🟨Bournemouth v Aston Villa: Chris Mepham (11/4)
Steven Gerrard has his own aspirations at Villa and will be looking for a European spot this season, it will be a tough challenge but one the scouser will relish.
Focusing on the front line of Villa is where I feel the selection makes sense. Having to deal with a potential front 3 of Coutinho, Bailey, and Watkins brings pace and the opportunity to get caught off guard. Couple that with McGinn and Ramsay through the middle, two of their most fouled players last season, and Mepham has plenty of challenges to face, and his back line are inexperienced to an extent and will be on the back foot a lot.
Mepham saw a card in 7/22 games last season and that was against attacks a league beneath what he takes on this season. He looks a solid choice for a booking with Peter Bankes comfortable dishing them out as the game goes on. He averaged 4.5 cards in the EPL over 12 games.
🟨Bristol City v Sunderland: Daniel Ballard (10/3)
Neither of these sides got the start they wanted with Bristol City losing late at Hull and Sunderland not able to dispatch Coventry on home turf.
Sunderland racked up 4 cards in the opener conceding 16 fouls in the process, especially in the second half there were some needless cards they picked up and they suffered on the right-hand side of their pitch. The back 3 and the middle of the pitch are not scared to be physical.
The hosts on the other didn’t seem that way and if anything they should have a smarter style trying to be accurate with their passing and be patient and counter Hull, they ranked second for most dribbles and had been fouled 11 times. They won’t make it easy for Sunderland.
The key battle for this Sunderland back line will be Chris Martin’s threat, he’s a physical handful and will frustrate the back line with Ballard most likely to crack, Martin was fouled 4 times last week whilst Ballard committed 4 fouls. These two will come to blows is my gut and at the odds it’s a value play under a ref (Stroud) who gave av average of 4.38 yellows last season across 26 games.
🟨QPR v Middlesbrough: Sam Field (13/5)
I think this has the makings of a good game but I’d be siding with Middlesbrough for this one. Chris Wilder knows what it takes to be at the top end and gain promotion from this league and the players are buying into his philosophy. They looked good in possession last week and created plenty of opportunities and were unlucky not to get a win against a West Brom side tipped up for a top 6 spot come season end.
There will be battles across the field here as QPR try to get a grip of the game and with my prediction of them being on the back foot I expect the combative Sam Field to be at the fore in the middle and stamp his authority. 14 yellows in 27 games last season tells you he likes a foul and the ref isn’t shy about giving cards to those who don’t listen to their warnings.
🟨Reading v Cardiff: Andy Rinomhota (13/5)
Cardiff produced a battling display to show Norwich it won’t be all sunshine and roses in the Championship. But the way they went about it didn’t surprise me. There are plenty of physical players in that side and on the road this week they face a Reading side tipped by many for the drop.
The hosts will view this as winnable and will need to make their home form solid in order to stay up. They showed enough at Blackpool to suggest they will cause Cardiff problems.
In terms of value, there were a few players but in view of last week’s opener, I felt the selection put himself about delivering 5 tackles and 2 fouls and will be in a midfield tasked with getting a grip of things. With Darren England in the middle, if he continues his tackles from last week he will find himself in the book.
