THE Premier League gets back underway this weekend after the international break. There are ten fixtures between Saturday and Monday, but Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) has narrowed his tips down to three picks.
There’s a top of the table clash as Chelsea host Swansea and it may be that the bookmakers have over-estimated Swansea. A superb opening day win against a shambolic Manchester United side was unexpected, but home wins against Burnley and West Brom shouldn’t have come as a surprise. Chelsea look the real deal this season and can comfortably end Swansea’s 100% record. Take Jose Mourinho’s side to win by more than one goal at odds of 10/11 with Bet 365.
Both Stoke and Leicester come into their Saturday meeting full of positivity. The former pulled off the result of the season so far with a 1-0 win at the Etihad two weeks ago, while Leicester matched Arsenal on home turf. Preference here though is for Stoke at odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes. Five home wins in their last seven games is strong form, and it’s worth recalling they took 7 points out of 9 at home to promoted sides last season.
Aston Villa find themselves in the Top 3 after an unbeaten start to the season, but now face their toughest test yet with a visit to Anfield. It’s fair to say Liverpool may be a little tired after the international break so they should have enough here. Villa have scored just three goals this season in the Premier League, and the call here is to back Liverpool to win to Nil at best-price odds of 10/11 with Bet Victor.
Chelsea to beat Swansea by two or more goals (10/11 Bet365)
Stoke to beat Leicester (11/10 Ladbrokes)
Liverpool to win to Nil v Aston Villa (10/11 Bet Victor)
