After a poor offering last weekend, this week’s edition of Super Sunday promises a hell of a lot more – on paper at least.
The early kick-off sees an under-performing Everton host a resurgent West Ham at Goodison Park, that’s followed later by an intriguing clash on the south coast as Southampton take on Chelsea at St Mary’s.
With a couple of combative ties in store for Sunday, we’ve come up with a delightful double that could land for our punters at a nifty 13/1.
After an impressive start to the season, the wheels seem to have come off the wagon recently for Ronald Koeman.
The Dutch supremo’s honeymoon period looks well and truly over as his Toffees find themselves without a victory in five games. Everton seem utterly luckless at the moment and that was never more evident than in last week’s defeat away at Burnley, where they totally dominated proceedings only to concede a 90th minute winner to the Clarets.
Sunday’s opponents West Ham make the trip to Mersyside having finally turned the corner on a poor opening period. Wednesday night’s home win against Chelsea may have been marred by events off the pitch, but on it the Hammers picked up their third success in-a-row.
The contest also see two of the league’s top scorers face-off, as Romelu Lukaku (six) takes on West Ham’s Michail Antonio who’s got five to his name. looks tasty value for the big Belgian Lukaku to plunder the first strike on Sunday, while Antonio is always worth an anytime goal punt given his aerial prowess.
Three of the last five meetings of these sides has ended level, and we think that’s how Sunday’s will end as well at .
Neutrals will view Chelsea as favourites for this one and so do our traders at , but recent contests show that there isn’t much at all between these two.
In Premier League points terms, both Southampton and Chelsea have taken four points apiece from their last four games against each other. Having swapped away successes last campaign, the clubs also traded draws the previous season – see we told you it was tight!
Southampton were able to rest a lot of their front line performers in midweek as they progressed to the EFL Cup quarter finals, Chelsea on the other hand were pressed into using some of their main men as they were dumped out by West Ham.
A fresher Saints outfit look a bit overpriced at , and may well be worth a value play for Sunday’s showdown.
But, we just can’t separate these two ahead of the match and the draw, which can be found at , tickles our fancy the most to complete our deadly double.
