Predictions For This Weekend's Premier League Games

Premier League Match Predictions For This Weekend

The matchup between Leicester and Chelsea pits two of the top teams in the world against one another.


Leicester has lost two of its last three games and is now seven points behind fourth place in the Premier League table.


Chelsea currently leads the Premier League by three points, however their most recent match was lost to Burnley.


Even though Chelsea has only won one of their last four road games against Leicester, they will be favorites in this one.

Leeds United versus Tottenham Hotspur


Tottenham went without a shot on target in the Premier League for the second game in a row after a 0-0 stalemate with Everton before the international break, but they'll be confident of scoring when they travel to Leeds, who have conceded 18 goals to Tottenham in the last two seasons.


Last time out, the Whites came home with all three points from their trip to Norwich, which was a significant triumph. They have gone without a win in their last five encounters with Spurs, including a 3-0 loss here at the start of the season.


Spurs will have put in a lot of work at Hotspur Way with those who aren't on international duty, and they will be hoping to make it two wins in a row under their new manager in Sunday's afternoon match.


Crystal Palace vs Burnley (Premier League)

Burnley has only lost one of their last six Premier League games, drawing 1-1 with Chelsea before the international break.


Crystal Palace has now gone six games without losing after winning back-to-back games. They won 2-0 against Wolves on Saturday to follow up a fantastic 2-0 victory over Manchester City.


At the moment, both teams are proving to be difficult to beat, and this could be the case here as well. Palace has lost the last three encounters between the two teams, but a draw on Saturday seems likely.


Brentford against Newcastle (Premier League)

Newcastle United is in second place and five points from relegation when Eddie Howe takes over as manager. Howe will be compelled to make the most of what he has available because the January transfer window is still open for a few more games.


Despite having some weak areas in their roster, they have some really interesting players. Bournemouth was 17 points away from relegation in League Two when he took over on New Year's Eve in 2008. He was able to keep the club running well.


Brentford bolstered their roster over the international break. The goal isn't to bring back injured players, because they won't be there, but to re-establish a winning streak after a bad stretch. Brentford has had a bad run of form recently. Brentford have now lost four consecutive Premier League games after going undefeated in their first seven.


Give Howe some leeway if you've been jobless for 15 months. Newcastle, on the other hand, has a solid home record against Brentford, and Howe will be hoping to avoid defeat in his first game in charge.
