Man United, Chelsea, West Ham a fantastic 5/1 all to win
Louis van Gaal’s United take on Everton at Old Trafford, and will be hoping for back-to-back league victories for the first time in his short spell in charge. The Dutchman will be encouraged by the fact that the Toffees are depleted in defence, also missing Kevin Mirallas in attack and looked jaded in their Europa League game against Krasnodar.
Added to that they also had a 4,000 mile round trip, so the chances of the Red Devils running riot are very high. With the likes of Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria all on-song, Everton don’t stand a chance, and the home side have won a staggering six times out of eight against them at Old Trafford.
Chelsea take on north London outfit the Gunners equipped with an arsenal of attacking options themselves. The Blues have only lost once to their cross-capital rivals at home in the league, over the last five seasons, including a 6-0 demolition last term.
Eden Hazard excelled that day, tormenting Arsenal’s defence. Brazilian playmaker Oscar also had a lot of joy, bagging a brace, and historically this is always a fixture that the Gunners struggle with.
Top scorer, with eight goals in all competitions, Diego Costa, will relish the chance to help the Blues beat one of their main rivals, and Jose Mourinho revels in getting one over Arsene Wenger.
West Ham have enjoyed a good start to the season and, encouragingly for boss Sam Allardyce, their new signings are starting to settle in well. They take on Harry Redknapp’s QPR at Upton Park, who are embedded in the bottom three of Premier League table.
The Hammers have won two out of their last three fixtures against the west London outfit, and look perfectly primed to carry that trend on against the Hoops.
