Bournemouth vs Newcastle

In a reduced Premier League schedule, due to the FA Cup Quarter-Finals, the first game up is one that has taken my interest because it's too close to call. Bournemouth and Newcastle go head-to-head in a 3pm kick-off this Saturday at Dean Court with both teams still not completely clear of the relegation dog fight.

Bournemouth started the season exceptionally well but their form has petered out over the past few months. Eddie Howe's team are 12th in the top flight but just 1 win in their last 6 league games has seen them drop off the pace. The good news is that the single win came in their last match but it was against a beleaguered Huddersfield side. That winless run before that game did include matches against Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester City so we perhaps shouldn't read too much into that.

Newcastle have stormed up the table with Rafa Benitez helping to guide them away from the relegation zone. Their safety for next season hasn't been confirmed yet but it's looking more likely than it has so far this season. The Magpies are 13th and 6 points clear of the bottom three. 3 wins in their last 4 league games have contributed towards that rise up the table.

The home side come into this game full of confidence that they can get a win. This is mainly due to them being placed 7th in the Premier League home form table. If you combine that with Newcastle having only won 2 of their 14 away league games this season and it make sense to back the Cherries.

These two clubs have only played each other 11 times in the past. It's been fairly even with Bournemouth winning 5, Newcastle winning 4, and 2 matches ending in a draw. Newcastle have only won 1 of the last 4 meetings but Bournemouth have failed to win the last 2.

I think this game will be a battle of Bournemouth's attack and Newcastle's patient counter attack. Benitez has struggled to get his team firing on the road and I can see that happening again here. Bournemouth have only lost 4 of their 15 home games and those defeats were against Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, and Manchester United. A home win for me here.

Fulham vs Liverpool

Two clubs that are experiencing two different extreme types of emotions within football right now meet each other this Sunday. Relegation battlers Fulham welcome title challengers Liverpool to Craven Cottage for this 2:15pm kick-off and it's almost too good to ignore in terms of the betting.

Fulham spent £100 million in the summer. I won't tire of saying that after they were lauded for spending big as Cardiff were criticised for sticking to a budget. All that money has done absolutely nothing for their survival hopes. The sacking of both Slavisa Jokanovic and Claudio Ranieri has shown what a mess their campaign has been. Scott Parker has been given the managerial job on an interim basis but the club is now in 19th place and 13 points adrift of safety with just 8 games left to play. Their season is all but over.

Liverpool continue to push themselves to the maximum in both the league and Champions League. A potentially tricky tie with Porto awaits on the European front whilst domestic obligations come thick and fast. The Reds are in 2nd place just 1 point behind league leaders Manchester City but have only lost one league game all season. Jurgen Klopp's side haven't tasted defeat in the league since the 2-1 loss to City on 3rd January. Unfortunately, just 3 wins in their last 7 league games has seen their lead at the summit eradicated by Pep Guardiola's side.

I'm not really sure much needs to be said about this game. Liverpool were fantastic against Bayern Munich in midweek. Parker has done his best to motivate the Fulham players but he's still effectively an inexperienced manager. It's a potential horror show waiting to happen. I think the home side will put up a battle but Liverpool should win this by a couple of goals at least.

Everton vs Chelsea

The Premier League action continues into Sunday with Everton versus Chelsea taking place at 4:30pm at Goodison Park. These two teams are on opposite ends of the form spectrum right now with the home side struggling and the away side getting back on track.

Everton are slowly dropping down the table with Marco Silva's side now in 12th place. Relegation isn't a real concern but their safety in the top flight isn't yet guaranteed and that's a huge disappointment for a team that was expecting to push the top six this season.

Chelsea appear to have navigated their way through the storm that engulfed the club at the start of the year. Maurizio Sarri has seen his team's results and performances pick up lately. The Blues are 6th but could potentially breach the top four once again with a win here.

Both teams are expecting a number of players to return to their first team line-up after missing their previous matches. The Toffees should welcome Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines back with Chelsea expecting a number of rested players from midweek to return including Eden Hazard, David Luiz, and Gonzalo Higuain. Kurt Zouma can't play against his parent club which is a blow for Everton.

The previous two league meetings between these sides have ended in a 0-0 draw. Everton haven't managed to even score against Chelsea in their last five meetings with the Blues. Furthermore, Everton have only won 1 of their last 10 league matches with Chelsea.

Form does not exactly favour Everton in this game. Silva's side have lost 4 of their last 6 league games. It is also now over two months since they experienced a win at home. It's also worth noting that Everton haven't beaten one of the established top six Premier League sides since January 2017.

I'm a bit torn about which way to go with this game. I think Everton are in trouble. Silva seems to be running out of time. Sarri has looked to have sorted out the issues his team were enduring but they're still poor on the road recently. I'm going to take a bit of a punt here and back the Blues to scrape a narrow win thanks to a Hazard-inspired performance.
