Saturday’s four Premier League fixtures offer the opportunity to cash in on early season impressions in the top flight.
Everton vs West Brom
Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton were impressive in their win over Spurs in the opening week. Not only for the fact that they ended up with all three points but more so, in how they negated their much-fancied opposition’s star-studded attack. West Brom, who were brushed aside in week 1 by Leicester City, have endured a rough time when coming up against the Toffees with just a single win from their last 11 matches. How will the Baggies cope with a reinforced Everton midfield that boasts Allan, Andre Gomes and Abdoulaye Doucoure. The impressive James Rodriguez will likely benefit the most from his side winning the midfield battle.
Leeds United vs Fulham
The feelings around the two promoted sides couldn’t be more different as Leeds displayed their will to survive in the 4-3 loss to champions Liverpool in matchday 1. Back in the Premier League for the first time in 16 years, they nearly shocked the Reds and will be full of confidence as they won this fixture 3-0 last year; that is the same scoreline the Cottagers endured at Arsenal.
Manchester United vs Crystal Palace
Left out of the treble due to United having the lowest odds, this is another mismatch despite Palace earning a 1-0 win over Southampton. The Red Devils will be looking to match their main rivals in getting off to a fast start with all eyes on how last season’s influential Bruno Fernandes gets on with new signing Donny van de Beek.
Arsenal vs West Ham
The London bragging rights belong to the Gunners with 10 wins from their last 11 home fixtures in all competitions. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal renaissance act is taking shape with the Community Shield winners starting well against Fulham. This, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s form and the fact that West Ham were 2-0 losers to Newcastle last week spells impeding disaster for the visitors.
Suggested bet: Everton x Leeds x Arsenal all to win at 3.81 or take all four home sides to win at 5.18
