Premier League 2018/19: Week One Tips

- 13:08, 9th August 2018
Maurizio Sarri will be eyeing an opening Premier League win as Chelsea boss when his side meet Huddersfield.

The Premier League is back up and running this weekend and our expert has picked out tips from four mouthwatering games on Saturday.

Huddersfield v Chelsea

(Sat, 15:00)

Chelsea to win to nil @ 13/8 - BET NOW

It has been another summer of wholesale change at Chelsea, with Maurizio Sarri coming in to replace Antonio Conte as manager and things did not get off to the best start for the Italian as his side were comprehensively beaten 2-0 by Manchester City in the Community Shield last weekend.

There have been further changes at Stamford Bridge since that fixture, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois leaving to join Real Madrid and Kepa Arrizabalaga coming in as his big-money replacement.

Kepa is likely to be thrown in at the deep end on Saturday but he could not have asked for a nicer first game, as Huddersfield were the joint-lowest scorers in the Premier League last term.

The Terriers have not particularly bolstered their attacking options during the summer, bar the arrival of the untested Adama Diakhaby, and it is likely to be another defensive approach from David Wagner's side this term.

Huddersfield only scored three goals in their final 10 Premier League fixtures last season to further underline their bluntness in front of goal and Chelsea are likely to have too much.

Fulham v Crystal Palace


Fulham to win @ 6/4 - BET NOW

There is a great deal of optimism surrounding Fulham following their promotion to the Premier League and that has been heightened by the arrivals of players such as Jean Michael Seri, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Alfie Mawson.

Many people are tipping Slavisa Jokanovic's side to comfortably survive in the top-flight and the feel-good factor that surrounds a newly promoted team should be enough on its own to help the Cottagers see off a Palace side that, by contrast, have not made waves in the transfer market.

Palace have managed to hold on to talisman Wilfried Zaha, although it remains to be seen what frame of mind he will be in during the opening weeks of the season.

Bournemouth v Cardiff

(Sat 15:00)

Under 2.5 goals @ 17/20 - BET NOW

Bournemouth have developed a reputation for being easy on the eye since their promotion to the Premier League in 2015, but boss Eddie Howe appears to have looked to tighten things up with the arrival of club-record signing Jefferson Lerma.

Out of the three newly promoted teams Cardiff look set to be the most pragmatic, as the Bluebirds had the joint-best defence in the Championship last season.

They scored fewer goals than 18th-placed Hull, so the match at the Vitality Stadium is likely to be a cagey affair.

Wolves v Everton

(Sat, 17:30)

Both teams to score @ 10/11 - BET NOW

Another newly promoted team that have enjoyed a productive summer are Wolves, adding real quality and experience to their squad in the form of Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho and on Thursday, Leander Dendoncker.

Wolves were the top scorers in the Championship last season and it is hard to see an Everton defence, that conceded more goals than relegated duo Swansea and West Brom last term, keeping them at bay.

The Toffees also boast a real attacking threat emphasised by the big-money arrival of Richarlison, while the likes of Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun could also be in for big seasons, as they are now settled in following their arrivals in January.
