Manchester United followed up its 4-0 home win over West Ham with another 4-0 win on the road against Swansea City. The red-hot club will try to stay that way this Saturday night at home against Leicester City.
Manchester United is a -325 favorite at Old Trafford at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Four different players scored in the rout over Swansea City including Romelu Lukaku, who sealed the win for Manchester United with the team’s second goal of the game and his third of the season in the 82nd minute.
Leicester City (+950 to win, +425 to draw) will have their work cut out for them trying to slow down what looks to be the team to beat early in the 2017-18 season.
Chelsea and Everton both earned good results on the road last week, and the two teams will clash this Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea (-245) cashed in as a +265 underdog against Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday, overcoming the absences of Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas in a 2-1 upset victory.
Both players will return Sunday against Everton (+700 to win, +340 to draw), which comes into this match on the heels of a well-earned 1-1 draw against Manchester City – still the favorites on the odds to win the EPL championship.
Two hated rivals will also meet on the pitch Sunday when Liverpool (+110) hosts Arsenal (+230 to win, +255 to draw). After a 3-3 shootout with Watford in their season opener, Liverpool played a much more defensively sound game last week in a 1-0 victory at home over Crystal Palace. Arsenal are 1-1 on the season after losing to Stoke City 1-0 last week following a 4-3 win over Leicester City the week before.
Liverpool have won each of their last two matches against Arsenal after going just 2-8-8 in the previous 18 games in this rivalry.
While Manchester United’s spot atop the EPL table doesn’t come as much of a surprise, the 2-0-0 starts from Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion might have been more difficult to predict. Huddersfield are in action as a +275 home underdog against Southampton (+105 to win, +230 to draw) on Saturday and West Brom is a +130 favorite at home against Stoke City (+235 to win, +205 to draw) on Sunday.
