Manchester United vs Arsenal
It's safe to say there won't be a repeat scoreline from last year, but in a week where both clubs were involved in high scoring Capital One games, expect there to be goals at Old Trafford come Saturday lunchtime.

More fuel has been added to the United Arsenal fire with the summer move of Robin Van Persie! The Dutchman was the league's top goal scorer last campaign, and has started in fantastic form for the Red Devils, and I'm sure there will be many bets on him to score!

Manchester United haven't reached top gear yet but find themselves just a point off the leaders Chelsea, whilst Arsenal at times have been brilliant, but their points return isn't as high as they had hoped for.

Teams have beaten Arsenal when they've kept Santi Cazorla quiet, and if Manchester United can do so here, expect them to win!

Manchester United 3 Arsenal 2 - 22/1 - Lose £2.50

Manchester United to win - 8/11 - Returns of £4.31

Other Tips:
Robin Van Persie anytime goalscorer - 10/11 - Returns of £9.55
Both teams to score - 8/13 - Returns of £8.07
Over 2.5 goals - 4/6 - Returns of £8.33

Match returns - Profit of £10.26

Fulham vs Everton
Both sides came from early set backs to earn draws on last time out, however Everton will be the happier with their point considering Fulham had turned the game on its head against Reading to lead.

Martin Jol and David Moyes can both be pleased with how their sides have started the season, and if Fulham hadn't conceded late away to two of the three promoted sides then Fulham would be higher in the league.

Everton won at Craven Cottage 3-1 last year, but I can't separate them this time around.

Fulham 1 Everton 1 - 11/2 - Lose £2.50

Draw - 12/5 - Returns £8.50

Other Tips:
Nikica Jelavic anytime goalscorer - 7/4 - Lose a fiver
Both teams to score - 4/7 - Returns of £7.85
Everton first team yellow card - 10/11 with Bet365 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - Loss of £3.65

Norwich vs Stoke
Their 1-0 win over Arsenal appears to be a turning point in Norwich's season, as, including the win over the Gunners, they've won two from three in all competitions and rescued a point away to Aston Villa last week.

Leon Barnett was dismissed when these two met at Carrow Road last year
Stoke have started the season with too many draws, six from nine games to be precise, and at the moment they lack at cutting edge. With Michael Owen getting more minutes under his belt, I'm sure he'll start to score goals and help the Potters win more games.

Norwich need to win these sort of matches, and I fancy them to just edge it.

Norwich 2 Stoke 1 - 17/2 - Lose £2.50

Norwich to win - 8/5 - Returns of £6.50

Other tips:
Stoke first team yellow card - 4/6 with bet365 - Returns of £8.33
A headed goal to be scored - 22/10 with 188bet - Returns of £16
Draw HT/ Norwich FT - 5/1 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - £10.83

Sunderland vs Aston Villa
Both sides are in horrible form ahead of the game at the Stadium of Light, with Sunderland winning just one league game in 16, with Villa's form even worse, with just the solitary victory from their last 19 games!

Stephen Fletcher aside, Sunderland have struggled to find the net this year, whilst Aston Villa have continuously left their best out and out goalscorer on the bench, with Darren Bent failing to start any of their last three league matches.

I fancy the draw between these two out of sorts sides!

Sunderland 1 Aston Villa 1 - 5/1 - Lose £2.50

Draw - 12/5 - Lose £2.50

Other tips:
Christian Benteke to score anytime - 11/4 - Lose a fiver
Under 2.5 goals - 8/13 - Returns of £8.07
Half with most goals, Tie - 21/10 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - Loss of £11.93

Swansea vs Chelsea
Both sides bounced back from narrow Premier League defeats to win impressively in the Capital One cup. For long periods Swansea competed well with Manchester City, and only a Carlos Tevez wonder goal was the difference. Chelsea came back well from 2-0 down against the other Manchester side, but being reduced to nine men meant a late winner was inevitable.

Chelsea needed a late own goal to rescue a point last year, and Paddy Power are offering 7's on an own goal.

Back Chelsea to continue their fine league start with a win at the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea 1 Chelsea 3 - 12/1 - Lose £2.50

Chelsea to win - 4/5 - Lose £2.50

Other tips:
Both teams to score - 8/13 - Returns £8.07
Juan Mata to score anytime - 11/8 - Void as player didn't play
Chelsea to score in both halves - 7/5 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - Loss of £6.93

Tottenham vs Wigan
Tottenham put their defeat to Chelsea well and truly behind them with an impressive away win against Southampton, whilst Wigan won for only the second time in their 2-1 home victory against West Ham.

This fixture has seen all manner of results. Tottenham thrashed Wigan 9-1 in 2009, but the following year Wigan stunned White Hart Lane with a 1-0 smash and grab.

Last year Spurs won 3-1, and back the same result here.

Tottenham 3 Wigan 1 - 10/1 - Lose £2.50

Tottenham to win - 4/9 - Lose £2.50

Other tips:
Over 2.5 goals - 4/7 - Lose a fiver
Tottenham to score three or more goals - 6/4 - Lose a fiver
Jermaine Defoe and Clint Dempsey to score - 7/2 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - Loss of £20

West Ham vs Manchester City
West Ham got what they deserved as they lost to Wigan for a third consecutive time! Roberto Mancini's side are starting to do what their city rivals have done for donkey's year, win when playing poor, and that was on show in their 1-0 win over Swansea last Saturday.

Manchester City have conceded first in all of their four away matches, but have recovered to at least gain a point in all of them, and considering West Ham took the lead against Arsenal and lost, a bet on the Hammers to score first and fail to win is a good one!

Upton Park is never the easiest of places to go to, with West Ham losing just one league home game this year! Manchester City are now the only unbeaten Premier League side left and I fancy them to edge it!

West Ham 1 Manchester City 2 - 7/1 - Lose £2.50

Manchester City to win - 4/6 - Lose £2.50

Other tips:
Both teams to score - 4/6 - Lose a fiver
West Ham to score first - 13/8 - Lose a fiver
Edin Dzeko last goalscorer - 11/2 - Lose a fiver

Match returns - Loss of £20

Day returns - Loss of £41.42

QPR vs Reading
The only two sides still without a Barclays Premier League go head to head at Loftus Road on Sunday, and it's fair to say, the loser will be in a lot of trouble!

Pogrebnyak got the winner when these two sides met earlier this year in the Capital One Cup

Indiscipline cost Queens Park Rangers once more as they conceded a late winner away to Arsenal last week following Stephan M'Bia's stupid dismissal. Reading have shipped in 10 goals in their last two games, culminating in an incredible Captial One match midweek against Arsenal where they let a 4-0 lead slip.

I think it's safe to say there will be goals, and I fancy QPR to just edge it!

QPR 3 Reading 2 - 25/1

QPR to win - 5/6

Other tips:
Over 3.5 goals - 7/4 
Both teams to score - 8/13
Bobby Zamora and Pavel Pogrebnyak to score - 8/1

Liverpool vs Newcastle
Liverpool's week started brilliantly as they raced into a two goal lead in the Merseyside derby; however they failed to hold onto that lead and were eliminated from the Capital One Cup by Brendan Rodgers' old club 3-1 at Anfield.

Newcastle were fortunate to beat West Brom last weekend, with a Sammy Ameobi shot deflecting in off Papiss Cisse for a much needed victory!

Newcastle will fancy their chances at Anfield, but I think Liverpool will edge it in a  low scoring affair.

Liverpool 1 Newcastle 0 - 6/1

Liverpool to win - 4/7

Other tips:
Liverpool to win to nil - 6/4
Luis Suarez first goalscorer - 9/2
Under 2.5 goals - 11/10

West Brom vs Southampton
Back to back last minute 2-1 defeats for West Brom means for the first time questions are being asked of Steve Clarke's side, and Southampton at home is arguably their biggest game of the season so far, as a win will get them back on track!

Southampton were very poor in the first half against Tottenham last weekend, and that was only worsened by a rubbish 90 minutes against Leeds in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday! Manager Nigel Adkins apparently has a fight on to keep his job, and an away points are vital if he is to do so!

I don't think West Brom will walk it, but I fancy them to win, especially given their impressive form at the Hawthorns.

West Brom 2 Southampton 1 - 7/1

West Brom to win - 8/11

Other tips:
Both teams to score - 8/13
Over 2.5 goals - 8/13
Romelu Lukaku to score anytime - 11/8
