Sunday sees the first heavyweight fixture of the season. Frank Lamaprd's Blues take on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, and it's a great early chance to see how Chelsea measure up against one of the big boys.

In football betting, Liverpool are second favourites with the bookmakers to win the Premier League. Klopp's men are 2/1 to retain their league title this season.

    Match Verdict - Draw

    I'm really not sure which way this game will go. On another day the Saints would have got something from last weekend's opener at Selhurst Park.

    The 1-0 defeat to the Eagles was disappointing, but Ralph Hasenhüttl's team know that if they play like that all season, they will be fine.

    Spurs on the other hand have higher aspirations than simply being okay. But their performance at home to Everton (they lost 1-0) was far worse that Southampton's.

    Jose Mourinho's team will be buoyed by the arrivals of Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon (neither are available for this fixture), but their were rumblings of discontent amongst the players after Jose's criticism of them last weekend.

    I've not really got a clue what to expect from this one, so I'm not touching this match from a betting perspective.

    Match Verdict - Home Win

    Similar to Saints V Spurs, I've not really got too much idea how this one will go.

    Newcastle got off to a flyer last week with a 1-0 away win to a useless looking West Ham. Been as the Hammers were that bad, it's hard to say how good Newcastle actually were (or not).

    Brighton actually played a decent match against Chelsea, and but for a couple of stupid mistakes may well have got more out of the match.

    Winning away in the Premier League is hard work, and with Callum Wilson now in the team, Newcastle will score more goals this season.

    I expect this to be a low scorer, and I believe Callum Wilson may well cap his home league debut with a goal.

    Match Verdict - Draw

    Another match that could really go anyway. On paper it looks to have goals written all over it, although that doesn't always materialise.

    It will be fascinating to see how Chelsea's new attacking signings fare against Liverpool's established back line.

    It has to be said though that the Red's much vaunted defence wasn't very solid looking against Leeds last weekend. The same defence also had its moments during the title run in, post lock down!

    I expect Chelsea to score today, and I can't see Liverpool not scoring either. Look at Mo Salah's performance last week!

    Both teams to score is just 1/2 with Betfair, that looks the safe bet to me.

    If you think that's too short, Over 2.5 Goals is 3/4, with Over 3.5 Goals coming in at 15/8. I believe all have a chance of happening in this fixture.

    Leicester V Burnley

    • King Power Stadium
    • Kick Off 7pm

    Match Verdict - Home Win

    The Foxes got their league campaign off to a flying start with a 3-0 win over newly promoted West Brom last weekend.

    A home fixture against Burnley could be the ideal match for building upon that win. The Clarets didn't play last weekend, and as I mentioned in my pre season premier league predictions, I don't think all is rosy in the Burnley garden.

    Jamie Vardy hit the ground running as well last week, so all looks set for another Leicester victory.

    Burnley are the Premier League's chief spoilers, granted, but that doesn't always translate into points.

    I see a tight turgid match, with Burnley focusing more on not losing, and Leicester edging it 1 or 2-0.
