Round 14 of the English Premier League will be a test of character and physicality for many teams. The third game in the last 7 days (for some sixth in the past 13) is bound to be tough. BetXChange brings an exclusive preview of the Premiership’s Gameweek 14.
Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool
The Eagles snapped one point on the road, extending their defeatless stretch to three games. Still, across the field, they have Liverpool, fired-up after a last-minute win over Tottenham Hotspur. It is a great boost of morale for the champs, and regardless of all the injuries, the swing created against the Spurs will carry them over this tough road challenge.
Pick: Liverpool 0.50 at BetXChange
Southampton vs. Manchester City
The most anticipated match of the round for many. The Saints are in excellent shape and are looking to add more points to their tally. However, they have Man City coming to town, with Guardiola’s guys keeping the pace at a high level. We aren’t going to go for a full-time winner, but focus on goals. Both teams to score and over 2.5 scores is our choice.
Pick: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals 0.78 at BetXChange
Everton vs. Arsenal
We don’t know what to tell you about Arsenal. It seems that the Gunners will stay at the bottom half of the standings the way they play at the moment. This team underachieves massively. On the other side, Everton had a small crisis, but two wins over Chelsea and Leicester brought them on the right path once again.
Pick: Everton 1.25 at BetXChange
Newcastle vs. Fulham
The Magpies won two in a row and then suffered a catastrophe against Leeds, 5-2. Still, even with that loss, they are looking much better than the struggling and pale Fulham, who doesn’t know how to win matches they are supposed to. We are more than positive, that Newcastle won’t have any problems against the Cottagers.
Pick: Newcastle 1.50 at BetXChange
Brighton vs. Sheffield United
This is the match the Seagulls need to win. If they want to stay in the Premier League, beating the last-placed Blades is a must. So, we won’t go into some deeper analysis here; Brighton it is.
Pick: Brighton 0.70 at BetXChange
Tottenham vs. Leicester
Jose Mourinho was very upset that his team lost against Liverpool, and he is probably already pumping the Spurs ahead of their clash with Leicester City. The Foxes, too, lost a derby, only against Everton, but at Kings Power stadium. This will be a very tough and defensive-minded matchup, so our pick here would be both teams not to score. After all, Leicester’s four of the previous five games saw that.
Pick: Both teams not to score 1.10 at BetXChange
Manchester United vs. Leeds
The Red Devils have no options but to win this game. This especially goes for Solskjaer, who, although, recovered his team following a Champions League exit, still hasn’t secured his job. The Peacocks thrashed Newcastle, bouncing back following two losses. It seems that once again, they play efficient football, and that will affect our recommendation here.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals 0.55 at BetXChange
West Brom vs. Aston Villa
The Baggies sacked Slaven Bilic one day following his draw against Manchester City on the road. This made the fans furious. We’ll see what will be the response from the players. Aston Villa comes to town, after two games in which they haven’t allowed a goal, looking much better than before. We need to give a slight edge to the Villains here, as they have far less negative turbulences in the locker room than the home team.
Pick: Aston Villa 0.95 at BetXChange
Burnley vs. Wolves
This is a clash of two sides who are playing ultra-defensive football, and we won’t waste too much of your time here. Under 2.5 goals is the final pick.
Pick: Under 2.5 goals 0.53 at BetXChange
Chelsea vs. West Ham
A great match to close the round. The Blues are in trouble, losing two straight games, both of them against the teams from the upper part of the standings. Many are questioning Frank Lampard’s authority in such contests, as Chelsea often comes out on the losing sides after them. The Hammers have one defeat in the past six events. The way they play, David Moyes’ boys should score a goal at Stamford. We aren’t suggesting that West Ham should win, or get out with a draw, but beat Mendy at least once.
Pick: Both teams to score 0.70 at BetXChange
