- Manchester City vs Southampton – BTTS – No at 4/5

- Newcastle United vs Brentford – BTTS – Yes at 8/11
- Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur – BTTS – Yes at 4/6
City far too strong for Saints
Starting with the in-form reigning champions, Manchester City will take some stopping to be denied all three points against Southampton on Saturday.
The Citizens are in free-scoring form at present, having scored 20 goals in their last five games in all competitions.
With three clean sheets in their last two outings, City have also looked strong at the back and will be tough for Southampton to break down.
Saints have been struggling for goals of late, with just one in their last three outings. Going ‘No’ on BTTS is the way to go in this one.
Wolves need to attack the Blues
Looking ahead to Chelsea’s showdown with Wolves and BTTS looks to be a good option at Stamford Bridge.
Granted Wolves have struggled for goals this term, after finding the back of the net just four times in their first eight games.
However, the players will be eager to impress whichever manager takes over at the club following the sacking of Bruno Lage.
What also gives weight to this selection is the fact that BTTS would have landed in all of Chelsea’s last four Premier League games.
Goals almost guaranteed with Bees
Thomas Frank’s Brentford tend to play high-scoring games away from the Gtech Community Stadium and goals might well be on the cards this weekend at Newcastle United.
Both teams have found the net in nine of Brentford’s last 11 Premier League games away from home and that trend could continue this weekend.
In six of Newcastle’s last seven games in all competitions BTTS has landed. This clash at St James’ Park sees two attacking teams going head-to-head and goals look set to be high supply.
These sides scored eight goals between them in their two Premier League meetings last term. The last meeting at St James’ Park ended up in what was a thrilling 3-3 draw and a similar result could happen this weekend in the North-East.
Spurs far from secure in defence
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte probably won’t like this following stat, but BTTS have scored in all of Spurs’ last four Premier League games.
The former Inter Milan and Chelsea boss would like to have his side a lot tighter at the back, but they continue to leak goals.
As Brighton showed in a 3-3 draw against Liverpool, they are more than capable of causing the big teams problems.
While Spurs might have enough to win this encounter on the South Coast, expect Brighton to also get on the scoresheet.
