The Premier League is back this weekend and Cheeky is here to give you all of his best tips ahead of all the action.


Arsenal v Aston Villa
Villa have won their last three Premier League meetings with Arsenal, but despite this the Gunners go off as 20/23 faves on Friday night. From four home games so far Arsenal have won two, drawn one and lost one, so the Emirates has hardly been a fortress for them in recent times. They looked vulnerable defensively against Crystal Palace and I’d be massively surprised if they finished in the top four this season. Indeed I am half-tempted to have a small play on the draw here.

Betting: Draw at 5/2 (Paddy Power)


Chelsea v Norwich City
Chelsea put their Champions League campaign back on track by thrashing Malmo the other night, but that win came at a cost, with Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku suffering injuries. The Canaries have kept consecutive clean sheets to finally get a couple of points on the board but they are still bottom and the smart play at the Bridge with Lukaku almost certain to miss out could be backing the Blues to win a match that features less than three goals.

Betting: Chelsea and Under 2.5 at 21/10 (Paddy Power)


Crystal Palace v Newcastle United
So Steve Bruce has been put out of his misery by Newcastle just 13 days after the Saudi Arabia-backed £305m takeover. A decent fella, Bruce never felt he was fully accepted on Tyneside and now presumably can concentrate on writing crime thrillers again. Paulo Fonseca is the bookies’ favourite to take over the Mags, who are second bottom after a pretty disastrous start to the season. Palace have been decent at home so far and 10/11 about the home win looks just about right.

Betting: Crystal Palace to win win 10/11 (Paddy Power)


Everton v Watford
The Hornets have had 15 goes at trying to beat Everton at Goodison and never managed it so good luck if you are getting stuck into them at 9/2 this weekend. Liverpool made Claudio Ranieri’s Premier League return one to forget as they battered Watford 5-0 last week and they could take another pasting here. Richarlison could return for the Toffeemen this weekend and he’s a 9/2 shout to score first.

Betting: Richarlison to score first at 9/2 (Paddy Power)


Leeds United v Wolves
Am told six points from eight Premier League matches marks Leeds’ worst start to a league campaign since 1988/89. They’ve just not got going so far, and Wolves look a tempting proposition at 9/5. They’ve won on each of their last three trips to Elland Road as well. Stick a pony in me pocket/I’ll fetch the suitcase from the van…

Betting: Wolves to win at 9/5 (Paddy Power)


Southampton v Burnley
Southampton were really, really good against Leeds and should have won by a few more. They also did the double over Burnley last season so the home win at just under even money is sat up and practically begging to be backed. Git on.

Betting: Southampton to win at 19/20 (Paddy Power)


Brighton v Manchester City
Brighton are fourth after a cracking start but face the champions on Saturday evening. Pep Guardiola’s men should win but 4/11 looks quite short. It will be a test this on the south coast. Strong in possession, well-balanced without the ball, Brighton have looked the real deal so far. And for this reason I am all over the even money about both teams finding the net at the American Express Community Stadium.

Betting: Both teams to score at evens (Paddy Power)


Brentford v Leicester City
This could be close and the bookies agree with both teams priced at 13/8 in the 1X2 market. Patson Daka dropping a nine-minute hat-trick the other night in Moscow was pretty special. He’s a fantastic player and can help the Foxes to another big win on the road.

Betting: Leicester to win at 13/8 (Paddy Power)


West Ham v Tottenham
The Hammers are a tough nut to crack under David Moyes while Spurs are looking for a third straight Premier League win on Sunday. Harry Kane has now scored 88 goals in 128 away games in the Premier League. Bit of an iffy start to this season I’ll grant you, but would you honestly back against him finding the net at the London Stadium?

Betting: Kane to score anytime at 6/5 (Paddy Power)


Manchester United v Liverpool
The Red Devils produced a stunning second-half comeback to relieve the pressure on boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-2 victory against Atalanta on Wednesday night, but they face another acid test against Liverpool on Sunday. You have to go back to March 2018 for the last time Manchester United beat Liverpool in the Premier League.

Mohamed Salah has scored in nine consecutive games for Liverpool and there’s a case to be made for him being the best player in the world on current form. There’s a bigger case to be made for backing the away win at Old Trafford at 6/5. Manchester United never give up, but they look so brittle defensively and Liverpool can claim another win on the road.

Betting: Liverpool to win at 6/5 (Paddy Power)
