Premier League Betting Tips 21/22 September

I was 3/4 last weekend with only Chelsea letting me down. Manchester United and Arsenal were comfortable winners as predicted whilst Sunday's tip of under 2.5 goals between Southampton and West Ham was more than safe at 0-0. Premier League sides performed well in Europe midweek with 5 of the 6 teams winning. Manchester United (4-2), Manchester City (3-0), Swansea City (3-0) and Tottenham Hotspur (3-0) all won by at least 2 goals too. Chelsea were shocked at home, losing 2-1 to Swiss Super League side FC Basel. Returning to domestic action, Chelsea host Fulham in Saturday evening's televised game with José Mourinho looking to break this two-game losing streak. To start the weekend, Norwich City host Aston Villa kickoff the action with both sides recording only 1 win in their opening four games. Returning from Marseille midweek, Arsenal host Stoke City looking to extend their 6-game winning streak in all competitions. North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur had a home game against weak opposition Thursday and return to domestic action at Cardiff on Sunday. The most-anticipated game of the weekend sees Manuel Pellegrini and David Moyes participate in their first Manchester derby as the blue half of Manchester hosts the defending Premier League champions. If you're looking to have a punt on the Premier League this weekend, here are a few tips:
