Brighton v Leicester City – Click here to bet
Brighton are currently riding high 4th on the table with 10 points from their 5 matches. They did come back down to earth last time out when they lost 2-1 away at Fulham in midweek. Their home games this season have seen a victory over Leeds and a draw against Newcastle with just 1 goal scored over those 2 matches.
Leicester are bottom of the table with just 1 point from their opening 5 games. They played Manchester United on Thursday night losing 1-0 at home and that was their 4th successive loss, the last 3 of which have all been by 1 goal margins. Last season Brighton won this fixture 2-1 and the reverse fixture finished 1-1 at Leicester.
Are Leicester a team in real trouble, I think so and I am going for a Brighton home win here.
Suggested Bet: Brighton win at 9/10
Manchester United v Arsenal – Click here to bet
This is without doubt the game of the weekend and pits 5th place Manchester United against top of the table, Arsenal.
United started terribly with back-to-back defeats, but they have won 3 in a row since then and they now face an Arsenal side looking to make it 6 wins from 6 matches. United are coming off successive 1-0 away victories over Leicester and Southampton and their last home game was a 2-1 win over Liverpool.
Arsenal have had successive home wins 2-1 over Villa and Fulham and their away games this season has seen them beat Bournemouth 3-0 and Crystal Palace 2-0.
Arsenal beat Manchester United 3-1 at home last season, but United won this fixture 3-2. Both fixtures were high scoring, but this hasn’t always been the pattern in Arsenal and Manchester United matches over the years.
I actually think there might be some value in under 2.5 goals at 11/10, but the real value for me here lies in the draw as there is very seldom a lot between these sides.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 26/10
