Saturday, November 21st
Newcastle United vs Chelsea
With complaints about the team’s style of play continuing to fester among the online hordes of Magpies’ supporters, Newcastle face a tough as nails task against Chelsea at St. James’ Park in Saturday’s early kick-off when the Premier League resumes.
The Blues had really hit the groove before the international break, stringing together an impressive eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions that included six clean sheets. With Timo Werner’s influence on the rise, and Hakim Ziyech adding sparkle from the right flank, Chelsea should have too much firepower for Newcastle to contain in the north east.
Betting Tip: Chelsea to Win @9/20
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur are flying high in second spot, but amid talk of possible title tilts, Spurs’ recent performances have been unconvincing, and they needed a combination of late goals and controversial penalties to see off Burnley, Brighton and West Brom.
An encounter with Man City – who are unbeaten in nine matches – represents a massive step up in quality from the trio of sides Spurs toiled against, and the Citizens could bring their emboldened hosts back to earth with a thump.
Betting Tip: Manchester City to Win @4/5
Manchester United vs West Brom
United are always just one poor result away from a crisis, and anything other than a victory against West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday evening is certain to spawn a thousand Solskjaer hatchet pieces.
The newly promoted Baggies are still searching for their first Premier League win of the new campaign, and though they are massive underdogs ahead of their trip to the Theatre of Dreams, you get the sense that Albion might provide a scary moment or two of their hosts.
Betting Tip: Manchester United and Both Teams to Score @15/8
Sunday, November 22nd
Leeds vs Arsenal
After a poor run of result, and successive 4-1 hammerings at the hands of Leicester and Crystal Palace respectively – the mystique around the Yorkshireman and Marcelo Bielsa seems to be fading, and Leeds face another tough test of their top-flight mettle against Arsenal at Elland Road on Sunday.
The Gunners had looked despairingly abject in the final third in the run up to the international hiatus however, and their spot-kick winner against Man Utd at Old Trafford was their only goal in four Premier League matches before the break. This one could be tense.
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @6/5
Liverpool vs Leicester City
Early pace setters Leicester City put their title challenging aspirations on the line when they visit the home of the current champions, though Liverpool’s worsening personnel crisis could see the Foxes approach their Anfield test with more attacking intent than they normally would.
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between these clubs, and Leicester’s push for victory against their weakened hosts should ensure supporters are treating to an open, end-to-end contest again.
Betting Tip: Over 2.5 Goals @8/13
Monday, November 23rd
Wolves vs Southampton
With a surge of five wins from six assignments, Southampton had been in electric form in the Premier League before the international distractions, and with the wind in their sails, the Saints will be playing with confidence at Molineux on Monday evening.
Southampton – who are averaging 2.0 goals per 90 minutes in the league this term – will expect to score against Wanderers, even without the services of injured talisman Danny Ings, though Wolves – who notched in 22 of their last 25 Premier League home games – have the quality to respond.
Betting Tip: Both Teams to Score @19/20
