This weekend we see one of the big London derby games of the season in the Premier League as Tottenham host Chelsea at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, hoping to become the first team this season to get the better of their London rivals.

A defeat last weekend to Crystal Palace saw Spurs drop from top of the EPL table to seventh, while Chelsea moved joint second in the table with Liverpool, only behind Manchester United on goals scored, and ahead of Everton on goal difference, all four teams having amassed 10 points.

So this week’s game is a massive one for both teams as they seek to cement what has been a solid start to the Premier League season so far and of course, there are going to be plenty of punters interested in a wager on the game.

EPL Matchday 5 Fixtures

All kick off times are 3pm unless stated.

Friday 17th September

  • Newcastle United v Leeds United (8pm)

It’s fair to say that both these teams have not enjoyed positive starts to the season, but I also feel both have shown enough quality to dig themselves out of the situation they find themselves in. Leeds have looked susceptible defensively and as a result, I think that they may struggle here against a Newcastle side that I think are overdue a win.

Correct Score Tip – Newcastle United 2-1 Leeds United – 11/1

Saturday 18th September

  • Wolves v Brentford (12.30pm)

Last week, I’d have probably plumped for the draw in this game given the start of the season both teams have endured, but I think a big win for Wolves, plus defeat for Brentford last week does change things here and I am expecting the talented Wolves side to be able to pick up another three points here, although I can’t see this being a particularly high scoring game.

Correct Score Tip – Wolves 1-0 Brentford – 5/1

  • Norwich City v Watford

Norwich are the only team in the Premier League without a point so far, but they have had a very tough start to the season and I think they will have earmarked this game as one to get off the mark in. Watford started the season well but were well beaten last week, but I think the Hornets will do enough to grab a share of the spoils in what should be an entertaining game between the two.

Correct Score Tip – Norwich City 2-2 Watford – 16/1

  • Burnley v Arsenal

Arsenal picked up a much-needed win last weekend at home to Norwich and I think they can build on that here against a Burnley side that have netted just one point so far this season. The Gunners kept a clean sheet last week and if they can do that here against Burnley, I fancy them to steal a goal on the break and land the victory that will move them up the table.

Correct Score Tip – Burnley 0-1 Arsenal – 7/1

  • Manchester City v Southampton

Manchester City came through a tough test in the Champions League in midweek, beating Red Bull Leipzig 6-3, but I think they should have things more their own way against a Southampton side who have struggled for victories this season but who have managed a draw against Manchester United. I can’t see them getting anything here though in what should be a very solid and convincing win for City.

Correct Score Tip – Manchester City 4-0 Southampton – 9/1

  • Liverpool v Crystal Palace

A great performance in midweek in the Champions League has Liverpool ready for this game against one of the sides they have had a few problems with in the past. Palace also won last week, but I think facing Spurs at home with 10 men for most of the game is very different to Liverpool away and as such, I am backing the home team to get the job done here.

Correct Score Tip – Liverpool 2-0 Crystal Palace – 6/1

  • Aston Villa v Everton (5.30pm)

The final game on Saturday night sees Everton heading to the midlands to take on a Villa side that I think have invested their cash from the sale of Jack Grealish well. Everton have started the season in good form though and I think will be hard to beat here, but I am confident that Villa can pick up something from the game especially if their English strike force of Ings and Watkins can start firing.

Correct Score Tip – Aston Villa 1-1 Everton – 11/2

Sunday 19th September

  • Brighton v Leicester City (2pm)

Brighton’s start to the season has been superb and they rightfully sit in amongst the big boys at the top of the table, but I feel that they are going to have their work cut out to land a win here. Leicester have lost to West Ham and Man City so far this season, but I can’t see the Foxes slipping up on the road here and I am backing them to earn a valuable and comfortable win.

Correct Score Tip – Brighton 0-2 Leicester City – 14/1

  • West Ham v Manchester United (2pm)

West Ham have been one of the top teams over the last six months or so in the Premier League and they are going to be a very big test for a Manchester United side coming into this game on the back of a rare defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday. Even so, with Ronaldo and co available, I’d still expect United to get the job done and land the win here.

Correct Score Tip – West Ham 1-3 Manchester United – 14/1

  • Tottenham v Chelsea (4.30pm)

The big game on Sunday sees two London rivals Chelsea and Spurs battle it out at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Chelsea have the benefit of two days extra rest ahead of this game and Spurs are likelyt o be without their first choice centre backs, plus key attacker Son. As such, I think all the signs point to a Chelsea victory here.

Correct Score Tip – Tottenham 0-2 Chelsea – 15/2
