Goals Galore Expected in the Premier League this weekend

Another busy Premier League weekend begins. Don’t get too excited though, there’s the Carabao Cup for reserve players in midweek. Before those thrilling games, let’s look at the top Premier League matches and some betting tips.

The action begins on Friday September 17 with Newcastle United hosting Leeds United in an 8pm KO. The home side only Norwich below them in the table but are just two places behind their opponents. Four league games have produced just one point, but they have led in two of those matches. Only six sides have scored more than them in the Premier League, but they have conceded more than any other team.

Leeds have made a disappointing start to the new season. Is it second season syndrome? They’ve already conceded 11 goals and a bet on both teams scoring in this game should be a winner. That’s a stat that has come up in 11 of the last 13 Newcastle home league games. You can get 1/2 at Coral on that happening in this game.

To Saturday now and look for Manchester City to get another impressive home win. They host Southampton (3pm KO) and so far, this season, three home games have seen them score 16 goals. Their last three at home in the Premier League have been won by a 5-0 scoreline. Southampton have conceded 13 goals in their last three visits to the Etihad. A bet on over 3.5 goals in this match is 19/20 at Ladbrokes.

Also scoring plenty of goals this season are Liverpool who have ten points from their four league games. Midweek saw them beat Milan 3-2 at home in the Champions League. That’s the third game this season in which the Reds have scored three goals.

They host Crystal Palace on Saturday (3pm KO) looking to make it five home wins in six. That includes a 2-0 win over Palace. This promises to be an interesting game after Palace drew at West Ham and then beat Tottenham 3-0 last weekend. Only one of their last eight away league games have been won and you can get 8/13 on the Reds winning and leading at both half and full time.

Who’d think we’d see Ronaldo return to Old Trafford and Abba make a comeback in the same month? 47 years ago, Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest and United were relegated. Both events won’t happen this year though.

Sunday September 19 sees Manchester United away at West Ham. Ronaldo’s new side begin the weekend top of the Premier League table, but unlikely to be there when this game kicks off at 2pm. Two games has seen Ronaldo score three times and he’s 5/6 at Coral to score against West Ham. He has already tasted defeat though as United lost at Young Boys in the Champions League.

They are looking to make it 29 away league games without defeat. West Ham won their first two league games but since then have drawn with Crystal Palace and Southampton. Antonio was sent off last week (just as everyone put him in their Fantasy Football team) and will miss this game. The Hammers beat Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday. How will the loss of Antonio and the long trip home affect them? You can get 4/6 on a Manchester United win on Sunday.
