MANCHESTER CITY V WYCOMBE
In that match, Manchester City had 64% possession and 16 shots on goal with 1 on target. Southampton had 10 attempts on goal with 2 on target.
Matches with Manchester City have usually been engaging affairs of late with plenty of scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past 6 games, a total of 21 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 17 of these coming from Manchester City. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, though.

Gareth Ainsworth's Wycombe Wanderers have seen their efforts on goal rewarded a total of 6 times in the course of their previous 6 matches. The aggregate of goals that have been scored against them during the equivalent period equals 9.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
FULHAM V LEEDS
Fulham will be looking for an improved result here following a 1-2 Championship loss in their previous game against Reading.
In that game, Fulham had 66% possession and 25 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. The scorer for Fulham was Rodrigo Muniz (86'). Reading got 8 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Ovie Ejaria (19', 53') scored for Reading.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that not much more can be done by the Fulham backline. Fulham have been miserly, seeing the total number of goals that have gone in at their end during their previous six outings standing at 4. Previous results aside, it remains to be seen whether that trend shall be maintained in this game or not.
In the game prior to this, Leeds United drew 1-1 in the Premier League match with Newcastle United.
In that game, Leeds United had 65% possession and 21 attempts at goal with 9 of them on target. The only player to score for Leeds United was Raphinha (13'). Newcastle United got 17 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Allan Saint-Maximin (44') was the scorer for Newcastle United.
The numbers tell their own story, and Leeds United have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 12 goals overall. At the back, Leeds United have clearly had some problems.
Prediction: Both teams to score
BURNLEY V ROCHDALE
Burnley won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 0-1 Premier League loss in their previous game against Arsenal.
In that game, Burnley had 45% possession and 18 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. For their opponents, Arsenal got 13 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Martin Ødegaard (30') scored for Arsenal.
Burnley have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record equals just 3 versus opposition teams over their last 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Burnley have also seen the tally of goals that have gone against them come to 9. That kind of pattern might not follow through into this game, though.
Last time out, Rochdale drew 1-1 in the League Two match with Mansfield Town.
The only scorer from Rochdale was Danny Cashman (50'). Danny Johnson (72') was the scorer for Mansfield Town.
Over the course of their last six clashes, Rochdale have amassed the sum of 14 goals. Rochdale have also not failed to score on each one of those occasions. Over that period, they’ve had 4 goals go into their own net.
Prediction: Both teams to score
