PL correct score betting this weekend – Tips and predictions

Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool (13/2)

On Saturday lunchtime, Liverpool return to the scene of one of their most devastating results in PL history, in a season that marks a decade since “Crystanbul”. We can't see a repeat result here though, with Palace struggling to get score one goal a game at the minute, never mind three.

Roy Hodgson is seemingly on his last legs as Crystal Palace boss, and a large reason for that is his side's poor home record. The Eagles haven't won at home since early September, while their opponents have lost away from Anfield just once this season – and that was in very controversial circumstances, when they were down to nine men at Spurs.

Palace lost 2-0 at home to Bournemouth on Wednesday night while Liverpool won 2-0 away at Sheffield United. Continuing with that theme, we expect another 2-0 away win on Saturday.

Manchester United 2-1 Bournemouth (7/1)

After a poor start to the season, Bournemouth have turned things around in recent weeks, picking up ten points in their last four league matches. Iraola's men will subsequently head to Old Trafford full of confidence. But so, undoubtedly, will Manchester United, after their best performance of an otherwise unimpressive season came in midweek against Chelsea.

The win over Chelsea should instill some much-needed confidence in the United squad, which will only make things more difficult for Bournemouth on Saturday. Man Utd have won the last three H2Hs too, and we expect them to make that four on Saturday with a 2-1 victory – the same score by which they beat Chelsea on Wednesday.

Aston Villa 2-1 Arsenal (10/1)

The most exciting game of the weekend comes from Villa Park, as leaders Arsenal take on third-placed Aston Villa. Unai Emery's team have been incredible at home all season with seven wins from seven league matches at Villa Park, scoring 24 goals in the process. Their victory over Manchester City on Wednesday was impressive not only by result but by performance too.

Arsenal will go into the match riding a wave of momentum after another late winner against Luton on Tuesday so they should fare better than City. Despite Villa's great start to the season, they have still been conceding goals and it would be a shock if they kept the Gunners out just three days after keeping Haaland and co quiet.

It's impossible to look past Aston Villa's home record here though, and we expect them to edge out Arsenal with both teams to score.

Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle (13/2)

Tottenham face Newcastle in the pick of Sunday's Premier League fixtures in a clash between two injury-ravaged squads. If both teams were at full strength we'd lean more towards 2-2 rather than 1-1, but there is some serious firepower missing with the likes of James Maddison and Callum Wilson both unavailable for their respective clubs.

Despite all the injuries, the two sides are evenly matched and have still managed some good performances of late – Tottenham away at Man City and Newcastle at home to Man Utd. They both suffered bruising defeats in midweek so there will be some fragile minds and legs out there.
