Lace-up for the second round of top-tier English football. Premier League teams take to the field once more as they line up against each other this weekend and battle it out for a win in front of their fans.
Enjoy a close look at some of the best Premier League football on offer this week with our Premier League Fixtures: Round Two betting options at LV BET.
PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES: ROUND TWO BETTING
Liverpool vs Burnley
Liverpool started the season off by picking up three points – and scoring as many goals – in an away victory at Norwich City. Klopp’s attacking talent led the line with clinical efficiency as Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah all found the back of the net last Saturday.
Burnley, on the other hand, were forced to endure their first defeat of the season at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. Despite the Clarets taking an early lead through James Tarkowski, Sean Dyche’s side were unable to hang on, conceding twice in just five minutes late in the second half.
Aston Villa vs Newcastle
Aston Villa and Newcastle will be looking to get points on the board this Saturday when the Magpies travel south to Villa Park.
Replacing a £100 million man is never easy. Even though Aston Villa have purchased the services of Emiliano Buendia, Ashley Young, Leon Bailey, Danny Ings and Axel Tuanzebe, things may still take a bit of time to click for Dean Smith’s side as they prepare to face a team they haven’t lost to in over four years.
Finally completing their signing of Joe Willock from Arsenal, Newcastle will be eager to provide the Toon Army with more good news this weekend. Although they were unable to get anything from their first-round fixture against West Ham, Newcastle’s attacking intent was a welcome show, especially to the fans within the stadium who saw fit to applaud their team at halftime.
Manchester City vs Norwich City
A loss to Tottenham (1-0) on the season’s opening day is not how Pep Guardiola would have imagined Manchester City starting their title defence. The champions will get the opportunity to put things right this Saturday when Norwich City pay them a visit at the Etihad Stadium.
Liverpool proved a team too tough for Daniel Farke and his side last weekend. Norwich walked away from the Carrow Road Stadium without any points and a challenging upcoming fixture away to the champions.
However, it’s not all bad news. While the home side are the clear favourites this Saturday, the Canaries have surprised the football world in the past – running out as 3-2 winners against Manchester City the last time they played.
Southampton vs Manchester United
Despite Stuart Armstrong handing them the lead, Everton were able to tear Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side apart – kicking them out of Goodison Park without a single point. The Saints now prepare for their first home game of the season against a revved-up Manchester United side that is more than capable of causing them pain.
This Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be pressing his team to double their wins – and points – when they face Southampton at Saint Mary’s Stadium. A 5-1 victory against the old enemy in front of a packed Old Trafford will have United fans – and players – buzzing with anticipation when they head out for their first away game of the season.
Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur
An emotional return to the Molineux Stadium for Nunu Espirito Santo is on the cards this Sunday when the Portuguese football manager returns to his old stomping ground with his new Tottenham squad.
Things couldn’t have tasted any sweeter for Spurs fans last Sunday when their side beat the visiting champions 1-0 at the Tottenham Stadium. An early show of intent may have the pundits and neutrals fancying the London club’s chances of making it into the top four; however, if they do so with or without their talisman, Harry Kane, still remains to be seen.
On the other hand, Bruno Lage will be hoping his Wolves come with a bit more bite this Sunday. A 1-0 loss to Leicester City at King Power Stadium – while not the most devastating result on the opening day – will do no favours for Wolverhampton’s fight into the top half of the Premier League table. A home win this weekend against one of the “big six” could work wonders for Wolves and help settle them in for a long season ahead.
West Ham vs Leicester City
West Ham and Leicester City line up this Monday for a clash that will surely have neutral fans at the edge of their seats.
With both teams battling it out for top Premier League spots, a win at the London Stadium could prove a deciding factor when handing out positions at the end of the season. Each side promises to deliver the goods with some of the best English talents in the country, including the likes of James Maddison, Jamie Vardy, Declan Rice and Mark Noble.
