5 Premier League picks: Free-scoring Leicester to breach miserly Watford defence

A couple of the top flight's biggest fixtures this weekend are likely to end level, which makes this tempting five-fold potentially very profitable

4/5 – Leicester to beat Watford

Watford’s defence has been the foundation of their impressive return to the Premier League, but it is unlikely to keep out free-scoring Leicester.

Jamie Vardy is the division’s top scorer, while Riyad Mahrez has also flourished for the Foxes.

The Hornets’ top scorer Odion Ighalo, meanwhile, is struggling with a knock and could miss out.

12/5 – West Ham and Everton to draw

Fifth-placed West Ham are enjoying a superb season, although last weekend’s defeat at Watford was their poorest performance of the season.

Everton have a superb record against the Hammers, with their only loss in 17 meetings being on penalties in the FA Cup last season.

The East Londoners have not beaten the Merseysiders in the Premier League in 14 attempts, but the home side’s form deserves respect and a draw is likely.

4/9 – Man City to beat Aston Villa

A midweek European trip can often be a disadvantage at the weekend, but City’s impressive win at Sevilla should only spur them on to continue their good form.

Manuel Pellegrini even managed to pull off that win without Kevin De Bruyne from the start, so the Belgian will be fit and fresh for Sunday.

Villa have lost nine of their last 10 and while they will surely improve under Remi Garde, it is too big an ask to avoid defeat to the league leaders in his first match.

3/1 – Arsenal and Tottenham to draw

Arsenal had a tremendous record against Tottenham for many years under Arsene Wenger, but since 2009/10 it has been dead level in the Premier League: five wins each two draws.

Both sides are, arguably, the two form teams in the division with Arsenal racking up five successive victories and Spurs unbeaten in 10.

The two clubs concede less than a goal a game, while Arsenal’s tortuous trip to Bayern will have been seriously more strenuous than Spurs’ home tie with Anderlecht, which is another leveller.

4/6 – Liverpool to beat Crystal Palace

Chelsea may have been bad, but Liverpool were impressive in victory at Stamford Bridge last weekend and can build momentum with a win at Anfield.

Although Palace started the season brilliantly, they have taken only a point from from their last three games and scored just once.

The Eagles have a good recent record against the Reds, but with Christian Benteke back up front, Jurgen Klopp’s side should have enough to claim all three points.
