The best best for the five live games as the Premier League swings back into action
Finally we’ve got to the end of silly season of mind-boggling rumours and ridiculous transfer videos – Stormzy, we’re looking at you. The Premier League is back and to celebrate we’ve taken four of our pundits and got their TV tips off them to get us through to Monday night. Andy Gray, Paddy Power, one of our PP football traders and our mathematically gifted super-computer (CARL) are here to hopefully point you in the direction of a few winners.
There’s consensus from everyone that Leicester will sweep aside a Hull team in turmoil on Saturday, before Manchester City under Pep Guardiola see of Sunderland that evening. All four pundits also fancy Manchester United and new gaffer jose Mourinho to see off Bournemouth away on Sunday, before some disagreement in the main slobber-knocker of the weekend. Paddy fancies Arsenal to do the business at home, while our PP trader, KARL and Andy Gray are backing Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side to nick a point from the Emirates. On Monday night there was almost complete agreement that Antonio Conte will get Chelsea off to a winning start at home to West Ham – but the PP trader isn’t convinced and thinks the Hammers might sneak a point at the Bridge.
The accumulator on Leicester, Man City, man United, a draw in Arsenal v Liverpool and Chelsea pays out at a mighty tasty 24/1.
Football is back. And we love it!
