Be sure to check out our Premier League Betting Offers to be in the best betting position for the showdown.
Elsewhere, Leicester, Arsenal and West Ham fill the remaining places in the top five. Tottenham and Chelsea are hot on their heels as we head into the next round of fixtures. Watford sit bottom. Keep reading for fresh Premier League tips from Bonus Code Bets ambassador John Barnes.
West Ham v Crystal Palace
West Ham currently sit fifth in the table having stretched their unbeaten run to six games since their opening day defeat by Manchester City – with their latest victory coming against Manchester United.
However, the east London side have been forced to settle for draws, albeit away, against Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Brighton. They will be keen to turn those games into wins as soon as possible.
Crystal Palace struggled in the summer transfer window. But manager Roy Hodgson will be pleased with his side’s start to the season. The Eagles sit two points above Manchester United in ninth.
John Barnes’ Prediction: West Ham 1-1 Crystal Palace
The Bonus Code Bets ambassador expects a tight affair at the London Stadium.
Southampton v Chelsea
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard hasn’t enjoyed the greatest start to life as a Premier League manager. But he will have been buoyed by their comfortable home victory against Brighton last weekend.
They face another seaside club this weekend in the form of Southampton, who have lost their previous two games in the division, with both Bournemouth and Tottenham taking three points.
Their less than encouraging start has left them just two points clear of the relegation zone and they will need to up their game to win this as Lampard looks to make it back-to-back league wins.
John Barnes’ Prediction: Southampton 1-3 Chelsea
The Bonus Code Bets ambassador thinks Frank Lampard’s side will return to west London with three points.
Newcastle v Manchester United
Newcastle fans were up in arms when Steve Bruce was named manager and things haven’t got much better for them since, with last weekend’s 5-0 defeat by Leicester difficult for many to take.
Bruce’s side have lost four of their opening seven games with their only victory coming away against Tottenham back in August. They have also conceded 13 goals and scored just four of their own.
Manchester United fans could argue they have had a tough task of it too, with just two wins from a possible seven. However, they still sit in the top half of the table and should come away with victory.
John Barnes’ Prediction: Newcastle 1-2 Manchester United
The Bonus Code Bets ambassador is expecting the points to go back to Manchester.
