WIN – DRAW – WIN TREBLE
Everton weren’t at their best last weekend, but they had plenty of chances in the first have to take all 3 points. New signings will take time to settle in and the suspension for Sigurdsson won’t help matters, but overall the squad is in good shape going into this season. It’s likely that Kean will start here and he’s a real wildcard for them up front. Watford were hammered 3-0 at home to Brighton, it was a terrible performance and serious question have to be asked. They’ve plenty of talented players and look good creatively, but they were a shambles defensively. Everton are a tough opposition at home and will fancy themselves heavily after last weeks result.
Norwich lost 4-1 against Liverpool but could have easily gone 2-0 up. They are explosive on the counter-attack and should have put early chances away, stage fright got the better of them at Anfield but is less likely to do so at home. Pukki and Buendia are the main threats going forward, but they’ve retained the defensive fragility shown in the Championship last year. Newcastle have spent plenty of money this summer but the signing of Bruce was uninspiring. A manager well known for being inadequate at this level could find himself at the mercy of a squad trying to transition to a new style of football. Rafa built the team on a solid defence, Norwich will be looking to expose a side not used to attacking and without the solidity of a set mentality. Value in a home win with BTTS.
Aston Villa showed for 80 minutes that they have the ability to cope with Premier League opposition but their last 15 minute capitulation is cause for concern. McGinn is a real class act and goes about his business in a less flamboyent but no less effective manner than his teammate Grealish. Villa have spent a lot of money but with Heaton, Mings & Grealish they have a good spine of the team, goals could become an issue, but plenty are expected from the midfield to compensate for the lack of a top striker. Bournemouth were poor on the opening day, but they’ve a good Premier League squad and are experienced at this level. They have goals but their defence is always going to be suspect due to Howe’s style. Bournemouth are a very streaky side, they tend to go on terrible runs followed by amazing ones. This could be the start of the terrible run. Home win.
Southampton had their chances away at Burnley but conceding 3 goals away from home to a side that is renknowned for being unable to score is a very worrying sign. It was tough conditions but defensive mistakes allowed Burnley to score goals without being very creative. Last season they looked better going forward, but the team still looks short of goals on paper. They are against a Liverpool side who have already played 3 games this season and a little bit of fatigue could be an issue. They have plenty of firepower but will need to improve on their defensive display in the Super Cup Final. Southampton might get a goal, but it’s unlikely, Liverpool will be licking their lips here. Away win , probably a -2 Handicap.
