Manchester united Vs Everton
The red devils come into this clash as the Premier League’s top scorers, hardly a surprise after their 9-0 win over Southampton. However, Everton are set to offer a tougher-test than Saints offered in their capitulation on Tuesday.
The hosts head into this clash with confidence having scored 19 goals in their last five home league games. The 9-0 may have inflated that, but the drive to push for more in a game that was already won shows the attacking intent which has been imbued in this United side. With that considered alongside Everton’s scoring streak, both teams to score is our predictiion.
The Red Devils have already claimed two wins against Everton this season, with Edinson Cavani scoring in each of them. The forward scored in the 9-0 rout before being forced off. He’s likely to return up top here and we’re backing him to continue his scoring run against the Toffees.
Coventry Vs Watford
These two sides served up a cracker in November’s reverse fixture, but there’s reason to expect a much cagier encounter in this Saturday’s match-up at St Andrews.
Watford ran out 3-2 winners in the last meeting, but the balance of results for both teams this term suggests we’re unlikely to see as many thrills and spills here.
Only two of Watford’s 13 away trips this season have produced over 2.5 goals and despite the Hornets still being in the automatic promotion mix, they have managed just a poultry seven goals on the road, while conceding just nine.
And it’s been a similar story for Coventry at home, especially of late. The Sky Blues have netted and shipped at just a touch over a goal per game and four of their last five outings at St Andrews have also generated under 2.5.
QPR Vs Blackburn rovers
The home side have struggled at Loftus Road over recent weeks, scoring just one goal and taking a solitary point from their last five Championship fixtures on their own patch.
That is one less victory than Blackburn have managed on their travels this season, with Rovers having won their last two on the road against Birmingham and Middlesbrough without conceding.
Blackburn have also won on two of their last three visits to Loftus Road and we are predicting them to secure another three points on Saturday.
We also predict that Rovers will secure that victory to nil, as they have kept three clean sheets.
Prediction black burn rovers win
Celtic Vs Motherwell
Rangers look away and gone in the Scottish Premiership title race, but Celtic can cement their place in second with an entertaining win over Motherwell.
Celtic trail their Old Firm rivals Rangers by 23 points and although they have two games in hand, the damage appears to have already been done.
But Neil Lennon’s side regained the winning touch with an emphatic 4-0 win at Kilmarnock on Tuesday and they could repeat the feat against a Motherwell side that have won only one of their last seven away games.
Well, who finished third last season, are failing to emulate those standards and they find themselves ninth this term. The visitors are just two points above second-bottom Ross County despite consecutive 2-1 wins over Ross and Dundee United.
However, Motherwell’s winning run looks likely to come to an end at Celtic, who have won each of their last seven league meetings between the pair.
Celtic have won eight of their 13 home league games.
The hosts have recorded their last six league wins to nil and we predict a similar outcome here.
Prediction Celtic win
Barnsley Vs Derby
Wayne Rooney certainly seems to be enjoying life in management, as he currently has Derby on a three-game winning streak, with each of those successes coming by a 1-0 scoreline.
Indeed, the former England captain has guided the Rams off the bottom of the table since taking charge, initially on a temporary basis, as he has lost just four of his 14 matches at the helm.
Despite his goalscoring exploits as a player, Rooney’s Derby side are the lowest scorers in the Championship.
Barnsley have also been involved in low-scoring games of late, as six of their last seven matches have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction over 2.5
