Premier League: Jolly Boly to win us the lolly…

After the relative success of Saturday’s Yankee, two winners and not much cash, Sunday offers another opportunity to win big.

One of the early games sees Leicester take on West Ham at the King Power Stadium. The visitors claimed their first league win of the season against Wolves last weekend and may well approach this game with confidence. But Leicester are flying at the moment, and we expect them to win.

Jamie Vardy has been on fire for the Foxes, but is odds on to score. Instead we’ll take a punt with Harvey Barnes. No player has registered more than his seven shots on target so far this season. He will take a pop!

Wolves take on Fulham this afternoon looking to rebound from their defeat to West Ham last weekend. And they couldn’t have pick a better opponent – Fulham have lost all three of their opening fixtures, conceding 10 in the process.

The Cottagers have also shown a worrying tendency of conceding at set pieces. With this in mind, we’re going to take a punt and back big central defender Willy Boly to score. He’s yet to score this season, so it is a risk, but the defence he faces may offers his best chance of netting.

The highlight of the Premier League program this Sunday sees Jose Mourinho take his Tottenham to Old Trafford to take on his former side Manchester United.

It’s difficult to gauge which United team will turn up, with the only thing consistent about them being their inconsistency! That said, this is a big game and their players will be keen to put one over the Special One.

Bruno Fernandes scored a late winner (it was after the final whistle!) for United last weekend at Brighton from the penalty spot. And that’s key. There have been a number of penalties conceded so far this season, and thus we’ll side with the Portuguese star.

The late game sees Liverpool travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa. The hosts have done well this season so far after last year’s trauma but they now face a much more difficult test. Liverpool have won their last five Premier League away fixtures at Villa Park, by an aggregate score of 15-3. All roads point to an away win.

Sadio Mane has been the usual destroyer, scoring six in his last six against Villa, but he is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19. His place is likely to go to Diogo Jota, who has looked very sharp in his brief appearances to date – scoring the last goal in his side’s 3-1 win over Arsenal last week. We’ll side with him to net tonight.
