Premier League predictions: Newcastle can get a result at Manchester United,

After tipping two 33/1 winners last week, including Declan Rice to score first, Jones Knows is back with his Premier League predictions and betting angles.

West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday 12pm, live on Sky Sports

When I see the words West Ham, I come over in the same reaction as to when someone asks me to do some algebra. My head just goes to jelly. West Ham are my unsolvable equation.

When I fancy them, they lose. When I take them on, they turn into the Brazil team from the 1970s.

Deep down my gut and the numbers are telling me they are overperforming still and coming out on the right side of some fine margins but David Moyes has created a well-oiled machine and has invested shrewdly in players with points to prove in forward areas.

Saying that, I’m not sure Moyes has the tools to beat the elite teams. There is of course an argument to suggest whether Tottenham should be included in that category after picking up just 11 points in their last 11 Premier League games. But, Hammers fans rejoice, I’m happy to play the away win here.

Moyes has never beaten a Jose Mourinho side in 15 attempts – the most he has faced a manager in his career without winning and surely Mourinho has to let his side off the leash here.

And when the boss allows his front players to licence to play, there’s a good chance Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are going to link up to devastating effect. Kane has assisted a Son goal nine times this season and I’m happy to take a punt on the 8/1 for another.

Aston Villa vs Leicester, Sunday 2.30pm, live on Sky Sports

Has Aston Villa’s season peaked? Midway through January, I was seriously close to backing them for a top-four finish but their performances have stalled in the last four games. In fact, Dean Smith’s side can count themselves quite fortunate to come out of that run with seven points when assessing their attacking data. In that period, they actually sit bottom of the expected goals scored table in the Premier League, registering a figure of just 2.65. Before that, they had ranked third in the division for total expected goals scored. Only West Brom have had fewer shots than them in their last four games too with just 33 registered.

I’ve got to be against them this week where that lack of attacking threat comes up against a brick wall of a Leicester defence.

Brendan Rodgers’s side have conceded just one goal in their last five games – Mohamed Salah managed to break through in the win over Liverpool, but that’s been it. It’s no coincidence this fine run has developed with Caglar Soyuncu back to full fitness. The fact that Leicester have coped so smoothly without the Turkish international this season is a testament to the management of Rodgers and the potential shown by Wesley Fofana.

It was only less than six months ago that Soyuncu was being talked about as a potential Manchester…
