The Premier League has a very familiar look to it after 4 games played, with big hitters Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham, and Chelsea all winning last time out. Manchester United and Liverpool also recorded wins too and the midweek programme promises to provide more drama. At the bottom of the pile, Leicester City, Everton, and Wolves are all awaiting their first wins of the season and they will be eager to rectify that this week.
Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the Premier League 2022/23 season:
Premier League Week 5 Predictions
Crystal Palace vs Brentford – Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace ($2.17)
Fresh from giving Manchester City a scare, Crystal Palace host Brentford. The Eagles have been in good form so far this season but have had some tricky fixtures, with Liverpool, Arsenal and City all ticked off. They welcome a Brentford side that have also enjoyed a strong start to the season thus far and that look equipped to deal with the Premier League again this term. This should be a very good game, with Crystal Palace most likely to come out on top.
Betting tip: Crystal Palace to win the match ($2.17)
Crystal Palace to win 2-1
Fulham vs Brighton – Craven Cottage
Two sides flying high so far this season face off as Fulham take on Brighton. The Cottagers were undone late on by Arsenal last weekend but play some excellent football and they are rising to the challenge of Premier League football. Brighton meanwhile are looking like a side that could compete in the upper echelons of the table this season and they are full of confidence currently. Brighton are a side in good nick, and they could well pinch this.
Betting tip: Brighton to win the match ($3.4)
Brighton to win 2-1
Southampton vs Chelsea – St Mary’s Stadium
Manchester United ($1.62)
Southampton will be looking to bounce back from defeat to Manchester United as they take on Chelsea. The Saints have won one, drawn one and lost two of their opening four games this season but they look well equipped to deal with the battle ahead of them in the Premier League this season. Chelsea meanwhile got back to winning ways at the weekend, edging past Leicester City and they will want to back that result up here. This should be a decent game, which Chelsea should just edge.
Betting tip: Chelsea to win the match ($1.62)
Manchester United to win 2-1
Leeds United vs Everton – Elland Road
Leeds United ($2.2)
Leeds United will be hoping to ramp the pressure up on Everton, when the two clash in Yorkshire. Leeds have been in excellent nick so far this season, particularly at home, where they have won both of their games played this term. Everton meanwhile are still winless this term under Frank Lampard, but they put up a good showing at Brentford last week and will want to build on that here, There is very little to split these sides and a draw looks likely.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.65)
Arsenal vs Aston Villa – Emirates Stadium
Aston Villa ($7.6)
Arsenal will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the season, as they take on lowly Aston Villa. The Gunners have been in superb nick so far this term and Mikel Arteta has fans dreaming of just how far they may be able to go this year, Aston Villa meanwhile are struggling for form under Steven Gerrard, who looks to be a man under pressure. This should be comfortable home win for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.
Betting tip: Arsenal to win the match ($1.5)
Arsenal to win 3-1
Liverpool vs Newcastle United – Anfield
Newcastle United ($10.5)
Liverpool will be hoping to build on their incredible 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth, as they take on Newcastle United. The reds were purring against the Cherries, and they will be desperate to put in a repeat showing here. Newcastle meanwhile are unbeaten this term and they too will be out to put points on the board and show they can trouble the reds. This will be tighter than the odds suggest but Liverpool should pick up three more points here.
Betting tip: Liverpool to win the match ($1.33)
Liverpool to win 3-1
Manchester City vs Nottingham Forest – Etihad Stadium
Manchester City ($1.1)
Nottingham Forest ($34)
Manchester City have survived a couple of scares in their last two games, and they will be looking for a routine win over Nottingham Forest here. City remain unbeaten in the Premier League this term and they are showed real resilience to come back and beat Crystal Palace last weekend. Nottingham Forest meanwhile are a plucky outfit who are always tough to beat, and they will be out to make this as tricky as possible for the blues. City should have enough to prevail here though.
Betting tip: Manchester City to win the match ($1.1)
Manchester City to win 3-0
West Ham United vs Tottenham – London Olympic Stadium
West Ham United ($3.8)
A London Derby is on the cards as West Ham take on Tottenham at the Olympic Stadium. West Ham have endured a tough start to the season, but they managed to pick up their first win of the season over Aston Villa last time out. Tottenham meanwhile haven’t lost this season and look to have a new found resilience in recent weeks, displayed by their gritty win over Nottingham Forest last weekend. This should be a very good game, with the atmosphere sure to be red hot and Spurs could pick up an important win.
Betting tip: Tottenham to win the match ($2.04)
Tottenham to win 2-1
Bournemouth vs Wolves – Vitality Stadium
Bournemouth will be looking to bounce back from their 9-0 pasting to Liverpool, as they take on Wolves. It has been a tough start to the season for the Cherries, but they do have a win on the board and their home form will be key to their survival. Wolves meanwhile are an improving side under Bruno Lage, but results have been hard to come by this season so far. This should be a very good game, with Wolves most likely to pinch the points.
Betting tip: Wolves to win the match ($2.25)
Wolves to win 2-1
Leicester City vs Manchester United – King Power Stadium
Leicester City ($3.5)
Manchester United ($2.1)
Winless Leicester City take on Manchester United, with the pressure mounting on Brendan Rodgers. The Foxes haven’t invested in their squad this summer and they could struggle for points this season. Manchester United meanwhile have won back to back matches in the last couple of weeks and they will be hoping to make it 3 from 3 here. This should be a really good game and a draw could well be on the cards.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.9)
