Saturday's 5/1 FavFour accumulator covers action from the Premier League.
Chelsea vs Wolves – Chelsea
Chelsea come into this game off the back of a dominant Champions League display vs AC Milan and are yet to lose under new manager Graham Potter. They have won two and drew the other of Potter’s first three games in charge and have looked like an attacking threat throughout.
They currently sit 5th in the league, eight points adrift of the top and Potter will be looking for a good result in his first Premier league game at Stamford Bridge to create a platform to progress from.
Wolves come into this fixture after sacking their manager Bruno Lage. The West Midlands side sit 18th in the league and have won only once all season. They lost their last Premier league outing 2-0 away at West Ham and before that they were thrashed 3-0 at home by City and it seems like the board had enough of their manager's poor run of form.
Yet to appoint a new boss, Wolves will be without a manager on their visit to west London and we think they’ll struggle once more. Chelsea look like they’re coming into form and we think they’ll stroll past their visitors in this one.
Newcastle vs Brentford – Newcastle
Eddie Howe’s Newcastle have looked good this season, but the question got asked if they could perform without their summer signings. This scenario happened at the weekend, and they more then stood up to the task. They were dominant and won 4-1 away to a Fulham side who were unbeaten at home. Newcastle now sit 7th in the league, and they look like they are only progressing.
Brentford have had a good start to the season so far, sitting 10th in the league. They were held to a scoreless draw in the last match vs Bournemouth but were unlucky to come away without all three points. However, they have struggled on the road this season and they are yet to win away from the Community Stadium. We expect this to continue their visit to Tyneside and Newcastle to continue their good run of form.
Manchester City vs Southampton – Manchester City
City come into this game in excellent form, winning five on the bounce. They have been in fine goal scoring form too, with Erling Haaland heading their attacking efforts. They have scored 11 in their last two fixtures alone and they look incredibly threatening going forward. The Citizens are yet to lose and sit 2nd in the league behind Arsenal and we can’t see them losing here either.
Southampton’s Ralph Hasenhuttl is under huge scrutiny and is apparently close to being sacked following their slow start to the season. They sit 16th in the league, winning only two games and have now lost three on the bounce. With City coming into this game in such hot form and Southampton coming in off three consecutive losses, we can’t see anything else but a City win.
Bournemouth vs Leicester – Leicester
Bournemouth are still yet to appoint a new manager following the departure of Scott Parker after a 9-0 hammering to Liverpool. However, the Cherries are unbeaten since then, with three draws and a win vs Nottingham Forest.
They have climbed to 13th in the league and there are now calls for Gary O’Neil (best price 17/20) to be appointed as manager on a permanent basis. He will hope a result vs Leicester could move this along but the Foxes come into this fixture in high spirits.
Brendan Rodgers job has been under scrutiny all season. They sit second bottom of the league, having lost six of their eight games so far. Before their game vs Forest, many had written the Foxes off for this season, but a stunning 4-0 win may have changed the wind in their direction.
James Maddison has been a bright spark for them this season as he tries to prove to Gareth Southgate he should be on the plane to Qatar in November.
He is just one of many players in the Leicester team with quality and something to prove this season. For this reason, we think Leicester may start to change their season round and pick up another win.
