MatchDay 6 - Saturday

West Ham vs Tottenham

It doesn't get much bigger than this for West Ham. They've twice dented Tottenham's title hopes in the past two seasons, though this fixture comes a little early in the Premier League calendar. Mauricio Pochettino's side have been faultless on the road and are yet to concede a goal away from home, which is why they're favourites at 8/13 with SkyBet. The hosts are at 9/2, which may be tempting as Pochettino has only won once in east London, but it's still a stretch as West Ham have been poor so far this season. 

Burnley vs Huddersfield

The Clarets have tested the top teams this season, taking five points off Chelsea, Tottenham, and Liverpool. This is more their territory and they are usually very difficult to beat at home. As for David Wagner's side, who are 13/5 to win, they should give a good account of themselves as they've only lost one game so far this term. 

Everton vs Bournemouth

Ronald Koeman absolutely has to win this one after the Toffees' woeful start. The Dutchman isn't quite under pressure yet because his side have had such unenviably difficult games, but anything less than a win against Bournemouth, and serious questions will be asked. The Cherries will be looking to Jermain Defoe, who scored the winning goal against Brighton, and he's at 15/2 to score and win. Everton should have enough in their locker, though, and there's decent value in a home win with over 2.5 goals at 11/8. 
 

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson has walked into a mess at Selhurst Park and things aren't about to get any easier. Palace are yet to score a goal in the league this season and while City aren't perfect at the back, this seems like a game that's only going to go one way. Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane to score is at 3/1, and both have been in great form in front of goal. Aguero to net a hat-trick has been boosted to 12/1 - all in all, it's set to be a miserable afternoon for the Eagles. 
 

Southampton vs Manchester United

United have been thoroughly impressive in all competitions and while Mauricio Pellegrino has instilled a tight defence at Southampton - keeping three clean sheets in their first five games - it's unlikely they'll keep Romelu Lukaku and co. at bay. The Belgian is the obvious choice to score first, but Marcus Rashford is in confident mood; the pair are at 13/2 to both find the back of the net. 
 

Stoke vs Chelsea 

Stoke have already surprised Arsenal and drawn with United this season, so Antonio Conte will be wary as his side head to the bet365 stadium. The Potters lost to Newcastle last time out, however, so the Blues shouldn't have too many problems overcoming them. Some fans still seem to be divided on Alvaro Morata, but the Spaniard is at good value at 4/1 to score first. 
 

Swansea vs Watford

Since they've both been in the top flight, it's been fairly evenly matched between these two, with Swansea winning one, drawing one, and losing two of their four meetings. The Hornets have looked much more respectable under Marco Silva, even if they suffered a drubbing at the hands of City last time out. They're 21/10 to win at the Liberty Stadium, a ground where Swansea are yet to pick up a point this season. 
 

Leicester vs Liverpool

The Foxes may have beaten the Reds in the Carabao Cup, but they'll be fortunate to pull it off again.
