Chelsea to add to Rafa’s Blues

Rafa Benitez

Saturday sees eight Premier League games in total and it could be another cracking day of top flight football.

It should be three points for Chelsea in the lunchtime kick-off when Newcastle come to town. Rafael Benitez famously won the Europa League during a short spell in charge of Chelsea during the 2012-13 campaign but is unlikely to cause an upset on his return to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea beat Swansea in midweek and, with Newcastle not winning in five, a home win to zero looks likely at 20/23.

Of the 3pm games, Everton’s 5/7 to beat Huddersfield seems nailed on. The Toffees smashed West Ham 4-0 on Wednesday and with Sam Allardyce now in charge, they should make light work of the Terriers, who have not scored on the road since the opening weekend.

Elsewhere on Saturday afternoon, goals could be on the agenda at Vicarage Road where Watford welcome Tottenham. Neither have been particularly watertight in recent weeks so this could be an unpredictable clash. Over 3.5 goals could be the answer at 17/10.

It may also be the same case at The Hawthorns, where Alan Pardew takes charge of West Brom for the first time. By a quirk of fate, it will be boyhood club Crystal Palace, who sacked him last December, who he faces.

To add extra irony, former Baggies boss Roy Hodgson will be in the opposite dugout. This could be a good one and again look for over 2.5 goals at 7/5.

Finally, it could be a cracker at the Emirates where Arsenal welcome Manchester United. Arsene Wenger has stated that he does not expect Jose Mourinho to ‘Park the Bus’ but the Portuguese will do anything to win in north London.

A tense affair appears likely but it may well prove to be a disappointing afternoon for both sides, as well as us viewers, and a draw could be on the cards at 23/10.
