Premier League Matchday Five Review Matchday Six Preview

We had an absolutely fantastic set of results last week, not only getting the Full Time Result market correct on seven out of the ten games, but we also landed a number of much higher odds selections such as the following:

  • Liverpool to beat Tottenham 2-1 – 10/1
  • Anytime Goalscorer – James Maddison (Leicester) 12/5
  • Anytime Goalscorer – David Silva (Man City) – 9/4
  • Arsenal to beat Newcastle 2-1 – 8/1

This meant that last weekend was a fantastic one for my tips and I am confident of doing likewise this weekend, which is Matchday Six of the Premier League and it is also the first weekend after the six teams involved in the Champions League and Europa League (Man City, Man Utd, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal) have played in that tournament in the week before.

This weekend’s set of fixtures sees eight games on Saturday, with two taking place on Sunday. Highlights include Manchester United’s home game against newly promoted and impressive-looking Wolves, while Chelsea and Liverpool put their 100% unbeaten records on the line against West Ham United and Southampton respectively.

At the bottom end of the table, West Ham picked up their first win of the season at Everton last weekend which leaves just four clubs, Burnley, Huddersfield Town, Newcastle United and Cardiff City without a win this season.

Outlined below are the full set of results from Matchday five, plus the latest league tables and leading goalscorers in the Premier League.

Leading Goalscorers

5 Goals – Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

4 Goals – Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Glenn Murray (Brighton), Romelu Lukaku (Man Utd), Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

It is about this point in the season that teams at the top of the table start to think about rotating players in and out of the team following midweek European games, especially if they have had to travel for those matches. However, with a Carabao Cup week coming up for teams next week, I’d expect most teams to be at full strength this weekend, with players given the chance to rest in those games next week. Here’s my tips for this weekend’s Premier League games.

Premier League Matchday 6 Previews and Tips

  • Fulham v Watford

This should be a cracking game between two very similar sides, who are both attack minded and have a surfeit of foreign born players who have brought a new dimension to the team. I feel Watford are the better unit, but I think home advantage gives Fulham a big advantage. I can see goals here, but I do feel that in the end the match will likely finish in an entertaining draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 12/5

Correct Score – Fulham 2-2 Watford – 12/1

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

  • Burnley v Bournemouth

Burnley are desperate for points as they now prop up the Premier League and they face a Bournemouth team that are flying high in fifth place in the table. Based on form alone, the Cherries should be the winners here, but something tells me Sean Dyche will have had this fixture circled in big red ink in his office as game that the home side must get something from and I think they will do precisely that, but it won’t be a win.

Full Time Result – Draw – 21/10

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

Anytime Goalscorer – Ashley Barnes (Burnley) – 2/1

  • Cardiff City v Manchester City

Cardiff City must have dreaded the past couple of weeks with games with Chelsea followed by Manchester City and having played Arsenal not long before. Can I make a case for the Bluebirds to claim something here? Not a chance. City should win this one and win it very comfortably indeed. Anything less would be a shock,

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

Correct Score – Cardiff City 0-4 Manchester City – 17/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) – 13/10

  • Crystal Palace v Newcastle United

This is a game that I think could see a Newcastle upset even though recent form suggests Palace are the team to back. Palace’s inconsistency worries me here so I am tipping them for the win with no great confidence. I can see Newcastle keeping it very tight so I think there may just be one goal that decides it and I feel the home side have more chance of getting it.

Full Time Result – Crystal Palace to win – Evens

Correct Score – Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle United – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Andros Townsend (Crystal Palace) – 3/1

  • Leicester City v Huddersfield Town

Leicester were poor last week away to a rampant Bournemouth, but I think they’ll be looking to put that right at home against the whipping boys of Huddersfield Town. David Wagner’s team are finding life a lot tougher in their second Premier League season and in truth, I see Leicester winning this one very comfortably indeed.

Full Time Result – Leicester to win – 11/20

Correct Score – Leicester City 3-1 Huddersfield Town – 14/1

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

  • Liverpool v Southampton

A 3-2 midweek Champions League win over Paris St Germain will be a huge boost to Liverpool going into this game. The Reds have won all six of their games this season and it is hard to make a case for Southampton ending that run here. Mark Hughes men dropped two points after leading 2-0 at Brighton on Monday and I think they’ll find this trip to Anfield very tough indeed.

Full Time Result – Liverpool to win – 1/5

Correct Score – Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

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

  • Manchester United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

This could well be the most intriguing game of the weekend as Wolves seek to underline their massive improvement over the past 18 months or so at Old Trafford. United have won their last two Premier League games but faced a trip to Switzerland in midweek. This could be a tricky afternoon for United against a well-disciplined Wolves team but I think they will just about get the job done.

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

After three defeats in a row, including a last minute loss to Inter in the Champions League in midweek, this become a must win game for Spurs, if only to preserve some morale in the team. Brighton will be tough at home and I think this will be a real battle but I do feel that Tottenham will get back to winning ways but it will be a close call.

Full Time Result – Tottenham to win – 8/11

Correct Score – Brighton 0-1 Tottenham – 15/2

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

  • West Ham United v Chelsea

West Ham have a great record against Chelsea at home in recent years winning three of their last four home games against them. However this Chelsea team has won all of its five Premier League games so far and will pose the Hammers a real test. The win over Everton will be a huge boost for the home side and I am backing them to come good here and snatch an unexpected point.

Full Time Result – West Ham v Chelsea – Draw – 7/2

Correct Score – West Ham 2-2 Chelsea – 16/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) – 21/10

  • Arsenal v Everton

Last season Arsenal thumped Everton 5-1 at home and then 5-2 at Goodison Park and given Everton’s defensive frailties at the moment, especially in centre defence, I think the Toffees could be in for another torrid afternoon here. Arsenal are definitely Everton’s bogey team at the moment and I can’t see anything other than a solid home win here.

Full Time Result – Arsenal to win – 4/9

Correct Score – Arsenal 4-1 Everton

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