Manchester United v Leicester
Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United are the form team in the Premier League so far this season. Two games played, 4-0 wins in both. Romelu Lukaku has hit the ground running and former Chelsea man Nemanja Matic seems to be completely revitalized United’s midfield.
In Leicester, though, United face their toughest test yet. The 2016 Champions almost pulled off a remarkable opening day win against Arsenal, only for late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud to deny them. Last weekend they got their season on track, a comfortable 2-0 win against newly-promoted Brighton will have pleased Craig Shakespeare.
This game could go either way. If Manchester United can continue putting sides to the sword, they could sweep Leicester aside. I think they may come crashing down to earth, though. Leicester is a good team under Craig Shakespeare and they could burst the Red Devil’s bubble.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Leicester City 1.00 at 2.780
Huddersfield v Southampton
If you’d told Huddersfield fans that they would win both of their opening Premier League games without conceding a goal, they probably would’ve laughed at you. The start of the season has been that much of a dream for fans of the Terriers.
David Wagner’s men play exciting, expansive football and it has swept Crystal Palace and Newcastle United aside so far. Australian Aaron Mooy is key to how they plan and will be hoping to continue his fine start to the season.
In Southampton, Huddersfield may be facing their the toughest opponent yet. Mauricio Pellegrino seems to have his side well drilled already and will be looking to build on their late win against West Ham. Southampton has not set the world alight so far this season, so will have to step up to beat Wagner’s Huddersfield.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Huddersfield 0.25 at 2.160
AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City
Eddie Howe will be wondering how his Bournemouth side has started the season so badly. Following their 1-0 loss to West Brom, Howe revealed he didn’t know what was going wrong for his side. That’ll worry the fans.
Their midweek tie against Harry Redknapp’s Birmingham City in the EFL Cup gave a glimmer of hope for Howe’s side, with goals from Ryan Fraser and Marc Pugh.
In Manchester City, Howe’s side couldn’t have faced a stronger outfit as they look to build on that midweek win. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have recruited well over the summer and have invested a lot of money in improving towards a title challenge.
Up front, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero look like the league’s best forward partnership and a lot of Premier League defenses will be fearing them. They’ll have to make do without new full-back Kyle Walker for this one, who is suspended after his red card against Everton.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Manchester City -1.75 at 2.230
