Premier League Stats (25th-27th Aug 18)

As we move into week three in the Premier League things are already starting to take shape. We get going with a regular Saturday lunchtime fixture that this week sees league new-boys Wolves host the champions – Man City. Did you know Wanderers have actually won two of their last four Premier League home games against City?

Five 3pm games that include Arsenal v West Ham, plus Southampton vs Leicester, while the Saturday 5:30pm offering sees Liverpool welcome Brighton to Anfield – with the Reds having scored a staggering 15 goals in their last three games against the Seagulls then we could be in for plenty of goalmouth action.

Onto Sunday, and we’ve two more games that see Watford entertain Palace – the Eagles are unbeaten in their last seven away games at Watford! We’ve also Newcastle vs Chelsea and did you know the Toon Army are unbeaten in their last five home league games over the Blues?

We conclude week three on Monday night with arguably the best game as Manchester United take on Tottenham at Old Trafford. Spurs will be looking for their first league goal away at United since 2014!

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.
