Matchweek Twelve

 

Leicester City ($4.50) vs Chelsea ($1.72) – Saturday 20th November @11:30pm AEDT

Table-topping Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday night at 11:30pm.

The west Londoners sit three points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, though they were held last league match to a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley.

Leicester’s season has been very much stop-start, with a huge amount of injuries plaguing the Foxes, including key defenders Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans.

A win for Leicester could see them jump from 11th to 6th, while Chelsea could be sitting two games clear of title rivals Manchester City with victory in the East Midlands.

 

Team News

Both attackers Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku are battling to be fit for the trip to Leicester on Saturday, though Mason Mount could return following dental surgery.

Newcastle United ($2.60) vs Brentford ($2.62) – Sunday 21st November @2:00 am AEDT

The Eddie Howe era at Newcastle begins on Sunday morning as the Magpies welcome Brentford to St James’s Park.

The former Bournemouth manager was appointed on Tyneside after the departure of Steve Bruce, following the aftermath of the Saudi-backed takeover the club.

Brentford will be looking to end a run of four successive defeats that has seen the West Londoners plunge from relative safety to fourteenth.

Despite all of Newcastle’s newfound riches, they are yet to win a league game this season and the Toon must get moving soon if they are to avoid the indignity of being the richest club in the world playing in the second tier of English football.

 

Team News

Newcastle come into the fixture with few injury concerns, though Paul Dummett is still recovering from injury.

For Brentford, David Raya and Josh Dasilva are out until 2022, while Mathias Jensen tested positive to Covid-19 before the international break.

Liverpool ($1.44) vs Arsenal ($6) – Sunday 21st November @4:30am AEDT

Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield at 4:30am Sunday.

The Merseysiders suffered their first defeat of the season in a 3-2 thriller at West Ham last league game.

Meanwhile, Arsenal continue their resurgence following a slow start to the season. The north Londoners are now eight games unbeaten and can leapfrog Liverpool into the top four with victory here.

The jury is still out on Arsenal manager Mikael Arteta, with detractors unconvinced of his side’s recent vein of form due to the opposition they have played. The trip to Anfield will be an acid test of his side’s top four credentials.

Team News

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is in doubt for the game, following a hamstring injury sustained on international duty.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looks set to be selected in the first eleven, dismissing concerns of an injury.
