Premier League tips for matchweek six
Premier League action is back, and returns with some intriguing fixtures to get punters excited.
Arsenal v Chelsea headlines proceedings, as both vie to maintain a title charge, while reigning Premier League champions Leicester City take a trip to Old Trafford after the Foxes’ EFL Cup defeat.
Here, Coral football writers have picked out top Premier League tips for matchweek six…
Costa to oust Arsenal
Arsene Wenger’s Gunners haven’t defeated the Blues in the league in their previous nine encounters and the pattern look likely to continue, if Diego Costa continues his cracking form.
The Spaniard has five goals in as many Premier League games and three in his last two outings. Combine this with fact that the Brazil-born forward has two in three appearances against the Emirates and 11/2 with Coral on Costa scoring first looks superb value.
Both teams to score in Man Utd win
In 16 encounters against Leicester, Manchester United have only lost once and are coming off the back of a 3-1 win over Northampton.
Combine this with the fact Jose Mourinho has only lost ten home league matches in 259 matches and in three of United’s last wins over the Foxes the East Midlands side have managed to score in a Red Devils win, and both teams to score in a home win looks good at 12/5 with Coral.
Tigers to avoid mauling
Hull City boast an impressive recent home record against Liverpool and come into the fixture high on confidence, after emerging victorious from their away EFL Cup clash against Stoke City.
In their last three home encounters with the Reds, Hull haven’t lost, in fact they have won two of three. This, coupled with their previous three match-ups averaging just one goal a game, a tight draw could be worth a punt at 11/2.
Sky Blues to blast Swans
Pep Guardiola’s rejuvenated Manchester City possess a perfect record thus far this season, winning all nine outings.
As if this wasn’t bad enough for Swansea, the Sky Blues have also put four or more past teams four times his term and are 7/2 to do it again against Swansea.
Chadli to conquer Potters
Tony Pulis’ side beat West Ham United 4-2 in a thrilling game last time out and new signing Nacer Chadli shone on his home debut.
The Belgium international scored two and assisted the same number at the Hawthorns, he is 9/1 to emulate the performance by netting twice against Stoke City. Mark Hughes’ Potters are currently struggling and without a win in four outings.
Lukaku looks to continue fine form
Ronald Koeman’s revitalised Everton haven’t lost in the league so far this term and are on a run of four consecutive league wins.
Romelu Lukaku has been one of the main beneficiaries of Ronald’s revolution, with four goals in his last two games and is 9/2 to strike first.
Palace to pounce on Black Cats
Crystal Palace look finally to be over their 2016 slump and recorded back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since December last year with a win over Stoke.
Sunderland meanwhile, are without a win this season and sit second bottom of the table, with scoring goals their main problem. Alan Pardew’s men are therefore 6/4 to triumph at the Stadium of Light.
Spurs to triumph to nil
In all of Tottenham’s four wins this season, they have done it to nil.
Combine this with the fact that the last time Middlesbrough and Spurs faced each other, the north London side triumphed to nil, and you have a recipe for a routine win for Mauricio Pochettino’s outfit without Boro getting on the scoresheet at 9/4.
Saints to add to West Ham woes
Since moving into the Olympic Stadium, the Hammers have struggled to rekindle their home form – losing twice already this term.
Meanwhile, Claude Puel’s Southampton are on a three-match winning streak and look to have found their feet under the Frenchman. The Hammers are 31/20 to be beaten at home, but are better value to lose in a high scoring encounter – with the Saints 29/10 to win and over 2.5 goals, as two of the east London club’s previous three fixtures have ended in six total goals.
Shared spoils at Turf Moor
In their previous six outings, Burnley and Watford have drawn five times and are 21/10 emulate that result this weekend.
The Clarets possessed one of the best home records in the Championship last term, so expect Watford’s ferocious attack to be halted by a well organised Sean Dyche outfit.
