Everton vs Leicester

Both Teams to Score 

Last campaign, only four sides in the top flight conceded more goals than Everton. In the summer, they addressed the issue directly, signing two centre backs and two defensive midfielders.

Having last conceded a goal in the Premier League exactly four hours ago, a wonder strike courtesy of Miguel Almiron, and averaging one GA per game, it appears to be a problem solved.

However, the Toffees underlying data suggests different. They have conceded 12 actual goals, but an xGA of 23, suggesting they have in fact been very fortunate.

I fancy goals to be rife in the televised game against Leicester, a side whose 12 league games have already seen 46 goals!

Leeds vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth Double Chance

Since Gary O'Neil took the reins on the south coast, Bournemouth have become a lot harder to beat. 

Eight games into his temporary tenure and one goal or more has only separated his side from their opposition on one occasion, and that came courtesy of a 90th minute penalty against West Ham. 

The Cherries host Leeds, a bit of a perplexing opponent. 

Half of the 12 points United have accumulated this campaign have come via wins against Chelsea and Liverpool, two of the big six. 

Excluding their three games against the division's big boys, Jesse Marsch side have only won once, at Wolves on opening weekend. 

The counter-pressing, chaotic way in which the American supremo sets his stall out makes his side perfectly suited to large spells without the ball which explains why his side can go toe-to-toe with the best and struggle against the rest.

All things considered, I think siding with a Cherries result is the play at Elland Road.

Man City vs Fulham

Both Teams to Score

If you’re after goals, then these are the sides for you. 

Manchester City top the charts for goals scored with 36 domestically this season, they are also shipping 0.91 per game, only keeping a clean sheet in 50% of their EPL games. In all competitions, only four of the 10 sides to visit the Etihad have failed to score. 

Fulham’s stalemate with Everton was only the second time this season that either side in a game involving the Cottagers had failed to find the net, the previous was their trip to the Molineux.

Over those three hours of football, a combined xG of 6.12 was generated, with each team accumulated one.
