Wolves v Crystal Palace
Friday 30th October, 8PM
Wilfred Zaha has been in fine form for the away side, who set up a goal along with scoring his own in the win away to Fulham. But this Wolves team are a very compact unit. A back three seems to work wonders with the new signing Nelson Semedo enjoying his time at right-wing-back. Youngster Max Kilman has also produced performances of the highest quality at the back for Wolves and I think they’ll keep the door shut on Zaha on Friday evening.
Wolves to win are 19/20 with Bet365.
Sheffield United v Manchester City
Saturday 31st October, 12:30PM
Again, last weekends early kick-off produced an upset which is common with the 12:30 starts. Man City were actually the unfortunate recipients of the early kick-off curse, but I’m sure they will carry on their fine form from the midweek action, which saw them steam roll Marseille in the Champions League. Sheffield United were unfortunate to not grab a result against Liverpool in their last outing and unfortunately I see the attacking threat of City being too much for them. City, at a -1 handicap are 4/5.
Burnley v Chelsea
Saturday 31st October, 3PM
The away side looked very comfortable in their outing midweek, with Christian Pulisic getting on the scoresheet in a 4-0 thrashing of Krasnodar. The American is surely in contention to start on Saturday, who can perhaps ruffle a few feathers in the Burnley back four. Sean Dyche however will no doubt set up his side to just sit back and defend for 90 minutes, so it’s a question of whether Lampard’s men can break the two blocks that Burnley will create. Chelsea to win and keep a clean sheet is at 7/4.
Liverpool v West Ham
Saturday 31st October, 5:30PM
The evening match sees Liverpool host West Ham. With the visitors grabbing a result against Man City, I don’t see why they can’t carry on that momentum into Saturday’s game. If there was ever a time to play Liverpool, it would be now, as both Virgil Van Dijk and Fabinho are both sidelined, leaving Klopp’s back line a little scarce. I can actually see the Hammers causing the upset of the day. At 7/1, I wouldn’t rule them out at all.
