Following yet another disappointing defeat at Wolverhampton, Chelsea will look to get back on track when they welcome Brighton to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Scrolling through the headlines, one would typically just pass this game up, but don’t dare scroll past this one.
Here is my comprehensive list of picks for each match. If you’re interested, you can read my analysis of the three most intriguing games for this weekend: Manchester United vs. Everton, Tottenham Hotspur vs. Brighton & Hove Albion, and Liverpool vs. Arsenal.
A must-watch game awaits us all this weekend as league leaders Arsenal will hop on a bus to take on Liverpool at the fortress they call Anfield.
Tottenham have not had a single clean sheet in a 10:00 AM game this season and they are conceding an average of 2 goals per game at this time. Meanwhile, Brighton are averaging over 2 goals per game at 10:00 AM. Could this mean something?
Get some baked beans and blood sausage for an early morning English breakfast as Everton head to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in this weekend’s early match.
Everton are coming into this game as underdogs but you can’t necessarily count them out. Everton have won 3 of their 4 home games under new manager Sean Dyche, all by a 1-0 scoreline, indicating a desire to sit back and make their opponents work to find a goal. Everton are averaging 38% ball possession under manager Sean Dyche. Will the interim Tottenham manager find a plan to work the ball and break down Everton’s stubborn defense?
Newcastle United have managed to win back to back games for the first time in 2023 and have only managed 3 total wins this calendar year. But, just because they aren’t necessarily winning doesn’t mean they are losing. They have only lost 1 game at home this season and only Brentford (12) have drawn more games than Newcastle (11) in the Premier League this season.
I don’t expect Livepool to dominate possession. I have a feeling they are going to drop back and use the pace of Salah, Nunez, and Gakpo on the counter. Manchester City do have a tendency to leave open spaces at the back and Liverpool do have the talent to exploit that space.
