Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Leeds vs Newcastle

Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Leeds vs Newcastle

Leeds vs Newcastle

Sam Allardyce has three games to extricate Leeds from the drop zone; getting something against his former club Newcastle will not be easy, even as Allardyce says his side “cannot afford to lose”.

Leeds’ 2-1 defeat to Man City might have at least given the supporters a bit of belief, with the visitors giving City a scare towards the end.

Will the West Yorkshire side be able to build on that with a much-needed positive showing at Elland Road? The Magpies had a setback last week, losing at home to an Arsenal side still fighting for the faint hope of the title.

But with Allardyce short on time to make his influence felt, it won’t be a surprise if the hosts fail to keep Newcastle at bay.

Callum Wilson is 6/5 to score for the Magpies; Wilson has netted eight goals in as many league games, and may produce the goods once more in this early kick-off.

Aston Villa vs Spurs

After two straight defeats, Villa look to stop the rot against a Tottenham side that won last time out – but haven’t claimed an away win in the Prem since January.

By contrast the Villans have won their last five at home – without conceding a single goal in that run. Back Villa to win at 5/4, or combine Villa to win and BTTS No in a 3/1 double.

Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest

Frank Lampard ended his 10-game losing streak by steering Chelsea to their first win since March last time out, as the Blues beat Bournemouth at the Vitality.

Chelsea will hope to continue in that vein against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest. But could Steve Cooper’s visitors stun the West London side on Saturday?

Forest have won two of their last three, giving themselves a decent stab at dodging the drop. But the Tricky Trees away form is not compelling; the side are without a win on the road since early January (and that was against the struggling Southampton, the same side they beat 4-3 last time out).

Still, Cooper’s team have at least scored in four of their last five league games on the road. And Chelsea may finally have sorted their own problems finding the net, after scoring four in their last two games. Both Teams To Score is worth a look at Evens.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth

The Roy renaissance means Palace are unbeaten in their last three at Selhurst Park.

Perhaps backing Michael Olise to come up with an assist here is worth a look; he’s Palace’s leading provider in this campaign, and two of those came against Bournemouth in the reverse fixture.

Olise may be extra motivated to put in a good shift this week, too. The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain next season as a potential replacement for, it says here, Lionel Messi…

Olise is 5/2 to provide an assist against Bournemouth.

Man Utd vs Wolves

Man United have fallen a bit flat of late, with consecutive defeats on the road. But they remain tough to beat at home.

Ten Hag’s side should have enough to beat a Wolves side that have lost four of their last five away games, and shipped six goals to Brighton at the end of April.

Without the fear of relegation to spur them on, Wolves may not be at their most motivated for this match; and United are still fighting for a Champions League place, with Liverpool lurking a point behind them in fifth.

It would be a surprise if this doesn’t end in victory for the hosts; back United to win and under 3.5 goals in a 59/50 double.

Southampton vs Fulham

Southampton haven’t officially been relegated, but they remain rock bottom of the Premier League, six points back of nearest rivals Leeds & Leicester. This is a must-win match – for a team that haven’t won a single one of their last 10.

Up until a few days ago, the Cottagers had been in fairly underwhelming form. But on Monday, Fulham put five past another relegation-threatened side, Leicester.

Concerningly, Southampton haven’t even been able to find the net in their last two home games, against Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. But the Saints found the net three times in defeat against Forest last time out.

Manager Ruben Selles will expect his team to at least put up a decent fight against opposition that have conceded in their last 11 league games. There could be goals in this match, and over 3.5 is a 43/20 shot.
