Premier League: Vardy quick off the mark..

The first game Monday sees Fulham host West Brom at Craven Cottage.

Both teams have struggled with their return to the top flight, both conceding 14 times in their six games this season. Only league leader Liverpool has conceded more!

Both have tried to shore up their defences of late, but we can’t let go of the fact that Fulham have conceded three times from set pieces already this season.

West Brom central defender Semi Ajayi scored five times last season, and we’ll take the 22/1 on offer that he scores with his head tonight.

The late game sees Leeds take on Leicester, with the winner set to climb into the Champions League qualifying positions.

Both teams should be full of confidence after impressive victories last time out, and thus should lead to an open game. Leicester are likely to play the same way as they did when visiting Manchester City and Arsenal, sitting back and trying to hit on the break with their pace.

In Jamie Vardy they have just the man to take advantage of this approach. It does help that he also takes penalties. We’ll take William Hill’s enhanced 4/1 that he nets first.

Recommendations:

Fulham/West Brom: Ajayi to score a header, 1 pt, at 22/1, SkyBet

Leeds/Leicester: Vardy to score first, 1 pt, at 4/1, William Hill
