Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
Suarez returned last weekend away to Sunderland, he scored twice set up a third and overall looked sharp all bit against the worst team in the Premier League. But tomorrow the Luis Suarez party will arrive at Anfield and I think the Urugayian will be looking to make a mark again and has the perfect opportunity against another team in the bottom three, Crystal Palace. Ian Holloway will be feeling the pressure as Palace have now lost four in five and a trip to an inform Liverpool will not be very appealing game. I'm taking a different approach here looking for value. Liverpooll are 8/13 to lead at half time, thus far in the season Liverpool have been the best team in the league at half time leading in 5 of their 6 games. Take the reds to jump out to an early start here and lead at half tim.
Pick : Liverpool to lead at half time
Fulham vs Stoke City
Another manager under pressure is Fulham boss Martin Jol as Fulham have had a poor start to the Premier League season. Craven Cottage used to be something of a fortress for Fulham but the Cottagers have lost two of three at home this season and have conceded in each of their last eight home games. Stoke City have proven to be a tough nut to crack and have won three of their last five away games, manager Mark Hughes (former Fulham boss) will be looking forward to going back to Craven Cottage and he will arrive with the better team tomorrow. But that said Fulham will be looking to back up theit boss tomorrow and with individuals like Berbatov anything could be possible. I like the look of both teams to score here, which has happened in the last eight Fulham games at Craven Cottage add in that Stoke have scored in nine of their last eleven away games and it looks like we have a good mix.
Pick: Both teams to score
Hull City vs Aston Villa
Hull manager Steve Bruce was talking about the loss of Robbie Brady in his press conference on Friday and its obvious the young irish man is going to be missed at Hull as he has 4 goals already this season and has created so much more. Hull though have been playing really well , have won three in a row and have been defensively very sound. Aston Villa had a crazy win over Manchester City last weekend but they really have been an up and down team, they tend to win one then lose one and if that trend continues then tomorrow should be a loss! But overall tomorrow I think we see a low scoring affair, the creativity of Brady is vital for Hull and he will be missed. Christian Benteke, Villa's best player and top striker is also missing for the game. I think we see a low soring game and one which Hull might just sneak.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals
