Dimitar Berbatov GW21 Premier League Predictions: Five correct score tips up to 14/1

Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov
Berba has five correct score tips for part one of GW21

The Premier League is in it's mini winter break, which means we only have five matches this weekend and five next weekend. So here with part one of his GW21 Correct Score tips is Dimitar Berbatov...

Burnley v Luton - Friday 19:45

Match Odds 90: Burnley 5/61.84, Draw 15/82.88, Luton 13/53.60

It's a massive game for both teams. Burnley can win to close the gap to one point. If Luton win then it's a comfortable gap on Burnley. I'll go with Burnley to win.

Prediction: 2-1 @ 7/18.00

Chelsea v Fulham - Saturday 12:30

Match Odds 90: Chelsea 8/131.61, Draw 17/5, Fulham 4/15.00

I don't know what to say anymore when it comes to Chelsea, honestly. So many teams are struggling to put the ball in the net at the moment, it shows you how important it is to have a striker who can score goals and how good it is if you have more than one guy to score the goals.

When you don't have the players who can score then your game suffers. You draw 0-0 or you lose games. If it continues then the only logical thing to do is to go out on the training pitch and continue to do what you've done before - trying to put the ball in the back of the net.

Based on Chelsea's performance against Middlesbrough, I'll go for a draw in this one.

Prediction: 1-1 @ 13/27.50

Newcastle v Manchester City - Saturday 17:30

Match Odds 90: Newcastle 4/15.00, Draw 5/23.50, Man City 1/21.50

That's an interesting one. I want Newcastle to win, but I don't think that's going to happen. At the same time, City need to win because dropping points isn't a good thing. I'll go for a big surprise and say a draw.

You never know with Newcastle or Man City. Man City will play the way they play, that'll never change. Newcastle, at home, with their fans going crazy to support their team, the players feel that and try to go and score goals.

There is a possibility to see something similar to last season's 3-3 draw at St James' Park, but maybe we won't witness quite the exact the same game.

Prediction: 2-2 @ 12/113.00

Bet now

Everton v Aston Villa - Sunday 14:00

Match Odds 90: Everton 13/82.63, Draw 15/82.88, Aston Villa 13/102.30

This is an interesting game because Everton need the points and Aston Villa are flying. I want Aston Villa to continue to put pressure on the big teams. Everton are doing okay as well. But let's go for Aston Villa to win the game.

Prediction: 1-3 @ 14/115.00

Bet now

Manchester United v Tottenham - Sunday 16:30

Match Odds 90: Man United 11/102.11, Draw 2/13.00, Tottenham 9/52.80

I can see this being a tight game and I'm going to say it will be 1-0 to United. It sounds boring, but I hope that's not the case. I think there's a lot at stake for both teams. That can sometimes play with your mind and make you not produce your best game possible.

Prediction: 1-0 @ 11/112.00
