It’s the final weekend of Premier League fixtures ahead of the international break and sides will be looking to end the first run of matches on a positive note.
Going into game week four only Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea and Watford have 100 per cent winning records, while West Ham remain rooted to the bottom after three successive defeats and they are the only side yet to pick up a point.
Our football expert runs through the best Premier League bets ahead of the action.
Leicester City v Liverpool
Leicester are the side charged with trying to break Liverpool’s winning run in tomorrow’s early kick-off.
The Foxes head into the game still without the services of Jamie Vardy who serves the final game of a three-match suspension for his sending off against Wolves, and that will be a big loss for Claude Puel’s side who are 13/2 to win.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges have looked impressive and are yet to concede this term whilst also netting seven. Mo Salah hasn’t lost his golden touch either with two goals in three games and it’s hard to see the Foxes thwarting the Reds tomorrow, who are 2/5 to win at the King Power Stadium.
That’s too short for me so I would go with a Liverpool win to nil which can be backed at 5/4.
Brighton v Fulham
Fulham turned on the style to win 4-2 last weekend against Burnley to notch their first Premier League win of the season, and head to Brighton looking to build on that.
Many predicted Brighton to struggle this season, but they pulled off a shock 3-2 win over Man United, though that does remain their only points of the campaign so far.
They only lost 1-0 at Liverpool last weekend but rarely troubled the hosts and it’s games like these that both sides need to win to aid their bid for Premier League survival.
I can see this being a close encounter and many would edge towards a draw, which can be backed at 9/4, however, I fancy Slavisa Jokanovic’s side to sneak an away win which is also 9/4.
Burnley v Manchester United
The statistics for Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United are horrific this season with the Red Devils suffering their worst start to a Premier League season in 26 years, with just three points from as many games.
A shock 3-2 loss at Brighton was followed by a 3-0 home defeat to Spurs and the pressure is on to get back to winning ways.
Burnley’s Europa League exploits mean they have already played nine games this season and drew 1-1 last night against Olympiakos which saw them exit the competition.
That could well work in United’s favour, but with their tendency to struggle of late I will back the draw on Sunday at 11/4.
