Title contenders to continue unbeaten starts


Two of the Premier League’s title contenders play on Sunday and it is Manchester City who are first up, as they look to set the tone against Southampton.

City to win to zero @ 4/5

The Citizens have appeared imperious in recent weeks and Pep Guardiola’s side will be fresh having been able to rotate for Thursday’s EFL Cup win over Fulham.

With six clean sheets in a row, they look unlikely to be troubled by a Saints side who have failed to score in their last five Premier League outings.

Aguero to score two or more @ 11/10

In contrast, Manchester City have netted at least two goals in their last six at home and Sergio Aguero has been key to that run.

The Argentine has scored nine times this season, with five of those coming at the Etihad.

Aguero will be licking his lips at the prospect of taking on a shaky Saints rearguard, with the visitors having conceded three times against both Liverpool and Chelsea.

Chelsea to win and both to score @ 29/20

It is then to Stamford Bridge where Chelsea welcome Crystal Palace in the later game.

The Blues are unbeaten this season and after a tumultuous summer, Maurizio Sarri appears to be settling into English football very well.

Eden Hazard’s back injury has been his main bugbear and Sarri has suggested the Belgian could be set for a bench role on Sunday, with him currently not deemed fit enough to last 90 minutes.

Zaha to score at Anytime @ 4/1

Chelsea have scored at least twice in eight of their 10 league games to date and face a Palace side who have failed to win any of their last five games in all competitions.

However, they do have a decent record against the Blues, winning at the Bridge in both 2015 and 2017, while they also came out on top when the pair met last season at Selhurst Park.

Wilfried Zaha scored the winner on that occasion and with the Eagles expected to set up to counter-attack, he is sure to get chances against a defence who have kept just one clean sheet at home in the league this season.
