Burnley v Chelsea: Chelsea to win – 1/3
Despite needing a late Ross Barkley strike to get them out of jail and having their assistant manager in the headlines against Man United, Chelsea has been smoothly going about their business this season.
The Blues sit just five points off leaders Liverpool, with a game in hand and travel to what has become a happy hunting ground for them at Turf Moor on Sunday. Frustratingly for Sean Dyche and Burnley, they have never beaten Chelsea at home in the Premier League era.
As for The Clarets, they have failed to live up to last year’s vintage so far and still seem drowsy for their early start to the season in the Europa League, with only eight points from nine games in the Premier League.
Burnley’s topsy-turvy form and Chelsea excellent record at Turf Moor have us leaning one way and we’re not Sarri to say it’s the Blues to win at 1/3.
Crystal Palace v Arsenal: Arsenal to win to nil – 13/5
If you were playing bingo you’ll often hear the cry of ‘legs 11, double one’ and Unai Emery has all of Arsenal’s limbs moving in the right direction as his side picked up their 11th win on the bounce on Thursday night against Sporting CP in the Europa League.
That stunning form is in stark contrast to their opponents on Sunday Crystal Palace, who come into the contest after three defeats in-a-row. Roy Hodgson looks to have another relegation battle on his hands, with his outfit only netting seven points from their nine league games to date.
With current leaders Liverpool due at the Emirates next week, Emery will be looking to get the job done efficiently here and will be encouraged by the fact that the Eagles have only snatched a single goal in their talons in their last four matches.
That stat is very hard for us to ignore and we’re tipping The Gunners will fire themselves to a 13/5 win to nil at Selhurst Park.
Man United v Everton: Man United to win with both teams to score – 12/5
Whereas before you’d always expect Old Trafford to be rocking, that shaking must seem like quicksand under Jose Mourinho’s feet at the moment. Juventus eased their way to three Champions League points there on Tuesday and Everton will be no pushovers on Sunday either.
There no doubt The Toffees could prove to be sticky opposition for Mourinho’s men as they’ve won their last pair of Premier League outings, while the home outfit only have one victory in their last seven. So, it’s plain to see why there is such a sense of unease amongst the United faithful.
The one thing The Red Devils can lean on is that they do boast an impressive record in recent times over Everton, beating them home and away last season.
You’d expect it to be a nervy, techy affair and we foresee United getting a scare from Marco Silva’s men. That’s why we’re betting on a Man United victory with both teams finding the net at 12/5.
