West Ham Vs. Tottenham Hotspur (Saturday, 12:30pm)
Jose Mourinho will travel to the London Stadium for his first game as Tottenham manager after a whirlwind 24 hours saw him appointed on Wednesday morning following the sacking of Mauricio Pochetinno.
Just a point separates the teams as they both look to fight their way out of the bottom half of the table. Manuel Pellegrini goes into the game under a fair amount of pressure himself, with West Ham winless in seven games.
The last time these teams met in the Premier League, West Ham beat Spurs 1-0 away from home.
Tanguy Ndombele is set to miss out after picking up a groin injury in the 1-1 draw to Sheffield United. Tottenham are favourites to take all three points at a current price of 19/20.
Arsenal Vs. Southampton (Saturday 3:00pm)
Unai Emery is hoping that his team can pick up a win at home to struggling Southampton to ease the pressure on himself. It’s seemed as if the fans have started to turn on the Spaniard following just one win in the last six in the league. It would seem as if this game has come at the right time, and Arsenal
Having only picked up a point in their last seven games, the Saints desperately need to find their form if they want to move clear of the relegation zone come to the end of the season. St Mary’s has never been an easy place for the Gunners to visit, and the Saints haven’t lost at home in the Premier League to Arsenal since a 2-0 defeat in May 2017.
Bournemouth Vs. Wolves (Saturday 3:00pm)
Both teams sit comfortably in the top half of the table after a good opening 12 games. Wolves are undefeated in their last seven and have already beaten Manchester City and held both Manchester United and Arsenal to draws. Bournemouth got off to a flying start, but their away form has hindered them slightly. Being back at Vicarage Road will be a confidence boost for them.
Brighton Vs. Leicester City ( Saturday 3:00pm)
Leicester City are flying this season, even raising suggestions that the current outfit are better than the Leicester side that won the Premier League in 2015/16. Brendan Rodgers has created a top four contending side and they currently sit deservedly in second place. In their 9-0 dismantling of Southampton, they showed their killer instinct and a 2-0 victory over top-four contenders Arsenal to follow up put yet more doubters to bed.
They look to continue their incredible form travelling to Brighton who are in a comfortable 11th place but remain stiff competition for any side. Leicester are a short price favourite at 27/25,
Crystal Palace Vs. Liverpool ( Saturday 3:00pm)
Undefeated Liverpool travel to London to face 12th place Crystal Palace. Liverpool look unbeatable of late, winning 11 from 12 and drawing the other. Palace have had decent results against the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United but with Zaha usually being marked out of games from the off, have lacked the killer instinct.
It’s hard to see Liverpool losing this fixture and the 21/50 price reflects that. Palace have upset Liverpool in the past, so this won’t be as straight forward as form suggests.
Everton Vs. Norwich ( Saturday 3:00pm)
Everton started this campaign horrifically after such an active summer transfer window but have started to show signs of improvement. Marco Silva is still somewhat under pressure, but performances have undoubtedly improved. They have a great chance to build on their win against Southampton last time out against bottom of the table Norwich.
Norwich, who started fantastically, have fallen off the pace along with a goal drought from striker Teemu Pukki. It had been predicted that if the fine form of Pukki and Todd Cantwell was to falter then so would Norwich’s results. This has been proven to be true, and the Canaries are looking to the pair to regain form soon before it’s too late.
Everton are favourites at 2/5 and need this win to finally put some sort of run together.
Watford Vs. Burnley (Saturday 3:00pm)
Struggling Watford managed their first win of the season last time out, beating Norwich 2-0. They now sit in 18th and will be looking for back to back wins to gain some momentum. They face mid-table Burnley who are infamously hard to break down and are never an easy opponent.
The fixture takes place at Vicarage Road and with the home-field advantage. Watford are 5/4 favourites to take three points. Value is certainly in Burnley at 12/5 and may be seen in a few accas. An all-round solid team with a strike force that is in fine form currently. Watford’s defence has conceded 23 already this season, the third-most in the league and have scored the least goals out of all 20 teams (8 goals).
Manchester City Vs. Chelsea (Saturday 5:30pm)
The reigning Champions host in-form Chelsea in the late kick-off on Saturday. Pep Guardiola has been making headlines through links to jobs elsewhere, but that won’t distract him from getting a vital three points against the Blues. City suffered a massive title blow when they fell even further adrift with a loss to league leaders Liverpool. City have a great record of bouncing back from such defeats and are expected to bring the fight to Chelsea.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have won their last six games and have been in fine form. Tammy Abraham has been staking his claim for both an England start and the Premier League Golden Boot. This fixture really could go either way, but the market suggests that City are strong favourites priced at 2/5 and Chelsea sitting at 13/2.
Sheffield United Vs. Manchester United (Sunday 4.30pm)
Sheffield United have been the surprise package this season. Having been favourites to go down by the end of the campaign, they’ve taken points off both Tottenham and Arsenal as well as being undefeated in their last five Premier League games. The blades boast one of the best defences in the league having only conceded nine goals so far.
United have had a torrid start to the season so far and currently sit in the bottom half. The two shining lights of their season has been wonder signing Daniel James and red-hot Marcus Rashford. The latter has scored six goals in 12 games.
Aston Villa Vs. Newcastle (Monday 8.00PM)
Newcastle have been dealt a huge blow with the loss of Jamal Lascelles to a serious injury. The Magpies’ skipper was substituted in the first half during their 1-0 victory over Bournemouth and ultimately left the ground on crutches. The good news for Newcastle is that manager Steve Bruce has plenty of options with Ciaran Clarke, Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez available for selection as well as Florian Lejeune and Fabian Shar set to return from injury.
Aston Villa are three points clear of the relegation zone following a mixed bag of results. They haven’t lost in their last three premier league games and will look to continue their current form in this fixture. The game may be key in a future relegation battle nearer the end of the season so will be a must-win for both teams.
Despite being five points behind Newcastle in the table, Aston Villa are firm favourites at 11/10.
