Wolves have slipped to 2nd in the table as Sheffield United won away at Leeds. They will be looking to return to the top with a win here and look well placed to do so away at QPR. They have won 4 out of the last 6 games and held Man City to a draw. QPR have drawn 4 out of the last 6 and languish 17th in the table. They may be at home but Wolves have far too much quality here.
Bournemouth are a side always looking to put up a fight against the big clubs and they almost managed against Man City. They’ve come into form in recent weeks but confidence appears frail and goals are just starting to enter their game. Chelsea appear to have turned a corner after the Palace defeat but miss the protection offered by Kante. They have Hazard and Morata back and Batshuayi scored a much needed couple off the bench. This should be an interesting game and BTTS is likely but the away side should take it.
Watford have had some tough games already this season and have contested in the majority of them. Their form is good and should be would be better if they had more clinical finishing. They are 6th in the league and face a side battling against relegation. Stoke have lost 5 out of the last 6 and look poor. Goals are hard to come by and the once fearsome defence is a shadow of it’s former self. Watford are full of confidence and should win comfortably here.
Wolves have invested heavily over summer and it’s starting come to fruition. They have won 4 out of the last 5 games and are top of the Championship table. Preston are 5th in the league and are unbeaten in the last 5 games. They’ve drawn 3 times in that period and lack the flair and creativity to get those winning goals. Wolves are at home and high on confidence.
Bristol have a great home record this season and are facing a Leeds side who are yet to recover from their defeat against Millwall. Bristol are 4th in the table unbeaten in their last 5 fixtures. Leeds have lost 4 out of the last 5 and have put in some shocking performances. An away trip to Bristol looks a bridge too far for Leeds right now.
Stoke are coming off a 7-2 thrashing with a point to prove. They scored 2 goals against City but were undone by some phenominal play. They have a good home record generally but languish near the bottom of the table. Bournemouth are in the bottom 3 and haven’t been scoring enough goals. Their open style of play leaves them vulnerable at the back and if they are not creating chances they will struggle. Neither side is in good form but the home advantage should secure the win here.
Villa have finally turned it round under Bruce and have won 4 out of the last 5 fixtures. The money they’ve spent is also bearing fruit and they look a real force climbing up the table. Fulham are a tough side to predict with vastly differing performances. They have won 2 out of the last 5 with 2 draws and a defeat. The in form home side should get it done here.
West Ham have a weak defence but recent results have improved. They are goal shy, but key attacking players are returning from injury. Burnley are 6th in the table but have scored an average of 1 goal per game. Their record at home isn’t as good this season as sides are happy to sit back and attack them. Burnley are a side that lack imagination and goals. This game could very well be a stalemate with a point agreeable to both sides. Read our Burnley v West Ham football betting tips here .
Swansea are in the relegation places and are struggling for goals. Bony and Sanchez are yet to have the impact many expected and they have been unable to turn solid defensive performances into points. Huddersfield started off well but Premier League sides have adapted quickly. They’ve also struggled to score goals recently and lack quality in certain areas. This game is likley to be a defensive match, with both sides looking impotent in front of goal. Read our Swansea v Huddersfield football betting tips here.
Brentford have drawn 3 of the last 5 games and are out of the relegation zone on goal differences. Millwall have climbed to 14th with just 1 defeat in the last 5 games. Neither side are prolific goalscorers with just over 1 goal per game. The home advantage puts Brentford on an even footing with a side in better form. Honours even.
Leeds currently sit 4th in the table and a win would take them second. They’ve had 2 defeats against strong physical sides but have played better against sides willing to play football against them. Sheffield Wednesday are under pressure as they languish near the bottom of the table with the players and manager feeling the brunt of the fans frustration. Leeds are in better form and the pressure could see the home side capitulate.
Arsenal have done well at home this season and are usually good against newly promoted sides. Brighton will look to be organised but they will face fierce pressure from the Arsenal possession. Lacazette and Sanchez are the two players likely to make the difference here. Read more Arsenal v Brighton football betting tips.
Everton played midweek and had a disappointing result against Apollon. They look shy on confidence and the defence keeps making rudimentary mistakes. Calvert-Lewin is a good young player but is struggling to lead the line and it’s hard to see who will score against an organised Burnley defence. The away side have the edge at the back and will be able to play counter-attacking football. This game seems to fall perfectly into their plans, now they just need to execute.

Liverpool should be able to beat Newcastle with both Mane and Coutinho returning to the fold. They are a shambles at the back but have all the firepower they need. Newcastle should be able to grab a goal against the weak back line, but don’t have enough in form goalscorers to really make it count. Read more Newcastle v Liverpool football betting tips.
