Premier League opening day stats – Saints and Toffees to be avoided?

Who to back on the opening weekend of the Premier League season? Well maybe some opening day stats will help push you in the right direction.

The action all kicks off with Manchester United v Spurs at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime, and the Red Devils are worth backing as they have won 61% of their opening day fixtures in the history of the Premier League.

United are 11/17 at Coral to win their opener this time around. Spurs have just a 35% win rate in EPL season openers and at Coral you can get a £20 Free Bet Offer on United to beat Spurs.

Chelsea are the only Premier League with a better opening day strike rate than the Red Devils. Chelsea have won 65% of their openers, and Jose Mourinho has won all six of his opening day matches with the Blues.

Chelsea are 4/11 to beat Swansea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening. Arsenal have a 57% win record from their opening matches, and they host West Ham on Sunday who have a 48% win record from their season openers, which puts them sixth in the all time table.

However, the Gunners are heavy favourites at 3/10 to smash the unconvincing Hammers at the Emirates. Watford, back up in the top flight, also have a solid 48% win rate on the opening day of the season in the Premier League and they are 9/2 to take a win at Everton, who have won just 26% of their first matches.

Bringing up the rear is Southampton who have only won 13% of their opening Premier League fixtures. They are 17/10 to win at Newcastle on Sunday.
