Liverpool to upset the Saints and Sherwood to get Benteke firing: 5 bets to consider this weekend

The Premier League returns after last weekend’s cup action.

He knows the correct way to wear a scarf, which means Tim Sherwood knows how to get Benteke back in the goals.

THE PREMIER LEAGUE is back this weekend and to mark its return we’ve once again crunched the numbers to bring you five potential wagers to consider before the action gets started.

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

Liverpool to win away to Southampton – 19/10

Southampton have failed to win their last three home games and Liverpool look to have put their early season troubles behind them. With Raheem Sterling set to be fit and Daniel Sturridge continuing to progress, Brendan Rodgers’ men have every chance of winning. They’ve also won four of their last five league games and are unbeaten in nine Premier League fixtures.

Christian Benteke to score first in Aston Villa vs Stoke – 11/2

Benteke has been poor this season but new Villa boss Tim Sherwood was bullish about his chances of rejuvenating the Belgian like he did with Emanuel Adebayor at Spurs. It seems like Benteke could score here, Sherwood would milk the adulation and then he would be held goalless for the rest of the season as Sherwood once again capitulates.

Spurs to beat West Ham at home and over 2.5 goals – 8/5

There have been three or more goals in Spurs’ last six league games and while they lost to Liverpool last time out, they’ve been in very good form recently. West Ham haven’t won any of their last three league games and will find it tough to deny the home side at White Hart Lane.

Man United to score under 1.5 goals away to Swansea – 4/5

United have only scored over 1.5 goals in five of the 12 games they have played against sides in the top half of the table and in just two of the six away games. The Chelsea fiasco aside, Swansea’s defensive record at home has been strong since Christmas.

Chelsea (home) to beat Burnley, Man City (home) to beat Newcastle, Spurs to beat West Ham and Everton (home) to beat Leicester – 4/1

Happy fourfold, everyone!
