Premier League Predictions – Saturday 14 October
There’s no doubting Liverpool vs Manchester United is this Saturday’s headline act but, with that match looking hard to predict, there looks to be better bets in the matches between Burnley and West Ham, Tottenham and Bournemouth, and Crystal Palace and Chelsea.
Burnley vs West Ham (Saturday 3.00)
After their opening four away fixtures against Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton, it’s hard to believe Burnley have already amassed more points on their travels this season than they managed in the whole of last season. However, despite that 8-point haul, they’ve not impressed as much at home as much as they did last season so far, having beaten Crystal Palace, lost to West Brom, and drawn with Huddersfield. Meanwhile, West Ham have been struggling on their travels with just 1-point from 3 away games, but have beaten Burnley in their last four head-to-heads. Trying to predict the winner of this match may not be the way to go though, with 6 of Burnley’s 7 Premier League matches this season producing 2 goals or less. However, the value looks to be in being even more daring by backing less than 1.5 goals, as that bet would have collected in all 3 of Burnley’s home matches so far.

Tottenham vs Bournemouth (Saturday 3.00)
Three of the last four games between the two sides have been high-scoring affairs, but Tottenham’s current home-form and Bournemouth’s current away-form suggests it might be a different story this time. Tottenham have been imperious on their travels so far with 12 points out of 12, and 12 goals scored, however they’ve managed just 2 points from a possible 9 at home and 4 goals. Bournemouth’s away form is worse though, with defeats at Everton, Arsenal and West Brom, and they’ve found the net just once in those 3 matches. Tottenham are fancied to break their Wembley hoodoo, and must to keep their Premier League aspirations on track, but may have to scrap their way to either a 1-0 or 2-0 win.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea (Saturday 3.00)
Crystal Palace have somehow managed to win their last two away games at Stamford Bridge, but it’s been a different story at home with Chelsea winning the last two renewals of this fixture 3-0 and 1-0. Meanwhile, home defeats by Manchester City and Burnley have left the current champions Chelsea trailing the two Manchester Teams by 6-points at this early stage of the season, but a 4-0 away win at Stoke showed the kind of display they’re capable of against average teams – and Chelsea to win to nil looks the percentage call at odds-against.
