Following the international break, attention turns back to domestic football and there is a stellar weekend of action on offer in the Premier League. There are a whole host of massive games on Saturday, none bigger than Manchester City vs Liverpool, and that is just one of the games that will feature in this Premier League accumulator.
Manchester City vs Liverpool
Pep Guardiola faces off against Jurgen Klopp in the first game of the weekend as two of the best attacks in the Premier League lock horns. Both of these sides have picked up two wins and a draw in their opening three games and Liverpool were superb in dismantling Arsenal 4-0 last time out. I think they’ll find it tough away at City though and even though it’ll be tight, I’m backing City to win this one.
Man City to win – 4/5
Arsenal vs Bournemouth
It’s been a horrible few weeks to be an Arsenal fan; the defeat to Stoke City, followed up by an absolute trouncing at Anfield before a dismal end to the transfer window. Star man Alexis Sanchez appears desperate to leave the club, Wenger seems to have lost the dressing room and they have already conceded eight goals in three games. I think they will put all that behind them against Bournemouth on Saturday though and even though Bournemouth gave Man City a good game last time out, I fancy Arsenal to steamroller them here.
Arsenal to win – 4/11
Leicester City vs Chelsea
Leicester City were poor at Old Trafford last time out, going down 2-0 and not really showing much in the game. Riyad Mahrez has stayed at the club, despite leaving international duty in the hope of completing a move away from the recent Premier League champions and I think they will struggle against Chelsea in this one. Danny Drinkwater made the move from Leicester to Chelsea on deadline day and he will link up with his former teammate N’Golo Kante in the Chelsea midfield. I think Chelsea will win comfortably in this one and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Alvaro Morata add to his tally.
Chelsea to win – 3/4
Brighton vs West Bromwich Albion
Brighton have struggled so far this season and they missed a great chance to pick up their first victory in their last game when they played against 10 men for much of the game. They failed to find the net for the third successive game against Watford and they will struggle to break down Tony Pulis’s West Bromwich Albion side here. WBA have made some excellent purchases in this transfer window and I think they could surprise a lot of people, so I’m backing them for a win in this one.
WBA to win – 15/8
Stoke City vs Manchester United
Manchester United currently sit atop the Premier League table having scored 10 goals in their first three games without conceding. Jose Mourinho will be desperate to keep that record up against Stoke City in the late game on Saturday and I’m backing them to do just that. Stoke City have made some shrewd purchases this transfer window and Jese looks as though he could be a quality addition, but even so, Manchester United look different class this season and I’m going for an away victory here.
Manchester United to win – 9/20
Total Accumulator – 16.9/1
