With the help of our AI-powered supercomputer, we provide our Premier League match predictions for every match in each gameweek.


The Premier League season in 2023-24 is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory.

We have a three-way title race, with defending champions Manchester City the team to beat, and Arsenal and Liverpool pushing them until the end. Meanwhile, almost half the division started the campaign with realistic hopes of European qualification.

There is set to be an equally intense battle to avoid relegation, with playing in the Premier League now more valuable financially than ever before.

Our AI-powered Opta supercomputer has been making its match picks for every fixture over the course of a hugely exciting season.

Read on as Opta Analyst provides its Premier League predictions, and be sure to check back here every week.

23-25 April

The Opta supercomputer has delivered its latest match predictions ahead of a midweek of action providing six games to enjoy.

The matches taking place from Tuesday to Thursday were originally planned on Matchday 29 but were rearranged due to participation in the FA Cup.

Premier League Match Predictions April 23-25

The midweek games begin with a big London derby at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night, as title-chasing Arsenal host Chelsea.

The Gunners currently lead the Premier League on goal difference ahead of Liverpool, and are a point above Manchester City, who have a game in hand on both Mikel Arteta and Jürgen Klopp’s sides.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four league meetings with Chelsea and have lost just one of their last eight Premier League clashes against the Blues. They beat Chelsea 3-1 in this exact fixture last season but haven’t won consecutive Premier League home games versus their London rivals since October 2003.

Of course, Arsenal lost their last home game with a 2-0 reverse against Aston Villa, but they haven’t suffered consecutive defeats at the Emirates in the EPL since April 2022. The Opta supercomputer saw Arsenal win 51.0% of its pre-match simulations of the game, with Chelsea picking up all three points 22.5% of the time.

Should he be fit to play, Arsenal will need to be aware of the threat posed by Cole Palmer if they are to back up the supercomputer’s prediction.

The young Englishman has scored 20 Premier League goals this season, with 10 of these coming in his last five appearances. Only three Chelsea players have ever scored more in a single Premier League campaign – Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (23 in both 2000-01 and 2001-02), Frank Lampard (22 in 2009-10) and Didier Drogba (29 in 2009-10).

Liverpool will head into their Merseyside derby clash with Everton on Wednesday night knowing whether they could overtake Arsenal at the top of the league, depending on if the Gunners drop points 24 hours earlier.

Klopp’s side should be confident of avoiding defeat at least at Goodison Park as Everton are winless in their last 12 Premier League home games against Liverpool (D9 L3), their longest run without a home win against any opponent in their league history.

In fact, Liverpool have lost just one of their last 26 Premier League games against Everton (W12 D13), winning four of the last five and keeping a clean sheet in the last four.

The current gulf between these two rivals can be shown in the Opta Power Rankings, with Liverpool ranked as the fifth best team in club football across the world, while Everton are down in 64th place.

The Opta supercomputer gives Liverpool a 56.2% chance of success against their rivals on Wednesday evening, with Everton ending their dreadful winless home run against the Reds in 18.1% of simulations.

The ‘Gary O’Neil Clasico’ is another of Wednesday’s Premier League fixtures, as the English manager’s former side Bournemouth travel to his current team Wolves.

O’Neil outwitted Bournemouth earlier this season away from home, with Wolves coming from behind to win 2-1. Those were three of the 27 points that Bournemouth have dropped from winning positions in the Premier League this season, with only Brentford (30) dropping more.

Dominic Solanke scored for Bournemouth in that fixture, and is their top scorer with 18 goals in the Premier League this season. Nine of those goals have come away from home, the joint-most by a Cherries player in a Premier League campaign, along with Josh King in 2016-17 and Callum Wilson in 2018-19.

Solanke Goals in 2023-24

Wolves are the favourites in this clash, with the Opta supercomputer projecting a 41.9% likelihood of victory, while Bournemouth won 28.8% of the simulations before kick-off.

Manchester United are deemed the most likely side to win across this six-game midweek schedule by the Opta supercomputer (71.2%) but based on their performance on Sunday in their FA Cup semi-final versus Coventry, it might be down to the weakness of their opponents rather than their own strengths.

Sheffield United have had a miserable campaign so far and sit bottom of the league with just 16 points from 33 games. They have conceded a league-high 88 goals and their average of 2.67 goals conceded per game is the highest ever seen by a side in a single Premier League season.

However, Sheffield United have caused a shock at Old Trafford before. The Blades won 2-1 in their last away league game against Man Utd in January 2021, ending a run of seven straight such defeats at the famous stadium. They last won consecutive visits to the Red Devils in April/December 1973.

Wednesday night’s fourth game comes at Selhurst Park – scene of Crystal Palace’s demolition of West Ham on Sunday afternoon – with the Eagles hosting Newcastle United.

Despite that 5-2 win, where Palace led 4-0 after just 31 minutes, the Opta supercomputer makes Newcastle the favourites for this clash (41.6%).

A lot of that prediction might be down to the fact that Palace are winless in their last five Premier League meetings with Newcastle (D3 L2), failing to score in each of the last four. Eddie Howe’s side are also looking to win three consecutive Premier League games for the second time this season, previously doing so in September.

The final midweek game sees reigning Premier League champions Manchester City head to Brighton in what is one of their trickiest games remaining in the competition this season. By the time they kick-off on Thursday, Pep Guardiola’s side could find themselves four points behind both Arsenal and Liverpool, so there might be some added pressure.

This is a Man City side that seemingly thrive on pressure, though. They are now unbeaten in their last 17 Premier League games (W13 D4), last having a longer run within the same season between November and March in 2020-21 (19).

City have scored in all 13 of their Premier League games against Brighton – they’ve only faced Bournemouth (14) more often in the competition while scoring in every game.

One statistic that might provide some hope for Arsenal and Liverpool supporters is that both times Man City have failed to beat Brighton in the Premier League have come in a midweek game at the Amex Stadium – they lost 3-2 in May 2021 (Tuesday) and drew 1-1 in May 2023 (Wednesday). The bad news? City had already been confirmed as league champions on both of those occasions.
