ENGLAND PREMIER LEAGUE PREVIEWS AND PREDICTION
Greetings to all and Welcome all to another beautiful and exciting weekend of England Premier League football. The big one this weekend sees runaway league leaders Manchester city entertains Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturdays late kickoff game. Defending Champion Chelsea will be looking to continue their top 4 charge as they entartains Southampton. Arsenal should be too strong at home for Newcastle side who are in desperate need of points. On Sunday, Manchester United travel to Westbromwish Albion in search of another 3 points. Below are our thoughts on some of these games;
ARSENAL VS NEWCASTLE UNITED
Arsenal will have a chance to return to winning ways as they host struggling Newcastle united tomorrow. Their last home game saw them beaten by Jose Mourihno’s Manchester United(1-3). They also failed to get 3 points at Southampton(1-1). Mid week goalless draw at West Ham makes it the 3rd game without a win in the EPL. But I can’t see that tally increase further tomorrow as they entertain Newcastle who are in dreadful form at the moment.
Newcastle last win stretch as far back as October, when they earned a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace. Since then they have recorded a shocking 7 defeats and a draw. This absolutely doesn’t bode well for a side travelling to North London. Although they don’t have troubles scoring, the defense cannot cope with the opposition’s forwards.
Arsenal are clear favourites in this one and everything except a home win would be a huge surprise. As expected, Arsenal win are priced very low, but i expect the gunners to win in a match that should see at least 3 goals. Therefore i’m going for an Arsenal win and over 2.5 goals @ 1.75 odds
CHELSEA VS SOUTHAMPTON
Chelsea fell to a 1-0 defeat last week against London rivals West Ham, but they instantly rebounded from it with an impressive showing away at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday Night.
It was done in the absence of injured Alvaro Morata, goals from Tiemoue Bakayoko, Willian and Pedro was enough to earn a comfortable victory for the Champion. Morata will probably skip the home outing with Southampton as well and we can expect Antonio Conte to play with Eden Hazard as the false nine up front once again.
Southampton are currently positioned in the mid-table, but there’s an impression that they could do more in the current campaign. They suffered a real disaster in mid-week when they allowed as many as four goals in a demolishing defeat to Leicester City at their St. Mary’s. Bouncing back against the reigning champions will be one hell of a task for Maurizio Pellegrino and his men.
Chelsea is in a four-win streak when playing in front of home crowd and are the clear favourite to bag whole points here. But i’m expecting the visitors to at least score a goal tomorrow as they’ve done so in their last 5 matches. So main pick here is Chelsea win and Both teams to score @ 3.25 odds.
MANCHESTER CITY VS TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS
Manchester City have one hand on the title after deservedly beaten their arch rival Manchester united last week. They further went to put on a super strong display in mid-week when they eased past the struggling Swansea City side netting four goals at Liberty Stadium. Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Sergio Aguero were all on target while Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus were rested. We can expect to see them on the pitch against the Spurs who’ll have to play one of the best games of the season to get close to a potential upset here at Etihad.
After three games without a win, Spurs managed to get back to track with a strong 5-1 win against Stoke City last week. Their mid-week action saw them bag another comfortable 3 points against newly promoted Brighton. Mauricio Pochettino’s side is definitely capable of putting another good display in Manchester tomorrow.
While almost everyone will agree that the citizens are the favourite here, i think the goals market should be the clever way to approach this game. Here we have two very attacking teams, which i think should make for a very open game. Over 2.5 goals and Both teams to score is priced at 1.85 odds.
