Premier League both teams to score prediction – games in focus
Manchester City vs Liverpool – Premier League's elite to put on a show
It's one of the more obvious and less flattering picks of the weekend, but Saturday's early kick-off between Man City and Liverpool is almost certain to bring about goals given its history and the calibre of players set to be on the pitch. There have only been two games in the past 13 meetings between the two sides which have failed to see both teams score.
While Erling Haaland was declared a slight doubt during the international break for this weekend's clash he will likely be fit enough to start alongside someone such as Julian Alvarez with the duo having scored 17 league goals between them, while Mohammed Salah and Darwin Nunez are forming a formidable partnership going forward, so don't be surprised if all four end up on the scoresheet.
Luton Town vs Crystal Palace – Defensive frailties to be exposed
These two have not met each other since 2007 which saw Crystal Palace run out 2-1 victors at home, however, now both in the Premier League and struggling to keep clean sheets, both managers may go with the idea of simply outscoring the other and accepting the fate of no clean sheet.
Palace have shipped nine goals in their past four games keeping just one clean sheet whereas Luton are yet to keep a clean sheet all season conceding 10 goals in their last five matches, so it would be a major shock for either of these teams to keep the ball out of their own net, especially with the clash being at the intimidating Kenilworth Road.
Newcastle United vs Chelsea – Unusual defence may cost the Magpies
Newcastle have lost just once at home all season conceding just three goals in the process with two of them coming in one game against Liverpool. However, with Fabian Schar and injury doubt, Sven Botman, Dan Burn and Lewis Hall all unavailable for the weekend's clash it appears to be a perfect chance for Chelsea to pick up a major three points.
Chelsea have not failed to score in a game since September 24 at home to high-flying Aston Villa. So, Mauricio Pochettino's side will be licking their lips at the thought of playing a patched-up Newcastle team who recently shipped two goals – and it should have been more – against a poor Bournemouth outfit.
Nottingham Forest vs Brighton – Stuttering defences on show at the City Ground
After a stunning season last time out and still performing admirably well in both Europe and the Premier League this campaign, Brighton are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league which is quite shocking, and the task could become a whole lot harder if Lewis Dunk is going to be unavailable once again.
Forest have also managed to score in every single home Premier League game this season and kept just one clean sheet at the City Ground so this game looks to be one of the safest bets of the weekend when it comes to both teams to score.
