This week's Premier League fixtures

Norwich vs Watford (Fri, 20:00)

Watford remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table and are still awaiting their first win but there have been signs of improvement lately.

The Hornets have drawn three of their last four games and almost extended that run with a late fightback in last week's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

Norwich are bottom of the form table with just one point from their six matches since beating Manchester City but are averaging two goals a game at Carrow Road this season.

The Canaries are the favourites at 2/5 in the Premier League relegation odds and both teams will see this as a must-win game so we're backing a high-scoring game to get the weekend started.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace (Sat, 12:30)

Palace have made a solid start to the season but have struggled to make an impact against the top teams.

They failed to find the net in three of the four matches against teams currently above them in the table and went down 4-0 at Tottenham.

That was a rare heavy defeat though and four of Chelsea's five home games have produced three goals or fewer so a Blues win and under 3.5 goals appeals at odds against.

Burnley vs West Ham (Sat, 15:00)

West Ham's form has nosedived and they have only taken one point from a run of four games which looked a favourable one at the start of October.

Their defence was carved open far too easily last week by Newcastle, who had only managed six goals prior to their 3-2 win at the London Stadium.

Burnley have lost three in a row but can usually be relied upon at home to teams in the bottom half, having already beaten Everton, Southampton and Norwich without conceding, so a home win is added to our Premier League predictions this weekend.

This weekend's best bets

If you're interested in football accumulators, check out our regular betting columns:

Newcastle vs Bournemouth (Sat, 15:00)

Bournemouth ended a goal drought which had lasted 359 minutes with Josh King's solo effort against Manchester United last week and that was enough to earn a 1-0 win thanks to a third successive clean sheet.

Their last four Premier League games have produced just two goals and it is hard to see them being involved in a thriller on Tyneside.

Newcastle had been struggling to create chances too until their trip to West Ham. That was the first time this season they have scored more than one goal in a game, so opposing goals is the obvious pick here.

Southampton vs Everton (Sat, 15:00)

Southampton's two trips to Manchester City did not go as badly as many feared following the record 9-0 defeat at home to Leicester and they have at least restored some pride.

Both managers are under some pressure heading into the St Mary's showdown though and defeat for either side would be a damaging blow in their bid to climb away from the relegation zone.

The tension is hardly likely to help create an entertaining spectacle and with Everton managing just three away goals so far, we're backing under 2.5 goals again.

Tottenham vs Sheffield United (Sat, 15:00)

Sheffield United may feel aggrieved at Premier League odds of 9/2 for them to win this given the start they have made to the season.

The Blades have the joint-best defensive record in the division, despite facing four of the top five, and are unbeaten on their travels.

Tottenham have gone four Premier League matches without a win and Wednesday night's away game against Red Star Belgrade means this is a good time to be facing them so United are worth backing to avoid defeat.

Leicester vs Arsenal (Sat, 17:30)

Leicester's stunning start to the season means they are now shorter Premier League odds (evens) for a top-four finish than Arsenal (2/1) and this is a perfect chance to extend their six-point advantage over the Gunners.

Arsenal remain easy to oppose on their travels, given they have only won at Newcastle, and they have won just two of their last nine league games.

The pace with which Leicester attack should cause plenty of problems for the visitors so we'll add a home win to our Premier League betting tips.

Manchester United vs Brighton (Sun, 14:00)

It says a lot about the current state of Manchester United that their defeat at Bournemouth barely registered as an upset and Brighton are two points above them ahead of their trip to Old Trafford.

Three wins and nine goals from their last four games - the same return as United have had since their 4-0 win against Chelsea on the opening weekend - mean the Seagulls will be full of confidence.

With United also in Europa League action on Thursday, Brighton's odds of 27/20 with a one-goal start on the handicap look too big.

Wolves vs Aston Villa (Sun, 14:00)

Aston Villa are making a habit of throwing points away and that trend continued last week when they took the lead but went down 2-1 at home to Liverpool.

Wolves, on the other hand, are the comeback kings and again came from behind in their sixth 1-1 draw of the season at Arsenal.

They have only kept one clean sheet at Molineux while Villa have found the net in four of their six defeats so a Wolves win and both teams to score appeals at 14/5.

Liverpool vs Manchester City (Sun, 16:30)

Liverpool have a six-point lead over the defending champions heading into this crunch clash at Anfield and the Reds are the 4/5 favourites in the Premier League winner odds.

Jurgen Klopp's men have not been beaten in the league since their loss at the Etihad last January and their last home defeat came in April 2017. They have dropped just two points this term.

Despite that, Manchester City have been priced up as favourites for victory on Sunday. They are likely to be without David Silva while the departure of Vincent Kompany and an injury to Aymeric Laporte has made them look vulnerable in defence so a Liverpool win is the last of our Premier League predictions this weekend at 17/10.
