Manchester City are the latest team to be livid about VAR. It appeared that Gabriel Jesus had put the Citizens ahead in extra time of their home opener against Tottenham Hotspur, but his goal was disallowed after the review caught an inadvertent handball. That led to a livid Jesus protesting his complaints after the match as City were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Spurs. The result led to City falling out of first place, and Liverpool are currently top of the table. The Reds will face a test this week though as they host the only other team in the EPL with two wins.

Manchester United -1 and -1.5 vs. Crystal Palace, O/U 2.5 and 3
The Red Devils have rallied around Paul Pogba after he was subjected to racial abuse on social media following his penalty miss against Wolves last week. His decision to take the penalty over Marcus Rashford could have torn the locker room apart, but instead they have rallied around their star midfielder and will be motivated to put the last few days behind them against Palace. Palace are one of two teams that have yet to score this season.
Brighton & Hove Albion PK and -0.5 vs. Southampton FC, O/U 2 and 2.5
It’s been a great start to the Premier League season for Brighton. The Seagulls were considered one of the favorites to be relegated after a lackluster summer transfer window, yet they have impressed with a win and a draw in their first two matches. Brighton faces winless Southampton this week and could pick up a result that would give them some cushion.
Liverpool FC -1 and -1.5 vs. Arsenal FC, O/U 3 and 3.5
Although these are both Big Six clubs, the talent disparity between these two rosters is enormous. Arsenal only have two real weapons on the attack, while Liverpool can score in any number of ways. It’s hard to see a way that the Gunners can get a result here, especially since they were blasted 5-1 in their last trip to Anfield.
Watford FC PK and -0.5 vs. West Ham United, O/U 2.5 and 3
The other Soccer team that has been held scoreless is Watford. That’s a bit of a surprise considering the Hornets were somewhat prolific on the attack last year, but Troy Deeney, Gerardo Deulofeu, and Roberto Pereyra have not been able to break through. West Ham will look to keep that streak alive with Lukasz Fabianski playing well in net.
Norwich City +0.5 vs. Chelsea FC, O/U 3
Teemu Pukki has scored all four of Norwich’s goals this season, and he is tied with Raheem Sterling atop the scoring table. He has kept up his pace since the Canaries were promoted, and Norwich’s open style should lead to continued chances. That will make this match fun as Norwich won’t go into a shell against a Chelsea squad that have not had the same bite on the attack without Eden Hazard.
Sheffield United PK +0.5 vs. Leicester City, O/U 2 and 2.5
It’s been a dream start for the Blades. Sheffield United were an odds-on favorite to be immediately sent back down to Championship, but they are instead sitting on four points after two great defensive efforts. Leicester City have the talent to break through though, and the Foxes aren’t a team that drops points against lesser opponents.
Aston Villa PK and +0.5 vs. Everton FC, O/U 2.5 and 3
Sometimes it’s funny how life works. Villa looked to be the one promoted team that would be safe because of how much money they spent this offseason, but they are sitting on no points after their first two matches. They were somewhat unlucky in their loss to Bournemouth last week though, so there is decent value on the hosts here.
AFC Bournemouth +2 vs. Manchester City, O/U 3.5
This is likely to be the blowout of the week. City are mad, and they are playing a club that doesn’t defend well. Bournemouth are a lot like Norwich in that they prefer a more open style, but that is likely to spell death against the Citizens.
Tottenham Hotspur -1.5 and -2 vs. Newcastle United, O/U 3
Son Heung-min returns to Spurs on Sunday, and Tottenham will be delighted to have him back. The club just isn’t the same without him, and they will face a Newcastle side that has looked dismal in defense. Tottenham could run riot in this match with both Harry Kane and Son linking up often.
Wolverhampton Wanderers -0.5 vs. Burnley FC, O/U 2 and 2.5
Wolves have two results this campaign, but they were both draws. They need to pick up a win over a Burnley side that are off to a good start. Wolves have the talent to make a run at the Champions League, but they have to win games.
