Paul Robinson has cast his eye over this afternoon's Premier League fixtures and put together a very tasty 23/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back Burnley @ 5/2
- Back Newcastle @ 11/10
- Back Everton @ 23/10

The Treble pays approximately 24.26 (23/1)

Bet 1: Burnley @ 5/2

The Clarets might not have won any of their last three games but they are still a fairly big price to beat Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium.

Sean Dyche's men were desperately unlucky not to win at Old Trafford on Boxing Day as they led 2-0 before conceding two second half goals - the equaliser in injury time.

They had already won at Chelsea, Everton, Southampton and Bournemouth this season, while also drawing at Spurs, Liverpool and Brighton.

Huddersfield are climbing the table thanks to a run of just one defeat in five but they have had a much easier fixture list than today's opponents.

David Wagner's side have won just one of their last four in front of their own fans - two defeats - and while this is sure to be a tight game, I fancy the visitors to edge it.


Bet 2: Newcastle @ 11/10

The Magpies were pretty abject in their display against Manchester City on Wednesday evening but they avoided a morale draining thrashing and Rafa Benitez will be aiming to put a good amount of points on the board over the course of their next three fixtures.

This is the first of three very winnable matches and I would hope that Benitez would adopt more attacking tactics than he did against City. Prior to that they had looked adventurous going forward in their 3-2 win at the London Stadium and that could be the turning point in their season.

Brighton were beaten 2-0 at Chelsea on Tuesday but that can be forgiven. Prior to that they had taken four points from two home matches, but it's their away form that worries me here.

On the road it's four straight defeats to nil and they have lost seven of their 10 on their travels this term. It will be their home form that determines their success this season, as they just don't have enough firepower to score enough goals away from the AMEX.


Bet 3: Everton @ 23/10

I have covered this match in more detail here but the general gist is that Everton's dismal away record this season should be overlooked as their sole away win has come under Sam Allardyce and they are yet to be defeated with him in charge.

Bournemouth on the other hand are in the midst of a slump and have lost 50% of their home matches - conceding plenty of goals in the process.
