Sunday’s Premier League predictions including Fulham vs. Liverpool

Southampton vs. Sheff Utd

Another unwanted Premier League record awaits Sheffield United this weekend should they fail to beat Southampton at St Mary’s.

The Blades are without a win in 11 matches this campaign and are bottom of the division, while the Saints returned to winning ways last time out to climb into fifth place.

We say: Southampton 2-0 Sheffield United

United came close to taking a point off Leicester last weekend, but it ultimately proved to be a familiar story as they slipped to a sixth defeat in a row.

Southampton are flying high in fifth and will be confident of improving on, or at least consolidating, that position with three points on Sunday.

On the basis of the sides’ recent form and previous encounters, there is little to suggest that United can pull off an upset here.

Crystal Palace vs. Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to keep hold of top spot in the Premier League come the end of the weekend as they make the trip to London rivals Crystal Palace.

Spurs enter matchday 11 in first place, level on points with reigning champions Liverpool and two in front of Chelsea, following a run of 10 top-flight games without defeat.

Palace head into Sunday’s match at Selhurst Park on the back of a morale-boosting 5-1 win over West Bromwich Albion last time out, a win that moved them up to 11th place.

We say: Crystal Palace 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs are unbeaten in eight away league matches since early July, winning five of those and keeping a clean sheet in each of the last three.

Palace returned to winning ways last time out but they tend to struggle in this fixture and we are going with a routine Spurs win.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Fulham vs. Liverpool

Champions Liverpool travel to Craven Cottage on Sunday to take on a Fulham side hovering just one place and one point above the relegation zone.

The Cottagers were beaten 2-0 by Manchester City last time out and now face another of the Premier League’s big-hitters, with Liverpool going into the weekend sitting joint-top of the table.

We say: Fulham 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool’s away form is the only thing which has prevented them from taking control of this season’s title race so far, but this looks like a good fixture for them on paper with Fulham not faring too well at home either.

There will be fans back inside Craven Cottage for the first time since March, which should give Parker’s men a much-needed boost, but it is still a big ask for them to get anything against the champions.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Arsenal vs. Burnley

Arsenal will be aiming to kickstart their Premier League campaign when they welcome Burnley to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Gunners enter the weekend’s games down in 15th, just three places better off than Burnley in the final relegation spot.

We say: Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

Arsenal are seemingly setting another new unwanted record on a weekly basis this season and know that this is as close to a must-win game as it gets.

They have taken one point from the last 12 on offer in the Premier League and have lost three in a row on home soil.

Burnley have themselves struggled this term and have never come away from the Emirates Stadium with a point, so we are backing the Gunners to end their disappointing run.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Leicester vs. Brighton

Leicester City play host to Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday evening looking for the victory which would keep them in the top four of the Premier League table.

Meanwhile, the Seagulls make the trip to the King Power Stadium sitting in 16th position, four points clear of the relegation zone.

We say: Leicester City 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

Although Rodgers took the opportunity to rest players on Thursday night, Brighton may play with an extra sharpness during the opening hour of this contest. Nevertheless, we still expect the Foxes to prevail, potentially through a late goal.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
