Check out the Euro Fantasy League predictions for the weekend ahead as Premier League football returns following the international break!
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool – away win
This tie sees two teams at opposite ends of the table come together in Saturday’s early kick off.
Whilst Crystal Palace have presented a robust challenge for the likes of Spurs and Man United in recent weeks, the like of Salah (156 points) points and Firmino (95) should prove too much for the hosts.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Leicester City – home win
Brighton have made the Amex a tough place to visit over the past few months and this game won’t be a ‘gimme’ for the visitors.
Whilst Leicester have been in good form, and players like Vardy (53 points) have the capacity to hurt anyone, we’re tipping a home win here.
Manchester United vs Swansea City – home win
The atmosphere surrounding United it one of ill-ease in recent months yet they remain second in the league.
The form of players like Jordan Ayew (25 points) have made the Swans a tough team to face but wins at Old Trafford are tough to come by and it seems probable they will leave empty handed.
Newcastle United vs Huddersfield Town – home win.
After a dour first half to the campaign, the arrival of Kenedy on loan from Chelsea has sparked Newcastle United into life since January.
Dwight Gayle (24 goals) has also grown in form recently and the output of this attacking duo could prove too much for the visiting Terriers.
Watford vs. AFC Bournemouth – draw
Two sides that have blown hot and cold this season, it will be interesting to see whether either side can use the game as a platform too truly push on into the back end of the campaign.
Whilst Jordon Ibe (29 points) and Callum Wilson (34 points) have both shown good form as of recent, it would not be surprising to see this one end all-square.
West Bromwich Albion vs. Burnley – away win
Burnley’s form may have taken a dip in recent weeks but the Baggies’ is nothing short of woeful.
The likes of Tarkowski (10 clean sheets) and Pope (11 clean sheets) have delivered a solid defensive platform from which their game is built and expect them to use this to secure victory on Saturday.
West Ham United vs. Southampton – draw
Two sides in dire straits, there is a chance that a Sparky bounce could inspire a Soton win, but a draw would be an unsurprising outcome.
On the other side of the pitch, the Hammers will be counting on the form of Marco Arnautovic (seven goals and three assists) to inspire victory for them.
Everton vs Manchester City – away win
Guardiola’s men inch closure to the title and a win at Goodison Park will see them get ever closure to a first Premier League victory under the Spaniard.
Sergio Aguero will be hoping he can be the star man for the Citizens, as he looks to build on his 21 goals and remain in the fight for the Golden Boot.
Arsenal vs Stoke City – home win
For all of Arsenal’s woes in 2017/18, their form at the Emirates has remained exceptional.
Expect the likes of new boys Aubameyang (12 points) and Mkhitaryan (46 points) to prove too much for a relegation threatened Stoke.
Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur – Away win
This game could prove pivotal in deciding which team qualifies for the next season’s Champions League campaign.
The Blues may have a home advantage but the balance is probably tipped in the favour of the visitors, who are led by an in form Heung-Min Son who sits on 12 goals for the campaign – they will be hoping he can fill the void for a Harry Kane (98 points) that may not be fit enough to return at the Bridge.
