The International break is finally over and the action restarts with one of the biggest clashes of the Premier League, as Liverpool host Mancheter United in the first match of the weekend. Crystal Palace are yet to get the first goal of their campaign, however, with Chelsea up next on the agenda, the Eagles will need a special performance to break down Conte’s defence. Arsenal will be looking to extend their winning streak against Watford and a win at Vicarage Road will move up the Gunners to the top four. Manchester City completed their fifth successive win with their victory over Chelsea before the International break and have the potential to break away from their city rivals in first place should they record a victory over Stoke and United drop points against Liverpool.
Bet on Liverpool vs Manchester United
Liverpool have one of the toughest tests all season this weekend as they face a very in-form Manchester United in a fierce battle for points and bragging rights. Liverpool are desperate for points as they’re already seven points away from the first place and unless they get something out of their next encounter, they’re going to be risking sinking even lower down the Premier League table.
There’s nothing to separate these two sides with regards to odds, as both teams are priced at 2.65 to record a victory at Anfield. But with United’s scintillating form, we can’t imagine them losing the game. The last time Manchester United emerged victorious in Liverpool was back in January of 2016 and last season, both encounters ended in a draw. A double chance bet on the Red Devils will potentially return £15 from a tenner, which is a decent price considering that your bet will be successful if United win or draw the game.
In recent history, this clash hasn’t been the goal fest we all expected it to be and from their last six clashes in the Premier League, the game ended in over 2.5 goals on only one occasion. Under 2.5 goals is priced at 2.05 but with Liverpool’s vulnerable defence, they’re prone to concede a goal or two against the second highest scoring team of the Premier League – with 21 goals. Both teams to score is an interesting bet and worth considering, knowing the fact that United conceded just two goals this season. It’s priced at 2.28.
Bet on Manchester City
With the unfortunate accident of Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus takes centre stage and will be looking to get his fifth goal of the season as City prepare to host Stoke over the weekend. There’s no real value betting on Manchester City to win, as odds are too low to consider, at 1.16. Betting on one team to score (bet will be successful if no teams score) might be a wiser option, as City only conceded two goals so far this season, and we can’t envision Stoke causing trouble to the current league leaders.
Odds for one team to score are priced at 1.76, however, the last time these two sides met at the Etihad Stadium ended in a goalless draw. Do Stoke have what it takes to find the net against a very robust and in-form squad? Stoke started their campaign in dismal form but secured their second win over Southampton before the International break. Odds for Stoke to get something out of their clash against City (double chance betting) are set at 5.50.
Bet on Tottenham
Tottenham steamrolled over Huddersfield before the International break and we’re expecting the same in their next encounter at home to Bournemouth. Spurs are currently sitting in third at the table and another win will mark their third victory on the trot. Odds for Tottenham to collect all three points aren’t fantastic at 1.20 but we’ll be looking at other bets to make your accumulator bet more exciting and rewarding.
Harry Kane is on fire lately and everything ball he seems to touch turns into gold. He bagged two goals during the International break for England and odds for him to get the first goal against Bournemouth are set at 2.80. Bournemouth lost five of their seven games played so far and it’s highly unlikely that they’ll get anything out of this encounter.
Odds for both teams to score are priced at 1.83, however, we can’t imagine the Spurs conceding next Saturday, especially when Bournemouth found the net just four times this season. One team to score (or none) is priced at 1.94, a great price to add to your accumulator bet.
