The Premier League enters Game Week 6 with Everton and Aston Villa the only two sides yet to taste defeat!
Game of the round materialises in the early hours of Sunday morning (AEST) when Man U welcome the Blues to Old Trafford.
Elsewhere, the Gunners take on an injury ravaged Foxes squad, City face the red hot Hammers and Liverpool get a free swing at three points when they meet the Blades.
Once again we have analysed all 10 Premier League Fixtures across the weekend and provided the punters with our best betting plays along the way!
In true 2020 style, Aston Villa head into Game Week 6 as the only PL side with a perfect record.
Liverpool match aside, the Villans have claimed their wins off the back of their stingy defence, Dean Smith’s side have kept three clean sheets across their past four contests and have conceded four less goals than the 2nd best defensive side in the league (Arenal 6).
Leeds have looked far from out of place in their return to the top tier, Bielsa’s boys have dominated possession in most of their fixtures, but have struggle to find the back of the net across their last three outings.
The Whites will be without their most pivotal piece in Kelvin Phillips who will miss the match through injury, this alone tips the match heavily in Villa’s favour.
Villa have a chance to win their opening five Premier League fixtures for the first time in the clubs history and I believe they’ll be the hungrier of the two sides here.
West Ham are looking to continue an impressive run of results when they welcome an underperforming Man City side to Olympic Stadium on Saturday night (AEST).
The Hammers will be brimming with confidence after turning around a three goal deficit to steal a point away from the inform Spurs last weekend.
Alternatively, Pep’s side were lucky to scrape past Arsenal, with Edison saving the his manager a few blushes with a stellar performance between the sticks.
Man City have absolutely dominated this fixture in the past, last dropping points to the Hammers way back in January 2016!
Sterling in particular has enjoyed this matchup, the England international has bagged 11 goals across his last six outings against the Londoners and I’m backing him to score once again here.
Fulham are still searching for their first win of the 2020/21 campaign as they take on Palace in a London Derby which no one asked for.
The Eagles were less than impressive in GW5, claiming a 1-1 draw against Brighton thanks to a Zaha penalty.
Neither side inspire any sort of confidence from a betting perspective, although one constant this season has been Zaha finding the back of the net.
The Ivorian striker has netted four of his side’s six goals this season, and will be confident on adding to his tally against the side sitting dead last on the table.
Match of the round comes to fruition in the early hours of Sunday morning (AEST) when both Man U and Chelsea look to steady the ship after a rocky start to the season.
Manchester have the chance to claim three consecutive league victories over the Blues for the first time in the club’s history.
Meanwhiles, Chelsea will attempt to build on their impressive goalscoring records which has seen them score 3+ goals in four of their five PL fixtures this season.
United have been largely disappointing at home this season, losing out to both Palace and Tottenham in ugly fashion, despite this I’m backing the Red Devils to turn their Old Trafford form around against Lampard’s shaky defensive unit.
Data scientist could simulate this contest a thousand times and they’d reach the same result every time! ‘Liverpool to shit it in’.
Sheffield have easily been the most disappointing side in the comp thus far, Chris Wilder’s side claimed their first point of the season last week against PL no hopers Fulham.
Meanwhile, Liverpool lost their trillion dollar defensive line, with Van Dijk to miss the rest of the campaign through knee surgery.
Despite this, the Reds have far too much fire power for the Blades, and should steamroll their opponents here.
League leaders Everton head to St Mary’s Stadium to take on an inform Southampton outfit.
The Saints march into this contest after twice turning around a two goal deficit against the Blues last week, ultimately snatching a point late at the Bridge.
The Toffees came from behind themselves, pinching a point off their arch rivals and the current champions Liverpool.
The result came at a cost for Carlo Ancelotti, who lost Richarlison and club captain Coleman through both suspension and injury respectfully.
The catalyst behind Everton’s dominant start to the season has been the form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has scored seven goals across the opening five fixtures!
I’m backing the fairytale to continue for both Dominic and the Toffees, with all three points going home to the Merseyside in a high scoring affair.
Following a challenging start to the season, the Wolves are looking to claim their third win on the trot when they welcome Newcastle to Molineux Stadium.
Nuno’s side has ground out two 1-0 victories against newly promoted sides Fulham and Leeds in recent weeks, with Jimenez doing the damage up top.
Meanwhile, the Toons have shown plenty of promise early on, snatching points away from both Tottenham and West Ham, before going down to a determined United outfit last week.
Astonishingly, these two sides have played out three consecutive 1-1 draws in the premier league, and both teams have found the score sheet across their last five league meetings.
I’m backing both teams to score at a healthy $2.10, but if you’re a sucker for a trend then a 1-1 result will bag you $6.50 on the dollar.
Leicester limp into London as they are handed the task to take down an ever improving Gunners outfit.
Brendan Rodger’s side are out to break a two game losing streak following defeats to West Ham and Villa, the Foxes will have to dig deep into their roster with defensive pillar Soyuncu added to their long list of injured stars.
Arsenal were narrowly beaten by their boogey side City last time out, though Arteta’s side we not without their chances and will feel aggrieved not to have picked up at least a point.
Although the Gunners haven’t bettered the Foxes since 2018, Rodgers’ is scrapping the bottom of the barrel in terms of personal and I can’t see his side winning this one off the back of ‘character’ alone.
Switch your TV off and let you head hit the pillow, Brighton and West Brom are set to take the stage at Amex Stadium.
The Baggies are one of four sides who are yet to register a win this season and are leading the league in goals against (13)!
Brighton have also struggled off the back of their sloppy defence, claiming just a solitary victory, although the Seagulls have pushed a few of the top sides to the brink.
With defence a mere afterthought here, I’m backing Brighton to outplay the Baggies in a fully fledged shootout!
Last and quite possibly least, comes the clash between Burnley and Tottenham.
The Clarets have proven to be the biggest flop since Speed 2 – Cruise Control!
Sean Dyche’s men have picked up one measly competition point this season, which came against a helpless Baggies unit.
While Tottenham have shown flashes of brilliance, with Kane and Son scoring at will.
Although, Jose’s side haven’t been able to string together 90 minutes of quality football yet, fortunately a solid 15 minute spell should be enough to put the Clarets away here.
