Premier League Tips and Preview for Matchday Six


We had a fantastic week last week, predicting the correct scores of three games, the match result correctly of seven as well as a number of goalscorer bets coming home too. As such we made another healthy profit on those games and we are looking to do similar this week.

It is nice to enjoy a run of decent returns and it gives you confidence for the tips for this weekend’s selection of Premier League games, eight of which take place on Saturday, with two more games taking place on the Sunday.

If you fancy a flutter on any of the bets outlined below then as always, I recommend bet365 Sport as your first port of call. There’s a bet365 Sport New Player Bonus available for customers signing up with the company for the first time which will offer you good value for money when you join.

This past weekend saw Watford’s 100% record come to an end as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Manchester United (exactly as we predicted). We even had Lukaku to grab a goal for United (which he did) to ensure that we landed a full house on this particular game.

However, Liverpool and Chelsea continued their excellent starts to the season by racking up their fifth win in five games. Liverpool with a 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley (another result that we got bang on the money) in a match that the Reds totally dominated. Chelsea came from a goal down to thump Cardiff City 4-1 at Stamford Bridge and in doing so, moved above Liverpool in the table on goal difference.

West Ham also jumped off the bottom of the table thanks to their impressive 3-1 win away to Everton last weekend, which means that Burnley drop to the bottom of the table and the Clarets, along with Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and Cardiff City are the only teams in the Premier League yet to record a win this season.

Following a busy week of European action, these games are a prelude to a week of Carabao Cup action, although I do expect most teams in the Premier League to play second-string teams for these games.

With that in mind, here are out selections for this weekend’s matches in the Premier League.

Premier League Matchday 6 Preview and Tips

  • Fulham v Watford

I like the way both these sides are set up to play attacking football and while I fancy Watford are the stronger team in terms of personnel, Fulham have some fine players and home advantage which I feel cancels things out a little. As such, I feel that Watford may take the lead here but Fulham will strike back to claim a point.

Full Time Result – Draw – 12/5

Correct Score – Fulham 1-1 Watford – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Troy Deeney (Watford) – 7/4

  • Burnley v Bournemouth

Another defeat last week condemned Burnley to bottom spot in the Premier League and manager Sean Dyche will know he needs a reaction from his team to turn things around. Bournemouth are in great shape in fifth place in the table but I feel Burnley will be really up for this one and as such, I am backing them to stop the rot by claiming a draw here.

Full Time Result – Draw – 21/10

Correct Score – Burnley 1-1 Bournemouth – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – 8/5

  • Cardiff City v Manchester City

Cardiff City played Chelsea last week and now it is Manchester City this in what has been a tough period for Neil Warnock’s team. City are flying in the league and look capable of beating any team comfortably at the moment and as such, I fully expect Pep Guardiola’s team to get the job done here in relatively easy fashion.

Full Time Result – Manchester City to win – 1/6

Correct Score – Cardiff City 0-3 Manchester City – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Riyad Mahrez (Man City) – 6/5

  • Crystal Palace v Newcastle United

I feel this is the game where the surprise this weekend will come. Palace won last week but they are not playing consistently, whereas Newcastle are but have had a very tough run of games so far this season. I can see Newcastle keeping this one very tight and then perhaps nicking a goal late on to snatch a vital three points here.

Full Time Result – Newcastle to win – 11/4

Correct Score – Crystal Palace 0-1 Newcastle United – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Ayoze Perez (Newcastle United) – 3/1

  • Leicester City v Huddersfield Town

Leicester were poor last week against Bournemouth and went down to a surprising 4-2 defeat. Huddersfield are finding life in the Premier League much tougher this season than they did last and I think that they could well be amongst the teams going down at the end of the season. The Foxes will bounce back from their blip last week to win here.

Full Time Result – Leicester to win – 11/20

Correct Score – Leicester City 2-0 Huddersfield Town – 13/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Jamie Vardy (Leicester City) – 21/20

  • Liverpool v Southampton

A 3-2 win over Paris St Germain in the Champions League gave Liverpool a real boost heading into this game, not that they need it having racked up five wins already in the Premier League. I expect Southampton will come to defend deep and deny Liverpool the space to get behind them but I think this Reds team can unlock any defence that attempts to do that.

Full Time Result – Liverpool to win – 1/5

Correct Score – Liverpool 3-1 Southampton – 11/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – 11/10

  • Manchester United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

This could be the most interesting game of the weekend as United take on a Wolves side that have hit the ground running in the Premier League and who have already taken a point from Manchester City. United though are looking much more like themselves in recent away wins at Burnley and Watford and I think they will come through this one, though it will be close.

Full Time Result – Manchester United win – 4/7

Correct Score – Man Utd 2-1 Wolves – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) – 11/10

  • Brighton v Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham come into this game in the rare position of having lost three games in a row since their 3-0 win at Old Trafford before the international break. This is now a must-win game for them against a Brighton side who earned a fine point with a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Monday. This will be close, but I am backing Spurs to get back to winning ways here.

Full Time Result – Tottenham to win – 8/11

Correct Score – Brighton 1-2 Tottenham – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – 13/10

  • West Ham United v Chelsea

West Ham got back to winning ways with a fine win over Everton last week at Goodison Park, but it is a big ask to back that up against a Chelsea side with five wins out of five this season. The Hammers do have a decent record at home against Chelsea of late and I think they will make a real game of this but I am backing the visitors to grab the win here.

Full Time Result – Chelsea to win – 9/20

Correct Score – West Ham 1-2 Chelsea – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Pedro (Chelsea) – 7/4

  • Arsenal v Everton

Evertonians were heartily sick of the sight of Arsenal last season as the Gunners ran up two five-goal wins against them, 5-1 at the Emirates and 5-2 at Goodison Park. Everton’s defensive woes mean that this could be another tough afternoon for Marco Silva’s team and as such, I am backing the home side to win this one relatively comfortably.

Full Time Result – Arsenal to win – 4/9

Correct Score – Arsenal 2-0 Everton – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) – 15/8
