Premier League predictions for September 28. Bettingpro writers Ben Darvill and Leigh Copson knocked it out of the park last week with a couple of winning tips, but what are their favourite bets from this weekend’s matches in England’s top flight? Read on to get our free Premier League predictions and betting tips.

Ben’s Bet: Aston Villa vs Burnley (Saturday, 15:00 BST)

Aston Villa were left stunned by Arsenal's comeback on Sunday as the Gunners were able to bounce back from going down to 10-men by clinching a thrilling 3-2 win courtesy of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang free-kick that flew past Tom Heaton in the Villa goal. The winner for the London side was a real kick in the teeth for Villa who really held their own at the Emirates with 41% of the ball and nine shots on target to Arsenal's six. Ultimately though they were stung by the quality that the Gunners have in their ranks, but they will target a return to Vila Park as a real chance to pick up three invaluable points. Burnley meanwhile boast an impressive two-game unbeaten run after a 1-1 draw at Brighton was followed by a 2-0 win over Norwich at Turf Moor. Chris Wood scored a brace within 14 first-half minutes as Norwich were beaten to nil. Burnley now boast an impressive eight point haul from their opening six games, the same as Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham. Villa meanwhile sit in 18th with four points, but they will note that some tough games to start the season means they are not in a terminal position at this stage. 
This one will likely be a huge game for the two as neither will want to give a relegation rival a chance to pick up three points. We feel that this one will see the two drawing blood in the game, with neither of the two defences really inspiring any confidence. This means we are backing the two teams to get on the scoresheet and give both sets of fans something to cheer, however, we are not overly confident of Villa's ability to win games. There capitulation against Arsenal in a game they could have won will play havoc on them mentally going forward, while Burnley's impressive record of winning five consecutive Premier League games against newly-promoted sides is something that draws us to the away side, who offer better value in the match winner market. With all of this in mind, we are backing the away team to pick up another huge win, and ruin Tom Heaton's battle with his former-team. 

Leigh’s Bet: Everton v Manchester City (Saturday 17:30 BST)

Manchester City’s response to their shock defeat to Norwich City was an emphatic one. They bounced back with a 3-0 victory away to Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday One of the Champions League group stage and then topped that performance, and result, in a sensational Premier League mauling of Watford a few days later. Showing no signs of being jaded from the long midweek trip, City made a blistering start against the shell-shocked Hornets as David Silva scored inside the opening minute, and if this had been a boxing match the referee would have waved it off on the 18-minute mark. At that point the home side were five goals to the good and well on course to smash the Premier League record for the largest ever win, and although they ultimately fell a goal shy of equalling Manchester United’s 9-0 rout of Ipswich Town in 1995, the 8-0 victory sent shockwaves through the top flight. Can they now follow that up with three more points at Everton on Saturday evening? While City go into the game on a massive high, the Toffees are on a real downer thanks to an underwhelming start to the season that has seen them collect just seven points from their first six games. Pressure is piling up on manager Marco Silva after his side followed up a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Bournemouth with a miserable 2-0 home loss at the hands of newly-promoted Sheffield United last weekend, and a positive result against the reigning champions would go some way to easing a little bit of that pressure on the Portuguese.

But not even the most ardent of Everton fans will like their team’s chances of getting anything here. Yes, City have already shown that they are not invincible by losing away to top-flight newcomers Norwich, but that was merely one of those freak results that occur now and again, and in fairness to the Canaries they had won their opening home game and gone narrowly close to getting something from the visit of Chelsea too. Everton, on the other hand, have now lost three of their last Premier League fixtures and they have hardly faced top calibre opposition in that time, losing to top-flight new-boys Aston Villa and Sheffield United. They did manage a decent win over Wolves at the start of the month, but not even that gives me the confidence that they can get something against a Manchester City side who will be determined to keep the heat on league leaders Liverpool. City have won their last three meetings with Everton by at least two goals and I believe we will see more of the same here. But instead of simply backing them to overcome a handicap I am going to really put my faith in the visitors using bet365’s Bet Builder feature. Over 2 Total Goals screams ‘banker’ for this fixture – it has been a winning bet on four of the last five meetings between these two clubs and it has been a winner on all seven of City’s competitive fixtures so far, making it a tempting selection here. The final ‘leg’ of this bet involves top goalscorer Sergio Aguero, who took his Premier League tally to eight goals in six games with his strike against Watford. The odds on him netting anytime are tempting, but I am looking for a big return so I am backing him to break the deadlock here. In the three away games City have played in the league so far, Aguero netted the opener at Bournemouth and got his team’s first goal at Norwich.
