Sunday's Premier League predictions including Aston Villa vs. Bournemouth

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for all of today's Premier League fixtures, including Aston Villa vs. Bournemouth.

Goodison Park hosts what has been colloquially dubbed the 'points deduction derby' on Sunday, as Premier League relegation scrappers Everton and Nottingham Forest do battle on Merseyside.

The Toffees are reeling from a 6-0 slaughter at the hands of Chelsea on Monday night, while their visitors fought back to clinch a 2-2 draw versus Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out.

We say: Everton 0-1 Nottingham Forest

Statistics suggest that Nottingham Forest need only find the back of the net once to come away with a positive result, as Everton have lost 17 and drawn five of their last 22 Premier League home games when conceding, and each of their most recent 10 Goodison Park successes in the top flight has been to nil.

Given the superior quality that Forest possess in the final third, and Everton's fresh batch of defensive injury concerns, that scenario is not beyond the realm of possibility, and Santo's men may require just the one goal to leapfrog their fellow basement battlers.

Following a nail-biting success in Europe, Aston Villa return to their pursuit of a place in the Premier League's final top four, as they host mid-table Bournemouth on Sunday.

Villa scraped through to the Europa Conference League semi-finals with a tense penalty-shootout win in midweek, while their visitors came close to doing the double over Manchester United last time out.

We say: Aston Villa 2-1 Bournemouth

In a battle of two Basque bosses, Unai Emery could come out on top - though Andoni Iraola's Bournemouth are sure to push a weary Aston Villa side all the way. The hosts may have heavy legs, but their visitors concede an average of two goals per game on the road and can be caught out at the back.

Crystal Palace vs. West Ham (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Fresh from condemning Liverpool to their first Premier League home defeat in a year and a half, Crystal Palace host London rivals West Ham United at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles stunned the Kop with a 1-0 triumph at Anfield last week, while David Moyes's men bowed out of the Europa League at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen in midweek.

We say: Crystal Palace 2-1 West Ham United

West Ham's level of fight was to be admired on Thursday, but Moyes is already working with limited options for change and is facing a huge decision regarding Bowen's presence in the first XI.

With Palace boasting fresher legs, riding the crest of the Anfield wave and also consistently finding the back of the net on home turf, we have faith in Glasner's men to prolong their feel-good factor while denting their visitors' hopes of a quick return to the continent.
