Sunday's Premier League predictions including Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Premier League fixtures, including Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur.

Bournemouth vs. Aston Villa (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Fresh from confirming a place in the knockout rounds of the Europa Conference League, Aston Villa meet a resurgent Bournemouth in Sunday's Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium.

Unai Emery's men bested Legia Warsaw 2-1 on Thursday, in a game that was overshadowed by despicable scenes of violence outside the ground, while the Cherries made it back-to-back wins by seeing off Sheffield United 3-1 last weekend.

We say: Bournemouth 1-2 Aston Villa

With Tavernier back on the goal trail and Dominic Solanke more than capable of capitalising on any weary legs in the Villa backline, another clean sheet-less afternoon likely awaits Emery's men, but the visitors' ability to fight fire with fire has been apparent throughout the season.

The Lions struggle to blow teams away on rival territory compared to their Villa Park fortress, and while a rejuvenated Bournemouth should give them an excellent run for their money, we still expect the visitors' attacking firepower to come to the fore in a narrow success, even if Watkins is unable to complete the full 90.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea vs. Brighton (Sunday, 2.00pm)

A relentless December schedule commences on Sunday for Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion, who square off at Stamford Bridge in an intriguing Premier League encounter.

The Blues were subjected to a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend, while Roberto De Zerbi's men are into the Europa League knockout rounds thanks to a 1-0 beating of AEK Athens on Thursday.

We say: Chelsea 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

As suspensions and injuries pile up on both sides, neither manager should witness their team at their free-flowing best on Sunday, where Brighton's streak of both scoring and conceding in Premier League games looks set to continue.

Home has not been where the heart is for Chelsea throughout 2023, but with an array of bright attacking options ready to capitalise on Brighton's defensive woes, we have faith in the Blues to right the wrongs of last weekend and make it back-to-back wins over De Zerbi's team.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Liverpool vs. Fulham (Sunday, 2.00pm)

Hoping to extend their perfect home record in the 2023-24 season, Liverpool welcome Fulham to their Anfield fortress for Sunday's Premier League encounter.

The Reds thumped LASK Linz 4-0 on Thursday to qualify for the last 16 of the Europa League, while Marco Silva's men controversially ran out 3-2 winners versus Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night.

We say: Liverpool 3-0 Fulham

Several slices of luck were required to get Fulham over the line when Wolves came to town on Monday, and even with the Cottagers enjoying ample recuperation time, it should not count for much when they step out onto Liverpool's territory.

Scoring goals for fun in front of their own fans and with a plethora of well-rested big-hitters returning to the XI, Klopp's crop should prolong their 100% home record without encountering too many roadblocks on Sunday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

West Ham vs. Crystal Palace (Sunday, 2.00pm)

West Ham United will endeavour to claim a fifth successive victory in all competitions when they welcome Crystal Palace to the London Stadium for a Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Eagles, meanwhile, are seeking to avoid a third consecutive league defeat after losing their last two games to teams inside the bottom four.

We say: West Ham United 2-1 Crystal Palace

Both teams have scored in each of the last 12 Premier League meetings between West Ham and Crystal Palace, with 10 goals scored across the last two encounters last season, so goals are to be expected at the London Stadium on Sunday.

The Hammers enter this contest with a strong run of form under their belts and even if they have to cope without their top scorer Bowen once again, we believe they should do just enough to claim all three points against a Palace outfit who are missing two key players in Eze and Doucoure.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Man City vs. Spurs (Sunday, 4.30pm)

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they lock horns in an enticing contest at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

While Spurs are hoping to end a three-match losing streak, the Citizens are seeking to avoid going three top-flight games without a win for the first time since 2017.

We say: Manchester City 3-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Another entertaining encounter filled with goalmouth action could be in store on Sunday considering the last four league meetings between these two teams at the Etihad have produced an average of over four goals per game.

Postecoglou's desire to stick with a high defensive line amidst an injury crisis is yet to be vindicated, and persisting with such a tactic this weekend could prove costly against a rampant Man City outfit who have already scored 26 goals across their nine home matches this season.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.
