Tottenham Hotspur FC vs West Bromwich Albion
Two in-form and attacking-wise uber-efficient sides go head-to-head at White Hart Lane in what is set to be a pulsating encounter. Tony Pulis and his sides are normally known for its defensive solidity but, at Hawthorns, he is starting to show a different side to his tactics.
The spotlight will be on Dele Alli and Matt Phillips, two players who seem to be driving their respective sides forward.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 2.25
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.80

4. Tottenham Asian Handicap Cards +1 @ 1.90
1. Salomon Rondon to score anytime @ 4.75
2. Matt Phillips to score anytime @ 9.00
Leicester City FC vs Chelsea FC
The Foxes seem to have turned a leaf after a disastrous start to the season as defending champions. Add to that the signing of Ndidi, billed as the next N’Golo Kante, for the similarity in playing style, combined with Chelsea’s defeat at the hands of Tottenham and the fixture does not look as straight forward as it looked, perhaps a month ago.
Islam Slimani has shown that he has what it takes to take the mantle over from Jamie Vardy, who has looked a distant shadow of himself, but the player is now away at AFCoN, which gives the Englishman a chance to regain his lost place.
Ranieri has shown during the Middlesbrough game that he is ready to set up shop and be content with a point rather than face the prospect of losing, but the Foxes’ fans would be hopeful they see a result similar to the one against Manchester City a few matches prior.
1. Over 1.5 Chelsea cards @ 1.72
2. Chelsea Asian Handicap Corners – 2 @ 1.875
1. Full Time Result – Draw @ 4.10
Swansea City FC vs Arsenal FC
Paul Clement has arrived at Swansea and has already made a statement signing in Luciano Narsingh from PSV. The player is consistent with bursts of magic in him, which is what necessary for Swansea to come out of the relegation places. The Swans had produced a fighting display under Bob Bradley at Emirates, losing by a scoreline of 3-2.
Clement would be looking to reverse the scoreline as he sets up his side against Arsene Wenger. One doesn’t know what to expect from Clement’s first game in charge and he may well try to get a defensively solid display under his belt to gain some confidence or might just go all out for a win and a statement of intent.
1. Arsenal Asian Handicap Corners – 1.5 @ 1.80
1. Swansea Draw No Bet @ 4.50
Everton FC vs Manchester City FC
Everton have produced some brilliant displays against Manchester City in the recent times and given the Toffees’ current run of form, they could be set to provide another harsh awakening for Pep Guardiola and the City project.
Manchester City have struggled, but a battling 2-1 win against Burnley, despite going down to 10 men, could prove to be the turning point. Everton’s midfield has been bolstered by the addition of Morgan Schneiderlin and he would hope to inflict some damage on his former club’s neighbours.
1. Everton Asian Handicap +0.5,1.0 @ 1.850
2. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.66
3. Over 10.5 Corners @ 1.80
4. Manchester City Asian Handicap Cards +0.5 @ 1.80
1. Ross Barkley to score anytime @ 4.00
Manchester United FC vs Liverpool FC
A fixture that seems skewed a bit towards Manchester United despite Liverpool being higher up the table, only because of the recent contrasting runs. Also, Sadio Mane’s absence is likely to affect Liverpool more than Bailly’s absence in the back four for Manchester United.
Liverpool’s attack has looked toothless in the absence of the former Southampton man and Manchester United, being one of the few teams to hold Liverpool to 0 goals in ninety minutes of football, could very well be set to repeat their feat.
And the form table suggests they can go one better than their battling Anfield draw. The Zlatan-Pogba combination has really come to the fore while Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s rise to form has really made the Red Devils look like the team everyone thought they were capable of being.
1. Manchester United to win @ 2.15
2. Over 1.5 Manchester United goals @ 2.00
3. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.00
1. Manchester United Clean Sheet – YES @ 2.75
