Crystal Palace v Burnley – Draw
Palace and Burnley are both propping up the Premier League table, with just one point apiece and an equal goal difference of -3. Six of the Clarets’ last 12 clashes with the Eagles have ended in a draw, with the two teams sharing the spoils 16 times in total.
Southampton v Newcastle – Home win
The Saints will enter this game with confidence, on the back of a morale boosting win against West Ham. Southampton smashed Newcastle 4-0 in this same fixture last season, whilst the Magpies are still without a Premier League victory this term.
Stoke v Leicester – Draw
There have been two draws between these spirited sides in their last three clashes. The newly promoted Foxes have shown impressive grit so far this season, managing to hold big-guns Arsenal and Everton to draws, whilst the Potters pulled off a remarkable win against Manchester City.
Sunderland v Tottenham – Away win
Spurs put seven past a leaky Sunderland side in their two Premier League victories against the Black Cats last term, and have won all of their last eight encounters with the Wearside team. Tottenham are also in fine form, having won four out of five games in all competitions.
West Brom v Everton – Away win
Everton have only been defeated once in their last seven encounters with the Baggies, and have managed to score seven goals in just three Premier League games so far this term. Forward Steven Naismith is also enjoying a rich vein of form, having netted three times.
Blackburn v Wigan – Home win
Rovers have won six of the last seven meetings with their Lancashire rivals at home, and the Latics are yet to pick up any points on the road this term. Blackburn are unbeaten at Ewood Park in the league this term too, so all signs say three points for the hosts.
Cardiff v Norwich – Home win
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Bluebirds have a 100 per cent record at home this season, while the Canaries have been hot and cold on their travels. Cardiff have also won on each of Norwich’s last two visits to the Welsh capital, and this long cross-country trek for Neil Adams will yield nothing.
Charlton v Watford – Draw
A change of management for the Hornets, plus the fact first-choice striker Matej Vydra has been away on international duty, means a share of the spoils from this trip to London. Charlton have three wins out of three at The Valley in all competitions, but will be content to take a point here.
Reading v Fulham – Home win
Nigel Adkins’ Royals are in far better form than Fulham for this battle and have assembled a strikeforce following a summer of change. Fulham’s own attack is misfiring and Felix Magath’s radical revolution will take time to be effective.
Liverpool v Aston Villa – Home win
Despite Liverpool not being able to register a win at Anfield in their last three attempts against Villa, they should have enough to see off Paul Lambert’s overachieving side. A narrow home victory is on the cards.
Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid – Home win
There have only been two draws in their last 18 meetings in all competitions, so back home side Real to grab a close victory at the Bernabeu. Carlo Ancelotti’s side thrashed Atleti twice last term in the Champions League final (4-1) and Copa del Rey (3-0 first leg).
Nottingham Forest v Derby – Draw
Both these East Midlands rivals are in fine form, and should both feature heavily in the promotion race. A share of the spoils will not please either Reds or Rams fans, but a point looks likely for Stuart Pearce and Steve McClaren in this delicious derby.
Parma v AC Milan – Away win
Parma did the double over Milan in Serie A last season, but the Italian giants are a new-look side following a productive summer, so back them for victory. Filippo Inzaghi’s men currently top the table, after their 3-1 opening day win over Lazio.
Manchester United v QPR – Home win
United have won their last five fixtures in all competitions against the Hoops, and not lost in the Premier League era (12 games, with 10 victories). Louis van Gaal splashed the cash on new attacking talent this summer, so expect QPR to be put to the sword.
Hull v West Ham – Draw
Both sides have gained a win this season so far from their opening three games. Half of their last six meetings at Hull have been draws, so back that outcome once more.
