Premier League Tips 27/09/20

The day's action gets underway at high noon at Bramall Lane. Before we take in Spurs' at home to Newcastle.

Then the main order of the day is Pep's Manchester City at home to Leicester, before West Ham host Wolves in the late kick off.

Sheffield United V Leeds

Sheffield United have two defeats from two so far this season. The manner of the defeats wasn't great either.

I can understand the 2-0 reversal to Wolves at home, but the 1-0 defeat away to Aston Villa will be the one that should worry Chris Wilder the most.

Leeds on the other hand have had a mixed start to the season. They've shown they have goals in them, but there have been negatives and positives for me.

For all the plaudits they got in the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool on Matchweek 1, there was enough cause for alarm with the way they let Fulham back in the contest last weekend.

That said, I'm still going with Bielsa's team to edge this one.

Premier league away wins don't come easily, but I feel there is far more freedom in Leeds' play at the moment. The same certainly can't be said of Sheffield United.

And after all I have tipped Sheffield to go down, so I have to stick to my guns on this one.

Tottenham V Newcastle

Spurs are another Jekyll and Hyde sort of side who you never know what you're going to get from them.

The opening week defeat to Everton was a damp squib, followed up by last weekend's fast free flowing football in the 5-2 win over Southampton.

I'm going to tip Spurs - reluctantly at 4/9 - to win this one, but mainly down to the level of the opposition, as opposed to the level of Spurs.

Newcastle won an awful match on the opening weekend against West Ham - more a reflection on how poor the Hammers were.

Then they were outplayed at home the following weekend by Brighton.

Would I surprised to see Spurs make a mess of this? No I wouldn't. But when it comes down to it, Newcastle are a poor side (they do have a decent goal scorer in Callum Wilson).

So I can only go with a home win in this one.

    Man City V Leicester

    Man City got their season off to the ideal start last weekend with a decent win away at Wolves.

    They still don't have that same swagger they had a couple of season's back though for me. They are my tip to win the league, but I'm still not totally convinced by them at times.

    This could be down to the loss of David Silva and the injury to Sergio Aguero. It could also in part be down to the central defensive problems, and Pep trying to gradually introduce Phil Foden into the side.

    For Leicester, they had a decent 4-2 win over Burnley last Sunday night. It wasn't as convincing as the score line suggests though. Burnley did have their chances at 3-2.

    The bottom line here though is that Man City are at home, and who can back against them?

    Verdict - Home Win @ 1/3 with Betfair

    West Ham V Wolves

    I've got to be honest and say that I'm far from impressed by what I've seen of West Ham so far this season. They finished the last campaign on a high, and in decent form.

    This season they have started off looking more like the shambles that originally got them into bother last time out. They are an infuriating team, and the Hammers' fans must regularly tear their hair out.

    The Hammers are starting to remind me of Sunderland when they were in the Premier League. Every year they would struggle. It didn't seem to matter wo was managing them, they would get themselves into bother.

    Then at the last minute, they would put a run together and get out of trouble.

    Eventually Sunderland's luck ran out, and eventually the same will happen to the Hammers. It might not be this season, but it will be soon. Something just doesn't seem right at the club.

    Wolves on the other hand just keep on ticking over. They've lost a couple of big players this season, but they won easily at Sheffield United, and mounted a decent enough comeback against Man City last Monday night.

    It's hard to see anything other than a Wolves win in this one.

    Verdict - Away Win @ 6/5 with Betfair
