GOT to start in the Premier League with Blackburn v West Brom.

Rovers still haven't kept a clean sheet since April but won their last home game 4-2 against Swansea.

Steve Kean's men conceded two goals in the last six minutes at Sunderland last week when it looked like they might get that elusive clean sheet.

They'll need a good result against West Brom to keep Kean in the job and could well get it. But a clean sheet? Unlikely.

West Brom's last four have featured both scoring and they've conceded to the likes of Wigan, QPR and Bolton during that spell.

Next I'm taking a chance on West Ham v Barnsley. The Hammers are no bigger than 8-13 to win the match but it's one I'll be steering clear of after two defeats on the bounce.

I expect them to score however against a Barnsley outfit whose last four games have produced 21 goals. Last week they went down 5-3 at home to Ipswich after leading 2-0 and won 4-3 at Peterborough a couple of weeks ago after throwing away a 3-0 advantage.

Talking of Peterborough it's difficult to ignore their credentials at home to Coventry. Their last six have featured both teams to score at an average of four a game.Visitors Coventry are suffering without a win in six but have netted in five of them.

I expect Peterborough to pick up a win but their chances of a clean sheet are pretty slim.

If you're going to keep a clean sheet it could come against Everton but I'm not sure if Norwich are going to manage one.

Paul Lambert's men, like Blackburn, have conceded in every game this season but unlike Rovers have been picking up wins.

They head for Goodison on the back of a four-goal show against Everton who have bagged just seven at home in seven games.

I'm sure Norwich will play an open game so both teams should score.

Complete the fivefold with Blackpool v Watford. Both sides have been playing well and scoring goals. Last week Blackpool held Southampton 2-2 to end the leaders' 100 per cent home record.

Watford have lost one in eight and netted five in their last three, including a 2-1 away win at Ipswich.
