WOLVES | Rayan Ait-Nouri will sit out the trip to Arsenal but Gary O’Neil is hopeful his defender can be back at some point next week.
Pedro Neto is also unavailable for Gameweek 14 but is “back on the grass, doing some running”.

Arsenal host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this weekend, and they will look to continue their impressive run of form with a victory in front of their own fans. Arsenal are currently on top of the league table, and they will want to extend their lead at the summit with a victory here. They are undoubtedly the favourites heading into this contest and should be able to grind out all three points.
The Gunners have picked up four wins from their last four outings against Wolves, and the away side will have to be at their best in order to grind out a result here. Wolves have picked up impressive results against clubs like Tottenham and Manchester City. However, this is likely to be an uphill challenge against a motivated Arsenal team.
Probable Bet: Arsenal win
Brentford vs Luton Town
Brentford will look to get back to winning ways when they host Luton Town in the Premier League this weekend. They are coming into this contest on the back of two consecutive defeats and are 11th in the league table. The home team will look to get back into the top half with a victory here.
Meanwhile, Luton are 13th in the league table with just two wins from 13 league matches. They have lost four of the last six meetings against Brentford and this is likely to be another difficult outing for them.
The away side have been quite vulnerable defensively, conceding 23 goals in 13 league matches. Meanwhile, Brentford have not been very impressive defensively either. This is likely to be an open contest, and both teams are likely to get on the scoresheet.
Probable Bet: Both teams to score
Burnley vs Sheffield United
Burnley host Sheffield United in the Premier League, and they will hope to break their losing streak here. The Clarets are coming into this game on the back of six consecutive defeats in the league, and they are currently at the bottom of the league table.
Burnley are one of the favourites to go down this season, so they need to start picking up points if they harbour hopes of securing Premier League safety. Sheffield United are 18th in the league table, just one point clear of Burnley. They have lost four of the last six matches, and they can open up a gap with their relegation rivals with a victory here.
Matches between these two sides are quite evenly matched, with the two teams winning two each of the last six meetings. 15 goals have been scored in the last six meetings between these two sides, and this is likely to be an open contest as well. A high scoring game is on the cards.
Probable Bet: Over 2.5 goals
Nottingham Forest vs Everton
Nottingham Forest have failed to win five of the last six Premier League matches, and they will be desperate to pick up all three points here. They will look to take advantage of Everton’s vulnerabilities and pile further misery on them. The Toffees are currently 19th in the league table after the points deduction, and they have failed to win three of the last five league matches.
Both teams will be desperate for all three points, and it remains to be seen who comes out on top. The two teams are quite evenly matched on current form, and they could end up cancelling each other out. The last three meetings between these two sides have ended in a draw; this one could follow suit.
Probable Bet: Draw
Newcastle vs Manchester United
Eddie Howe on the challenge of Manchester United:
"You can never underestimate the qualities of Manchester United, they have a very good Head Coach who is leading them, we have total respect to our opposition. They are performing well; they have quality players. We need to keep… pic.twitter.com/lYLVkczYGE
— Newcastle United FC (@NUFC) December 1, 2023
Newcastle United host Manchester United in a mouthwatering Premier League clash this weekend, and it promises to be an entertaining affair. The two teams are separated by just one point in the table.
Manchester United have picked up five wins from the last six league matches, whereas Newcastle United have three victories and two draws in that time. Despite their recent form and standing in the table, this is likely to be a closely contested affair, and the Magpies will look to pick up a win at home.
Newcastle have been quite difficult to beat at home, and Manchester United have shown vulnerability quite often this season. The last six meetings between these two sides have been quite evenly matched, with both teams winning two each of the last six matches.
This is likely to be another edge-of-the-seat affair, and the two teams could cancel each other out. However, this is likely to be a high-scoring game, and both teams will look to outscore each other. Neither side prefer to sit deep and take a defensive approach, and an open game is on the cards.
Probable Bet: Over 2.5 goals.
Bournemouth vs Aston Villa
Bournemouth host Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend, and they will look to continue their recent form with a morale-boosting victory at home. The Cherries have picked up three wins from the last four league matches, and they will fancy their chances of getting something out of this contest.
They have an impressive head-to-head record against Aston Villa with four wins in the last six meetings between the two sides. Meanwhile, the West Midlands club are in impressive form this season, and they are fourth in the league table.
They have picked up four wins and a draw from their last six outings in the Premier League and they will be the favourites heading into this contest, regardless of their record against Bournemouth. Unai Emery’s men are currently full of confidence and momentum, and they should be able to grind out all three points away from home.
Probable Bet: Aston Villa win
West Ham vs Crystal Palace
West Ham United host Crystal Palace in the Premier League, and they will look to build on their recent wins over Nottingham Forest and Burnley. The Hammers ended their losing streak with two consecutive league wins, and they will look to build on that and close in on the European qualification spots.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are in abysmal form right now, and they are 13th in the league table. The Eagles have lost four of the last five league matches, and this will be a difficult challenge for them
Both teams have been quite vulnerable defensively, and this is likely to be an open game with a fair few chances for either side. Both teams are in need of a win and are unlikely to take a defensive approach. The two teams are likely to get on the score sheet and a high-scoring game is on the cards. 26 goals have been scored in the last six meetings between West Ham and Crystal Palace. This one is unlikely to be any different.
Probable Bet: Over 2.5 goals/ Both teams to score
Chelsea vs Brighton

Chelsea host Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League, and they will look to get back to winning ways at home. The Blues are currently 10th in the league table with just two wins from the last six league matches. They are coming into this contest on the back of a thrashing against Newcastle United. So, Mauricio Pochettino will demand a strong reaction from his players.
Meanwhile, Brighton are eighth in the league table, and they ended their winless streak with a victory against Nottingham Forest. They will look to pile further misery on Chelsea and grind out a positive result away from home.
Despite failing to win four of the last six league matches, Brighton have been difficult to beat. They have picked up four draws in those outings, meaning Chelsea will have to work hard to get all three points here. This is likely to be an even contest on current form, and two teams are likely to end up cancelling each other out in a draw.
Probable Bet: Draw
Liverpool vs Fulham
Liverpool host Fulham in the Premier League, and they will look to continue their impressive run of form against the London club. They are unbeaten in nine of their last ten meetings against Fulham while keeping nine clean sheets in the last 11 home meetings against the West London side.
In addition, Liverpool are coming into the game on the back of three impressive performances against Brentford, Manchester City and LASK. They are full of confidence, and this should be a comprehensive victory for them at Anfield. Fulham have failed to win four of the last six league matches, and this will be an uphill challenge for them.
Probable Bet: Liverpool win
Manchester City vs Tottenham

Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspur in what should be a thrilling affair this weekend. The Premier League champions will look to extend their impressive run of form with a victory at home. They are currently undefeated in 27 of the last 30 league matches. In addition, they are unbeaten in the last five Premier League matches.
However, they have failed to win the last two outings in the league, and this is likely to be an interesting contest. Both Tottenham and Manchester City have won three each of the last six meetings between these two teams, and this is unlikely to be a straightforward victory for the home team.
Both teams have struggled in their last few outings and they will be desperate to bounce back strongly. A win here would send out a strong statement, so the two teams will look to grind out all three points. Both teams prefer a free-flowing attacking approach, and this is likely to be an open game with plenty of goals.
Probable Bet: Over 2.5 goals
