Premier League: Predictions for all five games on Saturday
- Back Tie or Luton Double Chance against Brentford
- Back both teams to score in Burnley vs Sheffield United
- Back over 2.5 goals between Nottingham Forest vs Everton
- Back Newcastle to win to zero against Manchester United
The festive season is almost upon us and there are five Premier League matches to take in on Saturday, with the highlight coming from St James' Park at 8pm when Newcastle host Manchester United.
Here are our expert writers' top selections for all of Saturday's matches from the top flight.
Arsenal vs Wolves (Saturday, 3pm)
Wolves have looked lively in attacking areas under Gary O'Neil, but they will have to throw caution to the wind away at Arsenal, who have the attacking stars to pick the visitors off.
The visitors have shipped three on trips to Crystal Palace and Fulham, while also conceding four at home to Brighton and three when entertaining Liverpool.
So Gunners, fresh from their 6-0 rout of Lens in midweek, should be confident they can get amongst the goals again.
Brentford vs Luton (Saturday, 3pm)
Luton's confidence has been boosted by last weekend's win over Crystal Palace, as well as creditable draws with Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, while Brentford have won only four of their 13 league games this term.
The Bees, missing suspended striker Ivan Toney, have struggled to put teams away at times this season, drawing at home with Palace and Bournemouth and losing 3-1 to Everton.
They have had only six shots on target in their last two league matches, admittedly against Liverpool and Arsenal, and could find it difficult to break down Luton.
Burnley vs Sheffield United (Saturday, 3pm)
This is a relegation six-pointer and, while there is a belief that they tend to be cagey affairs, the goals could flow in this basement battle at Turf Moor.
Neither of these defences have been able to keep a clean sheet from their 13 games this season, with Burnley conceding 32 goals and Sheffield United shipping 34.
So the attacking players on the pitch should have plenty of confidence that they can make their presence felt and both teams to score may be the way to go.
Nottingham Forest vs Everton (Saturday, 5.30pm)
Forest will desperately miss Taiwo Awoniyi's presence in the final third, but they proved they can still score without him last week against Brighton.
Steve Cooper's team have been involved in some entertaining battles of late, but they are struggling to keep clean sheets.
Everton's recent away form has been impressive and, after winning four of their last five on their travels, they will feel they can find the back of the net on Saturday.
Picking a winner between these two looks difficult, but goals should be expected as both teams look to move on from a tough few weeks.
Newcastle vs Manchester United (Saturday, 8pm)
Home advantage could be key for Newcastle, who beat in-form Chelsea 4-1 at St James' Park last weekend and stood firm until the 98th minute against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
Newcastle won 3-0 at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup earlier this season, having defeated Manchester United 2-0 in last season's league meeting at St James' Park.
And the Magpies, who kept clean sheets in recent home wins over Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Brentford, are worth backing to win to zero on Saturday.
