2019-20 EPL: Week 4 Preview & Betting Tips

August 27th 2019, 4:23pm, By: joshschon

Week 4 of the English Premier League kicks off on Saturday night with Southampton hosting Manchester United! We have a preview and betting tips for some of the key games of the week below.

EPL Week 4 Betting Tips

Chelsea vs Sheffield United (Sunday 12am AEST)

Frank Lampard's start as Chelsea manager has brought mixed results, to say the least; getting smashed by Manchester United, finishing even with Leicester and narrowly avoiding embarrassment to Norwich. However, with Sheffield visiting Stamford Bridge this weekend, expectations will be high.

Meanwhile the Blades have shown some promising signs since being promoted, managing a goal in each of their matches. Although they lost to Leicester City last week, they really took it up to the Foxes and in positive news record-signing Oliver McBurnie didn't take long to hit the back of the net, scoring almost immediately after coming off the bench.

There are still enough question marks over the Blues' defence to think that Sheffield United will breach it at some stage, given how impressive their front line has been. However, Chelsea's class should be enough to walk away with the three points.

Burnley vs Liverpool (Sunday 2:30am AEST)

Burnely's form has been pretty decent, a 3-0 win over Southampton, a 1-2 loss to Arsenal and an unlucky 1-1 draw to Wolves last weekend. They will be kicking themselves they dropped two points after conceding a late penalty.

Not surprisingly, Liverpool has come out this season with the bit between their teeth, eager to atone for last season's disappointment. What we've seen is some ultra attacking football that has netted them nine goals in three games, but they've also conceded one goal in every match so far.

The form line of both sides indicates we're going to get goals, and plenty of them. The two matches between these sides last campaign combined for 10 goals (wins to Liverpool 4-2 and 3-1) and you get the feeling there will be something in that ballpark once again.

Everton vs Wolverhampton (Sunday 11pm AEST)

Everton's season began in decent fashion with a draw away to Crystal Palace and a win at home to Watford. However, a 2-0 loss last week to the newly promoted Aston Villa last week was a poor performance, and everyone at the Merseyside club will be determined to bounce back.

Wolves have had a hectic month to say the least, having already played seven matches in August with Premier League mixed in with Europa League qualifying. They've managed to grab a point from each of their EPL matches but their form has been up and down – they were very good against Manchester United (1-1) but lucky to get a draw against Burnley (1-1).

Get the feeling Wolverhampton's draining fixture is starting to catch up with them, and they will have to play Italian side Torino on Friday before Sunday's match at Goodison Park. Look for the Toffees to get the early jump and be quite happy to sit on the lead.
