Saturday 4th October
15:00 – Hull City v Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace look more potent this season going forward compared to last year, albeit conceding more goals as well. Hull also look to have attacking options but lacking defensively too. Hull city haven’t won in their last 5 games and have had over 3.5 goals in each of their last 4 games. Although Crystal Palace are picking up points, they are also leaking goals with 3 of their last 5 games also having over 3.5 goals. Recent stats and current team balance would suggest this match will be a lot more open and exciting compared to previous seasons.
Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @ 23/20
15:00 – Leicester v Burnley
Burnley have really struggled so far with just 1 goal in 6 games. Whilst Leicester showed how they can exploit space in behind against Manchester United, it will be a different game between these two. Burnley will make it very compact especially after conceding 4 to West Brom. We expect this one to be tight a low scoring match, possibly deciding by a set piece or two. Watch out for in-form striker Ulloa.
Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 9/10
15:00 – Liverpool v West Brom
West Brom are on a run of 3 straight wins after an awful start to the season whilst Liverpool will be looking to regain their form. An away trip to Basel which ended in a loss on Wednesday will not help fatigue or moral. Gerrard and Sterling played the full 90 minutes and with only 2 full days rest this will negatively affect Liverpool. Daniel Sturridge is still a doubt which gives West Brom probably the best opportunity they could have to grab a point at Anfield. We’re expecting a less than intense game, ending in a draw.
Tip: Both Teams to Score: YES @ 5/6
15:00 – Sunderland v Stoke City
Stoke City have started the season well, not losing in their last 4 away games. Sunderland have shown they can keep games relatively tight but lack real quality up top. Even when Sunderland do grab a goal it seems to be a midfielder this season. Once again we expect another tight match where Stoke will probably be happy to settle for a point away from home.
Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 3/5
15:00 – Swansea v Newcastle Utd
Alan Pardew will be desperate to relieve some pressure temporarily with a win on Saturday but know they face a very strong side away to Swansea. With a Newcastle side clearly unbalanced and lacking chemistry we can only see Swansea improving their formidable home record this season. Swansea have won to nil in Newcastle’s last 2 visits to the Liberty Stadium.
Tip: Home Win @ 20/23
17:30 – Aston Villa v Manchester City
Recent meetings between these two have thrown up goals galore with over 3.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 meetings. Aston Villa know they will have to score a couple of goals to get anything from this game whilst City have conceded in 4 of their last 5 away games. We expect Aston Villa to put out a good performance but City have cutting edge where it matters and will outscore Villa.
Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 2/1
Sunday 5th October
12:00 Manchester United v Everton
United will know this is one of the most important games of the season with 9 players still out injured, getting through here with a win will leave 2 weeks during the international break for their squad to recover and get back to normal. Blackett returning will be a boost defensively but with Phil Jones still out, Paddy Mcnair is also set to keep his place. Everton have been in indifferent form in the Premier League this season only winning 1 out of 6 and travelling to Russia on Thursday for their Europa League clash really won’t help things. We expect Man United to take a one or two goal lead and Van Gaal to learn from his mistakes and shut this one out.
Tip: Home Win @ 3/4
14:05 Chelsea v Arsenal
With both teams having plenty of rest and no new injuries we expect this to be an intense match. In-form Welbeck will take great confidence into this match coming off the back of a Champions League hat-trick. Diego Costa will be looking to take advantage of a far from perfect defence, Arsenal having conceding in 6 of their last 7 matches. We don’t expect either team to keep a clean sheet but think it will either be a Chelsea win or draw. 2-2 or 2-1 and we’re going for 2-1.
Tip: Both Teams to Score: YES @ 4/5
14:05 Tottenham v Southampton
This match could be one of the thrillers of the week with ex-manager Pochettino facing his old side for the first time. Tottenham do feature in the Europa League but are at home and this helps it being a lot less disruptive. Southampton come into this match in great form having won 10 of their last 11 away games (including friendlies). With both teams attacking full backs getting forward we expect space opening up in vulnerable areas. This will be an intense open match and previous results suggest high goals with 10 goals in their last 2 meetings.
Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 5/2
16:15 West Ham v QPR
QPR come into this match with an awful away record having lost all 4 away games this season. West Ham will be feeling confident with their new look attack of Sakho and Valencia who have shown how clinical they can be. QPR need to start picking up points but we don’t think the trend is going to change just yet, we expect a close match with West Ham edging it by a goal.
Tip: Home Win @ 19/20
