It was all smiles for Klopp and his men as they collected all three points at Anfield on Sunday. The Reds now moved up to fourth place, superseding Arsenal with five points, however, the Gunners have two games in hand. League leaders Chelsea still hold a 10 point lead over Tottenham but will need to ensure to collect as many points as possible from their next five games, both Manchesters are up on the fixtures list. Manchester City’s most recent stumble against Stoke was another dent in City’s chase for title aspirations and with just 11 games to play, Pep Guardiola will need to ensure his side will be playing in Europe next season. Liverpool are sitting dangerously close for comfort for City, Guardiola will need his men to win their game in hand for the squad to release a huge and collective sigh of relief. We’ll take a closer look at the betting information you should analyse before placing a bet on the Premier League for the weekend.
Bet on Chelsea
Chelsea have shown great discipline, strength and competitive spirit so far this season and totally deserve the top spot of the Premier League table. Chelsea now travel to Stoke with the aim of securing their third consecutive victory and with odds of 4/7 to win the game, it’s a bet worth considering to add to your accumulator. Chelsea are the second highest scoring team in the Premier League and having their attacking prowess in great form, goals will be on every Premier League betting enthusiast when Chelsea play.
Conte’s men have an excellent record on the road, winning 9 of their 14 matches played and will be looking to collect all three points as they continue their quest for Premier League domination. Stoke only managed to find the net in two games form their last five and with Chelsea’s defence being compared to a fortress, betting on both teams to score might not be the best option. Chelsea, along with Tottenham, have conceded the least goals of all Premier League teams, with just 20. Odds for one team to score are priced at 19/25. Costa is the man to keep an eye out for, as he sits in third of the top scorer table of the Premier League with 17 goals.
Bet on Tottenham
Tottenham will be looking for their third consecutive win as they prepare to host Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon. Odds are set at 18/25 for the Spurs to emerge victorious, but will need to perform at their best to beat their in-form opponents. Harry Kane is the man with the plan, having scored 19 goals for the Spurs this season and assisted with another four. Tottenham are unbeaten at home this season and are now on a nine winning streak at White Hart Lane. Three of their last five home games finished with a two or more goal difference, which makes handicap betting on Tottenham a bet well worth considering, especially with odds priced at 19/10. The Saints’ form on the road has been a little shaky, having lost seven times already this season. Spurs haven’t conceded many goals at home this season, and have managed to keep clean sheets in four of their last five matches at home. Betting on both teams to score might not be the best option, but odds for one team to score are priced at 26/25.
Bet on Manchester City vs Liverpool
Manchester City do have what it takes to be at the top of the table, but their inconsistency in the Premier League has kept them 10 points away from league leaders Chelsea. They stumbled against Stoke at the Etihad Stadium in what was supposedly been a routine win, although Stoke have proved to be troublesome to many big teams over the years. Liverpool on the other hand, secured back to back wins after beating Burnley at Anfield, shooting the Reds morale through the roof as they prepare for one of their biggest clashes of the season.
Manchester City are the favourites as expected, and odds are currently priced at 19/20 to win the game, a price well worth adding to your accumulator. Liverpool and Manchester City have found the net 113 times between them this season, and if history does repeat itself, we’ll have a game full of goals, as we saw in the first round of this fixture. Both teams to score is priced at 13/25 while over 2.5 goals has odds set at 3/5.
