Weekly EPL Tips 7th November 2021
Brentford – Norwich: Brentford Win (8/13)
Despite three consecutive defeats in the league, I still have to back Brentford this weekend. Of those defeats, two were by 1 goal margins against the league leaders Chelsea and a strong Leicester side. Norwich have been woeful all season and I’m finding it hard to find any argument for how they could manage even a point.
Southampton – Aston Villa: Aston Villa +0.5 goals (1/3)
Even though they currently sit in 15th, Villa have remarkably managed to score in all but one league game this season, that being against the leaders Chelsea. In their most recent home game, the Saints managed to let in two against a Burnley side they have been atrocious offensively all season. Villa pose much more of a threat than Burnley.
I Like Our Chances
Leeds – Leicester: Leicester Draw No Bet (4/5)
Before their defeat to Arsenal last time out, Rodgers’ side had managed to go four unbeaten, with the squad starting to gel. They’ll look to bounce back as they visit a Leeds side that are lacking a cutting edge without the injured Bamford. I expect Leicester to pile on the pressure and get the win.
Arsenal – Watford: Arsenal Winning at 60 mins (4/6)
The atmosphere around Arsenal has definitely been improving, something that obviously comes with positive results. The club have avoided defeat in September and October and looked strong against Leicester last week. In their last four games at home the Gunners have been leading by 25 minutes. Perhaps aware how quickly the fans get on their back if they don’t take a lead.
Manchester United – Manchester City: Manchester City to Win and Both Teams to Score. (21/10)
Following that shock defeat at home to Palace last week, Guardiola’s side will be extra motivated going into the derby. He won’t want to allow Chelsea to increase the five points already separating the two clubs. United are definitely beatable, rarely keeping a clean sheet but also always posing a threat offensively. Against teams like City, it’s hard to try and be so open, hoping to just outscore them.
West Ham – Liverpool: Liverpool to Win and Both Teams to Score (19/10)
Like City, I think Klopp will know how important it is to stop Chelsea pulling away. West Ham are causing everyone problems this season and though I think they’ll have enough to score, I fully expect a motivated Liverpool to outscore them and take the three points.
