The penultimate weekend of Premier League action is upon us and it presents us with one of the last opportunities to build an accumulator from the 2023/24 season. There are some cracking fixtures in store on Saturday that will have repercussions at both ends of the table. With that in mind, I've taken a look at the games I think are best-equipped to deliver over 2.5 goals.

As such, I have put together an accumulator of six matches from the top-flight on Saturday that pays out at an interesting 6/1. Below you will find the reasonings for my over 2.5 goals tips.

Over 2.5 Goals Tips

  • Fulham vs Manchester City
  • Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley
  • West Ham vs Luton Town
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Crystal Palace
  • Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea

Over 2.5 goals acca at 6.62/1

Fulham vs Manchester City

After thrashing Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-1 last weekend, Manchester City are in their strong end-of-season form as they look to close in on a record-breaking fourth consecutive Premier League title. Norwegian goalscoring sensation Erling Haaland scored four of their goals as he strengthened his position in the race for the Golden Boot.

I'm expecting that he and his side will be in for more goals in the final two weeks of the campaign as they cannot afford to concede any ground to challengers Arsenal. Over 2.5 goals has delivered in 63% (22/35) of their games this season and I don't see any reason why it shouldn't land at Craven Cottage.

Newcastle United vs Brighton & Hove Albion

Newcastle United have been in scoring form of late with three of their last four league matches seeing them score at least four goals. Eddie Howe's attackers have been performing excellently in recent weeks and I sense the likes of Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon and Jacob Murphy could profit on home soil against Brighton & Hove Albion this Saturday.

The Magpies have seen 72% (13/18) of their matches at St James' Park this season deliver at least three goals and I think they can turn in another fruitful attacking display against the Seagulls.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley

When these two sides met earlier in the season Tottenham Hotspur were 5-2 winners over Burnley at Turf Moor. That was when they had a bright start to the season, whereas now they are on a losing streak of four games.

Spurs have massively dented their top-four hopes but it is not yet out of the question, although they are also relying on Aston Villa to slip up. This home clash with Burnley will provide them with a great opportunity to head into the final week of the season with some optimism, as they still have a game in hand on the Villans, albeit against Man City.

They need to raise their confidence ahead of that clash and they might just be able to do that on home soil against the struggling Clarets. Although, they have been picking up points and scoring goals of late so it'll likely be more competitive than their previous meeting.

West Ham United vs Luton Town

West Ham are in disappointing form at the moment, having lost three of their last four fixtures as their defensive troubles this season have continued. They have conceded 70 goals this term already, something which relegation-threatened Luton Town will want to capitalise on at the London Stadium.

The Hatters need to win to give themselves their best chance of survival, but they have been prone to conceding goals throughout the campaign. They will need to be wary of the Hammers' Jarrod Bowen, Mohammed Kudus and Lucas Paqueta, who can all have an impact in the final third. I think over 2.5 goals has a very strong chance of delivering in this one, particularly because it has been a winning selection in 72% (13/18) of Luton's trips on the road in 2023/24.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are in excellent form and scoring goals in the process. The Eagles have won four of their last five in the league and have scored 13 along the way. Wolves will be more than aware of the threat Palace now pose as they are one of the most in-form teams in the division right now.

Their attacking stars, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze have all been among the goals in recent weeks, and I'm expecting them to combine once again to provide more goals in a Crystal Palace fixture.

Nottingham Forest vs Chelsea

Chelsea are scoring plenty of goals themselves at the moment, mostly thanks to Cole Palmer's 21-goal haul for the season. But the likes of Nicolas Jackson and Conor Gallagher have been grabbing goals lately too as the Blues look to be finishing the campaign strongly.

Up next for them is a trip to Nottingham Forest, who are just three points above the relegation zone, and the Tricky Trees have conceded 63 goals already this term. I'm expecting Chelsea to use the momentum from their 5-0 romping of West Ham at the weekend to turn in another fruitful attacking display at the City Ground.
