Everton will be aiming to maintain their good start to the season when they host West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday.

Everton can continue their fine start to the 2020-21 campaign when they host West Brom on Saturday, while their are a further three games scheduled to take place in the Premier League.

Saturday’s action gets underway at 12:30 when Everton host West Brom, with newly promoted pair Leeds and Fulham set to clash at Elland Road at 15:00.

Manchester United make their first competitive outing of the season at home to Crystal Palace at 17:30 and Arsenal host West Ham in the 20:00 kick off.

Everton to Bag All Three Points

Everton fans have been optimistic heading into the last few campaigns but this time around it feels like they have good reason to get excited.

The arrivals of James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Allan have taken Everton’s midfield to the next level, as was demonstrated when they ran the show to earn a deserved 1-0 win at Tottenham last weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti has made clear his desire secure European football at the end of the term. Therefore, seeing off newly-promoted teams on home soil is a must.

West Brom aren’t expected to be the whipping boys of the division, despite just returning to the top-flight, but a 3-0 loss at home to Leicester on Sunday suggests Slaven Bilic still has much work to do.

The Toffees enter Saturday’s clash as the clear 10/19 favourites in the match result market.

Everton are yet to concede in two competitive outings this term so backing them to win to nil, which is available at 29/20, could be the way to go when looking to squeeze more value out of this game.

Bielsa’s Boys to Get on the Board

Leeds were somewhat unlucky to leave Anfield without any points after losing their season-opener against Liverpool 4-3.

Their high-intensity approach caused problems for the defending champions and will likely see them overrun some teams in the Premier League this season.

Saturday’s home meeting with Fulham offers the perfect opportunity for Leeds to get their first points on the board.

They finished 12 points clear of the Cottagers as they won the Championship title last season and eased to a 3-0 victory when they met at Elland Road in June.

Fulham, like Leeds, were handed a tough start back in the top flight when they took on Arsenal but they didn’t manage to show the same kind of fight as they went down with a whimper 3-0.

Again, there isn’t a great deal of value in the home win with Leeds priced at 5/8, so it’s worth dipping in to other markets and backing goals appears to be the best option.

Both of last season’s meetings between Leeds and Fulham saw over 2.5 goals land and that outcome is priced at 10/11 ahead of this weekend’s engagement.

Red Devils Raring to Go

Manchester United were given an extra week off to prepare for 2020-21 due to their involvement in the latter stages of the 2019-20 Europa League.

Saturday’s 17:30 clash with Crystal Palace will be their first appearance of the season and all the signs point to a comfortable United triumph.

Palace beat Southampton 1-0 at home last Saturday. However, a trip to Old Trafford sees them come up against a much stronger outfit.

United have won each of their last five opening-day fixtures and it’s difficult to see Palace halting that sequence.

They ran out 4-0 winners against Chelsea on the opening day in 2019-20 and with Palace expected to be struggling with defensive issues once again, it’s worth backing a United win with over 2.5 goals at 10/11.

Auba to Celebrate New Deal

Arsenal’s star forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penned a new contract earlier this week and he looks a solid bet to celebrate that deal with a goal.

The Gabon ace, who narrowly missed out on the Premier League’s golden boot last season, opened his account against Fulham last weekend.

He boasts an incredible goalscoring record with the Gunners, netting 55 in 86 league outings, and he can be backed at 5/2 to score first when they host West Ham at 20:00.

Aubameyang opened the scoring on nine occasions in 2019-20 and it’s hard to imagine him not taking advantage of West Ham’s leaky defence.
