EPL Betting Preview & Tips | Matchday 13

Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion 

The Baggies will travel north to face City on Wednesday, December 16 at 7:00am (All times AEST).

Midweek football is back, and hopefully with it comes City’s dominant form, with the Manchester giants set to host West Brom at the Etihad.

City currently sit in ninth place, albeit with a game in hand, and have been starved of points in comparison with past seasons, sitting six points off the top of the table.

Following on from the snore-fest that was the Manchester Derby, CIty will welcome the relegation placed Baggies who haven’t beaten the SKy Blues in the Premier League since 2008.

That run includes 15 wins for City across the past 16 fixtures, with a single draw coming on Boxing Day in 2011.

That confidence should roll into this Wednesday as the Baggies continue to struggle keeping balls out of their own net.

The Midlands club have conceded 25 goals from their opening 12 fixtures, three goals more than any other top flight side.

With Liverpool and Tottenham set to face-off midweek, a win against the Baggies will be a vital three points for Manchester City in reducing their gap to the peak of the table.

Can West Brom jump out of the relegation zone? Or will it be another day at the office for Man. City?

Liverpool vs Tottenham

The top two sides in England will battle it out at Anfield on Thursday, December 17 at 7:00am.

It will be a mouth-watering midweek clash between Liverpool and Tottenham, with the top place in the Premier League on the line for the victor.

Both clubs stumbled in their chances to push above the other in matchweek 12, with both clubs being held to draws and moving to 25 points for their campaigns.

The Reds have won their past five fixtures over the Spurs across all competitions and will look to add to their record-breaking undefeated run at Anfield.
The Merseyside club will face their toughest 90 minutes of the season yet as they welcome top-placed Tottenham, who haven’t seen defeat in the league since the opening weekend.

Liverpool will be without star recruit Diogo Jota for the clash, while leading defender Joel Matip is in a race against the clock to be fit.If the Cameroonian half-back is to miss Thursday’s fixture, it could be another day out for star Spurs duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.

The pair have become the most lethal duo in world football this season and will need to be at their very best once again if they are to upset the reigning champions.

Can the Spurs put an end to the Anfield run? Or will the Reds reclaim top spot?

Sheffield United vs Manchester United

The Blades will host Manchester United on Friday, December 18 at 7:00am.

The Red Devils will travel to Bramall Lane on Friday as they prepare to face cellar-dwellers Sheffield United, who have registered one point from their opening 12 fixtures.

After a sensational return to the top flight last season, Chris Wilder’s men have failed to find the same spark, going without a win so far this season and potentially facing an eighth straight loss in the Premier League.

The Blades managed to hold the Red Devils to a 3-3 draw in this fixture last season, but with a major drop in form this time around, Manchester United could be extending their undefeated Premier League streak against Sheffield that dates back to 1992.

Despite a lethargic performance against their crow-town rivals on the weekend, Man. United have looked somewhat a better side over the past month despite sitting mid-table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men currently sit just one win away from the top four whilst holding a game in-hand.

The Red Devils have been inconsistent to start their 2020/21 campaign and will need to collect three points against the Blades this week if they are wanting to prove their worth in the top division.

United will return to Old Trafford for their highly-anticipated clash against Leeds on the weekend and will want to start their busty week on the right foot with a win in Sheffield.

Will the Blades claim their first win of the season? Or will United press higher up the table?
