West Ham to win or draw against Stoke and BTTS -

West Ham have taken four points from Chelsea and Arsenal in the last week, while Stoke suffered demoralising defeats against Tottenham and Burnley.

The Potters, who have conceded 16 goals in their last seven matches, have the worst defence in the Premier League.

They have, however, scored regularly at home, with Chelsea and Liverpool the only clubs to thwart them.

Arsenal (-1) v Newcastle –

Arsenal won seven successive home Premier League games before their defeat to Manchester United a fortnight ago, and they should return to form at the Emirates against Newcastle.

Rafa Benitez’s side have lost seven of their last eight league matches, and their last win on the road was against Swansea in September.

Five of Arsenal’s seven home league wins have been by two goals or more, and it’s worth backing another easy win on Saturday.

Fulham to beat Sunderland –                                                

Sunderland’s 0-0 draw at league leaders Wolves was impressive, but the relegation candidates are still in trouble.

The Black Cats only beaten bottom-of-the-league Burton in their last 19 league games and are 21 without a victory at the Stadium of Light.

Fulham have picked up of late, winning three out of four, and are a great price to take three points back home with them.

Brentford to beat Barnsley –

Barnsley will not be able to cope with Brentford’s attack on Saturday.

The hosts have scored at least twice in seven of their last nine matches, while Paul Heckingbottom’s visitors have conceded three in all of their last three games.

When you consider that the Tykes have scored just once in their last five, losing all of them, then this is a safe bet.

Manchester City double chance and BTTS

City are yet to lose this season having netted at least twice in 15 of their 17 matches.

Their clean sheet against Swansea in midweek, however, was just their second in eight.

So Spurs, who have only failed to score three times in 25 games in all competitions, should have no trouble bringing this one home.
