There are four games in the Premier League this Sunday, and it could be a good day to tick ‘yes’ in the Both Teams To Score box. Firstly, Newcastle visit The Hawthorns for a proper ‘relegation six-pointer’ clash with West Brom.
The hosts enter the game nine points behind Steve Bruce’s men, so it really is the last chance saloon for West Brom. Sam Allardyce will have to throw off the shackles and I expect this to be a more open game than usual between these teams.
There should be chances at both ends as a draw really does nothing for West Brom, so despite Newcastle’s injury concerns, I can see them getting on the scoresheet here.

The next game up also promises goals as Fulham visit the struggling Liverpool. And yes, you read that correctly, Liverpool are struggling. Mason Mount’s midweek goal handed the Reds their fifth home league defeat in a row, a record that Jurgen Klopp certainly did not want.
Klopp will surely come out all guns blazing, to try and stop Liverpool’s alarming slide down the table, but that could play right into Fulham’s hands. Scott Parker’s men were extremely unlucky against Spurs in midweek, they dominated the second half and had a penalty ruled out by VAR after a debatable handball. A rule that now will be changed at the end of the season.
The Cottagers have been playing well lately and are within touching distance of Newcastle and Premier League safety. They will have no fears travelling to Anfield and they are sure to get their chances against a Reds team low on confidence.
The Manchester Derby takes centre stage on Sunday, and Pep Guardiola will be looking to keep the good times rolling for the hosts. City have now shot 14 points clear of their opposition at the top of the table and are cruising towards another title.
City have won their last 21 games, a staggering run of form that has encompassed not only league victories, but also comprehensive wins in the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Champions League. City are simply unstoppable and with the arsenal at his disposal, it seems inevitable that Pep’s team will score.
They have however conceded in three of their last four league games, and it’s worth Both Teams To Score again here. Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are excellent counter-attackers and they will be desperate to give their supporters something to cheer about as the blue half of the city runs away with the title.
The final game on Sunday sees a London Derby as Spurs host Crystal Palace. Jose Mourinho will be hoping his side have turned a corner after a dismal run of form saw them plummet down the table.
Spurs have now won three games in a row, scoring nine in the process. Gareth Bale finally looks like he is match fit, and the big money loan signing from Real Madrid has formed a lethal partnership with Kane and Son. Mourinho finally seems to have got the balance to his attack right and Spurs should have no trouble scoring goals.
Tottenham’s problems have mainly been down the other end. The Spurs defence has struggled all season, and they have had too many howlers to trust them keeping a clean sheet. Palace’s last away game saw them beat rivals Brighton. And the wily Roy Hodgson has got the team playing well again after a barren spell of results. Tottenham’s leaky defence is sure to offer up chances, and yes for Both Teams To Score is where the value is.
