IT'S good to see the return of the Premier League but on paper there's only one game I'd pay to watch.

Much has been said about English football and the billions paid in TV deals but there is often a huge discrepancy between the teams.

For example a fourfold on Liverpool, Everton, Man City and Man United returns just 3-1 at Unibet with the quartet short-priced favourites. All should win but it's not the most appealing fourfold.

One match I'm looking forward to is the 5.30pm kick-off between Spurs and Chelsea.

The Blues remain unbeaten under Maurizio Sarri and I can see them getting a result at Wembley against a side not firing on all cylinders and who are the lowest scorers in the top six.

Against the big guns this season Chelsea have drawn with Man City and Liverpool and beaten Arsenal while Spurs have lost to City and Pool.

Midfield has been a concern for Spurs and rival Eden Hazard will be a key man having netted seven times this season for Chelsea and is 11-2 at Paddy Power to score first and 8-5 at anytime.

Harry Kane fired England into the Nations League at the same stadium and is 13-11 at Unibet to strike another Wembley goal.

Not much between the sides but best bet could be Chelsea draw no bet at 10-11 with Betfred.

One problem with international breaks is the number of players away from big clubs and some check in with knocks, others drained and some even elated (Andy Robertson, Ryan Fraser, Steven Fletcher, etc).

The likes of Man City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp will do a roll call before naming their line-ups.

Liverpool have had trouble at Watford but should notch a win that keeps them in the title race. They are short at 4-7 with Betfred and double with City at West Ham and it pays evens with Betway. Could be one for big hitters.

Everton look pretty safe at 4-9 with Ladbrokes at home to Cardiff side with two points on the road and take a chance on Richarlison to score first at 4-1 with Paddy Power. He netted Brazil's only goal in their win against Cameroon at MK Dons in midweek and should be confident.

Man United have been inconsistent and could be a concern but Crystal Palace have lost five out of six on the road and not scored in five visits to Old Trafford. With home advantage United should win at a best 2-5 with Ladbrokes.

In the Championship back Leeds to bounce back from a mauling at West Brom to beat Bristol City at home. Toiling City have never taken a point at Elland Road and the home win pays 4-6 at bet365.

Middlesbrough travel to Brentford in the late kick-off and Tony Pullis's men are one of the toughest to beat. It isn't pretty but it's effective and Boro should extend their unbeaten run against the Bees. Take the away side draw no bet at 23-20 with McBookie.

In League One best bets could be Barnsley at 22-25 with Marathonbet at home to Doncaster.

Bury at evens with bet365 at Cambridge and Northampton at 8-11 with Betfred at home to Grimsby are best bets in League Two.

    Just some Leeds team news. There will be no pontus jansson at centre back and our defence is pretty sparce already with long term injuries to ayling and beradi so will be a makeshift back line.

    We also have to field an u23 keeper due to Blackman breaking his leg and going back to Chelsea and peacock farrel getting injured.
