Unfortunately, there will be no early game this week so I have picked out a bet builder for the evening match and also a 20/1 acca for the 3pm games.
20/1 Acca with Paddy Power (3pm games)
- Wolves win
- Aston Villa vs Bournemouth both teams to score
- Southampton vs Tottenham both teams to score
- Brentford vs Leicester both teams to score no draw
Wolves to beat Leeds - 6/5
Wolves have started to show signs of old recently at the Molineux and have won three of their last four home games in the league. Performances are improving and they have shifted themselves from once being bottom of the table to 13th. Leeds on the other hand can’t buy a win with just one win from their last 13 Premier League games. Having taken wins and kept clean sheets against Liverpool, West Ham and Tottenham in recent home games I am expecting Wolves to be able to come away with another three points here against a Leeds side that has lost nine of their 13 matches on the road.
Aston Villa vs Bournemouth - both teams to score 10/11
An interesting little stat which surprised me was that Bournemouth have won all of the previous four meetings between the sides, and they were all in the Premier League. The Cherries enter this game off the back of a confidence boosting win against Liverpool, a win that also gave them a vital three points to lift them off the bottom of the table and into 18th place. The south coast side still languish in the relegation zone but are a team that is able to punch well above its weight. Six of Villa’s last seven home games in the league have ended with both teams on the scoresheet so I will be taking both teams to score again here.
Southampton vs Tottenham - both teams to score 20/23
Bottom of the table Southampton host top-four contenders Tottenham Hotspur who they will be hoping could have another off-day. Spurs have been incredibly unpredictable this season, games you expect them to win they don’t show up for, and when you write them off they produce the goods. Because of the inconsistency of Tottenham I couldn’t bring myself to pick a winner here, instead I had a look at the previous head-to-head recordings and found that in all of the last seven encounters between The Saints and Spurs both teams have scored on all occasions. So with stats like that I am hoping for lucky number eight when the teams battle it out on Saturday.
Brentford vs Leicester - Both teams to score no draw 7/4
This game looks set to be an entertaining one if previous meetings are anything to go by. All of the least four games between the sides have resulted in both teams getting on the score sheet with just one of those games ending in a draw. Last week a defeat to Everton saw Brentford’s 12 game unbeaten streak in the league come to an end, which was the longest run in the division at the time. I can’t pick a winner here either way, the form would suggest a Brentford win but Leicester are one of those teams that when they turn it on are more than capable of taking three points. With that in mind I am backing both teams to score no draw.
Chelsea vs Everton
- Chelsea to win
- Joao Felix to score
- Kai Havertz to commit 2+ fouls
- Amadou Onana to commit 2+ fouls
Pays 19/2 with Paddy Power
Graham Potter will be looking for a fourth successive win in all competitions when Chelsea host Everton at Stamford Bridge this weekend. The Toffees come into this game off a win of their own which saw them end Brentford’s 12 game unbeaten streak in the league. That win lifted Sean Dyche’s men out of the relegation zone and into 15th place, but consistency is what is needed, and with no wins from their last nine Premier League away games this could be a stretch on Saturday. To make matters worse Everton haven’t won at Stamford Bridge in 29 attempts, the last time they picked up a win here was in September 1994! Graham Potter is going through a good spell at the moment, one that the fans will say is long overdue after a spell of games which saw them pick up just two wins from 17 games in all competitions. I fancy Chelsea to carry that momentum into this Saturday’s meeting and come away with another three points. I also think that Joao Felix is due a goal after a string of impressive performances that have gone unrewarded.
Everton will be without Andros Townsend through injury while Nathan Patterson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are also doubts.
Armando Broja and Thiago Silva will certainly miss out through injury while there are doubts over several other players. Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante, Cesar Azpilicueta, Mason Mount, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling are all doubts for the clash.
- Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 29 home games against Everton in all competitions.
- Eight of the last ten meetings between the sides have produced under three goals.
- Everton have failed to win any of their last nine away matches in the Premier League, drawing on three occasions.
- Everton have failed to score in seven of their last nine away games in the Premier League.
- Kai Havertz has committed the most fouls in the Premier League (47) and Amadou Onana has committed the fourth most fouls in the Premier League (39).
