Alex Jack picks out his best bets for three Premier League games on Saturday, including Tottenham v Liverpool.
Everton to win to nil @ 7/5
West Ham to win to nil @ 7/5
Liverpool to win @ 6/5
Everton v Luton Town (15:00)
Starting with the big game at the bottom of the Premier League on Saturday, the pressure is already on relegation rivals Everton and Luton ahead of their meeting at Goodison Park.
Everton picked up their first league success of the campaign in a 3-1 win at Brentford last weekend before beating Aston Villa 2-1 in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Confidence in the Toffees’ squad will be on the up, whereas Luton have picked up just one point from their first five Premier League games and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of League One Exeter on Tuesday.
With just three league goals scored so far, finding the back of the net has been tough for the Hatters and that may well continue this weekend.
Considering how toothless Luton have been, Everton are good value to beat the Hatters without conceding.
West Ham v Sheffield United (15:00)
Sheffield United have also found life tough following promotion from the Championship and things won’t get any easier when they visit West Ham this weekend.
The Blades go into the game at the London Stadium following an 8-0 thrashing at the hands of Newcastle United at Bramall Lane last Sunday.
Goals have also been an issue for the South Yorkshire outfit with only Luton and Burnley having scored fewer times in the league than the Blades (5) this term.
As for West Ham, David Moyes’s men have started the season positively and are seventh in the standings heading into the weekend.
The Hammers won 3-0 at home and 1-0 away when the two sides last met in the Premier League during the 2020/21 season. And considering the Blades’ lack of a cutting edge, another West Ham win to nil looks decent value this weekend.
Tottenham v Liverpool (17:30)
The best is saved till last on Saturday as highflying duo Tottenham and Liverpool meet in north London.
Australian manager Ange Postecoglou has made a positive start at Spurs since switching Scottish champions Celtic for the Lilywhites, but he faces arguably his toughest test to date on Saturday.
A resurgent Liverpool look much more like their former selves after a tough 2022-23 campaign.
The Reds are second with five wins and a draw from their first six games and head to London full of confidence.
Liverpool also have a strong record in this fixture, going unbeaten in their last 12 meetings with Spurs.
The Reds did the double over Tottenham last term and, given their impressive form at the start of the campaign, are worth considering to pick up the three points in north London on Saturday.
