WMB TV – Premier League 17/18 – Week 1


Friday 11th August 2017



Arsenal v Leicester

  • Tom – “I fancy a debut goal for the new boy. He’s looked sharp in pre season, so I fancy him to bag on Friday night. Fairly decent odds for this too.” – To score at any time – Alexandre Lacazette
  • Olly – “Arsenal are prone to a slow start and have a lot of injury doubts. A draw wouldn’t surprise me!” – Match Outcome – Draw
  • Will – “Leicester had the worst away form last season. Cant see that changing here.” – Match Outcome – Arsenal

Saturday 12th August 2017


Watford v Liverpool

  • Tom – “Watford were terrible at the end of last year, and Liverpool always come out of the blocks quickly. Marco Silva doesn’t lose many at home, but they’ll need a few weeks to get used to his methods. Liverpool are going to start the season well.” – Half-time/Full-time – Draw/Liverpool
  • Olly – “Liverpool scored 14 goals in 6 Pre-season games. Think they will batter Watford, therefore there will be GOALS!” – Total goals – over/under 2.5 – Over
  • Will – “Liverpool have been scoring loads in pre-season. Klopp will get them off to a good start.” – Correct score – Liverpool 2 – 0

Palace v Huddersfield

  • Tom – “Palace have a new boss, and Huddersfield will be nervous on their Prem debut. I fancy this one to be a little bit cagey, under 2.5 looks tasty to me.” – Total goals – over/under 2.5 – Under
  • Olly – “The huddersfield played in top flight was against Crystal Palace in 1947. It was away at Selherst Park and the score was 0-0. Going for a repeat of history here.” – Correct score – Draw 0 – 0
  • Will – “The only goal that Huddersfield scored within 90mins to win the play offs was an own goal. Cant see them scoring here.” – To keep a clean sheet – Crystal Palace

Everton v Stoke

  • Tom – “Everton have made some very good signings this summer, so I fancy them to be strong this year. Stoke haven’t so I think they’ll struggle a touch. Everton home win seems likely to me, as Stoke are slow starters, they didn’t win until the 9th game of the season last year.” – Match Outcome – Everton
  • Olly – “Rouge going for a correct score, but I think this will be tight and Everton will edge it.” – Correct score – Everton 2 – 1
  • Will – “looks like a draw” – Correct score – Draw 1 – 1

Southampton v Swansea

  • Tom – “Both have good strike forces. Austin and Gabbiadini, for Saints. Llorente and Abraham for the Swans. I fancy goals in this, especially as Swansea don’t keep too many clean sheets. Very tidy odds for this.” – Both Teams to Score – Yes
  • Olly – “Southampton’s strike force is DANGEROUS. Think they could do damage against Swansea, but not without conceding” – Southampton To Win And Both Teams To Score
  • Will – “Got some great signings after finishing the season well last year. Could be good this year” – Match Outcome – Swansea City

West Brom v Bournemouth

  • Tom – “Bournemouth games always have goals. Last year they conceded 39 on the road, so they’re very attack minded. West Brom are at home so will fancy their chance, that means BTTS is happening.” – Both Teams to Score – Yes
  • Olly – “Got a feeling Bournemouth MIGHT nick it!” – Match Outcome – Bournemouth
  • Will – “Bournemouth to look promising but West Brom to keep them at bay.” – Match Outcome – Draw

Brighton v Man City

Sunday 13th August 2017


Newcastle v Spurs

  • Tom – “The last time they played it was 5-1 to Newcastle. These two teams seem to like scoring against each other, there have been 14 goals scored in the last three Premier League meetings between these two clubs at St James’ Park. Goals.” – Both Teams to Score – Yes
  • Olly – “Think this could be a high scoring game… Newcastle will be bang up for it! But Spurs have the players to score lots of goals. Maybe even go for over 3.5” – Total goals – over/under 2.5 – Over
  • Will – “Banana Skin. Geordie fans are going to be fierce on the opening day.” – Both Teams to Score – Yes

Man Utd v West Ham

  • Tom – “No team has won more opening day fixtures in the Premier League than Manchester United. Plus, West Ham have lost more opening day fixtures than any other Premier League club. I think they’ll frustrate United in the first half, but United will break them down. Massive odds too.” – Half-time/Full-time – Draw/Manchester United
  • Olly – “Lukaku has scored in 7 of his last 8 games with West Ham. He loves it. Reckon he will notch a couple this weekend too!” – To score at any time – Romelu Lukaku
  • Will – “Scored 4 already for United in pre season. Lets get him off to a good start.” – To score at any time – Romelu Lukaku
