Manchester United vs Everton, Super Sunday, 2pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League
This is a proper Sunday. It was great to see 'Big Dunc' with his wholehearted honesty when Everton scored their third.
Everton do not know what style they want as they have had such a variety of managers. Are Manchester United turning the corner? It certainly looked that way against Manchester City and they could be on course for the top four now. Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial looked brilliant, while Scott McTominay's aggression was good once again.
United do give the ball away cheaply and I am unconvinced about them for the top four. They will continue to grind it away and they will get another promising and positive result here.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-1 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Arsenal vs Manchester City, Super Sunday, 4.30pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League
We can guarantee goals in this one. I am going to go for a high scoreline here. Man City posted an emphatic win midweek but have major problems at the back. The Arsenal strikers looked as though they were more up for it and are scoring. Bukayo Saka played his part in the draw at Standard Liege, as did Gabriel Martinelli off the bench - we have some real promising youngsters. These are the games that they haven't got a result in and I am not expecting one here.
Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sometimes do not turn up in these games, if they get picked that is. I really have sympathy for Bernd Leno. He is a top-class goalkeeper but he will make mistakes as all goalkeepers do. He is playing behind a defence who do not protect him. There will be loads of goals in this.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-4 (25/1 with Sky Bet)
Wolves vs Tottenham, Sunday, 2pm
This is a cracking game. Tottenham's defence is leaking goals, but you could see the delight on Jose Mourinho's face walking away with a 3-1 defeat at Bayern Munich in midweek. Ryan Sessegnon scored the goal which was a positive for him and the team, but nobody played well. He is having to continue the way their habits are. Wolves are unbeaten in 11 which is remarkable from their slow start. They have enough in the squad at the moment. - Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez are both in form and they love an open game of football - they do not like having to manipulate the ball. I am going to go with an entertaining Wolves win.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-2 (33/1 with Sky Bet)
Crystal Palace vs Brighton, Monday Night Football, 8pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League
This fixture always seems to be feisty and passionate. Brighton are a different team, they are a positive and a get-on-the-ball side but Crystal Palace have a really nice balance at the moment. They are both in league positions you would not have expected. Their points level is way ahead of schedule and they have nice gaps to everybody else. Will Brighton, the way they play in this situation, have enough on the ball?
These are the games that inspirational individuals turn up and make the difference. This day will belong to Wilfried Zaha and Palace will win.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
