This week's Premier League fixtures

Bournemouth vs Liverpool (Sat)

Bournemouth gave us a 43/20 winner in the midweek Premier League tips with more goals in the first half although they were fortunate to beat Huddersfield, who outshot their opponents 23-6 and had 67% possession in a 2-1 defeat.

The Cherries have the highest percentage for both teams to score when they play at home (75%) and although Liverpool have the most clean sheets in the Premier League this season, we think they'll concede against one of the best attacks for creating chances.

The first of our Premier League predictions is for Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 21/10.

Feature match previews for this weekend

If you're interested in tips on our feature matches for the weekend, check out our in-depth previews below:

Arsenal vs Huddersfield (Sat)

The Gunners trounced Huddersfield 5-0 in last season's fixture and are 2/7 favourites to win and extend their unbeaten run to 21 games across all competitions following Wednesday's 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

Town were unlucky to lose at Bournemouth on Tuesday and so the next of our Premier League tips is for Arsenal to win and both teams to score at 37/20.

Twelve of the Gunners' 15 matches have seen goals at both ends which has been the case in five of Huddersfield's seven games on the road.

Burnley vs Brighton (Sat)

Both matches between these teams finished 0-0 last season and the odds on under 2.5 goals are 11/20, but we suspect there will be goals at Turf Moor this weekend.

The Clarets dropped into the relegation zone with a dispiriting 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last weekend and were then beaten 3-1 by Liverpool on Wednesday but this is a match Sean Dyche will view as one to get their season back on track.

Nine of their 15 matches have produced three goals or more and the same is true of Brighton's last three games on the road, so take the 29/20 on over 2.5 goals.

Cardiff vs Southampton

We had a 14/1 winner on Cardiff beating Wolves from behind last week but with Southampton appointing Ralph Hasenhuttl as their new manager on Wednesday to replace Mark Hughes, this match looks a tough one to call.

Saints dropped into the bottom three last weekend and extended their winless run in the Premier League to 11 games on Wednesday with a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham, where they hit the crossbar three times.

Whether the former Leipzig boss will be able to impose his hard-pressing game in time to see off Cardiff remains to be seen, so the next of our football tips for the weekend at 9/10 is for both teams to score which has been the case in five of the Bluebirds' eight home games.

Manchester United vs Fulham

Last season this would have seemed a home banker but with United lurching from one crisis to another, it is far from guaranteed.

United twice hit back to earn an entertaining 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday, with manager Jose Mourinho praising the "big soul" of his team.

Fulham equalled a club record 19 top-flight games without a clean sheet in a 1-1 draw with Leicester and although they look to have improved under Claudio Ranieri, we still expect a United win and under 3.5 goals in the match at 5/4.

Only one of United's six home games have produced four goals or more and we're not expecting a cricket score against a Fulham team that threatened briefly at Chelsea last weekend without actually scoring.

This weekend's best bets

If you're interested in accumulators or in-play betting, check out our regular betting columns:

West Ham vs Crystal Palace (Sat)

West Ham were impressive against Cardiff on Tuesday on the same evening that Palace lost 3-1 to a Brighton team that had Shane Duffy sent off in the 28th minute.

The Seagulls were much the better side when the teams had an equal number of players and even with a man down they increased their lead through substitutes Leon Balogun and Florin Andone before Luka Milivojevic pulled one back from the spot nine minutes from time.

The Hammers will be without Marko Arnautovic with a suspected hamstring injury which will rule him out of the festive period but his deputy Lucas Perez scored twice within 10 minutes of coming on. With his confidence high we fancy the buoyant east Londoners, chasing a third successive win, to come out on top at 13/10.

Chelsea vs Manchester City

Only Everton have kept a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea have won five and drawn three of their Premier League games this season.

However, the Blues lost 2-1 at Wolves on Wednesday and we suspect their unbeaten home record is about to go up in smoke against the Premier League leaders, who have won five and drawn two of their seven games on the road.

City have conceded in four of their last five matches and so an away win and both teams to score gets our vote at 47/20.

Leicester vs Tottenham

Tottenham no longer have the best percentage for points taken away from home following their 4-2 defeat at north London rivals Arsenal but they have won more games on the road than any other team.

Spurs have taken three points from seven of their nine away matches, while Leicester have lost all three of their matches against the top six, all of which involved goals at both ends.

The next of our Premier League tips at 11/4 is for Spurs to win and both teams to score which has occurred in three of their last five matches.

Newcastle vs Wolves (Sun)

Newcastle's three-match winning streak was ended spectacularly by West Ham last weekend but they bounced back with a 1-1 draw at Everton on Wednesday, the same night that Wolves ended a poor run of results with a shock 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

The Magpies are one of only four clubs not to have drawn at home this season, but a share of the spoils is the next of our Premier League tips at 21/10.

Everton vs Watford

Everton have won four of their last five home games and are 4/5 to make it five from six against a Watford team that dropped into the lower half of the table with Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat by Manchester City - their third successive loss.

The Hornets were outclassed for most of the game although Abdoulaye Doucoure's 85th-minute goal led to a nervy finish. The Toffees have won this fixture for the last two seasons and we fancy them to win and under 4.5 goals at 21/20 to round off our Premier League preview.
