Seagulls to reignite over 3.5 goals streak against the Toffees
Eight of Brighton’s 10 Premier League outings have rewarded over 3.5 goals backers this season so the chance to back another occurrence at 7/5 must be worth a second look.
On the face it Everton, averaging a goal per game in the division this term, aren’t the most obliging of dance partners when it comes to this particular wager.
However, the last three clashes between these two sides have each seen at least five goals scored and with Brighton better rested after a week with no Europa League duties, this fixture can ignite again.
At least one side to blank in clash of leading clean-sheet keepers
‘Both teams to score – No’ must be a live runner in this clash between two of the EPL’s leading clean sheet collectors. Arsenal lead the division with five shutouts in 10 games, while Newcastle (four) have the joint-second highest tally.
The Gunners’ EPL clean-sheet percentage is even higher with David Raya between the sticks – Raya has avoided concession in four of his six starts in the competition this term.
Both Newcastle’s meetings with Arsenal last season saw at least one side draw a blank, with the sides playing out a goalless draw at the Emirates and the Gunners prevailing 2-0 in the return fixture.
Poch’s pockets to be picked on return to old stomping ground
Tottenham may have thwarted our win-to-nil dreams with a 94th minute concession last weekend against Palace, but the Lilywhites still recorded an eighth win in 10 EPL games. That must make them worth backing at 21/10 against an inconsistent Chelsea side.
Spurs have won all four of their home games for Ange Postecoglou, including the notable scalps of Liverpool and Manchester United. Chelsea, meanwhile, continue to struggle for momentum under former Tottenham dugout hero Mauricio Pochettino.
For all the Blues shipped two late goals in their 2-2 draw with Arsenal two games back, the performance suggested that things were beginning to fall into place. However, that was immeditaely followed by a 0-2 home reverse to an Ivan-Toney-less Brentford.
Tottenham are finding genuine consistency under Postecoglou and more of the same should be enough to see them past the Blues on this occasion.
