Saturday Premier League Double
West Ham and Watford should both fancy their chances of at least scoring against their high-flying visitors today.
The Premier League’s new ‘Big 3’ showed they could all win on the road in midweek, and the trick may be to find interesting ways to keep backing them. A double on Chelsea and Man City winning on Saturday, but with their opponents finding the net, is a 10.2/1 double with BetFair.
West Ham v Chelsea:
The Hammers are still in the box seat in terms of best of the rest, and they have scored in all 7 of their home Premier League games so far this season. They beat Liverpool 3-2 in early November, but there have been 3 winless matches since in the top flight. I expect Tuchel to drive an improvement in Chelsea from midweek, and claim three more vital points.
Watford v Man City:
I’ve had to make an urgent reassessment of Watford, at least as an attacking force. Ranieri has made the Hornets a real threat going forward with Dennis and King troubling the top scorer markets unexpectedly. After matching Chelsea in all but scoreline on Wednesday, the fear factor should be gone; with 7 goals scored in their last three, City will do well to claim a clean sheet.
