Premier League 2023-24 – Saturday 2nd March Matches Tips, TV and Betting Preview

Another big set of matches in the Premier League gets underway on Saturday when we have seven fixtures on the card on a day where the top of the table and the bottom end of it looks like it will be significantly impacted.

Usually we would have two TV matches to enjoy in the UK on a Saturday but that isn’t the case this time around as there is no early kick off so it is one TV game and then the usual updates in the normal places for the others.

Saturday’s fixtures are as follows: (3pm unless stated; UK TV in brackets)

Brentford v Chelsea

Everton v West Ham United

Fulham v Brighton & Hove Albion

Newcastle United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Nottingham Forest v Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace

Luton Town v Aston Villa (5.30pm – Sky Main Event & Sky Premier League)

The TV cameras will head to Kenilworth Road for the later kick off as Luton Town look to close the gap on the teams above them when Champions League chasing Aston Villa are the visitors to Bedfordshire. Before that match takes place there is another match on the card which will impact both ends of the table as Liverpool look to pull clear at the top of the league when they make the trip to the City Ground to take on a Nottingham Forest side who now have no team between them and the relegation zone after Everton received their four points back last week.

Two sides who are certainly not clear of the relegation picture are Everton and Brentford and they both have home assignments on Saturday. The Toffees host West Ham while Brentford welcome fellow West London outfit Chelsea to the Gtech. That leaves us with three other matches where Fulham take on Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United go up against Wolverhampton Wanderers and there is another London derby when Tottenham Hotspur come up against Crystal Palace.


Given that the dynamics have changed at the bottom of the table in light of that Everton news, I’m largely going to take a watching brief on the Saturday card but one thing which that reduced deduction will do is it will force Luton Town into looking to win more games and being even more forceful in their approach, especially in home matches, and that has to start when they host a dangerous Aston Villa side in the later kick off.

Luton manager Rob Edwards eluded to that fact earlier in the week when he said his side aren’t going to change and this is a team who have conceded 19 goals in their last five outings but registered in their last 15 matches against Premier League opposition. Aston Villa had a bit of a wobble last month but have scored five at Sheffield United and four against Nottingham Forest last week so when they get perfect dance partners they can score goals too. Both Burnley and Forest have scored twice against Villa recently though and Villa are vulnerable from set plays which is a particular strength of Luton. However this one ends it just screams goals.
