Welcome to Premier League Tips, which takes a look at several selected matches in the English top flight, from the upcoming weekend fixtures. Offering a preview and tip for each game.
Before the International break, just one of the three selections returned, so without further ado, here are this week’s selected bets,
Liverpool v Manchester United (12:30pm Saturday)
Two of the biggest rivals, go head to head once again at Anfield on Saturday, as Liverpool host Manchester United, with the home side in need of a positive result.
Liverpool are out of form, having picked up one victory in the last seven games played, while Sadio Mane’s injury only adds to Jurgen Klopp’s problems. Man United have been majestic so far this season, having only lost in the Euro Super Cup to Real Madrid. However injuries to both Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini have left a big hole in midfield.
With the injuries that United have in midfield, I expect a Jose Mourinho master class of counter attacking football, with Lukaku playing a lone role. Liverpool should be able to overrun midfield but must protect the fragile backline too. All in all, a fascinating game awaits, with a share of the spoils likely.

Crystal Palace v Chelsea (3:00pm Saturday)
In this London derby, Crystal Palace will be hoping for something positive from a match against Chelsea at Selhurst Park, after the worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.
Crystal Palace have played seven, lost seven and scored no goals, with Roy Hodgson’s replacing of Frank De Boer not making things any better, with nine goals conceded in the last two matches. Chelsea by contrast have been in good form, although the 0-1 loss to Man City has dented confidence a little and an injury to Alvaro Morata does leave them short upfront.
Chelsea should win the game, barring an overly cautious Antonio Conte changing the side too much with Roma in mind next week, but I can see the Eagles finally breaking their scoring duck.

Tottenham Hotspur v AFC Bournemouth (3:00pm Saturday)
A Harry Kane inspired Tottenham, take on a struggling Bournemouth side at Wembley on Saturday, with the Cherries hoping the Wembley hoodoo continues for Spurs.
Tottenham are unbeaten in the last eight games played, with Kane netting seven in his last three games alone for the club, as the side start to hit the heights of last season’s form. Bournemouth picked up back to back wins over Brighton to give themselves a timely boost but a defeat to Everton and point against Leicester shows there is a long way to go for Eddie Howe’s side.
Spurs have won three of the four league meetings since Bournemouth were promoted, with a draw at the Vitality Stadium last season. However the Cherries have conceded twelve goals in that time and another strong performance from Pochettino’s side is expected, although with one eye on the European trip to Madrid, it may be closer than expected.
