Saturday's Premier League predictions including Fulham vs. Chelsea

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Premier League action, including the West London derby between Fulham and Chelsea.


Wolves vs. West Brom (Saturday, 12.30pm)

West Midlands rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion square off on Saturday afternoon having each put together lengthy winless streaks in the Premier League.

While the home side have gone five matches without recording maximum points, the Baggies last recorded success on November 28 when they edged out bottom-placed Sheffield United.

We say: Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 West Bromwich Albion


Having failed to gain a response out of the West Brom squad since his arrival, Allardyce will be hoping that local rivalry can trigger a strong performance from his players. With Wolves also struggling at both ends of the pitch, we are backing this game to end in a draw after a heated battle at Molineux.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Leeds vs. Brighton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Leeds United and Brighton & Hove Albion will both be seeking a return to winning ways in the Premier League when they face off at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites have suffered back-to-back losses in all competitions, while Brighton went down 1-0 to Manchester City last time out in the league to remain in relegation trouble.

We say: Leeds United 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion


Leeds may have lost successive games in all competitions, but they have won back-to-back matches at Elland Road and are seeking three in a row there in the Premier League for the first time since 2001.

Brighton have struggled for wins all season, picking up just two victories in their 18 top-flight outings, and we cannot see them taking any points from this first top-flight encounter between the sides in 39 years.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

West Ham vs. Burnley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

West Ham United play host to Burnley on Saturday afternoon looking to extend their unbeaten streak in the Premier League to four matches.

While the Hammers currently occupy 10th position, the Clarets have remained in 16th spot after losing two of their last three fixtures.

We say: West Ham United 1-1 Burnley


With neither side making much of an impression in the final third of late, we do not expect many goals at the London Stadium. While the Hammers should have the majority of possession, it is difficult to back against the visitors claiming a share of the spoils.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Fulham vs. Chelsea (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on local rivals Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday evening.

The Blues have dropped down to ninth position in the table, having been victorious in just one of their last six in the league, while Fulham have drawn each of their last five matches to sit in 18th.

We say: Fulham 1-2 Chelsea


This has all of the makings of a very, very interesting game of football, particularly as Fulham will enter the contest off the back of an excellent performance and result. Chelsea's league form has been disappointing in recent weeks, but we just fancy Lampard's side to edge their way to all three points on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Leicester vs. Southampton (Saturday, 8.00pm)

Leicester City and Southampton meet at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening with both teams looking to boost their hopes of claiming a top-four spot at the end of the season.

While the Saints currently occupy seventh position in the Premier League standings, they sit just three points adrift of their fourth-placed hosts.

We say: Leicester City 2-2 Southampton


Given their attack-minded philosophies, we expect plenty of goals to be scored at the King Power Stadium. While the Foxes are the favourites to prevail in the East Midlands, the extra rest could play its part in helping Southampton earn a point from an entertaining tussle.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to Sheffield United sitting six points adrift of leaders Manchester United in the Premier League standings.

While the home side are nine points behind 17th-placed Brighton & Hove Albion, the midweek triumph over Newcastle United has given hope to Chris Wilder's team as they bid to avoid relegation.

We say: Sheffield United 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur


Mourinho cut a frustrated figure on Wednesday night, and we expect that to lead to a response from his players. Despite the Blades being on a high after edging out Newcastle, they may struggle to cope with Spurs' extra quality in the final third.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Liverpool vs. Man Utd (Sunday, 4.30pm)

The biggest fixture in the English calendar will take on even more significance this weekend when champions Liverpool host new Premier League leaders Manchester United at Anfield.

The two most successful clubs in the history of English football currently occupy the top two positions in the table, separated by only three points heading into this mouth-watering Merseyside meeting.

We say: Liverpool 2-1 Manchester United


This is one of the most finely-poised meetings between these two great rivals in recent memory.

Liverpool, the dominant force in English football over the last year or so but suffering a slight blip now, take on a league-leading Manchester United side showing the first signs of restoring their former glories - it could hardly be set up better.

It is a match which could realistically go either way, but Liverpool's remarkable home record gives them the slight edge as far as we are concerned. Indeed, a showdown with their fiercest enemies, who have just knocked them off the top of the table, could be the perfect fixture to snap Klopp's side out of their recent malaise.

Either way, it promises to be an unmissable contest. These big games can often flatter to deceive, but Sunday's showdown looks unlikely to be one of those occasions.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Man City vs. Crystal Palace (Sunday, 7.15pm)

Manchester City will be looking to make it eight victories in a row in all competitions when they continue their Premier League campaign at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday night.

Pep Guardiola's side have won their last four in the league to rise into third spot in the table, while Palace, who picked up a point at Arsenal on Thursday night, are currently down in 13th.

We say: Manchester City 2-0 Crystal Palace


Palace deserve huge credit for their performance at Arsenal, and the Eagles will enter this weekend's contest in strong form. City are on a bit of a roll at the moment, though, and we are finding it difficult to back against Guardiola's side, who are now regarded by many to be the favourites for the title.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
