Premier League Matchday Two Review Matchday Three Preview

Last weekend in the Premier League provided us with a number of insights into the season ahead. The signs look good for the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham in particular, while Bournemouth and Watford will also be delighted at their 100% winning start to the new campaign.

For other teams it was a rude awakening as the likes of Huddersfield Town and Fulham went down to heavy defeats while for Arsenal and Manchester United it was a weekend of misery as both lost their games, Arsenal away to Chelsea and Manchester United most surprisingly on the road at Brighton.

Premier League Matchday 3 Preview and Tips

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester City

Wolves have done well on their return to the Premier League but City are a class apart from almost every other team in this division. I can’t see the home team celebrating a win or even a draw here as I’m backing a comfortable win for City.

Full Time Result – Manchester City to win – 2/9

Correct Score – Wolves 1-3 Manchester City – 11/1

Anytime Goalscorer – David Silva (Manchester City) – 3/1

  • Southampton v Leicester City

Southampton have started the season slowly once again and I am not sure Mark Hughes will be the right manager to get them away from the drop zone. I’d have backed Leicester to win this had Jamie Vardy not been suspended but with their England striker out, I’ll back the teams to share a point from this tie.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Southampton 1-1 Leicester City

Anytime Goalscorer – Danny Ings (Southampton) – 11/5

  • Arsenal v West Ham United

Arsenal’s torrid start to the season gets a little easier now against a West Ham side who, like Arsenal, have lost both their games so far this season. For me, the Gunners are far the better team here as West Ham’s squad don’t look like they have gelled into a cohesive unit as yet. Arsenal to win this one and win it well.

Full Time Result – Arsenal to win – 1/3

Correct Score – Arsenal 3-0 West Ham – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – 11/5

  • Bournemouth v Everton

Both these sides will be very happy with their start to the season and although Bournemouth have a 100% record, I think they won’t keep that against an Everton side already showing a big improvement on last season. That said, Bournemouth are flying so I think this is a game which will ebb and flow and likely end in an entertaining draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

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

Anytime Goalscorer – Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) – 7/5

  • Huddersfield Town v Cardiff City

Huddersfield have had a miserable start to the season and Cardiff are the only Premier League side without a goal so far this season. Something has to give here and I’m backing the home side to get back to winning ways here against a limited Cardiff side, although it is not going to be easy for Huddersfield following their tough start.

Full Time Result – Huddersfield Town to win – 5/4

Correct Score – Huddersfield Town 2-1 Cardiff City – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Aaron Mooy (Huddersfield Town) – 15/4

  • Liverpool v Brighton

Brighton will come into this game in great confidence having beaten Manchester United last weekend but they face a Liverpool side who have not conceded a goal at Anfield since February and who have won both their games comfortably so far this season. I think the Reds will do so again, especially if their strike force starts to get into the groove once again.

Full Time Result – Liverpool to win – 1/6

Correct Score – Liverpool 4-0 Brighton – 9/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Roberto Firmino (Liverpool) – 10/11

  • Watford v Crystal Palace

Watford have made a great start to the season and are lying fourth in the table after two wins. Palace lost to Liverpool on Monday but gave a very good account of themselves. I think the visitors have the skill to get something here and I would not be surprised if this one ends in a competitive draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Watford 1-1 Crystal Palace – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Wilfred Zaha (Crystal Palace) – 9/4

  • Fulham v Burnley

I think both these teams will be disappointed with their starts this season. Both managers will know that they need to try and avoid defeat here and as such, I think both team will want to be very tight defensively. As such, I think this has the potential to be a low scoring game with perhaps a 0-0 draw being the most likely result.

Full Time Result – Draw

Correct Score – Fulham 0-0 Burnley

Anytime Goalscorer – No Goalscorer – 7/1

  • Newcastle United v Chelsea

Chelsea’s next away day sees them visit Newcastle United and this should be a good game. Chelsea looked superb at times against Arsenal, but also showed real defensive frailties which Newcastle on home soil will seek to exploit. However I think Chelsea’s greater attacking flair will ensure that they take all three points here.

Full Time Result – Chelsea to win – 4/6

Correct Score – Newcastle United 1-2 Chelsea – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – Evens

  • Manchester United v Tottenham

The biggest game of the weekend comes on Monday night as Manchester United seek to bounce back from the defeat to Brighton against Tottenham, who have two wins from two games. This should be a cracking game and I can see both teams scoring goals here, but I also feel both sides are very well matched and I fancy this one to be another entertaining draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 9/4

Correct Score – Manchester United 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur – 14/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) – 6/4
