Sunday’s Premier League Preview – Reds can edge heavyweight Anfield clash


If Liverpool can tighten up defensively they should be able to edge to victory against Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side showed great attacking verve in their 4-2 Champions League victory against Hoffenheim on Tuesday but were once again prone to defensive frailties.

Liverpool can be backed at 15/2 to win the match from behind.

Tottenham will surely be too strong for Burnley and end all the talk about their supposed Wembley hoodoo which gained some momentum after they were beaten by Chelsea last Sunday.

Burnley were insipid as they lost 1-0 at home to West Brom last weekend and could face a difficult afternoon in the capital. Spurs can be backed at 5/2 to beat the Clarets by a one-goal margin.

Chelsea have gone from the ridiculous to the sublime already this season, following up their slapdash home loss to Burnley on the opening weekend by beating Spurs away.

Antonio Conte’s side can take advantage of Everton’s fatigue – the Toffees drew 1-1 at Manchester City on Monday before playing Hajduk Split in Croatia in the Europa League three days later.

Willian looks good value at 13/2 to score the first goal at Stamford Bridge.

West Brom have already racked up 1-0 wins against Bournemouth and Burnley this season and Tony Pulis’ side are 5/1 to beat his former team Stoke City by the same scoreline at The Hawthorns and make it nine points from a possible nine.

Saido Berahino has endured a difficult time since he left Albion and signed for Stoke in January and has yet to score a top-flight goal for the Potters.

However, he did at least set up Jese to score the winner against Arsenal last Saturday and is 7/1 to break his duck for Mark Hughes’ side by scoring the first goal on Sunday.
