Premier League tips for August 19-21

FootyOn writers pick out Premier League tips for August 19-21, one enticing odds-against price for each matchweek 2 fixture of the 2017/18 season.

The opening round of matches provided plenty of entertainment and drama with controversy and goals galore already.

So, read on for our Premier League tips for August 19-21…

Saturday

LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Swansea City v Manchester United (12:30)

The Swans have a great recent record against the Red Devils, having only lost two of their last six meetings with them. However, unfortunately for them, they’ve just sold key man Gylfi Sigurdsson and striker Fernando Llorente is still not fit. Back Romelu Lukaku to be on target after his debut brace last week.

Chosen bet: Lukaku to score first
Best price: 3/1 with Paddy Power

Bournemouth v Watford (15:00)

Incredibly, these two teams have drawn in each their last four, and six of their last seven duels. Do we need to say anymore?

Chosen bet: Draw
Best price: 11/4 with betway

Burnley v West Bromwich Albion (15:00)

The Clarets and Baggies are not really known to be goalscoring teams, yet in their last six meetings they’ve managed to net a combined four in each. Back that many or more again.

Chosen bet: Total match goals over 3.5
Best price: 4/1 with BetVictor

Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion (15:00)

Both Leicester and Brighton were unlucky to lose their their season openers against Arsenal and Man City respectively. The Foxes fared better away at the Emirates, scoring three times, though.

Chosen bet: Leicester to win and both teams to score
Best price: 11/4 with BetVictor

Liverpool v Crystal Palace (15:00)

Palace may have lost their first fixture, but Liverpool could only draw with Watford. And, intriguingly, the away side has won the last six times they have played each other.

Chosen bet: Palace to win
Best price: 17/2 with Paddy Power

Klopp has managed to get the best out of his star man since arriving on the scene.

How will Klopp’s Coutinho-less men cope against bogey side Palace?

Southampton v West Ham United (15:00)

Due to the recent London World Athletics Championships, the Hammers have to play a second successive away fixture, which couldn’t come at a worse time after their 4-0 hammering to Man Utd last Sunday. The Saints should edge this after drawing to Swansea.

Chosen bet: Southampton to win by 1 goal
Best price: 12/5 with Paddy Power

LIVE on BT Sport: Stoke City v Arsenal (17:30)

The Gunners fired four past Leicester in matchweek 1, the same number they managed against Stoke in this fixture last season.

Chosen bet: Total Arsenal goals over 2.5
Best price: 11/4 with BetVictor

Sunday

LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Huddersfield Town v Newcastle United (13:30)

In the battle between newly-promoted teams, it’s the Terriers who go into it as slight match favourites, after downing Palace 3-0 in their PL debut. Toon lost 2-0 to Spurs, after stand-in skipper Jonjo Shelvey was sent off.

Chosen bet: Huddersfield to win
Best price: 6/4 with betway

LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Tottenham v Chelsea (16:00)

Spurs and Chelsea lock horns in the first clash between two of the top six English clubs, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men face the Blues at a great time. After losing to Burnley, with captain Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas sent off, back Harry Kane to punish them.

Chosen bet: Kane/Spurs in a score/win double
Best price: 7/4 with Sky Bet

Monday

LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Manchester City v Everton (20:00)

The Toffees have impressed so far this term in the Europa League and PL with their new-look team, and are more than capable of causing City problems after drawing with them at the Etihad the last two seasons.

Chosen bet: Draw
Best price: 17/4 with Sky Bet
