⚽ Luton v Tottenham (Saturday 12:30 GMT) ⚽

Tottenham were involved in a hugely dramatic 2-1 victory against Liverpool last weekend, with Luis Diaz’s opener wrongly disallowed after a huge mix-up in the VAR room. The Reds were reduced to nine men due to Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota both being sent off, with Joel Matip’s injury-time own goal handing Spurs all three points.

Ange Postecoglu will be hoping for a much more comfortable afternoon’s work when his side travel to Luton on Saturday, but the Hatters could provide a tougher test than expected after claiming their first ever Premier League win against Everton last weekend. However, they were beaten by fellow newly promoted side Burnley in midweek, with only goal difference keeping them outside of the relegation zone.

Despite undoubtedly having fortune on their side last time out, Spurs have looked massively improved under their new manager, and the safe money will be on backing them to win here. However, we will boost our odds by adding Son Heung-min and James Maddison both to score. Son is on fire at the moment with six goals in his last four games, while Maddison is probably due a goal having blanked across the last three.

Tottenham to win & Son Heung-min & James Maddison both to score

⚽ Arsenal v Manchester City (Sunday 16:30 GMT) ⚽

Matches do not get much bigger than this one, and in truth it is probably a shame to see last season’s top two teams face each other this early in the season.

However, Man City’s 2-1 defeat away to Wolves last weekend has opened things up at the top of the table, with Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool all sitting within two points of the Citizens ahead of the upcoming international break.

Clearly, this is an extremely difficult result to predict, but Pep Guardiola’s side will be confident after winning both meetings last season. Both teams scored in both of those matches, though, with Erling Haaland netting on both occasions.

We will start our Bet Builder with these two selections, while adding Over 29.5 Booking Points in what should be a fiercely contested encounter. Lastly, we will back the away team to earn Over 2.5 Corners & Over 8.5 Corners overall.
