Arsenal vs Crystal Palace: Premier League predictions

  • The Premier League’s strange winter break continues, and Arsenal is hoping to bounce back after losing three games in a row. They haven’t won in four matches, three of which were in the Premier League. It all started with a draw against Liverpool and being knocked out of the FA Cup. After Christmas, they lost two more games to West Ham and Fulham.
  • Crystal Palace, on the other hand, broke their eight-game losing streak in the Premier League by winning against Brentford. During their tough run, they lost five games but managed to draw with West Ham, Manchester City, and Brighton. They also had a draw in the FA Cup against Everton, and now they need to replay before facing Arsenal.
  • The outcome of this match is almost determined even before it kicks off. The main curiosity lies in the number of goals Arsenal, the home team will secure, and the overall goal tally. Arsenal is in excellent form, holding fourth place in the English Premier League standings.

Brentford vs Nottingham Forest

Time: 17:30 UTC

Venue: Brentford Community Stadium

Brentford vs Nottingham Forest: Premier League predictions this weekend

  • In recent matches, Brentford has struggled to secure a victory, going winless in their last six games. Despite this, they have consistently found the back of the net in all four of these matches. However, their defensive record leaves much to be desired, as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last ten outings. Additionally, Brentford faces challenges with discipline, accumulating a significant yellow card count of 39. The team is further hindered by injuries, with seven key players, including Ivan Toney and Rico Henry, sidelined.
  • On the other hand, Nottingham Forest enters the match with a more positive streak, remaining undefeated in their last three games. They have showcased offensive prowess by scoring two or more goals in three consecutive matches and have found the back of the net in each of their last ten games. Despite their goal-scoring capabilities, Nottingham Forest has encountered disciplinary issues, receiving three red cards, attributed to Joe Worrall, Moussa Niakhate, and Willy Boly. Similar to Brentford, they also have a substantial yellow card count, totaling 45. As both teams prepare to face each other, Nottingham Forest holds a slight advantage in the standings, occupying one place and one point above Brentford.

Pick: Both teams to score

Odds: 1.75

  • Conversely, Sheffield United has struggled on home turf, suffering defeat in 7 of their last 10 Premier League matches played at their stadium.

Bournemouth vs Liverpool

Date: Sunday, January 21, 2024

Time: 16:30 UTC

Venue: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth

  • The Cherries have shown significant improvement in recent weeks and currently hold the 12th position, trailing mid-table by a slim three-point margin. They express confidence in their ability to make a meaningful impact this season and aim to enhance their standing further. Securing a positive outcome against the current top team in the league would greatly reinforce this belief. Bournemouth has consistently faced challenges against Liverpool, suffering defeat in nine out of their last 10 encounters. The most recent encounter resulted in a 2-1 scoreline on Liverpool’s visit to the South Coast in November during the Carabao Cup.
  • To contend with the formidable Liverpool team, Bournemouth needs an exceptional performance, although previous displays suggest a closely contested match. The hosts must execute with precision to capitalize on opportunities, especially in midfield confrontations, where Liverpool’s dynamic department clashes with opponents who prefer physical dominance. Despite the anticipated thrill, Liverpool is expected to emerge as the winner, regardless of the availability of a full-strength squad.
  • Our best bet is on a total of over 2.5 goals. In the previous four matches across all competitions, Liverpool has successfully netted more than two goals. Over the course of Bournemouth’s last five matches in various competitions, there has been a scoring of over 2.5 goals.

Pick: Total Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 1.49

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Wolverhampton

Date: Monday, January 22, 2024

Time: 19:45 UTC

Venue: AMEX Stadium, Brighton

  • The gameweek concludes with a Monday night match at the AMEX Stadium, where Wolves will face Brighton. Gary O’Neil’s Wanderers have accumulated the second-highest number of points in their last six games, surpassed only by Liverpool. On the other hand, Brighton holds the seventh position and is currently involved in Europa League and FA Cup runs.
  • Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers currently occupies the 11th spot in the league standings and aims to enhance their position through a victory. This upcoming match poses a challenging test for both teams, promising an engaging and thrilling spectacle. Wolverhampton has maintained an unbeaten streak in six out of their seven most recent matches across all competitions. However, they have conceded at least one goal in each of their last ten away matches in various competitions.

Pick: Brighton to win

Odds: 1.63
