Sports Tips and Predictions
These teams had contrasting results in Europe this week but we think their fortunes could be reversed on Sunday. West Ham announced themselves on the Europa League stage as goals from Michail Antonio and Declan Rice secured a 2-0 victory at Dinamo Zagreb to give gave us a clean sweep of winning predictions.
Everton have not won at Villa Park since 2016 but that could change as they take on an Aston Villa side that suffered a chastening experience at Stamford Bridge last Saturday. Dean Smith’s men could be up against it for the second successive Saturday as they welcome a Toffees side blessed with attacking prowess to the second city.
Arsenal last tasted success at Turf Moor in May 2019 and are also without a win in three against Sean Dyche’s Burnley. However, the Gunners released some of the pressure on gaffer Mikel Arteta when securing their first points of the season last week and will fancy their chances of doubling their tally against their fellow strugglers.
Two winless teams meet on Tyneside on Friday night when defeat for either will really set the alarm bells ringing. Newcastle have picked up just one point from their first four games and have the worst defensive record in the division with 12 goals conceded while Leeds have drawn twice and lost twice.
A 1-0 win at the King Power last weekend handed Manchester City their third straight victory and they are the heavy favourites as they welcome Southampton. The goals have been flying in at the Etihad this season, with Pep Guardiola’s side putting five past both Norwich and Arsenal in their two previous home league fixtures and six past RB Leipzig on Wednesday.
Rangers are finding form at just the right time as they welcome the seven-time French champions to Glasgow for what looks set to be an entertaining night at Ibrox. This is the first competitive meeting between the two clubs since the group stage of the 2007/8 Champions League, when Lyon took home all three points via a 3-0 scoreline.
Leicester are yet to find their best form this season and look short of confidence as their Europa League campaign gets under way on Thursday night. The Foxes have lost two of their first four matches in the Premier League, losing 4-1 at West Ham last month and 1-0 at home to Manchester City on Saturday.
West Ham are back in Europe and will be determined to get off to get off to a flying start as they head to Croatia for their opening Europa League match. The Hammers are unbeaten in the Premier League after four matches but now begin the challenge of also competing in Europe, which could stretch their squad.
History is not on Norwich’s side as they attempt to claim their first Premier League victory of the season when Watford visit Carrow Road. The Canaries have won just one of their previous six meetings with the Hornets – their 4-2 home success in 2016 ultimately proving in vain as they were relegated the same night.
