Everton 2014We have the third Friday night fixture of the season taking place this week as Everton welcome Crystal Palace. This is a game that promises goalmouth action at both ends with Everton only failing to score in 2 of their last 17 Premier League games at Goodison Park and had scored in all 5 of their league fixtures before last weekend’s shock defeat to Bournemouth. Palace themselves have found some form in front of goal, with 3 league wins in a row and 9 goals scored in those matches. Romelu Lukaku is a favourite to score first at 7/2, having scored 4 and assisted 1 in his last 3 league games and also scoring in this fixture in each of the last 2 seasons. For a bigger price, an away first goal by James McArthur is priced at 33/1 Alan Pardew has started to play the Scotsman in a more advanced position in recent weeks and its certainly paid off with him picking up 2 goals and an assist in his last 2 matches. The last two times these two teams met both resulted in a draw with the clash in March a ‘Bore Draw’ despite this, Everton are favourites to take the win at 8/11. Secure against a Bore Draw with bet365 by placing a pre-match bet on any Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time or Scorecast markets, if the game ends 0-0 bet365 will refund your stake!

On Saturday Chelsea’s visit to Hull will be of interest to plenty, Hull’s dream start to the season has turned into a nightmare, with just one point gained from their last 4 games and 9 goals conceded in their last 2. Chelsea have also come unstuck in recent weeks, losing 2 and drawing 1 of their last 3 league games after winning 3 from 3 at the start of the season, but they’ll be expected to get back to winning ways here priced at 1/2 with bet365.

manu vs leicesterIt’s a busy Sunday with 4 Premier League matches taking place, and kicking things off that day it’s Man United v Stoke City. Stoke picked up their first point since the opening day when they drew at home to West Brom last week, but 2 draws and 4 defeats from their opening 6 matches is a poor return for Mark Hughes’ men. Things could get worse on Sunday too, with Stoke up against a Man United side who last week scored 4 against last season’s champions at Old Trafford. The two teams last met in February earlier this year where The Red Devils succeeded with 3 goals to nil, prior to that however, Stoke took a home win with 2 goals to nil. A home win is more or less a cert given Stoke’s poor performance and is priced at 3/10 with bet365, should you fancy edging your bet a draw could be on the cards with Stoke desperate for any points they can get and is 19/4 with bet365.

The big game of the weekend is at White Hart Lane, where Tottenham host Manchester City. These 2 sides occupy the top 2 places in Man City 2014the league and are both undefeated after 6 games. Man City are averaging 3 goals per game in the league so far this season and have a great recent record against Spurs. Over the last 5 seasons they’ve won 7 of the league meetings between the sides, scoring 29 goals in the process. Tottenham did the double over City last season to give that statistic a little more respectability from their side, but the man to watch out for in this game is Sergio Agüero. He loves playing against Spurs, having scored 10 goals in 9 games against Sunday’s opponents. He has also bagged 5 goals in 4 league games so far in this campaign and in this kind of form will always be a strong contender for first goalscorer at 10/3 . Expect goals at both ends in this game though – both teams have scored in all but 2 of the last 10 games between the sides, so BTTS at 4/7 will be a popular choice.
