Liverpool Vs Newcastle (Saturday 12.30pm)- Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)
Liverpool remain the only Premier League team with their 100 per cent record intact and Jurgen Klopp will be expecting another strong performance in this one. Newcastle have just one win so far this campaign, although that did come against ‘big six’ opposition in Tottenham. Liverpool’s front three are once again establishing their status at the world’s top trio, and Firmino, in particular, has looked electric. He’s backed to get his third of the season in this one.
Manchester United Vs Leicester City (Saturday 3pm) – Youri Tielemans (Leicester City)
Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester have made an excellent start to the season and sit deservedly in third place. Their midfield three of Wilfred Ndidi, Tielemans and James Maddison has the potential to be one of the strongest in the league and should help create plenty of chances for the rejuvenated Jamie Vardy. The signing of Harry Maguire hasn’t yet had the stabilising effect on United’s defence hoped for by the Old Trafford faithful. They’ve kept just one clean sheet so far, and we’re backing Leicester to breach their defence here, with Tielemans grabbing a goal.
Sheffield United Vs Southampton (Saturday 3pm) – Oli McBurnie (Sheffield United)
Both sides would feel a lot more positive about their starts if they could come away from this one with a win. Chris Wilder’s home side got a memorable point at Stamford Bridge last time out and should still be riding that promotion wave. Southampton will be desperate to establish a gap between themselves and the bottom three as they hope to avoid another season looking down instead of up. Record signing Oli McBurnie gets into good positions. He got off the mark for Sheffield United against Leicester in August and could grab another here.
Brighton Vs Burnley (Saturday 3pm) – Shane Duffy (Brighton)
After a stunning opening day win, Brighton’s revolution under Graham Potter has stalled somewhat in proceeding games. They have an opportunity to reignite their campaign in front of their own fans here. Burnley too are in a similar position, taking just one point following their opening day win. Ashley Barnes is pushing for an England call with his form and could be the catalyst to their survival. We’re backing one of the defenders, Shane Duffy to grab a goal here.
Wolves Vs Chelsea (Saturday 3pm) – Tammy Abraham (Chelsea)
Frank Lampard’s start to life as Chelsea manager doesn’t get any easier with a trip to Wolves. They’ve dropped points against Man United, Leicester and Sheffield United already this season, and have another stern test here. Wolves are hovering above the relegation places at the moment, and are just waiting for a spark to get their campaign going. However, with four goals in his last two games, Tammy Abraham is our pick at Molineux.
Tottenham Vs Crystal Palace (Saturday 3pm) – Heung-Min Son (Tottenham)
Few people would have expected to see the visitors and not the home side in the top four before this game. Roy Hodgson will be delighted with the start his team have made and will be desperate to keep their momentum going. Spurs, on the other hand, haven’t clicked yet and need a good performance here. With 12 goals in both of his last two seasons, we’re backing Heung-Min Son to open the scoring at the New White Hart Lane.
Norwich City Vs Manchester City (Saturday 5.30pm) – Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
Although Norwich have proven, particularly through Teemu Pukki, that they have goals, they’ll need to be sterner defensively if they want to survive. Having conceded 10 goals already, Man City will be the last thing Daniel Farke wants. City have already scored 14 goals this term, and Raheem Sterling will be expected to add to his five goals so far.
Bournemouth Vs Everton (Sunday 2pm) – Harry Wilson (Bournemouth)
Despite sitting in 15th at this stage, Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth don’t feel like relegation contenders and should have the squad to have a much better season than that. A winnable home fixture against Everton presents an opportunity to put a run of results together, with fixtures against Southampton and West Ham to come next. Everton will hope their new signings being filtered into the side will allow them to build on their impressive start. We’re backing Bournemouth’s August player of the month to get his third goal for the Cherries.
Watford Vs Arsenal (Sunday 4.30pm) – Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal)
Few can deny that Unai Emery’s side are in a better position than immediately following Arsene Wenger’s exit. After a decent summer in the transfer market, the Gunners look genuine top-four contenders once again. Watford, meanwhile, sit at the bottom and have replaced Javi Gracia with former manager Quique Sanchez Flores. He’ll be hoping, we suspect in vain, to get off to the best possible start on Super Sunday. We’re backing Alexandre Lacazette to pick up a goal here.
Aston Villa Vs West Ham (Monday 8pm) – Wesley (Aston Villa)
The atmosphere should be electric under the lights at Villa Park on Monday night, with Villa after a result that will take them out of the relegation zone. Both teams have new strikers settling into the Premier League. Sebastian Haller has already hit the net three times for the Hammers, but we’re backing Wesley to score his second of the season for Villa.
