Understandably Manchester United are overwhelming favourites for this but due to that goals markets are out of line. If we take this seasons performances then the general consensus is that Man Utd are lacking creativity, this has been highlighted in their last two games as they’ve failed to scored. In the matches against Chelsea and Liverpool combined they’ve only had seven shots on target. Many people believe that Crystal Palace are exactly the same a Blackpool were, but this is just wrong. Holloway showed in last seasons play-offs and so far this season that he is able to set out tactics that make Crystal Palace hard to break down. Tottenham never looked like scoring against them bar the penalty that was given away (handball), the two goals against Stoke both came from defensive mistakes. The markets suggest that, like Man City v Hull two weeks ago, this will be a 3-0 or 4-0 drubbing. I just cannot see that from the matches I’ve seen this season. Palace will be hard to break down and if they don’t lose concentration I cannot see them scoring more than two goals. Palace do have some good players going forward but they will find it tough to see enough of the ball. I would price under 2.50 goals at around the 2.25 mark.

West Brom have been on an awful run since the turn of the year and this weekend they travel to a side who are usually strong at home. Fulham have managed to assemble some good players in the transfer window and will be a treat going forward this year. By contrast West Brom look toothless, three games played an no goals scored. They’ve also only managed 16 shots in those games and against Swansea they didn’t even have one on target. With Ben Foster out injured they also look vulnerable defensively. The market has these two sides priced as equal but at the end of the season I expect Fulham to be 8-11 and West Brom to be a bottom 6 side.

I cannot see Chelsea losing here, Everton will pass the ball around in front of them lose it and be hit on the counter. Once Chelsea take the lead Everton will again struggle to break them down. Lukaku is a good signing but as he’s on loan from Chelsea he’ll be unavailable, that leaves Everton with Jelavic leading the line and his 7 goals from 37 games last season isn’t exactly inspiring. On a weekend where Arsenal and Man City are both odds on away from home and Liverpool are priced at 2.25 away to Swansea, the 2.38 available for Chelsea really stands out.
