Top weekend picks: United’s Russian round-trip gives City the edge

Five results we expect to see in the Premier League this weekend

There are some Premier League contests this weekend that look to be tight affairs, but we reckon we have found five that will produce a whopping profit.

9/4 – Aston Villa v Swansea City – Draw

These two teams are in shocking form, Swansea without a victory in five and Villa winless in eight.

If either manager were to lose this game then they would be close to the sack, but a draw looks likely here/

Goals are the problem, in their last ten games combined, these sides have managed just seven of them.

Both sides will try to attack but there has been little in the way of end of product.

Villa have an awful record against the Swans in the Premier League but the Welsh side cannot buy a  at the win at the minute so the draw appeals.


12/5 – Leicester City v Crystal Palace – Draw

Leicester games guarantee goals under Claudio Ranieri and we can expect more of the same against Palace, who had been tight at the back before shipping three against West Ham last time out.

There is only one point and one place between these sides and nothing in the goal difference which shows just how evenly matched the sides are.

Palace are one of only two teams yet to draw in the Premier League this season, but the Foxes have finished with a score-draw in four of their last seven and we can expect the same here.


6/5 – Tottenham to beat Bournemouth

Things are not looking good for Bournemouth. The squad has been decimated by injuries and last week they took their first Premier League hammering at the hands of Manchester City.

Spurs, on the other hand are undefeated in eight and have the joint-best defence in the division.

The Londoners are struggling for goals but they may only need one to beat the Cherries and you would expect them to manage that on the south coast.

Tottenham at 6/5 look a great price to win this one.


13/8 – Man City to beat Man United

After years playing second fiddle, City now have a very good record against United, winning six of the last nine meetings between the sides, three of which have come at Old Trafford.

Both sides played in midweek but whilst City were at home, United have had a long trip to Russia to contend with, which gives the men in blue a distinct advantage.

Sergio Aguero remains out but David Silva may be back and that, along with a tired, inconsistent United side with a bad recent record against their rivals, is enough to give City the edge.


11/10 – Stoke to beat Watford

After a very sticky start, Mark Hughes’ new-look Stoke team are hitting their stride and have quietly won their last three games.

Each has been by the odd goal but nevertheless they have climbed the table and now look ready for an assault on the European places.

Watford have looked solid but six goals in nine Premier League games is a paltry return, the worst in the division.

The Potters have sorted their defence out impressively, conceding just once in three games and they can expect another narrow win this weekend.
