Tottenham vs Fulham - Tottenham to win

Antonio Conte’s side are one of three teams in the league yet to lose a game after winning three and drawing two. They had an impressive opening day display against Southampton and came from behind to score a 96th minute equaliser at Stamford Bridge. They kept two clean sheets in a row following this and earned wins when they really weren’t at their best. Meanwhile, they drew to West Ham on Wednesday after a Thilo Kehrer own goal gave them the lead on the 34th minute.

Conte will be disappointed with his sides performance and will feel like they need to be far more clinical when Fulham travel up to north London on Saturday afternoon. Son will also be hoping to kickstart his season after a disappointing start has seen him go goalless in his first five, while Kane is in hot form after scoring four in five. 

Fulham will be happy with their start to the season after two wins and two draws has seen them move to 7th in the league on their first season back. They have looked like a real threat going forward, with their talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic bringing his Championship form to the Premier League. He has netted five in five so far and doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon.

They will have shocked a few this year, looking far more competitive than most thought and look like a real danger on the break. With that being said, Tottenham have been grinding out results recently and we expect them to do the same here.

Newcastle vs Palace - Newcastle to win

Newcastle have become somewhat draw specialists so far this season, drawing three of their opening five. They will feel hard done by with a 97th minute Liverpool winner handing them their first loss of the season on Wednesday night. However, Eddie Howe will be happy with their start so far.

They have looked very competitive and attacking, and their new signings seem to have fitted in extremely well. Alexander Isak looked sharp in the hour he played at Anfield and took his goal like he was already a world class striker. Infront of a rocking St. James’ Park, they could be difficult to beat this year. 

Likewise, Palace have also had a good start and have looked like a real threat. Patrick Vieira has got his side playing with real authority and has Wilfried Zaha in the form of his life. The Ivorian winger has scored four in four so far this season and is causing real problems for full backs coming up against him.

Making this feat even more impressive, they’ve had a tough run to start with, facing City, Liverpool and Arsenal already. As good as they have been going forward, they are yet to keep a clean sheet in the league. Because of this and the fact that the fixture is at St. James’ Park, we think Newcastle just about pinch this one.

Brentford vs Leeds - Leeds to win

Thomas Frank will be fairly content with his sides start to the season. They drew away to Leicester on the opening weekend then battered Man United 4-0 at the Brentford Community Centre. Since then, they have only lost one game to Fulham and drew with both Everton and Palace.

Ivan Toney is in fine form coming into this game, contributing to four goals in five games so far. The only negative on their season so far is the fact that they have only kept one clean sheet. They conceded three against Fulham and really struggled to deal with Alexander Mitrovic. 

Jesse Marsch has got off to a good start in his first full campaign with Leeds. They currently sit 6th in the league after winning two and drawing two of their first five games. Their only loss so far was to Brighton, where they were unlucky not to get a result. Marsch has them playing fluid and open football but has also set them up well defensively.

Rodrigo has been their standout player so far with four goals and an assist in their opening five fixtures, and they will be anxious to hear how long he is out injured for. Even without him in their side, they have players who have looked like real threats going forward. There are only five teams who have scored more than them this season, with Brentford being one of them, so we expect goals in this one. However, we think Leeds may just have that little bit more quality to get this one over the line in their favour.

Chelsea vs West Ham - Chelsea to win

Chelsea have had a bit of a rocky start with two wins and two losses in their first five. Thomas Tuchel will be disappointed with his side’s inconsistency after losses to both Leeds and Southampton. They were dominant against Tottenham but lacked the experience to get the result over the line.

The Blues have spent a lot of money improving their team this summer after the departure of several first team players left them with holes all over the pitch. Raheem Sterling has settled into life in London fairly well with three goals so far but will be hoping results pick up. This being said, their losses have come on the road and they remain unbeaten at Stamford Bridge, drawing one and winning one. 

West Ham have also had a bad start to the season and hadn’t even scored a goal before a 1-0 win at Villa Park last week lifted them off the bottom of the table. Since that win, they have hosted Tottenham at the Olympic Stadium and looked much better, drawing 1-1. Spurs dominated the ball mostly, but West Ham played well on the counter and created several clear-cut chances for themselves.

They have spent heavily to improve several first team positions, who are still finding their feet in England. Because Chelsea remain unbeaten at home, and the fact that West Ham have looked suspect at the back, we think the home team take this one.
