Premier League: Time to book Jorginho…

The highlight of today’s Premier League games is the clash between Tottenham and Chelsea in North London.

Spurs come into match having looked toothless in a 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, while Chelsea have only conceded one goal, a penalty at Anfield, and look every inch a title contender.

That said, we note with internet that Paul Tierney is taking control of this match, and he has fished out 15 yellows in his four games in charge – the most so far this season.

Jorginho may be the UEFA player of the year but he’s not fleet of foot, and we’ll take him to see yellow in the hurly-burley of a London derby midfield.

The early televised game sees West Ham host Manchester United at the London Stadium, missing talisman striker Michail Antonio.

The Hammers have started the season strongly, but will surely miss their main goalscorer – Antonio is suspended – when facing a team which is undefeated in 28 Premier League away games, the longest such streak.

Without their focal point up front the Hammers may struggle to hold on the ball, meaning they come under long periods of pressure.

This could translate into a number of set pieces, and opportunities for Harry Maguire to go forward. The English central defender is quoted at 16/1 to score a headers, and we’ll be on that.
