WhoScored vs oddschecker Premier League Score Predictions Gameweek 5

Our football expert Ryan Elliott takes on WhoScored in a head-to-head to predict the correct scores of every Premier League game this weekend.

Each week oddschecker football expert Ryan Elliott will be taking on WhoScored in a head-to-head to try and predict every correct score in the Premier League.

Gameweek 4 in the Premier League ended up being one of the most unpredictable in recent memory. Sadly, neither of our experts managed to predict Tottenham's 6-1 drubbing of Man Utd or Liverpool's jaw-dropping 7-2 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

A reminder that we're awarding three points for a correct score, and one point for a correct result.

WhoScored have taken a narrow lead after that round of fixtures. While both sides picked a correct score each, WhoScored edge ahead with three correct results to Ryan's two.

Hoping to brush themselves off from that tough last round, our experts have picked out their predictions for every clash in gameweek 5.

Everton vs Liverpool

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

This is generally a fixture that fails to ignite, but this year could be a little different. Liverpool will have to dust themselves down after being humiliated by Villa, while Everton simply have to continue what they've been doing. All three results firmly on the table.

WhoScored: 1-1

While meetings at Anfield usually produce entertaining games, the same cannot be said for matches at Goodison Park. Seven of the last eight at Goodison Park have been draws and each of the last three have ended 0-0. Even if another draw looks likely on Saturday, it should at least prove more entertaining with Everton's new signings.

Chelsea vs Southampton

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-2

Saints come into this in good form, while Chelsea, despite their hammering of Crystal Palace, continually flatter to deceive. Southampton unbeaten in their last couple at Stamford Bridge, and they'll fancy another positive result this time around.

WhoScored: 2-1

Chelsea are favourites heading into Saturday's meeting but it wouldn't be at all surprising to see them slip up here given what we have seen so far this season. Christian Pulisic's return, however, should prove a huge boost for Frank Lampard's side heading into an important run of games.

Man City vs Arsenal

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-2

While Arsenal's record against City is appalling in the league, the Gunners have thus far looked the stronger outfit, and look good value to snatch their first league points at The Etihad since May 2016.

WhoScored: 1-2

Arsenal have lost their last six league meetings with City and haven't triumphed since 2015 but Arteta did lead the Gunners to victory over Pep Guardiola's side in last season's FA Cup final. With City dwindling, Arsenal have a great chance to end their rotten league run in this fixture with a massive victory on Saturday.

Newcastle Utd vs Manchester Utd

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-1

Manchester United are lucky to have any points this season, and with just one win from their last four visits to St. James', I'm struggling to make a significant case for them. Solskjaer to find himself in more hot water come Saturday evening.

WhoScored: 2-1

Manchester United are in disarray on and off the pitch at the moment and are really there for the taking if Newcastle fancy it. The hosts would be disappointed if they didn't get at least a point on Saturday.

Sheffield Utd vs Fulham

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-0

Tough one to call. Both sides short of goals, although the arrival of Rhian Brewster a much-needed boost for United. I'm backing the hosts to edge it.

WhoScored: 2-1

Both sides will likely have new signings on display this weekend with Sheffield United relying on Rhian Brewster to score them the goals to beat the drop and Fulham hoping Lyon centre-back Joachim Andersen can improve them at the back. Unfortunately for the visitors, they are generally quite poor away from home in the Premier League. In fact, Fulham have won just three of their last 33 top-flight away games.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

Spoils have generally been shared between these two rivals over the last few years. Brighton have performed well at Selhurst Park for the last two seasons, but Palace's traditionally solid defence, coupled with Albion's sketchy finishing, could see this one end all-square.

WhoScored: 2-2

Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between these two fierce rivals, pointing towards an entertaining affair at Selhurst Park.

Tottenham vs West Ham

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 3-1

The Hammers have been totally unpredictable this season, but regardless, Spurs' quality will shine through on Sunday. Things look to be clicking for Jose Mourinho's men, and the result at Old Trafford will see them head into the West Ham game on Cloud Nine.

WhoScored: 2-0

Moyes is looking to score his first ever win over Jose Mourinho having failed to do so in the last 14 meetings between the two - his worst record against a single manager. However, with Gareth Bale now available for Tottenham, that lousy record looks set to continue for the West Ham boss.

 

Leicester City vs Aston Villa

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-2

Another really tough one to call. Both sides (barring Leicester's bizarre defeat to West Ham) have been exceptional, and you'd be brave to assertively back either side. Villa's incredible win over Liverpool will give them huge confidence, but a trip to the King Power is a tough follow-up.

WhoScored: 2-2

The Foxes' injury problems at the back could level the playing field somewhat here, and should at least guarantee goals at both ends.

West Brom vs Burnley

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

Two sides who have been fairly dire thus far, despite relatively tricky starts. Neither defence has looked at all inspiring, although both outfits also seem short of goals, which leads me to believe they'll cancel each other out.

WhoScored: 0-1

Potentially with no striker Slaven Bilic fancies to call upon here, West Brom could find it tough against Burnley on Monday. It presents an ideal opportunity for the away side to get their campaign up and running but will no doubt be a cagey match at the Hawthorns.

Leeds Utd vs Wolves

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-1

Leeds' respective results over Liverpool and Man City shows they're able to mix it with the very best in the country, and I fancy them to edge past Wolves. Nuno's men responded to three straight defeats in all competitions with a laborious win over Fulham last time out, but that won't be enough to stop Marcelo Bielsa's improving side.

WhoScored: 1-1

This meeting should prove thoroughly entertaining, with high class football on display. Based on the form shown already this season Leeds would be disappointed if they got nothing from this match.
