The English Premier League has numerous games in the next seven days, and BetXChange will make a preview of several most important and interesting events. The overall situation in the EPL is chaotic due to COVID-19, but do know that we will try to keep all the articles updated with the latest news.
Liverpool vs. Manchester United
The biggest game in English football. Two powerhouses, two mega teams, clash this Sunday afternoon at Anfield, to decide who will be the No.1 in the standings following this round.
Liverpool struggles and didn’t win for three consecutive league games, with the latest one in Southampton ending with the Reds’ loss, 1-0. What is even more shocking is that they haven’t scored a goal in the previous 180 minutes. That’s right, Liverpool is without a score in two matches.
United recently began playing very well, shutting down all the rumors about their meltdown following the Champions League’s elimination. The Red Devils haven’t lost 10 straight matches in the Premiership, winning 8 times during that stretch.
This will be a tough match, with the guests focusing on defense. Solskajer is always cautious on the road, and there won’t be any difference in this match as well, so don’t expect high efficiency.
Pick: Moderate efficiency, 2 or 3 goals at BetXChange
Arsenal vs. Newcastle
The Gunners are really annoying their fans. They win for several straight games beating some solid teams during that stretch, and then play 0-0 against Crystal Palace. But the good thing is that Mikel Arteta’s side hasn’t allowed a goal in the last four games.
Meanwhile, the Magpies are dreadful, without a victory in the previous 8 matches, losing six of them. They couldn’t net in five events during that stretch, while only two saw three or more goals.
The two sides met recently in the FA Cup, and Arsenal managed to eliminate the guests from the north, but only following an extra-time with Smith Rowe and Aubameyang hitting the back of Newcastle’s net in the last 10 minutes.
Arsenal should win this match as they can’t allow two slips in a row against teams who are on the downhill. Plus, they have a much better team than Newcastle.
Pick: Arsenal 0.36 at BetXChange
Leicester vs. Chelsea
These two teams will meet on Tuesday, and they both have matches on Saturday, Chelsea against Fulham and Leicester vs. Southampton. The Foxes’ game is much tougher, and we can expect them to be a bit more tired, but that won’t be of great advantage for the shaky Blues.
The morale inside Chelsea’s locker room is oscillating, and it seems that Frank Lampard’s inexperience in these cases is taking its toll. In the moments of writing this article, the Blues haven’t won in three EPL games.
On the other side, the Foxes have two wins in a row, and five without a defeat. Vardy and the boys are in much better shape, which is in this situation a crucial difference between these two teams and a reason for giving a slight edge to the home team. They won’t lose this match.
Pick: Leicester or draw 0.60 at BetXChange
Manchester City vs. Aston Villa
The Citizens are on the rise, as they have seven straight victories, posting five clean sheets during that stretch. Overall, Man City kept its net intact in three of the previous 10 games.
Across the field is Aston Villa, whose grip loosened in the previous three events. The Villains have one draw and two defeats, losing against three big teams, Chelsea, Man Utd, and Liverpool. Though the last one in the FA Cup saw Villa appearing with teenagers.
We would recommend betting on City’s win with a -1.5 handicap. Odds are pretty solid here.
Pick: Man City -1.5 0.65 at BetXChange
