We are now just over a quarter of the way through the Premier League season and the table is now starting to take shape.

As expected, it is Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City that lead the way, but West Ham have forced their way into this elite group on the back of some superb performances from David Moyes team over the last 10 months or so.

Outside of this top four, there are a host of teams battling it out to get amongst the battle for European places at the very least.

This weekend we have a big set of games with Chelsea looking to extend their lead at the top of the table as they kick off the day before Liverpool at home to Burnley.

The Londoners main rivals all face each other in two crucial games with second placed Liverpool facing fourth placed West Ham in London on Sunday’s late game, while third placed Manchester City take on fifth place Manchester United in what will be a key Manchester derby this Saturday lunchtime.

The Premier League is shaping up nicely for the rest of the season, so let’s recap how we got to where we are now by looking back at last weekend’s big results.

Premier League – Matchday 10 Results & Analysis

  • Leicester City 0-2 Arsenal
  • Watford 0-1 Southampton
  • Liverpool 2-2 Brighton
  • Newcastle United 0-3 Chelsea

  • Burnley 3-1 Brentford
  • Tottenham 0-3 Manchester United
  • Norwich City 1-2 Leeds United
  • Aston Villa 1-4 West Ham United
  • Wolves 2-1 Everton

These results saw Chelsea extend their lead in the table to three points over Liverpool, who are now two ahead of Manchester City and West Ham.

There is then a three-point gap to Manchester United and Arsenal, with Wolves and Brighton a further point behind.

At the foot of the table, Norwich and Newcastle remain without a win with the Canaries bottom of the table two points behind the Magpies, while Burnley lie in the final relegation place, three points behind Leeds United, Watford and Aston Villa.

Brentford and Everton have hit a sticky patch losing all of their last three, while Arsenal are unbeaten in seven games and Wolves, Chelsea and West Ham have all won four of their last five matches.

Only Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League this season (six wins, four draws). The Reds are also the top goalscorers with 29 goals in their 10 games. Chelsea have the best defensive record with just three goals conceded so far this season.

Mo Salah tops the leading goalscorer charts with 10 Premier League goals this season, three ahead of Jamie Vardy of Leicester and four ahead of Michail Antonio and Sadio Mane.

Premier League Matchday 10 – Preview & Tips

All odds outlined below were correct with bet365 as of 9.30am on Thursday 4th November, but may have changed since. Kick off times are 3pm Saturday or 2pm on Sunday unless otherwise stated.

Friday 5th November

  • Southampton v Aston Villa (8pm)

This weekend’s action begins on Friday night with Southampton taking on Villa. The Villains are in a poor run of form with four defeats in a row, while Southampton are unbeaten in their last three games. With the Saints having home advantage too, this should be an opportunity for them to claim points and move up the table. Tip – Southampton 1-0 Aston Villa – 8/1.

Saturday 6th November

  • Manchester United v Manchester City (12.30pm)

Saturday begins with a massive Manchester derby as City take on United at Old Trafford with both teams knowing a win is a must for them to keep up the pressure at the top of the table. City got back to winning ways in midweek at home to Club Brugge, while United earned a last gasp draw away at Atalanta. Away teams have had the better of this game over the last few years, so I am backing City to get the better of this one. Tip – Manchester United 1-3 Manchester City – 12/1.

  • Chelsea v Burnley

You would expect Chelsea to come away with a solid win here. After games against the bottom three one after the other, the Londoners have so far scored 10 goals without conceding and it is hard to see Burnley denting that record at Stamford Bridge. This should be a comfortable afternoon for the Londoners. Tip – Chelsea 3-0 Burnley – 7/1

  • Crystal Palace v Wolves

Two teams that have shown some real improvements of late clash at Selhurst Park in what should be a cracking game. I like the way Palace are developing under Patrick Vieira and the ex-Arsenal man is getting the most from Wilfried Zaha. Wolves though are unbeaten in their last four games so I can’t see them being a pushover here. As such a draw looks likely. Tip – Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolves – 11/2.

  • Brentford v Norwich City

Norwich may be bottom but they have a better record than Brentford over their last three games. That’s not saying much though as the Bees have lost all three of those games. I expect them to bounce back here though against a Norwich side that have conceded 25 goals so far this season, scoring just three. This should be a solid home win. Tip – Brentford 2-0 Norwich City – 13/2.

  • Brighton v Newcastle United (5.30pm)

Brighton have enjoyed a superb start to the season whereas Newcastle have enjoyed a torrid start and with no new manager in sight as yet, it is hard to see the Magpies getting anything from this long trip to the South Coast. Brighton earned a great point away to Liverpool last weekend and if they can pick up three points here, as I feel they will, it will have been a great week for Graham Potter’s team. Tip – Brighton 2-1 Newcastle United – 8/1.

Sunday 7th November

  • Everton v Tottenham

Three defeats in three has seen Everton drop into mid-table and the pressure is mounting on Rafa Benitez to turn things around. He faces a tough task against Spurs and their new manager Antonio Conte, who will want to see a big improvement from his new team after their loss last week to Manchester United. I think he may well get it too as he won’t accept anything less than 100% from all Spurs players here. Tip – Everton 0-2 Tottenham – 12/1.

  • Leeds United v Leicester City

Leeds are one place above the relegation zone despite a win over Norwich City last weekend, so they do need to start picking up more points. Leicester City have proven to be frustratingly inconsistent as their loss last weekend to Arsenal shows. However, the Foxes do have some real quality in their team and I think that this will be the key to them earning a win here. Tip – Leeds United 1-2 Leicester City – 10/1.

  • Arsenal v Watford

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have gone seven games unbeaten to move from bottom of the table after three games up to sixth. That is a fantastic achievement after a miserable start to the campaign. Watford’s new boss Claudio Ranieri will have his work cut out here if the Hornets are to avoid another defeat, but I don’t think they will. Tip – Arsenal 3-1 Watford – 11/1.

  • West Ham United v Liverpool (4.30pm)

Both these teams have a tricky run of games over the next few weeks, so a win here would be an ideal start to that. The Hammers have done superbly well this season and have proven very tough to beat, but they have struggled at home against the very top sides at times over the last six months or so and with Liverpool in great form, unbeaten this season in all competitions and looking back to their best, I am backing the visitors to come away with the win. Tip – West Ham 0-2 Liverpool – 11/1.
