Chelsea vs Manchester City

Man City heads to Stamford Bridge, determined to take away Chelsea’s unbeaten record. The Blues’ incredible start to this season has led them to the top of the Premier League table. Although star striker Romelu Lukkaku failed to score in last week’s London soccer derby against Tottenham Hotspur, the Belgian is a favorite to score against the Citizens. As Christian Pulisic has recovered from injury, head coach Thomas Tuchel will have all his outfield players available for Saturday’s game. Yet, after getting a knock in Chelsea’s match against Porto in the Champions League, goalkeeper Eduoard Mendy might miss the game. Consistent Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante should be a starter after scoring an incredible goal against Spurs.

The Citizens are hoping to get back to winning ways after their goalless draw with Southampton. Luckily for Man City, midfielder Kevin de Bruyne could return to the starting 11. However, Ferran, Stones, and Laporte remain in the recovery room. Past games against the two suggest that this is going to be a close one.

Chelsea’s Top Scorers

  • Romelu Lukaku – 3
  • Reece James – 1
  • Marcos Alonso – 1
  • Thiago Silva – 1
  • Kai Havertz – 1
  • N’Golo Kanté – 1

Man City’s Top Scorers

  • Ferrán Torres García – 2
  • Riyad Mahrez – 1
  • Rodri – 1
  • Jack Grealish – 1
  • İlkay Gündoğan – 1
  • Raheem Sterling – 1

Man United vs Aston Villa

After scraping a last-minute win against West Ham, Manchester United will be looking to stay in the title race when they host Aston Villa this Saturday. Cristiano Ronaldo looks likely to add to his Premier League scoring tally of three goals – making him a good option for a prop bet with your sportsbook. Fit-again midfielder Scott McTominay should keep his place in the starting XI. However, Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles are out due to injuries. The arrival of Ronaldo seems to have pushed Edinson Cavani out of the starting lineup for the foreseeable future. Yet, if the Red Devils need a goal late on, he could make a substitute appearance.

The Villans impressed in their last game by resoundingly beating Everton 3-0. Yet, it’s important to point out that the Toffees were missing important first-team regulars in the Villa Park clash. Aston Villa will be boosted by the news that John McGinn and new signing Leon Bailey should be fit for the match. However, since Dean Smith’s Villa side still hasn’t won on the road yet, it looks like another win for the Red Devils.

Manchester United’s Top Scorers

  • Bruno Miguel Borges Fernandes – 4
  • Mason Greenwood – 3
  • Cristiano Ronaldo – 3
  • Jesse Lingard – 2
  • Frederico Rodrigues Santos – 1

Aston Villa’s Top Scorers

  • Daniel Ings – 2
  • Anwar El Ghazi – 1
  • Emiliano Buendía – 1
  • Matty Cash – 1
  • Leon Bailey Butler – 1
  • John McGinn – 1

Everton vs Norwich

The Toffees are aiming to beat Norwich City at Goodison Park this Saturday. Everton will be in confident spirits despite suffering a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa because of their opponent’s poor form. Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, and James Rodriguez all missed the game and will stay on the sidelines. As a result, summer signing Salomon Rondon will lead the attack.

The Canaries are sitting at the bottom of the Premier League and have many absentees. Therefore, many soccer futures bettors have tipped them to be one of the first relegated teams of the season. Yet star striker Teemu Pukki offers some hope for Norwich. The Fin scored his second goal of the season in the 3-1 loss to Watford.

Everton’s Top Scorers

  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin – 3
  • Demarai Gray – 3
  • Michael Keane – 1
  • Andros Townsend – 1
  • Abdoulaye Doucouré – 1
  • Richarlison de Andrade – 1

Norwich’s Top Scorers

  • Teemu Pukki – 2

Leeds vs West Ham United

Leeds United welcomes West Ham United to Elland Road on Saturday for what is likely to be an exciting display of attacking football. So far, Leeds United’s performances have been better than recent results suggest. Therefore, expect the Yorkshire club to bring the game to the Hammers. A top Leeds player to watch is Brazil international Raphinha, who scored in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United. Unfortunately for the Whites, Llorente, Harrison, and Koch won’t be fit for the game. Also, Defender Pascal Struijk is banned from playing after an unsuccessful red card appeal.

The Hammers were extremely unfortunate not to pick points against Man Utd in their last game. Yet, considering West Ham’s attacking record, any bet on the Hammers scoring more than two goals against Leeds could be a decent wager, especially if on-fire striker Michail Antonio starts.

Leeds United’s Top Scorers

  • Raphael Dias Belloli – 2
  • Mateusz Klich – 1
  • Patrick Bamford – 1
  • Luke Ayling – 1

West Ham United’s Top Scorers

  • Michail Antonio – 4
  • Mohamed Saïd Benrahma – 3
  • Pablo Fornals Malla – 2
  • Aaron Cresswell – 1
  • Tomáš Souček – 1

Watford vs Newcastle

Watford will want to build on last week’s 3-1 win over Norwich City when facing Newcastle United at Vicarage Road. Although the Hornets did well to end their three-game losing run, they lost their last game against Championship side Stoke City in their midweek FA Cup game. However, rapid winger Ismaila Sarr bagged two goals in the win over Norwich and could prove tricky for Newcastle’s defense. Apart from the injured Joao Pedro, Watford should have a fully fit squad for the Premier League clash.

On the other hand, Steve Bruce’s Magpies performed well in a 1-1 draw with Leeds United. At the moment, Allan Saint-Maximin looks unstoppable and is likely to cause problems for the Hornets. Dubravka, Shelvey, Dummett, and striker Callum Wilson are all out injured for the game on Saturday.

Watford’s Top Scorers

  • Ismaïla Sarr – 3
  • Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis – 2
  • Juan Camilo Hernández Suárez – 1

Newcastle United’s Top Scorers

  • Allan Saint-Maximin – 2
  • Callum Wilson – 2
  • Javier Manquillo Gaitán – 1
  • Jacob Murphy – 1

Brentford vs Liverpool

Premier League Newcomer Brentford takes on Liverpool at home this weekend. The Bees have defied all expectations by picking up some solid wins. The club seems to be playing without fear and could be a tricky opponent for the Reds. Ivan Toney looks dangerous at the moment, so a bet on him to score could come off. As for other Brentford squad news, both Dasilva and Sorensen are still recovering, whereas Henry should be available for the match.

Brentford’s Top Scorers

  • Ivan Toney – 2
  • Christian Nørgaard – 1
  • Bryan Mbeumo – 1
  • Sergi Canós Tenes – 1

Liverpool’s Top Scorers

  • Mohamed Salah – 4
  • Sadio Mané – 3
  • Diogo José Teixeira da Silva – 2
  • Naby Deco Keïta – 1
  • Roberto Firmino – 1
  • Fabinho – 1
