Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest
Bournemouth have been in fine form over the last few months; Andoni Iraola’s south coast outfit should fancy their chances against a Forest side that have lost eight of their last 11 league games.
The Cherries’ main threat remains Dominic Solanke, with the striker having scored 13 goals in the Prem so far this season. That haul includes a hat trick plundered when these two sides met in December, so Solanke should relish this encounter. He could well add to his tally on Sunday.
Back Bournemouth to win and Solanke to score in a double at 8/5.
Chelsea vs Wolves
After a humbling trip to Anfield earlier this week, Chelsea return to the comparative comfort of Stamford Bridge. Pochettino’s side are unbeaten in their last five home games in the Prem, winning their last four.
That said, Wolves beat Chelsea 2-1 on Christmas Eve, and Gary O’Neil’s side showed plenty of fight against Man Utd in a bonkers 4-3 outing on Thursday night.
Pedro Neto scored an equaliser in stoppage time, only for Kobbie Mainoo to find a 97th minute winner for United. It was a tough outcome for Wolves – but impressive from Neto, who has now scored in back-to-back games.
The Portuguese star is generally not that prolific – he’s only scored one other goal this season. But Wolves’ defeat to Man Utd was their first loss in eight games in all competitions, and the visitors may be able to take something from their trip to west London.
In three of their last five visits to the Bridge, Wolves have been able to hold out for a draw. This Chelsea side are susceptible to a slip-up, too; you can back the draw at 16/5 this week.
Man Utd vs West Ham
United’s haphazard progress continues, the club lurching erratically through their curious, inconsistent campaign.
Having almost let Wolves back into the game earlier this week, at least Erik ten Hag’s side emerged from Molineux with all three points. So can they build on that positive outcome by stringing a few wins together?
At first glance, a home game against West Ham sounds like it could be straightforward enough for the Manchester side. The Irons remain winless so far in 2024, having drawn against Bournemouth on Thursday.
But the Irons did beat Man Utd fairly comfortably back in December, and David Moyes’ side have also lost just one of their last 11 league games. With West Ham beating both Tottenham and Arsenal on the road in recent months, it seems advisable not to underestimate them at Old Trafford.
West Ham or the draw in the double chance market is a 6/5 shot.
Arsenal vs Liverpool
When Liverpool visited the Emirates in the FA Cup last month, Klopp’s side won 2-0; prior to that, Arsenal nicked a point against the Reds at Anfield in December.
Liverpool currently top the league table, having lost just a single game in the Prem so far in this campaign. The Gunners are five points back, and their failure to win here would be a serious blow to Mikel Arteta’s title aspirations.
Arsenal have lost two of their last three home games; they also went down 2-0 to West Ham in late December.
The meaningfulness of this encounter should galvanise the hosts, but with Liverpool looking to see out the Jurgen Klopp era on a high, there’s a sense that the Merseyside team’s intensity may prove hard to overcome.
Both sides should play their part in a match that could well live up to the excitement surrounding it. Backing the visitors to take the win might be the smart bet, though; Liverpool are 19/10 for victory.
Of the likely scorers, Diogo Jota is surely worth considering; not only has he scored four goals from his last four games in all competitions, Jota also has a great record against Arsenal too, scoring five goals at the Emirates in all competitions since arriving at Liverpool in 2020. Jota is 12/5 to find the net.
