We’re four games into the season and Liverpool are yet to score a 2nd half goal, that’s not a criticism as they are top of the league but they have been poor in the 2nd half of all matches they’ve played. Fortunately for them though they have got the results. Three of their games went under 2.50 goals (1-0) and they were gifted the the two they got at Swansea on Monday night. In their last three games they have managed 11 shots on target. If they continue like that it’s difficult to see them scoring two goals especially with creator Coutinho out.

All of Southampton’s league games so far have gone under 2.50 goals, with them failing to score in the last two and their goals from the previous two games were an 88th minute equaliser at home to Sunderland and a 90th minute penalty to beat West Brom. This current Southampton side are missing something they seem to have last season, they look tougher to beat but that approach may have cost them goals.

Based on current form this season I cannot see either side scoring two goal and I would of priced unders at 1.80.

Chelsea have failed to score in their last two league games and the match against Hull even ended in under 2.50 goals. The reason for this looks pretty obvious, they have no in-form strikers and their most creative player, Mata, is out of favour. I do however expect them to win this due to a) their defensive qualities and b) Fulham’s lack of a cutting edge especially away from home. Three of Fulham’s four games this season have ended under 2.50 goals with them failing to score more than one in all of them.

I don’t think that Fulham will score in this match, they won’t have enough of the ball or create enough chances to really threaten. So if you fancied overs I really think you’re hoping for Chelsea to score three goals, I couldn’t trust Chelsea to do that at the ┬ámoment.

Newcastle’s starting eleven has the quality to challenge for the top six whilst Hull will be in the relegation shake up. Apart from the opening day defeat at Man City, Newcastle have looked solid and with Ben Arfa, Cisse, Remy and Cabaye they should create too many chances here to not score.

Hull have had an adequate start to the season and they got their first goal from open play last weekend with Curtis Davies heading home from a corner. That will be their problem though I cannot see them scoring more than one goal on many occasions this season. It’s likely that they will fail to score on at least fifteen occasions and I expect this to be one of them.

Taking the view that Newcastle are top six quality and my belief that Hull will finish in the bottom three then the 1.83 available if a massive price.
