Premier League Matchday 1 Accumulator – 10th-11th August

Hello again and welcome back to our Acca Nation tips for the firstAcca Tips weekend of the Premier League season! I hope you are suitably refreshed and ready to go once again for the forthcoming nine months of top EPL and European action and who knows, maybe we can just land a few accas over that period to make it a profitable year for us all.

We’re changing things up a little this year and instead of having two sets of bets across the weekend, we are going to focus almost exclusively on the Premier League games (when they are taking place of course) and as such, our tips will include on accumulator from matches played in the EPL on Saturday and Sunday most weekends.

Hopefully this will allow us a greater choice of games and will make picking winning accumulators, hopefully, a little easier than when you have a smaller selection and you have to pick a couple of tough matches to predict to fill out the selection.

It’s been a busy pre-season and for some players, they have hardly had a break, so it is going to be interesting to see how the opening weeks of the season unravel. Will Manchester City and Liverpool continue to dominate? Or will one of the chasing pack prove their credentials against the two teams that dominated the Premier League last season?

Let’s get things underway with this nice little fourfold selection for the first weekend of action on 10th and 11th August. There’s nine games taking place on those days, with just Liverpool’s season opener against Norwich City on Friday night not being played then.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 10th August

Bournemouth v Sheffield United  – Home Win

Of the three promoted teams, I think Sheffield United are the ones most likely to struggle this season, especially on the road. Chris Wilder did an incredible job with his team to gain promotion last year but I can’t see how that squad can realistically do anything more than battle against relegation. Bournemouth have been quick starters in the EPL over the last couple of seasons and I think Eddie Howe will want his team to do the same again this year, especially as in both previous seasons, their form in the latter half of the season has been poor. I think Bournemouth have made some very shrewd signings this season too and I like the look of the team and I am confident that they will ge their season off to a winning start against the Blades at home.

Crystal Palace v Everton – Draw

Two of the more inconsistent sides in the Premier League last season meet at Selhurst Park in what is going to be an interesting clash. Palace’s woes at home last season contributed to them battling relegation for most of the season before pulling away near the end of the season and Roy Hodgson will know this squad is more than talented enough to avoid that this time around. Similarly, after spending big last season, Everton will want to improve on their mid-table spot this time around and the pressure will be on Marco Silva to do that. The problem I have is that I don’t see either side improving their team enough to take that big next step fully and I think the defensive weaknesses that dogged both sides last season, are still there. As such, I can see both teams netting here and the game finishing in a score draw.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 11th August

Leicester City v Wolves – Draw

Two sides that I think have made some of the best moves in the pre-season period and who I have a strong suspicion could really challenge the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal for a place inside that top six. Of the two, I think Leicester may be just the more robust for the Premier League season but as Wolves showed last year, they are a match for any side in this division on their day. This will be a very close battle at the King Power Stadium and I don’t think either team will be too unhappy if they were to get their season off to a non-losing start. As such, I am backing the draw here.

Manchester United v Chelsea – Draw

It is going to be hugely interesting to see how both these teams perform this season. Chelsea have a new manager and a transfer ban means that Frank Lampard will be more reliant than any Chelsea manager over the last few years on a crop of talented younger players. Manchester United neeed to bounce back after a dismal end of season run last year under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and a pre-season filled with stories about who they are going to buy and sell, which is never the most settling for any club. I still think both clubs have more questions about them then answers at the moment and I think as such, this is a game which will likely end all-square.
