Phil Thompson makes his Super 6 selections for Saturday's round. Predict all six correct scorelines to win £250,000...
The Liverpool legend recorded nine points last weekend, correctly predicting Fulham 2-1 Aston Villa, as well as wins for Southampton and Brentford.
Thommo is predicting straightforward Saturdays for Leicester, Everton and Manchester United, but what are you tipping in the free-to-play game? There's £250,000 for the taking so get your scores in now!
Chelsea 1-1 Burnley (9/1 with Sky Bet)
Burnley have not been Burnley-like as of late. I thought they had turned a corner, and I know Chelsea got a decent win against Nottingham Forest, but it seems to be playing at home that is the problem. There is a bit of nervousness for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the moment, so I think they could come unstuck again. There is still plenty of work to be done for Frank Lampard and his team.
Super Stat: Two be Frank?
Although 42.1 per cent of Super 6 players are backing a 2-0 Chelsea win in Saturday's Super 6 round, Frank Lampard's side have lost their last two matches at Stamford Bridge without scoring. Play here for free.
Everton 1-0 Brighton (7/1 with Sky Bet)
I am unsure what you will get from Brighton as of late. Everton have to respond from the embarrassing loss at Liverpool. You saw the old failings of Everton as they went down at Anfield, and perhaps why they have struggled so much this season. Goodison Park can be a difficult place to play when things are not going right after 15-20 minutes. The Everton players have to stand up and be counted in this one, and I think they will get the job done.
Super Stat: Everton edge Brighton?
Over 45 per cent of Super 6 players believe Everton will win and keep a clean sheet against Brighton. What score will take your fancy with £250k up for grabs? Play for free.
Leicester 2-0 Southampton (7/1 with Sky Bet)
The Saints are on a lovely run at the moment. They are playing with more confidence than at any other point this season. They need to keep Danny Ings fit, as he is the only player that I can think of who has been able to score regular goals for Southampton - they are pinning their hopes on him. They are coming up against a Leicester side, who will now have a fit Jamie Vardy, which could be a serious worry for them.
Super Stat: Foxes on the Prowl?
With two wins from two after defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool, Leicester look set to mount another run of wins in the Premier League, with 90 per cent of Super 6 players hoping they will get the victory against Southampton on Saturday. Play for free.
Manchester United 2-0 Norwich (6/1 with Sky Bet)
It was certainly extremely difficult for Manchester United against Manchester City. It was a City team who had all the skills and abilities, and the ability of a manager in Pep Guardiola to confuse the opposition of where his players were going to play. Where was Bernardo Silva? Where was Raheem Sterling? Where was Riyad Mahrez. I don't think United could get to grips with it. This is a game in which they have to respond. Norwich may just be finding form, but with that form they must start finding the results. With this one at the weekend, I can't see that unfolding just yet.
Super Stat: To dare is to do?
Manchester United were embarrassed by Manchester City in the Carabao Cup, and it has been reflected in the selection percentages. One in 10 Super 6 entrants are backing a draw at Old Trafford, and more pressure to be heaped on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Play here for free.
Wolves 3-1 Newcastle (12/1 with Sky Bet)
Newcastle have gone through some difficult games but I would have expected them to pick up at least some points from those three. You pitch your Leicester's with the likes of Wolves with the way they are both getting on. Wolves are becoming a very difficult team to play against currently, and I think they will only kick on from here.
Super Stat: Wolves to be ruthless?
It is not only Thommo who is backing a Wolves victory, with 81 per cent backing a home win at Molineux. With £250k on the line, what score will you predict?
Leeds 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday (6/1 with Sky Bet)
What a game! Sheffield Wednesday are playing well at the moment. Leeds looked like a top European side against Arsenal. They absolutely dominated the first half, and it shows what they are capable of doing with performances like that. If they play half as well as they did against Arsenal, they should win. It is a fantastic game which brings back so many memories. Both teams are playing so well but Leeds will edge it.
Super Stat: Leeds to kick on?
Despite how they performed at the Emirates, only 79 per cent of Super 6 players are hoping Leeds will claim all three points from this Yorkshire derby. Who will you side with? Play for free.
