Fixtures, facts & tips

Fulham vs Man United 

Fulham's battle for survival might well come down to the results they get at home against the sides around them in the table. As such, this seems like a free swing for them against a Man United side rejuvenated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Fulham's last home match saw them come from behind to win 4-2 against Brighton, while Man United ground out a 1-0 win at Leicester in the last round of matches.

FUTAA FACT: Eight of Aleksandar Mitrovic's EPL goals this season have come at home. 

FUTAA  TIP: Back Mitrovic & both teams to score ✅

Crystal Palace vs West Ham United

Palace's 2-0 win over Fulham last time out was achieved without star man Wilfried Zaha, who returns to the fold here. It's impossible to know what you're going to get from West Ham, who held then-leaders Liverpool to a draw in midweek but have lost four on the bounce away from home. Crystal Palace will fancy a win in a possibly low-scoring affair here.

FUTAA FACT: West Ham hasn't won four consecutive London derbies since 1996.

FUTAA  TIP: Back Palace to win 🔥

Huddersfield vs Arsenal 

Huddersfield's quest to stay in the Premier League look doomed, with Jan Siewert's side 14 points adrift of safety. Their visitors, Arsenal, are still in the hunt for a top-four finish even after their hammering at the hands of Man City last time out. The Gunners have to win this sort of game comfortably to retain their European ambitions. 

FUTAA FACT: Seven of Alex Lacazette's nine EPL goals this season have been winners.

FUTAA  TIP: Back Arsenal to win & Lacazette to score ✅
>> [bet now]

Liverpool vs Bournemouth 

Klopp's men have faltered in recent weeks, dropping points against Leicester and West Ham, with injuries starting to take their toll on the Anfield outfit. Bournemouth's contrasting form has seen them hammer Chelsea and then lose to Cardiff, making them an unpredictable proposition here. Liverpool can go top with a win, and that should be incentive enough for them to scrape a win here.

FUTAA FACT: Sadio Mane is gunning to score in a fourth successive game within the same season for the first time.

FUTAA  TIP: Back Liverpool to win & under 2.5 goals ✅
>> [bet now]

Southampton vs Cardiff 

The Saints are not yet out of the woods, despite having gone unbeaten in their last five EPL matches under new management. Cardiff is only two points behind them and in the relegation zone and hampered by a highly emotional couple of weeks. Six of the last eleven head to heads have been 1-0 wins to either side, and that is a good bet this time around again.

FUTAA FACT: Cardiff hasn't won consecutive matches in the top flight since 1962.

FUTAA  TIP: Back a Southampton win & under 2.5 goals ✅
>> [bet now]

Watford vs Everton

Watford had goalkeeper Ben Foster to thank for their goalless draw against Brighton after the Englishman produced a string of fine saves. The Hornets have a fine record at home in the Premier League and have won their last three matches Vicarage Road. With Everton struggling away from home and Watford's last two home matches ending in draws, it's tough to separate the sides.

FUTAA FACT: Watford has never won three successive home games against the same opponent in the top flight. 

FUTAA  TIP: Back a draw & under 2.5 goals 🔥
>> [bet now]

Brighton vs Burnley

Brighton lost three matches in a row before a goalless draw against Watford, hardly the form of a team on the up. Now only five points clear of safety, there should be an incentive for them to find some urgency and get a win. Burnley is unbeaten in five matches and dragged themselves out of the relegation zone. 

FUTAA FACT: Burnley's Chris Wood has scored five in his last eight league starts against Brighton. 

FUTAA  TIP: Back under 2.5 goals ✅
>> [bet now]

Tottenham vs Leicester

Sunday's action starts with Tottenham, a side that curiously is yet to draw a match this season, winning 19 and losing six. They remain in the title race, after Son Heung-min's late winner against Newcastle last time out, but they have to win here to keep those faint hopes alive. Three of Leicester's last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals, so we don't expect fireworks here.

FUTAA FACT: Son Heung-min has had a hand in five goals in his last two starts against Leicester.

FUTAA  TIP: Back Tottenham to win & under 2.5 goals ✅
>> [bet now]

Man City vs Chelsea

The defending Champions will be high on confidence after wins against Arsenal and, most recently, Everton which propelled them to the top of the tree. Chelsea's form has been inconsistent with losses to Arsenal and Bournemouth, and then a hammering of bottom club Huddersfield. 

FUTAA FACT: Chelsea is unbeaten in their last seven matches against City.

FUTAA  TIP: Back both teams to score ✅
>> [bet now]

Wolves vs Newcastle

Newcastle has lost their last two matches on the road and that doesn't bode well, against Wolves who are in the hunt for a European place and with two successive home wins to their name. Wolves have scored at least three times in their last two home games and they look set to continue their winning run at Molineux. 

FUTAA FACT: Raul Jimenez has scored nine EPL goals and is gunning to be only second Mexican to notch ten in a season, after West Ham's Chicharito. 

FUTAA  TIP: Back Wolves to win & Jimenez to score in a match with under 2.5 goals ✅
