The EPL Weekend Coupon: September 16/17 article feature image

The big clashes in the Premier League take place on Sunday with a London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal the pick of this weekend’s EPL games.

Liverpool will be looking to bounce back at home after their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City last weekend. They take on Burnley, who have already upset Chelsea this season.

Tottenham Hotspur get the featured teatime slot, with Swansea City coming to Wembley to take on Spurs in their adopted new home.

And former strikers will look to score against their old clubs as Manchester United (with Romelu Lukaku) take on Everton (with Wayne Rooney) on Sunday.

Here’s the full list, together with the best available prices, sourced via Oddschecker.

Saturday September 16

Crystal Palace (2/1) Draw (23/10) Southampton (7/4)
Liverpool (2/7) Draw (11/2) Burnley (14/1)
West Bromwich Albion (11/8) Draw (23/10) West Ham United (12/5)
Huddersfield Town (13/5) Draw (61/25) Leicester City (5/4)
Newcastle United (13/10) Draw (23/10) Stoke City (13/5)
Watford (9/1) Draw (24/5) Manchester City (4/11)
Tottenham Hotspur (1/4) Draw (6/1) Swansea City (16/1)

Sunday September 17

Chelsea (4/5) Draw (3/1) Arsenal (7/2)
Manchester United (4/11) Draw (9/2) Everton (21/2)

Initial thoughts:

  • Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham and Manchester United make for a solid parlay selection
  • Since their opening day defeat to Burnley, Chelsea have hit form and should beat an inconsistent Arsenal at home
  • Romelu Lukaku to score against his old club is a 5/6 shot. Football has a habit of throwing up stories like these, and I suspect the big Belgian will haunt his old club this weekend
