Aston Villa vs. Leeds

Back Aston Villa +0.5 at 1.40 (bet365)

Leeds look strong under the guidance of coach Marcelo Bielsa, but I can’t look past Aston Villa’s red-hot form. Spanning this season and the last, the hosts bring 6-2-0 form into this clash and they’ve won their last four home fixtures. Aston Villa have gone 4-0-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months.

Man Utd vs. Chelsea

Back Over 2.5 goals at 1.66 (bet365)

Both teams have been strong and attack but suspect in defence, which has resulted in high scoring games. Man Utd’s last four games have gone over 2.5 goals while Chelsea’s last nine away fixtures have gone over 2.5. United have seen 21 total goals scored in their last 4 fixtures while Chelsea have seen 16 in their last 3 and 32 in their last 7.

Liverpool vs. Sheffield United

Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.25 (Unibet)

Liverpool have gone 16-1-0 at home over the last 12 months while Sheffield United have lost their last four away games.

Southampton vs. Everton

Back Everton in the head-to-head at 2.38 (Unibet)
Back Everton +0.5 at 1.40 (bet365)

Last season the Saints had the 3rd best away record but only the 18th best home record. They take on a strong Everton side that has won three straight on the road and remain undefeated with a 4-1-0 record this season. Everton have gone 5-1-1 as the away favourite over the last 12 months.

Arsenal vs. Leicester City

Back Arsenal draw no bet (+0.0) at 1.43 (bet365)

Arsenal have won four straight at home and they have gone 7-5-1 as the home favourite over the last 12 months. The Gunners have gone 5-1-0 at home against the Foxes over the last six seasons. I’ve opted for the draw no bet (+0.0 Asian Handicap) selection over the head-to-head because their last four wins were all by a solitary goal and Leicester City are expected to get Jamie Vardy back for this clash.

Back Arsenal to win by 1 goal at 3.75 (bet365)

I prefer Arsenal to win by 1 goal over the 1.95 head-to-head odds because their last four home wins were by 1 goal and 4 of their last 5 home wins over Leicester City were by 1 goal margins.

Brighton vs. West Brom

Back Brighton in the head-to-head at 1.83 (bet365)

Brighton have been faring better than their results have suggested, as exemplified by their 1-1 draw away against Crystal Palace, despite out-shooting the hosts by 20 shots to 1. They hold onto the ball very well and if they can take more of their chances they should be fine this season. West Brom, meanwhile, have gone 0-0-2 away from home since promotion with a net scoreline of 7 goals to 2 on the road.

Burnley vs. Tottenham

Back Tottenham in the head-to-head at 1.61 (bet365, Sportsbet)

Burnley limp into this fixture with 0-1-4 form, with their solitary draw coming from a 0-0 stalemate against fellow strugglers West Brom. Tottenham have been hit and miss this season, but when you break down their results they have gone 2-0-0 away from home with 5-2 and 6-1 wins over Southampton and Manchester United, respectively. Spurs blew a 3-0 81st minute lead to draw last week so I’m not expecting any complacency coming into this fixture.
