The Premier League returns after the international break with a full fixture list and that means we take a look at England’s top flight in order to put together an accumulator. Here’s what we’ve picked out this weekend.
Fulham to beat Luton Town
Luton have lost three from three in the Premier League so far. With their next fixture taking them to Craven Cottage, we can’t see that changing. They’ve looked out of their depth so far, and although Fulham haven’t been at their best, Marco Silva’s men should simply have too much quality for Luton.
The more games they lose, the shorter the odds will be for the opposition. 4/6 isn’t actually that short given what we have seen so far this term, so it’s worth adding to your acca.
Aston Villa to beat Crystal Palace
Villa may have been taken apart by Liverpool last time out, but they can enjoy home comforts once again against Crystal Palace. Villa have beaten Hibernian 3-0 and Everton 4-0 so far this season, and although Palace represent a step up in quality, Unai Emery’s men should be able to secure victory.
Roy Hodgson’s men have found goals easy to come by in recent weeks, so we could be in for a cracking encounter – but we are backing the home side to come out on top.
Man City to beat West Ham
Manchester City are still the best side in England. They’ve been faultless so far this term, and the 4/9 on offer for them to go to West Ham and win seems worth taking up. They beat David Moyes’ men 2-0 on the opening day of last season, and even though West Ham are unbeaten so far this term, there is a clear difference in quality. If the Hammers go for it, expect Erling Haaland to run riot.
Brighton to score over 1.5 goals
Manchester United vs Brighton is one of the most intriguing fixtures of the weekend, and one we truly can’t call. What we can do is assess that United are not at their best defensively at this moment in time. Diogo Dalot is likely to play at left-back again, Raphael Varane is still injured and so Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez will partner each other in the centre of defence.
Although Manchester United are more than capable of scoring two or three goals here, and the result is truly up for grabs, Brighton should be able to take advantage of that weak back line. With Evan Ferguson on fire, the Seagulls have scored 12 goals in their four matches so far.
If they take the game to Manchester United, they should be able to score at least twice – even if they don’t get the final result they want.
