It wasn’t the greatest weekend we’ve ever had for Premier League tips last time out, but last weekend did produce some surprise results, which I think would have scuppered many a football accumulator bet up and down the country. Let’s take a quick look at last weekend’s results in the Premier League and the latest table before we look ahead to the coming weekend’s fixtures.
Matchday 3 Results (25th to 27th August)
- Wolves 1-1 Manchester City
- Southampton 1-2 Leicester City
- Arsenal 3-1 West Ham United
- Bournemouth 2-2 Everton
- Huddersfield Town 0-0 Cardiff City
- Liverpool 1-0 Brighton
- Watford 2-1 Crystal Palace
- Fulham 4-2 Burnley
- Newcastle United 1-2 Chelsea
- Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur
The stand out result of last weekend was the final one from Monday night when Tottenham secured a superb 3-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, handing United their worst home defeat in many a year. Chelsea, Liverpool, Watford joined Spurs in maintaining their 100% starts but Man City and Bournemouth saw theirs disappear as both only managed to grab draws in their games.
Cardiff remain the only team yet to score a Premier League goal after their 0-0 draw with Huddersfield, while Liverpool are the only team yet to concede a goal after their 1-0 won over Brighton. Luckless West Ham are the only team in the Premier League at the moment to have failed to pick up a point following their defeat to Arsenal at the weekend. All of which leaves the league table looking like this:
Premier League Table (28th August 2018)
In terms of goal scoring, there are six players tied on three goals apiece at the start of the season. They are Mitrovic (Fulham), Moura (Tottenham), Aguero (Man City), Mane (Liverpool), Pereyra (Watford) and Richarlison (Everton).

Our Other Selected Premier League Weekend Bets
In addition to the Full Time Result individual bets, or the tenfold accumulator outlined above, there are a number of individual bets on certain games that I think offer good value for money for the soccer punter. I have outlined these below together with my reasons as to why they look like being a decent bet. As always, the odds provided for the bet are correct at the time of writing with bet365 Sport.
Leicester City v Liverpool – Wincast – Sadio Mane to score first and Liverpool to win – 6/1
Mane didn’t have the best of games against Brighton last week but he has been Liverpool’s sharpest striker early in the season and I am backing him to get back to winning ways against a Leicester side who will most likely be susceptible to pace on the counter. I can see Mane grabbing the opener and Liverpool then going on to clinch a win in what will be a tough game for the Reds.
West Ham v Wolves – Correct Score – West Ham 1-1 Wolves – 11/2
Wolves have already proven themselves as being something of a draw expert in the Premier League with two draws in their opening three games. The situation for West Ham is now dire and they badly need something from this home game. The problem is, I think Wolves are very strong and while I can see the Hammers scoring a goal, I also feel Wolves will too, hence why I think the 11/2 on a 1-1 draw is a good value bet.
Cardiff City v Arsenal – Result/Both Teams to Score – Arsenal to win/No – 13/8
Arsenal’s defence has been somewhat porous in their first few games this season but against a Cardiff City side yet to score, I think it will be the easiest day for the Gunners defence of the season so far. Add to that Arsenal’s dangerous attack, especially on the counter and I can see the Gunners winning this game and Cardiff struggling to find the net once again.
Burnley v Manchester United – Correct Score – Burnley 1-2 Manchester United
Both of these teams badly need a win after poor starts to the season but I think Manchester United’s need is greater at this stage and I feel the quality they possess going forward will be the key factor against a Burnley defence which has looked somewhat disorganised in the opening weeks of the season. Sean Dyche’s men will put up a fight and may grab a goal, but I think United just eke out the win here by a 2-1 scoreline.
Watford v Tottenham – Result/Both Teams to Score – Tottenham to win/Yes
Two of the 100% records in the Premier League will be on the line at Vicarage Road on Sunday as Watford and Spurs clash. Watford have started the season superbly and deserve to be where they are in the table but Spurs have too and that win over Man Utd on Monday night was superb. I’m backing this to be a game with goals but for Spurs to just about come out on top.
