Premier League Stats (29th Sept -1st Oct 18)

It’s ‘WEEK SEVEN’ in the Premier League and we’ve another full set of fixtures to take in across Saturday, Sunday and Monday this week.

We get going on Saturday lunchtime as Manchester United travel south to face West Ham in a fixture that ended 0-0 last season.

We’ve then six 3pm games to take in that include Arsenal v Watford – a game that, more often than not, produces goals – plus, the champions – Man City – entertain Brighton – did you know City have never lost at home to the Seagulls?

A real treat for the 5:30pm game this week though as Chelsea welcome Liverpool to Stamford Bridge in what is often a tight clash – four of the last five head-to-heads went Under 2.5 goals.
Onto Sunday and just the one game that sees Cardiff host Burnley and with a staggering 7 of the last 8 clashes between these sides ending in draws then this could be the way to play this match.

We end on Monday night as Crystal Palace make the trip south to face Bournemouth – both league meetings last season ended in 2-2 draws, so we could be in for a tight but entertaining game.

As always, we’ve got all the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats – So, let’s get going!
