Fresh from tipping Tottenham to beat Manchester City, our betting expert Jones Knows makes his Premier League predictions with wins for Arsenal and Liverpool.
Fulham vs Everton, Sunday 12.00pm
Everton have used 25 players this season – that’s more than any team in the Premier League.
That has been the major problem for Carlo Ancelotti. The drop off in quality from his first-choice XI to his back-ups make Everton a tough team to assess without knowing precisely who will be starting.
The return of Richarlison is an obvious boost as it’s been chalk and cheese in terms of performances from the first five games to the last three in which he missed. All those ended in defeat.
A fourth on the spin could be on the cards too against an improving Fulham, who didn’t lose too much of my faith in the defeat at West Ham.
There was nothing between the sides there as Scott Parker’s 4-4-1-1 formation with Tom Cairney, André-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Ademola Lookman in support of Aleksandar Mitrovic provided a nice balance in forward areas. That foursome can trouble a shaky Everton defence.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
Sheffield United vs West Ham, Sunday 2.00pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League
If relegation is to be staved off this season, Sheffield United need to break this winless run and fast. They are just the fifth team in the Premier League era to take one point from their opening eight games but two of those previous four teams did go onto survive.
However, the other two teams lost their ninth game and went down, so it shows the task ahead if Chris Wilder doesn’t pick up three points this Sunday in the ‘Carlos Tevez derby’. Key injuries and missing big chances at key points have been their downfall.
The Blades have only had their usual back three of John Egan, Jack O’Connell and Chris Basham on the pitch for 83 minutes this season – O’Connell is out for at least six months and Egan is a doubt this weekend.
An edgy afternoon is likely…
