Premier League correct score betting: Chasing pack to close on the Reds

Our Premier League correct score betting tips feature the three title chasers Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal.

The Reds have a narrow one-point lead over City and Arsenal, but the chasing pair are hot on the Merseysiders' heels. To add further pressure to Liverpool, they travel to Nottingham Forest with 12 first-team players out or doubtful following their quest for a coveted quadruple.

Will Arsenal and the Citizens continue to keep the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s high-flying side this weekend? Or can the injury-struck Reds hold their nerve atop the Premier League table?

Premier League correct score betting: Our weekend picks

Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool: Liverpool to win 2-1 @ 17/2

Nottingham Forest’s new manager bounce under Nuno Espirito Santo has lacked the desired spring. Since the Portuguese’s appointment in December, the Midlands outfit have won just three of nine league matches and lost five.

Such form has led to Forest’s fall down the Premier League table, and they are now just four points above the relegation places.

There is no let up for Espirito Santo’s side as table toppers Liverpool head to the City Ground on Saturday. Liverpool are brimming with confidence after winning the EFL Cup final last weekend, edging Chelsea 1-0 after extra time. Klopp’s high-achieving side are also fighting for the Premier League title and are still in the FA Cup and Europa League hunt.

Ultimately, hard-to-beat form has been fundamental to the Reds’ success this season, and they have lost just four matches all season. Liverpool have also won 12 of their last 14 in all competitions, breeding positivity and confidence.

Forest and Liverpool are in contrasting form, so it's hard to go against the visitors in this clash. Even without 12 first-team players, Liverpool has strength in depth, exemplified by a 3-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday, and the visitors can edge Forest.

Man City vs Man United: Man City to win 3-1 @ 10/1

Man City have been relentless on all fronts recently, leading to an 18-match unbeaten run, with 16 victories in this spell.

The Citizens have returned to full strength recently, and recent returnees Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland have elevated Pep Guardiola’s side to another level. Confidence was flowing in City’s thrashing of Luton on Wednesday, leading to a dominant 6-2 FA Cup victory where Haaland scored five and De Bruyne set up three.

However, Guardiola’s side has shown different sides to their game recently, which stands them in good stead for the Premier League run-in. Narrow 1-0 wins over Bournemouth and Brentford before the Luton win showcased City’s ability to grind out important results.

While City go from strength to strength, Man United’s struggle for consistency rumbles on. Erik Ten Hag’s side looked like they turned a corner with a five-match winning run before a grounding 2-1 home loss to Fulham provided a reality check for the top four chasers.

United then scraped past Forest with a 1-0 win in the FA Cup thanks to an 89th-minute Casemiro header in a cagey affair.

The Red Devils may head to the Etihad on Sunday with trepidation too, having conceded 12 goals and lost in their last three visits, and a rampant City is backed to keep their unbeaten run rolling.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal: Arsenal to win 3-0 @ 13/2

Sheffield United have struggled to claw themselves off the bottom of the Premier League and are 11 points from safety. The Blades’ chances of securing top-flight safety have been hampered after seven defeats in 10 and 26 goals conceded.

Title-chasing Arsenal travel to Yorkshire on Monday as one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League. The Gunners have taken maximum points from their last six matches and hit the net 25 times during this run.

Mikel Arteta’s side has also shown ruthlessness on the road since returning from the winter break in January. A 2-1 win at Forest was followed by emphatic victories at West Ham (6-0) and Burnley (5-0).

With Arsenal hitting top form and Sheffield United lacking confidence and quality, another commanding road win for the North Londoners is anticipated.
