Crystal Palace v Everton
Palace will win a game at some stage — and when they do, we won’t win any money. Everton are a banker against the league’s worst side, even more so if Romelu Lukaku is fit to start.
Bet: Everton @ 8/13
Chelsea v West Brom
Newcastle showed up Chelsea’s vulnerabilities last week. Coming off the back of a European game in midweek, West Brom are tricky opponents — just ask Manchester United and Arsenal.
Bet: Draw @ 9/2
Liverpool v Fulham
After losing ground on Arsenal last week, Liverpool will be determined to get back on track. Fulham, who are without Sascha Riether who starts a three-match ban for stamping on Adnan Januzaj, have already lost six times this season.
Bet: Liverpool @ 2/7

Southampton v Hull City
Southampton don’t concede goals but Hull are a tough, tough side to break down. If striker Dani Osvaldo is fit, the hosts might just shade it.
Bet: Draw @ 14/5
Aston Villa v Cardiff City
Villa haven’t won — or even scored — in their last four matches. That has to change some time though, right?
Bet: Villa @ 21/20
Norwich City v West Ham
If ever there was a reason to stay out of the pub at 5.30pm on a Saturday evening, this is it.
Bet: West Ham @ 9/5
Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle
Hugo Lloris is likely to start in goal for Spurs after last week’s nasty concussion against Everton. The Frenchman has been part of a defence that has conceded just five goals all season — but Spurs’ problem has been at the other end. What does Jermaine Defoe have to do to get a game?
Bet: Draw @ 14/5

Sunderland v Manchester City
After watching City put seven past Norwich last weekend, and five past CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, it’s hard to have any faith that league’s worst defence will keep them out tomorrow.
Bet: City @ 2/5
Swansea City v Stoke City
While everybody else is watching United and Arsenal, these two will have the Liberty Stadium to themselves. Stoke’s form is marginally worse of two bad sides and they haven’t won at Swansea since 1993.
Bet: Swansea @ Evs
Manchester United v Arsenal
The world and its mother have been impressed by Arsenal’s start to the season — but did you know they haven’t won at Old Trafford since September 2006? United have 10 points from the last 12 in the league but they were shaky at times against Southampton and Stoke.
Bet: Arsenal @ 11/5
Accumulator: As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve gone for a few outside bets this weekend. A tenner will net you just under €85,000 if they all come in. We’ll be happy if we get five up.
