Premier League – 4th round

We finally got some surprises in the Premier League last weekend. Of the five big favourites that round Arsenal and Brighton didn’t win. Manchester United was also in massive trouble at home to Nottingham Forest, but overturned an early 0-2 disadvantage to a 3-2 win. For my recommended bets we had both Manchester City and the draw or Liverpool-win correct, but missed on the under 2,5 goals at Old Trafford.  

Premier League 4th round

This weekend it’s the last Premier League round before the international break and as always, I have picked out the games I find most interesting: 

Sheffield United vs Everton

Sheffield United lost a lot of important players after promotion, but now the holes are slowly being filled. Cameron Archer became the eighth summer signing last week, and more will be in place when this weekend’s round is played. The first three games of the season have been lost by a one-goal margin but they came close to stealing points at home to Manchester City last weekend. Like The Blades, Everton have also lost all of their first three games. Toffees fans are hoping things can turn around now that Portuguese striker Beto has been signed from Udinese for £30m. Youssef Chermiti has also arrived, and when Calvert-Lewin is declared fit, Sean Dyche will suddenly have offensive strings to play on. The guests have a small advantage here in my opinion and the away win at 2,58 seems like the tasty option. 

Manchester City vs Fulham

City are the only club with max points after three games, but the reigning champions were involved in a near miss away to newly promoted Sheffield United last weekend. Doesn’t seem quite comfortable without Kevin de Bruyne, and they also seem now to replace the injured Belgian with Matheus Nunes. Won 17 and lost just one home game last season. Fulham bounced back from the embarrassing 0-3 loss at home against arch-rival Brentford, when points were picked up away to Arsenal on Saturday. A new feather in the cap when Tottenham were knocked out of the league cup on Tuesday. Also had points in his pocket away to City last season but was beaten when Haaland scored the home team’s winning goal in the fifth minute of overtime. Manchester City therefor has 14 straight wins against Fulham and the 15th should come this weekend at 1,18. 

Liverpool vs Aston Villa

Liverpool seemed dead and buried when before half an hour they were 0-1 down and had Van Dijk sent off, visiting Newcastle. However, Allison kept the Reds in the game with some spectacular saves, and the Jota/Nunez duo made the big difference when they were introduced. Nunez showed qualities that you didn’t think he had, when he knocked in his two decisive goals in the final minutes. Villa have bounced back strongly after the fade in the season opener. Very easy against Everton, before there was also an easy 3-1 win away to Burnley last weekend. Seems to bring the centre-back Clement Lenglet from Barcelona, but should probably also bring in an extra striker before the weekend. Liverpool is a clear favourite in this game, but the safer option is to bet the double chance Liverpool / Draw at 1,23. 

My weekend coupon is therefor: 

Good luck with your best this weekend and we’re back with our next Premier League-preview next week.
