Everton vs. West Ham


Back West Ham +0.5 at 1.94 (bet365)

This is more a bet against Everton who are out of sorts at the moment. They’ve lost their last four straight games and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six, with five of their last six opponents scoring more than once. West Ham won this fixture last season and they’ve only lost 1 of their last 7 games, which was a luckless fixture against Crystal Palace. West Ham have gone 5-4-5 as the away underdog over the last 12 months so I’m happy to take them in the Asian Handicap.

Wolverhampton vs. Southampton


Back Wolverhampton in the head-to-head at 1.86 (Betfair)

Wolverhampton looked to have turned a corner after a tough start to the season which has featured dual commitments in the EPL and Europa League. After a 0-4-2 start, Wolverhampton have won their last two games to nil, which includes an away win over Man City. They will have relished the international break and should be fresh for this fixture. Southampton enter this game on a three-game losing streak. They conceded nine goals during those games. Wolverhampton won this fixture 2-0 last season and a similar result wouldn’t surprise me.

Tottenham vs. Watford


Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.47 (Betfair)

Tottenham have been diabolical on the road but over the last 12 months they’ve gone 12-2-4 as the home favourite. Their last two home fixtures saw them beat Crystal Palace and Southampton – two sides who are in much better form than Watford. Tottenham will be fired up for this clash after their away defeat against Brighton prior to the break. Watford are winless in their last 12 EPL fixtures, going 0-4-8 during that stretch. The Hornets have gone three games without scoring.

Bournemouth vs. Norwich


Back Bournemouth in the head-to-head at 1.80 (Betfair)

Bournemouth have found the back of the net in each of their last six home fixtures and they take on a Norwich side that is a defensive shambles as the result of their horrific injury list. The Canaries had ten first team players sidelined in Gameweek 8. Norwich were comfortably beaten to nil in their last two away fixtures against Burnley and Crystal Palace and they slipped five goals in their home fixture against Aston Villa prior to the break. Norwich are 0-0-4 away from home this season. They have conceded 21 EPL goals in 8 games and are ranked dead last in shots conceded, shots on goal conceded, expected goals conceded and actual goals conceded.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool


Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.79 (Betfair)

Man Utd have picked up only 8 points in nine games this season, with their lack of ideas in front of goal costing them. United failed to register a shot on goal against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League and then lost 1-0 away against the unfancied Newcastle prior to the break. Man Utd have failed to score more than one goal in a game since Gameweek 1 and they bring 2-5-6 form into this clash. Liverpool bring a 17-game winning streak into this game. They left it late to defeat the in-form Leicester City prior to the break, but Liverpool only conceded 2 shots and 1 shot on target in that match. Liverpool lead the league for the fewest shots on goal conceded and the fewest goals conceded, which isn’t ideal for United’s stuttering offence. Liverpool don’t have a good recent record at Old Trafford (1-2-6), but I’m prepared to back them given the two sides’ contrasting form.
