Premier League preview

The Premier League is back after another international break, which will be the last for this year. Waiting to burst onto our screens is the early Saturday kick-off, as the Etihad plays host to another chapter in the City-Liverpool rivalry. The story this season is not one that the two teams were used to in the past five to six years, other teams have caught up to them, and the level of competition has become cut-throat. In this blog, we will look ahead at the main event but also at the clash between Newcastle and Chelsea as well as Tottenham as they take on Aston Villa.

Manchester City V Liverpool 

PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: D – W – W – W – L  VS  W – D – W – W – D

The build-up to this match has been tainted in some way due to the many injuries sustained to mainly Manchester City’s squad, with the latest one being Norwegian Erling Haaland. Liverpool, on the other hand, looks to have a couple of players returning to the pitch and fit; these include Alexis Mac Allister, who served a one-match suspension due to receiving five yellow cards. The pair of Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate both are expected to be ready for action as they overcame their minor issues; Ryan Gravenberch will also be back after his run of Premier League stars ended with a knee niggle. 

Although Pep Guardiola has a long list of names unavailable for selection, the squad is well-fortified to compete at the highest level. The gap between first and fifth is just three points, so it’s a tight affair at the top, and a slip-up can result in dropping a couple of places. We are excited to bring you some fantastic odds on this game, and although the time frame has been criticized by Jurgen Klopp, obviously, we are expecting a titanic battle between these two great sides. 

Manchester City lined up as the favourites to win on the day, but the threat of Liverpool always lies on the counter-attack and lightning speed from Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah. We are pricing Liverpool to score first at 2.65, with the eventual goalscorer being Mo Salah at 3.15. On the other hand, Manchester City are priced at 3.65 to win and not concede a goal.

Match Odds: Manchester City to win at 1.67, Liverpool to win at 4.60, whilst a draw is valued at 4.45

Tottenham V Aston Villa 

PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: L – L – W – W – W   VS   W – L – W – W – D 

After picking up three manager of the month awards, Ange Postecoglou will be scratching his head about how his team let a lead dissipate against Wolves in stoppage time to make it two consecutive defeats. The usual rhetoric is invoked as key personnel are missing due to injury and suspensions. A tougher task lies ahead as Unai Emery’s Aston Villa come to visit. Aston Villa have been performing well, and it’s not a surprise as all can see the potential and quality in the side; the Spanish coach gave them confidence and structure, something that was lacking in Steven Gerrard’s stint at the club.  

Both teams look to go on the front foot, and as we saw against Chelsea, Ange doesn’t shy away from a challenge. He will still be without Destiny Udogie, James Maddison, Van de Ven and Romero, four players who played exceptionally well in the first couple of games. Aston Villa are oozing confidence after their win against Fulham and tough encounter against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa Conference League. 

We are anticipating a tight match with most of the action being played in the middle of the park and both sides cancelling each other out. We are pricing under 2.50 goals in the game at 2.60, with Ollie Watkins to score anytime during the match at 2.65. The English striker has been on fire lately and could well be the key player to keep an eye out for come this Sunday. 

Match Odds: Tottenham Hotspurs are slightly favoured in this encounter, priced at 2.32, with Aston Villa coming in at 2.85 and a draw valued at 3.90

Newcastle V Chelsea 

PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: L – W – D – W  – D  VS  D – W – L – D – W 

Another interesting and vital game for both sides’ Premier League aspirations; Newcastle are sitting seventh in the league whilst Chelsea are yet to place firmly in the top half of the table. The football from Maurizio Pochettino and his Blues has been impressive, beating Tottenham and drawing against Manchester City late on, but results need to come on a consistent basis to propel the Blues up the table. One of the biggest flaws in their football is that they are wasteful in front of goal, mainly Nicolas Jackson. 

Newcastle also have a long list of injuries, which worried Kieran Trippier as he confronted some disgruntled Jordies after their latest defeat against Bournemouth. Newcastle at home is a different type of challenge; they make the atmosphere so hostile even the world’s best athletes are affected. Two great sides with great ambitions for this season clash at St. James’ Park and we are offering some mouth-watering odds to spice things up. 

Similar to the game against Arsenal, Newcastle will look to get into the faces of Chelsea and unsettle the back line, thus pricing a tight affair with not many goals; we are pricing under 2.50 goals at 1.98. Chelsea looks to kick on from their excellent performances against Spurs and City, and a 2-1 win is valued at 10.00

Match Odds: Newcastle United are the favourites to win the three points as they come in at 2.55, with the visiting team at 2.80 and a draw priced at 3.45.
