Chris Sutton offers his predictions for the upcoming midweek games in the Premier League, including the highly anticipated title showdown between Manchester City and Arsenal.
Crystal Palace fell 2-0 to Wolves.
Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace remain undefeated, but they lacked a goal threat in their draw against Everton on Saturday. Hodgson was brought in to ensure the team stayed in the Premier League, and with a nine-point lead over the relegation zone and six games left to play, they are practically safe, although not mathematically so. Wolves, on the other hand, may still need to win one or two more games to secure their place in the league. A 1-1 draw seems like the most likely result, as neither team seems poised to score many goals and both would probably be content with a draw.
The weekend was a lucky escape for Aston Villa as they were held to a draw by Brentford despite being tipped to win by some. Meanwhile, Fulham has won two consecutive games and looks rejuvenated. Although it will be a close match, with Villa being in good form under Unai Emery and playing at home, they are still the favorites to win.
Fulham's recent success has made the game against Aston Villa
Fulham's recent success has made the game against Aston Villa an intriguing one, according to experts. However, Villa have been in great form under Unai Emery and are playing at home, making them the favorites to win. Despite a lackluster performance against Brentford last weekend, Villa managed to earn a draw. The game is expected to be a close one, but many are predicting that Villa will come out on top, possibly with a 1-0 scoreline.
