Last week’s inaugural Five Premier League bets column produced three successful bets with 15/8, 6/4 and 5/6 winners meaning an even-stake punt on all five selections would have left you comfortably in profit.
This week we are back for more with Liverpool tipped to make it three draws from three under new boss Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool to draw with Southampton 13/5
Klopp has guided his men to two draws in his first two games at the helm and Liverpool have in fact drawn their last four games. Defensive kingpin Lucas is likely to return to Klopp’s starting line-up and he will provide added protection in front of the Reds’ back four, while the potent Daniel Sturridge is likely to be on the bench at best.
Southampton were pegged back by Leicester last time out to eventually draw 2-2 and they have drawn three out of their four away Premier League games.
Over 2.5 goals in Manchester United v Manchester City 5/6
The last seven derbies at Old Trafford have seen over 2.5 goals and the last 10 Manchester derbies in all competitions have seen 41 goals scored. So the 5/6 on offer looks tempting.
Stoke to win to nil 12/5
Stoke City have won exactly half of their 42 Premier League home games under Mark Hughes and after winning their last three top-flight games they will be hoping to make it four in a row for the first time since December 2011. They have started to find their feet this season and their last two victories have both been to nil – the last of which was a win at Swansea where they were worthy winners.
Watford continue to struggle, and although they have shown more away from home, they have scored just six times all season and they are tipped to struggle at The Britannia.
Leicester to win from behind 10/1
Comeback-kings Leicester have won a league-high seven points from losing positions this season and they have scored a league-high tally of six goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season.
Crystal Palace have conceded the highest proportion of goals in the final 15 minutes of Premier League games this season, while they have scored in three of their four away games to date.
Allan Hutton to be booked 5/2
The Aston Villa full-back is yet to be carded for his club this season, but he could face a tough time against Swansea’s speedy left winger Jefferson Montero. Hutton, who was booked on Scotland duty against Poland, will have to keep one of the most prolific dribblers around quiet. No player has attempted more dribbles in the Premier League this season than Montero (62). He’s lightning quick too and gave Branislav Ivanovic a torrid time earlier this season.
