Premier League preview: Sunday’s action including Fulham vs Liverpool

Premier League preview: Sunday’s action including Fulham vs Liverpool

Everton vs Nottingham Forest

Everton were pretty wretched against Chelsea on Monday night – will they be able to put the 6-0 drubbing behind them as they welcome Forest to Goodison Park on Sunday?

Forest haven’t won away in the league in 2024, but this could be an outstanding opportunity to improve that record – and move ahead of the Toffees in the league table, too.

Everton have lost four of their last six games, while the most recent outing in west London was nothing short of disastrous. Forest are no great shakes, but they’ve only lost one of their last five league games and this looks winnable.

Sean Dyche’s side did earn a victory in their last home game, against Burnley, but it was hardly a masterful performance as they nicked a 1-0 win against a side reduced to ten men.

Forest are 11/4 to win and pile more gloom on the Merseyside team; or you could chance the Correct Score market, with Forest to win 1-0 at 21/2.

If you don’t have faith in Nuno’s men taking victory, alternatively you could back under 2.5 goals at 10/11. Everton have scored a total of six goals across their last nine league games; Forest have two goals in their last three away games.

Aston Villa vs Bournemouth

Villa beat Lille in a penalty shootout on Thursday to progress to the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League.

And Unai Emery no doubt took much personal satisfaction as his side dealt a serious blow to Arsenal’s title aspirations last Sunday. Emery managed the Gunners previously, of course.

It’s fair to say the Birmingham side are riding high as they welcome Bournemouth to Villa Park on Sunday. Can the Cherries rain on Villa’s parade here?

Andoni Iraola’s side have done well against some of the Prem’s less fearsome sides in the last six weeks or so, but their only recent away win came against Burnley.

And Bournemouth’s most recent away result was a defeat to Luton earlier this month, which isn’t a great confidence-booster ahead of this one.

Maybe it’s better to bank on Ollie Watkins coming good once again. The striker has four goals in his last four outings across all competitions, three from his last two at Villa Park – plus he scored the second against Arsenal last week.

Watkins is 11/10 to find the net here, with what would be his 20th league goal of the campaign.

Crystal Palace vs West Ham

Oli Glasner’s Palace shocked Liverpool with a 1-0 win at Anfield that may have ended Jurgen Klopp’s hopes of Prem glory in his final season with the Reds.

So Oliver’s army should be upbeat as the Eagles welcome mardy David Moyes to Selhurst Park on Sunday. West Ham exited the Europa League at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday night, and after that match – a 1-1 draw on the night – Moyes was testy as reporters asked him about his future.

Whatever his plans for next season, in the here and now Moyes will be hopeful of escaping another defeat to Palace; they won this fixture 4-3 last season, and are unbeaten in their last three encounters with West Ham.

While West Ham have a proud record of scoring against Palace in each of their last 19 league games, their recent league form is less positive. They’ve won once in their last six matches, and tend to struggle after European midweek games, too.

Palace could be a good thing to take all three points; the home win is an 11/10 shot.

Fulham vs Liverpool

At first glance, you’d think a trip to Craven Cottage shouldn’t sound too daunting for Liverpool, even if the side are in a bit of a funk right now.

The Merseyside team plunged out of Europe against Atalanta on Thursday night, a 1-0 away win not enough to turn around the 3-0 deficit from the first leg.

Liverpool also lost 1-0 to Palace a week ago, a result that seriously undermines Jurgen Klopp’s hopes of steering his side to Premier League glory in his final season in charge.

Alas, the trip to west London may not offer an opportunity for Liverpool to start winning again. Liverpool’s last three encounters at the Cottage have ended in draws after normal time, though Klopp’s side eventually won on penalties when the sides met in the League Cup back in January.

Fulham are not the most reliable of sides, but they’ve beaten both Spurs and Brighton 3-0 on home turf in the last six weeks. They’ve also beaten Arsenal this season; Marco Silva’s side are clearly capable of holding their own against the Prem’s bigger beasts, then.

If you’re tempted to back the upset, you can back Fulham or the draw in the Double Chance market at 11/8. Otherwise, you might want to take a crack at over 3.5 goals at 26/25. It’s not difficult to envisage plenty of goalmouth action…
