West Brom vs Sheff Utd: 0-0 & 1-1 correct scores 7/1 & 5/1 here:

Brighton vs Liverpool, 12.30pm

Jurgen Klopp clearly had half an eye on this dreaded 12.30pm kick-off with his rotated team selection for Wednesday's Champions League defeat by Atalanta.

So we can fully expect messrs Robertson, Firmino, Fabinho, Jota and co to come back in – although it's then another quick turnaround for another Champions League match on Tuesday which the Reds now can't afford to lose.

But is tiredness already an issue? Liverpool have won just one of four league matches on their travels (D2, L1) – including a 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa – and are yet to score beyond the 73rd minute in all those matches.

They have netted the game's final goal in just one of the four.

Brighton, meanwhile, grabbed a win at Aston Villa last time out that their statistics hinted was coming.

They sit in the top half of the Premier League for metrics such as shots (112 – 8th), touches (6106 – 10th), passes (4492 – 10th), hitting the woodwork (six – 2nd), and big chances missed (ten – 6th).

And while they are still searching for a first home win of the season (D2, L2), they have dominated possession, goal attempts and corners in three of those four games.

So an upset home win at 17/4 ? Or a draw at an equally enticing 16/5 with thepools.com.

Maybe not. Brighton have conceded three or more goals in five of their last eight home matches and Liverpool are 8/13 to bounce back from Wednesday's disappointment with a win.

Liverpool to win and Over 2.5 goals is 23/20 while the same outcome and Over 3.5 goals is 23/10.

Man City vs Burnley, 3pm

Manchester City have 12 points after eight Premier League matches (W3, D3, L2) – their lowest total after eight rounds since 2008/09.

They also failed to score for the first time this season in last weekend's 2-0 loss to Spurs, and have scored just ten goals across eight matches – their lowest tally since 2006/07!

Lucky for Pep he's facing his favourite opponents today.

City have won five straight home head to heads against Burnley – handsomely – covering a -2.5 handicap each time. They are 21/20 to overcome a -2 goals handicap with thepools.com

And while Burnley got their first league win of the season last time out (W1, D2, L5), holding on to a 1-0 lead after an eighth-minute goal, it was only their fourth league goal of the season (0.5 on average per match) and their first in five Premier League matches! Unsurprisingly, their 2.0 total goals on average from eight matches is the lowest in the league.

On their travels, Burnley are without a win in four Premier League matches this season (D2, L2). A growing resilience has been emerging, however, with two straight goalless draws.

City to win to nil is a parsimonious 8/13 and a City win and Under 2.5 goals has to be worth considering at 5/2 .

Though Burnley have not travelled well so far, they’ve been awarded just 1.33 yellow cards on average across their last nine Premier League matches on the road. Under 2.5 bookings is 19/20 .

Everton vs Leeds, 5.30pm

As usual the goals flowed in an Everton match last week – just the five and a missed penalty as the Toffees won at Craven Cottage.

Their last four Premier League victories have all seen both teams score, witnessed at least three first-half goals, and averaged 5.25 goals in total!

However they have now conceded two or more goals in six straight Premier League matches for the first time since October 2008 – and first choice full-backs Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne are both out injured tonight.

The high-scoring trend continues at home, where Everton are the only team to have had all their Premier League home matches feature at least four goals.

Visiting Leeds have slumped in the table after just one win across their last six matches (D2, L3), but stopped the deluge of conceded goals with a goalless draw in the last round – after conceding four goals in back-to-back matches. Indeed, ahead of this round, only two teams have conceded more goals than Leeds' 17 so far (1.89 on average per match).

So …. Over 3.5 goals is 6/4 with thepools.com and Over 4.5 10/3 .

Away from home, Leeds have won two and lost two PL matches, but both defeats saw them concede four times.

The Premier League's top scorer ahead of this round (ten goals), Dominic Calwert-Lewin continued his scintillating form with a brace last weekend. He is 7/2 to open the scoring and 21/20 to score at anytime . After last week's sighter following his three-match ban Richarlison at 5/1 first goal and 6/4 anytime is also worth considering.

Meanwhile Leeds’ hitman Patrick Bamford has scored six of his seven Premier League goals across their four away matches and is 5/1 first goal and 6/4 anytime .

West Brom vs Sheff Utd, 8pm

The Premier League's last two winless teams fill the Saturday night slot – and with only two of the last 13 competitive heads to heads ending drawn someone could finally be celebrating (although not with a beer. West Bromwich was in tier 3 after Thursday's announcement).

Five games and 603 minutes of play have elapsed since a West Brom player last scored, while no side has scored fewer goals than the blunt Blades' four so far.

Unsurprisingly Under 2.5 goals is just 6/10 – while the 0-0 and 1-1 draws are 7/1 and 5/1 respectively.

If you're one of life's optimists looking for a first scorer bet, Republic of Ireland teammates Callum Robinson (WBA) and David McGoldrick (SHU) are their sides' top scorers with a paltry two goals apiece.

Both of Robinson’s came at home, whilst McGoldrick’s came away. Robinson is 6/1 to open the scoring and McGoldrick is 13/2 .
