|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Tottenham||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Liverpool failed to score in just one away league match last season
Expert Verdict: Liverpool humiliated Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season and swept them aside at home, but a repeat of those easy victories looks unlikely. They should find it harder to break down Spurs this time and will probably approach many of their away games in less gung-ho fashion.
Recommendation: Liverpool to win 1-0
REFEREE: Phil Dowd STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Leicester||Recent Form|
Key Stat: The Foxes’ home games averaged 2.96 goals per match in the Championship last term
Expert Verdict: Arsenal’s efforts in Wednesday night’s crucial Champions League playoff could hinder them at this stage of the season, when fitness levels are below their peak. Leicester look unlikely to spring an upset but it’s worth backing them, as well as the visitors, to get on the scoresheet.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Anthony Taylor STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at PSV Eindhoven||Recent Form|
Key Stat: PSV have failed to score in two of their last 34 home league games
Expert Verdict: Vitesse won 6-2 in Eindhoven last season but have claimed just one point from their opening three matches. PSV have made a great start with three wins and Memphis Depay is a striker in great form, having notched five times already. He can set them on their way to another success with the first goal.
Recommendation: M Depay first goalscorer
REFEREE: Kevin Blom STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Dundee||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Dundee’s last win over Celtic came over 13 years ago
Expert Verdict: It’s been an eventful opening to Ronny Deila’s reign at Celtic but his men should ease to victory over newly promoted Dundee. Deila paid the price for resting his first XI at Inverness as he focused on Celtic’s vital Champions League playoff tie, losing 1-0, but the Bhoys will be back to full strength.
Recommendation: Celtic to win 2-0
REFEREE: Craig Thomson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Bordeaux||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Six of Bordeaux's seven league goals this season have come in the second half
Expert Verdict: Bordeaux showed signs of improvement at the end of last season – their only defeat in their last ten games came at third-placed Lille – and they are the early pace-setters this term. They scored four second-half goals to beat Monaco in their last home game and should have few problems against inconsistent Bastia.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at FC Groningen||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Seven of Groningen's last nine league matches have featured more than two goals
Expert Verdict: Ajax will be eager to bounce back from their 3-1 loss to PSV on Sunday and while Groningen have had a decent start themselves and could provide a tough test, the Amsterdam outfit should win through. Ajax created most of the chances in the PSV game so there's a decent chance the defeat was just a blip.
