Marquee Match of the Week

Liverpool’s battle against Manchester City at home will attract all the eyeballs and the online betting interest this week. Liverpool are placed second, while City are third, with only one point separating the teams. Both the teams have won their previous three matches. City has a better-looking team on paper. Liverpool minus Philippe Coutinho, who has not recovered from the injury, do look inferior to Manchester City. However, Liverpool back themselves against the big attacking teams. Liverpool has the pressing game to topple such teams. Moreover, City’s record against Liverpool at Anfield is awful: just two wins in the last 60 years. The match is expected to be a riveting high-scoring thriller. Check out the odds for a draw in online betting.

Other Interesting Fixtures

Arsenal play against Crystal Palace at home. Palace’s new coach Sam Allardyce has had a good record against Arsenal. However, this is a new team and a new beginning. Palace seems to have lost their last few years’ solidity in defence. They will have to regain that if they are looking for some positive from this fixture.

Leicester City host West Ham. The reigning champions can be tested severely. The Hammers have stitched together three straight wins. While Leicester could start favourites for this match, West Ham will fancy their chances against a team that has lost won just one of its last five matches. The odds of a West Ham win in online betting is attractive too.
