The international break is over, and all the players are coming back to their clubs. It is time for the national championships to get back on track, and we are here to make a short preview for EPL’s Week 9.
Newcastle vs. Chelsea
The Magpies are in deep trouble following the international break, as several of their players won’t be able to face Chelsea. Wilson, Shelvey, Dubravka, etc, all of them are out. On the other side, Chelsea is looking good overall, and they hope to continue with solid results recorded before the pause. Odds on their win are dropping, so hurry up and bet until they still have some value.
Pick: Chelsea 0.50 at BetXChange
Aston Villa vs. Brighton
A 0-3 win over Arsenal in London was a refreshment for the Villains who dropped two in a row before that victory. They have a nice chance to add another win, with poor Brighton coming to town. The Seagulls are without a win in seven straight events, six of them in the EPL. This is an opportunity Grealish and the guys simply have to use.
Pick: Aston Villa 1.15 at BetXChange
Tottenham vs. Manchester City
The derby of Saturday’s program. Two sides with high ambitions and huge rivalry created over the past few years. The Citizens are without Raheem Sterling and Aguero upfront, which is a massive setback. Yet, Ferran Torres is in excellent shape. On the other side, Tottenham’s players had lots of challenges during the international break, and it seems that whoever recovers first will have an edge in this clash.
Pick: Moderate efficiency 2 or 3 goals, 0.95 BetXChange
Manchester United vs. West Brom
The Red Devils’ fans are upset with Rashford’s and Lingard’s minor injuries. Their status for this match is still questionable, even though they had time to recover. One of the worst teams in the league comes to Trafford, and three points are imperative because of the atmosphere in the locker room. Solskjaer’s job is under pressure, meaning that there can’t be any mistakes here.
Pick: United 0.30 at BetXChange
Fulham vs. Everton
Both sides had several of their important players involved in international affairs over the past two weeks. That could have a big impact on the result. When looking at the overall picture, Everton is a much better side, with better players and a better manager. The profit on their win is very high, but we believe that Carlo Ancelotti’s side won’t have any problems against a mediocre Cottagers.
Pick: Everton 0.90 at BetXChange
Sheffield United vs. West Ham
The Blades are dead last in league with just one point in eight games. On the other side, West Ham is playing well, and do know that they had one of the toughest schedules meeting with Tottenham, Man City, and Liverpool all one after another. Only the Reds managed to defeat them.
Pick: Draw or West Ham 0.36 at BetXChange
Leeds vs. Arsenal
This is a classic, and all the football fans can’t wait for it to start. The Peacocks began the season very well, but slowed down recently, having won just once in five matches. On the other side, Arsenal, as usual, plays inconsistently, and after three straight wins (one at the Old Trafford), they suffered a nasty defeat at home to Aston Villa. Both sides play efficient football, Leeds having three straight with over 2.5 goals, and Arsenal three in the past four with the same efficiency.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 0.66 at BetXChange
Liverpool vs. Leicester
The Reds are not happy after this international break, with several of their players having picked up injuries. The worst situation at the moment is in defense, where they won’t have Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, nor Joe Gomez. Right now, they are without a loss in six straight games, having won all matches apart from the latest one against City, 1-1. The Foxes, too, have six in a row without a defeat. Only, they managed to win in each event.
Pick: 2 or 3 goals 1.03 at BetXChange
Burnley vs. Crystal Palace
Have no doubt this will be the most boring game of the round, as both sides protect their goal first and attack later. Even though Palace produces some efficient games lately, that is not because they wanted it to happen, but due to the rival’s style of play. Burnley didn’t score a goal in four straight. That is enough said.
Pick: Both teams not to score 0.75 at BetXChange
Wolves vs. Southampton
Espirito Santo’s guys caught the rhythm but lost a game following four defeatless matches. However, all of their events were under 2.5 goals during that stretch. Meanwhile, the Saints are smashing and bashing the entire league. They won five in the last six, playing only a draw with Chelsea on the road, 3-3. This will be a test of their strength, and we believe that Saints won’t disappoint.
Pick: Draw or Southampton 0.57 at BetXChange
