In-form Reds can frustrate Pep

486

Two of the Premier League title contenders, Manchester City and Liverpool, meet in a heavyweight clash on Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds have been the more impressive side in the opening month of the season but they have the same number of points (seven) as Pep Guardiola’s side, who needed a last-gasp Raheem Sterling goal to see off Bournemouth last time out.

Sterling is suspended for the game against his former team while Liverpool, for all of their supposed defensive frailties, have been solid in their last two matches, keeping successive clean sheets, and are 16/5 to beat City.

Former Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater moved to Chelsea on transfer deadline day and the two teams meet at the King Power Stadium this weekend.

The old adage suggests former players always net against their old club so it may be worth betting on Drinkwater at 11/2 to score at any time in the game.

Arsenal are in danger of losing three top-flight matches in a row following their setbacks at Stoke and Liverpool and are 9/2 to be held to a draw by Bournemouth.

Everton meet Tottenham at Goodison Park and both teams will be disappointed with their inconsistency so far this term.

Ronald Koeman’s side were insipid when being outclassed at Chelsea a fortnight ago, while Spurs have lost to Antonio Conte’s team and been held to a draw by Burnley. A draw appears to be good value at 49/20.

Brighton have failed to score in their first three matches and entertain a West Brom side that are not known for their flair. The Baggies are 23/4 to clinch a third 1-0 win of the season.

Watford are 15/4 to keep a clean sheet against shot-shy Southampton while free-scoring Manchester United are 27/4 to beat Stoke from behind on Saturday evening.
