The Manchester clubs are gearing up to pull away from the rest of the teams in the leadership table of the EPL, as it enters its third week. Chelsea and Tottenham are trying hard to catch up with them, while the other usual contenders like Liverpool and Arsenal are struggling badly. This week does not offer any heavyweight clashes, but there are enough matches to keep you interested in online betting.
West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur
Burnley vs Huddersfield Town
Everton vs Bournemouth
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace
Southampton vs Manchester United
Stoke City vs Chelsea
Swansea City vs Watford
Leicester City vs Liverpool
Brighton and Hove Albion vs Newcastle United
Arsenal vs West Bromwich Albion
Marquee Match of the Week
Liverpool’s away fixture against Leicester is the most interesting match of the weekend. On first look, it might appear like an easy outing for Liverpool. Even the online betting odds suggest Liverpool are the clear-cut favourites. But Leicester defeated Liverpool 2-0 in a league cup match just a few days ago. Leicester City will be confident of pulling of an encore. While Liverpool fans will hope that a full-strength team will be good enough to earn three points against Leicester. The odds for a Leicester win look irresistibly attractive though.
Other Interesting Fixtures
All the big teams have relatively easy fixtures. Expect Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham to secure easy three points from their respective fixtures. Watford, who were drubbed by Manchester City last week, will be looking forward to regain their winning touch against Swansea in an away fixture. Watford will have an edge. But Swansea can be a ferocious opponent when on song at home. All the results have attractive odds.
Brighton vs Newcastle on Sunday is a similarly low-profile but one which offers excellent odds for all three results. Brighton, who has had a good opening in premier league this season, will fancy their chances against Newcastle in their re-entry after many years. It would not be easy for them, as other teams are likely to figure out their strengths and weaknesses by now.
