This week's Premier League fixtures

Fulham vs Manchester United

Fulham were 3-0 down by half-time at Old Trafford earlier in the season and the worst defence in the Premier League is again expected to have problems against Manchester United, who have enjoyed a huge improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have generally come flying out of the blocks under the Norwegian and the Red Devils to win and over 2.5 goals kicks off our Premier League tips.

Crystal Palace vs West Ham

West Ham have been inconsistent of late, taking four points off Arsenal and Liverpool either side of defeats at Bournemouth and Wolves.

Palace's results have proved almost as tricky to predict so instead we'll focus on goals and with Palace having more options up front than they've had for a while, we expect both teams to score at 4/5.

Huddersfield vs Arsenal

Arsenal are the only team in the Premier League this season yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels but this is the perfect opportunity to end that unwanted statistic, with Huddersfield only managing five goals at home all season.

None of those goals came against any of the top six and they are yet to take a point off the Premier League's elite this season so another defeat without scoring is the obvious pick at 9/5.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Whether it is nerves kicking in or not, Liverpool have failed to hit top gear in recent weeks and have looked more vulnerable in defence than earlier in the season.

Bournemouth's games average 3.24 goals this season and only one of their 25 matches has produced fewer than two goals. They were thrashed 4-0 at home by the Reds in December and another high-scoring game is expected at Anfield so over 3.5 goals is the selection at 11/10.

Southampton vs Cardiff

Nathan Redmond's goal looked to have secured victory for Southampton at Burnley last weekend but a late Ashley Barnes penalty meant they had to settle for a point in Lancashire.

That was Redmond's sixth goal in all competitions though since Ralph Hasenhuttl took over and we like the BetStars Odds Boost of 7/2 for Redmond to score and Saints to beat Cardiff, who have lost nine of their 12 away games.

Watford vs Everton

We were happy to oppose Everton last week and were duly rewarded with an 11/5 winner after tipping Wolves to win at Goodison Park, and there is little to suggest their poor run will end at Watford.

Marco Silva's men needed a last-gasp equaliser to rescue a point against his former club in December and Watford's only defeats since then have been against Chelsea and Tottenham. Watford are 5/4 for the win but we're being more ambitious and taking the BetStars Odds Boost of 27/10 for Watford to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

Brighton vs Burnley

There have been late equalisers in Burnley's last two games and that is now three successive draws for the Clarets, who are unbeaten in six matches as they scrap for survival.

Brighton are only three points above their visitors after just one win in their last 10 games and both teams may have to settle for a share of the spoils.

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:

Tottenham vs Leicester

Tottenham may still be without Harry Kane but the goals of Heung Min Son have kept them in the title race and he has played a vital role since his return from the Asian Cup.

The South Korean was the hero with late winners against Watford and Newcastle and can be backed at 2/1 to score in another victory here at home to a Leicester team that have lost four of their last six.

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Defending champions Manchester City are not finding things quite as easy this season but they would once again be runaway leaders if only the first half of matches counted.

Pep Guardiola's men are comfortably the strongest team in the first 45 minutes and with Chelsea struggling for consistency, we're happy to include City to be leading at both half-time and full-time in our Premier League predictions.

Wolves vs Newcastle

Wolves are well on course for a top-seven finish after three successive wins during which time they have scored 10 goals, although they have kept only one clean sheet in their last eight games and conceded twice before eventually getting past Shrewsbury 3-2 in their FA Cup replay on Tuesday.

Newcastle have only failed to score in three of their 15 matches against teams currently in the top half of the table but Wolves look to have the extra quality in their squad so the home team to win and both teams to score at 17/5 completes our Premier League predictions this weekend.
