Premier League accumulator betting tip: Manchester City and West Ham head up six-fold
The Premier League will be in full swing this weekend with another jam-packed round of action expected. Despite it only being the second week, there are some huge clashes, with Chelsea facing Tottenham in their first game at Wembley and Everton travelling to Manchester City.
Here is our accumulator tip for this week’s games.
Leicester vs Brighton – Leicester win
The King Power Stadium will host its first game of the new season on Saturday, with Craig Shakespeare’s side welcoming newly-promoted Brighton. Chris Hughton will likely set up deep and try to frustrate the Foxes, but with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho to call on up front, Leicester should have too much for the league debutants.
Burnley vs West Brom – Draw
Burnley may have won at Chelsea last week, but the basis of their success last season was their home form. West Brom will be the first visitors to Turf Moor and it will likely see a debut given to Gareth Barry. With no Andre Gray up front anymore, the Clarets could find it tough to break teams down. This one has draw written all over it.
Southampton vs West Ham – West Ham win
It was a tough start to what looks like being a promising season for West Ham at Manchester United last week, but they should get on better at St Mary’s. Despite Mauricio Pellegrino’s arrival, Southampton are still struggling in front of goal, drawing 0-0 with Swansea last week. The Hammers’ goal threat should see them over the line here.
Bournemouth vs Watford – Watford win
This is a tough one to call, but Watford are getting a rough ride from the pundits. Many have predicted them to struggle, but they have actually enjoyed a rather good summer, signing the likes of Derby midfielder Will Hughes and Andre Gray from Burnley. With Marco Silva at the helm, times could be good and they might just sprint a surprise at the Vitality Stadium.
Tottenham vs Chelsea – Draw
Chelsea are under a lot of pressure and will head to Wembley with a depleted squad. Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas saw red against Burnley and on paper Spurs may be stronger right now, but the Blues should never be written off.
Defensively they were a shambles last week, but last season they built from the back all the way to the Premier League title. Tottenham struggled at the national stadium in the Champions League last season, and Chelsea beat them there in the FA Cup semi final.
With the storm of anticipation of them playing there this year and the fact Harry Kane has never scored in August, an early season stalemate might not be the worst result for Mauricio Pochettino off the back of a win at Newcastle.
Manchester City vs Everton – Manchester City win
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City’s first real test in the Premier League last season was a home game with Everton and they drew it 1-1. But with over £200million spent on the team this summer and the loss of Romelu Lukaku on the other side, this meeting should be an entirely different story.
The attacking talent in the City side is nothing short of scary, and there will be lot of pressure on the likes of Idrissa Gueye to put in a man of the match display as he did against Stoke. Wayne Rooney will no doubt be a threat at the other end, but with Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero up front, City should come out of the blocks fast on Monday night.
