Premier League: A grind rather than a glide for the Red Devils on Saturday


A busy Saturday in the Premier League. Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) picks out his best bets from the card.

Chelsea v Watford | Saturday 12:30 | Sky Sports

  • Chelsea ravaged by injury and discontent
  • Kante, Luiz and Bakayoko could all be out on Saturday
  • This game takes place just 62 hours after the end of Chelsea's gruelling 3-3 draw with Roma in the Champions League
  • Chelsea one home Premier League win in four this season
  • Watford above Chelsea in the table in the fourth
  • Fresh from beating Arsenal last week. Confidence high.
  • At 17/2 they have to be backed today with the game set up for them. In the interests of giving myself a chance of a winner I'll back them +1.5 as well.

Huddersfield v Man Utd | Saturday 15:00

  • The early fizz that enveloped Huddersfield in the Premier League has gone flat
  • The Terriers haven't scored in over a month and are starting to resemble 2016/17 Middlesbrough
  • Up against a side who've conceded just two league goals this season it's hard to see them scoring
  • It's a must win for the Old Trafford side and they should be good enough to grind rather than glide to victory
  • Only Spurs have scored more than twice against Huddersfield and that pattern can continue here.
  • Man Utd and Under 3.5 Goals looks a sound bet.

Newcastle v Crystal Palace | Saturday 15:00

  • One of the key questions this weekend is what effect Crystal Palace's brilliant win last week will have on their season. A one off, or a real turn in form?
  • I'll back them to register here in what should be a tough match in the North East
  • Newcastle have been impressive this season and looked great against Southampton on Sunday
  • Top 10 aspirations not beyond them
  • Palace the key here, I'm hoping their performance buoys them into a strong performance here and scorelines of 1-1 and 2-1 looks runners.

Best Bets 

Chelsea v Watford – Watford +1.5 (4/5 Unibet)

Huddersfield v Man Utd – Man Utd to win and Under 3.5 Goals (Evens Unibet)

Newcastle v Crystal Palace – Both Teams To Score (10/11 Unibet)
