The fourth weekend of the Premier League season after the International Break
Brighton and Hove Albion v West Bromwich Albion
Brighton missed a golden opportunity for their first win of the season when they drew 0-0 at Watford, having played against ten men for an hour. Their main problem in this higher division is looking glaringlyobvious after no goals in their first three games, how are they going to score goals and the transfer window didn’t bring striker reinforcements.
West Brom have had a tremendous start to the season with two wins and a draw from their first three games and they willbe very tough opponents for Brighton here as they are very difficult to break down
Odds for the game are Brighton 8/5 West Brom 15/8 and the Draw 2/1. West Brom at 15/8 with Bet365 is my bet.
Everton v Tottenham Hotspur
Everton look to have invested strongly over the summer especially at the back where Pickford and Michael Keane have slotted in well. Their problem might be adequately replacing Lukaku’s goals with Rooney primarily a support striker these days.
Tottenham have one point from their first two Wembley home games and it could be that in this transitional season they will fare better away from home. They too have defensive strength and we should expect Kane’s goalscoring to resume sooner rather than later
Odds here see Tottenham 21/20 away favourites which looks skinny and Everton 13/5. The value here looks to be the draw at 23/10 as these twomay cancel each other out tactically.
Burnley v Crystal Palace
Burnley,having had a successful season last year exclusively built on superb home form lost their first home game of this campaign in a dour encounter with West Brom. They should rebound from that though, and i like the look of their team strengthening during the transfer window.
Crystal Palace have had a rough start to the season,with no points fromtheir opening three gaes and new manager Frank De boer, trying to implement a new playing style in a tough league, is already under pressure.
Odds for this game on Sunday lunchtime are Burnley 5/4 the draw 11/5 and Crystal Palace 23/10. It’s a good time to be playing Palace and urnley at 5/4 appeals as one of the best bets of the Premierleague weekend
