EPL Tips for 19th February 2023
Fulham – Nottingham Forest: Both Teams To Score (5/6)
At home, Fulham have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four. Nottingham Forest have managed to score in their last five and are on their best run of the season, managing to stay unbeaten in those five games, with 3 wins too. I expect an open game, with both teams going for the three points.

Arsenal – Brentford: Both Teams To Score (20/23)
Following a shock defeat last weekend against Everton, the league leaders will know the importance of three points this weekend. Unfortunately, they welcome a Brentford side that are on an incredible run. Unbeaten for nine, they’ve also managed four wins from five and should believe in their chances of at least staying unbeaten. In that same period of nine games, they only failed to score once. The Gunners have only failed to score once in their last thirteen home games. They’ve only managed two clean sheets in those thirteen so everything suggests both teams will score this weekend.
Leeds – Manchester United: Manchester United Win (10/11)
Even though Leeds did manage a draw away to Manchester United midweek and away from home, I expect the visitors to learn and use that performance as fuel to get at them from the first whistle. Leeds have not won in their last eight league games and have also only managed only one home win in their last eight too. The visitors can’t afford to drop points and allow the chasing pack to gain confidence and move closer to them in the table. I expect a strong away performance and a win.
Arsenal – Brentford: Arsenal To Win And Both Teams To Score (2/1)
In their last twelve home games, Arsenal have won eleven and drawn once. An incredible run. In their last thirteen at home, they’ve only managed two clean sheets. This would suggest that a win and both teams scoring is the most likely result. Brentford are also finding it easy to score, failing to score just once in their last nine.
Liverpool – Everton: Liverpool To Win And Both Teams To Score (11/5)
Whilst Liverpool are in turmoil, confidence has been rediscovered across the city at Everton, who caused a huge upset last weekend, by getting a win against runaway leaders Arsenal in
Sean Dyche’s first game in charge. Though Liverpool have suffered three defeats in their last four, they were away from home. I expect home advantage to play it’s part, plus the pressure that is building and the fact it’s a derby, should give the players no excuse to go all out for the three points. Though it’s incredible to believe, some may suggest that Klopp’s future may ride on this result
