes have another home game against lower league opponents in Watford and with the Hornets having just one win in the league this season, I can’t see them causing an upset against the most in form team in the division at the moment.
- Manchester United v Tottenham – Draw – 5/2
Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford to face his old club in what should be a cracking game on Wednesday night. Both teams badly need a win but I also feel there are enough problems in defence on both sides to ensure that this game is most likely to end in a draw.
- Southampton v Norwich City – Draw – 3/1
This is a crucial second game in a few days for Saints against a relegation rival at home and as such, it is a game both sides will feel is a must win game. I think Norwich offer more attacking threat than Watford and as such, I can’t quite see the Saints landing two wins in a row as I fancy a draw here.
- Wolves v West Ham – Home Win – 13/20
Wolves have been on an upwards trajectory after a slow start while West Ham have been in freefall for a few weeks on the back of five losses in six games. That is not good enough for this team and I think Wolves will make them pay for that here.
- Liverpool v Everton – Home Win – 1/3
The first Merseyside derby of the season sees two teams with very contrasting fortunes. Everton though have upset the form book in recent years to give Liverpool real headaches in these games and while they’d love to do so again, I still feel Liverpool will earn a strong win.
- Sheffield United v Newcastle – Home Win – 19/20
Newcastle’s fortunes do seem to depend on their strikers finding some form, but there is no sign of that as yet and I think as Sheffield United showed against Manchester United, they have the team spirit and skill to ensure they collect three points from this game.
- Arsenal v Brighton – Home Win – 8/15
This is the game where I think Arsenal, even if they have or have not sacked Unai Emery at this point, will claim a win. Brighton do struggle on the road at times against the bigger clubs and Arsenal are long, long overdue a win at home.
