Can Spurs Join a Unique Top-Flight Group? | The Analyst Hat-Trick: Episode Four

The international break has come to a close, meaning the Premier League is back this weekend for gameweek four and with it the return of The Analyst Hat-Trick.

Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur are the only side with a 100% record so far this campaign and victory against Crystal Palace, so long as they don’t concede a goal, will see them join a rather unique group of top-flight sides with only four teams having previously done so. But what do our predictors think will be the outcome for this and our other feature matches where Wolves hope to pick up their first win of the season against Watford and Brentford take on Brighton for the first time in the Premier League?

Well, if you don’t want to watch the video for all the additional insight into the games, as well as the win probability model’s outcomes for each Premier League match – here’s a quick run-through along with the season-long standings.
