It’s back! It’s back! Everyone, the Premier League has returned!!
I’m not going to waste any time, lets just get into this ASAP!
Tottenham v Liverpool
Wembley Stadium is where it all goes down, Spurs welcome Liverpool in the flagship game of the weekend. Spurs will look to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat to Watford, whilst the Reds will look to regain momentum after the international break and continue their fine run of form.
Spurs will pose a tough threat, but I can’t see them beating Liverpool. I expect a close game, but I’m going for a Liverpool/Draw + Both teams to score @ 11/10.
Bournemouth v Leicester
The Cherries made a flying start to the season and will make this a tough game for the Foxes. They haven’t lost in front of their home faithful – and I’m not sure that’s about to change.
Leicester haven’t been poor themselves, but I get the feeling they’ll be content with a point at the Vitality. Nevertheless, I’m going to back both teams to score @ 13/20.
Chelsea v Cardiff
Chelsea will look to keep their 100% record intact when they welcome Cardiff City to the Bridge. Maurizio Sarri has been impressive in his short stint in England, given Chelsea’s attack and the fact that Cardiff look uncomfortable in front of goal, and I’m backing an easy Chelsea win. Get on Chelsea (-1) handicap @ 5/10.
Huddersfield v C Palace
Huddersfield Town will be aiming to record their first win of the campaign when they face Palace at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Huddersfield haven’t been great but look to be improving with each and every game, no doubt they will want to put in a good shift at home this weekend. Palace has flattered to deceive thus far. They tripped up against Southampton and just look flat.
Huddersfield to win simply because they want it more, get on @ 22/10.
Manchester City v Fulham
City hasn’t looked the ‘invincible’ side everyone makes them out to be. They survived the game against Newcastle and will look to win this game to ensure they themselves don’t lose too much ground with the leading pack.
Fulham comes into the league with the goal of surviving, that being said they won’t look to win games like this – which in fact might make them more dangerous as they have nothing to lose.
City will no doubt be short favourites, so I’m going to back over 3.5 goals @ 13/20.
Newcastle v Arsenal
This could be the most entertaining game of the weekend, and possibly even the banana skin game for the Gunners. Newcastle frustrated City last time out and I expect them to employ the same tactics against Arsenal. Arsenal don’t have the attacking threat all over the pitch that City has, which increases Newcastle’s chancers of taking something away from this game.
A lively contest is expected up on Tyne, and I’m going to back Newcastle/Draw + Both teams to score @ 7/4.
Watford v Manchester United
The Hornets have made a stunning start to the season; recording victory’s in each of their opening four league fixtures is an incredible achievement. They must be brimming with confidence and would love to give their supporters another reason to celebrate.
United regained a much-needed confidence booster thanks to a 2-0 win at Burnley courtesy of a Lukaku brace. Watford are a tough side to breakdown at home – even when they aren’t playing as well as they have been – so I’m going to back a draw @ 5/2.
Wolves v Burnley
If Wolves wants to remain in the League they would need to be at their very best in every game. Ruben Neves has been a revelation and is a man to watch come Sunday.
Burnley don’t look anywhere near the side they were last season and given their confidence being at an all time low, I can’t see past a home win here. Get on @ 15/20.
Everton v West Ham
Everton have been putting in impressive performances this season. Of course the loss of Richarlison to a ban is a big blow, but Marco Silva has a plethora of talent – capable of beating West Ham – at his disposal.
West Ham made a slow start to the season, they are yet to register a win this season and the mood surrounding the club is just so negative.
Everton win @ 21/20 – simple as that.
Southampton v Brighton
Southampton will look to build on their (rather shock) win against Palace, and knowing a win on Sunday will propel them into the top half of the table, the Saints will be up for it.
Brighton have had an up and down start to the season but they seem to produce better performances at home than on the road. In the last three meetings between these sides in all competitions have produced less than three goals so backing the hosts and under 2.5 @ 39/20 could be a sneaky bet with great value.
