Weekend EPL Tips: My 5 Best Premier League Bets – 31/08/19

Teemu Pukki to score anytime @2.4

The Finland International has had a flying start to the season and finds himself sitting joint top of the Premier League goalscoring table after scoring five goals in just three games. An opening day goal away to Liverpool was followed by a hat-trick against Newcastle and a goal against Chelsea last week. It’s safe to say he is on absolute fire in front of goal. His side Norwich travel to the London Stadium this weekend to face a West Ham United team who have already conceded five goals at home this season and Pukki will be relishing the chance to pounce on that weakness.

Burnley vs Liverpool – Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals @1.83

The Reds are playing with great confidence so far this season and are expected to maintain the Premier League’s only 100% record with a win at Turf Moor. Victories over Norwich, Southampton and Arsenal put Liverpool top of the table and they will want to stay there come the end of this game week. Burnley go into this one of the back of a humiliating 3-1 home defeat to League One Sunderland in the Carabao Cup during the week and will take zero confidence from that.  

Chelsea vs Sheffield United – Chelsea to win and over 2.5 goals @2.0

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea picked up their first three points of the season last week following a 3-2 victory over Norwich at Carrow Road. Following a shaky start to the season, it looks like the ship finally is settling at Stamford Bridge with fans and Lampard himself becoming more optimistic about this season following their performance last week. Academy graduates Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount stepped up to the mark and a home fixture against newly promoted Sheffield United offers the Blues a fantastic opportunity to build on last week’s victory.  

Leicester City vs Bournemouth – Leicester City win @1.67

The Foxes will look to maintain an unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they take on the Cherries at the King Power Stadium this weekend. A midweek victory over Premier League rivals Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup will have boosted the confidence in the dressing room ahead of this weekend’s fixture and with strength in depth a luxury for Brendan Rodgers, a strong Lecister City side will be fielded. Meanwhile, Eddie Howes Bournemouth had to rely upon penalties to see off League Two Forest Green Rovers in the Carabao Cup during the week. Their performance was heavily scrutinised by fans who were not happy with what they saw and it will have knocked some player confidence going into this game. Home advantage proved decisive in each meeting last season and it could well be the same this weekend.

Raheem Sterling to score anytime @1.67

The Manchester City winger is scoring goals for fun at the minute. Sterling is joint top of the Premier League goal scorer table with five goals in three games to his name so far this season. A hat-trick vs West Ham United on the opening day of the season was followed by goals against Tottenham and Bournemouth. The England International will be full of confidence going into Manchester City’s game against Brighton at the Etihad this weekend and will be relishing another goal.
