It’s gameweek six in the Premier League and we’ve already seen controversy, upsets and thrashings.
There’s no reason to believe that this weekend should be any different, with another round of entertaining fixtures to get stuck into.
Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs will be looking to repeat last year’s feat whereby they took six points off Leicester as they travel to the King Power Stadium for Saturday’s early kick-off.
They are 5/4 favourites to win here, despite being even on points with Leicester going into the game. Again, both sides have won two, drawn two and lost one so far this season, with the visitors sitting two places ahead in third thanks to their superior goal difference.
This is as a result of their confidence-boosting win last weekend, where they turned Crystal Palace over 4-0 inside the opening 45 minutes. Leicester have shipped eight in their last three against Spurs, making a 10/1 2-0 away win an attractive prospect.
It would come as no surprise that the man they need to be wary of is Harry Kane, who has netted seven times in the last five head-to-heads and will be looking to score after failing to get onto the scoresheet against the Eagles last weekend.
The 26-year-old is 7/2 to net first, while Foxes counterpart Jamie Vardy is priced at a potentially lucrative 9/2 in the same market, given that he has scored three in his last three in the Premier League.
Newcastle United v Brighton & Hove Albion
Here is another fixture featuring sides who have had similar starts to their seasons – one win, two draws and two losses apiece puts them both just outside the drop zone.
Newcastle may have pulled off a victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but it still wasn’t much of a shock when they were downed 3-1 at Liverpool last week.
The Magpies have struggled much more on the road of late, but back at St James’ Park they head into the match as 6/4 favourites, I think Brighton have a good chance of taking something from the game.
The Seagulls will be frustrated for throwing away a win in last-gasp style to Burnley in their last game and, given the similar form of both sides, a draw seems a likely outcome and can be backed at 2/1.
Only Crystal Palace have scored fewer goals than Newcastle, while Brighton have only netted one more than this weekend’s hosts.
For this reason, it might not even be a case of a score draw here, so it could be worth putting money on a 0-0 outcome which is available at 13/2.
