Welcome to our predictions for the 15th Premier League round. The last one was quite eventful as it saw Liverpool increase their advantage over Manchester City on the table. The Anfield side narrowly edged out Brighton while City failed to win against Newcastle. Chelsea lost against the Hammers which was their 2nd loss in a row. On the other hand, Tottenham have now connected 2 wins since Mourinho took over. Thanks to other results going in their favor, the Spurs managed to climb to the 5th position on the table in just 2 Premier League rounds. In other news, Manchester United and Arsenal failed to win yet another match. However, more about that below in our Premier League predictions.
Burnley vs Manchester City >> click here for live odds
Burnley are having a very good season so far even though they have lost 3 matches in the last 5 rounds. They are sitting 10th on the table while being just 2 points off the 5th spot. Their performances at home have been really strong as they have already stunned some of the best teams in the league. However, facing Manchester City at the moment might be too big of a task for Burnley. The Citizens have dropped a lot of points recently and they will be travelling for all 3 points on Tuesday.
Guardiola’s squad is having problems with injuries which is why they are struggling and dropping points. In their last 5 fixtures in all competitions, City have gotten just one victory. Additionally, this fixture has been always tight for Manchester’s blues. Last year they got a narrow 0:1 victory while the one before that finished with a draw. However, this time around, City can’t afford to drop any points so they will have to bring their A game.
Quality wise, City are absolute favorites for this one. However, the way they are performing at the moment suggests Burnley could be capable of surprising them. Nevertheless, City will go in the match all guns blazing which is why we are backing a 1.50 Asian Handicap outcome.
Manchester United vs Tottenham >> click here for live odds
This is the first highly exciting feature that comes with the 15th Premier League round. This year it will be even more exciting due to Mourinho being appointed as the new Tottenham coach. His short tenure at United finished with a lot of drama and United fans don’t really like him which will surely be shown during the match on Wednesday. The Red Devils are having huge performance problems at the moment. They concede goals way too easily while their opportunities up front are very few. Even the ones they do create, United’s attackers fail to capitalize on those goal chances.
Tottenham were in a similar situation just a couple of weeks ago. However, it seems that the new coach brought exactly what they needed. They Spurs have connected 2 victories and are back in the TOP 6 in just 2 rounds. Now they need to face United and Mourinho will surely love to defeat his old employers. Last year, the Spurs won this fixture 0:1 in what was a very tight affair. As a matter of fact, this fixture was decided by a single goal in the last 4 Premier League seasons.
The Spurs are in a better position at the moment while United look nothing like a coherent team. Rounds go by and they keep disappointing their fans. One statistic that goes in their favor is that they have lost this fixture only once since 2015. However, it’s not going to be easy for them to win on Wednesday. For that reason, we are backing a Both Teams to Score outcome.
Liverpool vs Everton >> click here for live odds
Last but not least, we have the first Merseyside derby of the season. Liverpool go in this one as absolute favorites since they are the only undefeated side in the Premier League. Klopp has to worry about several injuries but the Anfield side is still going strong in all competitions. As a matter of fact, Everton haven’t won a derby against Liverpool in the Premier League since 2010. Additionally, this particular fixture where Liverpool plays at home hasn’t been won by the Toffees since 1999. Those are 20 long years where Liverpool have asserted their dominance over the Merseyside derby.
On the other hand, Everton are in a very bad position at the moment. They have just 1 win in the last 5 rounds. In the last round, they led against Leicester for most of the match but still lost due to a late stoppage time goal. The Toffees are now sitting just two points of the relegation zone. However, if they lose to Everton on Wednesday while Southampton wins their match, Everton will be relegation bound for the first time in years. Their squad quality suggests Everton should be among the contenders for a TOP 6 position; however, their performances have been nothing close to that.
Performance and quality wise, Liverpool are absolute favorites for this fixture. Nevertheless, a Merseyside derby is always a very exciting match and a great performance from both sides is expected. Everton are desperate at the moment and they will try their best to get a positive result against Liverpool. That’s why we are backing a Both Teams to Score outcome.
