Premier League Betting Previews 23rdth-26thth August

Aston Villa vs Everton - 20:00 - Friday 23rd August 2019 - Sky Sports

Aston Villa @ 9/4       Draw @ 5/2    Everton @ 11/10

Aston Villa take on Everton in the Friday Night Football, with Dean Smith's side still looking for their first points of this new Premier League season.

Villa come into this match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at home against Bournemouth, a match that saw concede two costly goals in the first 12 minutes.

It was a pulsating start to the match as Bournemouth went 1-0 ahead in just the second minute, when Joshua King converted a penalty after Tom Heaton had tripped Callum Wilson.

 

Eddie Howe's side doubled their lead just 10 minutes later. A mistake from Douglas Luiz saw Harry Wilson collect the ball and the on-loan Liverpool midfielder fired in via a deflection off former Cherries defenderTyrone Mings.

Villa looked to get back into the match, with captain Jack Grealish coming close after the break, but curled his shot narrowly wide. Douglas Luiz made amends for his error on 71 minutes with a superb strike into the top corner, but Villa could not find an equaliser.

It was a disappointing defeat for Aston Villa, who dominated every facet of the game in terms of statistics, they had 63% possession, 10 more shots overall and 3 more on target but crucially they couldn't convert them into goals.

They come into this match in poor form, with two defeats from their opening two Premier League matches, with a -3 goal difference, this sees them sitting 16th in the league. Their record against the Toffees in the PL is good, with 18 wins, 17 draws and 13 defats in their 48 encounters.

"It was the first minute of the game and we gave a needless penalty away.

The lad is going nowhere and Tom comes out and does something he would never do normally. That puts you on the back foot straight away."

"Then we make a mistake, with a square pass in midfield, Dougie lets it go and Harry Wilson lets fly from 30 yards and it deflects in. That’s 2-0 down in 10 minutes in our first Premier League game at home. That was a hard place to start from."

"But after that I thought we grew into the game. We reset ourselves well and got on the front foot."

Dean Smith gave his reaction to his sides first half performance that ultimately cost them the three points against Bournemouth.

Toffees Off The Mark

Everton come into this fixture on the back of a narrow home win against Marco Silva's former employers Watford.

Everton scored what proved to the only and winning goal of the game on 10 minutes, with Lucas Digne’s long pass finding Bernard, who cut inside from the left to beat Ben Foster with a low deflected shot.

Watford did do their best to get back in the contest, with Craig Dawson producing Watford's only chance of the first half came to, but his header crashed against the crossbar.

Everton's Richarlison should have doubled their advantage, but missed a great chance to make it 2-0 against his former side by heading over. Watford improved in the second half, with Troy Deeney forcing Jordan Pickford into a fine save.

Everton substitute Moise Kean threatened late on, but Watford have now failed to score a goal in both of their opening matches and have conceded four goals in the process. Everton have moved up to 7th with that narrow win.

Marco Silva will be delighted to see his side get off the mark with a vital win. They have now collected four points from their opening two matches and will be using that platform to secure another positive performance against Premier League new boys Aston Villa.

"It was an important win and really important three points for us. I thought we deserved the three points, even if it was a tough game, like always in the Premier League."

"Our first 30 minutes was very good: good football, good moments and a good goal from Bernard. We created more chances than Watford, they had one chance with Troy Deeney, and we kept another clean sheet, which was very important for us."

"But we will improve. I don’t have doubts about that. The performance was not our best. We can and will do better in the future and play with more quality than we did in the second half."

Marco Silva acknowledged that his side weren't at their best but did deserve the win in a narrow 1-0 victory against his former side Watford.

Norwich vs Chelsea - 12:30 - Saturday 23rd August 2019 - BT Sport

Norwich @ 7/2       Draw @ 11/4    Chelsea @ 4/6

Norwich host Chelsea in the lunchtime kick off, with the Canaries looking to build on their outstanding home win against Newcastle last weekend.

The Canaries had a tough first assignment in the Premier League, with a trip to fortress Anfield but they recovered in emphatic style to beat Steve Bruce's Newcastle 3-1 at Carrow Road.

Championship top scorer Teemu Pukki scored his first Premier League hat-trick, with the Finnish forward, who also struck in Norwich’s first match, opened the scoring with a sensational volley on 32 minutes.

Pukki then doubled his and the Canaries’ tally midway through the second half when he found the bottom-left corner with a low shot (63). He then wrapped up Norwich’s first win of the season with 15 minutes remaining, stroking home a left-footed shot inside the area to give Todd Cantwell a second assist (75).

Newcastle managed to pull one back late on through Jonjo Shelvey but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal for the Magpies, albeit their first goal of this new season. They remain without a point after two matches and face a tough match against Tottenham this weekend.

Farke will be delighted with how his side performed, they built on a superb second half performance against Liverpool and their star striker Pukki now has four goals in two matches. They have a poor record against Chelsea in the PL, winning four, drawing three and losing nine of their sixteen matches against the Blues.

"My feeling was that we were even better in the first half. We were like a thunderstorm, with only one team in it. We created many lightnings but only had one lightning strike, when we could have had many more and I would have preferred to have had two or three goals. But in the second half we were really clinical and we controlled the game. It was an all-round performance from my lads."

"They were really brilliant finishes from Teemu. His workload was brilliant, and I remember him gaining possession back close to our own 18-yard box and this is exactly the mentality and spirit we need.

It’s not about individual statistics and how many goals he scores, it’s all about the team and for that he is so important for us so it was a brilliant performance from him."

Daniel Farke was delighted with his side and Teemu Pukki as they beat Newcastle 3-1 at Carrow Road.

Blues Held By Foxes

The Frank Lampard era remains winless after they drew their first home game under their former midfielder against Leicester.

It's been a difficult start to life as Chelsea head coach for Frank Lampard, with his side losing by a hefty margin in their first Premier League game against Manchester United. They also narrowly lost by one penalty against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup but they are at least off the mark with a 1-1 draw against Leicester.

It was Chelsea who started strongly and Mason Mount dispossessed Ndidi to score his first PL goal on seven minutes. N'Golo Kante almost doubled their lead but was denied by the outstretched leg of Christian Fuchs.

Leicester grew in confidence after half-time and Ndidi headed in James Maddison's corner on 67 minutes, with the midfielder making amends after his earlier mistake saw Chelsea take the lead.

Maddison and Youri Tielemans both came close to finding a winner for the Foxes but were unable to find a way past Kepa Arrizabalaga, ensuring that both sides enjoyed a share of the spoils.

Lampard will be delighted with the resolve shown by his side but ultimately they will have targeted all three points against Leicester at home. They will be looking to register their first win of the season away against newly promoted Norwich.

"Credit to Leicester for that, they put us under pressure and we weren’t good enough in possession after the first period. We gifted them possession back and gave them the feeling they were still in the game because we didn’t score that second goal."

"In the second half, we left far too many spaces for them. They’re a very good team on the counter-attack, they have good attacking players who can really hurt you and that was the disappointing thing for me, the fact we couldn’t sustain the period in the early part of the game."

"I don’t expect that 100-miles-an-hour energy for 90 minutes but I do expect that we keep possession of the ball better when we rest."

Frank Lampard reflected on his first match in charge of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Betting Tips

  • Chelsea to win 2-1 @ 7/1
  • Teemu Pukki to score first @ 11/2
  • Tammy Abraham to score first @ 4/1

Brighton vs Southampton - 15:00 - Saturday 24th August 2019

Brighton @ 7/5       Draw @ 9/4    Southampton @ 15/8

Brighton take on Southampton in Graham Potter's first South Coast derby as Brighton manager.

The Seagulls have enjoyed an excellent start under new coach Potter, they are unbeaten in their opening two fixtures and have four points under the belt and currently sit in 4th place in the table.

Brighton started the match well and missed a glorious chance after just two minutes, with defender Dan Burn heading over from six yards.

Lukasz Fabianski was called into action again as he tipped over Dale Stephens’ stinging effort, while VAR overturned Trossard’s strike after Burn was ruled offside before providing the vital assist for the winger.

West Ham came back into the match in the second half and opened the scoring on 61 minutes, with Chicharito latching on to Manuel Lanzini’s pass and beating Mat Ryan with a powerful low finish.

That lead didn't last long as Brighton took only four minutes to equalise. Trossard did score this time as he collected a loose ball to finish low to Fabianski’s right (65). Trossard's goal on his Premier League debut was enough to ensure that Brighton got a share of the spoils as the match ended 1-1.

Graham Potter will have been thrilled with his sides resolve as they came back from a goal down to grab a share of the spoils. He will be looking to improve his sides PL record against the Saints, they are yet to win against their South Coast rivals in four matches, with three draws and one defeat.

"It was a positive performance for us. I’m disappointed with just the one [point], but that’s life and you have to take that sometimes. The players responded from the disappointment of getting a goal that wasn’t a goal, and then going a goal down as well."

“They kept going and showed some really good play and personality on the pitch. I thought the performance was really, really good, to be honest.

I think we played better than we did last week, but we didn’t get the win and you have to just take it and move forward."

Graham Potter was disappointed with just a point but was delighted with his players resolve and fight in the draw against West Ham.

Saints Narrowly Beaten

Southampton come into this fixture on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at St.Mary's, with Sadio Mane and Danny Ings scoring against their former clubs.

It was far from plain sailing for the Premier League runners up Liverpool, as they survived a late scare in the 2-1 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring against his former club with a wonderful curling shot into the top corner in first-half stoppage time (45+1). The Reds doubled their advantage on 19 minutes from time (71) when Firmino found the bottom corner from Mane's assist.

Danny Ings also scored against his former club as he pounced on Adrian's misplaced pass to score with seven minutes remaining (83) but he missed from Southampton's next attack from just six yards out with only Adrian to beat.

It's another defeat for Southampton but they will be delighted that they made Liverpool work for all three points but they will be ruing that missed opportunity from Ings that could have levelled the match. They will be looking to get off the mark at the third time of asking in this away fixture against Brighton and will be looking for a second PL win against the Seagulls.

"It's important that you don't give up. I saw a team that was believing until the last minute. Unfortunately, okay is not good enough against teams like Liverpool."

"To win against such a team you need to have a perfect game and we didn't quite have that. Bringing Moussa on was an offensive substitution. We tried to bring him into the game and force 1v1 situations and he had a few good ones."

"One situation was the moment where we created a chance. It's good for him to come in and to be able to show strength first time."

Ralph Hasenuttl was happy with his sides performance and of new signing Moussa Djenepo’s contribution.

Betting Tips

  • Southampton to win 2-1 @ 9/1
  • Glenn Murray to score first @ 9/2
  • Danny Ings to score first @ 6/1

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace - 15:00 - Saturday 24th August 2019

Man United @ 3/10       Draw @ 4/1     Crystal Palace @ 8/1

Manchester United take on Crystal Palace in their second home match of this new season, with Solksjaer's side looking to better their Monday night result against Wolves.

United went into the game in red hot form having dispatched Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford but their record against Wolves in 2019 was two 2-1 defeats at Molinuex. On the basis of those results United would have been happy to secure a point but they will walk away ruing a penalty miss from Pogba.

The Red Devils dominated the first half and they took a well deserved lead as Anthony Martial superbly scored his second goal of the season from Marcus Rashford's pass to put Man Utd 1-0 up on 27 minutes.

Martial who scored his 50th United goal, nearly added his and United's second just before half-time when he skipped past Willy Boly before standing on the ball when he was in a shooting position.

Wolves' responded after half time with Raul Jimenez hitting the post with a superb header on 52 minutes, but three minutes later they levelled when Neves brilliantly curled the ball in off the crossbar from outside the penalty area (55).

The catalyst for this change was the introduction of winger Adama Traore, who terrorised United's defence on the left hand side but Wolves two set pieces were superbly worked.

Pogba had an opportunity to secure victory for Man Utd when he was fouled by Conor Coady, but his penalty was saved by Wolves goalkeeper Patricio with 22 minutes left.

United come into this match in good form and crucially they remain unbeaten in their first two PL matches and face a Palace side who are yet to get off the mark this season. They will be looking to better their result from last season against Palace at Old Trafford, where they were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw.

"Not at all, the two of them are confident and good penalty takers. And I've been in that situation myself and missed a penalty for Norway, and when there are two names there it's the one who's the most confident."

"The two of them are the designated penalty shooters. It's up to them there and then to decide that 'this is mine'. Sometimes players feel they are confident enough - Paul has scored so many penalties for us, today Patricio made a good save."

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer attempted to calm the storm after Pogba missed a vital penalty in the draw against Wolves.

Eagles Downed By Blades

Roy Hodgson's side come into this match on the back of their first defeat of the season, with the Eagles succumbing to a 1-0 away defeat against newly promoted Sheffield United.

Chris Wilder's side put in another dogged performance as they narrowly beat Roy Hodgson's side 1-0 at Bramall Lane on Sunday. With John Lundstram the match-winner in their first home match since returning to the Premier League.

Sheffield United and in particular David McGoldrick had the best of the first-half chances at Bramall Lane, firing Lundstram's cross straight at Vicente Guaita from close just before half-time.

The Blades did eventually take the lead, with the hosts taking the lead two minutes after the break (47), with Guaita parrying a Luke Freeman effort for Lundstram to find the net.

Crystal Palace looked to Andros Townsend for a bit of magic as he forced Dean Henderson into a low save as Palace searched for an equaliser. But ultimately it wasn't enough as the hosts held on as they continued their unbeaten start to their first Premier League campaign since 2006/07.

The Eagles come into this match in poor form, having only registered one point from their opening two matches, they find themselves 14th in the league. Their record against United is far from encouraging, in 20 matches they have drawn four and lost sixteen, history will need to be made if they are to pull off a stunning victory.

"We didn’t look great in the second half but in the first half wasn’t such a poor performance; I thought we were more than worth our 0-0 at half-time. There were moments in and around their penalty area where I thought we might do some damage by getting the ball in Wilf’s feet and Christian’s feet."

"But second half, especially after the goal, we seemed to lose that composure and to some extent the passing quality we had in the first half and as a result it became fairly easy for Sheffield United to protect their victory and win the match."

Roy Hodgson was disappointed with his sides second half performance in the defeat to Sheffield United.

Betting Tips

  • Man United to win 3-0 @ 15/2
  • Marcus Rashford to score first @ 7/2
  • Wilfried Zaha to score first @ 12/1

Sheffield United vs Leicester - 15:00 - Saturday 24th August 2019

Sheffield United @ 11/4       Draw @ 9/4    Leicester @ 1/1

Sheffield United host Leicester City in their second successive home match, with the Blades looking to make it back to back home wins after beating Crystal Palace.

Chris Wilder's side put in another dogged performance as they narrowly beat Roy Hodgson's side 1-0 at Bramall Lane on Sunday. With John Lundstram the match-winner in their first home match since returning to the Premier League.

Sheffield United and in particular David McGoldrick had the best of the first-half chances at Bramall Lane, firing Lundstram's cross straight at Vicente Guaita from close just before half-time.

The Blades did eventually take the lead, with the hosts taking the lead two minutes after the break (47), with Guaita parrying a Luke Freeman effort for Lundstram to find the net.

Crystal Palace looked to Andros Townsend for a bit of magic as he forced Dean Henderson into a low save as Palace searched for an equaliser. But ultimately it wasn't enough as the hosts held on as they continued their unbeaten start to their first Premier League campaign since 2006/07.

Wilder will be delighted with his sides grit and determination, as they registered their first ever Premier League win against Crystal Palace in their last match. They will face a much sterner test from Brendan Rodgers Leicester side.

"We wanted a special atmosphere and we certainly got that and the players rose to it. It was a tight game, it's a difficult game for the opposition playing newly promoted teams because we've got that enthusiasm."

"We wanted to make sure that if anyone comes here, they have to earn the right and do a lot of good things to get that result. We were good and nicked a tight game. I thought the players defended direct play really well late on and it was just a real group effort - from supporters down to the players."

Chris Wilder was delighted with his side as they secured a crucial first home win in the Premier League.

Foxes Secure Brilliant Point

Leicester come into this fixture on the back of a 1-1 draw against Chelsea last weekend, with the Foxes coming from behind to secure a hard fought point.

In a game of few real chances, it's a result that Rodgers will be delighted with, especially as his side came from behind to nick a valuable point.

It was Chelsea who started strongly and Mason Mount dispossessed Ndidi to score his first PL goal on seven minutes. N'Golo Kante almost doubled their lead but was denied by the outstretched leg of Christian Fuchs.

Leicester grew in confidence after half-time and Ndidi headed in James Maddison's corner on 67 minutes, with the midfielder making amends after his earlier mistake saw Chelsea take the lead.

Maddison and Youri Tielemans both came close to finding a winner for the Foxes but were unable to find a way past Kepa Arrizabalaga, ensuring that both sides enjoyed a share of the spoils.

That result means that Leicester come into this game unbeaten but also without a win in their two opening matches, they will be desperate to secure a much needed three points.

"Well, we’re disappointed we didn’t win, but I think overall, we have to be really pleased and encouraged with the performance level. It was a tough start to the game."

"I think their players fed off the momentum of Frank [Lampard] coming back and they started really well. However, we reacted to the goal, going behind, and we got really together with our focus and played our way into the game."

"We’re going to have to have periods like that when you come away from home at one of the top clubs. I thought we grew into it. If we could have made one or two better passing decisions in the first half, we would have been in."

Brendan Rodgers said his side were disappointed not to win against Chelsea and that is a good sign for the Foxes.

Betting Tips

  • Leicester to win 2-1 @ 8/1
  • Oliver McBurnie to score first @ 5/1
  • Jamie Vardy to score first @ 7/2

Watford vs West Ham - 15:00 - Saturday 24th August 2019

Watford @ 6/5       Draw @ 5/2     West Ham @ 2/1

Watford take on West Ham in one of the Saturday 3pm kick offs, with the Hornets yet to score or yet to get off the mark in this seasons Premier League.

The Hornets come into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat against Everton last weekend, with Javi Gracia's side enduring a slow start to this seasons PL campaign.

Everton scored what proved to the only and winning goal of the game on 10 minutes, with Lucas Digne’s long pass finding Bernard, who cut inside from the left to beat Ben Foster with a low deflected shot.

Watford did do their best to get back in the contest, with Craig Dawson producing Watford's only chance of the first half came to, but his header crashed against the crossbar.

Everton's Richarlison should have doubled their advantage, but missed a great chance to make it 2-0 against his former side by heading over. Watford improved in the second half, with Troy Deeney forcing Jordan Pickford into a fine save.

Everton substitute Moise Kean threatened late on, but Watford have now failed to score a goal in both of their opening matches and have conceded four goals in the process. Everton have moved up to 7th with that narrow win.

Watford come into this match in poor form, they will be desperate to improve on their last performance at Vicarage Road, which saw them lose 3-0 against Brighton on the opening Saturday of the season.

"I think today we had a good performance. We were close to getting a better result. I think we deserved a better result. We had some clear chances, some moments when we dominated the game. We had more possession and the same shots on target, more corners than them. But we didn’t score and we need to try to be better next time."

"They scored from a long ball and we were a bit unlucky because our defender touched the shot a little bit,” he said. “After, we hit the crossbar, had a clear chance with Troy. I believed until the end. In the second half we started dominating and I think we had three corner kicks in the first three minutes. We were playing in the opposition’s half, but you have to score if you want to get points."

Javi Gracia believed his side were in the match until the final whistle as they narrowly lost against  Everton.

Hammers Secure Point

West Ham bounced back from their opening day disappointment against Manchester City with a battling point away against Brighton.

Brighton started the match well and missed a glorious chance after just two minutes, with defender Dan Burn heading over from six yards.

Lukasz Fabianski was called into action again as he tipped over Dale Stephens’ stinging effort, while VAR overturned Trossard’s strike after Burn was ruled offside before providing the vital assist for the winger.

West Ham came back into the match in the second half and opened the scoring on 61 minutes, with Chicharito latching on to Manuel Lanzini’s pass and beating Mat Ryan with a powerful low finish.

That lead didn't last long as Brighton took only four minutes to equalise. Trossard did score this time as he collected a loose ball to finish low to Fabianski’s right (65). Trossard's goal on his Premier League debut was enough to ensure that Brighton got a share of the spoils as the match ended 1-1.

The Hammers will be slightly disappointed that they let their lead slip after just four minutes but they will be happy to be off the mark with a point after their opening day pummelling against Man City. Both sides have an identical record in this fixture, with West Ham winning five, Watford winning five and two draws in their twelve meetings.

"I think it’s a good point. They are a difficult team, who played with a lot of trust after their win at Watford last week."

"On the performance, in the first half we started well for the first 20 minutes, but we didn’t create chances. After that we disappeared from the pitch and Brighton had all the possession. We defended well and they didn’t create too many chances."

"In the second half, it was a good game for both teams. Both had opportunities, we scored one goal each so I think the draw reflected what happened."

Manuel Pellegrini was happy with a point as his side drew 1-1 away against Brighton last weekend.

Liverpool vs Arsenal - 17:30 - Saturday 24th August 2019 - Sky Sports

Liverpool @ 4/9       Draw @ 7/2      Arsenal @ 5/1

Liverpool take on Arsenal in another early heavyweight clash in this new Premier League season, with both sides boasting two wins from two coming into this match.

The Reds come into the match on the back of a narrow 2-1 win against Southampton at St.Mary's last weekend.

It was far from plain sailing for the Premier League runners up Liverpool, as they survived a late scare in the 2-1 win over Southampton at St Mary's Stadium. Both Sadio Mane and Danny Ings both scored against their formers clubs.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring against his former club with a wonderful curling shot into the top corner in first-half stoppage time (45+1). The Reds doubled their advantage on 19 minutes from time (71) when Firmino found the bottom corner from Mane's assist.

Danny Ings also scored against his former club as he pounced on Adrian's misplaced pass to score with seven minutes remaining (83) but he missed from Southampton's next attack from just six yards out with only Adrian to beat.

Liverpool come into this match in good form,  having won both of their opening Premier League matches and securing the UEFA Super Cup in midweek as well. The Reds have an excellent record against Arsenal, with twenty wins, nineteen draws and fifteen defeats in their fifty-four meetings, with Liverpool stuffing Arsenal 5-1 in last seasons fixture at Anfield.

"We controlled the game, we were fluent, all that stuff and then with the long balls and set-pieces Southampton came up then. But Sadio scored a fantastic goal in pretty much the best moment at least of the first half, in the last second pretty much. That helped, of course, and in the second half we made other big steps."

"We really controlled the game better, did a lot of good things, and then minute 83, I saw it up on the screen, and Adrian thought ‘I played really well, so maybe I have to make the same mistake as Ali did!’ and kept the game a little bit open. So then they came up and Ingsy had a big chance."

"That’s normal and I think then the boys felt the tiredness, that was the moment you think, ‘Really? Now we have to go again?’ So, we kept the result, I think we deserved the three points and I’m completely fine with that."

Jurgen Klopp was delighted with his side after they secured back to back wins in this Premier League campaign.

Gunners 100% Record Intact

Unai Emery's side come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win against Burnley at the Emirates, ensuring his side come into this vital fixture with two wins from two games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the match winner for the second successive match as his second-half goal made the difference as Arsenal beat Burnley 2-1 at Emirates Stadium.

It was his strike partner Alexandre Lacazette who fired Arsenal into a 13th-minute lead when he turned in a crowded area and squeezed a shot in off Nick Pope.

Chris Wood came close to scoring twice for the visitors Burnley, with his first effort a dragged shot wide and his second effort was a header that was well saved by Bernd Leno. But the visitors did manage to level and crucially just before the break when Ashley Barnes struck his third goal in two matches (43).

Arsenal struck back just after the hour mark (64) when Aubameyang restored Arsenal's advantage with a low strike that was set up by man of the match Dani Ceballos's second assist of the match.

Arsenal come into this match in good form with two gritty wins from the opening matches. They will face a much sterner test from last seasons runners up and it will be a huge challenge for Arsenal compared with the likes of Burnley and Newcastle.

"Yes, really we can be happy and I think that our idea, our game plan on the pitch was knowing it was going to be tough, because we needed to adapt to their game plan: long balls, second action, pushes and high pressing."

"And after, we wanted to impose our game plan. Really, I think we won in our moments... we made the difference to win 2-1 but in a lot of moments we couldn't impose our game plan because they pushed and their game plan was to make us struggle."

"Last year for example, I think we lost some points in some moments when we didn't have different possibilities for some matches. We lost in those moments. This year I prefer to have on the bench some important players but really, really with the possibility to be with a good impact after. I think the team is going to be more competitive. That's my idea."

Unai Emery was happy with his sides determination against Burnley and he gave some insight into his mindset ahead of the Liverpool match.

Bournemouth vs Man City - 14:00 - Sunday 25th August 2019 - Sky Sports

Bournemouth @ 12/1       Draw @ 6/1     Man City @ 1/6

Bournemouth take on Champions Manchester City in their third match of this new season, with the Cherries unbeaten in their opening two PL fixtures.

Eddie Howe's side come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win away against Villa, a match that saw them score two quick goals in the first 12 minutes.

It was a pulsating start to the match as Bournemouth went 1-0 ahead in just the second minute, when Joshua King converted a penalty after Tom Heaton had tripped Callum Wilson.

Eddie Howe's side doubled their lead just 10 minutes later. A mistake from Douglas Luiz saw Harry Wilson collect the ball and the on-loan Liverpool midfielder fired in via a deflection off former Cherries defenderTyrone Mings.

Villa looked to get back into the match, with captain Jack Grealish coming close after the break, but curled his shot narrowly wide. Douglas Luiz made amends for his error on 71 minutes with a superb strike into the top corner, but Villa could not find an equaliser.

It was a disappointing defeat for Aston Villa, who dominated every facet of the game in terms of statistics, they had 63% possession, 10 more shots overall and 3 more on target but crucially they couldn't convert them into goals.

Bournemouth come into this match in good form, having won their first away fixture of this new season at the first time of asking, but they will be disappointed with the home draw against newly promoted Sheffield United.

"It was a really hard game. Villa are a good team. We started well and got the lead, but Villa came back and we knew the second half would be difficult. We defended very well and defended the set-plays and crosses well."

"I thought Villa made it a really good game today. They played well and have good players. That's why I think it's a big win to come here and perform the way we did."

Eddie Howe was delighted as his side secured a tough 2-1 win against Aston Villa at Villa Park.

VAR Controversy For City

Pep Guardiola's side could only draw at home against Tottenham, with VAR yet again cancelling out a late goal for the second time in four months against the same opponents.

The decision was very similar to the end of last season’s Champions League quarter-final tie between the two sides, when Raheem Sterling’s goal was scrubbed off in dramatic circumstances.

City took the lead on 20 minutes when Raheem Sterling scored for a second successive match after heading in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross.

It didn't take Spurs long to equalise, with Erik Lamela scoring shortly afterwards with a fine strike to make it 1-1 (23).

Pep Guardiola’s side regained their advantage before half-time when De Bruyne crossed low into the area and Sergio Aguero swept the ball in from six yards out (35).

Lucas Moura equalised with his first touch of the game, after he beat Kyle Walker to head in Lamela's corner and earn his side a point with only their second attempt of the match.

City's frustration was compounded in stoppage time when Gabriel Jesus’ late strike was overturned by a VAR review following a handball by Aymeric Laporte.

It's a result that will really frustrate Guardiola, as his side completely smashed Tottenham in every statistic. They dominated possession (55%), shots on target (10) and overall shots (30) but that still wasn't enough as Spurs were clinical, scoring from their only shots on target.

City come into this match in good form, with a really clinical away performance against West Ham in their first match but they will be very keen to put the Tottenham result to bed with a win against Bournemouth. City have won all 8 of their PL meetings against the Cherries.

"We played incredible,” Guardiola said. “One of the best games we’ve played in our time together.We played good, but unfortunately we could not win.We’ll recover, train and prepare for the next game. We don’t have regrets, that’s the most important thing."

"The way we arrive, create chances and put Tottenham deeper when they wanted to press. Unfortunately, when they cross the line they score and then a set piece. Nothing else.We play Tottenham, one of the best teams in Europe."

"It’s a pity because it’s the last minutes,” Guardiola said. “When that happens, it’s tough. We play good and in the last moments we score a goal. All we can do is try to play like today as much as possible, be clinical. They are one of the best teams and what we have done against them was fascinating."

Pep Guardiola insists his side's performance against Tottenham was one of the best.

Tottenham vs Newcastle - 16:30 - Sunday 25th August 2019 - Sky Sports

Tottenham @ 1/5       Draw @ 11/2    Newcastle @ 11/1

Tottenham take on Newcastle in one of the final fixtures in this round of matches, with both sides at opposite ends of the form table.

Spurs come into this match on the back of two great results, with a hard fought win against Aston Villa and a clinical performance in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City, albeit with a little help from a late VAR decision.

The decision was very similar to the end of last season’s Champions League quarter-final tie between the two sides, when Raheem Sterling’s goal was scrubbed off in dramatic circumstances.

City took the lead on 20 minutes when Raheem Sterling scored for a second successive match after heading in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross.

It didn't take Spurs long to equalise, with Erik Lamela scoring shortly afterwards with a fine strike to make it 1-1 (23).

Pep Guardiola’s side regained their advantage before half-time when De Bruyne crossed low into the area and Sergio Aguero swept the ball in from six yards out (35).

It's a result that will really frustrate Guardiola, as his side completely smashed Tottenham in every statistic. They dominated possession (55%), shots on target (10) and overall shots (30) but that still wasn't enough as Spurs were clinical, scoring from their only shots on target.

Spurs will be looking to better their record against Newcastle, with both sides winning 21 times and drawing six times in their 48 encounters.

"We need to improve in our performance. But the most important thing is that we have the belief and the faith to come here with the mentality, maybe not playing at our best, but trying to fight. Without that mentality, it’s impossible to get the result we got today. That speaks very highly about the character of the team. I’m so pleased. That point is going to help us to be better."

"That is football! You know, it’s true we want to play in a different way but when you face a team like Manchester City, you see the bench and the players out, it’s clear they have the quality. They are a consistent team, solid, winning the last two Premier Leagues. We’re in a different process and that’s why we’re so happy to get the result."

Pochettino praised the character of his side after they came from behind twice to draw against Manchester City.

Newcastle Struggling

Newcastle come into this match on the back of two defeats from their opening two fixtures, with manager Steve Bruce under pressure early into his tenure.

Championship top scorer Teemu Pukki scored his first Premier League hat-trick, with the Finnish forward, who also struck in Norwich’s first match, opened the scoring with a sensational volley on 32 minutes.

Pukki then doubled his and the Canaries’ tally midway through the second half when he found the bottom-left corner with a low shot (63). He then wrapped up Norwich’s first win of the season with 15 minutes remaining, stroking home a left-footed shot inside the area to give Todd Cantwell a second assist (75).

Newcastle managed to pull one back late on through Jonjo Shelvey but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal for the Magpies, albeit their first goal of this new season. They remain without a point after two matches and face a tough match against Tottenham this weekend.

Newcastle will be desperate to get off the mark but with Tottenham and Arsenal in their first three matches it was always going to be difficult.

"We were simply disappointing and nowhere near good enough with and without the ball. We didn't do enough to influence the game especially at this level. We knew Norwich were going to be difficult."

"They played a certain way and they walked away with a Championship last year. We were under no illusion it was going to be difficult. We spoke about it but unfortunately it was a disappointing afternoon with and without the ball and we didn't do enough."

Steve Bruce admitted his side were nowhere near their best as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat against Norwich.

Wolves vs Burnley - 16:30 - Sunday 25th August 2019

Wolves @ 8/11       Draw @ 12/5    Burnley @ 7/2

Wolves host Burnley in their second home match of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, and they will be looking to register their first three points of the new season in the process.

They come into this match on the back of a 1-1 result against Manchester United, with Santo's men riding their luck but producing a superb second half performance to retain a point against the Red Devils.

The Red Devils dominated the first half and they took a well deserved lead as Anthony Martial superbly scored his second goal of the season from Marcus Rashford's pass to put Man Utd 1-0 up on 27 minutes.

Martial who scored his 50th United goal, nearly added his and United's second just before half-time when he skipped past Willy Boly before standing on the ball when he was in a shooting position.

Wolves' responded after half time with Raul Jimenez hitting the post with a superb header on 52 minutes, but three minutes later they levelled when Neves brilliantly curled the ball in off the crossbar from outside the penalty area (55).

The catalyst for this change was the introduction of winger Adama Traore, who terrorised United's defence on the left hand side but Wolves two set pieces were superbly worked.

Pogba had an opportunity to secure victory for Man Utd when he was fouled by Conor Coady, but his penalty was saved by Wolves goalkeeper Patricio with 22 minutes left.

Nuno Espirito Santo will be delighted as his side have gained another valuable point as they juggle Europa League qualification with two tough PL assignments in United and Leicester. They will be looking to build on those impressive performances as they seek to produce a fourth win in five matches against a stubborn Burnley size.

"I am proud of all the performance because this is what matters in this moment of the competition. It was a game of emotion, this is what Molineux enjoys and we have to thank them (the fans) so much because the atmosphere when we get control of the game and create chances, they really push us, amazing."

"Let’s do what we do, play with the energy we should play with, embrace the challenge and fight for the game. The boys fought for every single ball, it was so good, I’m very proud of them."

"They didn’t create us many problems, but the first time they did they were clinical. It was a fantastic goal. We had many problems and then I think the moment we started playing a bit more in the space we controlled the game."

Nuno was delighted as his side gained a valuable result and comeback against Manchester United.

Clarets Narrowly Beaten By Gunners

Sean Dyche's side come into this match on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat against Arsenal, with the Clarets struggling to convert their chances.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the match winner for the second successive match as his second-half goal made the difference as Arsenal beat Burnley 2-1 at Emirates Stadium.

It was his strike partner Alexandre Lacazette who fired Arsenal into a 13th-minute lead when he turned in a crowded area and squeezed a shot in off Nick Pope.

Chris Wood came close to scoring twice for the visitors Burnley, with his first effort a dragged shot wide and his second effort was a header that was well saved by Bernd Leno. But the visitors did manage to level and crucially just before the break when Ashley Barnes struck his third goal in two matches (43).

Arsenal struck back just after the hour mark (64) when Aubameyang restored Arsenal's advantage with a low strike that was set up by man of the match Dani Ceballos's second assist of the match.

Sean Dyche will be happy with his sides application but will be frustrated with the narrow margin of defeat in the end. Burnley will be looking to improve their PL record against Wolves, in four matches they have won just once and lost the other three.

"Overall, I’m happy. It’s tough in the Premier League, but the growth you show is important and we came here to take the game on today. The players now have their shoulders back a little bit more and they want to take these games on."

"The mentality is good and the key thing for me was getting on the front foot. It’s only a measure, but it means we have that edge to us and I’m happy with that. We have to keep giving performances like that though, because that’s the measure."

"It’s tough coming to places like this and getting something, so the disappointment is more to think about over the weekend,” added Dyche.

“I’m pleased with the performance though, particularly in the first half when we were very good. We mixed up our play and our pressing lines were very good."

Sean Dyche was happy with his sides performance but ultimately it was in a losing cause.
