5 Premier League Booking Tips to Watch This Weekend - Gameweek 2

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace: Luka Milivojević to be carded

Manchester United’s season commences once again on Saturday when they host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

Both Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Roy Hodgson will be hoping new signings Donny Van De Beek and Eberechi Eze will breathe fresh optimism into their respective campaigns. While Palace managed to snatch a late winner in this fixture at the beginning of last season, courtesy of Andre Ayew, the return fixture saw Manchester United walk away with a comfortable 2-0 victory behind closed doors.

With both sides desperate to get off to the perfect start, this will certainly be an intriguing tie that neither side will back down from. Crystal Palace will be looking to take the sting out of Manchester United’s new-look midfield, which is why our tip for this match is for Milivojević to be booked.

The ever-reliable Palace captain was booked more than any other player last season, having been shown a yellow card on 12 occasions - click here to have this bet in your bet slip at 15/8.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester City: Ruben Neves and Rodri to be carded

Nuno Espirito Santo celebrated a contract extension with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Sheffield United on matchday one, with both goals coming within the first six minutes.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City kick off their campaign withthe hope of remaining more competitive than last season in the race for the title. However, Wolves have an exceptional record against the top six, and in particular Manchester City, having completed a league double over them last season for the first time since 1999 when both sides were in the old First Division.

This has consistently been a fantastic tie to watch since Wolves gained promotion to the Premier League back in 2018, and certainly one that has been decided in the middle of the park.

We’ve gone for Ruben Neves to be carded, season after the midfielder accumulated eight yellow cards last season, as City come with the likelihood of dominating the midfield quite high.

Leeds vs Fulham - +50 Booking Points

Both newly promoted Leeds and Fulham slumped to defeats on the opening day, but in very contrasting circumstances. Marcelo Bielsa’s side very nearly walked away with a point in a highly entertaining 4-3 defeat against champions Liverpool, while Scott Parker’s Fulham endured a tough return to the Premier League, conceding three goals at home to Arsenal.

If we rewind to last season and take a look at their clashes in the Championship, on both occasions the match resulted in 65 and 70 booking points respectively. Although both teams may be slightly more reserved due to the unfamiliarity of the Premier League, we’re quietly confident there will be +50 booking points on Saturday afternoon.

Arsenal vs West Ham: Arsenal +30 Booking Points

There is a growing sense of optimism surrounding Mikel Arteta and Arsenal off the back of their FA Cup and Community Shield double. As well as this, an impressive 3-0 victory over Fulham on the opening day may be a sign of things to come as the Spaniard’s vision starts to take shape over the course of the season.

However, for David Moyes and West Ham, their 2-0 defeat at home to Newcastle revealed very few redeeming features in a team that seems to be lacking in inspiration. This, coupled with public criticism of the board from captain Mark Noble over their handling of transfers, has left a sour taste even before the season has really had a chance to get going.

Nevertheless, it is sure to be a fiercely contested match, and our tip is for Arsenal to accumulate +30 booking points. No team received more cards than the Gunners last season, with the eventual total standing at 86 yellow cards and five red cards.

Liverpool vs Chelsea: +50 Booking Points Each Team

Two teams with undeniable flair and ability, but whose defences have shown vulnerability as of late. Liverpool’s opener against Leeds was a neutral’s dream, with the 4-3 scoreline reflecting a highly entertaining affair but with several question marks surrounding Liverpool’s defensive security, most notably an uncharacteristic error from Virgil van Dijk.

As for Chelsea and their newly bolstered squad, it remains to be seen whether their £200m spending spree will allow them to compete for titles this season. However, new recruits Timo Werner and Kai Havertz looked to be suitable additions to an already attack-minded squad as they cruised to a 3-1 victory over Brighton in their opening fixture.

Although Liverpool were the most disciplined side in the league last year, we can see both sides struggling to keep tabs on each others’ attacking lines, with Werner, Salah and Mane boasting exceptional speed that may lead to cautions.

Therefore, we’ve gone for +50 booking points in this fixture and you can claim this here.
