2016-17 Premier League - Arsenal vs Swansea

New Swansea manager Bob Bradley has a big job on his hands this weekend - travelling with his team to the Emirates in London to face top four side Arsenal.

He's pulled off some greats results in the past - nearly getting Le Havre promoted to the top flight in France last year would be a good place to start, as well as his work with the US Men's National Football Team. He'll be onto something even better if he manages to end Arsenal's five game winning streak with a victory for the Swans, though.

The lack of Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal lineup may give him the chance, though we have to say that it's a slim one. The best place to back Swansea to win is at BoyleSports, at a market leading 12/1.

The injured Giroud and Ramsay will be causing Arsene Wenger some concerns, but he won't be struggling to replace them in his squad. Arsenal have always been a side with strength in depth, no matter what their fans might think after another low key transfer window. Swansea are something of a bogey team for the Gunners - Arsenal average 0.8 points per game against them at home, their worst rate against any side, and the Swans are actually chasing a third consecutive win at the Emirates. Arsenal have only won one of their last five league games against Swansea.

We suspect that's going to change here, though. Swansea are in a bit of turmoil at the moment, while Arsenal are looking strong in the league. The best place to back the home win is at StanJames, whose price of 2/7 is representative of the market.

Given the relative form of the teams you can get better odds on an Arsenal win than that, provided you don't think Swansea will have anything to say in reply to them. The best place to back Arsenal to Win to Nil is at SkyBet, at 11/10.

2016-17 Premier League - Chelsea vs Leicester City

This weekend's early fixture sees last season's Champions, Leicester City, visiting Chelsea, the Champions of the season before. Chelsea's title defence was peculiarly shambolic, and lead to the firing of manager Jose Mourinho. Leicester's title defence isn't off to any better a start, though Claudio Ranieri's job is probably safer right now than that of current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea may be seventh in the league and knocking on the door of the European places, but their owners and fans expect more of them. They are five points shy of Man City at the top - by no means unrecoverable, but still a significant gap already at this stage of the season. A win here would be a useful three points as well as giving them a bit more confidence to take into their next few games.

On paper and on form, Chelsea edge this one, and the best place to back them is at BoyleSports, who will give you a decent 8/13.

So what can Leicester do to win this? It's hard to say - their form has fluctuated so much this season. They have impressed in the Champions League, but their league games have been very hit and miss. They are currently on a run of three losses in three away games this season, but last season they didn't lose to Chelsea at all. In fact, the last time they ran out at Stamford Bridge, Leicester got a guard of honour from the Chelsea players having just been crowned Premier League Champions.

There won't be any guard of honour this time round, but if Leicester turn up on their Champions League form there's still a good chance they could sneak the win. The best place to back that is at 888Sports, who are narrowly edging the best price on the market at 51/10.

All said, though, Chelsea are the likelier victors this weekend. We still fancy Leicester to score, though, so the best place to pick up Chelsea to Win and Both Teams to Score is at Coral, who have picked it out as one of their Match Specials at 5/2.
