Midweek games are back in the EPL as the stage is set for a busy year-end. The next 18 days or so will witness four rounds of games. Whoever survives this phase unscathed could go on to win the title. At the moment, Chelsea appear the red hot favourite, as they have a three-point lead over second-placed Arsenal and a six-point lead over third-placed Liverpool. But the next four games could witness some year-end madness and you could see some change at the top. Anyways, you can take your pick from any of the following games for online betting.
Bournemouth vs Leicester City
Everton vs Arsenal
Middlesbrough vs Liverpool
Sunderland vs Chelsea
West Ham United vs Burnley
Crystal Palace vs Manchester United
Manchester City vs Watford
Stoke City vs Southampton
Tottenham Hotspur vs Hull City
West Bromwich Albion vs Swansea City
Marquee Match of the Week
It has to be Everton vs Arsenal. Everton have not won any of their last five Premier League games. The 5-0 defeat against Chelsea seems to have punctured the team’s confidence. The sudden slump is beginning to spoil their great start to the season. Everton need a quick turn-around of fortunes. However, it will be hard for them against Arsenal. The Gunners are in prime form, having won all their last three matches comfortably. Moreover, Everton’s recent history against Arsenal is miserable: just one win in the last 19 games over a nine-year period. Still, Everton can play spoilsport in Arsenal’s title bid.

Other Interesting Matches
Manchester City vs Watford could be an interesting pick. City have lost both their previous fixtures in the EPL, while Watford defeated Everton last week. Watford do not boast of a great away record. Still, their speed and energy can unsettle even the best defences. The odds of a draw or a Watford win look attractive in online betting. But tread carefully, for Manchester City has enough quality in their ranks to stop the slide.
Manchester United too face a tricky fixture against Crystal Palace. The team will be in good mood following the 1-0 win over Tottenham last week. Palace have not been in great form. However, they have been scoring goals for fun. In fact, they have scored more goals in this season’s EPL than United. Palace have 27 goals to their credit, while United have only 20. The match will not be a walk in the park for Man U. Check out the online betting odds for this match at 12Bet.
