Our previewer Jamie Pacheco thinks this game has goals written all over it and recommends you bank on at least four.
He says: “As a same-game multi-bet you can back Calvert-Lewin, the league’s top scorer no less, to score anytime at 11/10. You can also back Bamford, the league’s fourth-highest scorer and he of the flawless away scoring record, at 2/1.”

Dan Fitch analyses the Opta Stats to make his weekly Premier League predictions including backing Southampton to pile more pressure on Manchester United when they meet on Sunday.
He says: “Southampton are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games (W5 D2), with only Tottenham on a longer current run in the competition. Saints last went longer without defeat between September-November 2013 under Mauricio Pochettino (8).”

Infogol’s Steven Railston uses expected goals (xG) to predict winners and scorelines of every match in Gameweek 10.
While Spurs have created more chances (2.0 xGF pg) than Chelsea (22), they’ve actually found the back of the net less (21). Their defensive record is also inferior, and while Man City couldn’t find a way past Hugo Lloris last weekend (xG: TOT 0.7 – 2.1 MCI), Chelsea might have no such problem. The hosts can win (57%), but Tottenham won’t go quietly and are predicted to score (59% BTTS).
Back the 2-1 @ 9.89/1
Infogo provide the same comprehensive score predictions for Serie A, La Liga and the Bundesliga.

After picking up three winners and a push last weekend, German football expert Kevin Hatchard’s back with four more Bundesliga selections.
He says: “Bielefeld haven’t scored a single first-half goal, and it’s unlikely that will change against arguably the best defence in the league.”

Class will tell in Ligue 1 this weekend as the top sides are set to triumph on Sunday says James Eastham in his preview of the pick of France’s top flight.
He says: “Nimes were 1-0 winners at Reims last weekend but their run of four straight defeats before that fortuitous victory was more reflective of their recent performance levels.”
