There are seven Premier League clashes on Saturday 13 February, with Sunderland clashing with Manchester United
Get set for another action-packed Premier League weekend and no less than five matches being televised by Sky Sports and BT Sport on Saturday and Sunday.
It all gets going on Saturday lunchtime when Sunderland face Manchester United, with Chelsea hosting Newcastle on Saturday evening. Read on for our predictions and best bets.
Sunderland v Man Utd 12:45
There’s no getting away from Sunderland’s odds of 4/1 for this one. The Black Cats have picked up recently and were unlucky not to get something against Manchester City in their last home game. United are so hit and miss that they can’t make any appeal at odds-on.
CORRECT SCORE: Sunderland 2 Manchester United 1
BEST BET: Sunderland @ 21/5 with BetVictor
Bournemouth v Stoke 15:00
Stoke have lost three on the bounce and last weekend’s first-half capitulation against Everton was spectacular. However, Bournemouth have only won three home matches all season and we’re happy to get with the Potters.
CORRECT SCORE: Bournemouth 1 Stoke 2
BEST BET: Stoke DNB @ 9/5 with BetVictor
Crystal Palace v Watford 15:00
Watford have a simple game plan. They keep things tight and hope that Odion Ighalo nicks a goal at the other end. Therefore, we’re expecting a low-scoring affair as was the case when the teams met in the reverse fixture.
CORRECT SCORE: Crystal Palace 0 Watford 0
BEST BET: Under 1.5 Goals @ 2/1 with William Hill
Everton v West Brom 15:00
Crisis? What crisis? The Toffees have enjoyed three straight 3-0 wins and maybe there’s another one on the cards. West Brom look very ordinary and they could get sucked into a relegation scrap.
CORRECT SCORE: Everton 3 West Brom 0
BEST BET: Everton win to nil @ 6/4 with Ladbrokes
Norwich v West Ham 15:00
The Hammers are beset by injuries and those 120 minutes played against Liverpool might take their toll on the London side. Norwich need a victory by hook or by crook and they might just edge this despite their poor form.
CORRECT SCORE: Norwich 1 West Ham 0
BEST BET: Norwich to win @ 6/4 with Betfred
Swansea v Southampton 15:00
Swansea were seriously impressive against Palace and should have put the Eagles to the sword. Southampton have been rock solid defensively although might miss Victor Wanyama and we fancy the home team.
BEST BET: Swansea @ 21/10 with Ladbrokes
CORRECT SCORE: Swansea 2 Southampton 0
Chelsea v Newcastle 17:30
Chelsea are torrid 4/9 shots considering they have a date with Paris Saint-Germain next week. The Magpies played well when beating the Baggies and 7/1 about the away win is not the daftest shout of the weekend.
CORRECT SCORE: Chelsea 1 Newcastle 2
BEST BET: Newcastle DNB @ 27/5 with 888sport
