English Premier League predictions MW30: Expected vs usual results

The Special One is the centre of attention in the Premier League once again this weekend, as Jose Mourinho puts his Tottenham side up against former club Manchester United.

While Spurs are wheezing their way towards the end of the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have perked up markedly ahead of their trip to north London.

Tottenham have dropped to eighth in the EPL table having gone three without a win, while also being booted out of the Uefa Champions League by RB Leipzig during the week.

United have started to hit their straps for the first time in an age during that spell, not least with their 2-0 Old Trafford success over neighbours Manchester City securing a rare derby double last weekend.

Another rivalry plays out in the north west this weekend, as Liverpool and Everton contest the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park on Monday night.

The Reds go into the weekend a mammoth 25 points clear of the rest, with their first loss of the campaign at Watford followed by a narrow victory over Bournemouth last Saturday.

Everton are without success in three attempts despite the green shoots of recovery under new boss Carlo Ancelotti.

In-form Wolves must also wait until Sunday to continue their push for the Champions League places, with a visit to the London Stadium to play relegation-haunted West Ham.

The Hammers start the weekend above the drop zone on goal difference, while Wolves’ unbeaten run has taken them to sixth in the EPL table.

Manchester City feature in one of seven Saturday Premier League fixtures when they host Burnley at the City of Manchester Stadium.

City’s seventh league defeat of an awkward campaign has left them in a battle for second with Leicester, who kick off the weekend’s action on Saturday lunchtime at Watford.

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes sit third, four points behind City after ending their winless sequence with a 4-0 battering of Aston Villa on Monday night.

Chelsea also remain in the top four mix thanks to their improving fortunes, with a trip to Villa Park their next assignment for the late Saturday kick off.

The Blues have secured seven points from their last possible nine, with a 4-0 hammering of Everton their latest success under boss Frank Lampard.

Mikel Arteta is another rookie boss improving a London club, with his Arsenal side having won three on the bounce ahead of their trip south to struggling Brighton.

Three points and two places above the Gunners are seventh-placed Sheffield United, who are up in the north east on Saturday to tackle Newcastle.

The Toon Army are eight points clear of the relegation zone in 13th, with Southampton a point behind ahead of their date with bottom side Norwich at Carrow Road.

Bournemouth are below the dotted relegation line going into their home clash with midtable Crystal Palace, who have won their last three under re-contracted veteran chief Roy Hodgson.
