So, read on for our Premier League tips for September 15-17…
LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Bournemouth v Brighton (20:00)
Eddie Howe’s Cherries are only one of two Prem sides yet to earn a single point this season after four games.
However, back them to bag a point, as three of the last six clashes between the sides have ended 1-1.
Chosen bet: Draw 1-1
Best price: 11/2 with BetVictor
LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Crystal Palace v Southampton (12:30)
Following the sacking of Frank de Boer after only four games in charge, Palace fans will be hoping for some respite from the consecutive losses with Roy Hodgson now at the helm.
However, the Saints have beaten them three of the last four meetings by two or more goals.
Chosen bet: Two-goal winning margin (for any team)
Best price: 10/3 with BetVictor
Huddersfield Town v Leicester City (15:00)
The Foxes have dominated this fixture over the last two decades, winning seven of the last nine.
However, the Terriers have looked terrific this season and will meet a fellow high-octane outfit this weekend.
Chosen bet: Draw
Best price: 23/10 with betway
West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United (15:00)
The last three games between these two have resulted in three or more goals in each meeting.
Combine this with the fact the Baggies are coming off a four-goal thriller and the Hammers being involved in three matches that saw over three or more goals scored against them, we look set for a cracker.
Chosen bet: West Brom win and over 2.5 total goals
Best price: 10/3 with betway
Liverpool v Burnley (15:00)
The Reds have won five of the last six clashes with the Clarets.
However, don’t expect Liverpool to shut out Burnley like they have done in six of their last seven wins over the Turf Moor side, as Jurgen Klopp’s defence looks as shambolic as ever.
Chosen bet: Liverpool win and both teams score
Best price: 19/10 with betway
Watford v Manchester City (15:00)
City are unbeaten against the Hornets in 11 fixtures, a run stretching back to 1997.
Pep Guardiola’s men dismantled 10-man Liverpool last weekend, but under Marco Silva’s Watford look hugely improved.
The Hornets are unbeaten in the league and City recently struggled against Bournemouth.
Chosen bet: Draw/Draw in half-time/full-time market
Best price: 8/1 with BetVictor
Newcastle United v Stoke City (15:00)
Mark Hughes’ Potters have had an excellent start to their season despite some testing fixtures, beating Arsenal and most recently earning a draw against Manchester United.
Stoke are unbteen in five against the Magpies, three wins of which have been 1-0.
Chosen bet: Stoke to win 1-0
Best price: 8/1 with BetVictor
LIVE on BT Sport 1: Tottenham v Swansea City (17:30)
The Swans haven’t beaten Spurs since 1991 – that’s 13 meetings.
Spurs will be keen to banish their Wembley hoodoo, but don’t expect it to be pretty.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men may be tired after their Champions League exploits.
Chosen bet: Spurs to win by 1 goal
Best price: 13/5 with Paddy Power
LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Chelsea v Arsenal (13:30)
Never more than a game away from a crisis, the Gunners will need to be at their best to get anything from the Blues.
Expect Arsenal to impress in the first-half, but Antonio Conte’s men to regroup and come out on top in the second.
Chosen bet: Arsenal/Chelsea in half-time/full-time market
Best price: 25/1 with BetVictor
LIVE on Sky Sports PL and Main Event: Manchester United v Everton (16:00)
Man Utd are undefeated in the league this term and have been in superb scoring form.
Their new forward Romelu Lukaku has scored four in as many league games this term and is coming off scoring on his first Champions League group game midweek.
Back him to net against his former employers, a side that may be tired after their Thursday night Europa League exploits.
Chosen bet: Lukaku to score two or more
Best price: 4/1 with Paddy Power
