Wolves 0-2 Liverpool

Wolves have lost just one of their last nine league games following a second successive goalless draw in midweek, with their attacking process their biggest issue.

After a steady start to the campaign in that regard, the Old Gold have struggled in their last six matches, breaching 1.3 expected goals for (xGF) only once in that time.

Liverpool head to Molineux with no such issues, the Reds boasting the best attacking process in the league, and it was on full display in midweek as they dismantled Merseyside rivals Everton 4-1.

The Reds have now scored two or more goals in 20 of their 21 games in all competitions this season, averaging a whopping 2.76 xGF per game in the Premier League.

Even a decent Wolves defence (fourth best based on xGA per game with 1.16) will struggle to contain Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Southampton 1-1 Brighton

Against a defensively poor Leicester side, Southampton created an abundance of chances in a 2-2 draw (xG: SOU 2.16 – 1.76 LEI), but they may find things a lot tougher against Brighton.

The Seagulls got what they deserved at West Ham in midweek, again putting on a strong defensive display in limiting one of the best attacking teams in the league to very little.

Graham Potter’s side have allowed an average of just 1.08 non-penalty expected goals against (non-pen xGA) per game, the fourth best record in the league, but their lack of creativity in attacking areas is costing them wins.

Saints’ defence at home this term has been incredibly solid, allowing just 1.09 non-pen xGA per game, so expect defences to be on top in this Saturday’s clash.

Newcastle 1-1 Burnley

Newcastle earned a valiant point against Norwich, playing for over 80 minutes with 10-men, but they remain winless through 14 league games, and now sit bottom of both the actual and expected tables (based on xPoints).

The Magpies haven’t got going under Eddie Howe, continuing to show the same defensive frailties as witnessed under Steve Bruce, while their attacking play hasn’t yet clicked.

Their best attacking displays this season have come at St. James’ Park though, averaging 1.36 xGF per game, but in front of their own fans they have allowed a league high 2.14 xGA per game.

A Burnley team unbeaten in four will fancy their chances of getting a result on the Tyne, especially as they have shown they are a capable attacking unit, averaging 1.32 xGF per game. They can cause issues for Newcastle’s backline.


Cardiff City 1-1 Sheffield United

It’s sure to be an intriguing affair in the Welsh capital with Cardiff City, looking for a fourth win in five matches, hosting Sheffield United - hoping for a third victory on the bounce.

Interim Cardiff boss Steve Morison has rejuvenated the Bluebirds, with the team collecting 10 points from his first six games in charge.

They currently sit 20th in the Championship, five points ahead of the drop zone and five points behind Sheffield United in 13th.

The Blades are getting used to life under Paul Heckingbottom, who returned to the helm at Bramall Lane with a winning start in a 2-0 win over Bristol City.

Despite being seven places apart, both these sides seem evenly matched. Both have won the xG battle in each of their last three fixtures.

A draw should be favoured with no obvious favourite.

Blackburn Rovers 3-0 Preston

High-flying Blackburn take on Lancashire rivals Preston, with the home side strong favourites to take all three points.

Tony Mowbray’s side sit fifth in the Championship table having collected 10 points from a possible 12 in their past four games.

Preston on the other hand are struggling for form, winning one of their past four and losing the xG battle in three of their last four matches.

Given the gap between these two teams in both the table and the form book, Blackburn should be backed with confidence as the home team against the Lilywhites.


Barnsley 0-2 Huddersfield

Barnsley are a club struggling on and off the pitch. Poya Asbaghi's side are 23rd in the division and would be rooted to the bottom if it weren’t for Derby County’s point deductions.

In their last two league matches, the Tykes have been unable to rack up an xG total of more than 0.39.

Huddersfield are hardly in the midst of a good run themselves having lost three of their past four.

But thanks to their strong start to the season, they remain in 8th place in the league, five points off a place in the top six.

Away to Barnsley is the perfect game for the Terriers to return to winning ways.
