Premier League: Zaha starts Saturday Yankee…

There are four more games in the Premier League Saturday to enjoy, and hopefully this anytime goalscorer Yankee will help.

The opening match of the day pits Chelsea against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge. The hosts are clear favourites but have had a disappointing start given the expectations built up after a summer of heavy spending.

The main problem has been in defence, with Chelsea conceding six in their opening three games. The now face a Palace side which has looked very dangerous on the break. In Wilfried Zaha Palace have a talented forward who has already scored three times this season, including crucially from the penalty spot.

Next up is Everton against Brighton at Goodison Park. The hosts are in great form, sitting near the top of the table with a 100% record, and will be keen to keep this momentum going.

Brighton have also played well this season so far, but we tend to favour the home team on this occasion. In Dominic Calvert-Lewin the Toffees have a striker in prime form, and may be the safe bet to score. But James Rodriguez has shone under manager Carlo Ancelotti and is almost three times the price.

Next up is probably the game of the weekend, Leeds hosting Manchester City. This pits Marcelo Bielsa against Pep Guardiola, and has goals written all over it.

A lot of teams tend to sit back as a mark of respect for the attacking talent this City side has at their disposal, but I don’t think Bielsa’s Leeds will do this. And they could suffer as a result, especially as City will be champing at the bit to get the Leicester defeat out of the system.

Midfield star Kevin de Bruyne is a relatively short price to score today, at around 6/4, but he’s now on penalty duty and we think this still offers value.

The late game has something of after the Lord Mayor’s show about it, as Newcastle host Burnley.

These two teams are hardly flying at the moment, but there does seem to be a bit of tension between Burnley manager Sean Dyche and his board at the moment, so we’ll side with the hosts!

Newcastle were awful midweek against League Two side Newport, peeking up just enough late on to force penalties. The catalyst for the improvement was the introduction of Callum Wilson. He’s a quality striker, and we’ll take him to score tonight.
