predictions, including Man Utd v Arsenal Michael OwenThursday 26 Apr 2018 3:51 pm Share this article with Facebook Share this
article with Twitter Share this article with Google Plus Share this article through email 676 After a huge week of European football, the
Premier League resumes and ahead of the latest round of fixtures, BetVictor brand ambassador Michael Owen has made his
predictions. Liverpool v Stoke City Stoke need to take maximum points this weekend to have any realistic chance of maintaining their
Premier League status. With that in mind, it is unlikely they would have handpicked Liverpool for this must-win game given they have
not won at Anfield in their 54 previous top-flight visits! Mo Salah can set a Premier League record this weekend (Getty) I am beginning
to run out of superlatives for Mo Salah – all I will say is that the new King of the Kop needs just one more Premier League goal to
become the outright top scorer in the history of the competition since it became a 38-game season – in his first season! Prediction:
Liverpool 3-0 Stoke City MORE: FOOTBALL Diego Simeone's superb reaction to Antoine Griezmann's goal against Arsenal Furious

DISADVANTAGE for Arsenal Burnley v Brighton Brighton have only scored nine times away from home this season and it would be fair
to say they don’t score many goals north of Watford given five of those nine away goals have been scored in London with two more on
the south coast! The Clarets have conceded in their last eight games at Turf Moor, but they will more or less clinch seventh place in the
table if they keep the points against the Seagulls. The Clarets were a short price to be relegated at the start of the season – to be on the
verge of Europa League qualification is a magnificent achievement. Prediction: Burnley 1-0 Brighton Crystal Palace v Leicester City
Jamie Vardy has a chance to boost his England credentials this weekend (Getty) I will be surprised if we do not see a number of goals
at Selhurst Park where the hosts are looking to win home back-to-back league games for the first time since last April. The Foxes have
scored and conceded in 22 different league games this season – more than any other side – and have a decent recent record at Palace
losing just one of their last five. Only Harry Kane (15) and Mo Salah (13) have scored more away league goals than Jamie Vardy (9) so
far this term and Gareth Southgate needs all his strikers in top form ahead of the World Cup in Russia. Prediction: Crystal Palace 2-2
Leicester City Huddersfield v Everton There are unlikely to be too many goals at the John Smith’s Stadium despite the fact that Everton
have only kept two clean sheets on the road so far this campaign. The Blues have drawn six of their last eight away games against
newly promoted clubs and I think they will have to settle for a hard-earned point against the Terriers who are not yet guaranteed their
place in the Premier League next term. Prediction: Huddersfield 1-1 Everton Newcastle v West Brom Rafa Benitez has done a great job
with Newcastle this season (Getty) Newcastle were not at their best at Goodison earlier in the week, but get a confident vote to bounce
back despite the fact that Darren Moore’s Albion have picked up four points from their last two games against Manchester United and
Liverpool. It is likely to be a case of too little too late, however, and West Brom need to pick up maximum points at St James’s Park to
have any chance of an unlikely Great Escape. The Baggies have only kept one clean sheet in their last 24 visits to St James’s Park,
however, and I think this will be the game that confirms the Baggies will be playing Championship football next term. Prediction:
Newcastle 2-0 West Brom Southampton v Bournemouth Southampton have never lost a home match against Bournemouth in thirteen
previous games in all competitions and desperately need to keep the points in their bid to avoid the drop. The Saints have not won any
of their last nine Premier League home games and it promises to be a tight, tense affair on the south coast, but one from which I feel the
hosts will take all three points. Prediction: Southampton 1-0 Bournemouth Swansea v Chelsea Chelsea may have one eye on the FA
Cup final (Getty) Chelsea were much too good for Southampton at Wembley on Sunday and Antonio Conte will be delighted that both
his central strikers were among the goals in the FA Cup semi-final. The Blues have won their last couple of away league games and the
Swans might only be a point above the relegation places if the Saints have beaten the Cherries earlier in the day. Whatever the result at
St Mary’s I think the Swans can take a point. Prediction: Swansea 1-1 Chelsea West Ham v Manchester City City have won their last
two games at the London Stadium by a combined score of 9-0 and I expect the champions to have too much pace and quality for the
Hammers. City have scored 98 league goals so far this season and I expect Pep Guardiola’s side to have at least 100 on the board by
the end of the game. Prediction: West Ham 1-3 Manchester City Manchester United v Arsenal Arsene Wenger visits Old Trafford for the
last time as Arsenal boss (Getty) Jose Mourinho has largely held the upper hand in his meetings with Arsene Wenger down the years
losing just two of their 18 previous clashes (W8 D8) and he has never lost to the Gunners boss in seven previous home games. United
will be buoyed by their semi-final win over Spurs last weekend and I expect them to gain a quick double over the North London clubs.
Arsenal are in Europa League action on Thursday and are likely to have one eye on the return leg in Madrid next week. The Gunners
are yet to pick up an away point in 2018 and I expect United to edge what promises to be an open, entertaining game. Prediction:
Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal Tottenham v Watford Spurs have to put behind their FA Cup semi-final loss when they entertain a
Watford side who have failed to score in four of their last six Premier League games and have lost their last seven matches in London.
Spurs seemed to run out of ideas and legs against United – despite taking a goal lead in last weekend’s semi-final – and there is a
worrying trend emerging at the club. Spurs thoroughly deserve their place in the Champions League next term, but Mauricio Pochettino
will be well aware his side need to find a way to take the next step and bring some silverware to the new-look White Hart Lane next
term. Prediction: Tottenham 4-1 Watford MORE: FOOTBALL Diego Simeone & Vrsaljko sent off in crazy 12 minutes but Griezmann
