1 Chelsea vs Manchester City
Chelsea have won their last 3 games against Manchester City. Thomas Tuchel's side has won 4 and drawn one of their 5 EPL clashes so far. The home team has scored 12 and conceded just a single goal in the five matches.
Manchester City, on the other hand, have dropped 5 points from their 5 league games (W3D1L1). Considering Chelsea's recent record against the traditional top 6 teams, we are backing them to win today.
Aston Villa were recipients of a 3-0 win against Everton at Villa Park last weekend. Meanwhile, Manchester United scored late to claim a 2-1 win away to West Ham on Sunday.
The Red Devils' 2-1 success at the London Stadium on Sunday was Man United's fourth win in 5 league games (D1). The hosts have dominated recent meetings with Villa, winning 13 and drawing 4 of their last 17 league games against the visitors. United to win.
3 Everton vs Norwich City
Both Everton and Norwich City conceded 3 goals each in their last league assignments. After a near perfect start to the new EPL season, Everton were humbled by Aston Villa last weekend (3-0).
Meanwhile, Norwich City's 3-1 home defeat to Watford on Saturday was their fifth from their opening 5 EPL matches. We are predicting Norwich's losing streak to continue at Goodison Park today.
4 Leeds United vs West Ham
Leeds United are yet to win a Premier League game this season, recording 3 draws and 2 losses after five rounds of EPL matches.
West Ham, meanwhile, suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend against Manchester United. Substitute Mark Noble failed to convert a stoppage time penalty that resulted from Luke Shaw's handball inside the area. The Hammers eventually lost 2-1 in a highly entertaining clash.
However, the visitors are likely to return to winning ways against Leeds today. West Ham, who are now unbeaten in 4 league meetings with Leeds, won both ties between these two sides last season.
5 Leicester City vs Burnley
Leicester City have had quite a slow start to the 2021/22 EPL season. The Foxes have already lost 3 of their 5 league clashes, winning 2.
However, we are predicting the Foxes to kick-start their season with a win at The King Power today. Brendan Rodgers side has won 3 of the last 5 games versus Burnley (W3D1L1).
6 Watford vs Newcastle
Newcastle United are missing many of their star players through injury. Newcastle find themselves in the relegation zone after two draws and three defeats from their opening 5 EPL games.
Watford have won 2 and lost 3 of their 5 league assignments so far but will fancy their chances of getting all three points today. Watford won 2-1 on this ground during the 2019/2020 EPL season and we are backing them to win again.
