EPL Preview, Sunday 7 October


There are three English Premier League fixtures taking place on Sunday including the top of the table clash between Liverpool and Man City and we suggest a bet in each of them.


Fulham v Arsenal – click here to bet

Fulham have only taken 2 points from the last 12 they have played for and were hammered 3-0 away at Everton last weekend.  They drew 1-1 with Watford in their last home game.  They face an Arsenal side which has won 5 in a row and that beat Watford 2-0 at home in their last start.  They have also won their last two away matches 2-1 at Newcastle and 3-2 at Cardiff.



Fulham 73/20

Draw 69/20

Arsenal 13/20


Suggested bet:  Over 3.5 goals at 19/20.

Both of these sides look full of goals and I am betting that we get at least 4 in the game.


Southampton v Chelseaclick here to bet

Southampton have only taken 4 points from the last 15 they have played for and they failed to score in their last 2 defeats away at Wolves and Liverpool.  Their last home game was a 2-2 draw with Brighton. They face a Chelsea side which won their first 5 games and have subsequently drawn 2 in a row including conceding a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at home with Liverpool last weekend.



Southampton 9/2

Draw 31/10

Chelsea 6/10


Suggested bet:  Handicap, Southampton (+1), the draw at 27/10.

For this bet to arrive, Chelsea have to win by exactly 1 goal. The bet I give a good chance as they may be slightly jaded from European competition on Thursday night.


Liverpool v Manchester Cityclick here to bet

The clash of the weekend sees second place Liverpool at home to leaders Manchester City.  The teams are both on 19 points from their 7 matches and are separated by goal difference.

Liverpool dropped their first points of the season when they drew 1-1 away at Chelsea last time out and they have yet to concede a goal at home in 3 matches all of which were victories.  City have won 4 games in a row and their last away start was a 5-0 win over Cardiff and they have scored 8 goals on the road and conceded only 1.



Liverpool 31/20

Draw 26/10

Manchester City 17/10


Suggested bet:  First-half, both teams to score, YES, at 24/10.

This is something of a speculative play in a game where I am struggling to pick a winner.  I think we could see an open game with every chance that both teams score before half-time.
