ENGLAND PREMIER LEAGUE PREVIEWS AND PREDICTION
Welcome all to this weekend England Premier league Previews and prediction. Its super Sunday in the EPL where we have 2 crucial matches. Below are what you need to know about these matches and predictions.
CHELSEA VS MANCHESTER UNITED
Chelsea will be looking to put the mid week Champions league disappointment behind them when they come up against their former manager Jose Maurinho on sunday evening. The blues having drawn their first leg at Stamford Brigde went to Rome hoping to secure at least a draw to keep them on top of the group but they came back home with a 3-0 defeat.
Antonio Conte men will turn their attentions to the Premier League as they look to get their title defence back on track. Last Epl game was 1-0 win at Bournemouth which leave them at 4th position in the league table, already nine points behind the unstoppable Manchester City.
So far this season Chelsea have lost at home to Burnley and Manchester city and only managed 2 wins in 5 games. This doesn’t bode well for the defending Champions as they welcome the Red Devils to Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
Jose Maurinhos Manchester united travel to West London on a back of an unconvincing 2-0 win against Benfica in the Champions League. Prior to the Benfica game, a 0-0 goalless draw at Liverpool followed by a 1-0 home win over Tottenham as the ”Special one” continues his pragmatic approach to the big games.
Manchester united unlike the beginning of the season are now struggling to score goals. They have only scored seven goals in their last six competitive games, which is a far cry from the side that scored 22 times in the seven games preceding this run.
The Red Devils little problem lies on the road as 5 of their 7 points dropped as come away from home. We should expect a very tight game on Sunday as both side will be desperate to avoid defeat.
Considering Manchester united away form this season and Chelsea sruggling to find good home form, both teams will be desperate to avoid defeat here.
PICK; FULL TIME DRAW
MANCHESTER CITY VS ARSENAL
Manchester City’s continue their astounding form on Wednesday with 4-2 win at Napoli in the Champions League. The win takes them to the the round of 16 with 2 games to spare. This thanks to their breathtaking attacking style of football as they’ve shown they can pummel any team right now.
They are now unbeaten in their 16 competitive matches this season, and have only failed to win twice in this period. One of these came in the League Cup, leaving them with a very impressive 28 points from a possible 30 in the Premier League, putting them five points clear of arch rivals Manchester United.
Manchester City’s only dropped points this season was their controversial 1-1 draw against Everton in the second game of the game of the season. Since then they have crush every thing that came their part, scoring 30 times. Also they have netted 21 times in just 5 league games at home this season. So the Arsenal defense have to be in their utmost best to have a chance of reducing the damage that can be caused by this city’s attack.
Arsenal come into this match on the back of a disappointing goalless draw against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night. The draw put an end to their four match winning streaks, and 3 in the competition.
The visitors have won just one of their five away days in the Premier League this campaign, losing three times in the process. This includes dismal defeats to Stoke and Watford, and even more worrying is the fact they were hammered 4-0 at Liverpool. Their last four trips to top four sides have resulted in three defeats, one draw, and a total of 12 goals conceded.
All but one of Manchester City’s home games have seen at least three goals, and i can see nothing but a home win here so i’m backing Manchester City to Win and Over 2.5 Goals.
PICK; HOME WIN AND OVER 2.5 GOALS
