After being let down by below-par Sunderland and Tottenham in last weekend’s Home Heroes, it is time to put our faith back in the big boys again and trust Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle to land a successful banker treble this time around.
Liverpool have a great record against Chelsea but their sluggish start to the season renders them outsiders, while Fulham have never won at Arsenal and Newcastle almost always beat teams below them at St James’ Park, which is bad news for visiting West Ham.

And here’s why I’m confident about my chances of returning to winning ways.
Arsenal to beat Fulham @ 12/25
Arsenal’s home form this season has been patchy but Fulham have never beaten the Gunners away from home in their history, so the scale of the task facing the Cottagers shouldn’t be underestimated.
As well as history being against them, Martin Jol’s side have won just once in six games on the road in all competitions so far this campaign, losing three and drawing two.
They are yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels either and with Arsenal having scored 35 goals in 16 games – an average of more than two per match – including ten in their last three, another home win looks more than likely again here.
Newcastle to beat West Ham @ 19/20
Newcastle have a great record at home, having not lost at St James’ Park to a team outside the top four since December 2011.
This season they would climb three places to seventh in the Premier League table if the standings were based on home form alone, having won three out of five so far, and they haven’t lost to West Ham on Tyneside since October 1998 – nine games ago.
The last time the sides met at St James’ Park in the 2010-11 season the Magpies won 5-0 and, to top it off, West Ham have looked shaky on the road so far this campaign, losing at Swansea and Wigan and being held to a goalless draw at Norwich.
Even with the impact of Thursday’s Europa League draw at Club Brugge to consider, Alan Pardew’s men should still have too much in the tank for Sam Allardyce’s Hammers.
Chelsea to beat Liverpool @ 91/100
On the surface, this might seem like quite a strange selection. Liverpool have an excellent record against Chelsea, winning five of the last six matches against them in all competitions, including three of the last four at Stamford Bridge.
But Brendan Rodgers’ side have won just two of their ten Premier League matches this season compared to Chelsea’s seven, while the Blues’ defeat to Manchester United in October was only their second home loss in the whole of 2012.
Liverpool have certainly shown signs of moving in the right direction under Rodgers but they are not there yet, while Chelsea, on the other hand, look the real deal and are shaping up to be genuine title contenders once again.
Expect Roberto Di Matteo’s men to edge what could prove an entertaining clash on Sunday and one which will hopefully bring home the treble.
