Well, while we correctly predicted the results of most games last week, we didn’t hit with our correct score predictions.

That’s a little annoying, especially given that on a few of them we just needed a goal to go in for one of the teams to make it a winner.

This weekend sees the Manchester derby taking place at Old Trafford. Manchester United and Manchester City clash fresh from key wins in the Champions League in midweek and both are also desperate for three points to enhance their Premier League ambitions.

City are two points behind Spurs at the top of the table, while United are in 8th position and in need of a win to close the gap on the top six still further.

Other big games see Arsenal facing bottom club Sheffield United, Wolves host Newcastle United, West Ham taking on Everton in the first of Sunday’s games and Liverpool battling Nottingham Forest at Anfield.

As always, the odds we use in this article are from bet365 Sport and were correct at the time of writing, but may change in the run up to kick off in each of the games.

Let’s now recap some of the big news that’s happened in the EPL this week.

Latest Premier League News

Calvert Lewin Wanted By Saudi Arabia

Oft-injured Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is believed to be a target of Al Ettifaq according to reports this week. The Saudi clubs’ manager, Steven Gerrard, is believed to have asked the club to try and sign the Everton man in the January transfer window to team him up with ex-red Jordan Henderson at the club.

United Ready To Offload Sancho In Cut-Price Deal

Other reports this week centred on want-away Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho. With reports from Old Trafford that his rift with United boss Erik ten Hag is now beyond repair, it is believed United will be looking to offload the former Dortmund winger for a cut price fee in January. Newcastle and Real Madrid are reportedly interested in a potential deal.

Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright Passes Away

There was also sad news from Everton FootbalL Club this week when it was announced that the clubs under-fire chairman Bill Kenwright had passed away aged 78 after a recent operation on his liver.

Premier League – Matchday 10 Fixtures & Tips

Games kick off at 8pm on Friday, 3pm on Saturday or 2pm on Sunday unless stated.

Friday 27th October

  • Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur

Friday night’s game sees Spurs in action against a Crystal Palace side that were well beaten last time out at Newcastle. The Londoners, who are not in Europe this season, played last on Monday night, earning a 2-0 win over Fulham. Another London derby will be a battle for Spurs but they do have enough quality and confidence at the moment to get the right result here. Tip – Crystal Palace 1-2 Tottenham – 8/1.

Saturday 28th October

  • Chelsea v Brentford (12.30pm)

Chelsea’s recent improvement in form has been a welcome boost for Mauricio Pochettino as their hangover from last season had continued into this. Seven points out of the last nine has improved their standing in the league a little, and they can improve still further with a win here against a Brentford side who landed a first win in five last weekend. Tip – Chelsea 2-0 Brentford – 15/2.

  • Arsenal v Sheffield United

The Gunners earned a superb win away at Sevilla in the Champions League this week and they should not have too many concerns taking on the bottom club at home. Sheffield United;s struggles are self-evident and it is hard to see them getting anything from any away game, let alone one against one of the best teams in the division. This should be an easy afternoon for Arsenal. Tip – Arsenal 4-0 Sheffield United – 17/2.

  • Bournemouth v Burnley

Under pressure Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola will be hoping his side can get their first win of the EPL season against relegation threatened Burnley. The Cherries boss is already under pressure after they dropped to 19th in the table with just 3 points this season. Burnley are a point better off, but they are playing the better football of the two teams at the moment. Vincent Kompany’s team does have drive and I can see them getting something from this game. Tip – Bournemouth 1-1 Burnley – 13/2. 

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Newcastle United (5.30pm)

Can Wolves keep up their good run of recent form against Newcastle? It’s a big ask for the home side who are unbeaten in their last four games, including a win over Manchester City in that run. Newcastle were beaten in the Champions League in midweek, which was a disappointing result, so they’ll want to bounce back here and I think they will, if only just. Tip – Wolves 0-1 Newcastle – 8/1.

Sunday 29th October

  • West Ham United v Everton (1.00pm)

It is perhaps fitting that in the week of Bill Kenwright’s passing, that it is David Moyes who will see his West Ham team host Everton this weekend. It’s going to be a tough game for the Toffees, not just because of what happened to their chairman, but because West Ham are going well, even despite last week’s big loss at Villa. I think Everton may be inspired to try and pick up a win here, but I can’t see it as West Ham look too strong in my view. Tip – West Ham 2-0 Everton – 11/1.

  • Aston Villa v Luton Town

Aston Villa have the best home record of any team in the Premier League, winning all four of their games so far and scoring more goals than any other team. Luton will not want to hear that ahead of this game, even if the Hatters sole win this season did come away at Everton and they also picked up a point last week against Nottingham Forest on the road too. I can’t see them getting anything from this game though. Tip – Aston Villa 3-0 Luton Town – 15/2.

  • Brighton v Fulham

Can Brighton start to recover their form after a somewhat unusual run of poor results? The Seagulls have been so strong that it is surprising to see them struggling a little of late. Fulham’s form has been inconsistent, especially on the road but they are a team that are capable of landing a surprise result and given how Brighton are playing, they have a chance of that here. Hence, I am going for the draw. Tip – Brighton 1-1 Fulham – 17/2.

  • Liverpool v Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest last won a League game at Anfield in 1969, and they have just one win in the cup since then too, which came back in 1979. So the odds on a Forest win here are not that great. Liverpool have won all four of their home games this season and have had just one loss in over 50 games at Anfield over the last few years. Could Forest spring a surprise here? Somehow, I doubt it hence the tip. Tip – Liverpool 4-1 Nottingham Forest – 16/1.

  • Manchester United v Manchester City (3.30pm)

Both the Manchester teams will feel that they need to win this game. United to keep their improved run of form going and to move into contention for a top six spot, while Manchester City won’t want to fall any further behind Spurs, or risk Liverpool and Arsenal overtaking them in the league. As such, I am expecting another open and entertaining game between these two teams, perhaps with a good number of goals, but I think the majority of them will go to City. Tip – Man Utd 1-3 Man City – 14/1.
