Ten Premier League matches take place this weekend for Matchday 24 fixtures and WhichBookie football analyst Matt Le Tissier is back to share his opinion on how he thinks the games will play out.
Read Matt’s thoughts below to see which teams he’s backing this week.
Leicester v Liverpool (12:30 Saturday)
This is one of the tough matches to call this week. The result could be any of the three and it wouldn’t really surprise me. I would have a little bet on this one on Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals here.

Crystal Palace v Burnley (15:00 Saturday)
Again, I can’t see a clear favourite in this game and so I’d have to go for a draw. I’d want to see if Zaha was playing first before committing to a bet as he’s that influential for Palace. I think the value is in the draw here and I expect a low scoring game.

Man City v Tottenham (17:30 Saturday)
It’s almost impossible to bet against Man City at the moment with them having had 15 wins on the spin. It’s just whether or not it’s worth doing so at odds of around 1/3. They’re a little short for me. I know Spurs managed to put West Brom away last weekend but they’ve not been in particularly good form. I’d probably go for Man City -1 and I’ll be putting that in my treble this week.

Brighton v Aston Villa (20:00 Saturday)
I’ve been really impressed with Villa and they’ve surprised me this season. They started really well then had a bit of a dodgy spell and I expected them to fall away a little bit but they haven’t. They’ve been impressive in quite a lot of games this season and their win against Arsenal last weekend was a real boost for them.
Despite their win against Spurs, Brighton’s home record isn’t great and I fancy Villa to be strong enough to take them and at 8/5 they’ll be my NAP this week.

Southampton v Wolves (12:00 Sunday)
I think Southampton are a good price here. Wolves rested a few players when we played them on Thursday night but I think odds of 7/5 for a Saints win is good.
We looked a bit more like ourselves on Thursday and I’d expect Vestergaard to come back into the team and for Che Adams to start so I think we’ll be stronger as well.

West Brom v Man Utd (14:00 Sunday)
Odds of 1/3 for Man Utd to win away from home isn’t particularly attractive. To boost the odds a bit, I’ll be backing United -1 and putting them in my treble along with City and Chelsea on Monday

Arsenal v Leeds (16:30 Sunday)
This is another tough one to call. Leeds blow very hot or cold but you can almost guarantee that it won’t end in a draw. They’ve had the fewest draws in the Premier League so far this season (2) along with Villa & Sheff Utd.
With Arsenal at just under evens and Leeds at just over 3/1, I’m probably more tempted to back Leeds. This match could quite easily go either way and at these odds, I think there’s only one bet in this game.
|Arsenal v Leeds
Everton v Fulham (19:00 Sunday)
Everton to beat Fulham will be part of my double this week. I’m a bit surprised at the odds on Everton which I guess may be because Fulham have been a bit more solid lately having drawn 8 of their last 11 league matches. They also haven’t been letting in a huge number of goals like they were earlier on in the season. However, I can’t see Everton not winning here.

West Ham v Sheffield United (18:00 Monday)
The second part of my double will be West Ham to beat Sheff Utd. I’ve been really impressed with West Ham and although Sheff Utd have started to pick up a few results, West Ham are in really decent form and I can’t see any other result than a home win.

Chelsea v Newcastle (20:00 Monday)
Chelsea -1 will be the final part of my treble this week. Losing Callum Wilson is a massive blow for Newcastle and although they’ve won two of their last three, I think Chelsea should have more than enough to get a couple of goals in this match.
