Premier League preview: Liverpool host Leicester in mouthwatering clash at Anfield

Liverpool FC v Leicester City - Premier League

After more European action in the Champions League and Europa League, attention turns back to domestic football and the Premier League.

Before going into yet another international break, all 20 clubs will be hoping to go into that with a positive result.

Here is our preview and some betting tips from GIVEMEBET for this weekend's games.


Brighton v Tottenham

After an embarrassing mid-week 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Spurs will look to bounce back at the Amex Stadium against a Brighton side that have not picked up a win since the opening day of the season.

Burnley v Everton

There has been much speculation over the future of Toffees boss Marco Silva, although he can be encouraged by his side’s performance last weekend against Manchester City.

Everton gave City a run for their money in a losing 3-1 effort which was mostly flattering for the visitors.

Burnley have started the season reasonably well, picking up nine points from their first seven games.

Sean Dyche’s side remain an extremely difficult team to break down with a rock solid defence and striker Chris Wood, who has been on fire of late, with three goals in his last two starts.

Liverpool v Leicester

Liverpool v Aston Villa - Premier League

A huge game for title hopefuls Liverpool going into the international break. The Reds struggled mid-week against FC Red Bull Salzburg and Jurgen Klopp will not be happy that his side conceded three goals at home.

Brendan Rodgers makes his return to Anfield with high-flying Leicester who destroyed Newcastle 5-0 last weekend.

(GMB odds - Over 3.5 goals 31/20)

Norwich v Aston Villa

The first meeting of newly promoted outfits, between two sides who have struggled on the road.

All of Norwich and Aston Villa’s points (six and five respectively) so far have come on home soil and that has got to be a worry for both of their survival hopes.

The Canaries, who won this fixture 2-1 home and away last season, still have a worrying injury list, including first choice goalkeeper Tim Krul, who remains doubtful to play.

Watford v Sheffield United

Quique Sanchez Flores has had a difficult return to Watford, facing Arsenal, Man City and Wolves in his first three league fixtures.

The Hornets’ only wins so far this year have come in the Carabao Cup, and they host a Blades side who have collected a commendable five points from 15 on the road.

(GMB odds - 0-0 35/4)

West Ham v Crystal Palace

The late game on Saturday brings us another London derby as West Ham look to continue their great start to the campaign and enter the top four.

Crystal Palace have started well at home, but have lost two out of three on the road and have been starved of goals with striker Christian Benteke failing to register a single goal or assist in six matches thus far.

Crystal Palace v Everton FC - Premier League

The Hammers Andriy Yarmolenko is on fire with two goals in as many starts, and wing-back Aaron Cresswell has also found the net twice in his last two matches.

(GMB odds - West Ham to win 1/1)


Arsenal v Bournemouth

Bournemouth have made a bright start to the season and their matches have been hugely entertaining with four total goals in each of their last five games.

That open and attractive style may work in Arsenal’s favour who are formidable at home, but expect something of a shootout at the Emirates.

(GMB odds - Over 4.5 goals 41/20)

Manchester City v Wolves

Manchester City made a big statement with their away victory over Everton last weekend as many expected Pep Guardiola’s makeshift defence to crumble against the Toffees.

Everton FC v Manchester City - Premier League

Nuno’s side are fresh off the back of a 1-0 Europa League win away at Besiktas, but they are still learning how to juggle European football with domestic commitments.

(GMB odds - Man City to win 4-0 37/4)

Southampton v Chelsea

Southampton welcome Chelsea to the south coast as Frank Lampard’s side look to climb back into the Premier League top four.

The Blues head into the weekend just a point behind fourth place Arsenal and will be full of confidence after winning their third game on the bounce in the Champions League against Lille on Wednesday.

Since that 4-0 thrashing at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season, Chelsea have won all of their games on the road, heading to St Mary’s where Saints have only won once this season.

(GMB odds - Chelsea to win 20/23)

Newcastle v Manchester United

AZ Alkmaar v Manchester United: Group L - UEFA Europa League

The Red Devils head to St James’ Park desperate to end a wretched run of form on the road.

United made it 10 games without an away win with a goalless draw against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League – also failing to register a single shot on target.

Newcastle were taken apart by Leicester at the King Power Stadium last Sunday, but as Alkmaar and Rochdale have shown in recent weeks, United are not a side to be feared at the moment.

(GMB odds - Newcastle to win 33/10)
