Premier League Acca – 17th & 18th October

After what seemed an ice age of international fixtures this past week, we are now back on more familiar footing with the Premier League, although judging by the results last time out in this competition, I am not quite sure we know the teams in this league as well as we thought!

I don’t know many people who has a Man Utd to lose 6-1 and Liverpool to lose 7-2 double for that weekend, but it was a weekend of shocks with Man City held at Leeds and Leicester City, previously unbeaten, going down meekly at home to an invigorated West Ham United.

It remains to be seen whether that weekend was just an aberration, or whether it is indicative in a shift of the balance of power in the Premier League, but with a fierce weekend of action ahead, due to a number of derby games and rival matches, we should perhaps get a clearer idea of that following this set of games.

The action starts at Goodison Park with table toppers Everton hoping to keep their 100% record going against Liverpool, with the Reds trying to regroup after that mauling at Aston Villa last time out. Other big games include Man City’s game with Arsenal, Man Utd’s trip to face Newcastle and Leicester City taking on the unbeaten and second-placed Aston Villa.

Here’s my four tips for this weekend’s accumulator bet.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 17th October

Everton v Liverpool – Draw

The last four games between these two teams in the Premier League at Goodison Park have yielded just one goal, three draws (from the last three games) and just one win, for Liverpool back in 2016 thanks to a last minute Sadio Mane strike. As such, it is probably no surprise that I have gone for a draw here once again, although I think this game is now very different. This new Everton side look to be much more dangerous and I think they will push the Reds hard here. For Liverpool, they must answer after that abysmal defensive showing away to Villa last time out where they conceded seven and, in truth, it could easily have been double figures. That cannot happen again against their most fierce rivals and as such, I think this one ends in a closely fought draw.

Newcastle Utd v Man Utd – Away Win

It seems strange to think that Newcastle are four points ahead of Man Utd, even though the Red Devils have a game in hand, but I think that is about right given how both teams have performed so far this season. The home side have proven to be a stubborn team to beat in all games, apart from their home loss to Brighton and I think they will be really up for this game. However, I am fully expecting a big reaction from Manchester United following that heavy loss at home to Spurs last time out as they know that defeat here, their third in what would be four EPL games, could well heap the pressure on the team and manager. They are too good to not react here and I think they will do just enough to snatch the win.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 18th October

Sheffield United v Fulham – Home Win

These two teams are right at the foot of the Premier League table and have zero points after their four games so far. Both managers will have earmarked this game as a must-win encounter as a result and in truth, I can only see one team winning it. As poor as they have been this season, Sheffield United are still much better than Fulham in my view and I think Scott Parker is just realising just how far his side are from being a top level Premier League side. I am backing the Blades to be sharper this weekend and to claim their first win of the season here.

Leicester City v Aston Villa – Home Win

Last time out, Leicester were thumped at home by a superb performance by West Ham and on the same weekend, Aston Villa produced the result of the decade when they thumped Champions Liverpool 7-2 in what was an astonishing display at Villa Park. After the international break, I think both managers will be keen to build on what has been a decent start for both teams to this season and while Villa’s unbeaten record is impressive, I do think that they could come unstuck here against a Leicester side that I feel will have a point to prove after that very poor display, by their own standards, against West Ham last time out. This will be a closely contested midlands battle, but I am just favouring the Foxes to get back to winning ways here.
