Premier League action returns after the seemingly interminable fortnight of international football.

We've got four bets for this weekends action.

All prices via William Hill's betting odds.

Man City vs Spurs

Second-placed Man City take on sixth-placed Spurs in the early Premier League game on Saturday.

City won this fixture 6-0 last season with the game at White Hart Lane being similarly one-sided, a 5-1 victory for the Manchester side. They have also won their last four games against Spurs in all competitions.

Fernandinho is a doubt for Man City with Samir Nasri definitely out. Hugo Lloris and Nacer Chadli are both doubts for Spurs as they both missed international games during the week.

Recommended best: Man City (-1) @ 23/20

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea

Table-toppers Chelsea are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League this season and they travel across London to fifteenth-placed Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The only major injury doubt for Chelsea going into the game is Andre Schurrle who missed Germany's drawn with Ireland due to the 'flu.


Chelsea did lose this fixture last season but look a much more threatening side going forward this season, especially with the addition of the Premier League's top scorer Diego Costa.


Recommended bet: Chelsea (-1) 23/20

Newcastle vs Leicester

Newcastle are one of just two sides in the Premier League without a victory after seven games this season, the other is Burnley. Leicester on the other hand, sit in twelfth and look like one of the strongest promoted sides in years.

Newcastle will be with Siem de Jong and David Santon, Daryl Janmaat is a doubt. Esteban Cambiasso could be missing for Leicester.


Leicester are a large looking 11/5 to win the game, and are undoubtedly a better side than Newcastle at the moment. Nobody is backing the home side at 6/5. If you're not quite confident enough in Leicester to get their second away win of the season then you can take them with the safety net of the 'draw no bet' option.

Recommended bet: Leicester (draw no bet) @ 11/8

West Brom vs Man Utd

Man Utd travel to West Brom for the 8pm kick-off on Monday evening. After a shaky start to the season, Utd have started to improve winning their last two, both at home though.


Louis Van Gaal's side are without a win in their last five away Premier League games. They've drawn away to Sunderland and Burnley this season and lost to Leicester away from Old Trafford. Utd won this fixture 3-0 last season but then West Brom won 2-1 at Old Trafford. After going their opening four games without a win, West Brom have won two of their last three, showing definite signs of improvement.

The Manchester side will still be without Wayne Rooney as he is serving a three-game suspension at the moment. Also out are Jonny Evans, Ashley Young and Michael Carrick. Chris Brunt is a doubt for the home side.

Recommended bet: West Brom or draw @ 21/20
