Premier League predictions: Jones Is aware of sees Arsenal taking nothing as Crystal Palace take all of it on Friday Night time Soccer | Soccer Information

Our tipster Jones Is aware of is suitably refreshed and again within the prediction chair. He’s starting with a bang as he thinks Crystal Palace will beat Arsenal on FNF.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal, Friday 8pm, dwell on Sky Sports activities

Friday fifth August 6:30pm

Kick off 8:00pm

Selhurst Park below the lights on a Friday evening. Glad All Over. The nice outdated floor can be rocking.

That is the way you begin a brand new season.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal

Regardless of their spectacular pre-season work, I am very uncertain on whether or not Arsenal can run by means of this huge gauntlet and are available out with most factors. Palace solely suffered defeat in 4 Premier League dwelling video games final season – solely Chelsea (3), Man Metropolis (2) and Liverpool (0) misplaced fewer. And, Patrick Vieira’s group took 14 factors off the ‘huge six’ final season, together with beating Arsenal 3-0 at Selhurst Park in convincing trend and drawing 2-2 at The Emirates.

It makes the 4/5 with Sky Wager for an away win look very straightforward to oppose and a house win value chancing at 100/30, particularly if you think about Arsenal misplaced at locations like Everton, Southampton, Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Palace final season.

One other value that makes good sense to take severely is the 6/1 on Ben White choosing up a card. We glance to have a basic case of a positional change that hasn’t but been factored into the market as White, normally a centre-back, seems set to deputise for Takehiro Tomiyasu at full-back with William Saliba partnering Gabriel within the coronary heart of the defence. White is subsequently set for a showdown with card-drawing king Wilfried Zaha down the channel.

No participant drew extra yellow playing cards than Zaha final season (14) whereas in case you stretch the info out to the final 5 years, the Palace ahead has been liable for profitable 87 yellow playing cards for fouls towards him – the subsequent in that listing is Richarlison with 78.

The Arsenal version of ‘All or Nothing’ got here out on the eve of the season. In south London, they might properly get the latter.

SCORE PREDICTION: 2-1 | JONES KNOWS BEST BET: Ben White to be carded (6/1 with Sky Wager – Wager Right here!)

Fulham vs Liverpool, Saturday 12.30pm

They go once more. With such little change, barring a slight revamp of their ahead line, there may be absolute confidence that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool can be out to steamroll opponents from the primary whistle but once more. It is a group that scored 147 objectives throughout all competitions final season, together with 94 within the Premier League the place they’re unbeaten of their final 19 video games, profitable 16.

I am intrigued to see how Fulham fare with Marco Silva rightly again on the prime desk of English soccer, however simpler challenges will lie forward.

The value is a bit of skinny for me to formally again, however those who like enjoying the brief ones ought to take full benefit of the ten/11 with Sky Wager for Mohamed Salah to attain within the match and the increase of Evens for him to have a shot on course (£10 most).

Regardless of Liverpool’s rampant run of outcomes, the Egyptian’s kind went off the boil in the direction of the top of the marketing campaign however a protracted relaxation and signing a brand new contract on July 1 appears to have lit the hearth below Salah once more judging by his performances in pre-season. He ripped Manchester Metropolis aside within the Neighborhood Protect, reminding everybody simply why he landed the PFA and FWA Participant of the Yr awards final season.


Bournemouth vs Aston Villa, Saturday 3pm

Leaping to agency conclusions at this stage of the season is not a smart betting tactic however I might be flabbergasted if Bournemouth overperform on their season expectations from the markets, the place they’re odds-on to go down.

They solely simply scraped over the road final season within the Sky Wager Championship with a scarcity of attacking high quality an actual fear for his or her prospects as they make the step again into the massive time.

In opposition to, technically, the group that’s almost certainly to complete backside this season, Aston Villa’s attacking gamers are value a re-examination within the goalscorer markets in a match they’re taken to win fairly cosily. The one which stands out is Leon Bailey at 4/1 within the anytime market though I might wish to see him constantly carry out at this stage earlier than investing myself, regardless of his spectacular pre-season.

Bailey had a stop-start season following his £30m transfer from Leverkusen – the nice, the unhealthy and the accidents – however a promising pre-season has many Villa followers believing that is his restart season. It is typically both 9/10 or 5/10 from the Jamaican, however he tore Manchester United aside in Perth throughout pre-season. Steven Gerrard is not wanting choices however it appears Bailey’s kind has catapulted him to a beginning spot.


Leeds vs Wolves, Saturday 3pm – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

A troublesome season might be on the playing cards for Wolves. They perplexed many with their defiance of the important thing metrics all through final season, posting sturdy numbers early on when dropping matches, then these figures fell by means of the ground when outcomes began to select up. By the top of the marketing campaign, they have been fairly tedious to observe with no actual apparent recreation plan resulting in only one win of their final 9 when a European end was inside their grasp.

Morgan Gibbs-White is an thrilling prospect however whether or not he’ll produce the identical stage as when on mortgage within the Championship is debatable, and Pedro Neto might have the world at his toes if he recaptures his kind and health. Too many ifs, although.

Leeds, in the meantime, look a group to take a seat again and look ahead to just a few weeks earlier than making any sweeping statements after a summer time of huge change inside their ranks. It might go both means below Jesse Marsch.

This actually is a horrible match to try to come to a assured conclusion on. I am backing out.


Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest, Saturday 3pm – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

Those who have solid their eye over my ante-post season previews, will know I’m totally invested in Callum Wilson scoring objectives for the Toon this marketing campaign. I am on him to win the Golden Boot at 33/1 and make the England World Cup squad at 6/1, so it will not come as a shock to learn I am enjoying him to attain this weekend.

Wilson has a historical past of scoring objectives early on in a marketing campaign. Within the final 9 seasons when he has been match sufficient to start out a season (eight out of 9), Wilson has scored on common 5 objectives within the first eight matchdays of that season.

General it really works out at a mean objectives scored per 90 minutes of 0.6 within the first eight matchdays of a season. That compares to a 0.3 common in video games over the course of the remainder of the season. His physique appears to peak after the pre-season interval.

Wilson is actually speaking a very good recreation, too. He mentioned: “This season, I really feel sturdy, I really feel match, I really feel strong. It is right down to me now to show these doubters incorrect. I thrive off that.”

All the pieces factors to him and Newcastle beginning with a bang. He’ll be carrying my cash this weekend within the first goalscorer market at 5/1 – the primary of many, we hope.

SCORE PREDICTION: 3-1 | JONES KNOWS BEST BET: Callum Wilson to attain first (5/1 with Sky Wager – Wager Right here!)

Tottenham vs Southampton, Saturday 3pm – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

Spurs followers are proper to be excited concerning the forthcoming season. My ideas on them being a possible menace to Manchester Metropolis and Liverpool might be learn right here and, on that foundation, they need to carry far an excessive amount of high quality for a flimsy Southampton facet who’re at all times nice to observe however concede too many objectives at key factors in matches.

Discovering worth in ‘participant prop’ markets like pictures goes to turn into more and more more durable this season with the 5 substitutions rule prone to affect on enjoying time for sure gamers with no tweaking of the costs supplied.

That, added to an already tightening up on costs by bookmakers in these specific markets, goes to make it more durable for lovers of such quirky betting alternatives. But, there are nonetheless angles to use and Kyle Walker-Peters is a person to actually become involved with in his shot costs. The ever-improving defender averaged 0.8 pictures per 90 minutes final season as boss Ralph Hasenhuttl gave loads of license for his full-backs to hitch assaults, generally in very central positions.

A swap to a again three this season might imply much more emphasis on the vast gamers setting the tone for assaults and Walker-Peters undoubtedly has the power to make a distinction within the remaining third. Southampton aren’t going to take a seat again in north London so I am very pleased to put money into Walker-Peters, towards his former membership, to fireplace at the very least two pictures on objective at a temping value of 5/1 with Sky Wager.

SCORE PREDICTION: 3-1 | JONES KNOWS BEST BET: Kyle Walker-Peters to have two or extra pictures (5/1 with Sky Wager – Wager Right here!)

Everton vs Chelsea, Saturday 5.30pm, dwell on Sky Sports activities – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

Saturday sixth August 5:00pm

Kick off 5:30pm

Deciding how a lot emphasis pre-season kind has on a membership’s prospects for when the intense stuff will get going is at all times a difficult one to place into apply. Even in keeping with their supervisor, Chelsea are removed from able to be at their finest for this journey to Goodison Park. They head into the brand new season with considerations over whether or not they can replicate, not to mention enhance on, the third-place end and couple of cup finals they achieved final time round.

As my colleague Peter Smith defined in his pre-season piece evaluation on the west London facet, Chelsea have been introduced with an especially difficult run of dwelling video games as much as the World Cup break, with Tottenham, Leicester, West Ham, Liverpool, Wolves, Man Utd and Arsenal coming to Stamford Bridge in that order earlier than the pause in November. And such is the extent of the highest two, a sluggish begin might imply curtains for a title push earlier than even the season has actually begun.

This simply could be a good time for Everton to make use of the Goodison Park fortress to its most towards an undercooked favorite. Not solely have Frank Lampard’s facet gained 4 of their final six dwelling matches, they’ve additionally loved 4 straight dwelling wins over Chelsea, who’re beginning to discover the Toffees a little bit of a bogey group to beat.

Who’s going to attain that profitable objective although? Richarlison is gone, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is now injured and Chelsea are very defensively watertight. Bore draw it’s.


Leicester vs Brentford, Sunday 2pm

Forgive and overlook. That is my motto with Leicester Metropolis and their underperformance final season.

They completed a disappointing eighth within the Premier League final time period, choosing up 52 factors. It was a 12-point underachievement on what we had seen from Brendan Rodgers’ facet within the two earlier seasons. Key defensive accidents value them the chance to play Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans collectively as a partnership final season. That was huge. Having a fully-fit Fofana able to go from the primary whistle is an thrilling prospect. To my eye, he is the most effective younger centre-back in world soccer. No marvel Chelsea are toying with the thought of paying £80m for him.

With a much more settled facet and no European soccer to barter, there may be sufficient high quality within the dugout in Rodgers and in his thrilling younger facet to actually kick-on once more this season. Learn right here why I am backing them for a top-six end and if they will be able to these heights, Brentford actually should not be giving them too many issues.


Manchester United vs Brighton, Sunday 2pm, dwell on Sky Sports activities – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

Manchester United vs Brighton & Hove Albion

It might sound utterly ludicrous to say this about Manchester United, however this season could be seen as a prolonged pre-season for when the true judgement on Erik ten Haag might be made in the course of the ’23/24 marketing campaign. It is a likelihood to place some constructing blocks in place to verify United can flourish once more. Simpler mentioned than accomplished on this period of expectant and inpatient soccer followers.

The signings of Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez appear a wise begin, although, and I will be watching intently to see if the brand new boss can get his message throughout early to a dressing room that regarded so divided and unmotivated final season. Fairly frankly I do not know how they may fare this weekend towards a harmful and supremely coached Brighton facet. The draw it’s.

The costs across the performances of Jadon Sancho are ones to maintain on the radar as I am anticipating him to flourish below the steering of the brand new boss.

The 22-year-old’s first season within the Premier League noticed him rating three objectives and supply three assists and infrequently present his true skill. But, there have been indicators in pre-season that Sancho could be about to recapture a few of his Borussia Dortmund kind, scoring three objectives and enjoying with rather more aggression and zip.

That confidence might filter by means of to his pictures and pictures on course potential over the subsequent few weeks, the place he’s being priced up on the premise of final season’s numbers. Like my total opinion on Manchester United, he is finest watched relatively than punted this week however preserve an in depth eye on him.


West Ham vs Manchester Metropolis, Sunday 4.30pm, dwell on Sky Sports activities – PLAY SUPER 6 TO WIN £1M!

West Ham vs Manchester City

Making an attempt to foretell when Manchester Metropolis are going to lose a soccer match is a little bit of a thankless activity. However such is their skinniness within the markets most weeks, it is one thing I am at all times trying to take into account.

This might be the suitable time to strike.

To beat Metropolis you want the opposition to play with nice tempo and energy in transition, defend deep and trigger a menace from set-pieces. The Hammers tick all of these containers in what needs to be one other worthwhile season for David Moyes, whose job has turn into simpler holding maintain of Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen.

These two are able to producing performances to compete with Metropolis’s star males however there’s a nagging doubt in my thoughts that Pep Guardiola could have his boys a lot additional ahead than they have been within the Neighborhood Protect. And let’s not overlook, Man Metropolis’s solely defeat of their remaining 28 Premier League video games final season (W23 D4) was the 3-2 defeat vs Tottenham in February. A slender away win it’s.
