It's three home wins for Paul Robinson's Premier League Treble this afternoon and they begin at Goodison Park. Here are his selections:

- Back Everton @ 5/4
- Back West Ham @ 6/4
- Back Stoke @ 13/10

The Treble pays approximately 12.94 (12/1)

Bet 1: Everton @ 5/4

The Toffees have a point to prove following their miserable performance at Arsenal last Saturday. They were thrashed 5-1 and their early capitulation had Sam Allardyce seething.

The players will be tasked with restoring their reputations this afternoon and they can at least draw on the fact that they beat Leicester on their last outing in front of their own fans. It's five wins in eight at home for Everton and their sole defeat was against Manchester United.

The visitors are Crystal Palace and while they are proving hard to beat, they are missing some key players - especially in the final third. Both Zaha and Loftus-Cheek are out through injury and Christian Benteke is hardly someone who a manager can rely upon to produce.

Roy Hodgson's men have lost just one of seven on their travels as their climb up the table continues, however I just feel that the hosts will prove too strong on this occasion.

Bet 2: West Ham @ 6/4

I keep tipping West Ham and they keep on letting me down, but I'm going to give David Moyes' side one last shot - especially as they are at a price of 6/4.

The good news for The Hammers is that both Antonio and Arnautovic returned to training this week and although they probably won't start today, they should at least feature from the bench.

West Ham have actually lost just one of their last seven at the London Stadium in the league, but they are drawing too many matches - something which they need to address.

Their opponents are Watford and they come into the game on a high following their 4-1 win over Chelsea on Monday. They were aided by having a man advantage from an early stage though and the score was actually 1-1 until the 84th minute.

Away from Vicarage Road it's one point from a possible 18 of late and while Javi Gracia has made a good start since he was appointed, he too has a lot of players missing through injury.
