Saturday's Premier League predictions including Arsenal vs. Newcastle United

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Premier League fixtures, including Arsenal vs. Newcastle United.


Aston Villa vs. Nott'm Forest (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Seeking to snap a three-game losing run at home across all competitions, Aston Villa lock horns with Nottingham Forest at Villa Park in Saturday afternoon's Premier League encounter.

Unai Emery's men triumphed 2-1 over Fulham in their latest top-flight affair, while the Tricky Trees were on the correct end of a 2-0 scoreline against West Ham United.

We say: Aston Villa 3-1 Nottingham Forest


While Nottingham Forest may be in a good moment and relishing the return to form of Hudson-Odoi, who has goals in each of his last three Premier League games, fresh concerns over Awoniyi's fitness are extremely untimely before a visit to a ground where Aston Villa just cannot stop scoring.

Some of the walls of the Villa Park castle may be crumbling, and defensive absentees should rule out the prospect of a rare clean sheet for the Lions, but their offensive firepower should prove too strong for Forest as Emery's men snap their home hoodoo.

Brighton vs. Everton (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Hoping to replicate last season's astonishing Amex Stadium slaughter, Everton head south to square off with Brighton & Hove Albion in Saturday's Premier League encounter.

The Seagulls welcome their Merseyside counterparts on the back of a 5-0 pummelling of Sheffield United, while Sean Dyche's troops held managerless Crystal Palace to a 1-1 draw on Monday.

We say: Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 Everton


Recent history suggests that Brighton will need to chalk up multiple goals to stand a chance of putting last year's result right, as in each of their nine Premier League games in which they have scored once in 2023-24, they have failed to win any of them.

However, an Everton side experiencing a painful plateau have just three goals to show from their last six top-flight games, and with Brighton seldom outfought at the Amex, De Zerbi's men should put three more points on the board this weekend.

Crystal Palace vs. Burnley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

The Oliver Glasner era commences on Saturday afternoon for Crystal Palace, who welcome Burnley to Selhurst Park in their latest Premier League encounter.

Ray Lewington led the Eagles to a 1-1 draw with Everton on Monday evening, whereas the Clarets were humiliated 5-0 at home to Arsenal on a rainy Turf Moor afternoon.

We say: Crystal Palace 1-0 Burnley


While Palace may take some time to adjust to Glasner's new approach, the Eagles could afford a pat on the back for their display against Everton and should face Burnley with a sturdy defensive structure.

As such, a Clarets side bereft of belief or rearguard discipline should be in for another disappointing afternoon in the capital, where Glasner's reign ought to get off to the perfect start.

Man Utd vs. Fulham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Top-four hopefuls Manchester United will endeavour to claim maximum points for the fifth consecutive Premier League game when they play host to Fulham at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The two teams meet for the first time since November 4 when Bruno Fernandes scored in the 91st minute to help the Red Devils secure a narrow 1-0 victory at Craven Cottage.

We say: Manchester United 3-1 Fulham


Man United may continue to show signs of weakness at the back, but they have found their groove in the final third since the turn of the year and will be full of confidence heading into Saturday's contest versus a Fulham side against whom they boast an impressive head-to-head record.

Fulham's miserable winless away run is a cause for concern, and although they held their own in the reverse fixture with the Red Devils, it is difficult to back against Ten Hag's resurgent side in front of an upbeat Old Trafford crowd.

Bournemouth vs. Man City (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Seeking to close the four-point gap to the Premier League summit, reigning champions Manchester City travel to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth on Saturday evening.

The two teams meet for the first time since November 4 when the Citizens cruised to a 6-1 victory over the Cherries at the Etihad Stadium.

We say: Bournemouth 1-3 Manchester City


Bournemouth have already been thrashed 4-0 at home by both Arsenal and Liverpool this season and their miserable record against Man City does not bode well ahead of Saturday's contest.

The Cherries will back themselves to find the net against a Citizens defence that has been far from watertight this season, but Guardiola's title-chasing side should ultimately have few problems outscoring their opponents en route to claiming three important points.

Arsenal vs. Newcastle (Saturday, 8.00pm)

An Arsenal side reeling from an excruciating injury-time goal host a Newcastle United team who rejoiced in a last-minute intervention in Saturday's Premier League clash at the Emirates.

The Gunners fell to a 1-0 loss in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League affair with Porto on Wednesday evening, while Eddie Howe's men left it late to snatch a point in a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth last weekend.

We say: Arsenal 2-1 Newcastle United


Three of Arsenal's last four Premier League games versus Newcastle have seen the Gunners fail to breach the Magpies' backline, and jellied legs on the hosts' end will do their prospects of rectifying Wednesday's meek attacking performance no good whatsoever.

However, Howe's men are not the same defensive force that they once were, and fuelled on by the perceived injustice of their loss to the visitors in November, we have faith in the Gunners to eke out a hard-earned triumph to remain on Liverpool's coat-tails.
