Manchester United v Leicester (Saturday)

 

United are no higher than eighth in the standings and their only victory came at home to Chelsea (4-0) on the opening weekend. Since then they played out 1-1 draws away to Wolves and Southampton either side of a shock 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace. Daniel James has 3 goals for Manchester United whilst Martial and Rashford have 2. No other player has found the net for United in the league this season.

Leicester have made a very solid start, unbeaten with two wins and two draws and they are are third in the early season standings. They started with draws at home to Wolves (0-0) and away at Chelsea (1-1) before a 2-1 win at Sheffield United and 3-1 victory at home to Bournemouth. Jamie Vardy has scored 3 of Leicester's 6 league goals, 3 other players have 1.

United won this fixture 2-1 last season and they also won 1-0 at Leicester.

 

Verdict: Leicester have been in good form, this is a big test but they can come away with a point.

 

Wolves v Chelsea (Saturday)

 

Wolves are still looking for a first league win of the season and last time out they went down 3-2 at Everton. They started the campaign with three draws, 0-0 at Leicester and 1-1 at home to Manchester United and Burnley.

Chelsea let a 2-0 lead slip at home to Sheffield United last time out, a home fixture that eventually finished 2-2. Prior to that they got their first league win away at Norwich, edging an entertaining game 3-2. Chelsea had started with a 4-0 defeat at Manchester United and a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester

Wolves won this fixture 2-1 last season and they also came away from Stamford Bridge with a useful 1-1 draw.

 

Verdict: Wolves are a better side than their results suggest and they might just edge this one but Chelsea's earlier road trips were full of goals and preference is for 3 or more in total here.

 

Also on Saturday Manchester City should have way too much for Norwich. The markets suggest goals and City to come out on top of a high scoring game gets the vote.

 

Watford v Arsenal (Sunday)

 

Watford have just one point against their name after finally opening their account with a 1-1 draw at Newcastle last time out and this week they opted to replace coach Javi Garcia with Quique Sanchez Flores making a return. Despite picking up a point last time out Watford remain bottom of the log. They suffered defeats in their first three matches, 3-0 at home to Brighton, 1-0 at Everton and 3-1 at home to West Ham. Hughes opened the scoring early at Newcastle and Andre Gray scored their only other goal so far.

The Gunners came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Spurs at The Emirates in their most recent outing. Prior to that they lost 3-1 at Liverpool but they did start with back to back wins, 1-0 at Newcastle and 2-1 at home to Burnley. Aubameyeng has scored 3 of Arsenal's 6 league goals so far, Lacazette has 2 and Torreira 1.

Arsenal won both head to heads last season, 1-0 at Watford where Aubameyeng scored the decisive goal early on and they also won 2-0 on home turf.

 

Verdict: The change in coach is an interesting move at Watford but Arsenal get the vote to take maximum points.

 

Round 5 Bets:

 

Manchester United v Leicester, draw at 27/10

Wolves v Chelsea over 2.5 total goals at 19/20

Norwich v Man City, Away win and over 3.5 total goals at 8/10

Watford v Arsenal, away win at 9/10

 

Note all odds are subject to change.
