The Premier League weekend continues with two matches in the top flight on Sunday as another Super Sunday takes place across the country. Most of the title protagonists featured on Saturday so the slightly lesser lights get the chance to shine on Sunday.
Of the four sides in action it is fair to say that probably none of them have made the start to the campaigns that they would have liked so a win here will be important. They have had the international break to assess their positions and go again.
Wolves vs Burnley
The opening match of the day comes from Molineux as the Championship winners from last season Wolves host the surprise package of the previous campaign in Burnley who will look to get their fortunes going after mixing the Premier League with the Europa League in the first part of the season.
There were high hopes for Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the season but they are yet to deliver on the potential most thought they had. Whether that is down to the jump up a division or the new personnel only they will know. They are still going better than Burnley who drew on the opening day but haven’t picked up a point since.
Wolves look incredibly short to me but they have shown in their last couple of matches that they can be hard to break down which is a concern for me. If Burnley don’t score then we would need a 0-0 to avoid a half loss on the Asian lines. Burnley +0.75 is probably the way to go but there’s something that doesn’t make me comfortable about it. With that in mind I’ll leave it.
Everton vs West Ham
The second match of the afternoon sees an Everton side who have frustratingly stuttered in the last couple of matches taking on a West Ham team who have been so poor they’ve not had the chance to contemplate stuttering thus far.
Everton have drawn their last two matches surrendering a two goal lead at Bournemouth and then battling against Huddersfield for a point while West Ham have played four and lost the lot and only really last time out have they looked like getting anything. Their last trip to Merseyside saw them walloped by Liverpool 4-0 on the opening day of the season and they will not want a repeat of that.
I’m expecting to see some goals here. Everton should be able to get at this West Ham defence but there are vulnerabilities in the Toffees back line especially defending set pieces and Manuel Pellegrini has had a fortnight to work on set plays for his team. The likes of Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic can find the net for the Hammers anyway. West Ham have shipped seven on the road in two away games this season. That makes me think over 2.5 goals is the way to play this one.
