The teams in the English Premier League should be starting to settle down and find some form but as it is the last week of the transfer window the coaches and management are still frantically discussing ways to improve their side. Continue reading for the EPL Week 4 betting tips and preview.

Newcastle United vs Arsenal (Saturday 9.45pm AEST)
This weekend kicks off with the Gunners travelling to Newcastle with a relatively poor start to their season. They were hoping to be title contenders and with only four points out of a possible nine to start their season they will be more than disappointed. They are still in search for another striker up front after missing out on Karim Benzema and they have been held scoreless in two of their matches.
Newcastle United were dominated in their match at Old Trafford last week but they were able to hold a clean sheet and come away with a draw but they will be lucky if they can pull off the same feat two weeks in a row if they give up as many chances as they did. Arsenal will be creative as always in attack and if they are able to get one to hit the back of the net it should be enough.
Stoke City vs West Bromwich Albion (Sunday 12am AEST)
The Potters looked as if they would get their first victory of the season last weekend when they were leading 1-0 against Norwich City but a late equaliser would ruin their parade. They were the better side and were looking dangerous throughout the entire match. They will look to continue that form into this weekend as they take on the Baggies that nearly upset the defending champions last weekend. After being held scoreless in their opening two matches, they put two past Chelsea but left the match empty handed and are currently stranded on the bottom of the ladder. They will remain their this weekend as they won’t be able to nullify Stoke as they will continue to grow throughout the season and should live up to their potential.
Liverpool vs West Ham (Sunday 12am AEST)
After a strong start to the season with a victory over Arsenal, the Hammers have suffered back-to-back losses against sides they were expected to beat. They now travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool who have had a successful start to the season on paper with two wins and a draw but they have not looked dangerous at all. Liverpool have scored only two goals in three games, one was a solo effort and the other should have been disallowed. The Hammers could easily pinch a win here but I expect the match to end in a lacklustre 1-1 draw.
Southampton vs Norwich City (Sunday 12am AEST)
Expectations were again high for Southampton this year after two brilliant seasons, however it looks as if the toll of selling over nine quality players over that period is starting to catch up with the club. They are coming up against the Budgies that haven’t shown they have much to offer this season and this match could go either way. However, I expect their inefficiencies in front of goal to be the real winner in this match as chances will go begging to win the match for both sides and we will see a draw in this match.
Swansea City vs Manchester United (Monday 1am AEST)
Despite creating multiple chances and holding the majority of the possession last weekend, the Red Devils failed to crack Newcastle’s defence as they were held to a disappointing scoreless draw. However, they were able to dust off the cobwebs this week as they put four past Club Brugge in the UEFA Champions League play off match. The game also saw Wayne Rooney break his 10-game goalless drought as he scored a hat trick in his side’s victory.
Swansea have had another positive start to the season with a draw against Chlesea on opening day, a victory against Newcastle but they were held to a draw against Sunderland last week in a match they will wish they had of won. They will be hard to beat at home but if Manchester can control the possession they should find the back of the net as the side begins to gel.
