Football Liverpool120The English Premier League is heading for a short break but not before a number of big games take place on Sunday 4th October including Manchester United v Spurs.

 

 

 

Let's begin with a look at Sunday's EPL coupon. Remember prices are subject to change.

 

EPLSunOct4th

 

Leicester v West Ham

 

Leicester are 3 wins from 3. They began with a 3-0 win at West Brom and a 4-2 home win over Burnley and last weekend they came away from Manchester City with a 5-2 victory. Jamie Vardy has already bagged 5 goals, 4 of which came from the penalty spot. After a poor show in a 2-0 home defeat to Newcastle first time out West Ham are improving. They were competitive in a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal and last weekend they opened their account with a 4-0 home win over Wolves.

 

Southampton v West Brom

 

Southampton started with a 1-0 defeat away to Palace and then lost 5-2 at home to Spurs. Last weekend they got off the mark with a 1-0 win at Burnley and Danny Ings has scored all 3 of his sides goals so far. West Brom were 3-0 up against Chelsea last week but had to settle for a 3-3 draw. They started with a 3-0 home defeat to Leicester and suffered a 5-2 at Everton where they played a chunk of the game with 10 men.

 

Arsenal (home to Sheffield United) and Wolves (home to Fulham) are both short prices. The visitors in both those games have lost all 3 of their matches so far and the Gunners would look the stronger proposition to me and they should be in the goals.

 

 

Manchester United v Spurs

 

Neither side will be particularly happy with their start to the league campaign. United have played just the 2 matches, losing 3-1 at home to Palace and then riding their luck to eventually edge out Brighton 3-2 away from home. Spurs only away fixture so far delivered a 5-2 win at Southampton with 4 goals for Son but either they side of that they lost 1-0 to Everton and drew 1-1 with Newcastle

 

Aston Villa v Liverpool

 

Villa have won both their matches so far without conceding but things are about to get far tougher after a 1-0 home win over 10 man Sheffield United and a 3-0 victory at a Fulham side who have looked all at sea. Liverpool have won all 3 games, most recently beating top 4 candidates Chelsea (2-0 away from home) and Arsenal (3-1 at Anfield). Liverpool were made to work hard to win this fixture 2-1 last season but although Villa look stronger this time around I find it hard to make a case for a surprise.

 

Suggested Bets for Sunday:

 

Leicester to win and over 2.5 total match goals at 5/4

Southampton v West Brom over 2.5 at 17/20

Arsenal to score in both halves? (yes) at 31/20

Man United v Spurs over 2.5 at 8/10

Handicap, Liverpool -1 goal at 0.83/1
