ActiveWins 10/1 Saturday Treble27/09/2019
The beauty of football at this time of the year, is that there is so much of it.
The Premier League is starting to take shape, we’ve had plenty of international action, and the EFL Cup is already at the last 16 stage.
This weekend, however, sees the return of the top flight.
TV schedules often mean that we have to wait until Sunday for many of the big teams to entertain us, but not this week. We end September with an absolute cracker of a Saturday, with Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs all in action.
We’ve put together a tasty-looking Betfred 10/1 treble, that looks a real treat!
Are you ready? Let’s go.
Chelsea v Brighton
Stamford Bridge has a funny feeling about it at the moment. Sitting in the bottom half of the table with a negative goal difference doesn’t seem like an acceptable position for Chelsea to be in and, in reality, it isn’t.
However, for the first time in years, there is an element of patience being afforded to club legend Frank Lampard and his project. After all, he was unable to add to his new squad with Chelsea being given a transfer ban.
Lampard is putting his trust in youth, and you have to say his tactics are paying off. Mason Mount has been one of the stars of the season so far and is only 20 years old, while seven-goal starlet Tammy Abraham is only 21.
Runaway leaders Liverpool were hanging on in London last weekend, and were extremely lucky to leave with all three points. The opening day 4-0 defeat at Man Utd seems a distant memory and, when Chelsea turn it on, they’ve proven extremely difficult to contain.
A 5-2 away win at Wolves really turned heads, and a 3-2 victory at Norwich now shows to be an impressive result after the Canaries toppled reigning champs Man City.
Brighton, on the other hand, have failed to build on an impressive 3-0 humbling on Watford on the opening game of the season, and have fallen at the hands of Man City and Southampton since.
Consecutive draws against Newcastle and Burnley have stopped the rot, but a trip to a vibrant Chelsea could prove to be a difficult afternoon.

Spurs v Southampton
Just what is going wrong at Spurs? The Champions League finalists were once again tipped as the team to try and break the stranglehold of Liverpool and Man City, but have so far flattered to deceive.
Knocked out of the EFL Cup by lowly Colchester, Mauricio Pochettino will demand a response from his players, but will he get one?
Last time out in the league they surrendered a 1-0 lead at Leicester to leave the King Power stadium empty-handed, and a 4-0 triumph over Crystal Palace is their only victory in six outings.
Admittedly, that hammering of Palace did come in their last home match, and the Spurs faithful will be expecting a similar result against Southampton.
Ralph Hasenhuttl couldn’t have imagined a tougher start, losing their opening two fixtures against Burnley and Liverpool.
A brief recovery saw them go unbeaten in four, including away wins at Brighton and Sheffield United and a home draw with Man Utd.
However, their last league outing resulted in a 3-1 defeat at the hands of rivals Bournemouth, and they’ll be wary of a backlash at Spurs.
Tottenham have won all of their last three home games against Saints, and we expect them to continue this trend, and get their season back on track.

Everton v Man City
For Man City fans, it’s difficult not to feel thrilled with the start to the season.
They’ve scored two or more in every game they’ve played, and even put eight past Watford last weekend. It could have been so much more, with the champions 5-0 up after 18 minutes.
That’s what City can do. They can dismantle teams when they turn it on.
Pep Guardiola’s men have been at their scintillating best for the most part of the season, yet somehow manage to find themselves five points adrift of leaders Liverpool.
They did everything but grab a third in their 2-2 draw with Spurs, while the 3-2 defeat at Norwich can be filed under ‘flash in the pan’.
Since that disappointment, they’ve been faultless. Scoring 14 goals in their last three appearances without conceding a goal.
They visit Everton in the late kick-off, and face a side who are as hit and miss as they come.
A 2-0 defeat at home to Sheffield United was met with boos from the disgruntled Merseyside fans, and reacted by going 2-0 up inside 10 minutes as they progressed in the EFL Cup against Sheffield Wednesday.
Goodison Park will be angry, and City won’t have it all their own way. We expect Everton to put up a good fight, and even have spells where they trouble their guests, but can’t see beyond an away win.
