Weekend Premier League football. (17th/18th Oct)

    The international break is almost at an end with a mouth-watering selection of fixtures announcing the return of league football in style this weekend, and bet365 are offering a host of fantastic betting and Live Streaming opportunities!

    The fixture grabbing all the headlines at the moment is Tottenham v Liverpool, as Jürgen Klopp takes the reigns at Liverpool in what will be his managerial debut in the Premier League. The Normal One was welcomed to Merseyside with rabid anticipation by Liverpool fans and the German has promised the Anfield faithful a title in the next four years.

    The weight of expectation will be enormous for the former Dortmund manager, but whether he can deliver three points at the weekend using the current Liverpool squad is debatable. Tottenham are arguably one of the form teams in the league at the moment, beating first placed Manchester City in a 4-1 thriller recently.

    Liverpool are without captain Jordan Henderson and summer signings Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino whilst Spurs are without Son Heung Min and a few periphery players.

    Spurs are narrow favourites to take the win at White Hart Lane at 7/5 (2.40) and are unbeaten at home in the league this season, whilst The Reds are a touch longer at 15/8 (2.87). Many will be backing Daniel Sturridge to find the net again this weekend after scoring two goals against Villa recently and he’s 5/1 (6.00) to score first or last and 6/4 (2.50) to find the net anytime.

    Having forced his way into the Spurs squad and more recently the England team, Dele Alli has seen plenty of speculative backing to score this weekend, and he’s 10/3 (4.33) to do just that.

    Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways after a disastrous few weeks, and are 1/3 (1.33) to break their duck against Aston Villa in a particularly inviting home fixture. Villa have lost their last four Premier League games and since their opening day win against newly-promoted Bournemouth have gained just one point from seven matches.

    In the last six seasons Chelsea have won their home matches against Aston Villa by an aggregate score of 24-8, and both teams have recorded only one clean sheet each this season in the league, so goals should be on the cards. Eden Hazard is 11/2 (6.50) to net first in the encounter, and scored in both games during the international break for Belgium with two assists and a goal in his last three Premier League matches.

    A slightly riskier option to consider though is Willian at 10/1 (11.00). He has scored Chelsea’s last three goals, and also bagged a brace for Brazil in their World Cup Qualifier this week against Venezuela.
