This week's edition of the Premier League Treble is a 13/1 shot that starts at Anfield. Here are Paul Robinson's selections:

- Back Liverpool @ 40/85
- Back Aston Villa @ 9/5
- Back The Draw in Watford v Sheffield United @ 12/5

The Acca pays approximately 13/1

Reds to make it 17 in a row

Bet 1: Back Liverpool @ 40/85

Leicester City have made a strong start to their season, but away from home they haven't been too great. Chelsea let them back in the game at Stamford Bridge when they drew their 1-1. They then scraped a 2-1 win at Bramall Lane, before losing 1-0 at Old Trafford.

The Foxes should still be in for a successful campaign, and Brendan Rodgers will be highly motivated to get a result back at Anfield, but this Liverpool side are on another level.

Jurgen Klopp's men have won 16 straight Premier League matches, and at home last season they won 17 and drew two. Admittedly, one of those draws did come against Leicester, but the Reds look even better this year.

Dave Tindall has covered this game in more detail here.

Villa's luck to turn

Bet 2: Back Aston Villa @ 9/5

Aston Villa have let me down a couple of times this season, but I feel that they have been unlucky, as opposed to poor. VAR hasn't been kind to them, and they appear to be conceding goals at an above average rate to chances conceded.

Hopefully that will straighten itself out at Carrow Road this afternoon, enabling Dean Smith's side to put three consecutive away defeats behind them.

They performed well in all three of those games though, and two of them were at the North London clubs. The Canaries are nowhere near that level, and the Man City win aside, Daniel Farke's tea have looked pretty poor lately.

Alan Dudman thinks that the points will be shared at Carrow Road.

All square at Vicarage Road

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Watford v Sheffield United @ 12/5

The Blades are yet to be beaten on their travels since their promotion back to the top flight, as all of their defeats have come at Bramall Lane.

Chris Wilder's men have earned draws at Bournemouth and Chelsea, before winning at Goodison Park, most recently. The Hornets are yet to win this season - losing five of their seven fixtures - and Quique Sánchez Flores' team didn't put up much of a fight at Wolves last week.

I wouldn't quite write off Watford yet though, and they did play very well in the second half against Arsenal in their last home league match. I expect a tight game with the visitors nicking another point.
