Saturday 12.30pm: Manchester City v Brentford

TV: BT Sport 1

Manchester City are going to win this, they’re 100% in all competitions at home with 11 wins from 11 at The Etihad so it’s hard to see any other result. They’ve scored two or more goals in each of their last 15 home Premier League games so it’s telling you that there’s going to be goals in this.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Erling Haaland’s scored 23 in 17 appearances! You’ve got to fancy them… it’s just a case of how many goals it’ll be. I know that’s hard on Brentford but they’ve not won any of their last seven away Premier League games this season and they’ve kept only one clean sheet in their last 23 away games.

This is all pointing towards Manchester City. Do I even need to bother going on about the statistics behind it? I’m going for City to win 3-0. If you want a goal scorer it’s got to be Haaland to Score Anytime.

Saturday 5.30pm: Newcastle v Chelsea

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

Chelsea are hard to predict. They had a good run under Graham Potter and all of a sudden they’re losing. They’ve scored only 17 goals from 13 games. At the same point last season they’d scored 31, Chelsea.

They’ve lost three of their last six away games and Newcastle are flying, aren’t they? My goodness, unbeaten in nine Premier League games winning six of those with the joint-best defence on 11 conceded with Arsenal.

Defensively they’re good. They’ve won the last three Premier League games at home, scoring 10 goals in the process. Miguel Almiron has scored seven in seven, I think Newcastle will win this but Both Teams Will Score.

You watch Almiron and everything’s just going for him at the moment. I’ve got Almiron down to Score Anytime, as you can imagine, in a Newcastle Win.

Saturday 7.45pm: Wolves v Arsenal

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

I do expect Arsenal to wrestle top spot back from City here. Have I been surprised with them this season? Yes. Has the bubble burst yet? No, it certainly hasn’t.

I’ve been with my two good mates Paul Merson and Charlie Nicholas this week and oh my god they are bubbling! It’s nice to see them up there and everyone else bar them and City have all had a bit of a blip.

Arsenal are doing well, I do expect them to win this. What do we make of Wolves? They’ve taken just one point from their last four Premier League games, losing six of the last eight and they’re the lowest scorers in the league with eight goals.

Arsenal won both of these games home and away last season so I’m going for Arsenal to Win this. I can’t see Wolves scoring, Arsenal have a great defence and they’re really good away from home. I’ll go Arsenal to Win 2-0 and I do expect Gabriel Jesus to Score Anytime.

Sunday 2pm: Brighton v Aston Villa

TV: Sky Sports Premier League

Unai Emery was absolutely bouncing last week but he’ll know there’s still work to do. Villa are a good side but I thought Manchester United were very, very poor and it was a comfortable victory in the end for Aston Villa.

You look back to that 4-0 when they were beaten up at Newcastle and I do fancy Brighton to Win this. Villa have won two of the last three Premier League and you think how good that is but I don’t see them wining this.

Having said that, Villa won both of these games last season but this is against a different Brighton side, they’ve won their last three away in all competitions scoring 10 goals. They’ve won their last two away Premier League games scoring seven so I think they’re having a great time and they’ve got a great defence as well.

Bighton have so many players who could be on the scoresheet that it’s a bit tricky but I’m going for Alexis Mac Allister. He’s a really good player, really underrated so I’ll go for Mac Allister to Score Anytime.

Sunday 4.30pm: Fulham v Manchester United
