Reds ready to extend perfect start


The Premier League continues this weekend and Saturday’s action kicks off with what could be a thriller as Leicester welcome Liverpool to the King Power Stadium.

Liverpool to win and both to score @ 17/10

After losing at Manchester United on the opening night of the campaign, the Foxes have won their subsequent three outings and will be well rested after Claude Puel rotated for Tuesday’s 4-0 EFL Cup win over Fleetwood.

Jamie Vardy serves the final game of his three-match ban and his pace will be a miss against a talented Liverpool side.

Leicester always seem to find a way to score but could be second best against the Reds, who have made a perfect start to the season and Jurgen Klopp is likely to stick with the same XI that has served him so well.

Klopp is still to see his side concede this season and, while that record may go, Liverpool look to have too much.

Wolves to win @ 19/10

West Ham are yet to earn a point under Manuel Pellegrini and could struggle at home against Wolves.

The Hammers spent big in the summer but are still to truly gel and were a touch fortunate to beat League One AFC Wimbledon in the EFL Cup.

A lack of defensive cohesion puts more pressure on an attack that could be without talisman Marko Arnautovic after the Austrian limped off last Saturday at Arsenal.

Wolves have two points from three games and claimed a creditable draw against Manchester City last weekend.

There have been over 2.5 goals in all of West Ham’s games this season, an outcome that is 4/5, and their fragility suggests it could be a successful afternoon for Wolves.

Crystal Palace to win @ 20/21

Those eyeing the value should look no further than Crystal Palace to beat Southampton at home.

The Eagles made a winning start at Fulham and, having lost to both Liverpool and Watford, will see this game as the perfect chance to rebuild their confidence.

Mark Hughes must be growing concerned about his Saints side who seem to be suffering from the same lethargy that plagued the team last season and has resulted in them winning only three of their last 28 Premier League games.

The Welshman looks set for another frustrating afternoon, with his side likely to struggle against a dynamic Palace outfit.

Manchester City v Newcastle – Over 3.5 goals @ 10/11

The late game comes from the Etihad where Manchester City welcome Newcastle. Spanish coaches Pep Guardiola and Rafael Benitez may share their nationality but the similarities end there.

Guardiola’s men are expected to dominate and 1/10 for the home win tells its own story against a Magpies side who have shown plenty of spirit in defeats to Tottenham and Chelsea, but only have a solitary point from a draw against Cardiff to show for their efforts.

City had to settle for a draw at Wolves last weekend and host a Newcastle side who are again likely to set up to defend well again.

After City hit Huddersfield for six in their opening home game of the campaign, expect goals to be the answer again here.
