Premier League Matchday Four Review Matchday Five Preview

Last time in the Premier League we landed all three of our tips on the Leicester v Liverpool and Burnley v Manchester United games, which when allied to successes in several other markets, meant for a very profitable weekend indeed, despite the fact that two of my goalscorer picks, Pascal Gross (who missed a penalty) and Christian Benteke (who missed several gilt-edged chances) did their best to scupper my successes!

After a week’s hiatus for the international break last weekend, the Premier League returns this week with another full fixture list running from Saturday through to Monday night’s game on the south coast between Southampton and Brighton.

There are three teams in the Premier League with a 100% winning record still intact after four games and they are the top three, Liverpool, Chelsea and most surprisingly, Watford who recorded a superb win over Tottenham the last time out. Manchester City, with three wins and a draw, are hot on their heels while Tottenham lie fifth having taken nine points from their opening four games.

At the other end of the table, five teams are yet to record a win in the Premier League this season, but only West Ham remain pointless after four games, in what are worrying times for Manuel Pellegrini and his team ahead of a tricky trip to Everton this week.

Outlined below are the full results from Matchday Four of the Premier League, the latest league table and the top goalscorers. We’ll then bring you our tips for the ten games taking place this weekend. Remember if you fancy a flutter, then sign up with the latest bet365 Welcome Bonus to get a bit more for your money.

Leading Goalscorers

4 Goals – Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

3 Goals – Glenn Murray (Brighton), Lucas Moura (Tottenham), Pedro (Chelsea), Richarlison (Everton), Roberto Pereyra (Watford), Romelu Lukaku (Man Utd), Sergio Aguero (Man City)

Games after an international break are always a little trickier to predict than usual. Teams won’t have had as much time to prepare for games, they will have been under new training systems with their countries and won’t have had the usual input from their club managers. As such, managers much prefer a comfortable home game after these breaks, which makes some of this weekend’s games all the more intriguing as that is precisely what has not happened for some teams.

Premier League Matchday 5 Preview and Tips

  • Tottenham v Liverpool

If one team inflicted pain on Liverpool last season more than any other it was Spurs. A 4-1 thumping at Wembley, was followed by a 2-2 draw at Anfield and in both games, Dejan Lovren was culpable for a number of mistakes. While Spurs have not changed much since last season, Liverpool are much, much stronger and I think they’ll be burning to get some revenge here and they could just about snatch the win here.

Full Time Result – Liverpool Win – 7/5

Correct Score – Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) – 5/6

  • Bournemouth v Leicester City

I think Bournemouth’s results have been very impressive this season, while Leicester’s results haven’t been that great but their performances, even in defeat to Man Utd and Liverpool, were excellent. With Jamie Vardy back up top, I fancy the Foxes to take something from this trip south, but I think with the Cherries in good form, the best they can hope for is a point.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Bournemouth 1-1 Leicester City – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – James Maddison (Leicester) – 12/5

  • Chelsea v Cardiff City

Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea have begun the season very well and this should continue at home against a Cardiff City side that has still to win in the Premier League this season. It’s about as easy a game as Chelsea could have hoped for after an international break and it would be a huge surprise if they didn’t make it five wins from five on Saturday afternoon.

Full Time Result – Chelsea Win – 1/6

Correct Score – Chelsea 3-0 Cardiff City

Anytime Goalscorer – Pedro (Chelsea) – 7/5

  • Huddersfield Town v Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace have lost all of their last three, while Huddersfield have drawn both their last two games, including a creditable 1-1 draw away at Everton. However, I think Palace are by far the better side and but for wasteful finishing from Benteke, would have taken something from their game with Southampton last time out. I am backing them to put that right here.

Full Time Result – Crystal Palace Win – 7/5

Correct Score – Huddersfield Town 1-2 Crystal Palace – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Andros Townsend (Crystal Palace) – 15/4

  • Manchester City v Fulham

This should be a very interesting game for the football purists as two teams that like to play attacking football will go at each other at the Etihad. However, I can’t see any chance of an upset here as City are just too strong. Fulham’s squad is still bedding in to the Premier League and in truth, I think the Londoners are in for a torrid afternoon in Manchester.

Full Time Result – Manchester City Win – 1/10

Correct Score – Manchester City 4-1 Fulham

Anytime Goalscorer – David Silva (Manchester City) – 9/4

  • Newcastle United v Arsenal

Both these teams have had tough starts to the season, especially Newcastle, and this promises to be another tough afternoon. Arsenal have won their last two games, but still look poor defensively, so I do feel Newcastle will find the net, but I also feel the Gunners attack is so strong that it will be enough for them to take another three points here.

Full Time Result – Arsenal Win – 17/20

Correct Score – Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – 7/5

  • Watford v Manchester United

Watford were superb in beating Tottenham at home last time out, while United earned a much-needed win away to Burnley. I feel United stack up well against Watford’s main strengths and I think the visitors won’t lose this game, but such is Watford’s confidence and belief that I think the Hornets may yet get a point for their endeavours.

Full Time Result – Draw – 12/5

Correct Score – Watford 1-1 Manchester United – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) – 5/4

  • Wolves v Burnley

Two sides with contrasting fortunes this season meet at Molyneux on Sunday as high-flying big spenders Wolves take on a Burnley side with just one point from four games and on a three-game losing streak. Sean Dyche will get it right again with Burnley but this is a very tough game to come back to and as such, I am backing Wolves to win this one.

Full Time Result – Wolves Win – 3/4

Correct Score – Wolves 2-0 Burnley – 13/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Helder Costa (Wolves) – 12/5

  • Everton v West Ham United

West Ham’s record against Everton over the years, especially at Goodison Park, is absolutely shocking and it is probably one of the games Manuel Pellegrini would not have wanted after the international break. That said, Evertonians weren’t happy with their 1-1 draw with Huddersfield last time out. Even with Richarlison still suspended, I fancy the Toffees to nick the win here.

Full Time Result – Everton Win – 17/20

Correct Score – Everton 2-1 West Ham – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Theo Walcott (Everton) – 2/1

  • Southampton v Brighton

The south coast derby is a rare one in football terms but it is no less passionate than any other. Of the two teams Southampton have enjoyed the more recent win, but Brighton have shown they are a strong side by beating Manchester United. This will be a close one and in the end I couldn’t split the teams and I think this one may well end up being a goalless draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Southampton 0-0 Brighton – 11/2

First/Last Goalscorer – No Goalscorer – 7/1
