THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK is over and that means it is time for more Premier League action. We all love watching Ireland play, but it is still great to get back to the normal routine. To celebrate another weekend of top flight football, here are five bets to consider before this weekend’s games.

As always, these bets are absolutely guaranteed to come through provided a large number of variables fall into place.

A penalty to be scored in Chelsea vs West Brom – 16/5

These teams are two of the most prolific in the league when it comes to getting penalties, winning five between them since the start of the season. With players like Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Saido Berahino running at defences, the chance of a foul in the area is pretty high.

Leicester to score under 1.5 goals vs Sunderland – 3/4

The early season optimism that was swirling around Leicester has long since evaporated and they have lost their last four league games – scoring no goals in the process. Sunderland seem to have turned a corner since their 8-0 loss to Southampton and have only conceded more than one goal in four of their first 11 games.

0 or 1 goal to be scored in Aston Villa vs Southampton – 11/5

Villa have scored the least goals in the league (5) and Southampton have conceded the least (5) so this shouldn’t be a high scoring affair.

Arsenal to win against Man United and 3 or 4 goals in the game – 7/2

Arsenal’s record against the traditional powerhouses has been poor in recent times and they won’t get a better chance to change that than against this injury ravaged United team. Alexis Sanchez is in breathtaking form, as is Angel Di Maria so there could be goals aplenty but with home advantage, Arsenal need to put this game away if they want to progress into a top side.

Chelsea to beat West Brom, Man City to beat Swansea, Newcastle to beat QPR and Stoke to beat Burnley – 4.3/1

Another glorious fourfold that will likely never reach its potential.
