Premier League Preview and Tips for Matchday Seven
We had three big Correct Score wins last week, including Fulham v Watford, Arsenal v Everton and Brighton v Spurs, each of which landed us a lengthy odds win and ensured that we were into solid profit from our Premier League tips before we even added up the cash we brought in from six correct results and a couple of anytime goalscorer winners.
After a solid set of tips the week before, we are looking very strong in the Premier League at the moment and I am hoping to continue that across Matchday Seven this weekend, which features eight games on Saturday, one on Sunday and the final game on Monday evening.

Over the last couple of weeks we first saw Watford’s 100% winning record fall by the wayside and then last week Chelsea’s bit the dust as they were held 0-0 by West Ham in an entertaining London derby that both sides will feel that they should have won.
That result coupled with Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Southampton at Anfield, means that it is the Reds that have the final 100% winning record in the Premier League this season, and that record is going to be put to the test mightily over the next two weekends as Jurgen Klopp’s team face Chelsea away on Saturday and then follow that up with a home game against Manchester City next weekend.
Other noteworthy performances came from Manchester City who moved up to second in the table above Chelsea on goal difference with a 5-0 demolition job on Cardiff City, in Wales. Burnley also found their form to land their first win of the season with a stunning 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at Turf Moor.
Teams in the Champions League and Europa League will be in action once again in the midweek period following these games, followed by another Premier League set of games, so it is a busy week and it is going to be interesting to see how this affects team selections for the top teams engaged in each of these competitions.
Here’s my set of tips for this weekend’s games in the Premier League.
Premier League Matchday 7 Previews and Tips
West Ham v Manchester United
This is a tricky game for both sides. West Ham have now gone three games without defeat and will want that to continue here, but Man Utd will want a reaction after losing to Derby on penalties in the Carabao Cup in the week. I expect Jose Mourinho to ring the changes here and that may well be enough to inspire the visitors to a narrow win.
Full Time Result – Manchester United to win – 17/20
Correct Score – West Ham 1-2 Man Utd – 8/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Jesse Lingard (Man Utd) – 12/5
Arsenal v Watford
Since losing their opening two games, Arsenal have won all their others, scoring plenty of goals in the process, but looking less than stellar defensively. Watford have not win in two games but earned a point away to Fulham in a game they really should have won. They’ll push Arsenal hard, but I think Arsenal’s greater attacking firepower will be the difference between the teams.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 2/5
Correct Score – Arsenal 3-1 Watford – 10/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – 11/5
Everton v Fulham
The return of Richarlison added some fizz to the Everton attack last weekend at Arsenal but it still wasn’t enough to avoid another defeat. Fulham earned a draw with Watford but their defensive frailties were exposed time and time in that game and I think Everton, at home, will be well poised to take advantage of that here against a team that the Toffee’s have an excellent record against.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 8/11
Correct Score – Everton 2-0 Fulham – 10/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Richarlison (Everton) – 7/4
Huddersfield Town v Tottenham
Spurs ended a run of three successive defeats last weekend at Brighton while Huddersfield went down to another defeat away to Leicester. I think the Terriers are in real trouble this season and in truth, I can’t see them picking up too many wins, especially against the big boys in the Premier League. I think this is a good time for Spurs to play the home side and I am expecting a Tottenham win.
Full Time Result – Away Win – 2/5
Correct Score – Huddersfield 1-2 Tottenham – 15/2
Anytime Goalscorer – Lucas Moura (Tottenham) – 7/4
Manchester City v Brighton
I can’t really make a great case for Brighton getting something against Manchester City. The home side are just too strong at the moment and Brighton, though they have beaten Man Utd and pushed Liverpool and Spurs hard, I don’t feel will be up to the task to stop a rampant City at the moment. As such, I am expecting another comfortable afternoon’s viewing for City fans here.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 1/14
Correct Score – Manchester City 4-0 Brighton – 7/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Bernardo Silva (Man City) – 6/5
Newcastle United v Leicester City
I worry for Newcastle this season. Admittedly, they have had three massively tough home games so far, but just two draws is a poor return for Rafa Benitez team’s six games so far. Leicester have also been up and down but their squad is much stronger and more settled than the home side and with Jamie Vardy back in business, I think he will be the difference between the two teams in what I think will be a narrow Leicester victory.
Full Time Result – Away Win – 2/1
Correct Score – Newcastle 0-1 Leicester City -17/2
Anytime Goalscorer – Jamie Vardy (Leicester) – 7/4
Wolves v Southampton
Last weekend Wolves went to Old Trafford and put on a superb display to fully earn a point against Manchester United, while Southampton were thumped 3-0 at Anfield and in the second half, basically only attempted to keep the score down. For me, Wolves are the class act here even though the Saints have more Premier League pedigree so I am backing the home team to get a good win here.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 8/11
Correct Score – Wolves 3-1 Southampton – 16/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Raul Jiminez (Wolves) – 6/4
Chelsea v Liverpool
Liverpool’s recent record over Chelsea is pretty good, although they did lose earlier in the year here thanks to a single goal from Olivier Giroud. The Reds have started the season well but Chelsea have too and I think home advantage, plus the form of Eden Hazard, who always is a thorn in the side for Liverpool, will be just enough for Chelsea to take a vital three points here.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 15/8
Correct Score – Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool – 12/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – 5/4
Cardiff City v Burnley
Could this be the first relegation six-pointer of the season? It seems so, even though Burnley’s plight was helped with a superb 4-0 win last weekend over Bournemouth. Cardiff are yet to record a win in the Premier League this season and Neil Warnock will know that these games must be won if his team is to stay up. However with Burnley hitting form last weekend, I think it is a bad time to play them. Hence, I am going for the draw in this one.
Full Time Result – Draw – 2/1
Correct Score – Cardiff City 1-1 Burnley
Anytime Goalscorer – Matej Vydra (Burnley) – 5/2
Bournemouth v Crystal Palace
I find both of these teams very unpredictable and both are somewhat inconsistent, although Bournemouth have had the better start to the season. Palace’s lack of goals is a real worry though and I struggle to see where they are going to score enough goals to get a result here. Bournemouth were awful last week at Burnley, but they’ll bounce back here with a solid win.
Full Time Result – Home Win – 6/5
Correct Score – Bournemouth 2-0 Crystal Palace – 12/1
Anytime Goalscorer – Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – 13/10
