|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Aston Villa||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Aston Villa lost 12 of their 22 home games last season
Expert Verdict: Newcastle look well equipped to come away with three points having picked up seven wins on their travels last season to finish 11 points ahead of the Villans, who were poor at home in 2013-14. The Magpies’ superior attacking threat should prove the difference.
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Everton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Everton kept four clean sheets in their six home games against the top seven last season
Expert Verdict: Bookmakers may have been caught up in the Emirates feel-good factor after the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, as Arsenal look too big to win at Goodison Park. That makes backing an Everton victory attractive despite the long-term injury to Ross Barkley. Last season the Toffees only lost two games against the top seven on their own turf.
REFEREE: Kevin Friend STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Ipswich||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Ipswich have lost just one of their last 11 home matches
Expert Verdict: Norwich have bounced back from an opening defeat at Wolves (1-0) with back-to-back home league wins but could be brought down to earth with a loss in the East Anglian derby. Portman Road has become a fortress in recent times and Ipswich should feel confident after an injury-time equaliser sealed a 2-2 draw at Birmingham on Tuesday.
REFEREE: Keith Stroud STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Inverness CT||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Inverness have kept clean sheets in all of their last four matches
Expert Verdict: Inverness are sampling life at the top of the SPL after picking up seven points from their first three games and may extend their unbeaten sequence with a draw at home to Celtic. Next Tuesday's Champions League clash at home to Maribor will take priority for the Bhoys, who are likely to field several fringe players.
REFEREE: Bobby Madden STADIUM: Caledonian Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Southampton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Brom lost ten of 19 league away games last term
Expert Verdict: Ronald Koeman seems to restored some stability on his arrival on the south coast and the hosts put in a largely impressive display at Anfield last Sunday. It’s worth remembering how resilient Saints were at St Mary’s last season, losing just five times. Alan Irvine lacks experience at this level and may need time to establish himself.
REFEREE: Roger East STADIUM: St Mary's Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at C Palace||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Palace’s last four wins against West Ham were all 1-0
Expert Verdict: Palace beat West Ham 1-0 home and away last season and it’s worth backing that scoreline again. Sam Allardyce is under pressure to make his team more entertaining but there was little evidence of it against Tottenham and this match could prove attritional. Avoiding defeat is the priority but Palace haven’t lost in six against the Irons, so should aim higher.
Recommendation: Crystal Palace to win 1-0
REFEREE: Mark Clattenburg STADIUM:
