Liverpool have the chance to return to the highest of the Premier League on Sunday after they journey to relegation-threatened Fulham. Leaders Manchester Metropolis are in FA Cup quarterfinal motion at Swansea 24-hours earlier and Model Ambassador Michael Owen once more shared his ideas solely with BetVictor on all of the weekend video games.
Bournemouth v Newcastle United
Newcastle have solely picked up two factors from the final 18 obtainable on the street, however they confirmed their resilience and high quality to come back from two-down to beat Everton at St James’ Park final weekend. Bournemouth returned to profitable methods with a snug success at Huddersfield on the weekend, however I really feel it will likely be some extent apiece again on the Vitality Stadium. The Magpies must look out for the Ryan Fraser/Callum Wilson axis who’ve mixed for 9 PL targets already this season – the final duo to hit double figures had been Denis Bergkamp and Nicolas Anelka for Arsenal again within the 1998-99 season.
Michael’s prediction: 1-1
Burnley v Leicester Metropolis
The outcomes didn’t go Burnley’s method over the weekend and the wins for Cardiff and Southampton imply that the Clarets will kick off in opposition to Leicester simply a few factors above the drop zone.
Burnley have misplaced their final three league video games – having gone eight unbeaten beforehand – whereas the Foxes have gained two of their final three league video games since they parted firm with Claude Puel. It seems certain to be tight and tense, however I really feel if there’s to be a winner at Turf Moor it will likely be the Foxes who take most factors and give Brendan Rodgers’ his first win on the street.
Michael’s prediction: 1-2
West Ham v Huddersfield City
West Ham had been disappointing at Cardiff on the weekend, however they’re taken to win their third league dwelling sport on the spin for the primary time since they moved into the London Stadium. The Terriers dwelling defeat to Bournemouth means they’re 15 factors from security with simply eight video games to play and supervisor Jan Siewert will already be making ready for all times within the Championship.
Michael’s prediction: 3-0
Fulham v Liverpool
Fulham have misplaced 9 of their final ten league video games and it’s laborious to see them denting Liverpool’s title hopes and giving themselves a shot within the arm with regard to their slim likelihood of beating the drop. Sadio Mane has scored eight instances in his final eight PL video games for the Reds and I can be shocked and upset if Liverpool weren’t again on the high of the desk come Sunday night time.
Michael’s suggestion: 1-3
Everton v Chelsea
Everton have failed to attain of their final 5 league video games in opposition to Chelsea and I really feel the West London aspect will return to the capital with all three factors from a low-scoring sport at Goodison. Marco Silva has but to beat a “big six” aspect since he took over the reins at Goodison and I really feel the wait will proceed regardless of Chelsea having a Europa League tie in Kiev on Thursday night.
Michael’s suggestion: 0-1
Watford v Crystal Palace
These sides final met within the FA Cup semi-final of 2015/16 when Palace had been 2-1 winners at Wembley with targets from Yannick Bolasie and Connor Wickham.
I fancy the Hornets to get revenge for that loss and inflict a 3rd defeat of the season on the Eagles having finished the double over them within the PL already this time period.
Palace are, arguably, a greater crew on the street than at Selhurst Park however I simply choose the Hornets in what’s more likely to be an in depth and entertaining cup tie.
Michael’s prediction: 2-1
Swansea Metropolis v Manchester Metropolis
Metropolis have scored at the very least 4 targets of their three FA Cup ties to date this season and I can’t see the Swans stopping Pep Guardiola’s aspect who made serene progress into the quarterfinal of the Champions League midweek in opposition to a reasonable Schalke aspect.
The hosts have misplaced six of their final seven ties in opposition to Premier League opposition and I can’t see them creating what could be a large Cup shock on the Liberty Stadium.
Michael’s prediction: 0-3
Wolves v Manchester United
United misplaced their unbeaten home document below Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the Emirates on Sunday however that they had their alternatives – particularly within the opening 45 minutes – and I really feel they may edge the tie-of-the-round at Molineux.
Wolves haven’t reached the final 4 since 1997-98 and I really feel they must wait at the very least one other yr earlier than they attain the semi-final.
Michael’s prediction: 1-2
Millwall v Brighton
Brighton are unbeaten of their final six video games on the Den (W3 D3) all between 2009 and 2015 and I really feel this tie may go all the way in which to extra-time and probably penalties.
The Lions have reached the quarter-final 11 instances whereas that is simply Brighton’s fourth and the primary since they got here so near lifting the Trophy within the 1983 Ultimate in opposition to Manchester United.
It guarantees to be a hard-fought tie and I can’t cut up the edges in 90 minutes.
Michael’s prediction: 1-1
Michael’s weekend wager: West Ham, Watford and Liverpool at 21/5
