PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES: ROUND SEVEN BETTING
Manchester United vs Everton
A vital home victory (2-1) in the Champions League last Wednesday may be enough to settle the ship for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his side claimed just one win in their previous four games.
Although it won’t be a game remembered fondly, moments of individual brilliance proved to be the difference against Villarreal. A super strike from Alex Telles and a clinical finish from the competitions top goalscorer, Cristiano Ronaldo, gifted Manchester United the all-important three points.
Under Rafael Benitez, Everton have been going about their work brilliantly. Four league wins, a draw and a single loss has pushed the Toffees into a respectable fifth place, just one point away from the league leaders, Liverpool.
While Manchester United may be the first real test Everton have this season, they won’t be an opponent the Blues take lightly. A fierce rivalry between the Red Devils and Rafael Benitez is sure to still burn bright, with the latter undoubtedly keen on denting his opponents’ title chances and league aspirations.
Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. vs Arsenal
What a season it’s been so far for Brighton & Hove Albion.
Not many would have predicted that the Seagulls would only be a point off the league leaders seven games into the season with four wins under their belt. Graham Potter’s galvanised squad have rocked the Premier Leagues; they’ve breezed past Burnley, Brentford, Watford, and Leicester and managed a thrilling last-minute draw against main rivals Crystal Palace (1-1) last weekend.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have enjoyed a complete recovery.
After failing to score a goal and losing all three of their opening fixtures, the Gunners returned from the international break with a point to prove. 1-0 victories against Norwich and Burnley may have been put down to the quality of the opposition, but their 3-1 hammering of Tottenham in the North London derby would have reverberated across the league.
Tottenham vs Aston Villa
A 5-1 victory against Mura in the European Conference League will have done little to paper over the cracks at Tottenham – even if Harry Kane scored a hat-trick.
Everything looked like it was on the right track before the international break. Nunu Espirito Santo’s side were top of the table with three wins out of three. Unfortunately for Spurs, defeats against Crystal Palace (3-0), Chelsea (3-0) and Arsenal (3-1) have seen them slip down the standings and settle into 11th place.
Aston Villa have settled into the season nicely. Many may have thought that the departure of Jack Grealish would translate to a dip in quality for the Lions; however, that has not been the case.
Three recent wins in a row against Everton, Chelsea (EFL Cup) and Manchester United have proved that Villa are more than capable of mixing it up with the very best. This Sunday, Dean will undoubtedly have his side ready to inflict more damage on a wounded Tottenham and claim three more vital points to add to their league tally of 10.
