Matchweek Thirteen

 

Arsenal ($1.44) vs Newcastle United ($6.50) – Saturday 27th November @11:30pm AEDT

Arsenal host Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium, with the Toon still winless this league campaign.

Newcastle, who recently became the world’s richest club following the Saudi-backed takeover, are bottom of the Premier League but showed signs of life following a 3-3 draw against Brentford.

Arsenal were dished a reality check at the hands of Liverpool last weekend, with the Gunners being thrashed 4-0 away at Anfield.

Prior to the heavy defeat away at Merseyside, Arsenal were winning these kind of games with relative ease, so Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to bounce back swiftly.

 

Team News

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney looks set to replace Nuno Taveres at left-back.

Thomas Partey remains in doubt, just as he did last weekend coming into the Liverpool game.

 

Best Bets

Over/Under Goals:  Over 2.5 ($1.59)

 

Crystal Palace ($2.10) vs Aston Villa ($3.40) – Sunday 28th November @2:00am AEDT

Crystal Palace welcome Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at Selhurst Park on Sunday morning.

The new Villa boss started his tenure in brilliant fashion, beating Brighton 2-0 at Villa Park last fixture.

Crystal Palace are enjoying a promising start to the Patrick Vierra era, sitting 10th and with a positive goal difference.

Victory here for the Eagles could see the climb as high as 8th after full-time, pending on the results of other fixtures.

Team News

Palace midfielder James Macarthur looks set to spend a lengthy time the sidelines, following an injury sustained against Wolves a fortnight ago.

Nathan Ferguson could be in contention for a first team berth.

 

Best Bets

Match Result: Crystal Palace ($2.10)

 

Liverpool ($1.28) vs Southampton ($10) – Sunday 28th November @2:00 am AEDT

Liverpool have the chance to jump to second, should they defeat Southampton at Anfield on Sunday morning.

The Reds continued their impressive European form midweek, sweeping Porto aside 2-0 at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp now has the luxury of resting first team players in their last Champions League game if he chooses, having secured qualification to the knockout stage.

Southampton can climb into the top half of the table if they upset Liverpool, pending on other results.

Though the Saints were beaten 2-1 away last weekend to struggling Norwich, Southampton are in decent form, having won three of their last five games.

 

Team News

Roberto Firmino and Harvey Elliot remain sidelined with long-term injuries, though Naby Keita and James Milner could both be in contention for selection.

 

Best Bets

Anytime scorer: Diego Jota ($2.10)
