There are only five Premier League matches taking place from Saturday to Monday this weekend – with Manchester City, Leicester, Southampton and Chelsea all involved in FA Cup action.

On Saturday, Newcastle take on high-flying West Ham at lunchtime, with Wolves and Sheffield United doing battle in the night match.

Arsenal host London rivals Fulham on Sunday before Manchester United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford and then Liverpool travel to Leeds on Monday night.

As ever Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk.

Newcastle vs West Ham

Newcastle need points and they have had a couple of good results recently, but West Ham are the surprise package of the season. Given they are still fighting for their lives and have done well recently I will go with a bit of a surprise here and back Newcastle. Prediction 1-0.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Newcastle 11/4, Draw 13/5, West Ham 6/5

Wolves vs Sheffield United

Sheffield United are down and we all know they have had a bad season. Wolves haven’t been as good the season either, but they are doing enough, and I think they have the quality to get the three points in this one, so I’ll go with Wolves. Prediction 2-0.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Wolves 8/11, Draw 11/4, Sheffield United 11/2

Arsenal vs Fulham

Ahh my old side Fulham have struggled, and survival is looking even more complicated. Arsenal have been really poor this season, but they had that great win last time out in the Europa League so they will be confident. Even though Fulham are desperate for the points, I think Arsenal will win this one. Prediction 2-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Arsenal 4/5, Draw 14/5, Fulham 9/2

Manchester United vs Burnley

Solskjaer has said United aren’t out of the title race yet, that makes this match a must win game. They need to win these games if they want to be title contenders. They could close the gap to eight points with six games to go with a win, which I think they will do. Prediction 2-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Man United 2/5, Draw 9/2, Burnley 9/1

Leeds vs Liverpool

That is a good game. Both sides have great attacking talent and I hope we will see an exciting match. Last time out Leeds surprised us all against City and I think they can serve it up to Liverpool, but Klopp’s side will be desperate for the points to get into the top four so I will go with a draw. Prediction 2-2.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Leeds 4/1, Draw 7/2, Liverpool 5/7

Dimitar Berbatov’s top picks of Wolves, Arsenal and Man United all to win is a combined odds of 11/4 on the Betfair Sportsbook here: https://www.betfair.com/sport/football
