Ally’s Acca: Manchester United, Newcastle, Ipswich and Leeds all to win – (was 23/4) NOW 7/1 – CLAIM HERE
1. Manchester United to win away at Burnley
Manchester United lead their opponents on Sunday night by five points in the league, and put in a spirited performance in their defeat against away at Bayern Munich in midweek.
Burnley are still winless in the league this season following promotion from the Championship back in May, picking up just one point from their opening four matches this time around and sitting down in 19th in the table.
The Red Devils have won four of their last five matches against Burnley, losing only once away from home at the Clarets since 1968.
2. Newcastle to win away at Sheffield United
Newcastle have emerged from the other side of their tricky run of fixtures which ended in three consecutive defeats, securing a win against Brentford in the league last weekend before earning a clean sheet at the San Siro in a 0-0 draw against AC Milan on Tuesday.
Sheffield United are another side who are yet to pick up a win this season after being promoted from the Championship last season, and have lost five of their six matches they’ve played in all competitions this season.
Newcastle have won six of the last seven meetings with Sheffield Untied ahead of this weekend, and have kept a clean sheet in three of the last four, including their most recent meeting back in May 2021.
3. Ipswich to win at home against Blackburn
Ipswich have impressed tremendously since their promotion from League One last season, winning eight of their nine matches they’ve played in all competitions this campaign, including all of their last four, leaving them in third in the league heading into the weekend.
Blackburn have lost two of their last three games which has seen them drop down to 12th in the table, conceding three goals in each of those defeats – no team in the top half of the table have conceded more goals than Rovers.
Blackburn have won just one of their last five matches against Ipswich, losing two of the last three at Portman Road, a stadium they haven’t won at since 1994, nine meetings ago.
4. Leeds to win at home against Watford
Leeds have been beaten on just one occasion in the league this season, coming back on the second day of the season, leaving the Yorkshire side without defeat in their last five matches and unbeaten at home all season.
Watford have won only one of their last seven matches in all competitions, and are yet to win away from home, all contributing to the Hornets falling down to 14th in the table, five places below their opponents on Saturday.
Leeds did the double over Watford the last time they were in the same division, keeping clean sheets in both games during the 2021-22 Premier League season.
