The English Premier League is here, and we are ahead of two quick rounds that take place this weekend and immediately after that, next Tuesday. This is the preview for matchday 11, fasten your seatbelts, we are taking off.
Liverpool VS Manchester City
The clash of two powerhouses and the most dominant teams on the British island in the last five years. Though, Liverpool doesn’t look like that anymore, with the Reds struggling to provide consistency and good results. They’ve allowed at least a goal in seven of the last 10 games, meaning that the defense is awful. The positive news is a win over Rangers this Tuesday in the Champions League, 1-7, with Salah scoring a hat-trick in less than 10 minutes.
On the other hand, Man City rolls over its rivals, thanks to not only fantastic Haaland, who already has 15 goals and threatens to break all the EPL records known to us. The Citizens are second in the standings, one point behind Arsenal, not losing a single of its nine games – seven wins and two draws.
Our pick for this one is over 3.5 goals. It is a risky one, but these two sides provide fireworks each time they meet, and the last six games were all over 2.5 scores, plus both teams scoring.
Pick: Over 3.5 goals 5/4 at BetXchange
Fulham VS Bournemouth
The Cottagers slowed down in the recent few games, losing three of the past four, yet the efficiency of their appearances stayed at the same level. The last six games this unit played were all with both teams scoring over 2.5 goals. What might be the reason for this drop is the fact that Aleksandar Mitrovic skipped a few events, and he is under question mark for this one as well.
On the other side, the Cherries are on the rise, not losing five consecutive matches, winning two and posting three draws. All but one of their five road contests this year has been with three or more goals.
If Mitrovic plays, we are taking this one over 2.5 goals. Even without the Serbian attacker, this is a very valuable pick, and we would take it anyway.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 19/20 at BetXchange
Tottenham VS Everton
Tottenham finally won an important game, and they managed to do that following a comeback. Eintracht was beaten following a huge fight, and that’s why we expect to see the Spurs very motivated and fired up here.
Everton lost to United on Sunday night, snapping a streak of solid games and results. This unit is limited, which is why Frank Lampard prefers to play defensively. He is aware of the Toffees’ quality.
Still, we think that the Spurs will find a way to crack Everton’s defense and record three points.
Pick: Tottenham wins 1/2 at BetXhchange
Leeds VS Arsenal
The Peacocks are in terrible shape, not winning the previous five games, having three losses and two draws. On the other side, we have Arsenal, who is fantastic, posting just one loss in nine EPL fixtures, with a goal difference of 23-10.
Mikel Arteta didn’t use several of his top players in Norway against Bodo on Thursday night, and all of them are ready to roll on Saturday afternoon. The situation in Leeds is completely different, with the Peacocks having numerous injured players.
Due to all of this, we are picking Arsenal’s win as the best suggestion for this one. The Gunners are bombarding the EPL, and they are going to keep doing that on Sunday.
Pick: Arsenal wins 1/2 at BetXchange
Leicester VS Crystal Palace
The Foxes have nothing to wait for, and they will need to attack as soon as the game starts. Maddison and the boys are in desperate need of three points, which is why this unit has to be aggressive. Leicester’s games are efficient, and only two since the season began didn’t see three hits.
Palace is inconsistent as usual, and the Eagles play in waves, having positive and negative results. What we see in their performances are goals, often on both ends – six of nine this season ended like that.
That would be our final pick for today’s EPL preview, Leicester VS Crystal Palace BTTS.
Pick: Both teams to score 2/3 at BetXchange
