Saturday’s Premier League Predictions: Kane can net for Spurs against Brentford

Just over a week remains of the Premier League season and Saturday brings some important matches at both ends of the table. Football expert Greg Lea previews the action. 

Tottenham Hotspur v Brentford

Kick-off: 12.30pm Saturday 

Tottenham will qualify for the Europa Conference League if they finish in their current position (seventh). Their supporters are divided over whether or not that would be a good thing, but they could yet drop down a couple of places before the end of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Brentford would move within a point of their London rivals with a victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend.

An away win cannot be ruled out given Spurs’ patchy form of late, but Brentford will struggle to keep star striker Harry Kane under wraps. The England captain has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances and I fancy him to make that four. 

Prediction: Harry Kane anytime goalscorer @ 1.99 

Bournemouth v Manchester United 

Kick-off: 3pm Saturday

With Liverpool continuing to apply pressure, Manchester United still have work to do in the race for the top four. Two wins from their remaining three games would get Erik ten Hag’s team over the line, and they will fancy their chances of triumphing at the Vitality Stadium.

Erik ten Hag: will hope his side secure their Champions League place

Bournemouth looked like they were mentally on the beach in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat by Crystal Palace, a game in which they were comprehensively outplayed by Roy Hodgson’s men.

The Cherries do know where the goal is, though, so this could be an entertaining contest. Perhaps Bournemouth grab a consolation at some point. 

Prediction: Manchester United to win and Over 2.5 goals @ 2.1

Fulham v Crystal Palace

Kick-off: 3pm Saturday

Since Hodgson returned to Selhurst Park in March, Crystal Palace have the fifth-best record in the Premier League. Only Manchester City, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Aston Villa have collected more points in that time. 

Palace could still finish above Chelsea in 11th, although they will probably need to beat their west London rivals on Saturday to stand a chance of doing so. Ebere Eze has been revitalised under Hodgson, scoring six goals in his last seven games. Back him to increase his tally against Fulham. 

Prediction: Ebere Eze anytime goalscorer @ 4.5

Liverpool v Aston Villa

Kick-off: 3pm Saturday

Liverpool are making a late march for Champions League qualification. A 3-0 victory over Leicester City on Monday night was their seventh win on the bounce and moved them to within touching distance of the top four.

Mo Salah: has had another fine goalscoring campaign

The Reds will probably need to win both of their remaining matches to have a chance of overtaking either Newcastle or Manchester United.

Aston Villa are tricky opponents and this could be a tight game, but Jurgen Klopp’s team should get over the line in front of their own fans. 

Prediction: Liverpool to win and Both teams to score @ 3.05 

Wolves v Everton 

Kick-off: 3pm Saturday

Of the four teams battling for Premier League survival, Everton have the easiest run-in. Sean Dyche’s side will conclude the campaign at home to Bournemouth, but before that they will travel to Molineux this weekend.

Wolves possess a strong home record in recent weeks with four wins on the spin on familiar territory. But Julen Lopetegui’s side are already safe from the drop and they may struggle to match their opponents’ intensity.

Everton thumped Brighton & Hove Albion 5-1 in their last away outing. Another thrashing is unlikely, but the Toffees can strengthen their position on Saturday.

Prediction: Everton to win @ 2.76

Nottingham Forest v Arsenal 

Kick-off: 5.30pm Saturday 

If Arsenal lose this weekend, the Premier League title will belong to Manchester City. The Gunners looked physically and mentally shattered against Brighton when last seen and they may struggle to rally themselves once again. 

A win for Nottingham Forest would perhaps preserve their top-flight status, so the stakes could hardly be higher for the hosts. They will prioritise keeping things tight at the back against an Arsenal attack that struggled to get going in the loss to Brighton.

Prediction: Under 2.5 goals @ 2.46
