Premier League: Red alert…

A new Saturday and that means a fresh round of fixtures in the Premier League.

The early game sees Leicester travel a short distance to take on Wolves. Both teams have had a tricky time of late, Wolves have lost five of their last seven home league games while Leicester have lost three of their last four in all competitions.

However, we note that 10 of the last 16 league goals Wolves have conceded have come from set pieces and they will be missing their dominant central defender Willy Boly after his red card against Manchester City.

With this in mind we’re going to take a punt on Leicester and England centre back Harry Maguire scoring, probably from a set piece. Unibet and bet365 offer 12/1 that he scores at anytime, and we’ll take this nice price. For the more adventurous, Paddy Power offers 14/1 that he scores with a header.

The late game today has the potential to be a cracker – Arsenal versus Chelsea. The first game between these two was an entertaining 3-2 victory for the Blues at Stamford Bridge.

Both teams have been struggling of late and the pressure is on given Manchester United’s form of late and the need for a Champions League place.

These two teams don’t like each other. While there hasn’t been a red card in the last four games between the two, there were reds in the previous three so we may be due. Additionally, today’s referee Anthony Taylor received some stick for not sending off Everton’s Andre Gomes last time out, in the midst of handing out five yellows. He could react today, so we’ll bet on a red card.

Recommendations:

Wolves/Leicester: Maguire to score anytime, 1 pt, at 12/1, bet365 and Unibet

Arsenal/Chelsea: Red card in the match, 1 pt, at 4/1, bet365
