Liverpool currently sits top of the table with a superior goal difference. Jota and Mane scored a goal in each half to convincingly beat Burnley at Anfield with Klopp using a 4-3-3 formation against the Clarets. The return of van Dijk into the starting line-up boosted the team as they have kept 2 clean sheets so far.
Chelsea are playing their best football in years, thanks to their European glory last season. Tuchel rejuvenated the team, getting the best out of Pulisic, Mount and Werner. Lukaku’s signing gave way for Tammy Abraham’s move to AS Roma. Last weekends demolition of Arsenal saw Lukaku return to the Premier League with a goal on his debut. He is looking in great form and will be hoping to continue his goal tally against Liverpool. As for the betting in this match, the bookies are undecided and predict a very tight game with no margin in the odds for either team.

La Liga: Atletico Madrid vs Villareal
Atletico Madrid has a chance to go to the La Liga summit if they beat Villareal this weekend. Rodrigo signing from Udinese strengthened the midfield and their grip on the game. As Diego Simeone begins his 10th season in charge, Atletico are looking to keep hold of the title in what promises to be a fine match against last season’s Europa Cup winners.
Villareal has had a slow start to the 21/22 season with 2 draws. Danjuma and Foyth arrived from the Premier League to strengthen the left-wing and central defence, respectively. As they travel to Wanda Metropolitano in search of their first win, Unai Emery will be hoping to get some points on the board.

Bundesliga: Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig
This weekend in the Bundesliga see’s two of last seasons best performing teams come head to head at the Volkswagen Arena.
Wolfsburg began their 2021/22 season on a high, beating Hertha and VfL in their first 2 games. The 4-2-3-1 allows Maximilian Phillip to play behind Weghorst, with Baku and Steffen on the wings. The formation gives Wolfsburg a formidable attack. Late goals from Baku and Nmecha gave Van Bommel his first away win this season.
RB Leipzig came back after their matchday 1 loss to beat VfB Stuttgart 4-0. Josko Gvardiol from Dinamo Zagreb, Angelino from Manchester City and Benjamin Henrichs strengthened their defence. Szoboszlai scored a brace to give Jesse Marsch his first win of the season. Marsch might retain the 4-2-3-1 line-up with Andre Silva leading the attack. The bookmakers fancy Leipzig to beat Wolfsburg even though they are playing away from home.
Ligue 1: Reims vs PSG
Reims started the 2021/22 season on a flat foot, collecting 2 points from their first 2 games. They promoted 6 players from their academy and signed brought in Gravillon from Inter on loan. Oscar Gracia hopes to bring in a fresh approach and improve their 14th place finish in the 2020/21 season.
Despite a perfect start of the season, PSG fans are eager to see Messi’s debut. Pochettino prefers playing an exciting 4-1-2-1-2, which might suit Messi’s playmaking role. Matchday 4 will be PSG’s to lose. PSG are absolute favourites to walk away with the points in the bookie’s eyes, some giving odds as low as 1.17. An outside bet on Reims might be worth a punt.
