Premier League Saturday Fixtures
The big fixture in the Premier League takes place at Stamford Bridge this weekend, as two of the title favorites clash. The Blues have won each of their last three games against the Citizens, but City have came out on top in their last three visits to the Bridge. There hasn’t been a draw in the previous 12 league meetings, but we could see the Blues putting down a huge marker for the season ahead with a win.
- Pick: Chelsea at +165
Another early kick off in the Premier League comes from Old Trafford. United will be looking for a fourth straight league win, and have won 18 of their last 21 games against the Villa at the Theatre of Dreams. Villa’s record doesn’t give them much hope this weekend, as they have beaten United on just one occasion in 45 fixtures.
- Pick: Manchester United at -250
Leicester have lost their last two league games, but are unbeaten against Burnley in ten fixtures at the King Power. However, the Clarets are struggling at present and have dropped eight points from winning positions. Another defeat could be a decent pick here.
- Pick: Leicester City at -189
Everton’s unbeaten start to the new season came to an end last weekend with defeat against Aston Villa. Meanwhile, the Canaries are still looking for their first win this term. The Toffees have an excellent record against Norwich, winning four of their last seven against the Canaries at Goodison.
- Pick: Everton at -175
West Ham’s strong start to the season has come to an end over recent weeks, as they haven’t won in two. Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds are yet to win a game so far this term. The Hammers beat Leeds 2-1 last season, but the Whites have never lost two straight games against West Ham. A score draw could be a likely result.
- Pick: 1-1 at +650
There will be a huge game at Vicarage Road for Newcastle on Saturday. Pressure on Steve Bruce is mounting, and it doesn’t help their case that they won just once in nine league away games. Watford have an impressive home record, winning 13 of their last 15.
- Pick: Watford at +135
Liverpool are yet to lose in the league this season and have scored at least four times in their last three games against Bretford. The Bees are enjoying a fine start to the campaign, with Ivan Toney hoping to score more goals, but it looks a struggle to see them claiming victory against a Reds side that rarely loses to newly-promoted sides.
- Pick: Liverpool at -222
Premier League Sunday & Monday Fixtures
Defeat for either Southampton or Wolves this weekend will see them slip nearer to the relegation places. The wolves were handsomely beaten last weekend, while the Saints gained a credible 0-0 draw against Manchester City. It could be a first win of the season this weekend for the hosts.
- Pick: Southampton at +155
Nuno Espirito Santo’s first North London derby as Spurs manager comes at a terrible time. Tottenham have lost their last two, conceding three goals in both losses. Arsenal have turned a slight corner with wins over Norwich City and Burnley, and the pressure on Mikel Arteta could be eased with a win over their local rivals.
- Pick: Arsenal at +135
The Premier League weekend rounds off the action on Monday with the derby between Palace and Brighton. Palace have picked up five points so far this term, but Brighton are the in-form team, currently sitting fourth, and we could see them claiming a comfortable win at Selhurst Park.
- Pick: Brighton at +150
