⚽ Top scorer:

West Ham: Marko Arnautovic 3 Goals

Man Utd: Romelu Lukaku 4 Goals

πŸ‘€ Players to watch:

West Ham: Marko Arnautovic

Man Utd: Paul Pogba

Following his criticism of Jose Mourinho’s tactics, Paul Pogba has been stripped of the United vice-captaincy. Whether Mourinho will drop the Frenchman is a big conundrum for the Red Devils, who are without a win in their last two games. Arnautovic missed last weekend’s game vs Chelsea and he will be looking to add to his 3 goals so far this season.

❓ Did you know: Romelu Lukaku scored against West Ham on 10 of the 11 occasions he has faced them!

βŒ› Predictions:  West Ham 2 Man Utd 1

⚽ Top scorer:

Chelsea: Eden Hazard 5 goals

Liverpool: Sadio Mane 4 goals

πŸ‘€ Players to watch:

Chelsea: Hazard

Liverpool: Mo Salah

This will be a fierce game between two teams with aspirations to win the title. After a midweek clash where both teams did not play their full strength sides, it was a bit of Hazard magic that won the game for Chelsea.  Salah only played the final 10 minutes of the midweek game and will be looking to recapture his form from last season.

❓ Did you know: Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has five goals in his last six Premier League starts against Liverpool, including the winner in this fixture last season.

βŒ› Predictions:  Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

 

🍷Burnley v Cardiff City πŸ”΅

πŸ”™ Previous Meeting:

Burley 0-0 Cardiff City (April 5th, 2016)

⚽ Top scorer:

Burnley: Barnes, Tarkowski 2 Goals

Cardiff City: Camarassa, Ward, Bamba 1 Goal

πŸ‘€ Players to watch:

Burnley: Joe Hart

Cardiff City: Neil Etheridge

These two keepers for the sides have played a major part in keeping them afloat so far this season. Joe Hart has been in fantastic form, drawing back the attention of Gareth Southgate. Etheridge has been brilliant for the Bluebirds, saving two penalties in his first two Premier League matches.

❓ Did you know: Cardiff are unbeaten in 13 matches in all competitions against Burnley since a 2-0 loss at Turf Moor in April 2007.

βŒ› Predictions:  Burnley 1-0 Cardiff City

 

πŸ’ AFC Bournemouth v Crystal Palace πŸ¦…

πŸ“ Where: Vitality Stadium

Bournemouth: WDLWL 8th in the table

Palace: LLLWD 11th in the table

♻️ Last Game:

πŸ”™ Previous Meeting:

AFCB 2-2 Palace (April 7th, 2018)

⚽ Top scorer:

AFCB: Ryan Fraser 3 Goals

Palace: Wilfried Zaha 3 Goals

πŸ‘€ Players to watch:

AFCB: Joshua King

Palace: Wilfried Zaha

Bournemouth have enjoyed a strong start to the season, but were sobered by a 4-0 defeat to Burnley last time out. Zaha is Palace’s messiah, and without him Palace have failed to earn a point since the start of the β€˜17/18 season!

❓ Did you know: A Palace victory on Monday would make them the 22nd side to reach a century of wins in the Premier League.

βŒ› Predictions:  Palace 1-0 Bournemouth
