Brentford – Watford: Both Teams To Score (8/11)
Since Ranieri arrived at Watford, they’ve averaged 1.6 goals a game. Managing to score against Manchester City, Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester United. Brenford have only managed the single clean sheet from their last ten league games but have also scored 15 in that period. Only failing to score in two. I expect a very open game, with both teams going for the three points.

Liverpool – Aston Villa: Both Teams To Score and Liverpool Win (6/4)
Since Gerrard arrived at Villa Park, he’s guided his side to three wins from four. The one defeat coming against Manchester City, in a tight affair. I expect his side to give a good account of themselves on his return to Anfield, but Liverpool should have enough to get the win in the end.
Norwich – Manchester United: Both Teams To Score and Manchester Win (2/1)
A combination of the fact that Manchester United have only had two clean sheets from their last twelve in the league and the noticeable improvements at Norwich since Dean Smith’s appointment, has me thinking this will be a tough game for the visitors. I think they’ll get the win but will concede too.
Arsenal – Southampton: Both Teams To Score and Arsenal Win (9/4)
Until their humbling defeat to Liverpool, Arsenal had been charging up the table on an incredible run. They recovered with a 2-0 win at home to Newcastle but then fell to defeats to Manchester United and more worryingly, Everton. At home to Southampton, I think Arteta will be desperate to try and rediscover some momentum before the end of the year. Southampton do always pose a threat, failing to score in one of their last eight. That game being against Liverpool. They won’t lie down without a fight and I therefore expect Arsenal to have to outscore them to get the win
Crystal Palace – Everton: Both Teams To Score (19/20)
Two clean sheets from twelve for Everton, suggests Palace have a strong chance of scoring at least once. They too haven’t been the best defensively, managing the same amount of clean sheets from their last eleven. Both teams will have reason to think they can get the win. Palace had been unbeaten at home this season until their recent loss to Villa. Everton have ended a disastrous run with a strong win against Arsenal.
Leicester – Newcastle: Leicester Win (8/11)
I can’t see Newcastle having enough quality to cause Leicester any problems. One win from six is far from good enough for the home side who’ll need to start getting points if they aim to finish in the top six. There really can’t be any excuses for failing to get a win at home to Newcastle.
