The Premier League returns this weekend for another exciting round of matches. The headline fixture sees Chelsea host Manchester City on Sunday in a blockbuster clash. Chelsea will be brimming with confidence after their dominant thrashing of Tottenham last time out.
Wolverhampton v Tottenham
The Wolves, after a sensational defeat by Sheffield, will be thirsty for blood. And a weakened by injuries, two expulsions and an emotional defeat, Tottenham may not be able to show their game. But most likely Conte will find someone to replace the losses and motivate the team for the game. We expect a fierce game and Tottenham’s victory with a couple of goals scored.
Manchester United v Luton Town
United’s victory in the previous round in the final minutes is pleasant, but still speaks of the team’s inability to confidently solve problems in matches. And this match is no exception, Luton robbed Liverpool of points in the last round and will be in good spirits. But will there be enough strength to restrain the Reds? We expect a minimal victory for Manchester.
Crystal Palace v Everton
The Toffees are visiting Palace. In this Premier League draw, the teams are approximately equal in strength, although Palace is 4 points ahead. Both teams directly depend on the game of their leaders, which makes making a prediction a very difficult task. Our prediction is a minimal victory for one of the parties.
Arsenal v Burnley
The Gunners, disappointed by the defeat to Newcastle, will host the eternally losing Burnley. And Arsenal at home will dominate from the first minutes and will try to please the fans with beautiful football and scored goals. Burnley will play defense, but how long they last we’ll see only on the weekend. Arsenal is the undisputed favorite of the meeting and we can expect a confident victory by 2 or more goals.
Bournemouth v Newcastle
Bournemouth is not to be envied, after 11 rounds the team is in the relegation zone and has one win. The previous match was completely failed against City and now somehow you need to tune in for Newcastle. The guests, having beaten Arsenal, are eager for the top 5 and are unlikely to want to share points. Newcastle knows how to attack sharply, which has been shown more than once. We expect Newcastle to win by 2 or more goals.
Brighton v Sheffield United
The Seagulls bounced back against the Toffees, the team after a decent start segment stopped demonstrating their attacking football. The Blades, on the other hand, secured an emotionally important first win of the season against the Wolves. But I don’t think Brighton will let them gain momentum. The Seagulls are the favorites of the meeting, and depending on the state of the team’s leaders, we can expect their victory to be minimal or large.
Liverpool v Brentford
The Bees managed to defeat the Hammers in a shootout, but away at Liverpool they are unlikely to walk around. Although the hosts only drew against Luton, this will not change the balance of power. The only question is what Jurgen Klopp will do with Darwin Nunez? Settle him down for the game and adjust his sights or let him “rest” after such a game. We expect Liverpool to win, maybe not with a clean sheet, but by one or two goals.
West Ham v Nottingham Forest
The Hammers against the Foresters. The teams approach the match in different moods. The hosts lost a shootout, while the guests surprisingly easily dealt with Aston Villa. The proximity in the table adds tension to the match, and we can expect active play from both teams. West Ham is nominally stronger, but we expect a minimal victory for one of the parties or a draw.
Aston Villa v Fulham
The disastrous match against the Foresters should force the Lions to gather their thoughts for this match. The London club lost minimally to Manchester United, not showing themselves much in attack. Aston Villa is the favorite in this meeting, and at home they should beat Fulham and score at least two goals.
Chelsea v Manchester City
The central match of the tour. City goes to visit Chelsea. Both teams won their previous games. City bullied Bournemouth, while Chelsea won the derby against Tottenham. Both teams have many stars in their squad and you can expect spectacular football. But the undisputed favorite of the meeting is of course Manchester City, and to avoid defeat, Chelsea must produce their best match. We expect City to win by 2 or more goals.
