17th August: Saturday’s Premier League Accumulator – 21/1

With the Premier League making its return last weekend, all eyes are once again on England’s top-tier this weekend. On that note, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips that can boost your Saturday acca:

Saturday 17th August

BST 15:00 Brighton vs West Ham

Starting with Saturday’s hosts, shocking many and picking up a very impressive 3-0 win away at Watford last weekend, Brighton have really started to shine under new boss Graham Potter. With the mood in their camp arguably the highest it has been in recent memory, the Seagulls have their sights set on securing a top-half finish this season and will also be boosted by their 2-1 win over La Liga heavyweights Valencia in their final pre-season appearance. One man to watch this weekend will be new £20million arrival Neal Maupay. Opening his Premier League account against Watford on his debut, the former Brentford marksman also recorded 25 Championship goals last season, the second-highest return in the division. While Brighton may have enjoyed an eye-catching opening weekend, the same can not be said for Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Suffering a 5-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City in East London on Saturday, the Hammers are still struggling with some glaring defensive issues and also hold a very worrying record against Saturday’s hosts. West Ham have failed to win any of their last four matches against Brighton, losing three of those contests.

Tip: Brighton win @ 31/20

15:00 Everton vs Watford 

Although Everton may have broken the bank and splashed over £100million this summer, the Blues struggled against Crystal Palace in last weeks opener and could only manage a 0-0 draw. Still dreaming of securing a European return for Goodison Park this year, former Watford boss Marco Silva will be growing more concerned by his sides’ form in the final third. Once again failing to find the net at Selhurst Park last weekend, the Blues have managed to find the net just once in over 500 minutes of action. Despite their sluggish form in the final third, Saturday’s hosts certainly saved their best performances for home soil last season and will be glad to make a return to Merseyside this weekend. Winning each of their final four Premier League matches at Goodison last season, they also recorded victories over Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal on that winning run. As for the visitors, after suffering a surprise 3-0 hammering at home to Brighton last weekend, Javi Garcia’s men appear to be showing a hangover from a worrying end to the 2018/2019 campaign. Including a 6-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City in the FA Cup final back in May, the Hornets lost five of their last six matches away from Vicarage Road last season.

Tip: Everton win and under 2.5 goals @ 7/2

17:30 Manchester City vs Tottenham

Along with picking up the Community Shield thanks to a penalties victory over Liverpool earlier in the month, Manchester City have really set down an early marker in England’s top-tier. Putting five past West Ham in last weekends Premier League opener, the mood in Pep Guardiola’s camp is on a high and the defending champions have their sights firmly set on lifting their third consecutive domestic crown. One man who really caught the eye at the London Stadium last weekend and has continued to shine over the summer is England international, Raheem Sterling. Bagging a hat-trick against the Hammers last time out, the PFA Young Player of the Year has now registered six goals in his last four matches across all competitions. As for Tottenham, although Mauricio Pochettino’s men may have battled back to secure a 3-1 win over a returning Aston Villa last weekend, the Whites did struggle for large spells in North London. Sadly for Spurs, although they may have managed to dramatically knock City out of the Champions League last season, they do hold a very worrying record against the defending Premier League champions. Losing six of their last seven matches against Pep Guardiola’s side, they have also lost their last four matches at the Etihad.

Tip: Raheem Sterling to score anytime @ 1/1
