Premier League week 26 predictions including Manchester City vs. West Ham

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all four of this week's Premier League matches, including Manchester City vs. West Ham United.



Everton vs. Crystal Palace (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Everton will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run in the Premier League to five matches when they welcome Crystal Palace to Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Toffees came from two goals behind to beat Watford 3-2 at Vicarage Road last weekend, but Palace lost at home to Sheffield United to make it six league games without a win.

We say: Everton 2-1 Crystal Palace

Palace have struggled for results in 2020 but certainly deserve respect for their away form. Everton will be feeling pretty good about themselves at the moment, though, and we fancy a narrow home win here.

Brighton vs. Watford (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Two teams with relegation fears will lock horns in the Premier League on Saturday as Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Watford to the Amex Stadium.

Brighton are currently 15th in the Premier League table with 26 points, while Watford sit three points behind in 19th ahead of the huge fixture this weekend.

We say: Brighton 1-1 Watford

This is a really, really tough match to predict. Both managers will feel that they cannot afford to suffer a defeat, which is likely to create a cagey and tight encounter. We fancy a low-scoring draw at the Amex Stadium this weekend.

Sheffield United vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 2pm)

Sheffield United play host to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon with the opportunity to move within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League standings.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth make the trip to Bramall Lane looking to move clear of the relegation zone with their third successive win in the top flight.

We say: Sheffield United 2-0 Bournemouth

While Bournemouth will travel to Yorkshire full of confidence, we cannot back against a Sheffield United side in front of their own supporters. It may be cagey for a time, but the Blades should be too strong for the Cherries.

Man City vs. West Ham (Saturday, 4.30pm)

Manchester City head into Sunday's Premier League fixture with West Ham United looking to extend their advantage over third-placed Leicester City to five points.

Meanwhile, West Ham make the daunting trip to the Etihad Stadium requiring at least a point to move outside of the relegation zone.

We say: Manchester City 4-1 West Ham United

While West Ham have troubled City in front of their own supporters in the past, we are predicting one-way traffic this weekend. Guardiola will expect a positive response from his team, and they could deliver with a relentless attacking performance.
