Premier League Tips – 6th & 7th August

Author: Published: August 4, 2022

Premier League TipsWelcome back to the start of the football season once again and that means I’m back with my tips for the games taking place in the Premier League, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup, plus of course there’s the small matter of the World Cup coming up from November, which we will have some extra special tips sorted out for you.

However, after last week’s Community Shield and Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City, we are now back to the start of the Premier League and what a start it promises to be with some intriguing games between teams.

This includes Frank Lampard’s Everton hosting his former club Chelsea, Manchester City making the trip to London to face West Ham while Liverpool are also in London taking on newly-promoted Fulham.

We’ve also got plenty of new face in the Premier League this season to look forward to including Erling Haaland (Man City), Darwin Nunez (Liverpool), Ivan Perisic (Tottenham), Kalidou Koulibaly (Chelsea), Lisandro Martinez (Manchester United) and Diego Carlos (Aston Villa).

We’ve also seen some relatively rare big money moves between Premier League sides with Kalvin Phillips (Leeds to Man City), Raheem Sterling (Man City to Chelsea), Christian Eriksen (Brentford to Man Utd) and Richarlison (Everton to Tottenham) being amongst the most eye-catching deals.

I’d say last season had it moments for me tips wise, but I want a greater degree of consistency and profitability this season and I think the best approach to that is to mix up more cautious, high probability bets, with some of the longer odds bets which may not hit as often, but when they do can give a hefty return.

It’s going to be a busy season ahead, so let’s get things started with this set of first tips for the 2022/23 Premier League campaign.

Football Betting Tips: Saturday 6th August

Fulham VS Liverpool
06/08/2022 12:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Fulham are unbeaten in their last 2 against Liverpool (drawing one, winning one)
However, their last home victory over Liverpool was a 1-0 win back in December 2011.
From 2012 to 2019, Liverpool won all 6 games between the two scoring 19 goals to 4.
They have played 71 times, Liverpool winning 41 games, Fulham 13 with 17 draws.

Analysis

Liverpool produced a solid display last week in the Community Shield to defeat Manchester City 3-1 and set themselves up nicely for the start of the season away to newly promoted Fulham. A team who the Reds have not managed to beat in their last two attempts.

Marco Silva’s team scored lots of goals last season and they’ll need to find the net regularly this season if they are to avoid the drop this time around and as starts to the season go, it doesn’t get much tougher than facing the Reds.

Darwin Nunez made a scoring debut for Liverpool last week and he looks like being a very dangerous threat for the Reds in attack with Mo Salah and Luis Diaz also providing plenty of support from wider areas and of course, solid back up options in the shape of Jota and Firmino, means the Reds won’t have too many problems scoring goals.

Mitrovic is the key for Fulham’s success after 43 goals last season. If he can manage half that this time around Fulham will be fine, but I can’t quite see them getting the start that they would like here. They may score a goal, but I am backing Liverpool to get the job done and pick up three points here.

Leeds United VS Wolverhampton Wanderers
06/08/2022 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Last season the teams drew 1-1 in this fixture, Leeds winning 3-2 at Molineux.
Prior to those results, Wolves had won all the last five between the two from April 2017.
Leeds last home win over Wolves came back in April 2016 (2-1).
The teams have met 101 times, Leeds winning 43, Wolves 35 with 23 draws.

Analysis

Leeds struggled last season, only securing their place in the top flight very late into the campaign, while Wolves enjoyed another solid season, floating between mid-table and the top eight, but without really ever challenging the teams chasing places in European competition.

It’s fair to say that both these teams will want to improve on those performances this season and I think Leeds have made some intriguing moves. Losing Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips is a big blow but they have spent plenty of money replacing them, and the likes of Brendon Aaronson and Tyler Adams should be very good signings.

Wolves haven’t really made many signings this off season and I think that may be a mistake, especially with the teams around them and below them making some changes. Defensively they will be solid but a trip to Leeds on the opening day of the season is never easy.

I can’t see too many goals being scored here and I almost went for a 0-0 draw here, but I have a sneaky feeling that Leeds will know they need to get off to a much better start this season than they did last and as a result, I am backing them to snatch a goal here and claim an opening day victory.

Prediction

Leeds United to win - £10 returns £23.50

Everton VS Chelsea
06/08/2022 5:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Everton have won four of the last seven between the teams, losing 2 drawing once.
The Toffees took four points off Chelsea last season (1-0 home win, 1-1 away draw).
Frank Lampard is an ex-Chelsea player and manager, now managing Everton.
In 188 games, Everton have won 59, Chelsea 74 with 55 games drawn.

Analysis

For me, Everton needed to make some major changes to their team this last few months in order to avoid being embroiled in a dogfight against the drop once again this season, but I am not sure that they have managed to achieve that with the signings that they have made.

With Richarlison gone, the Toffees needed a striking reinforcement but brought in Dwight McNeil and James Tarkowski, both from Burnley and neither of whom fill the void left by the Brazilian. With no other signings of note, I fear that Everton are going to be struggling again this season.

Chelsea have been busier in the market, with players leaving the club as well as coming in but I feel they are at least making changes and I think that they are going to be the team most punters fancy here to land the win, even if their pre-season performances have been well below the standard Chelsea fans would have hoped for.

Raheem Sterling should proved to be a very good signing for Chelsea and I think he will play a key role here and I expect the Londoners to take the lead in this game in the first half and then hold onto that throughout the game, perhaps adding to it to claim a solid opening day win.

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 7th August

West Ham VS Man City
07/08/2022 4:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Excluding penalties, Man City have not lost to West Ham in their last 16 games.
Last season City won 2-1 at home, but were held 2-2 on the road in London.
Since April 2006, City have lost just 3 times to West Ham in the EPL in 30 games.
The teams have met 117 times, City winning 60, West Ham 38 with 19 draws.

Analysis

Last weekend’s Community Shield defeat to Liverpool was not too surprising as City have started the season slowly the last couple of seasons and that may give West Ham fans hope that they could spring an upset over the Champions on Sunday.

However, I think that defeat to Liverpool will serve as a wake up call to City here and I think that they will be well aware that this game is the first one that really matters in terms of their defence of the Premier League title and as such, I expect a much better performance from Pep Guardiola’s team here.

West Ham have made some interesting signings this off-season and it is going to be interesting to see how they pan out. However, it is a big ask to come into the team against the defending Champions and turn them over, even at home, especially when your record against City is as poor as West Ham’s is.

As such, I think the Hammers will score a goal, but I am expecting to see City produce a much better performance this weekend against West Ham than they did against Liverpool and I’m going to back them to win 3-1 here in the correct score market.
