Last weekend, was there another seismic shift in the Premier League title race? With Manchester City in action in the Carabao Cup Final (a game they won on penalties over Chelsea), their main rivals Liverpool went to Old Trafford and were unable to capitalise on three first half injuries for Manchester United and a lacklustre home display, with the game finishing in a tepid 0-0 draw.

That point was enough to see Liverpool return to the top of the table although their gap, which was seven points a few weeks ago, is now down to just one after a run of games where the Reds have picked up just one point (away to West Ham, home to Leicester and now away at Old Trafford), while Manchester City have continued to win their games.

Tuesday 26th February

  • Cardiff City v Everton – Away Win – 6/5

With the Emiliano Sala affair, it has been a torrid few weeks for Cardiff City and I think the stress of that told in their last home performance, a 5-1 defeat to Watford. Everton will feel they can get a similar result if they play well, but Neil Warnock is a wily campaigner and I can see him trying to stifle Everton as other teams have done successfully. That said Everton have some quality players and I can see one of them being the difference and being the reason why the Toffee’s clinch a narrow win.

  • Huddersfield v Wolves – Away Win – 4/5

For me, Huddersfield are already doomed to relegation after what has been a dismal season. Even a change of manager has not improved results any and with their opponents Wolves in great form at the moment, it is hard to see how the home side can get a result here. They did beat Wolves at Molyneux in November but since then the fortunes of both sides have been in sharp contrast and as such, I fancy that Wolves will earn a solid win here.

  • Leicester City v Brighton – Home Win – 19/20

The 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend was the last straw for the Leicester board who sacked Claude Puel following that result. As yet no new manager has been named to replace him but when teams do this, they usually get a bounce and pick up a good result. That is precisely what I can see happening here as this is a talented Leicester side who have underperformed at key times this season. With a new manager to come in, they have a point to prove and against a Brighton side badly out of form, they should pick up the three points in front of their home fans.

  • Newcastle United v Burnley – Draw – 12/5

This is going to be an important game for both sides as both teams have experienced improved form of late with Burnley now unbeaten in nine Premier League games, while Newcastle have lost just one of the last five. Those results have pushed both away from the drop zone, but they are still embroiled at the bottom of the table and both managers will be mindful more of not losing the game than winning it and as such, I think this has the likelihood of finishing up as a low scoring draw.

Wednesday 27th February

  • Arsenal v Bournemouth – Home Win – 4/9

The Gunners earned a solid 2-0 win over Southampton at the weekend while Bournemouth shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Wolves. The Cherries have had an up and down season, very good one week but poor the next and their record against top six sides isn’t very good. Arsenal also have decent home form and rarely lose in front of their home fans and in truth, I cannot see them doing that here. Bournemouth could cause them a few problems, but I still expect Arsenal to come through this game with the win.

  • Southampton v Fulham- Home Win – 10/11

This is a crucial six-pointer at the bottom of the table with the results at the weekend leaving Southampton occupying the final relegation place just above Fulham. The visitors are sevcen points behind Southampton as it stands, and a defeat here would more than likely mean they will be relegated so it is a huge game for Fulham too. However, Southampton have been doing better under their new manager and Fulham’s defensive problems still remain patently clear, hence I am backing the Saints to earn a narrow but precious victory here.

  • Chelsea v Tottenham – Away Win – 21/10

Can Chelsea bounce back from their Carabao Cup Final penalties defeat and the antics of keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who refused to be substituted in the final and whose future has now been called into question. The conciliatory remarks by manager Mauricio Sarri suggest he will keep faith with the keeper, and he may need to against a Spurs side itching to bounce back from a defeat at Burnley. Chelsea have the better record at home against Spurs in recent times but I think something is not well at Stamford Bridge and as such, I am backing Spurs to claim a rare away win here.

  • Crystal Palace v Man Utd – Draw – 5/2

With all the injuries Manchester United have, it could be a reshaped team that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer puts out against an in form Crystal Palace this week. Mata, Herrera, Lingard, Martial and Rashford are all doubts and that could play into Palace’s hands. The Eagles were 4-1 winners at Leicester at the weekend and come into this game in good form. They don’t have the best record against Manchester United however, home or away, but I am backing them to take a point from this game against a depleted visitors side.

  • Liverpool v Watford – Home Win – 1/4

Liverpool have now failed to score in their last two games, drawing 0-0 at home to Bayern Munich and then the same scoreline away at Old Trafford to Manchester United. While not disastrous results, the lack of form shown by the Reds front three, and the injury to Firmino, will be a worry for Jurgen Klopp heading into the business end of the season. Watford come into this game fresh from a 5-1 win over Cardiff but their record at Anfield is poor and I think the home side will secure a much-needed win here.

  • Man City v West Ham – Home Win – 1/6

After their Carabao Cup Final win over Chelsea, which was not the most convincing display, I am expecting City to make a number of changes for the game with West Ham with the likes of Sane, Mahrez, Stones and others coming in for those who played all or most of the 120 minutes against Chelsea. This could make it a tricky game for City, against a West Ham side who have some talented players. Even so, City should win and it is impossible to back against them at home given their current form.
