Leicester city vs Chelsea
Leicester have only been beaten twice at the King Power Stadium this season and they rarely fail to score, so both teams to score looks like a solid starting point for our main bet.
Levante vs Athletic Bilbao
Five of Bilbao’s six draws have come away from home, including three successive 1-1 stalemates, my predicted scoreline for this game.
They have in fact kept five clean sheets this season, but, like Levante, have conceded in each of their last four matches.
At the other end, although they failed to score against Cadiz last time out, Bilbao have been potent, netting in all bar three of their matches so far, and it looks unlikely that Levante’s defence will be able to keep them at bay.
Watford vs Manchester United
Watford have lost three of their four games since Claudio Ranieri took charge and I am expecting United to claim all three points here.
However, Solskjaer’s men have just one win in their last six Premier League games and at a short price a straightforward win for the visitors isn’t particularly appealing and instead I’m opting for both teams to score as my main bet for this match-up.
Aston villa vs Brighton
Albion are in the midst of their own rough patch and are winless in seven games in all competitions, but they’ve only lost once inside 90 minutes during that run and that defeat came against Manchester City. Brighton boss Graham Potter is an excellent tactician and he will drill into his side the importance of keeping this game tight as they seek to avoid becoming victims of a ‘new boss bounce’ from Villa – and with that in mind I feel a draw offers real value here.
Liverpool vs Arsenal
The hosts have managed three clean sheets in their last five games but have been less solid at Anfield and have only managed two shut-outs at home in their last six games. One of those came against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League in a game where the Spanish side played with 10 men for an hour, while the other was a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace where the mid-table Eagles still managed to carve out 13 attempts.
Arsenal have scored in nine of their last 10 games and match-ups between these two sides usually produce a few goals. The corresponding fixture last season finished 3-1 and both teams have scored in eight of the last 10 meetings. Arsenal have only conceded four goals in total over those last 10 games so I’m not expecting Liverpool to run away with this one and a 2-1 win for the hosts is my correct score selection.
