Manchester United 1-2 West Ham

Manchester United were incredibly fortunate to beat Brentford in midweek, conceding a whopping 2.87 xGA in a poor defensive display. That followed up a 1.74 xGA performance at Villa Park last weekend, with it very obvious that United have major defensive issues.

Their attacking process has been very hit and miss throughout what has to be called a kind schedule, and all in all, I'm concerned about Ralf Rangnick's side and their chances of finishing in the top four.

West Ham were unfortunate to lose to Leeds last weekend in an enthralling encounter, with their attack once again purring (xG: WHU 2.70 - 2.10 LEE).

Over their last four league games, the Hammers have averaged 2.66 xGF per game, and if they continue in a similar manner here, they should come away with a positive result due to United's inconsistencies.


Leeds 3-1 Newcastle

Leeds were excellent at West Ham last weekend, creating an abundance of chances, something they have started doing regularly after a sluggish start to the season in that department.

They racked up 2.10 xGF at the London Stadium, and 2.01 at home to Burnley before that. In fact, the Whites have only lost the xG battle at home once in seven games.

Newcastle dropped a place in the table last week as they failed to beat Watford while Norwich picked up a win. They are getting closer to where they deserve to be according to Infogol's xG table (20th).

Since Eddie Howe's appointment, Newcastle have generated an average of 1.12 xGF per game (seventh worst) while allowing 2.08 xGA per game (third worst), so have barely improved, if at all.

WHAT IS EXPECTED GOALS? USE xG TO INCREASE PROFITS IN FOOTBALL BETTING

Brentford 1-1 Wolves

Brentford have lost three straight league games heading into this match, with their defence fully exposed, allowing an average of 2.58 xGA per game in that time.

They deserved to get a result against Manchester United in midweek, racking up more chances than their opponents (xG: BRE 2.87 - 2.19 MUN), as has often been the case when playing at home this season (1.69 xGF, 1.16 xGA per game).

Wolves are rolling, unbeaten in four league games including three wins. However, while they deservedly beat Southampton in their last league contest, they were fortunate to beat both Manchester United and Brighton.

There continues to be inconsistency in chance creation at Wolves, which will see them play out more close contests as the season progresses.


Bournemouth 2-1 Hull

Bournemouth were unfortunate to lose at Luton last weekend based on xG (LUT 0.95 - 1.29 BOU), but will nonetheless be looking forward to a return to the Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries have been nothing short of sensational at home this term, averaging 2.08 xGF and 1.15 xGA per game in front of their own fans.

Hull took a huge and deserved scalp in midweek by beating Blackburn, racking up 2.67 xGF on that occasion.

The Tigers have struggled on the road though this term, averaging 0.84 xGF and 1.33 xGA per game.


West Brom 2-0 Peterborough

West Brom's recent form has been horrendous, winless in four league games and scoring just once in that time - a run that has seen them slip to fifth.

They have stopped creating chances at the rate we saw at the start of the season, but that could easily change against a porous Peterborough defence.

Posh were on the end of a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Coventry last weekend, a game in which they allowed 2.71 xGA.

This season, when playing away from home, Peterborough have averaged 0.84 xGF and 2.01 xGA per game, which doesn't bode well heading to the Hawthorns.


Stoke 1-2 Fulham

Stoke bounced back from successive league defeats by beating Hull on the road, a dominant display in which they created plenty of good chances (xG: HUL 0.34 - 2.14 STO).

They face a stiff task this weekend though, but at least they boast an impressive xG process at the bet365 (1.26 xGF, 0.85 xGA per game) ahead of Fulham's visit.

The Cottagers have been on a tear this past few weeks, winning three straight games and scoring 19 goals in the process. The first of those victories saw them rack up 5.35 xGF!

Most recently they thrashed Birmingham 6-2 thanks to a clinical display (1.44 xGF), but over the course of the season when playing away from home, Marco Silva's side have averaged 2.07 xGF and 1.11 xGA per game. They will be hard to stop.
