The two Manchester clubs are three points ahead of Celsea at the top of the early league table heading into another Premier League weekend
Leicester City v Liverpool
Liverpool have hacd a disappointing fortnight,thrashed by Manchester City then held at home by Burnley and go into this game in eightly place with 8 points from five games. Tis is the sort of game they should win though, with bottom half sides likely to struggle to cope with the combinations of Coutinho, Salah, Firmino etc albeit the back five isn’t yet of a quality to give them a sustainable shot at the title
Leicester have had a difficult start to the season and losses to Arsenal, United and Chelsea shouldn’t be seen as surprising. Four points from games against Brighton and Huddersfield are the sorts of returns they will be looking for. Vardy has four goals so far this season and the side is very dependent on service to him
Liverpool are even money favourites to get back on track here with BetVictor
Brighton and Hove Albion v Newcastle Uited
Two of the promoted teamsmeet a few months after their season long battle to win the championship. Brighton have a win and a draw in their five games in which they have only scored in two games, likely to be an ongoing problem this season for a team short of firepower at this level.
Newcastle started tentatively but have hit a run of form with three wins in a row taking them to the heights of fourth in the table.Interestingly BetVictor price Newcastle up here at 2/1 for a game where it could be argued they are favourites given their goal scoring potentila
Burnley v Huddersfield
Burnley are having another good start to the season.Their backs to the wall point at Anfield pushed them upto seventh with only one loss from their five games so far. Huddersfield have also had an excellent start.They recruited well in the summer and have an idential record to Burnley with 2 wins and 2 draws in their five games.
I ight expect uddersfield to fall away as their squad is strtched deeper into the season and teams become familiar with their strengths and weaknesses and havemore confidence that Burnley are a team to be on the right side of this season. They can be backed at 5/4 to win here with BetVictor,for what should be a narrow victory
