English soccer fans are well aware that Manchester United vs Liverpool is the big game on the Premier League schedule this weekend, but we’ve got six matches on Saturday to get to before Sunday’s big one at Old Trafford.

First up is Chelsea, hoping to extend their lead at the top of the standings against Norwich, who are bottom of the league and still without a win.

We have a bet from Chelsea as part of a 4-game parlay to hopefully see you successfully through Saturday’s slate and it pays at +1123 odds with FanDuel Sportsbook, which is more than 11/1.

Be sure to check out the rest of our Premier League soccer predictions and remember to gamble responsibly.

Chelsea vs Norwich under 2.5 goals (+125)

Everton ML over Watford (-160)

Southampton ML over Burnley (-105)

Brighton +1.5 over Manchester City (-140)

Parlay odds:  +1123

Chelsea vs Norwich under 2.5 goals (+125), 7:30am ET

There are upsets and there are major upsets, but not many bettors will be expecting anything other than a routine Chelsea win when #1 plays #20 at Stamford Bridge.

There isn’t much mileage in Chelsea’s odds but this might not be the hammering that many football fans had envisaged a few days back. The reason? The team’s big-money forwards, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, picked up knocks during a Champions League tie against Malmo and suddenly Chelsea looks light at the top end of the field.

Norwich’s last two games have ended 0-0 so coach Daniel Farke appears to be fixing his defense, which will be well-manned in the early game.

Everton ML over Watford (-160), 10am ET

Wow, Watford was bad last week. Getting beat by Liverpool is one thing, but getting hammered 5-0 and not even trying was pretty much unforgivable — hardly the ideal start for coach Claudio Ranieri on his first game back in England’s Premier League.

Ranieri has to pick his players up for another tricky test, this time away at Liverpool’s neighbors Everton, who are also going well this season.

You wouldn’t imagine that Everton has the firepower to overwhelm Watford as Liverpool did – their top goalscorer, England star Dominic Calvert-Lewin, has an injury and misses the game – but coach Rafael Benitez’s team is still a high-class unit which has won four of its last five home games.

Southampton ML over Burnley (-105), 10am ET

Saints, as Southampton is known, had to wait until round eight to pick up its first win, beating Leeds 1-0 last weekend. Don’t be fooled by the scoreline though – it says 1-0 but it could have been, maybe should have been, five or six.

Southampton was excellent and, in fairness, has been excellent this season. Ties with Manchester United, West Ham and Manchester City are good results and they were heading for a similar result at Chelsea recently before James Ward-Prowse was sent off, and that changed the game.

But this is a good team that is hoping it’s turned a corner. Burnley, on the other hand, is seriously floundering.

Coach Dyche’s side has yet to win – one of three teams in the Premier League still without a three-pointer – and once again, they’re struggling to score goals having hit the net just five times so far.

Brighton +1.5 over Manchester City (-140), 12:30pm ET

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola is a major-league admirer of his Brighton opposite number, Graham Potter, and it’s easy to see why.

Potter’s Brighton is a neat and tidy footballing team, who defend well, break with speed – they just don’t score many goals and it’s their constant undoing.

They start this weekend fourth in the table just one place behind Manchester City – yet they have scored half as many goals.

Last season Brighton beat City at home 3-2 and only lost 1-0 in the road fixture. They don’t get beaten heavily by anyone and can keep this game close as well.
