Premier League Gameweek 6 Preview and Tips

Premier League Gameweek 6 Betting Preview

European football kicked off this week, with the first round of Champions League and Europa League group stage fixtures. It’s yet to be seen how the added games will affect the Premier League’s elite, as a mixed set of midweek results. Manchester United and Liverpool will understandably be coming into the game positively, but for Spurs and Manchester City, there is a bit more pressure. For the rest of the Premier League, it’s been a week of normal preparation, so there is no excuse for poor performances. Read on for Bet UK’s Premier League betting preview for gameweek 6.

Bet UK’s Boosts have boosted a 3:00pm treble this week. Man United, Bournemouth and Liverpool all to win, boosted from 7/2 to 4/1*.

Fulham v Watford - Saturday 22nd September at 12:30pm

Last time out, Fulham lost 3-0 to Manchester City as they tried to match the Citizens toe to toe. Rather than sit back and try and hit City on the counter, Fulham played their normal game and ended up paying the price for it. The Cottagers didn’t really test City’s defence and ended up lucky to keep the score at 3. In truth, they would not have expected to win this game, so will be focusing their efforts on their game against Watford.

Watford’s unbeaten start to the season came to and end at Manchester United. It was a game of two halves as Manchester United raced into a 2-0 lead before half time. In the second half, Watford were much improved. An Andre Gray goal gave Watford hope of a late equaliser, but a couple of David de Gea saves kept them at bay. The Hornets will look to bounce back this weekend and try to keep their strong start to the season alive.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Both teams are free flowing, attacking sides, so we expect a lot of goals. Bet UK’s online sportsbook currently offers odds of 39/20* for over 3.5 goals during the match. We also have a Bet UK Boost for Fulham v Watford. Both teams to score, draw and Mitrovic to score anytime was 20/3, boosted to 7/1*.

Burnley FC v Bournemouth - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Burnley’s poor start to the season continued at Wolves last weekend. A Raul Jimenez goal the only goal scored, but Wolves had enough chances to score more. Burnley started the game with Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes up top, but both were withdrawn as they proved ineffective. Even without European football to contend with, Burnley just don’t look good enough this season. A home tie against Bournemouth is a good opportunity to get some points on the board.

Bournemouth stunned Leicester with a 4-2 victory last time out, although the heavy scoreline doesn’t tell the whole story. In the first half, Leicester had a few chances, but devastating counter attacks gave Bournemouth a 3-0 lead going into half time. Adam Smith made it 4-0 late on, as Bournemouth cruised to another 3 points. Eddie Howe will be disappointed not to keep a clean sheet, with 2 late Leicester goals spoiling a perfect day on the south coast.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Burnley will attack this game and go for the 3 points, but their defence hasn’t been up to scratch so far. Bournemouth to win and both teams to score is 33/10* with Bet UK’s sports betting.

Cardiff City v Manchester City - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Cardiff’s early goal at Stamford Bridge was quickly forgotten about after Eden Hazard’s hattrick. The Bluebirds are still looking for their first win of the season, but no one expected that to come at Chelsea. They can take some positives from the game however. Cardiff defended well, despite conceding 4 goals. Eden Hazard was simply unstoppable and Willian’s long range effort was never going to be saved. Against weaker opposition, Cardiff should be able to keep them at bay.

Pep Guardiola and Manchester City will be on a mission to prove their doubters wrong after a 2-1 defeat to Lyon. The Citizens were poor in the midweek fixtures, although they didn’t have Guardiola on the sideline to guide them. Against Fulham last weekend, they were much more dominant. Their performance was similar to how they played last season. Sergio Aguero is a doubt, but with Leroy Sane now off the mark, they still have more than enough firepower.

Bet UK’s Prediction

We expect Manchester City to come out with all guns blazing at the Cardiff City Stadium. Bet UK’s offers football betting odds of 6/1* for Manchester City to win 3-0.

Crystal Palace v Newcastle United - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Wilfried Zaha’s return inspired Palace to a 1-0 win at Huddersfield last weekend. After a couple of disappointing performances, Zaha made a huge difference to Roy Hodgson's side. After the game, Zaha complained that he wasn’t getting fair treatment from referees. He even told reporters he would have to break his leg before the other player got sent off. It remains to be seen whether or not his comments will have an effect, but expect him to be targeted again against Newcastle.

Another week, another 2-1 defeat for Newcastle. Their loss to Arsenal was the 4th time that Newcastle have lost 2-1 in the league this season. Their first half performance against Arsenal was promising. Joselu arguably had the best chance with a near post header that he couldn’t direct goalwards. In the second half however, Newcastle had no intensity and no desire to chase Arsenal down. 2 goals in 10 minutes killed the game, condemning Newcastle to another loss.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Wilfried Zaha will be the difference once again in this game. Bet UK’s Boosts are offering Zaha to score and Crystal Palace to win at 4/1*, boosted from 5/2. Make sure to check out our Bet UK Boosts, with a number of choices for Crystal Palace v Newcastle.

Liverpool v Southampton - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Liverpool look unstoppable this season. Just like Manchester City last year, Liverpool don’t look like anyone can stop them, even French giants PSG. The score might have finished 2-1 at Wembley last week, but it could have been much more. The Reds were completely dominant and a late Spurs push for an equaliser would have been undeserved. Mo Salah might not be as prolific as last year, but Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino continue to impress.

There’s no doubt that Southampton are improving as the season goes on. After a disappointing start, the Saints are starting to improve, particularly on their 17th finish last year. The key to their season will be keeping Danny Ings fit. The striker has already scored 3 times this season, but will be eligible this weekend. The true test will for Southampton this weekend will be how they perform without their new number 9.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Roberto Firmino is getting into his rhythm, with 2 goals in 2 games. Roberto Firmino to score first is 4/1* with Bet UK’s online sports betting.

Leicester City v Huddersfield Town - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Leicester will be looking to bounce back from a shock result at the Vitality Stadium. The scoreline didn’t completely reflect Leicester’s performance. In the first half, Asmir Begovic denied Leicester more than once. The Foxes just couldn’t handle Bournemouth on the counter attack, even before Wes Morgan was dismissed. Without their captain this week, Harry Maguire will be expected to step up even more and marshall his defence.

Huddersfield will be disappointed not to have taken at least a point from their match against Crystal Palace last week. Wilfried Zaha may have been the main talking point of the match, but Huddersfield were on top for large parts. David Wagner will be worried about the quality of their finishing however. From 15 shots, just 2 troubled Wayne Hennessey in the Palace net. After just 2 goals in 5 games, it looks like a theme that could carry on this season.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Leicester will be looking to bounce back, and their defence should hold up against Huddersfield’s forward line. Leicester to win to nil is 27/20* on Bet UK’s online sportsbook.

Manchester United v Wolves - Saturday 22nd September at 3:00pm

Manchester United fans were calling for Jose Mourinho to be sacked earlier this season, but they will undoubtedly be much happier after recent results. A 2-1 win at unbeaten Watford followed by a 3-0 win in the Champions League is enough to help Mourinho win back some supporters. At Vicarage Road, Manchester United fully deserved their early 2-0 win. The second half was more difficult with Watford coming into the game. United defended well though, even after the late dismissal of Nemanja Matic, who will miss this weekend’s game.

Wolves were one of the most impressive sides in the league last weekend. 90 minutes of dominance wasn’t reflected in the 1-0 scoreline, with Wolves missing plenty of good opportunities. Wolves ended the match with nearly 60% possession and 30 shots, but only 7 on target. Raul Jimenez grabbed another goal, but he will need help from midfield is Wolves are too continue their good run on Saturday.

Bet UK’s Prediction

We expect Manchester United to carry on their good form, but expect Wolves to put up a fight. Manchester United to win 2-1 is 8/1* at Bet UK’s online sportsbook.

Brighton v Tottenham Hotspur - Saturday 22nd September at 5:30pm

Glenn Murray just can’t stop scoring for Brighton at the minute. His late minute penalty at St Mary’s completed Brighton’s comeback from 2 goals down and grab a point. After what appears to be a strong start to the season, Brighton somehow find themselves in 14th place, with 5 points. They look more prepared for Premier League football this season however, so don’t expect them to hang around the bottom of the table for long.

After their loss to Inter Milan during the week, Tottenham are on a 3 game losing streak. Their main problem seems to be Harry Kane, who has looked tired this season. The World Cup Golden Boot winner has only scored twice this season, a very low return given his recent standards. There have been calls for the England star to be dropped and given a chance to recover. But with only Fernando Llorente fit to replace him, we can expect to see Kane up to again this weekend.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Following on from his rich vein of form, Glenn Murray will be hoping to score against a shaky Spurs’ defence. Glenn Murray to score anytime is 13/5* with Bet UK’s sports betting.

West Ham v Chelsea - Sunday 23rd September at 1:30pm

West Ham grabbed a first win of the season at Goodison Park, impressively winning 3-1. Andriy Yarmolenko shined in his first start in the season, netting 2 first half strikes. Marko Arnautovic added a first in the second half to kill the game off and stop any chance of an Everton comeback. Manuel Pellegrini may have finally found his best starting XI, which now surely includes Yarmolenko.

Chelsea rose to the top of the Premier League thanks to Eden Hazard’s hattrick against Chelsea. The Belgian’s goals drew praise from all corners of the footballing world, with his own manager saying he could score over 30 goals this season. Hazard often has inconsistent seasons, but it look like this is the year that he will truly shine. Against Cardiff, a Willian strike from 25 yards add the final touch on the match. Chelsea’s squad have adapted perfectly to Sarri’s new tactics and they look like title challengers again this year.

Bet UK’s Prediction

West Ham might have found a new wave of optimism, but a game against Chelsea should bring them back down to earth. Chelsea to win and over 2.5 goals is 23/20 with Bet UK’s online sports betting.

Arsenal v Everton - Sunday 23rd September at 4:00pm

Arsenal won back to back away games for the first time this year with their 2-1 success at Newcastle. The Gunners didn’t look entirely convincing, but no one will be complaining after a win. Granit Xhaka’s long range free kick just after the break gave Arsenal the lift they need to push on for the win. Mesut Ozil scored a close range effort 10 minutes later was enough for the 3 points as Arsenal cruised to the win.

Everton fans will be disappointed after their loss to West Ham, especially after the early season optimism that surrounded Goodison Park. This was the first game that Everton had lost this season, following 1 win and 3 draws. Marco Silva’s side seem incapable of finishing teams off, but the return of Richarlison should help. Cenk Tosun has hardly been in inspiring form in Richarlison’s absence, so expect to see him dropped to the bench.

Bet UK’s Prediction

Both teams should have an attacking threat, but the home advantage will pay off. Arsenal to win and both teams to score is 5/4* with Bet UK’s online sportsbook.
