Leicester overcame Arsenal to get back to winning ways whilst Manchester United and Chelsea played out a turgid 0-0 draw. At the bottom of the table, Burnley, West Brom, Sheffield United and Fulham all await their first wins of the season and it looks set to be a long season ahead for all of those sides.

Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the Premier League:

EPL Week 7 Tips

Wolves vs Crystal Palace – Molineux

Wolves ($2)

Crystal Palace ($4.5)

Draw ($3.4)

Two sides looking to start putting a run of results together face off as Wolves host Crystal Palace. Inconsistency has been at the heart of Wolves’ relatively poor start to the season and their late draw with Newcastle last weekend was testament to that. They have a side capable of challenging for the European places and will be looking to start demonstrating that here. Crystal Palace picked up all three points at Fulham last time out and are a team known for playing their most expansive football away from home. Palace have proven themselves in the top-flight over the past few seasons and tend to look good on the road and look excellent value to pick up a point here.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.4)

1-1 Draw

Sheffield United vs Manchester City – Bramall Lane

Sheffield United ($10)

Manchester City ($1.33)

Draw ($6)

Sheffield United will be looking for their first win of the season as they take on Manchester City at Bramall Lane. For Sheffield United, things don’t get any easier as the Blades have made a poor start to the season. They have just one point to their name from the opening 6 games and look to be a side lacking confidence – although they did trouble Liverpool for long periods last time out. The blues got back to winning ways in the Champions League over Marseille in midweek, but their league form has been patchy, and they will be all too aware of the importance of picking up wins – starting with this one. This is a free hit for Sheffield United, but City should be able to get the job done here.

Betting tip: Manchester City to win the match and both teams to score ($2.25)

Manchester City to win 2-1

Burnley vs Chelsea – Turf Moor

Burnley ($6.5)

Chelsea ($1.56)

Draw ($4.75)

Burnley host Chelsea as they await their first win of the Premier League season. For the Clarets, their top-flight knowhow could come in handy here as they bounce back from their poor start to the campaign. Sean Dyche will be eager to see his side steer clear of the relegation picture and upsetting the bigger teams at Turf Moor is something he has done throughout his career. Chelsea meanwhile are struggling with the consistency issues but looked to have shored up their defence, keeping three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. They need a Premier League win though and should prevail here against a potentially dangerous Burnley side.

Betting tip: Chelsea to win the match ($1.56)

Chelsea to win 2-1

Liverpool vs West Ham United – Anfield

Liverpool ($1.4)

West Ham United ($8.5)

Draw ($5.5)

Liverpool will be looking continue their solid recent form as they take on West Ham at Anfield. The reds have picked up four points from their last 3 league games and their win over Sheffield United last time out should give them a real confidence boost. With 2 wins from 2 in the Champions League too, they look to be dealing with the injury to Virgil van Dijk as well as could be expected. The Hammers meanwhile picked up a great point at home to Manchester City last time out and displayed some dogged defending when it mattered. David Moyes also seems to have plenty of goals in his team and whilst they may score at Anfield, beating the Champions on their home patch looks a bridge too far.

Betting tip: Liverpool to win the match and both teams to score ($2.1)

Liverpool to win 3-1

Aston Villa vs Southampton – Villa Park

Aston Villa ($2.5)

Southampton ($2.8)

Draw ($3.65)

Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from their first league defeat of the season as they host Southampton. Villa had won their opening 4 games but came back down to earth with a bump last time out, losing 3-0 at home to newly promoted Leeds. Dean Smith will want to see a response from his men here. Southampton meanwhile will be looking to build on their solid start to the season and their win over Everton last time out was testament to how far they had come this term. The Saints are a side that never know when they are beaten, and they could leave Villa Park with all three points in the bag here.

Betting tip: Southampton to win the match ($2.8)

Southampton to win 2-1

Newcastle United vs Everton – St James’s Park

Newcastle United ($4)

Everton ($2)

Draw ($3.6)

Newcastle host Everton in what promises to be an excellent game in the North East. The Toon will be looking to add to their tally of 8 points for the season, following yet another last gasp equaliser at Wolves last time out. Steve Bruce has made his side very hard to beat but their home form needs to improve if they are to climb the table. Everton meanwhile saw their unbeaten start crash at Southampton last weekend and they will be eager to bounce back. Carlo Ancelotti will be all too aware it is still early days in the season, and he’ll be looking for a big away win here. This could be a very good game between two sides full of confidence and a draw looks the most likely result.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw and both teams to score ($4.5)

1-1 Draw

Manchester United vs Arsenal – Old Trafford

Manchester United ($2.1)

Arsenal ($3.55)

Draw ($3.75)

A classic Premier League rivalry is reignited as Manchester United host Arsenal. United drew with Chelsea last time out in the Premier League but should be buoyant following their thumping of RB Leipzig in the Champions League in midweek. Arsenal will also be looking to get back to winning ways in the league, having lost their last two games to Manchester City and Leicester City. The Gunners are a side with plenty of potential, but they need to start picking up results quickly – something Mikel Arteta will be hoping to change here. This should be a very good game between two excellent sides and a draw looks to be the most likely result.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw and both teams to score ($4.5)

1-1 Draw

Tottenham vs Brighton – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham ($1.6)

Brighton ($5.75)

Draw ($4.25)

Tottenham will be looking to build on their win over Burnley last time out as they host Brighton. Spurs have got plenty of fire power in their ranks this season but are lacking a little consistency – particularly at home. Dropped points against Everton, Newcastle and West Ham in the league have meant they are yet to win a Premier League game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season. The Seagulls meanwhile were pegged back late on by West Brom last time out – denying them all three points. Graham Potter has a side capable of challenging for the top half this season, but their defensive struggles continue to haunt them. Tottenham should be full of confidence and could put Brighton to the sword here.

Betting tip: Tottenham to win the match to nil ($1.9)

Tottenham to win 3-0

Fulham vs West Bromwich Albion – Craven Cottage

Fulham ($2.5)

West Bromwich Albion ($3)

Draw ($3.4)

Two sides seeking their first wins of the season face off as Fulham take on West Bromwich Albion. The Cottagers were well beaten by Crystal Palace last time out and Scott Parker needs to find a winning formula quickly in the Premier League. For West Brom meanwhile, this is a chance to play with a sense of abandon not afforded to them at home and their late point picked up at Brighton last time out could give them a real confidence boost. Slavan Bilic looks to have his work cut out with those who run the club, but he could galvanise his men into picking up a point on the road here.

Betting tip: The match to finish as a draw ($3.4)

1-1 Draw

Leeds United vs Leicester City – Elland Road

Leeds United ($2.65)

Leicester City ($2.7)

Draw ($3.6)

Monday Night Football promises to be a classic as Leeds take on Leicester. The Whites have settled in well to Premier League life and their 3-0 win at Aston Villa last time out was almost the perfect performance. Steering clear of the relegation picture will be at the top of the agenda but they will also fancy their chances in games such as these. For Leicester City meanwhile this should be another chance to show how dangerous they can be away from home. Their win over Arsenal last time out was a timely reminder of the dangers they pose but consistency will be the thing Brendan Rodgers’s side crave –  with 2 wins and 2 defeats from their last 4 Premier League games. This should be a really good game between two good sides, but Leicester are full of confidence and should win this one.

Betting tip: Leicester City to win the match ($2.7)

Leicester City to win 2-1
