Go on my Son, Liverpool to win and other Premier League bets to consider

Some food for thought.

1. Arsenal (v Swansea), Bournemouth (v Hull) and Spurs (v West Brom) 7/2

SWANSEA MAY HAVE a good record at the Emirates but you’d have to fancy Arsene Wenger’s side to inflict a defeat on Bob Bradley in his first game in charge.

Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in their last four games while only Stoke have scored fewer goals than Swansea this season.

Bournemouth’s leaky defence has cost them on the road this year but their home form has been solid. Hull are the visitors tomorrow and it’s hard to be convinced by them considering the lack of depth available to the now-permanent Mike Phelan.

Spurs are another side who look set for a Premier League victory this weekend. West Brom are no pushovers at home but you’d think Tottenham have more than enough ammunition to break them down.

Following on from above, Premier League Player of the Month Heung-Min Son has been in phenomenal form of late. And his quick feet and even sharper brain are just what Mauricio Pochettino’s side will need to unlock a stubborn Baggies defence.

With five goals in his last five games, including a brace in each of his last two Premier League away fixtures, he looks likely to be a big threat tomorrow.

3. Double: Middlesbrough v Watford to finish in a draw and Southampton (v Burnley) to win (7/2)

They’ve looked decent in patches since coming up but Middlesbrough are already looking like this season’s draw specialists. They’re yet to win at home this season and we expect that run to continue on Sunday.

Southampton have been adjusting to life under yet another manager and to be fair, they’ve been going rather well, particularly at home. It’s hard to see a limited Burnley side doing anything special at St Mary’s.

4. Benteke first goalscorer in Palace v West Ham (7/2)

The big Belgian’s tail is up and that’s an ominous sign for anyone in his way.

The Hammers have looked unsettled at home and on the road so far this campaign and they’ve been giving up far too many goals.

Benteke, who scored a hat-trick for Belgium against Gibraltar earlier this week, should get ample opportunity to add to his three Premier League goals in tomorrow’s late kick-off (5.30).

5. Liverpool to beat Manchester United (6/5)

Monday night’s blockbuster is tough to call but it’s hard to ignore Jurgen Klopp’s record against the Premier League’s top sides.

And Liverpool have been outstanding in their two Premier League home games at a new-look Anfield, scoring nine goals in their fixtures against Leicester and Hull.

Jose Mourinho seems to still be trying to figure out his best starting XI while Klopp is that bit further down the line.

United are physical and well suited to playing counter-attacking football but Liverpool will probably have a bit too much speed for the likes of Daley Blind.
