Liverpool begin Matchday four as the only side in the Premier League with a perfect record. The Champions League winners face a difficult trip to Turf Moor on Saturday evening, but the Reds are a short price to maintain their 100 was impressed with the way new Irons’ striker Sebastian Haller took his goals at the Amex last weekend and you get the impression that Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be one of the division’s entertainers this season. Having shipped five at home to City in their opening home game I would be disappointed if they didn’t pick up all three points against a Canaries side who are likely to struggle for clean sheets this term.

Tip: West Ham to win and both teams to score


Burnley v Liverpool

Ashley Barnes has scored 13 league goals in 2019 and he continues to impress for Burnley. Liverpool look sure to face a stiff examination against the Clarets, but they have such quality in their ranks that I believe they will take maximum points back from east Lancashire.

After their excellent win against Arsenal at the weekend the Reds have won their last 12 league games and I don’t expect this admirable Burnley side to make it 13th time unlucky for Jurgen Klopp’s side who are taken to go into the first international break at the top of the table.

Tip: Liverpool to lead at halftime and fulltime 


Everton v Wolves

Everton have struggled to create in their three league games to date and six shots on target from opening fixtures against Palace, Watford and Villa speaks volumes. There must be every chance that Marco Silva will give starts to summer signings Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi against Wolves if they successfully come through their midweek League Cup tie at Lincoln.

Wolves are in Europa League action against Torino on Thursday and have drawn all three league games to date. I feel they will again share the spoils at Goodison.

Tip: Game to finish in a draw 


Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs had almost 80{2145621b26fc9aaf9f712205cef9de9b6b89ae8741f566ab7f58c50f0e39ac2a} of the possession against Newcastle on Sunday but created very little, although they look sure to have their chances against an Arsenal side who were no match for Liverpool at Anfield at the weekend when they were readily brushed aside.

The Gunners are now without a win in their last 23 away games against the “big six” sides and their defensive frailties have still not been addressed.

Unai Emery’s side are a different proposition at the Emirates, however, and I believe we will see an open, entertaining north London derby with nothing between the teams.

Tip: Game to finish in a scoring draw
