Tottenham vs Arsenal
Tottenham to win +105
Arsenal have had a strong season overall, and they currently sit in fourth place in the table. But they have not fared well against other top-six sides this season. The Gunners are 2W-2D-4L against the top 6, with a 0-1-3 record and a -7 goal difference away from home. In fact, Unai Emery’s side have struggled on the road against everyone, with just a 5-3-5 record in their 13 away league games.
Tottenham have lost two consecutive matches to effectively ruin their title chances, but overall, they still remain four points ahead of Arsenal in the table while also sitting ahead of them in the WhoScored.com team rankings. Spurs are the better side and should win this game at home.
Manchester United vs Southampton
United +1 (no push) +145
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjær took over for Jose Mourinho in December, Manchester United are 9-2-0 in league games. They have been particularly dominant against the bottom half of the table, having won by more than one goal in six of their nine matches against bottom-half teams during that timespan.
Southampton are fighting for their lives in the relegation battle as their 6-9-13 record is good enough for 17th place. In their nine games against the top six this season, the Saints have lost by more than one goal on sit occasions, and United should have a very good chance to win by more than a goal at home on Saturday.
Everton vs Liverpool
Liverpool to win -165
Manchester City are hot on Liverpool’s tail, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are still hanging on to first place by a single point. Liverpool have been dominant this year, carrying a 21-6-1 overall EPL mark, and they boast a very stout 9-4-1 away record, good enough for a 60% winning percentage away from home.
On the other side, Everton are ninth in the table, but they have been trending downward. The Toffees are 4-2-9 in their last 15 league games dating back to their heartbreaking last-second loss to Liverpool in early December.
It won't be easy -- it never is away from home in a derby -- but the Reds are the much better side and should come away with all three points.
