5 weekend football picks: United to show title credentials with win at Palace

Louis van Gaal's side have a superb record at Selhurst Park, while West Ham should continue their excellent form away at Watford

21/20 – Manchester United to beat Crystal Palace

Sunday’s stalemate with Manchester City cemented United’s position as definite Premier League contenders and Louis Van Gaal’s men can further exhibit their credentials with a win at Palace.

Selhurst Park has been a happy ground for the Red Devils, who have won on three of the last four visits.

Crystal Palace’s positive start to the season has been dampened by back-to-back defeats to Leicester and West Ham and Alan Pardew’s men would do well to stop that run continuing on Saturday.

15/8 – West Ham to beat Watford

West Ham travel to Watford on Saturday knowing a win could potentially take them into first place in the Premier League.

The Hammers are statistically the division’s strongest away side, with 13 points from just five games, and they will be confident after downing Chelsea last week.

Irons fans will not fear a Watford outfit who have scored just one home goal this campaign.

12/5 – Chelsea and Liverpool to draw

With five defeats from 10 games, Chelsea’s calamitous season continues to capture all the headlines.

The Blues haven’t lost to the Reds in seven fixtures, though, with two of the last three ending in draws.

Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool has not curtailed their penchant for drawing games – five from 10 – and a point apiece looks the most likely result.

11/10 – Sheffield Wednesday to beat Nottingham Forest

In-form Sheffield Wednesday created midweek headlines with a stunning 3-0 win against Arsenal and should continue their fine form against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The Owls have been flying in recent weeks – winning four consecutive games in all competitions – while Forest have lost three of their last four.

Wednesday have picked up just under 70 per cent of their points against bottom half sides this season and should collect another three against the Reds.

5/2 – Stevenage and Oxford to draw

Third-placed Oxford may head into Saturday’s clash with Stevenage 17 places above their hosts, but are no value to claim all three points at 10/11.

Despite their lowly standing, Stevenage have proven they can compete against the league’s better sides, keeping out the likes of Plymouth and Portsmouth en route to five draws this campaign.

Oxford have been less than impressive away from the Kassam Stadium – winning just three of seven fixtures – and Michael Appleton’s side would be content with a point on Saturday.

A £10 bet on this five-fold accumulator returns £1472.84.
