Southampton and Wolverhampton face each other at St. Mary’s Stadium. The Saints have been totally out of form in 2021, with the team losing each of their previous five league fixtures. Southampton have been struggling at the back of late, but January signing Takumi Minamino helped the team improve offensively. A man to watch in the home team will be top scorer Danny Ings.
The Wolves, head into the game following a goalless draw with Leicester City. Wolverhampton have been struggling in front of goal without injured star Raul Jimenez, and I predict that the Mexico international will once again be sorely missed in Saturday’s clash. Since Southampton are desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League, I predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
Manchester United will be aiming to melt Manchester City’s advantage in the Premier League standings when they take on WBA at the Hawthorns on Saturday. The Red Devils have been scoring goals for fun of late, but they dropped two points in a 3-3 draw with Everton. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are determined to keep their title hopes alive.
Paul Pogba misses the match with a thigh injury, while defender Eric Bailly should recover in time to face the Baggies.
WBA, have slim chances of securing the Premier League survival. Sam Allardyce’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, and given Man Utd’s attacking potential, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Sam Allardyce has a full squad to choose from as midfielder Diangana has recovered from his injury.
Arsenal and Leeds United face each other at Emirates Stadium. The Gunners aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa, and the good news for Mikel Arteta is that both Bernd Leno and David Luiz return from suspension. Since key player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be recalled to the starting XI as well, home win should be considered.
The Whites defeated Crystal Palace at home on Monday evening, but seeing that they struggle in matches against top-table sides, Arsenal wins. Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Ian Carlo Poveda-Ocampos, Rodrigo Moreno, and Adam Forshaw are all out of contention with injuries for the visitors.
After holding Manchester United to a 3-3 draw at Old Trafford, Everton will be aiming at Fulham in the Premier League round 24. The Toffees showed character in their last league match, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in the English top flight. A man to watch in the home team will be Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who scored his 13th goal of the season in the Old Trafford showdown.
The Cottagers, are fighting hard to avoid relegation to the Championship. The capital club do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team recording only two wins in the process. Carlo Ancelotti can count on key players for Sunday’s clash, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
