Week 3 of the Premier League brings us 10 more top-flight matches and Matt Le Tissier provides his thoughts as well as his selections for this weekend’s games.
Matt’s NAP of the week came in last week so be sure to follow his selections over this weekend.
Brighton at home to Man Utd will be an interesting match given how United started against Palace and how impressive Brighton were last week. Brighton have won this fixture two of the last three times and I’d be tempted to back Brighton with a ‘Draw No Bet’.
Crystal Palace v Everton is another tricky fixture and I’d be tempted to forget about the final result and look at either Under 2.5 or Under 1.5 goals. In the last seven years, there have been four 0-0 and two 1-0 results when Everton have travelled to Palace and so it’s generally a match which doesn’t produce a lot of goals. A cagey affair looks likely in this one.
West Brom have had a tough start but they weren’t too bad for an hour against Leicester last weekend. I’d expect Chelsea to win on Saturday but maybe only by a goal so probably a match to avoid.
I never look forward to travelling to Burnley as a Saints fan. We don’t have a good record there and this fixture usually doesn’t produce many goals. Although my heart tells me something different, I’d be looking at Burnley to win and under 2.5 goals from a betting perspective.
The Yorkshire derby between Sheff Utd and Leeds should be a cracker and I think these two sides could cancel each other out on Sunday. I’d go for a score draw here.
Tottenham v Newcastle should be an interesting one. With the travelling Spurs have done over the last week or so with Europa League qualifying matches, we’ll have to see how many changes Mourinho makes to his team. I think this will be a tough match and if it’s not a draw, I think Spurs will only win by the odd goal. Another one to probably leave alone from a betting perspective.
City were pretty impressive against Wolves and looked really sharp given it was their opening game. Although Leicester have started well, I don’t see them troubling City at the Etihad. Man City -1 could be a good bet.
West Ham v Wolves would be my NAP this week. Wolves have won all four games against West Ham since they were promoted back to the Premier League and I fancy them to make it five on Sunday. West Ham also haven’t scored a goal in this fixture throughout those four games. At just over evens for Wolves to win, it has value. If you’re looking for a bit bigger odds, a Wolves win to nil is available at around 5/2.
From what I’ve seen so far from Fulham, I don’t see them winning too many games this season. Despite getting three against Leeds last weekend, I’m not convinced that they have enough about them to challenge staying in the Premier League. Villa have bought well and I fancy them for the win on Monday.
Although Arsenal have had a decent start to the season, I think Liverpool will have too much for them. Arsenals record at Anfield is abysmal and I can’t see them changing that on Monday. I wasn’t convinced with them against West Ham who were unlucky not to get something out of the game. Either Liverpool win or Liverpool -1 would be my pick.
