Premier League tips for weekend games
Following the midweek European encounters, domestic duties take centre stage once again this weekend as the Premier League returns for an exciting matchweek seven.
There’re a host of tasty top-flight clashes taking place, starting with Friday Night Football, rolling over to the usual Saturday kick-offs and finishing off with super Sunday.
So, ahead of the latest top tier fixtures, Coral outline Premier League for weekend games including the potentially epic match-up between Tottenham and Manchester City…
Lukaku to open proceedings against Palace
The latest Friday night meeting is set to be an intriguing one, with Everton hosting Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, as both sides look to earn a vital three points.
Belgium international frontman Romelu Lukaku has been in fine form this campaign and boasts three goals in four meetings with the Eagles, making him a promising 7/2 to open the scoring on home soil. The reliable Toffees striker has six strikes in seven outings so far this term.
Milner to bag goal anytime at Swansea
Liverpool’s attacking stars have been enjoying a rampant run of form of late, with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana, but their deeper midfielder stars have also been chipping in too.
James Milner, now on set-piece and penalty duties, struck twice last time out against Hull City and also netted over Swansea City last season. Backing him for another successful strike anytime could therefore pay off at a tasty 5/1 for Saturday’s early kick-off.
Watford to beat Bournemouth and both score
Watford will look to bounce back from their last loss to Burnley when facing Bournemouth on home soil next and, with both teams having scored in their last seven games at Vicarage Road, they are 18/5 to prevail and the two sides dispatching again.
West Ham to beat Boro to nil
Slaven Bilic’s West Ham United have endured a disappointing start to life at the Olympic Stadium and find themselves in the relegation zone at this early stage.
The Hammers have not lost to next opponents Middlesbrough since 2009, though, and the London club are 13/5 to earn only their second Premier League win of the campaign without conceding.
Hazard to strike last against Tigers
Chelsea endured a blip in their most recent outing against Arsenal, but their dominant record over next opponents Hull City should see them comfortably get back on track on their trip to the KC Stadium.
Rejuvenated wideman Eden Hazard especially enjoys coming up against the Tigers, having struck in last three consecutive match-ups against them, and the Belgium attacker is therefore 5/1 to bag the game’s last goal here.
Sunderland to lose out to West Brom
David Moyes’ Sunderland suffered a nightmare last outing as they let a 2-0 lead slip to lose 3-2 against Palace, and they look destined for another relegation battle this current campaign.
The Black Cats have also failed to get the better of next opponents West Bromwich Albion in their previous four match-ups, and the Wearside outfit are 23/10 to taste another defeat in front of their home supporters.
Ibrahimovic to draw first blood against Stoke
Sunday’s action starts off with with Manchester United welcoming a stuttering Stoke City to Old Trafford, with the latter outfit yet to win a league match so far this season, losing four times and sitting second from bottom.

Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils will look to capitalise after returning to winnings ways in recent outings and their returning frontman Zlatan Ibrahimovic will enter proceedings at 3/1 to open the scoring on home soil.
Austin anytime goal against Leicester
Being left out of Southampton’s Europa League clash in midweek, clinical frontman Charlie Austin will return to the fold ready to face champions Leicester City.
After already firing in an impressive five goals in seven outings so far this season for the Saints, the England international call-up is 7/4 to get his name on the scoresheet again and continue his fine form.
Sharing of spoils between Spurs and Man City
This weekend’s biggest top-flight pairing comes on Sunday afternoon as Spur host Pep Guardiola’s league leaders Man City, with the latter having recently failed to win for the first time as they were held by Celtic in the Champions League.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Londoners will be keen on pouncing on whatever lasting weaknesses there may be from the Sky Blues’ recent stalemate and a second successive draw for City at White Hart Lane is 12/5 to occur.

Sanchez to strike anytime at Burnley
The weekend’s top tier action comes to a close with Arsenal’s trip to Burnley, with Arsene Wenger’s Gunners set to arrive with plenty of confidence and momentum after taking Chelsea apart.
Arsenal’s in-form forward Alexis Sanchez has now struck five times in eight appearances this term, and the clinical Chilean is therefore 13/10 to bag another anytime, having fired past Burnley last season in the FA Cup.
