1. Arsenal to win & over 2.5 goals (13/10)

WATFORD’S LAST WIN over Arsenal came in 1988 and don’t expect the Hornets to reverse that trend on Saturday.

The Gunners looked excellent in their recent 3-0 victory over Man United, and have generally impressed in the Premier League this season, while Watford, despite possibly doing better than some might have expected so far, are clear underdogs in this game.

Alexis Sanchez is a doubt with a hip injury, though Arsene Wenger’s side have plenty of firepower regardless, with Theo Walcott managing 12 goals in his last 14 Premier League starts.

2. Harry Kane to be first goalscorer in Tottenham-Liverpool match (9/2)

In contrast with the remarkable highs of last season, Harry Kane has had a relatively low-key beginning to the 2015-16 campaign.

Having scored 21 goals in 34 appearances last season, the England international has just one goal from nine Premier League games this time around.

However, both Tottenham and Kane appear to be regaining confidence of late, with the 22-year-old striker on target in Spurs’ most recent home match — the impressive 4-1 defeat of Man City.

Liverpool will take time to adjust to new manager Jürgen Klopp’s style, and so may be vulnerable in Saturday’s early kick-off at White Hart Lane.

3. Chelsea to get back to winning ways against Aston Villa (4/11)

Chelsea may have had an especially poor start to the season, but Aston Villa at home is surely the ideal fixture for a club supposedly in crisis.

The board have backed manager Jose Mourinho for now, and so it’s time for the players to start performing, with the uncertainty over the coach’s immediate future no longer a pressing issue.

The Londoners are boosted by the return from suspension of key striker Diego Costa, while more cynical observers may suggest the absence through injury of Branislav Ivanovic is also a boost, given how poorly the defender has been performing of late.

4. Everton to get a draw against Man United (23/10)

Man United have been one of the more unpredictable sides this season. The Red Devils are currently joint-second, level on points with Arsenal, so it’s hardly been a disastrous start to the campaign by Louis Van Gaal’s side.

However, deserved losses to Swansea and more recently, Arsenal, suggest United’s current position may flatter them slightly.

Everton, meanwhile, are tough to beat — literally, they have just lost once in eight matches, against the side most people expect to win the title, Man City.

The Toffees tend to be especially good at home, so don’t be surprised if they pick up at least a point against the Red Devils tomorrow.

5. Kevin De Bruyne to be first goalscorer against Bournemouth (4/1)

Man City will be without some of their best players this weekend against Bournemouth, with Aleks Kolarov, Sergio Aguero and David Silva all set to be absent.

Nevertheless, City still have some impressive options in attack — one of which is summer signing Kevin De Bruyne.

The Belgian star is expected to start despite picking up a slight knock while on international duty.

Moreover, with six goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions, the 24-year-old attacking midfielder is on somewhat of a hot streak.
