Chelsea v Everton
Chelsea put in an excellent performance to beat Spurs 2-1 at Wembley in their latest outing, which was a much needed win after the debacle of their opening day loss to Burnley. Never the less Antonio Conte has made it clear he doesn’t fancy his chances with his squad the way it is and sees it as vital that they bring in more players before the transfer window slams shut next week.
The fixture computer has not been kind to Ronald Koeman’s Everton side, after their hard fought 1-1 draw away to Man City on MNF earlier this week The Toffees next three fixtures read Chelsea (A), Spurs (H) and Man United (A). I honestly can’t remember a side ever having a tougher opening to the season. Everton were decent against Man City but the fact that they played the entire second half with a man advantage but never really looked like killing City off, makes me think my pre-season prediction of them finishing 7th is about right.
I was leaning towards a draw here, but after realising Everton have a long journey back from Europa League action in Prague just 48 hours before kick off I’m going with a Chelsea win with Morata amongst the goals.
Chelsea and over 2.5 goals
West Brom v Everton
I love Tony Pulis and his magic hat. This season couldn’t have started much better for ould TP with two 1-0 wins leaving his Baggies side joint top of the Premier League before yesterday’s fixtures.
Mark Hughes relieved some of the pressure on him with a much needed 1-0 home win over Arsenal last Saturday. New signing Jese was particularly impressive and Sparky will be hopeful that the talented-young forward can produce those types of displays on a regular basis.
Stoke are of course Pulis’ old club, himself and Hughes are both fiery Welshman and absolutely hate each other so expect plenty of needle in this one.
West Brom win 1-0 13/2
Liverpool v Arsenal
Now this is a proper Super Sunday game which should give us load of goals.
Jurgen Klopp’s Red Men steamrollered Hoffenheim in midweek to qualify for the Champions League. There’s no getting away from the fact that the next week is massive for Liverpool on many levels; do they keep Couthinho? Do they get the centre back they badly need ? Do they get the all-action midfielder they tried to sign in Naby Keita ?
Arsenal will travel north after putting in a very, well eh, Arsenal-like performance against Stoke last weekend.
This game will be the first time we get to see Ozil, Sanchez and Lacazette play together and when you combine that with Liverpool’s shaky defence this is bound to be a goal-feast.
Result 2-2 11/1
Spurs v Burnley
Spurs are still trying to shake off their Wembley hoodoo after losing eight of their last ten games at their new HQ. Their performance against Chelsea was good however and I expect them to win this comfortably with talisman Harry Kane to get amongst the goals in August for the first time in his career.
Burnley will be buoyed by their last away trip to one of the big boys when they defeated league champions Chelsea but I can’t see them having enough to get something here and like last season their survival bid will more than likely be based on their home form.
Harry Kane to score 2 of more goals 2/1
