Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Man City vs Wolves

Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Man City vs Wolves

Arsenal vs Bournemouth

Arsenal might top the league table, but Man City lie just one point behind with a game in hand. If both clubs win their remaining games, the title is Pep’s.

All the Gunners can do is put that that looming spectre aside, and focus on winning their games. For this lunchtime kick-off, do the Cherries pose a threat to that title challenge?

Arsenal won the return fixture 4-0, and tend to flourish against the south coast side; they’ve won seven of their last eight encounters in all comps, and have won all their home games against Bournemouth in the Premier League.

Arteta’s side come into this one with three straight wins, most recently the 3-2 over Spurs last weekend. But the Cherries are in good shape too, keeping clean sheets in their last two matches as they saw off Wolves and most recently, Brighton 3-0.

Even so, we can’t bring ourselves to believe the visitors will be the ones to undo Arsenal’s title challenge; far more sporting to let Gunners fans go into the final day still somehow believing everything will turn out okay.

Before that dream gets torn to shreds, Kai Havertz could be worth backing; he’s scored three times in two matches, and is 5/4 to hit the back of the net here.

Brentford vs Fulham

Recent matches between these two sides tend to offer goals. At Craven Cottage back in August Brentford won 3-0, while the two league games between these sides last season each ended with the respective hosts winning 3-2.

The Bees have been in productive mood lately too, putting five past Luton in April and matching Villa in a 3-3 thriller a few weeks earlier. With Fulham often capable of a few goals themselves, this could be another lively one. Over 3.5 goals is a 29/20 shot.

Burnley vs Newcastle

Burnley can still escape relegation, and a win over Newcastle would go a long way to helping Vincent Kompany keep his side’s survival hopes alive.

Can the Clarets earn a precious three points at Turf Moor? Burnley’s home ground hasn’t exactly been a fortress, though they have taken points from three of their last home games – and more generally, Burnley have only lost one of their last eight games, which sounds promising.

Unfortunately for them, Newcastle are in pretty good shape themselves – they relegated Sheffield United last week 5-1 at St James’ Park, though they’ve been less flashy on their travels. The Magpies lost 2-0 away to Crystal Palace a few weeks back.

Newcastle do have the excellent Alexander Isak, though; the Swedish striker has seven goals in six games, and scored a brace against the Blades last time out. He is 19/20 to score at any time here.

Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest

The hosts are already doomed to the drop – but can they help take Nottingham Forest down with them?

Chris Wilder’s side shipped five goals against Newcastle last week, lost their last home game 4-1 to fellow strugglers Burnley, and have won one league game in 2024.

Maybe with the pressure off they’ll give Forest a shoeing. But on the face of it this looks like a great chance for the visitors to earn a much needed three points.

Forest are heavy favourites to win this one, but perhaps it’s better to back BTTS and over 3.5 goals in a double at 17/10.

The Tricky Trees must surely go for it, but the Blades have scored six goals across their last three home games and may not go quietly. And 13 of Sheffield United’s last 15 league matches have seen a total of four or more goals scored.

Man City vs Wolves

Can Wolves inject a little extra excitement into the title race in this tea-time kick-off? After all, they did beat City in the reverse fixture, winning 2-1 at Molineux back in September.

More recently, Gary O’Neil’s side have had fewer moments to savour; their win last time out against Luton was their first in seven league games.

Meanwhile, City have continued in trademark remorseless fashion, unbeaten in 19 league games. It’s not like Wolves are generally a bogey team for City, either; Pep Guardiola’s side have won seven of their last eight home games against the Old Gold.

At 21/2 for the draw, maybe the more romantic/hopeful/deluded punter may choose to take a chance on Wolves getting a point at the Etihad.

Otherwise, you could take a chance on Phil Foden scoring for the hosts. He scored a hat-trick against Aston Villa in his last home game in the Prem, and bagged a brace away to Brighton last weekend. Foden is 59/50 to find the net here.
