Chelsea, under head coach Mauricio Pochettino, aims to secure their first Premier League victory, having garnered just one point from their opening two games. The Hatters, on the other hand, experienced defeat in their sole league fixture since promotion. Chelsea's recent draw against Liverpool and subsequent loss to West Ham United have stirred expectations and concerns.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham

26/08/23 – 21:30 – Vitality Stadium

In an upcoming Premier League fixture, Bournemouth is set to face Tottenham Hotspur at the Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth, under new manager Andoni Iraola, is seeking a breakthrough victory after a winless start to the season. Despite their recent struggles, Bournemouth's history against Tottenham reveals a potential for multiple goals. On the other hand, Tottenham, adapting well to life without Harry Kane, aims to continue their decent start to the campaign. With a recent victory over Manchester United, Tottenham approaches the match with cautious optimism. Considering their away form, which has seen struggles, Tottenham will face a challenging test against Bournemouth.

Arsenal vs Fulham

27/08/23 – 00:00 – Emirates Stadium 

In an upcoming Premier League clash, Arsenal is set to face Fulham at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal has managed to secure two wins in the new season, despite facing challenges in their performances. Their recent victory over Crystal Palace, despite being reduced to ten men, showcased their determination. On the other hand, Fulham's start to the campaign has been unconvincing, with a loss to Brentford and the departure of key player Aleksandar Mitrovic. Arsenal aims to dominate proceedings and secure a comfortable victory, while Fulham's lack of a reliable goalscorer could prove to be a hurdle for them. The match is expected to showcase both teams' abilities and strategies as they strive for success in the Premier League.

Brentford vs Crystal Palace

27/08/23 – 00:00 – Brentford Community Stadium 

In the upcoming Premier League clash between Brentford and Crystal Palace, both teams are expected to deliver a close and competitive match. The Bees have shown promise with a draw and a win in their first two matches, with Bryan Mbeumo particularly shining with three goals. Under 2.5 goals have been a trend in their previous encounters, adding to the anticipation of a closely fought game. The odds suggest that Brentford is the favoured team with a probability of 48.8% for a win, while Crystal Palace has odds of 3.90 for a victory. The absence of key players and the performance of Mbeumo will play significant roles in shaping the outcome of the match. Both teams' recent forms and lineups indicate that the encounter will likely be intense and competitive

Everton vs Wolves

27/08/23 – 00:00 – Goodison Park 

A significant early-season clash is on the horizon as Wolves visit Goodison Park to face Everton in a Premier League showdown. Both teams are winless after two matches and have managed to score just one goal combined.

Ahead of Betting on Everton vs Wolves The start of the season has been grim for both Everton and Wolves, placing them in relegation positions. Everton's lacklustre performance in their opening matches resulted in consecutive losses against Fulham and Aston Villa, failing to find the net while conceding five goals.

Recent records show Everton struggling against Wolves, with no wins in their last four encounters. Wolves have triumphed in their past two visits to Goodison Park, but Everton has managed to secure nine victories in their last 18 clashes on Merseyside.

To avoid their first three-match losing streak to kick off a season since 1990-91, Everton must enhance their offensive prowess. Their track record isn't promising, having won just one of their last 25 Premier League matches when conceding a goal.

While Wolves hold a favourable record in this fixture, they are coming off a tough defeat against Brighton following a strong performance against Manchester United. A third straight loss this weekend would echo a similar start to their previous three seasons.

Manchester United vs Nottingham Forest

27/08/23 – 00:00 – Old Trafford

The Premier League kicks off another exciting fixture as Manchester United, under the management of Erik Ten Hag, faces Nottingham Forest. Manchester United's season began with a shaky win against Wolves, where Raphael Varane's unexpected goal secured victory. However, their form took a hit against Spurs in their latest match, ending in defeat despite numerous opportunities. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, triumphed over Sheffield United thanks to a last-minute goal from Chris Wood. Forest displayed resilience against Arsenal in their opener, fighting back from a 2-0 deficit with Awoniyi's late goal. The upcoming clash promises intrigue as both teams aim to assert their dominance in the league after mixed starts.

Brighton vs West Ham

27/08/23 – 02:30 – The Amex Stadium

Brighton's anticipated clash with West Ham marks a promising start to their Premier League journey under Roberto De Zerbi. After a strong opening win against Luton Town, De Zerbi now has a chance to further shape his squad for the Europa League group stage. In contrast, West Ham's European title last season was overshadowed by a relegation battle. The Hammers face the challenge of improving their squad's readiness for the Europa League campaign, particularly after a subdued summer transfer period.

Historically, Brighton holds an advantage over West Ham since their Premier League promotion. Striker Evan Ferguson, having scored against Luton, may continue to shine. Brighton's aggressive approach was evident in the opening weekend, recording the most shots among Premier League teams. However, West Ham's recent away form is concerning, with four losses in five games.

For a tip, Solly March's consistent contributions on the score sheet make him a likely candidate to find the net. Additionally, a bet-builder tip combining both teams scoring, over 2.5 goals, and over 4.5 cards could be enticing. Brighton's matches under De Zerbi often involve numerous goals, while the new season's stricter refereeing might lead to more cards. Both teams will strive to secure points, and Brighton will have a relatively healthy squad with the return of Webster and Lallana. Meanwhile, West Ham will hope to bolster their squad before the transfer window closes

Burnley vs Aston Villa

27/08/23 – 23:00 – Turf Moor

Sunday's Premier League fixture at Turf Moor will showcase a clash between Burnley and Aston Villa, teams situated at opposing ends of the league standings. Burnley, striving to rise above the relegation zone, faces a formidable challenge in the upcoming round. Suspension keeps midfielder Anass Zaroury sidelined, while Michael Obafemi's return from a hamstring injury remains pending.

In contrast, Aston Villa exhibited a swift rebound from their 5-1 defeat to Newcastle United by securing a convincing 4-0 victory against Everton at home. The cohesive nature of Aston Villa's play sets them apart from Burnley. Despite Burnley's resilience on their home turf, betting on the visiting team holds substantial value. Although injuries afflict players like Alex Moreno, Tyrone Mings, Coutinho, Buendia, Ramsey, and Dendoncker for Villa, Unai Emery can still count on key assets for the upcoming showdown at Turf Moor.

Sheffield United vs Manchester City

27/08/23 – 23:00 – Bramall Lane

Sheffield United seeks a turnaround after two losses as they face Manchester City. Despite a spirited promotion campaign, the Blades have struggled in their Premier League return. Manchester City, led by Haaland's prolific scoring, presents a formidable challenge. Guardiola's side has secured five consecutive wins without conceding, demonstrating their strength. Injuries pose challenges for both teams, with De Bruyne's absence impacting City. While Sheffield United faces an uphill battle against City's dominance, their determination remains to create a memorable moment for their fans.

Newcastle faces a challenging test against Liverpool, aiming to prove their top-four contention. After a stunning victory over Aston Villa, the Magpies aim to continue their strong start. Liverpool seeks to extend their unbeaten streak against Newcastle, as they aim to assert themselves as title contenders. Despite summer turnover, Liverpool shows promise. Tickets for the game are in high demand, reflecting the anticipation of this top-four clash. Both teams have experienced changes in their squads, and midfield dynamics will play a pivotal role. Isak's form provides Newcastle an attacking edge, while Liverpool relies on their strong front three. The match is set to be a captivating showdown at St. James’ Park.
