Saturday’s Premier League tips: Could Newcastle upset Arsenal again?

| 14.09.2018

The Premier League returns this weekend with a bang this weekend after the international break.

Saturday’s early kick-off sees Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool. We’ve got a full preview for that game on the way. And you’ll find tips for all of Saturday’s 3pm games right here:

Bournemouth v Leicester City

Both sides have made a decent start to the campaign. Bournemouth sit sixth, while Leicester are a point behind in eighth.

Five of the last six games between these two have ended in a draw. We think this one could too. The draw is going for 23/10.

Jamie Vardy is 6/4 to mark his return from suspension with a goal. Callum Wilson is 8/5 to score for the hosts.

Chelsea v Cardiff City

Cardiff battled well against Arsenal in their last outing, but it’s hard to see them getting anything here. Chelsea have won all four of their games under Maurizio Sarri so far.

The Blues are 2/11 favourites and 5/6 to Win to Nil.

Pedro already has three league goals this season. The Chelsea winger is 6/5 to get another here.

Huddersfield Town v Crystal Palace

This game could hinge on whether Wilfried Zaha is fit. Palace haven’t picked up a single point from the last 12 league games he’s missed. He’s back in training, but it’ll be touch and go as to whether he starts.

Palace are 7/5 to win, while Huddersfield or Draw is 8/15 as a Double Chance pick.

Whatever the result, we can’t see too many goals at the John Smith Stadium. These two have only scored five league goals between them so far. Under 2.5 Goals is 4/7, with Draw and Under 2.5 Goals a 9/2 shot.

Manchester City v Fulham

Fulham’s attacking play has caught the eye, but they’ll struggle to get on the ball away to the champions.

City are clear 1/9 favourites. We go 1/3 that Pep Guardiola’s side win with a -1.0 Handicap.

It’s no surprise that Sergio Aguero is the likeliest goalscorer at 4/11. He’s also 11/8 to grab 2 or more.

It could be worth keeping an eye on Aleksandar Mitrovic too. He’s the division’s joint-top scorer so far with four goals. The Fulham striker is 11/4 to get another here.

Newcastle United v Arsenal

Newcastle won this fixture 2-1 last season. Arsenal have looked very shaky at the back this term. Will the Magpies show enough ambition to get another win this time around?

Rafa Benitez is more likely to try to keep things tight and try to nick a goal on the counter. But the visitors have enough attacking quality to break them down if they sit back.

The Gunners are 20/23 favourites. It’s 4/1 win for an Arsenal win and Under 2.5 Goals.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are 6/4 and 11/10 respectively to score.
