The Premier League is back and so is Paul Robinson's Premier League Treble. This week it pays 21/1. Here are his selections:

- Back The Draw in Everton v Tottenham @ 5/2
- Back The Draw in Leicester v Chelsea @ 14/5
- Back Southampton @ 4/6

The Treble pays approximately 22.17 (21/1)

Bet 1: The Draw in Everton v Tottenham @ 5/2

This is a proper Premier League fixture as two of the top flight stalwarts meet at Goodison Park. The visitors are the favourites to win but last year's runners-up haven't made the strongest start to the campaign and I can see this one ending all square.

The move to Wembley was always going to affect Spurs' chances this season as they were so strong at White Hart Lane. They have played at their temporary home twice already and picked up just the one point.

Mauricio Pochettino will probably be glad that his team are away from home this afternoon, and they did win their only away game to date - a 2-0 success at Newcastle.

This will be a much sterner test however and although Everton have only taken four points themselves so far this term, they have a fabulous record at Goodison Park under Ronald Koeman.

Wayne Rooney has a big point to prove following his off field woes and I expect an inspired performance from him here. Overall the draw has to the value bet, with 1-1 being the most likely scoreline.

Bet 2: The Draw in Leicester v Chelsea @ 14/5

Another draw now, this time from the King Power as the champions travel to the club they dethroned last year.

Leicester have already been beaten twice this season but they both came at Arsenal and Manchester United. Sandwiched in-between those defeats they eased past Brighton in front of their own fans and Craig Shakespeare has been beaten just once at the KP.

Chelsea have six points from their opening three fixtures and the surprise is that they lost at home to Burnley, before going on to beat both Spurs and Everton.

Eden Hazard is fit again, but he's still not match-fit and until he's back firing on all cylinders, I have my doubts about their ability to win games like this.

Bet 3: Southampton @ 4/6

To St Mary's now for a fixture between the unbeaten Southampton and the unbeaten Watford. I wouldn't usually expect to write that sentence in September but they have both won one and drawn two of their opening three games.

The Saints should be strong enough to take all three points today as they have a strong chance of keeping a clean sheet against the Hornets. Obviously scoring goals is their Achilles heel, but they did net three against West Ham on their last appearance on this ground in the league.

Watford were fortunate not to lose to Liverpool on the opening day as two of their three goals scored were dubious. Nevertheless, they hung in there well and followed it up with a good 2-0 success at Bournemouth the week after.

A 0-0 draw at home Brighton a fortnight ago isn't the best result in the world, but they did have to play the majority of the match with 10 men, so overall a point is decent enough.

I just can't see them getting anything from the South Coast today though as their record on their travels was abysmal last year and this season's victory at Bournemouth will surely be the exception and not the rule.
