With a little more recent information to go on as we approach week three of the Premier League, we can become a little more confident with our selections. Just the nine fixtures this weekend with Chelsea and Aston Villa having already played their match, despite this there still looks like there are plenty of opportunities for us to make some cheddar.
Manchester City v Hull City
Bet – Manchester City to win to nil – 5/6 Bet Victor
This is a game where few will tip Hull City to get anything after 90 minutes and we all fully expect the home side to take all three points. Last season City achieved the second best home record in the league as well as registering a massive 10 clean sheets, combine this with Hull City who are well known for struggling going forward and proving this with just one league goal from their two games, a penalty, this bet looks great.
After last weekends debacle away at Cardiff, I cant see the team from the blue side of Manchester taking anything for granted, expect to see a beating similar to the 4-0 they handed out at Newcastle in game one.
Cardiff City v Everton
Bet – Both teams to score – 4/5 Bet Victor
The new boys from Wales have not only conceded four goals in their two games but have also seen a lot of the shots fired their way. Sitting on the back foot and containing Manchester City last weekend worked very much in their favour however they still conceded twice and i fully expect the same to happen on Saturday when Everton visit the Welsh capital.
Everton come into the game after a 0-0 which isn’t ideal form for a goals galore bet however after two draws from their first two fixtures against teams they would expect to finish above Martinez will now have to play a little more expansively to get a result this weekend, which will work great for us.
West Ham v Stoke –
Bet – West Ham to win to nil – 12/5 Bet Victor
Looking much more resolute at the back than last year, West Ham have yet to concede a single goal this season and i don’t expect them to either on Saturday. Last season they conceded just the 22 goals at home and this weekend welcome a toothless Stoke City who are under a time of transition with Mark Hughes at the helm.
Stoke did grab two goals last weekend against Crystal Palace but the London side look like a team who will lose a lot more than they win as the season progresses. Stoke do not have the attacking threat or outstanding player to threaten Jaaskelainen’s clean sheet bonus and despite a West Ham side who are awaiting their star man Andy Carroll to return from injury they look a confident outfit with goals in them from midfield to win this match.
Liverpool v Man Utd –
Bet – Manchester United Draw no bet – 21/20 Bet Victor
Liverpool certainly seem to be progressing under Brendan Rodgers after winning their first two games 1-0 however they were against two teams who finished in the bottom half last season and are likely to continue that trait which is unlike the prospects of the visitors to Anfield on Sunday, the league champions. United have started well enough and there wont be many complaints headed towards new man, David Moyes.
Moyes has certainly had plenty of experience in playing Liverpool in a derby after his long stint at the other club in Merseyside, Everton, and i have little doubt that no stone will be left unturned as he attempts to get the three points. Liverpool find themselves without Kolo Toure after injury and with the out of favour Skrtel coming in, they seem vulnerable at the back. I fancy United to win to nil on Sunday but i cant see them losing so have gone for a little insurance with the drawn no bet.
