Watford vs Liverpool
We start our weekend preview in North London as Liverpool head to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. Currently sitting 15th in the table, The Hornets have experienced a mixed start to the season with two wins and a draw from seven games. What's worth noting is that they've lost their last two games, and it's something Jurgen Klopp will be looking to capitalise on. Liverpool head into this game with a full contingent of players in strong form, including Diogo Jota and Mo Salah. Drawing with Manchester City just before the international break and Brentford just a week before, Klopp will be hoping to get three points on the board against a struggling Watford side. With that in mind, we're going for a Liverpool win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
Brentford vs Chelsea
Both Brentford and Chelsea have started the season strongly, but the Blues currently sit at the top of the Premier League table. New boys Brentford have caused some surprises by defeating Arsenal and drawing with Liverpool, and they could have another Premier League big name in their sights this weekend. On the other hand, Chelsea will be hoping to continue their winning streak after a comprehensive defeat of Southampton just two weeks ago. Timo Werner managed to get on the scoresheet in that game, and he's continued that form during the international break with two goals against North Macedonia, so we're betting on him to do it again here.
Everton vs West Ham
Under the guidance of Rafael Benitez, Everton currently sit fifth in the Premier League and should still be in a buoyant mood following a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at Old Trafford. Playing host to West Ham at Goodison, who themselves have also enjoyed a fruitful start to the season, it could be an interesting game where we could see goals. Benitez will be dealt an injury blow with Lucas Digne now out with a pulled hamstring after featuring for France. It could be a tight game between both sides, and with that in mind, we're going for a draw and BTTS.
Newcastle vs Tottenham
It's all change at Newcastle United now their new owners have taken control of the club, and many fans will expect a reaction from the players when Spurs visit St James' Park on Sunday. Many players should have a point to prove, with the Magpies sitting second from bottom in the table. For Spurs, it's been a season of mixed performances. However, they seem to pick up three points when they normally visit the northeast, and Harry Kane likes to get himself on the scoresheet. With that in mind, we're going for a Spurs win but with BTTS.
Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
Arsenal seem to have turned their season around despite their poor start and have seemingly given Mikel Arteta a stay of execution. The Gunners host Crystal Palace in Monday night football, and in a normal season, this wouldn’t be a mid-table clash. However, this time around, it is. A win for either side would boost them up the table, but with Palace drawing their last two fixtures with Brighton and Leicester, we're going for a win for the home side. That said, our main bet is who will be getting on the scoresheet and given his recent form, we're going with Emile Smith Rowe to find the back of the net once again.
