Two footy-mad fans have already won a brand-new PlayStation 5 each with Score Predictor this season and we're giving away another this coming week.

It doesn't matter one iota if you're late to the party, get involved now and you'll be in the mix to land the highly-desired games console this weekend.

Let's run through Matchweek 3's chosen fixtures…


Arsenal v Fulham

Fans of the Cottagers will be concerned with what they've seen from their team so far this season.

They beat Everton on the opening weekend but were fully indebted to Bernd Leno's NINE saves.

Last Saturday, Brentford strolled to a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage and the xG statistics suggest the winning margin should have been even greater.

Given that Fulham have allowed their opponents 36 shots across their first two outings, it seems likely the Gunners will have their wicked way with Marco Silva's men in north London.

2-0 is the most common prediction at this stage but we feel that's conservative.

Our Prediction: 4-0 to Arsenal

Manchester United v Nottingham Forest

Steve Cooper's side have been abysmal away from home since promotion to the top flight, having earned just eight points on the road in just over a year.

Ordinarily, the Red Devils would feel confident of big win but they've looked out of sorts at the start of the campaign.

Victory over Wolves was partially soured by the fact they were outplayed and defeat to Tottenham has left Erik ten Hag with a few problems to address.

However, the underlying numbers suggest Man United have done relatively well in terms of chance creation and just a slight improvement in the finishing department would yield positive results.

Our Prediction: 2-1 to Manchester United

Brighton v West Ham

The Seagulls couldn't make it a hat-trick of 4-1 victories, could they?

We're inclined to give the Hammers more credit after their spirited win over Chelsea on Sunday but a trip to the Amex is a daunting prospect these days.

Roberto De Zerbi's side have been in a league of their own this term when it comes to attacking impotence and with Nayef Aguerd suspended it will be very difficult for the visitors to hold firm.

Brighton's have generated more xG from open play than any other club in the league after two Matchweeks – and it's not even close.

Our Prediction: 3-1 to Brighton

Sheffield United v Manchester City

Like Fulham v Arsenal, this match-up screams cricket score on paper.

The Blades allowed Forest 16 shots and they let Crystal Palace have 24 shots the week previous.

Paul Heckingbottom's side will have to tighten up significantly if they are to avoid a mauling at the hands of Erling Haaland and company.

In contrast, the treble-winners are the only team yet to concede a goal in the Premier League this season.

The three most-common predictions all revolve around a clean sheet for the champions.

Our Prediction: 5-0 to Manchester City

Newcastle v Liverpool

This is by far the most competitive Score Predictor fixture this Matchweek.

Eddie Howe's men ran riot against Aston Villa but were totally negated by Man City while the Reds bagged an expected win at home Bournemouth following their entertaining draw at Stamford Bridge.

Jurgen Klopp's troops continue to look ultra threatening in attack but vulnerable in defence – an accurate description of Newcastle at the back end of last season as well.

The Magpies have home advantage and are well equipped to exploit the flaws in Liverpool's system but it feels counterintuative to go against a team that includes Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah.

2-2 is the most-popular guess among all Score Predictor players at the time of writing and we're inclined to agree.

Our Prediction: 2-2 draw
