Leeds United v Derby (Saturday 12.30pm)- Patrick Bamford (Leeds)
In a repeat of last year’s explosive Championship play-off semi-final, two high-flying teams from last season attempting to replicate that form face off at Elland Road. Derby have really struggled thus far under Phillip Cocu and for that reason, I’m backing Patrick Bamford to open the scoring for table-topping Leeds.
Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur (Saturday 12.30pm) – Heung Min Son (Tottenham)
Spurs will face a quick turn around following their trip to Greece in the Champions League, perhaps making this tie even trickier than it may otherwise have been. Leicester were frustrated at Old Trafford last week, while Tottenham produced their best performance of the season against Crystal Palace. Heung-Min Son was comfortably the best player on the pitch, and don’t be surprised to see him back on the scoresheet again this week.
Burnley v Norwich City (Saturday 3pm) – Teemu Pukki (Norwich)
Daniel Farke’s Norwich picked up what could turn out to be the shock result of the season against Man City last weekend and should truly believe they are capable of beating anyone now. Sean Dyche’s team will try to be much more compact defensively than City, but I’m still confident the Teemu Pukki party will continue on Saturday.
Everton v Sheffield United (Saturday 3pm) – Richarlison (Everton)
Both teams will have mixed feelings about their respective starts to the season and will be keen to get a further three points on the board. VAR denied United their share of the points against Southampton last time out, while Everton were well beaten at Bournemouth. The Toffees are still very reliant on Richarlison for goals, with the talismanic Brazilian backed to open the scoring on Saturday.
Man City v Watford (Saturday 3pm) – Raheem Sterling (Man City)
Pep Guardiola’s side are another who face a quick turn around following their Champions League exploits and will be determined to cut the gap to Liverpool as quickly as possible in the league. Despite Quique Sanchez Flores’ appointment and a fightback against Arsenal, Watford shouldn’t be too much of a challenge for the Champions at home. I’m backing their main-man Raheem Sterling to open the scoring at the Etihad.
Newcastle v Brighton (Saturday 5.30pm) – Neal Maupay (Brighton)
Saturday evening sees two teams already looking prepared to scrap for their Premier League survival this season. Neither Steve Bruce or Graham Potter has quite had the new manager bounce they might have hoped for, sitting 18th and 16th respectively. Neal Maupay has grabbed a couple of goals for his new team and may get a real chance to lead the line at St James’ Park.
Crystal Palace v Wolves (Sunday 2pm) – Patrick Cutrone (Wolves)
Surprisingly, given his performance in the role so far, Nuno Espirito Santo seems to be one of the Premier League managers whose future looks in jeopardy. Sitting inside the bottom three, they’ll be looking to pick up good points, quickly. A win here would take Palace to 10 points from six, representing a strong start from a team who lost their best defender in the summer. Patrick Cutrone has looked impressive in the Europa League and in grabbing his first Premier League goal in the defeat to Chelsea. I fancy him to open the scoring in this one.
West Ham v Man Utd (Sunday 2pm) – Daniel James (Man Utd)
The raised expectations following United’s opening day rout of Chelsea has been brought slowly back down to earth since then. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men scraped past Leicester at the weekend following poor results against Palace and Southampton and sit just inside the top four. West Ham look as though they may be building a team capable of pushing for a European spot if they can keep Sebastian Haller fit and firing. Daniel James has looked like one of few United players capable of scoring from open play and I’m backing him to open the scoring on Sunday.
Arsenal v Aston Villa (Sunday 4pm) – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Villa will be pleased with their defensive showings so far, picking up a couple of clean sheets already, but will need to find the net more regularly if they’re going to avoid being dragged into a relegation dog-fight. Despite widespread criticism for their ‘Sunday league’ performance against Watford, it’s hard to bet against the mercurial Aubameyang opening the scoring at the Emirates.
Chelsea v Liverpool (Sunday 4pm) – Sadio Mane (Liverpool)
The fixture of the weekend comes from Stamford Bridge, with Liverpool the visitors, trying to extend their 100 per cent start to the season. Both will have to overcome difficult results in the Champions League this week if they want to take three crucial points here. Although Tammy Abraham is the in-form striker in the country, Sadio Mane hasn’t had a bad start to the season either. Either could score, but I’m leaning towards Mane to open to scoring.
