We have picked out some potential goal-fests for your BTTS weekend acca.
Saturday 15:00 Fulham v Palace - YES
While Fulham have been splashing the cash this summer, it's easy to forget that they are still a newly promoted team. Their army of new signings will still take time to adapt to a new league and surroundings.
Palace are hoping it doesn't take them as long as last time to score their first goal of the season. Their Zaha factor could be decisive in this tie, so this should be a good BTTS candidate.
Saturday 15:00 Stoke v Brentford - YES
Championship title favourites meet promotion dark horses. Stoke City got a rather rude awakening last week, losing comfortably 3-1 to Leeds United. It does not get much easier for them this weekend, as they prepare to welcome Dean Smith's Brentford to the Bet365.
While Stoke are favourites to win, Brentford have been notorious over the last few years for scoring and conceding plenty. They will go to Stoke with absolutely no fear - encouraged by The Potters shipping three against Leeds - so the BTTS likelihood is high here.
Saturday 15:00 Huddersfield v Chelsea - YES
This one may come as a surprise. While most are expecting a routine Chelsea win, I can’t help but think The Blues look fallible at the back. Sarri showed last Sunday that his side were by no means watertight defensively – admittedly they will not be up against Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane on Saturday – and they showed enough holes to give Huddersfield hope of scoring.
I still think Chelsea will win, but Huddersfield will not roll over. Laurent Depoitre will do his usual hustling-and-bustling which David Wagner will hope causes Chelsea defenders problems. I’d say this is a slight outside shout, but it certainly boosts your acca.
Sunday 13:30 Liverpool v West Ham - YES
We all know about Liverpool’s ability to score plenty of goals, so backing them to find the net in this match should come as no surprise. I do think West Ham will score as well, particularly because Liverpool don’t have a 100% fit centre-back to partner Virgil Van Dijk. Alisson will add much more security to that back line, but West Ham – particularly in the shape of Marko Arnautovic – possess the players to potentially hurt Liverpool.
Klopp’s Liverpool rarely go through matches without giving away some sort of an opportunity to the opposition. It’s partly down to the way they play, but it’s a characteristic of Klopp sides which I cannot see totally disappearing just yet, so don’t be surprised if The Hammers can snatch one.
Saturday 17:30 Wolves v Everton - YES
Another tasty looking affair. There will be plenty of eyes on Nuno’s Wolves on Saturday to see how their new signings make the cut in the Premier League (spoiler: probably very well). They go into this one as slight favourites against an Everton side who have had a brilliant transfer window themselves.
The arrivals of Bernard, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina surely makes Everton’s deadline day one of the best in recent memory. They join Richarlison and Lucas Digne in a very exciting looking Everton side. Their spearhead on Saturday will be Cenk Tosun, who I reckon will have a brilliant season, and I’m backing him to score for The Toffees.
It should be an exciting, open game which I’m hoping will lead to goals for both sides!
This five-fold acca will give you lovely odds of 20.43/1.
