After all eight of Matt’s tips came in last week, we’re hoping for more successful selections from Matt for Matchday 8 fixtures with Brighton Burnley kicking things off at 17:30 on Friday.
This week, WhichBookie football analyst Matt Le Tissier has picked an all-London treble along with a tasty double at just under 11/2 and a 6/4 NAP.
Brighton v Burnley is an interesting one. I couldn’t back Brighton at a fraction under odds-on with the form that they’re in even though Burnley aren’t exactly in great form either. If I had to choose a match result, I’d go for the draw but this is game where I’d probably back Under 2.5 goals.
Southampton v Newcastle – It’s a blow for Southampton that Danny Ings isn’t available and I’d suspect his absence will give Newcastle a bit of a lift. Newcastle are unbeaten away from home this season and at a fraction under odds-on for a home win, it doesn’t fill me with confidence to back my team to win this match tonight.
I like Newcastle Double Chance (to win or draw) bets as they’re always in games. They’re solid and difficult to beat and so it’s not a game I would put in any of my Accas this week. I’d like to see how Southampton cope without Danny Ings first before sticking my neck on the line with a Southampton win.

Everton v Man Utd is another interesting game given the midweek result for United (2-1 loss to Basaksehir in the Champions League) and Everton’s two defeats on the spin after such a great start. Lucas Digne is available after having his red card suspension reduced to just one game which is good news for Everton.
United weren’t particularly impressive in midweek but given their away form recently and Everton still missing Richarlison and Rodriguez, I’d probably still side with United in this match.
You can back United to win at 7/5 with Bet365.
The Crystal Palace v Leeds match will feature my NAP this week. I think Leeds are way overpriced at 6/4 and they’re probably better suited playing away than they are at home currently. They put in a cracking performance against Liverpool followed by a 1-0 victory against Sheff Utd and a 3-0 win away to Villa who were unbeaten at the time.
Leeds to beat Palace will be my NAP this week.

I’ll be putting Chelsea to beat Sheff Utd in my treble this week. They’re in pretty good form currently with a lot of clean sheets and can see them winning on Saturday.
I was expecting West Ham to be a lot shorter than 4/5 to beat Fulham at the weekend. West Ham have been in good form recently and even in their defeat to Liverpool, they gave them a good run for their money and they could have gotten something out of that game had Antonio had been fit. That match was followed up with draws against Man City & Spurs and so I’ll be including West Ham as part of my double this week.
Tottenham to beat West Brom will be part of my all-London treble this week. I just don’t see West Brom having enough to trouble Spurs. They gave Chelsea a good game at home but couldn’t beat Burnley so I fancy a Tottenham win and may even suggest Spur to win to nil if you wanted to give the odds a bit of a boost.
I’m struggling to pick a winner for the Leicester v Wolves game. Leicester are in very good form but so are Wolves and they don’t concede a lot of goals. If I had to pick a result, I’d go for the draw but I’m not confident on making any selections for this match.
I think Liverpool are overpriced against Man City on Sunday. City are a good team but just under 5/2 is too tempting for a Liverpool win. They’ve only had the one aberration against Aston Villa this season and everything else has been spot on and they’ve had three wins from three in the Champions League without conceding a goal.
I’ll be putting Liverpool in my double with West Ham.

Arsenal to beat Villa will be the final selection in my treble. I think Aston Villa have just started to stumble a little bit and Arsenal had a fantastic win against United last week as well as a win in Europe midweek. Villa have conceded seven goals in their last two games and Arsenal should be able to take advantage of that.
