Two games into the Premier League season and it’s Brighton who are the early pacesetters after comfortable wins over Luton and Wolves.
The Seagulls are one of three sides with two wins out of two so far, the others being last season’s title rivals Man City and Arsenal.
Who will still have a 100% record by the end of MW3? Brighton host West Ham, City visit Sheffield United and Arsenal face Fulham.

To get you ready, let’s take a look at three of the standout Premier League fixtures…
Chelsea v Luton
Friday, 25th August @ 20:00
Luton’s introduction to Premier League life was a tough one as Brighton cruised past them 4-1 on the opening weekend. It doesn’t get any easy for the Hatters, though, as they travel to Chelsea on Friday night.
Rob Edwards’ side didn’t play in MW2 as their Kenilworth Road ground undergoes improvement work, so he’s had plenty of time to prepare them for a trip to Stamford Bridge.
Will they find a way to breach the Chelsea defence? It’s EVS that both teams score in the match. The Blues haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League games.
Raheem Sterling could be one to watch. Since the start of the 2020/21 season, Sterling has scored 11 goals in 15 games against newly-promoted sides. Sterling is 7/2 to open his account for season with the opening goal against Luton.
Everton v Wolves
Saturday, 26th August @ 15:00
We may only be two games in, but Everton v Wolves is already being touted as a ‘six-pointer’ by some after both sides made losing starts to the season.
After defeat to Fulham on the opening weekend, Everton were beaten 4-0 by Aston Villa last Sunday. The Toffees are bottom on goal difference, with only one goal separating them and Wolves. Everton are 13/10 to claim all three points, while an away win is 21/10 and the draw is 23/10.
Last season saw stoppage-time goals at the end of both games. They earned Wolves three points at Goodison and Everton a point at Molineux. It’s 5/2 there’s a goal in Saturday’s match between the 86th minute and full time.
Newcastle v Liverpool
St James’ Park
Sunday, 27th August @ 16:30
Fancy Newcastle to bounce back from their defeat to Man City and end Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the season? The Magpies are 23/20 to win at St James’ Park on Sunday.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League encounters with Newcastle (W9 D4) and took six points off the Magpies last season. The Reds scored twice in both matches last term, they’re 5/2 to net exactly twice this weekend.
Alexander Isak scored a consolation at Anfield last August. He started this season on fire with a double against Aston Villa at St James’ on the opening weekend. We’ll pay out at 2/1 if Isak adds to his tally with the first or last goal of the game.
