Further details on how to play and for all applicable 6 Scores Challenge Terms and Conditions

Brighton vs Chelsea

Sam 1-1

This trip back to Brighton is not something that Graham Potter is going to relish, despite his press conference claims that he’s looking forward to going back. He’s all too familiar of what he’s up against, and you sense that Brighton will be desperate for a result

Both of these teams know what their big problem is – it’s scoring goals, and I can see them cancelling each other out.

Steve: 1-0

I can see this being an unhappy homecoming for Graham Potter. Chelsea were fortunate to beat Aston Villa, failed to score past Brentford, and were being comprehensively outplayed by Manchester United before the first-half introduction of Mateo Kovacic.

A first defeat is looming for Potter against a manager searching for his first win – and what a game to do it.

Newcastle vs Aston Villa

Sam: 1-0

Newcastle are enjoying a terrific spell of form, while Villa themselves have had a bit of a lift, but Unai Emery has a lot of work to do. They’ve only scored 11 goals this season and four of them came last weekend against a very pliable Brentford, and Newcastle keep things tight.

Steve: 2-1

Were Aston Villa great last week or were Brentford really bad? Villa fans have been screaming for 4-2-3-1 and that’s what they got in a comfortable win. 

Unfortunately, they head to Tyneside to face a side full of confidence in Newcastle who are unbeaten in seven having taken four points from trips to Manchester United and Tottenham in recent weeks.

Aaron Danks’ 100% record will go here.

Latest Premier League odds

Fulham vs Everton

Sam: 2-2

Everton’s home record has been their main source of points so a trip to Craven Cottage will present a test for Frank Lampard’s men. 

Look, Manchester United, Tottenham, Newcastle, they’re a level above the Toffees, but sides like Crystal Palace, West Ham, Brentford, Leeds, those games they were completely in all the way through, they competed very well and have eight points to show from those four.

It’s a really good test to take on a Fulham team who are over-performing on their xG but always have a bit of a threat about them going forward.

Steve: 2-1

Fulham have scored eight in their last three games, and even Everton managed three last weekend, so there could be goals in this one, just as there has been in the last 10 for the Cottagers.

As you mentioned, Sam, Fulham are over-performing on their xG, but Marco Silva’s doing a fine job with his Fulham side already looking as good as safe and will be relishing facing his former club.

Liverpool v Leeds

Sam: 3-1

Oh, Jesse Marsch. This is not what he wants after eight without a win. And in those matches, their best asset – scoring goals – seems to have deserted them. They’ve managed just six in their last eight, with Patrick Bamford yet to get off the mark, and Liverpool won’t miss the chances they did at Forest again – look what happened against Ajax on Wednesday…

Leeds only lost by one goal against Fulham, but I watched the game live and they were well beaten by a better outfit in Fulham. They like a high tempo, high risk press, and that leaves them vulnerable to the counter attack which might play into Liverpool’s hands.

Liverpool had great chances at the City Ground last week and didn’t take them – that won’t happen again on Saturday.

Steve: 3-1

Liverpool aren’t nailed on for the top four are they? They’ve dropped points in seven of their 11 league games so far this season and are now 4/6 to finish in the Top 4. 

But they have looked better in front of their own fans, and there have been 18 goals in the four Premier League games between these two sides since Leeds’ return to the top flight, with 14 of them for Jurgen Klopp’s side. I fancy a home win here.

Arsenal v Nottingham Forest

Sam: 1-1

Arsenal have just fallen off wagon a bit. Are they getting tired by weeks of not rotating? 

Nottingham Forest meanwhile – shall I say it again for effect? – WON’T be relegated. Forest are on the up. They’re finding the balance, with Scott McKenna and Steve Cook tremendous against Liverpool last week. 

Can they trouble the Gunners? Arsenal look jaded, but they have won 13 of 16 so far in all competitions this season.

Steve: 1-1

Have Nottingham Forest turned a corner? They had a number of big chances against Liverpool and they look so much better defensively… For Arsenal, is this the part of the season where they drop points? I’m going for a shock draw.

Manchester United v West Ham

Sam: 2-1

It’s been 14 matches since the Hammers last won at Old Trafford – you’ll remember Carlos Tevez’s winner on the final day in 2007.

This season however, West Ham are finding things tough on the road with just one win in six in the league, scoring just three times. 

They played well against Liverpool – what would have happened had Jarrod Bowen tucked his penalty away? – but United have beaten Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs at home this season and should win this.

Steve: 1-0

A huge point at Stamford Bridge for United last weekend. Casemiro’s last-gasp equaliser sent both fans and players into raptures, and it’s bubbling under at Old Trafford once again. 

As you mentioned, Sam, Carlos Tevez got the winner the last time West Ham left Old Trafford with all three points when they dramatically stayed up on the final day back in 2007, but United should have too much for the Hammers on Sunday.
