A full list of terms and conditions, plus how to play is available here. Coral’s football experts have even given their thoughts on the features games to give you guidance.
Chelsea v Leicester – Home win
The Blues have won the last six matches against last season’s Championship winners, and Premier League title favourites Chelsea have 13 goals in their last three games against them, so should beat them comfortably again.
Crystal Palace v West Ham – Draw
Palace have not lost in their last six matches against their fellow Londoners but, with all the controversy going on regarding their vacant managerial position, back a draw here. The two sides shared the spoils in both meetings in the 2011/12 Championship season.
Southampton v West Brom – Home win
Both clubs have new managers at the helm this season, but it is Southampton that go into this game as favourites, having won both head-to-heads with the Baggies last term. A narrow win for the Saints is on the cards here.
Swansea v Burnley – Home win
Despite playing each other 42 times in history, this will be their first in a top-flight fixture. Off the back of the Swans’ shock 2-1 away win at Manchester United on the opening day this term, Gary Monk’s men will be full of confidence for this match-up.
Blackburn v Bournemouth – Away win
Eddie Howe has found a perfect replacement for Cherries top scorer last term Lewis Grabban in Callum Wilson. He has three in as many Championship outings, while Rovers counterpart Jordan Rhodes has failed to find the net this season so far. Bournemouth can beat Blackburn away as they did in March.
Brighton v Bolton – Home win
Dougie Freedman is under real pressure at Wanderers. They haven’t kept a clean sheet since Good Friday and, despite the return of Irish forward Joe Mason, this will be another lengthy and dismal away day for travelling Bolton fans. Brighton’s new boys are bedding in under Sami Hyypia and they will have too much for the Trotters.
Derby v Fulham – Draw
Felix Magath knows he needs something from this game to finally get Fulham off the mark for this season. But the German has built his career around upsetting the odds, and can inspire his side to a draw against Derby, who also lost their last game.
Middlesbrough v Sheffield Wednesday – Home win
Boro summer signing and Spanish striker Kike has really caught the eye, while the Owls attack has struggled. Aitor Karanka continues to use his connections to bring in talent, while Wednesday counterpart Stuart Gray has taken a punt on rising Scottish star Stevie May, but it’s a big step up to make immediately.
Nottingham Forest v Reading – Home win
Table-toppers Forest have big money buy Britt Assombalonga already firing with three in as many matches. Reading, meanwhile, have turned to Reds reserve forwards Simon Cox and Jamie Mackie following a summer of change in Berkshire, but the latter is ineligible to face his parent club. Stuart Pearce should come out on top.
Wolves v Cardiff – Draw
Resurgent Wolves got a favourable result against another relegated team Norwich in their opening matches, but the Bluebirds have made a strong start too. Expect both sides to enjoy a share of the spoils at Molineux.
Everton v Arsenal – Away win
The Gunners have only lost once in their last seven clashes with Everton. With Ross Barkley injured, the Toffees now face a huge challenge to beat a reinforced Arsenal side, who will be still be high in confidence following their opening win against Crystal Palace.
Hull v Stoke – Draw
Four of the last eight encounters between these two teams have ended all square and neither side have netted more than twice on those occasions. Both the Tigers and Potters had disappointing first Premier League outings this season, only mustering one goal between them.
Tottenham v QPR – Home win
Spurs hold the head-to-head record, with 18 league wins over QPR, and should have the quality to claim victory at home over Harry Redknapp’s freshly promoted team. The Hoops didn’t manage to capitalise on their chances in their opening day defeat and should have fewer opportunities at White Hart Lane.
Sunderland v Manchester United – Away win
The Red Devils have only lost once in their last six away fixtures at the Stadium of Light, and inspirational manager Louis van Gaal will be hungry to claim his first Premier League scalp. The expected return of Robin van Persie will also add a different dimension to United.
Manchester City v Liverpool – Home win
Current champions City enjoyed formidable home form last campaign, with 17 wins and just one loss. They have not been defeated by Liverpool at the Etihad in their last five Premier League encounters there, and star man Sergio Aguero will likely start, having already scored the winner against Newcastle United.
