The Premier League kicks off on Friday night with a clash at Goodison Park, with the bookies making Everton firm favourites to beat Crystal Palace.
The Toffees are no bigger than 7/10 (bet365) to claim victory although they were second-best at Bournemouth last Saturday and the Eagles are 21/5 (BetVictor) to claim a scalp on Merseyside and continue their fine form.
On Saturday lunchtime, it’s the red half of Merseyside in action and Liverpool have been sublime in recent weeks, scoring goals for fun and destroying teams.
The Reds are strong favourites at 1/2 (BetVictor) to win at the Liberty Stadium and Swansea won’t be helped by the rumours that Francesco Guidolin is likely to leave the Welsh club at some stage.
The Swans played well against Manchester City last week and they are 13/2 (William Hill) to boost their survival hopes with a victory, although this does look like an away banker.
Hull City are a tasty enough price at 6/1 (betway) to beat a beleaguered Chelsea team who are strangely short at 1/2 (Stan James) to land a maximum haul. Meanwhile, Sunderland badly need a first win under David Moyes and they are 7/5 (Ladbrokes) to get it.
West Brom are a 21/10 chance (Paddy Power) and you know that a Tony Pulis side will always be effective, with the Baggies drawing at Stoke last weekend. Bournemouth also got the job done last weekend and they look a big price at 11/5 (bet365) to claim three points at Vicarage Road.
After all, Watford were rudderless at Burnley on Monday night and look too short to win at 5/4 (188Bet) considering the Hornets’ defence is porous, while West Ham are also leaking goals and Sky Bet take a stand-out 6/5 that they beat Middlesbrough. Boro are 13/5 (Ladbrokes) to stop their own rot and win at the London Stadium.
Manchester United will be a coupon banker at home to Stoke and BetVictor have 2/7 about the Red Devils. The Potters don’t have a good record at Old Trafford and that explains the 11/1 (Ladbrokes) that they win this Sunday lunchtime clash.
Leicester move on from the Porto clash with a tie against Southampton and the Foxes are 5/4 favourites (Sky Bet) to beat a Saints side travelling late back from Israel. Claude Puel’s side are in good form though and bet365 go 5/2 about an away win.
Tottenham v Manchester City is the biggest fixture of the Premier League weekend, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side looking to land a victory which would open up the title race.
Spurs are a massive 13/5 (BetVictor) to claim the spoils and they’ll be encouraged by the prospect of facing a City side missing Kevin de Bruyne.
Pep Guardiola’s side are a 23/20 poke (betway) and they have been playing some magnificent football. Sergio Aguero is proving himself to be one of the deadliest strikers in Europe and Sky Bet go 4/1 that the Argentine breaks the deadlock.
