After a fortnight off while World Cup 2018 qualifying resumed, the intriguingly-tight 2016/17 Premier League campaign gets back underway with some mouth-watering clashes.
We’ve bundled together our weekly accumulator of the best bets on offer, which will pay out at over 50/1 if successful.
The Eagles are stuck in one of Alan Pardew’s woeful runs, with four defeats in a row recorded since drawing 0-0 at Everton seven weeks ago.
Facing a City side that have won four games by at least four goals this term and beat Palace by a combined scoreline of 9-1 home and away last season, the hosts look vulnerable to a thrashing.
Like neighbours Liverpool, the Toffees have struggled to keep the opposition off the scoresheet this season, with Ronald Koeman’s charges picking up just two Premier League clean sheets since the Dutchman took over in June.
It just so happens that visitors Swansea, despite claiming only five top-flight points all season, have failed to notch just three times in 13 all-competition fixtures since the campaign began.
Aitor Karanka’s side’s recent renaissance hasn’t really extended to the Riverside, with Boro avoiding defeat at basecamp for the first time since the opening day of the season when beating Bournemouth 2-0 three weeks ago.
In-form Chelsea will be a very different prospect, and given Karanka and co lost their previous three home matches against Watford, Tottenham and Palace, the Blues look the away banker of the weekend.
Visiting coach Arsene Wenger must feel this is his best chance to finally beat Jose Mourinho in the Premier League for some time, with United’s defence in disarray due to injuries and poor form.
The Gunners have won their past four road matches in the division, with the hosts taking all three points in just two of their last eight top-flight fixtures.
