The English Premier League has returned in all of its unwavering glory, and I’m positive I communicate for the plenty once I say: We’re chomping on the bit to get caught on this yr!
The thriller and intrigue as to which twists and turns are going to make headlines alongside the way in which proceed to carry our consideration, that is really a league which captures the creativeness!
To convey all of it collectively – I’ve included a ten/1 quad on your perusal.
Friday 5 August
Selhurst Park is the stage for the season opener the place Arsenal as soon as once more travels to a so-called ‘lesser’ facet to get their marketing campaign underway. These are normally the types of video games Arsenal wrestle – however they’ve been thrilling to observe thus far in preseason.
I believe Gabriel Jesus may be unimaginable for Arsenal and if they can discover some consistency and put away video games comparable to these…nicely Europe certainly awaits? Again the Gunners at 8/10.
Saturday 6 August
Liverpool ought to get their season off to a flying begin and I can’t even fault the value accessible on the away win – irrespective of how arduous I strive.
Fulham had been spectacular within the Championship and their talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic was electrical, we simply should wait and see whether or not he is ready to replicate this within the Premier League.
Again Liverpool and over 2.5 at 15/20
Aston Villa 21/20
The Vitality stadium will little doubt be effervescent to welcome followers again for a Premier League recreation! The Cherries had been fairly disappointing within the break although, dropping to the likes of Braga and Bristol Metropolis. They may have all of it to do in opposition to a Villa facet who’ve produced wonderful shows while below the pupilage of Steven Gerrard.
I believe Villa win this, get on.
Nottingham Forest 44/10
These two sides haven’t met because the flip of the millennia, however you greatest consider there will probably be no love misplaced once they collide at St James’ Park on Saturday night. The house facet loved a comparatively profitable finish to the 2021/22 marketing campaign and can certainly look to consolidate these performances early on this yr.
Forest have completed nicely to get themselves into the league once more, however I don’t suppose they match as much as Newcastle right here. Eddie Howe has the higher facet and I believe they carry out as such in entrance of their passionate followers.
Antonio Conte’s facet are seen as robust favourites to win this recreation, however I don’t suppose will probably be so simple as that. They might want to work and show their superiority in opposition to the Saints.
Richarlison will miss the sport attributable to suspension – keep in mind? Southampton aren’t a slouch by any means, and I believe a excessive scoring recreation is likely to be the order of the day. Over 2.5 objectives is obtainable at 6/10 and I believe it is likely to be the banker of the weekend.
Leeds United 27/20
Leeds is likely to be fortunate to nonetheless have a spot within the league – however they are going to be optimistic of their season this yr and certain welcome the clear slate. They’ve misplaced key gamers (suppose Raphinha) however summer time signing Brenden Aaronson has attracted a good quantity of consideration within the media and I’m intrigued to see him within the league.
Wolves have arguably completed nicely to maintain their squad intact, and though they are going to be with out Raul Jimenez, Adama Traore returns from his mortgage spell at Barcelona, however I nonetheless really feel this encounter will probably be nearer than many assume.
I’m going to remain on the fence and say a draw at 23/20
– don’t decide me.
A couple of seasons in the past, that is definitely the function of the day…oh how the mighty have fallen proper? Chelsea will wish to get off to a constructive and assured begin once they journey to Goodison Park, however whenever you come up in opposition to a slowly melting toffee how will you not really feel blue?
Most likely not my greatest – however you smiled. Again the away win.
Sunday 7 August
In reality the perfect little bit of enterprise completed by the Foxes is undoubtedly the truth that they managed to maintain ahold of so many gifted gamers. They may certainly wish to enhance on their quite dismal show final season.
The Bees are actually with out Christian Eriksen, who has joined United and can certainly be missed. So as to add to their distress stories out of London counsel the guests will probably be with out additional gamers as nicely for the opener and so I can’t see previous a Leicester win.
Manchester United 11/20
United have at occasions flattered to deceive throughout preseason and new supervisor Erik ten Hag certainly faces a quite sophisticated season forward. No matter that quite pessimistic view, the facet is full of expertise and shouldn’t have any challenge scoring – imply Benny within the eighteen space and all of that!
Brighton have been a gritty crew in recent times although and I wouldn’t be stunned to see them give United a run for his or her cash and drive them to be expressive ought to they need all three factors.
I’m going to go together with the house win – tentatively so.
West Ham 7/1
Manchester Metropolis 7/2
Please see featured recreation on web page 3
QUAD @ 11/1
Arsenal Win 8/10
Liverpool + Over 2.5 objectives 1/1
Chelsea Win 7/10
Leicester Win 1/1
