Premier League Treble: Fulham to be outfoxed in the Midlands

Leicester City striker - Jamie Vardy
Can Jamie Vardy get back amongst the goals?

It's two home wins and an away one for Paul Robinson's Premier League Treble this week and it begins at the King Power. Here are his selections:

- Back Leicester @ 6/10
- Back Newcastle @ 9/5
- Back Bournemouth @ 13/10

The Acca pays approximately 9/1

Foxes fans to get a glimpse into the future

Bet 1: Back Leicester @ 6/10 - KO 15:00 GMT

The Brendan Rodgers era at Leicester didn't exactly start with a bang as the Foxes were beaten 2-1 at Watford last weekend. They did lose to a late winner though, and the Hornets have been in very good form.

A home match against Fulham feels like the ideal game for Leicester to show what they can do, and I fully expect them to beat the Cottagers.

The visitors did show a bit of improvement under Scott Parker against Chelsea last Sunday, but they still lost, and it's now nine defeats from their last 10 in all competitions.

Andrew Atherley is also expecting a good day for Leicester.

Magpies to make it five

Bet 2: Back Newcastle @ 9/5 - KO 15:00 GMT

Everton put in one of their best displays of the campaign in the Merseyside Derby last weekend, but it was still only good enough for a 0-0 draw, and I am not convinced that they will be able to follow it up at Newcastle.

The hosts lost 2-0 at West Ham on Saturday, but at home it's four straight victories - three of which were to nil. That run of form included a 2-1 success over Man City, so it's not like they were just beating a bunch of also-rans.

The Toffee's have lost seven of their 14 on the road this term and with Rafa Benitez's men performing so well at St James', I think it could be eight away defeats for Marco Silva's side by the time the afternoon is over.

Bournemouth to end miserable away run

Bet 3: Back Bournemouth 13/10 - KO 15:00 GMT

The Cherries have hardly been in scintillating form in 2019, but they travel to Huddersfield this afternoon, and they should have enough about them to be able to take all three points.

The Terriers are three points adrift at the bottom of the league, and they with just nine games to go, they are 13 points from safety.

A whopping 15 of their last 17 in all competitions have ended in defeat, and while they did beat Wolves 1-0 on their last outing here, I can't see a repeat performance.

It should be noted that Eddie Howe's side have lost nine on the bounce away from the Vitality, but they did at least win at West Ham, Watford and Fulham earlier in the campaign.
