Southampton vs. Bournemouth


Back Southampton +0.5 at 1.33 (Betfair)

Southampton have gone 2-5-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months and 2-2-0 at home against Bournemouth since the Cherries were promoted. Southampton have looked decent since their disappointing opening round defeat. They made Liverpool work hard for their win in Gameweek 2 and have since gone undefeated. Bournemouth have gone 3-1-10 as the away underdog over the last 12 months.

Leicester City vs. Tottenham


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 2.37 (Sportsbet)

Tottenham put in their best performance of the season last week when they defeated Crystal Palace 4-0. The Spurs have had an unsettled squad at the start of the season, with Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld all stronglyg linked with moves abroad. The European transfer window has since closed so the squad can now focus again on football. Leicester City have gone 1-0-2 as the home underdog over the last 12 months while Tottenham have gone 9-0-4 as the away favourite. Since promotion Leicester City have gone 1-1-3 at home against Tottenham.

Manchester City vs. Watford


Back Man City -1.5 at 1.37 (Betfair)

Manchester City put in a poor defensive performance last week and were upset 3-2 by Norwich at Carrow Road. I’m expecting a strong reaction from Pep Guardiola’s men this week. Man City have gone 16-1-1 at home over the last 12 months with 12 of those wins coming by 2+ goal margins. Since promotion Watford have gone 0-0-4 at Etihad Stadium with all four defeats coming by 2-goal margins. Watford did draw Arsenal 2-2 in Quique Sanchez Flores’s first game back in charge, but Arsenal were dreadful in the second half of that match after jumping out to a 2-0 lead. Watford have gone 0-3-6 in their last nine EPL games. They were crushed 6-0 by Man City in the FA Cup final last season, which was the last time the two sides met.

Back the Man City 3-1 Watford correct score at 10.50 (Unibet)

All four of Man City’s home wins over Watford have been by two-goal margins, with the last two wins coming by 3-1 scorelines. With Aymeric Laporte out injured Man City are less likely to keep a clean sheet and Watford’s most recent defeat was by a 3-1 margin. In three of Watford’s last five defeats the opposition scored three goals.

Everton vs. Sheffield United


Back Everton in the head-to-head at 1.71 (Betfair) – BEST BET

While Everton are notoriously inconsistent, their strong performances tend to come at home and their poor ones on the road. The Toffees bring a six-game home winning streak into this clash. At Goodison Park they have gone 8-2-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months. Everton have kept a clean sheet in six of their last seven home fixtures. Sheffield United have yet to win away from home this season.

Newcastle vs. Brighton


Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.61 (bet365)

Newcastle have failed to score more than one goal in a game this season while Brighton haven’t managed more than one since Gameweek 1. All four previous meetings between the two went under 2.5 goals, with three going under 1.5 goals.

Arsenal vs. Aston Villa


Back Arsenal in the head-to-head at 1.38 (Unibet)
Back Arsenal -1.5 at 2.07 (bet365)

Arsenal have gone 14-4-1 at home over the last 12 months while Aston Villa have gone 0-0-2 away from home so far this season. Eleven of Arsenal’s 14 home wins were by 2+ goals. Aston Villa have failed to score a goal in their last two games.

Chelsea vs. Liverpool


Back Liverpool in the heed-to-head at 2.00 (bet365, Unibet)
Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.58 (TopBetta, Unibet)

Featuring a young squad, Chelsea have made a bright start in front of goal this season, but defensively they are a worry. The Blues are still searching for their first clean sheet of the season and they have the second worst defensive record in the Premier League, with eleven goals conceded in five games. Liverpool bring a 14-game winning streak into this clash. They have gone 12-5-0 as the away favourite over the last 12 months. Chelsea’s defensive woes combined with theirs and Liverpool’s strong goal scoring forms should result in a high scoring game.
