English Premier League: Take United, City and Spurs to win

Fri, Aug 25, 3:13pm by Staff Writer

Manchester United is tipped to retain the Premiership lead and Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield has a good of staying in second place as the competition enters its third round this weekend.

United hosts Leicester City on Saturday with Jose Mourinho’s looking a safe bet to make it three wins in a row.

The Reds have silenced their critics so far this season by scoring four goals in both games so far in a reversal of their attacking woes last season.

Leicester, meanwhile recorded its first win of the season at home to Brighton last weekend after a first-round loss to Arsenal.

William Hill is paying $1.30 for a United win at Old Trafford, with $5.50 for a draw and $9.50 for an unlikely victory for the Foxes.

Socceroo Aaron Mooy was the hero of last week’s 1-0 win over Newcastle, scoring the only goal of the match in the 50th minute to give his newly-promoted team a surprising start to the season.

Huddersfield trails United only on goal difference, but will need a step up in class when it meets Southampton this week.

“We’re happy with the six points,” Huddersfield manager David Wagner told a news conference this week. “We know this is only a start … it means more or less nothing …. It doesn’t help us on Saturday.”

“…Southampton is the next level. It is different class, a different category in the Premier League.”

The bookies tend to agree, making Southampton the $2.10 favourites to take the points after a 3-2 win over West Ham past week.

But at $3.60 and $3.25 for a draw, those looking for a patriotic punt on the EPL should not rule out Huddersfield continuing its run.

West Bromwich Albion is the other unbeaten site so far, and can leapfrog Huddersfield with a home win over Stoke City.

The Birmingham side is $2.45 for a win, $3.10 for a loss and $3 for a draw.

United’s home town rival Manchester City is looming as a challenger for the top spot this season and will draw closer with a victory at Bournemouth.

Twice-beaten Bournemouth have a deplorable record against City, having never beaten them its 10 previous meetings.

The Cherries have also failed to score in all five of their home EPL games against City.

That record is not expected to improve this week, with City on just $1.33 for a win against $9 for an unlikely loss and $5 for a draw.

Last season’s disappointment’s Liverpool and Arsenal meet in round three.

The 11th-placed Gunners suffered their first defeat of the season when they went down 1-0 at Stoke last week, but will be buoyed by the return of star forward Alexis Sanchez.

Sixth-placed Liverpool, meanwhile, has picked up four points with a draw at Watford and a narrow victory against Crystal Palace, and is paying $2.15 to win at Anfield, with $3.20 for a loss and $3.60 for a draw.

Defending champion Chelsea is languishing in 12 spot after a dire start to its defence, but should make up some ground against Everton.

The Blues are at $1.40 for a win at Stamford Bridge, with Everton on $7.50 and $4.50 for a draw.

Suggested Bet: Multi United, City and Spurs to win: $2.16
