Pick 1. Man Utd (10/11) to win v West Ham
Ralf Rangnick earned a much-needed Premier League win in charge of Manchester United when they ran out 1-3 winners at Brentford last time out. The result ended a mini two-game winless streak and the Red Devils are now seeking to register back-to-back wins under Rangnick’s leadership for only the second time.
History is somewhat on United’s side. They’ve picked up all three points in 20 of their previous 25 home meetings with West Ham. On top of that, current Hammers boss David Moyes — who infamously succeeded legendary Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson — has never won at Old Trafford while sitting in the away dugout.
Pick 2. Wolves (6/4) to win v Brentford
Three wins across their previous four Premier League outings has lifted Wolves into eighth spot and Bruno Lage’s men now seek to carry that momentum into this latest round of fixtures.
Their immediate objective is a third-straight league win, and they will fancy their chances as Brentford visit Molineux on the back of losing five of their last six league matches. Ivan Toney and company will also need to be on their A game as Wolves have conceded just twice across five recent home fixtures.
Pick 3. Man City (2/7) to win v Southampton
If there’s a word to describe Manchester City at the moment, it’s ‘relentless’. Pep Guardiola’s defending champions sit clear atop of the Premier League table with a chance to make it 13 wins on the bounce. During this current winning streak they’d net 34 goals while conceding seven times. Unbeaten in their last 10 road games, and only dropping points at Liverpool (2-2) last October, the Mancunians have won nine of their previous 11 matches against Southampton.
Pick 4. Arsenal (4/11) to win v Burnley
Mikel Arteta needs to pick up his players following their disappointing EFL Cup semi-final elimination at the hands of Liverpool. On the bright side, Arsenal’s recent Premier League form is encouraging. Prior to a narrow 1-2 loss to City, they had strung together a four-game winning streak, in which the Gunners bagged 14 goals while shipping in one. They’ve also won five of their last six Emirates games. Burnley meanwhile have only tasted one away day success in this season’s competition.
Pick 5. Liverpool (11/20) to win v Crystal Palace
Liverpool snapped a three-game winless streak when they comfortably ran out 3-0 winners over Brentford last time out. However, that aforementioned miserable run (one loss and two draws), has seen them start to lose ground on Manchester City. Jurgen Klopp’s side have failed to win any of their previous three away games, but they’re on a nine-game winning streak against Crystal Palace, including a 3-0 success in the reverse fixture.
