This is a quite balanced Premier League weekend. There are 6 games played on Saturday and 4 more important on Sunday. After match day 11 there is an international break.
No early kick-off this week, but Friday’s sample with Leicester drawing at West Ham has opened our appetite for more Premier League action.
From the 5 matches starting at 15.00 (UK) we have made a couple of selections. One is from Old Trafford where Man Utd host Brighton hoping to keep up the pace than Man City has set in the league and of course not to lose sight of them. There has been matches that you would fall asleep watching United playing, but there has been 5 out of the 12 games they scored exactly 4 goals. Ninth placed Brighton has had an excellent season so far, but they will be focusing more on Tuesday’s match versus Crystal Palace at home. Especially if they receive one (or two) early goal(s). This could be a game with goals and I’ll take the risk betting on more than 3.
I also fancy ‘reading’ behind the odds on Stoke’s matches, especially on bet365. Stoke is playing at Crystal Palace. They are unbeaten in their last three (1-2-0) and could have won at Brighton (2-2). Crystal Palace are struggling to get in form and become consistent. They’ve only beaten Chelsea (2-1 at home) from the beginning of the season. With the pressure hitting the sky, there could be more drama coming towards Selhurst Park.
The most interesting Premier League game today is held in Anfield where two quickly improving teams face each other, Liverpool vs Chelsea. Klopp saw Sevilla fighting back and earning a well deserved point with a 3-3 draw on Tuesday, while Chelsea might have had an easy outing Qarabag (0-4), but the trip to Azerbaijan has definitely been more tiring. Both teams try to stay close to the top. Liverpool needs the win to catch Chelsea and get into that top-4 and Conte’s team is trying to hold on to their position. I don’t think anyone will compromise, but I consider the draw a very possible result here.
There are three games played on Sunday. I’ve broken them down to one instinct (Southampton v Everton 2-3 goals), one logical (Burnley v Arsenal Over 2.5 goals) and one fun bet, coming from the Huddersfield v Man City game.
I’ll be 100% honest with you here. I think Huddersfield could beat Man City once or twice in a hundred times, if were to play one after the other games between each other. However, that 1-2% is what makes the deadlines sometimes. And Huddersfield have already beaten Man United in the season (2-1).
So, I have this kind of feeling that you don’t want to lose out if a big upset happens, it is not something that comes out of stats. There is also one more reason why I pick the 1 Draw No Bet (at the price of 13.00!) on that game.
I don’t think any there should be any Premier League game were the home team is 18/1 (19.00) to win. Even if they play one of the most in-form teams in Europe.
