There are key games at both the top and bottom of the Premier League on Saturday, as teams prepare for their third game in a week.

The most significant games arguably take place at Anfield and Craven Cottage, whilst Tottenham also continue their title challenge at home to Wolves.

Fulham to beat Huddersfield @ 11/10

It may only be the halfway point of the season, but Fulham against Huddersfield already has the look of a six-point affair with the bottom two clashing at Craven Cottage.

Fulham have still only recorded one win in seven matches since Claudio Ranieri’s arrival, but their home displays have been much improved. The hosts have collected one win and two draws in their last four home fixtures.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield go into the clash bottom of the table after losing their last six games and David Wagner’s men have recorded just one away win in their nine league fixtures on the road.

The Yorkshire club beat Fulham 1-0 in last month’s clash at the John Smith’s Stadium, but that was in the final throws of Slavisa Jokanovic’s reign.

The last time the two clubs met at Craven Cottage was in the Championship, during the 2016-17 season, when the Cottagers ran out 5-0 victors – Fulham to win to zero can be backed at 2/1.

Liverpool v Arsenal – Over 3.5 Goals @ 13/10

Liverpool against Arsenal is always a fixture to relish and Saturday evening’s game promises much.

Both clubs have seen a big improvement at the back and that has been highlighted, but they have also been among the goals. Between them, the two clubs have scored 84 goals this term and expect more on Saturday.

Five of the last six meetings have seen four goals or more and it could be another free-scoring affair, especially with the top two Premier League goalscorers in action.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has 13 to his name and is 6/1 to score first, while Mohamed Salah is one behind and can be backed at 3/1 to score 2 or more.

Everton to win at Brighton @ 13/10

After a heavy home defeat last weekend, Everton responded in fine fashion with a 5-1 thumping of Burnley on Boxing Day and they will head to Brighton full of confidence.

Although the Seagulls home record is impressive, they go into this game without a win in their last four fixtures – including a 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday.

Although their first-choice centre-back pair return – Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy – goalkeeper Mat Ryan is away on international duty and that could have a big impact.

Richarlison scored twice in the Toffees 3-1 win in the reverse fixture last month, with the Brazilian 8/5 to score at anytime on Saturday.
