Premier League Treble: Eagles to show the Magpies who's boss

Crystal Palace manager - Roy Hodgson
Hodgson would have been delighted with the win and the clean sheet last weekend

It was an 11/1 winner for Paul Robinson's Premier League Treble last week and this week he retains faith in two of his three picks. Here are his selections:

- Back Bournemouth @ 31/20
- Back Crystal Palace @ 11/10
- Back Leicester @ 4/6

The Acca pays approximately 8/1

Cherries are ripe for the picking

Bet 1: Back Bournemouth @ 31/20 - KO 15:00 BST

Bournemouth have made a superb start to the season and they put in arguably their best display to date in their 4-2 win over Leicester last week. They simply blew the Foxes away to lead 4-0, and only two late consolations for the visitors made the scoreline somewhat respectable.

Ryan Fraser bagged a brace, with Josh King and Adam Smith adding further goals, while Callum Wilson also caused plenty of problems without finding the net.

Eddie Howe's men are clearly better at home than they are away, but they have already won at the London Stadium this season, and they finished last year with just five defeats from their final 15 away outings.

A trip to Turf Moor isn't as daunting as it was last season as Sean Dyche's side have been poor this term - and even the manager has said that they can no longer use their Europa League campaign as an excuse.

The Clarets were beaten 1-0 at Wolves last Sunday, but the hosts were value for much more than that, and Burnley have already lost both of their home games this year - a 3-1 defeat to Watford and a 2-0 loss to Manchester United.

It should also be remembered that they finished last season in miserable form too.

Dan Fitch is predicting goals in this one.

First home win of the season for Palace

Bet 2: Back Crystal Palace @ 11/10 - KO 15:00 BST

The Eagles were soaring again last weekend as Wilfred Zaha returned to the team to lead them to a 1-0 victory at Huddersfield. It was a vital three points for Palace, who had suffered a trio of defeats since their opening day win at Fulham.

A return to Selhurst Park should hopefully only inspire them as they bid to record their first home win of the season. Two matches in front of their own fans have seen them fail to take a single point, but one of those was against Liverpool, and in the other they missed plenty of chances.

The visitors this afternoon are Newcastle, with the Magpies in big trouble following a one point haul from a possible 15. Their only positive result was a 0-0 draw at the newly promoted, Cardiff, and they even exited the EFL Cup at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

Things clearly aren't right at the club, and Rafa Benitez is making some strange team selections. Whether it's a ploy to get more funds in the transfer window or simply to make a point to the board and the fans, the danger is that they will be cast adrift before they have a chance to change anything.

Foxes to put Bournemouth mauling behind them

Bet 3: Back Leicester @ 4/6 - KO 15:00 BST

Leicester need to put a shocking performance at the Vitality behind them, but the good news for Claude Puel is that they have the chance to make amends against a Huddersfield team who are struggling to find the net.

The Terriers were goalless for the fourth time in six outings in all competitions this season, and in the other two games they only scored once.

The Foxes defence isn't exactly the most solid at the moment, but Wes Morgan is suspended for this match, so a reshuffle will be required - which can't be a bad thing.

One thing that Puel's side do have in their favour is that they are still scoring goals, so even if they aren't back to their best, they still should be able to out-gun, Huddersfield.

Jamie Pacheco is showing a profit for the season in his match previews and he is also tipping a Leicester victory.
