The Scout: EPL Matchday 10

Watford vs Huddersfield
27th October, 10.30pm WST

It’s been hard to get a read on Watford this season. A blistering start to the year saw them with a perfect record after four games, and then go on to secure just one point in their next four.

Last week’s 2-0 win over Wolves was timely to say the least and The Hornets still find themselves nicely positioned at 7th on the table, coming up against a dismal Huddersfield outfit sitting second from last and still chasing their first win.

Huddersfield have lost by two or more goals in 11 of their last 20 away games in the Premier League and have managed just four goals for the season – good for last in the League. Look for Argentinean midfielder Roberto Pereyra to be at the forefront of things here for Watford.

Fulham vs Bournemouth
27th October, 10.30pm WST

There were high hopes for newly promoted Fulham, however nine fixtures in they sit 18th on the table with the worst defensive record in the League, conceding a disastrous 12 goals in their last three matches.

6th placed Bournemouth continue to impress. Their attacking trio of Callum Wilson (3 goals, 4 assists), Joshua King (4 goals, 1 assist) and Ryan Fraser (3 goals, 3 assists) have been pivotal through the opening part of the season and will like their chances to wreak a little bit of havoc against this Fulham defense.

Despite failing to score last week, Bournemouth’s attacking form is undeniable. There has been over 2.5 goals in all but one of their last eight Premier League away games, and if the trend is to continue this weekend, those goals could all belong to Cherries’ players.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
28th October, 9.30pm WST

Arsenal are the in-form team of the Premier League, and with seven wins in a row, they’ve surged to equal 3rd on the table. Home team Crystal Palace (15th) are on an opposite trajectory banking just one point from their last four games.

The Eagles have the second worst goal scoring record in the Premier League with a measly 5 goals for the season, and an alarming zero goals from their four home fixtures. Striker Wilfred Zaha carries the goal scoring burden alone and opposition defenders are acutely aware of this. He has scored three goals and has an assist, making him involved in all but one of the team’s goals this season.

The Gunners attack is on fire! Led by Mesut Ozil (3 goals, 1 assist), Alexandre Lacazette (4 goals, 2 assists) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang they are the envy of most in the Premier League. Gabonese striker Aubameyang may have found his new role coming off the bench after his 63rd and 66th minute goals helped Arsenal to a 3-1 win over Leicester last week.

Suggested Bet: Match Result Arsenal @ $1.80*

*Odds correct as at 11.30am WST 26th October 2018
