Brighton will be frustrated after being beaten comfortably at Brentford on Friday night. They’ve lost two in a row and they’re winless in three.

Nottingham Forest are becoming the Premier League whipping boys. They haven’t won in eight games. They’ve lost their last three away games, scoring none and conceding 11 times.

I like Brighton To Win in comfortable fashion and Leandro Trossard to Score Anytime. He destroyed Liverpool at Anfield a couple of weeks ago and I’m expecting him to shine again.

Wednesday 8:15pm: Man Utd v Tottenham

TV: Amazon Prime

Manchester United didn’t play well against Newcastle last weekend and they could have lost at Old Trafford. They’ve won five of their last seven which is impressive form for United.

However, Tottenham look great. Their form is even better with Antonio Conte’s men winning 2-0 against Everton last weekend. Harry Kane is on fire and he’s scored in his last five games.

I’m going with Tottenham To Win but I also like Both Teams To Score. I fancy Spurs to edge a tight one at Old Trafford.

I’m also on Harry Kane to Score Anytime. Him and Erling Haaland have both been sensational so far this season and the Spurs hitman can bag his sixth goal in as many games.

Thursday 8:15pm: Leicester v Leeds

TV: Amazon Prime

Nothing seems to be going right for Leeds at the moment and Leicester aren’t much better! They’ve won just one Premier League game this season but I fancy them to edge a tight game.

It’s going to be a scrappy and cagey game but I’m going with Leicester to Win and Both Teams to Score.

I would have gone with James Maddison to Score Anytime but he’s suspended after picking up a booking for a silly dive against Crystal Palace last weekend.

Instead, I’ll go for Harvey Barnes to Score Anytime. He’s already got a couple of Premier League goals this season including that fine strike in their win against Nottingham Forest a couple of weeks ago.

Phil Thompson’s Premier League best bets:

Tuesday 7:30pm: Brighton v Nottingham Forest
Brighton to Win
Leandro Trossard to Score Anytime

Wednesday 8:15pm: Man Utd v Tottenham
Tottenham to Win
Both Teams to Score
Harry Kane to Score Anytime

Thursday 8:15pm: Leicester v Leeds

Both Teams to Score
