United's poor form to continue and the Reds to score twice: 5 bets to consider this weekend

We also think QPR could nick a point against London rivals Crystal Palace.

AFTER A WEEK off, the Premier League returns and we’ve spent the extra few days meticulously studying the form guide to bring you five bets to consider before the games kick off.

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

Stoke to beat West Brom (draw no bet) – 13/10

Mark Hughes’ side have been in good form recently – they’ve won three in-a-row and their only loss in the last seven is away to Man City. The Hawthorns is a tough place to go but West Brom lost twice to a mediocre Villa side recently so there is every chance the Potters could continue their winning run (if the game is a draw your stake is refunded).

Liverpool over 1.5 goals v Swansea – evens

Liverpool have scored two or more goals in eight of their last ten league games and it looks like Brendan Rodgers has finally figured how how to fit his new attacking pieces in with Sterling, Coutinho and Sturridge. Swansea conceded four at Anfield and five at home to Chelsea so although they will host Liverpool, their defence isn’t the strongest.

Spurs to win/draw v Man United – evens

The game is at Old Trafford but Manchester United were very poor against Arsenal at home on Monday and they will be without Angel Di Maria, who is suspended. After a rocky spell, Spurs have won their last two and Harry Kane is in scintillating form.

Both teams to score and Crystal Palace/QPR to draw – 19/5

QPR have lost their last two games 2-1 to Arsenal and Spurs but they looked feisty in both encounters and with a little luck could have grabbed a point. Alan Pardew has had some good results since taking over at Palace but they haven’t been overly consistent so this could be the week where the visitors grab a vital draw.

Arsenal to beat West Ham at home, Chelsea to beat Southampton at home, Man City to beat Burnley and Liverpool to win/draw v Swansea – 3/1

Happy fourfold, everyone!
