Arsenal are the team to catch in the Premier League, with three wins from three under Mikel Arteta – the only side with a 100% record. Manchester City and Tottenham remain in hot pursuit, whilst the likes of Leeds United and Brighton also find themselves in the mix too. West Ham United are as yet the only side yet to pick up a point this season, whilst Merseyside rivals Everton and Liverpool are both awaiting their first wins of the campaign.
Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the Premier League 2022/23 season:
Premier League Week 4 Predictions
Southampton vs Manchester United – St Mary’s Stadium
Manchester United ($1.83)
Manchester United will be looking to build on their excellent win over Liverpool as they travel to Southampton. The Saints have won one, drawn one and lost one of their opening three games this season and they look well equipped to deal with the battle ahead of them in the Premier League this season. Manchester United meanwhile recovered from the doom and gloom of the opening two games to beat Liverpool on Monday night and they will be hoping to start climbing the table ASAP. This should be a decent game, which Manchester United should just edge.
Betting tip: Manchester United to win the match ($1.83)
Manchester United to win 2-1
Brentford vs Everton – Brentford Community Stadium
Brentford will be hoping to compile yet more misery on Everton in West London. The Bees have 4 points from their opening three games played and they look to be setting themselves up as an established Premier League side once again this term. Everton meanwhile picked up their first point of the campaign against Nottingham Forest last weekend and they will be eager to build on that here. This should be a decent game, with the draw the most plausible result.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.6)
Brighton vs Leeds United – AMEX Stadium
Leeds United ($4.4)
Two sides flying high at the top of the table put their unbeaten records on the line as Brighton host Leeds United at the AMEX Stadium. The Seagulls have been in excellent nick throughout 2022 and Graham Potter is doing a stellar job down on the South coast. Leeds meanwhile thrashed Chelsea 3-0 last weekend and they too look to be a side very much on the up. There is very little to split these two sides, but Brighton are a side in form, and they should prevail here.
Betting tip: Brighton to win the match ($1.91)
Brighton to win 2-1
Chelsea vs Leicester City – Stamford Bridge
Leicester City ($8.5)
Two teams in need of points already this season face off as Chelsea take on Leicester City. Hosts Chelsea were stuffed by Leeds on the road last time out and with just 4 points on the board from their opening three games, Thomas Tuchel is a man under the pump. Similarly, Leicester City are winless so far in this campaign and their disappointing 2-1 loss to Southampton last time out was particularly chastening. Leicester won’t roll over here, but Chelsea should win comfortably at home.
Betting tip: Chelsea to win the match ($1.44)
Chelsea to win 3-0
Liverpool vs Bournemouth – Anfield
Liverpool will be hoping to kick start their Premier League campaign as they take on Bournemouth. The reds have remarkably yet to win in the league this season and need to start picking up points very quickly. Bournemouth meanwhile were well beaten by Manchester City and Arsenal but their opening day win over Aston Villa will be serious cause for optimism. Liverpool could huff and puff a bit here, but they should eventually pick up all three points.
Betting tip: Liverpool to win the match ($1.13)
Liverpool to win 3-1
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace – Etihad Stadium
Manchester City ($1.2)
Crystal Palace ($18)
Having been held against Newcastle United last weekend, Manchester City will be desperate to get back on track against Crystal Palace. City remain unbeaten this term and look to be the team to catch once again in the Premier League. Crystal Palace meanwhile have proven to be a bogey team for City in recent years and they will look to disturb City as much as possible in this one. Palace will pose plenty of dangers, but City should prevail if they play to the best of their abilities.
Betting tip: Manchester City to win the match ($1.2)
Manchester City to win 2-1
Arsenal vs Fulham – Emirates Stadium
A London Derby is on the agenda on Saturday evening as Arsenal host Fulham. With three wins from three games played, Arsenal are the team to catch in the Premier League and Mikel Arteta certainly has his side purring currently. Fulham meanwhile are also unbeaten from their opening three Premier League games, and they look to be up for the top flight challenge this season under Marco Silva. Fulham should trouble Arsenal, but the Gunners are a good side, and they should pick up another win here.
Betting tip: Arsenal to win the match ($1.34)
Arsenal to win 3-1
Aston Villa vs West Ham United – Villa Park
Aston Villa ($2.38)
West Ham United ($3.3)
Two teams looking to climb away from early season trouble do battle as Aston Villa host West Ham United. Steven Gerrard has is a little under the cosh in the Premier League for Aston Villa so far this term and he will be hoping a return to Villa Park can inspire his side. West Ham United meanwhile are bottom of the table and winless from their first three games but progress in the Europa Conference League is sure to be confidence boosting. Both of these sides are low on confidence, making the draw a likely result.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.5)
Wolves vs Newcastle United – Molineux
Newcastle United ($2.75)
Two sides that look to have aspirations of a top half finish do battle in the West Midlands as Wolves take on Newcastle. Despite being edged out by Spurs last weekend, Wolves look well placed to trouble plenty of sides this year, with new recruits through the door. Newcastle meanwhile are unbeaten this term and gave champions Manchester City a real scare last time out. There is very little to split these sides on paper and a draw could be on the cards.
Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.3)
Nottingham Forest vs Tottenham – City Ground
Nottingham Forest ($7.3)
Newly promoted Nottingham Forest will be looking to uphold their strong start to the season as they welcome unbeaten Tottenham. Forest beat West Ham in their last home game and whilst they have ridden their luck at times so far this season, they look well equipped to deal with the rigours of the top flight. Tottenham meanwhile edged past Wolves last weekend and in the results business of the Premier League, Spurs just need to keep winning. This should be a good game, with Tottenham most likely to run out on top.
Betting tip: Tottenham to win the match ($1.5)
Tottenham to win 3-1
