MatchDay 10 - Saturday

Manchester United vs Tottenham

United's unbeaten run is finally over after their surprise slip-up against Huddersfield. They face a Spurs side who have won all of their away league games so far this season and who are joint-second with them thanks to last weekend's outstanding victory over Liverpool. The Lilywhites' odds of 11/5 will tempt a few, particularly as Harry Kane shows no signs of letting up. The obvious comparison here is Kane vs Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian is at 5/4 to score in 90 minutes, but Kane is at an even better 11/8 - and the double Golden Boot winner's most recent brace means he's the league's top scorer. 
 

Crystal Palace vs West Ham

It just keeps getting worse for Crystal Palace after they were thrashed in the Carabao Cup by Bristol City. Slaven Bilic has endured a similarly miserable start to the season, though his side are riding high after their incredible turnaround against Spurs in midweek. There's talk that the Croat has two games to save his job, so the first shouldn't cause him too many problems; West Ham are at 21/10 to inflict Palace's ninth defeat in ten games. 
 

West Brom vs Manchester City

Depending on how United and Spurs fare in the early kick-off, City will have a great chance to extend their lead at the top of the table. It goes without saying that Pep Guardiola's side are expected to cruise once again, especially as they've won their last 12 games against West Brom. One thing to look out for is that in 75% of their last meetings, both teams have scored - for that to happen again and City to win is at 7/4. 
 

Liverpool vs Huddersfield

It's no exaggeration to say that Jurgen Klopp is under huge pressure with his side now ninth. He'll take solace in the fact that out of 16 goals conceded this season, only one of those has been at home. If this were at the John Smith's Stadium, Liverpool might have problems, but fortunately, the Terriers have only won once on the road this term. Mohamed Salah will once again be key in Sadio Mane's absence, with the Egyptian at evens to score in 90 minutes. 
 

Watford vs Stoke

Stoke have endured a characteristically bad start to the season, whereas Watford's fortunes have been very different. The Hornets have scored eight goals in their last four games despite some difficult fixtures, so we're backing over 2.5 goals and a home win. SkyBet's best offer is 21/10 for the hosts to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1. 
 

Arsenal vs Swansea

Arsene Wenger took the opportunity to rest some key players in the League Cup, so his trio of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, and Alexandre Lacazette which was so deadly against Everton should be firing on all cylinders. However, Swansea are no strangers to causing an upset against the Gunners - they've won three, drawn one, and lost three of their last seven meetings. They haven't been travelling particularly well, though, winning just one league game on the road this term. 
 

Bournemouth vs Chelsea

It was a close shave for Chelsea against Watford last time out and their defence is by no means infallible. Bournemouth haven't exactly been free-scoring, but they'll be looking to capitalise on the Blues having conceded eight goals in their last four games. Michy Batshuayi continues to surprise everyone, not least Antonio Conte, and the Belgian at 11/10 is more tempting than Alvaro Morata at 10/11 - if the former Marseille man is given another opportunity thanks to his goalscoring run. In terms of minutes per goal ratio, Batshuayi easily eclipses the Spanish international.
