Hiya! Karate Rooney style!

There are two massive games playing in the Premier League this Sunday afternoon as three of the top four are in action along with one of the sides sitting in the relegation zone. The bottom three closed up yesterday with Leicester winning while Sunderland and Hull were defeated. Aston Villa also upset the odds at Tottenham, now can QPR do the same against fellow Londoners. Also, one of the biggest matches in recent years is the Manchester Derby but will it be van Gaal’s United or Pellegrini’s City that triumph this afternoon? Here is our EPL picks with all odds are provided by

QPR v Chelsea: 8.00 – 4.75 – 1.39

Although they come into this QPR v Chelsea match as the rank outsiders and sitting third bottom of the league Queens Park Rangers have bagged seven goals in their last two matches and have taken seven points from their last five league meetings with the table toppers right now. Goals from Bobby Zamora, Charlie Austin and Matt Phillips have seen a strong showing from the R’s in recent times, but they are still struggling at the back with just one clean sheet in 13 Premier League games and while they will believe that they can grab a goal or two against the league leaders Chris Ramsey’s men will be justifiably concerned about conceding goals too.

Chelsea are missing joint top Premier League goalscorer Diego Costa through injury for the next few matches, although Jose Mourinho will be more concerned about the Man Utd and Arsenal games than today’s clash. Loic Remy has come in and performed well up front and even though the side have been setting the world alight like earlier in the season they are grinding out results. Their last three away games have seen one goal wins over Aston Villa, West Ham and Hull with three goals conceded, and we can see this pattern continuing in this fashion at Loftus Road with a narrow win and both sides finding their way onto the scoresheet. Back Chelsea to beat QPR and both sides to score @ 2.70 in the 10bet Sportsbook!

Man Utd v Man City: 2.55 – 3.30 – 2.80

Its old versus new in this Manchester Derby at Old Trafford as the winners of the last four Premier League titles clash with them sat sitting third and fourth in the league table. United have won 20 league titles to City’s four and they bring the momentum with them into this match as well as early season blues saw them struggling to settle under Louis van Gaal but with the Dutchman have gotten everything in order of late they come into this match having won five in a row and they have taken eight wins and one draw in ten Premier League games.

City, on the other hand have lost three of their last five EPL games and they have managed just one win on the road in the league in 2015, drawing two and losing all of their last three from the other five clashes. They have been beaten at Liverpool, Burnley and Crystal Palace in their three away Premier League fixtures since March 1st and they will be hoping that their recent Manchester Derby matches will see them through this game. They have won all of the last four, but with Sergio Aguero not having scored in five matches and United in fine form right now we can see this match going the way of the home side as they move clear in the battle for automatic Champions League places. Back Manchester United to beat their city rivals in the Manchester Derby @ 2.55 with
