5 Premier League bets to consider this weekend

United and Liverpool to win to nil at home, Kane to hit the net in the North London derby and Mahrez to steal the limelight.

Bournemouth and Newcastle to draw 1-1 – 13/2

TWO OF THE league’s worst defences go head-to-head tomorrow. And while both have also struggled in front of goal there should be plenty of opportunities to change that in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Cherries have lost four in a row in all competitions while Steve McClaren’s side haven’t won since their 6-2 drubbing of Norwich three weeks ago.

It’s hard to pick between these sides, and given their defensive records, a score draw looks most likely.

There is very little value in backing Jamie Vardy to make it on the scoresheet for the ninth league game in a row — he is paying little over even money to score at any time, 4/1 for a brace and 12/1 for a hat-trick.

With the England striker guaranteed plenty of attention, his Algerian partner in crime in the Foxes’ attack looks the best value to open the scoring against a frugal Watford defence.

The way Man Utd are playing it’s hard to see them delivering an attacking masterclass this weekend.

Their defence has been rock solid, registering four successive Premier League clean sheets. This has an efficient 1-0 or 2-0 win written all over it.

Wayne Rooney should have a spring in his step after his late winner against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday and it would be no surprise to see him among the goals again.

Harry Kane to score any time against Arsenal – *6/1

Harry Kane seems to have regained his sensational goal-scoring form of last season after a sluggish start to this campaign. The England striker has bagged five goals in his last three games in all competitions, including two outstanding strikes in as many games.

Arsenal’s defence was torn apart by Bayern Munich on Wednesday, and while Spurs’ attack comes nowhere close to that of the German champions, a Kane goal here looks the value bet.

Liverpool to win 1-0 v Crystal Palace – 13/2

Liverpool have tightened up defensively and remain unbeaten after six games in all competitions under manager Jurgen Klopp.

After a remarkable start to the season, Palace have hit a lull and are without a Premier League win in three games.

Just one point separates these teams in the table but the new buzz around Anfield should see the home side sneak the win.
