Leicester City vs Manchester City

In these TV-dominated days it's rare to see a match of this calibre in the traditional timeslot, and we're expecting a super Saturday at the King Power Stadium.

Since their defeat against Leicester in the Community Shield and subsequent loss against SpursCity have rediscovered what made them champions with a pair of 5-0 home wins against Norwich and Arsenal.

And with injured duo Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne looking sharp in training this week, one or both could feature against the Foxes to boost City's chances even further.

However, as Pep Guardiola will know only too well, Brendan Rodgers' men are a tough nut to crack these days and Leicester are off and running with two wins from their opening three league games.

City are already looking in ominous form and will do for many at 4/7, but with the hosts netting in every game this season, both teams to score could also be a profitable play at 3/4.

Manchester United vs Newcastle

We're not sure how many black cats have crossed Steve Bruce's path lately but the beleaguered Newcastle boss can consider himself rather unfortunate that his side's latest trip to Old Trafford coincides with the return of the most prodigal of sons.

And with Cristiano Ronaldo set to make his second Man United debut in front of a packed house at Old Trafford, we're really fearing the worst for a Magpies side who currently look like they would struggle at Rochdale, let alone the Red Devils!

Bruce's side have just one point from three Premier League games and managed to reach new lows even for them at home to Southampton, conceding an injury-time equaliser after they themselves had scored at the death.

United are unbeaten in three matches this season with seven points on the board, and it's hard to make a case for anything other than a comfortable win for the red half of Manchester, especially with the form of Mason Greenwood who has scored in every game this campaign.

Even at 2/11 United will find a home in many a weekend acca but with the Magpies having conceded 14 goals in their last four trips to Old Trafford, we reckon a punt on a home win and over 2.5 goals will also give you a run for your money at a more acca-attractive 8/15.

Brentford vs Brighton

Not only does it roll off the tongue nicely but Brentford vs Brighton should be an entertaining encounter between two sides who have made unexpectedly strong starts to the Premier League season.

The hosts are unbeaten after a win and two draws while the visitors are a point better off after two victories and a defeat from their opening three matches.

That loss was in their previous game though as Everton earned a deserved three points at the Amex Stadium, and the disappointing manner of that defeat is leading us down a red and white coloured path.

Last time out Brentford went toe to toe with Aston Villa, earning a creditable 1-1 draw, and back at home with memories of that famous opening day win against Arsenal still at the forefront of their minds, we're happy to side with the Bees at a tasty 9/5.

Arsenal vs Norwich

For two weeks now Arsenal fans have had to endure this game being referred to as a relegation six-pointer, and while that may be a playful exaggeration what is not up for debate is that Mikel Arteta and his Arsenal side sorely need a win here.

The Gunners are pointless and goalless in the Premier League this season, and may need to buck both of those trends if Mikel Arteta is to stay in gainful employment beyond Saturday evening.

Luckily for the Gunners they're facing a Norwich side who have been almost as bad as them, losing all three of their Premier League games by a combined margin of 11-1.

Even in their sorry state we fully expect Arsenal to emerge victorious, but if you're not ready to pull the trigger at odds of 1/2, then with both sides scoring just one goal this season and Norwich sure to play safety-first, under 3.5 goals at 4/9 could be a nice acca addition.

Southampton vs West Ham United

New signing Nikola Vlasic's midweek goal was a good sign for West Ham fans, not that David Moyes' men need much help in front of goal as they have netted 10 times already in their unbeaten start to the season.

Four of those goals have come from Michail Antonio and he has also contributed three assists in what has been a blockbusting start to the campaign for Jamaica's newest international.

After two wins and a draw from their opening three games the happy Hammers will really fancy their chances of adding to their growing reputation at a Southampton side who have yet to win in the league this season.

7/5 on a Hammers victory looks to be a cracking price, but it's worth noting that Southampton led at Everton, scored against Man United and netted twice at St James' Park, so for the more conservative punters among you, 4/7 on both teams to score may be preferable.

Watford v Wolverhampton Wanderers

The Wolves away kit is set for a rare outing as Wanderers travel to Watford, and Bruno Lage's men will be looking to secure their first points of the Premier League season.

The visitors' points total only tells half the story though, as Wolves have shown more than enough in 1-0 losses to Leicester, Spurs and Man United to give us the belief that they can get something from a game which looks far more winnable.

Their cause will not be helped by the absence of Raul Jimenez due to a FIFA-sanctioned suspension, but if there's one thing Wolves have got used to lately it's being without their star striker!

Watford's form has dipped significantly since an opening day victory over Aston Villa, losing to Brighton and Spurs and failing to score in either match, but they have a decent recent record against Wolves, losing only two of their last six against the men from Molineux.

13/10 on a Wolves win could look very generous at full time but the value bet here in a clash between two evenly-matched outfits is the draw, at 11/5.

Reading vs QPR

Over in the Championship we reckon that high-flying QPR can continue their fantastic form with victory at Reading.

Unbeaten Rangers are third in the table after three wins and two draws and only the top two have netted more than their 11 goals this season.

Lyndon Dykes has bagged three of those and he also added to his growing reputation with Scotland's winner in a hard-earned victory over Austria in midweek, and he and his QPR team mates should carve through a Royals defence that has conceded 13 goals already this season, comfortably more than any other side.

13/10 on the away win looks to be outstanding value, with over 2.5 goals also a standout bet at 4/5.
