My 11/1 weekend BTTS accy - https://www.punterslounge.com/football-news/btts-tips-15-04-23/

2.5pts Newcastle to beat Villa 23/20
Villa in good form but the teams they've beat are all bottom half of the Prem table teams. Newcastle flying. I've also gone with BTTS and Newcastle to win.

2.5pts Everton to beat Fulham 11/10
Everton very solid at home since Dyche has entered the building. Fulham still without Mitrovic looked clueless in-front of goal against West Ham

2pts Brighton to beat Chelsea 7/4
Brighton are flying at the moment and create so many chances. I can't see how Chelsea start scoring goals and so if they're providing anything to Brighton then I can see them losing this one, too. Could potentially be a Champs League hangover, too.

Chelsea vs Brighton

Chelsea will want a better result here after the 2-0 Champions League defeat last time out to Real Madrid. It was their fifth straight game without tasting a win, and the Blues will unlikely get a continental ticket through the Premier League. It's been a rare occasion in recent games that Chelsea has shown defensive steel. The reality is that Chelsea has failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous six clashes, shipping eight goals along the way. That trend might not be sustained into this next game, though. Thiago Silva (Ligament Injury), Raheem Sterling (Hamstring Injury), Mason Mount (bruised pelvis), and Armando Broja (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won't be playing for Chelsea coach Frank Lampard.

After being beaten in their last game against Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League action, Brighton and their traveling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one. The visitors are still in the Europa League spot race, sitting in 7th place with one point less than Aston Villa. Illustrating their appetite for eventful matches, we've seen goals 21 times in the prior six games in which Brighton & Hove Albion has taken to the field, giving an average of 3.5 goals each fixture. Opposing teams have got 7 of these goals. Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has to contend with reduced team options currently. Jakub Moder (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jeremy Sarmiento (Metatarsal Fracture) are not ready for selection.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be a tight clash, and Chelsea failed to beat their rivals five times on the previous six occasions. Considering their current form, we believe that tradition can continue on Saturday afternoon.

Goals Market Prediction

Both teams managed to score in five of their previous six h2h clashes. Although Chelsea struggles in front of the opponent's net, we think neither side will keep a clean sheet in this encounter. 

Brighton AH +0.5 @ 1.55

BTTS Yes @ 1.78

Correct score 1:1 @ 6.60

Manchester City vs Leicester City

Manchester City is hoping to win again following a 3-0 Champions League triumph vs Bayern Munich. The Citizens are full of confidence, and they enjoy an excellent streak. Their most recent results highlight the fact that much respect should be given to the Manchester City defense. Manchester City has kept it tight, seeing the tally of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their previous six clashes standing at two. On the other hand, the defending Premier League champions have been lethal for the opponents' defenses. They need to pick up where they left off to stay in the title race.

Since tasting defeat last time out to Bournemouth in Premier League competition, Leicester City will be aiming to make amends here. However, it will be quite tough for the relegation-strapped Foxes. After three straight defeats, Leicester is now two points behind the nearest safe spot. The attacking players from Leicester City have had real problems scoring goals in their past six games, contributing to the poor return of only four. In those fixtures, The Foxes have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal to 10. That trend won't necessarily be sustained into this match, however. Leicester City boss Dean Smith has not got a full squad to pick from. Ryan Bertrand (Knee Surgery), Jonny Evans (Calf Injury), Youri Tielemans (Torn Ankle Ligament), and James Justin (Achilles tendon rupture) are those who can't be considered.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Manchester City has much better momentum, and anything besides the home win would be a huge surprise. We think the hosts will meet the expectations and celebrate a comfortable victory at Etihad Stadium.

Goals Market Prediction

The Citizens have been pretty productive lately, while Leicester has been involved in many high-scoring games this season. Therefore, we believe the crowd will enjoy at least four goals on Saturday evening.

Manchester City AH -1.5 @ 1.50

Over 3.5 FT @ 1.95

Correct score 4:1 @ 14.00

West Ham vs Arsenal

West Ham United, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 1-0 Premier League success versus Fulham. The Hammers sit in 14th place, but they are only three points ahead of the relegation zone. West Ham United has been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, hitting the target in every one of their last six matches. They've managed to rack up ten during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 6. The West Ham United manager David Moyes has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash with a fully healthy group available to select from.

Last time out, Arsenal drew 2-2 in the Premier League match with Liverpool. Although they had a 2-0 lead, the Gunners didn't manage to keep their advantage for the whole 90 minutes. In a total of 5 of the previous six games involving Arsenal, at least three goals have gone in. The overall average number of goals per match during that spell is 3.83, with the number of goals averaged by Arsenal working out to 2.67. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend can be continued here. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has a number of players out of action. Eddie Nketiah (Ankle Injury), Mohamed Elneny (Knee Injury), and Takehiro Tomiyasu (Knee Surgery) will not be playing here.  

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Derbies are never easy to predict, and this match can go either way. However, the visitors have been much more convincing recently, and we think Arsenal will pick up all three points from this encounter.

Goals Market Prediction

Only three of their previous ten h2h encounters stayed under a 2.5 margin. Despite the importance of this match for both teams, we think they will produce at least three goals again. 

Arsenal to Win @ 1.60

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.85

Correct score 1:3 @ 13.00

Nottingham Forest vs Manchester United

Nottingham Forest will want a better result here following a 2-0 Premier League losing effort in their last game against Aston Villa. The hosts are in terrible form after failing to win in the previous nine Premier League rounds. Nottingham Forest has been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, although they've also managed to score goals themselves. Looking at their last six games, Nottingham Forest has been punished defensively in 6 of them while also managing to get on the scoresheet in 5 of those matches. Cheikhou Kouyaté (Hamstring Injury), Willy Boly (Hamstring Injury), Chris Wood (Hamstring Injury), and Giulian Biancone (Knee Injury) are unavailable for Nottingham Forest coach Steve Cooper.

Manchester United will come into the encounter following on from a 2-0 Premier League win with the eclipse of Everton in their last match. It was the Red Devils' second straight win that kept them in 3rd place. A succession of hard-working showings by the Manchester United defensive unit has resulted in their' goals against' tally amounting to 3 from their last six outings overall. In that period, their forwards managed to score 7. Despite that, we'll just have to find out whether such a trend might be maintained in this next game or not. Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has multiple availability issues to deal with. Alejandro Garnacho (Ankle Injury), Marcus Rashford (Unknown Injury), and Donny van de Beek (Knee Injury) won't be making appearances.  

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

The visitors are in much better form, and they should exploit Nottingham's poor performances. That's why we believe Manchester United will return home with all three points in their pockets.

Goals Market Prediction

The home side failed to score in its last three h2h encounters against Man Utd this season. We believe that trend will continue, and the Red Devils should keep a clean sheet.

Manchester United to Win @ 1.65

BTTS No @ 2.00

Correct score 0:2 @ 7.80
