English Premier League: Gameweek 6 Preview



Advantage Liverpool. Last weekend produced more excitement, more joy, and of course, more upsets, which saw Manchester City suffer their first defeat of the campaign, losing to Norwich last Saturday. Arsenal also suffered another setback, surrendering a two-goal lead at Watford to draw the game 2-2. Elsewhere, it was smooth sailing for the Premier League’s big guns with Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea all claiming maximum points. Teams are much more settled now after the international break, so hopefully it will be easier to find those winning markets!

Friday 20 September

Southampton 21/20 
Draw 26/10 
Bournemouth 5/2 
(21:00)

Premier League football begins at St. Mary’s Stadium this weekend as Southampton lock horns with Bournemouth on Friday night. Both sides are level on seven points and come off the back of impressive victories with the Saints winning at Sheffield United, while Bournemouth beat Everton at home. Southampton are yet to win at home in their opening two games, although, their opposition was Liverpool and Manchester United, who they got a point off in their last encounter at St. Mary’s. The home win offers a decent amount of value at 21/20, get on!

Saturday 21 September

Leicester City 21/10 
Draw 49/20 
Tottenham 13/10 
(13:30)

Apart from Chelsea’s clash against Liverpool, this game is undoubtedly the biggest blockbuster of the weekend in the Premier League. Leicester City were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Manchester United, while Tottenham were rampant in their London derby, smashing Crystal Palace 4-0. Spurs haven’t won away from home in the league since January, although, this season, they did collect draws at both Manchester City and Arsenal. Leicester have been exceptional at the King Power Stadium since Brendan Rodgers took over and have not lost in four league matches, dating back to last season. It may seem like the worst time to back against Spurs, but I’d put my money on the Home/Draw Double Chance & Both Teams to Score at 15/10.

Manchester City 1/8 
Draw 17/2 
Watford 18/1 
(16:00)

Watford face the dubious task of being on the wrong end of a football massacre as Manchester City seek a return to winning ways after losing 3-2 to newly-promoted Norwich City. Pep Guardiola opted to rotate some of his key players after they had returned from the international break, while the thought of UEFA Champions League football must have played on the mind of the Spaniard as well. Watford were excellent in Quique Sanchez Flores’ first game back in charge, coming from two goals down to hold Arsenal to a draw at Vicarage Road. With City’s defence leaving plenty of spaces open, you wouldn’t put it past the Hornets finding the back of the net. However, there’s only one winner here. Take Man City to Win & Both Teams to Score at 12/10.

Burnley 19/20 
Draw 11/4 
Norwich 11/4 
(16:00)

Burnley remain without a win in the league since the opening gameweek, recently pulling back to score late and earn a share of the spoils at Brighton. Norwich, on the other hand, pulled off the upset of the season, deservedly beating champions, Manchester City, 3-2. Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki stole the show, as have they’ve done throughout this campaign. It remains to be seen whether the Canaries burnt themselves out and gave too much last weekend, perhaps Burnley can take advantage of their tired legs? Who knows? I’d certainly have a punt on it. Burnley smashed Southampton 3-0 at home on the opening weekend and lost to Liverpool in their only other home tie. Sean Dyche’s men should return to winning ways just under even money.

Everton 7/10 
Draw 26/10 
Sheffield United 17/4 
(16:00)

On paper, this seems like the ultimate banker. Quite frankly, it should be. Much talk was spoken of Everton gate-crashing into the top six this season, not because of their manager or the quality they possess, but because of their superb home form. The Toffees last lost a game at Goodison Park back in February, to Manchester City, going through a seven-match unbeaten run, failing only to beat Liverpool in a goalless draw. In fact, Everton beat Wolves 3-2 in their last encounter at home, which was the first time they had conceded at Goodison since the Man City game. Sheffield United are winless on the road, but did get impressive draws at Bournemouth and Chelsea. Still, the home win should be included in all multiples here at 7/10.

Newcastle 31/20 
Draw 21/10 
Brighton 2/1 
(18:30)

Saturday’s action concludes with Newcastle and Brighton doing battle at St. James’ Park in the late kick-off. The hosts come off a 3-1 defeat to log-leaders, Liverpool, while Brighton led against Burnley until stoppage time, only to surrender their lead and take a share of the spoils. Newcastle showed a bit of promise and some glimpses that they’re capable of surviving after much was said about their off-field issues. Brighton will definitely give Newcastle a game here, but not enough to walk away with maximum points. Back these sides to cancel each other out at 21/10.

Sunday 22 September

Crystal Palace 2/1 
Draw 2/1 
Wolves 31/20 
(15:00)

Crystal Palace need to bounce back quickly and remind themselves of how good they really can be on their day. The Eagles were battered and bruised against Spurs last time out, losing 4-0 in a nightmare affair against their local rivals. Wolves were trounced 5-2 at home to Chelsea last weekend and remain without a victory this term. To make matters worse, they’ll play this tie off the back of Thursday night football in the UEFA Europa League, where they face Portuguese side, Braga. Wolves’ squad is way too small to compete competitively in two competitions, hence why they could be there for the taking this weekend. Put your money on Palace to Win or Draw & Both Teams to Score at 7/4.

West Ham 51/20 
Draw 11/4 
Manchester United 1/1 
(15:00)

West Ham come into this game on a decent note, enduring a four-match unbeaten run since their opening day defeat. The Hammers’ recent result against Aston Villa means that its now three clean sheets in a row across all competitions for Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Manchester United edged past Leicester City last time out, courtesy of a Marcus Rashford penalty. For the fourth game running, United have scored just one goal in a match. The Red Devils should welcome back Paul Pogba for this tie; however, it may not be enough to guarantee a goal fest at the London Stadium. Put your money on Under 2.5 Goals at a valuable 12/10.

Chelsea 51/20 
Draw 28/10 
Liverpool 1/1 
(17:30)

Arsenal 7/20 
Draw 17/4 
Aston Villa 13/2 
(17:30)

Arsenal need to return to winning ways to kick on after letting a two-goal lead slip at Watford to draw 2-2. The Gunners looked shaky and spineless, giving the bottom team in the league 31 attempts at goal. Aston Villa, after their goalless draw on Monday night, have failed to score in two meetings. They’re also winless on the road in two games. Arsenal have a UEFA Europa League tie to attend to on Thursday, but should rest a few of their key individuals. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has kept up his scoring antics despite the absence of Alexandre Lacazette. Back Arsenal to Score In Both Halves at 9/10.

TREBLE @ 13/2
Southampton Win 21/20
Everton Win 7/10
West Ham vs Man United Under 2.5 Goals 12/10
