Arsenal v Leicester Prediction & Betting Tips, 22nd October 2018

Arsenal

Arsenal v Leicester Premier League Preview, 22nd October 8.00pm

The Gunners are in a hot streak of form in the Premier League as they are on a six-match winning streak. It’s been a fantastic form from them and they will be favourites on home soil as they take on a Leicester side who have been struggling defensively. That having been said the Foxes have been scoring well. Read our Arsenal v Leicester betting tips for more.

Arsenal v Leicester Betting Odds*

Arsenal 4/9
Draw 7/2
Leicester 11/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)


Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners have proven to be the form team of the Premier League over the last half a dozen games. That’s because they have won six from six. So they are moving along very nicely and the goals are flowing from them well. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. Just before the international break, they secured a big 5-1 win out at Fulham. So more likely than not they will get their chances in this one and over 2.5 goals is a solid place to start at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Five of their eight league games have ended that way.

Arsenal have won each of their last three home games by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. You can back them at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). There is another trend running with them as well and that is that they have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in each of their last six games. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was only no the bench against Fulham because of fitness but is likely to get back to the starting line up. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are hit and miss most of the time and they have posted a W4 L4 record so far. They suffered a 2-1 home loss against Everton just before the international break. Their away form is mixed at W2 L2 so it’s hard to get a read on them. A clear positive is that they have been scoring well and have netted in all of their games played this season. So both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) makes decent sense to have a look at. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option.

The Foxes have produced seven goals away from home this season, three of their four games ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. There has been a consistent trend with them having scored at least two goals in each of their last three away games. 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.

Arsenal v Leicester Head to Head

There were great games between the two last season with eleven goals across the two meetings, which produced a home win. The Gunners took a 4-3 success over the Foxes at the Emirates and that leaves them on a seven-match winning streak on home soil against them. Do Leicester have not avoided a defeat at Leicester in the Premier League. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).

Who will win – Arsenal v Leicester Predictions

This could be a good competitive open game, but we have to back Arsenal who have been playing some really positive stuff. The defence of Leicester is still just a bit unreliable to be able to hold out. Home win & both teams to score.

Everton v Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting Tips, 21st October 2018

Everton

Everton v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 21st October 4.00pm

The Toffees have a good chance at three points at Goodison Park you imagine in this one. They recorded back to back wins for the first time this season just before the international break. They play host to Crystal Palace who are badly struggling in front of goal this season. Read our Everton v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.

Everton v Crystal Palace Betting Odds*

Everton 5/6
Draw 5/2
Crystal Palace 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)


Everton News and Form

For the first time this season Everton have landed back to back wins, with successes over Fulham and Leicester before the international break. They get back to home soil this weekend where they have a W2 D1 L1 record, the loss there happening in a dreadful performance against West Ham back in the middle of September.

But they recovered well in their next home game to smash Fulham. Everton have scored at least two goals in five of their eight league games now, so things are starting to come together. Gylfi Sigurdsson has been a big part of that with three goals in his last two games. Richarlison was also back on the scoresheet last time out in their win at Leicester.

Everton have conceded in their last five home games against the Eagles in the top flight, but we are going against that and backing both teams NOT to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018) because of how poor Palace have been in front of goal.

Everton are four points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign so they have made a step forward. Three of Everton’s four home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals, but again banking on the visitors not doing much, under the goal line could be the way to swing.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace are looking poor this season and with the goals not coming from Wilfried Zaha then there could be big trouble ahead for them. They have lost five of their last seven played now, picking up the four points in that sequence. Their two away wins which they have posted this season did happen away from home and were clean sheet victories too.

That was against Huddersfield and Fulham, two of the current bottom four in the league. Palace have failed to score in four of their eight games this season. Everton to win to nil is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018).

Palace have only netted the five goals this season, with only Huddersfield and Cardiff having managed fewer. Of those five, Zaha has three of them, but he has failed to score in Palace’s last three games. All five of Palace’s goals this season have come away from Selhurst Park.

Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels this term, 75% of them have been shipped in the second half of matches. Heading back into action only Newcastle and Cardiff have lost more Premier League matches than Palace have done this season (5). Palace haven’t kept a clean sheet at Goodison Park since 1992.

Everton v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Everton collected a good 3-1 home win over Palace in this corresponding fixture last season following a draw at Selhurst Park. That extended a good unbeaten streak they have over the Eagles. Everton are undefeated in their last seven league games against Palace, winning three of those. Everton have picked up a W1 D2 record in their last three Premier League home games against the Eagles. Four of the last six have ended under 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Everton v Crystal Palace Predictions

Even though Everton’s defence hasn’t looked great, Palace look lightweight. We have to roll with a home win to nil for our Everton v Crystal Palace predictions. This is a big chance for the Toffees to drive home an advantage.

Huddersfield v Liverpool Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th October 2018

Liverpool

Huddersfield v Liverpool Premier League Preview, 20th October 5.30pm

The Terriers get a really tough return to league action after the international break. They are still looking for their first win of the season and have to take on Liverpool. Will the rest have done the Reds good having drawn their last two before the break? Questions were arising about their star players not hitting their potential this season. Read our Huddersfield v Liverpool betting tips for more.

Huddersfield v Liverpool Betting Odds*

Liverpool 1/4
Draw 9/2
Huddersfield 11/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)


Huddersfield News and Form

The Terriers are still on the hunt for their first win of the season and it would be a stunning upset if they were to get it in this one. They have three points from three drawn matches so far only, one of them out at Burnley before the international break.

Their home form has seen them collect only the one point this season and punters are going to have a hard time finding positive to back them. Their last home game saw them suffer a 2-0 loss against Tottenham.

So that is a good indicator and a Liverpool 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Huddersfield have yet to come up with a home goal this season. So the option on both teams not to score has to have some value.

With the season settling down you can see the struggles that the Terriers are having. In total this season Huddersfield have produced only the four goals which leaves them as the joint lowest scorers alongside bottom club Cardiff heading back into the weekend.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool will be looking to get themselves up and running in winning ways again as they make the trip to Huddersfield. The Reds are W3 D1 on the road and their winning streak was snapped in a 1-1 tie at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in their last road game. That was also the first occasion this season that they had failed to score two goals in an away game.

Liverpool to win to nil is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) and is a popular option for Huddersfield v Liverpool betting tips. Their powerful front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah haven’t been as strong as they were last season.

Salah has just one goal in Liverpool’s last five league games now and has been extremely wasteful compared to his pinpoint accuracy last term. The Reds are facing a poor defence here and Salah is the 8/11 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, but has just one away goal all season* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).

Liverpool have conceded just the three away goals all season, two of them happening in the second half of matches. Liverpool have been ahead at half time in three of their four road games. A Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/ full-time bet is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).

Huddersfield v Liverpool Head to Head

It was all a bit too easy for Liverpool last season in the Premier League meetings with Huddersfield. The Reds produced a 3-0 win in both of their games against the Terriers. Those were the first league meetings since the 1971/72 old division one season.

Who will win – Huddersfield v Liverpool Predictions

It looks likely that the best Huddersfield could look for would be a point. Liverpool struggled in tougher fixtures before the break but otherwise have handled themselves well. We will settle on the away win & under 2.5 goals as Liverpool haven’t quite been at their fluent best.

Newcastle v Brighton Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th October 2018

Newcastle

Newcastle v Brighton Premier League Preview, 20th October 3.00pm

This is a huge game for Newcastle as they go on the hunt for their first win of the season. This could be an opportunity for them as they take on Brighton who have struggled to put away form together. Can the Magpies make their move as they enter an important phase of easier games than what they have been through so far? Read our Newcastle v Brighton betting tips for more.

Newcastle v Brighton Betting Odds*

Newcastle 23/20
Draw 11/5
Brighton 5/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)


Newcastle News and Form

It has been an immensely difficult season for Newcastle, but their fixture list hasn’t helped their cause. They have already faced five of the league’s big six in their opening eight matches. That has played a part in them still being on the hunt for their first win of the season. They have collected just the two points so far in two draws on the road. So there has not been any joy for them so far at St James’ Park. The Magpies have scored in three of their four home games, exactly one goal in each of those (which were all 2-1 losses).

Five of the six losses that Newcastle have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin. Just before the international break, they blew a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford against Manchester United to lose 3-2. Newcastle have conceded exactly two goals in each home game this term. But this now kicks off a run of much easier fixtures for them. This is where they need to make it count and a Newcastle 1-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). Each of their three games this season not against the big six sides have all ended under 2.5 goals so that is the way to go for Newcastle v Brighton betting tips.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton are six points better off than Newcastle are so this would be a fantastic opportunity to keep the Magpies further off their backs. The Seagulls have won twice this season in the top flight in a W2 D2 L4 record. Tehri second win of the season came just before the international break when they earned a good 1-0 home success over West Ham. Both of their league wins this term happened at home by a one-goal margin.

While their home form is pretty solid, they have not had a lot of joy out on their travels. They are just D1 L3 away from home this term and they have failed to score in three of their four road games. Newcastle to win to nil is at 12/5 odds and may be worth a flutter* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:01 pm). In two games against sides currently sat in the bottom five this season, the Seagulls drew both of them (Southampton and Fulham).

Newcastle v Brighton Head to Head

There were low scoring games between these last season with a 0-0 at St James’ Park following a 1-0 home win for Brighton. Those are the only two previous Premier League meetings. Newcastle are W2 D1 L1 in their last four league matches against Brighton now and have not conceded in their last two at home against the Seagulls.

Who will win – Newcastle v Brighton Predictions

The Magpies so desperately need a win to start turning the corner with their form. There has to be a good chance here on home soil against the Seagulls who have produced little on the road. Newcastle to win.

West Ham v Tottenham Prediction & Betting Tips, 20th October 2018

West Ham

West Ham v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 20th October 3.00pm

This should be an entertaining London derby to look forward too. West Ham will be looking for a big three points in this one as they face up to the Lilywhites. That would give them a fantastic lift. Buy Spurs return after the international break having put together a strong three-match winning streak. Read our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips for more.

West Ham v Tottenham Betting Odds*

Tottenham 4/5
Draw 13/5
West Ham 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)


West Ham News and Form

The Hammers had their little positive spurt of form snapped with a 1-0 defeat out at Brighton just before the international break. That leaves them W2 D1 L1 in their last four league games. That, in turn, was after losing their opening four games of the season. Their home form reads just W1 D1 L2 for the season, but are undefeated in their last two on home soil.

They picked up a draw against Chelsea and then banked that big 3-1 success over Manchester United. So they have held their own against some of the top sides at home this season. All of West Ham’s home games this season (including this one) have been against sides currently in the top half of the table.

Defensively they have only the one clean sheet this season so are going to be at risk. For our West Ham v Tottenham betting tips were are looking at both teams to score at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).

Recent games between these two have provided plenty of goals. Five of West Ham’s eight league games this season have made it above the goal line as well. They have won two of their last three games at home against Spurs and this would be a massive three points for them.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have put together a three-match winning streak, beating Brighton, Huddersfield and Cardiff. There are naturally going to be stiffer tests to come for them. Starting with this one and they won’t want to lose momentum in this London derby because next up for them comes Manchester City.

Tottenham have produced well on the road, winning four of their five away games. Their only blip was a 2-1 loss at Watford at the start of September. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).

That appeals for West Ham v Tottenham betting tips because Spurs have scored at least two goals in all but one of their away games this season. They have found the back of the net in all eight of their league games this season. 75% of Tottenham’s league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.

Spurs have averaged exactly two goals per away game this season, while they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of them. They have had some tight battles with West Ham recently though. Harry Kane is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:14 pm).

West Ham v Tottenham Head to Head

Tottenham got four points from their meetings with West Ham last season but they weren’t easy points. There was a 1-1 home draw for them after edging a tight away scrap 3-2. In the last four league meetings in this London derby, Spurs are W2 D1 L1 and they have lost two for their last three away trips to West Ham, both 1-0 losses. Five of the last eight games between them in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals.

Who will win – West Ham v Tottenham Predictions

The draw may not have some appeal in the game as West Ham have a good bit of home form behind them. They may well have enough in them to grind out a point and make life very difficult for the Lilywhites. Draw.

Wolves v Watford Premier League Preview, 20th October 3.00pm

Will Wolves have as successful of a time after the international break as they had before it? They return to league action in seventh place in the table and with a fantastic undefeated streak of form going. Watford had that bright start but have gone off the boil with just one point in their last four. Read our Wolves v Watford betting tips for more.

Wolves v Watford Betting Odds*

Wolves 8/11
Draw 11/4
Watford 7/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)


Wolves News and Form

Not even Wolves themselves would have expected to have produced such a strong start to the Premier League season after moving up a tier. They are W4 D3 L1 for the season and are undefeated in six games now. They are W4 D1 in their last five, the point in that sequence coming in a great performance at Old Trafford against Manchester United. All four of their wins this season have been with a clean sheet. Wolves to win to nil is not an unrealistic proposition at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm).

One of their last seven league games have managed to make it over 2.5 goals and that is largely down to their excellent defensive performances. Three of their last four wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline so that is a decent trend worth considering. A Wolves 1-0 option in the correct score market is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm). Five of the six league goals that they have come up with at Molineux this season have all been in the second half of matches.

Watford News and Form

Watford’s positive start to the season, where they won all four of their opening fixtures, has long since passed them by. They have subsequently taken one point from their last four games. They have failed to score in their last two games as well, suffering a big 4-0 thumping at home against Bournemouth just before the international break. So they are starting to feel some pressure. The Hornets are W1 D1 L1 so far from their three road games, the last two ending under 2.5 goals.

Both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 7:29 pm) as we are expecting this to be a tight battle. The worrying thing for Watford is their defence which has not earned a clean sheet since the opening fixture of the next season. They have conceded a total of ten goals in their last four games and with them having scored just two goals in their last four, they aren’t having enough punch going forward to cover up for their defence. Watford have conceded three of their four away goals in the second half of matches this season.

Wolves v Watford Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between the two sides since they were together in the 2014/15 Championship season. Wolves collected four points that season which included a 2-2 home draw. Wolves are undefeated in their last three home games against Watford, winning one of those. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings and four of those six have made it over 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Wolves v Watford Predictions

It appears to be another good opportunity to back Wolves to come away with a positive result. They have done such good things this season that we can see value in them on home soil in getting another return. Home win.

Manchester City 1/14
Draw 10/1
Burnley 33/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)


Manchester City News and Form

League leaders Manchester City will be looking to extend their winning form on home soil in the Premier League this season. They have won all four at the Etihad so far, scoring a total of thirteen in those four. So that’s a good average output and a Manchester City 2-0 correct score is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). That gives them a good comfortable return after the international break. Manchester City have now won twenty of their last twenty-three (D2 L1) home games in the Premier League.

Raheem Sterling had a great game for England in their win over Spain on Monday and so his spirits should be high. He is at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm). With the Citizens having collected a clean sheet in each of their last four games in the top flight, the natural temptation for Manchester City v Burnley betting tips is to back a home win to nil. City have not conceded a second-half goal at home this season and another decent proposition would be to back a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager.

Burnley News and Form

After picking up one point in their opening five games of the season, the Clarets were turning the corner well with a W2 D1 record in their three games before the international break. That gave them a great lift and they scored seven goals in those three games. They have a tough couple of games to get through now as they will face Chelsea after having met the Citizens. Just because the Clarets may not see too much of the ball both teams NOT to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).

Away from Turf Moor, this season Burnley are W1 D1 L2 so far and they have given up a total of six goals and have failed to score in two for their four road games. In total home and away, they have only the two clean sheets this season. The Clarets have been at 0-0 at half time in three of their four away games this season. We don’t see that being a very likely outcome in this one. Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:33 pm).

Manchester City v Burnley Head to Head

Manchester City collected a 3-0 win over Burnley in last season’s corresponding fixture. They also took a 4-1 home win over the Clarets in the FA Cup. City are W2 D2 in their four previous Premier League home games against Burnley but have won the last two. From the previous eight Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Manchester City are W4 D3 L1 against Burnley.

Who will win – Manchester City v Burnley Predictions

Manchester City are running so well at home and have won their last two league games there to nil. We are going to suggest riding that trend and backing Manchester City to win to nil in this fixture.

Read our Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips for more.

Bournemouth v Southampton Betting Odds*

Bournemouth 21/20
Draw 23/10
Southampton 13/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)


Bournemouth News and Form

It has been a great season from Bournemouth so far with a W5 D1 L2 record on the board. That has been enough to see them start up again after the international break in sixth place in the table. This could be a good home game for them too as they face up to their south coast rivals who are out of form. The Cherries have won back to back games so are looking for their third straight fixture in a row.

Bournemouth have not put on a great defensive show this season but are appealing at 11/4 to win to nil* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 5:41 pm). They are undefeated at home this season with a tremendously positive W3 D1 record on the board.

They have scored at least two goals in each of their league home games as well. So in Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips a 2-0 correct score for the home side looks a decent proposition at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).

Of the ten home goals that they have come up with this season, four of them have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They have yet to concede a single goal in the first half of any home game this term. A Bournemouth half time win should, therefore, have some decent appeal.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints have been having a tough time of things again this season and pressure is on boss Mark Hughes for sure. They have just the one victory this season and they head back into action on a three-match losing streak. The reading in that gets worse because they failed to score in any of those three losses.

Both teams not to score is at 11/10 odds for Bournemouth v Southampton predictions* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Southampton have posted a W1 L3 record this season on their travels, having lost their last two (again without scoring) at Liverpool and the newly promoted Wolves.

They have shipped at least two goals in each of their three away defeats this season and although they avoided defeat against the Cherries last term they may have difficulties in doing so again. Southampton have scored just six goals this season, the joint third-lowest tally in the top flight so far.

Bournemouth v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton collected four points from their two games against Bournemouth last season. In the six previous Premier League meetings between the two south coast sides, Southampton are W3 D2 L1 against the Cherries. Bournemouth are W1 D1 L1 in their three home games against Southampton. Two of the six Premier League meetings made it over 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Bournemouth v Southampton Predictions

The Cherries are more likely to acquit themselves better to the task at hand and you can see the Saints just turning up and trying to contain. Bournemouth are bold enough in attack to break their rivals. Home win.

Cardiff v Fulham Premier League Preview, 20th October 3.00pm

There will be big survival points up for grabs down in south Wales when Cardiff and Fulham meet on the weekend. The Bluebirds are stuck at the foot of the table horribly out of form. But regardless they could pull level on points with Fulham with a win. The Cottagers have the worst defensive record in the top flight so far. Read our Cardiff v Fulham betting tips for more.

Cardiff v Fulham Betting Odds*

Cardiff 29/20
Fulham 19/10
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)


Cardiff News and Form

The Bluebirds have not adapted well to life in the top flight and are on a five-match losing streak at the moment. They are D2 L6 for the season so far and they have shipped at least two goals in each of those losses. Cardiff have failed to get on the scoresheet this season in five of their eight games. On each of the three occasions that they did, they lost each of those games. This is a big opportunity for them against another struggler to at least try and get something going.

Both teams not to score in this one is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Cardiff’s home form is D1 L3 and they are on a three-match losing streak on home soil, conceding ten goals in their last three in South Wales. If they let Fulham, who are fourth from bottom get away from them after this game, Cardiff, who are already favourites to get relegated are going to be in even bigger trouble.

Fulham News and Form

The Cottagers are three points better off than Cardiff are and have tasted victory this season. That was back at the end of August though and they are winless in their last five (D2 L3). The problem with the Cottagers is their defence. They play an open and attractive game and like to knock the ball around nicely, but they are wide, wide open at the back. They have the worst defensive record in the top flight and have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their league outings this season.

But will the limited Cardiff attack have enough to hurt them? Under 2.5 goals is the appealing option at even money* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Both of these sides will see the importance of not suffering a loss in this one and it could be a tight scrap. Fulham’s away form is D1 L3 for the season and they have failed to score in their last two on the road, which were difficult ones at Manchester City and then Everton.

Cardiff v Fulham Head to Head

There were four points collected by Fulham last season in their Championship meetings with Cardiff including a big 4-2 win over the Bluebirds down in South Wales. Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven games against Cardiff in all competitions with a W3 D4 record on the board. Five of the last six meetings have surprisingly produced at least three goals in them. There have been thirteen goals in the last three clashes in Wales.

Who will win – Cardiff v Fulham Predictions

We are going to go with the away win here. You have two very contrasting styles but Fulham have the bigger potential of coming up with the goal, even if they are likely to get knocked around a bit. Away win.

Chelsea News and Form

It has been a long time since Chelsea lost at home in the league against Manchester United and they will fancy their chances here. Chelsea are undefeated across their eight games this season in the top flight, posting a W6 D2 record. They posted a comfortable 3-0 win out at Southampton before the international break with Eden Hazard once again the star of the show. He is in red-hot scoring form this season and while that continues he has to be worth backing at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). If he can help lift Chelsea to a win they would move ten points clear of Manchester United.

The Blues have posted a W3 D1 record so far on home soil, their winning streak ended in a tie against Liverpool in their last home game. Chelsea have been showing a very strong offensive hand this season and they have scored at least two goals in each of their victories in the top flight this season. They have earned a clean sheet in four of their eight league fixtures so far. A Chelsea 1-0 correct score option is appealing at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) but you could, of course, cover everything with a Chelsea to win to nil option.

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils hold a W4 D1 L3 record for the season and narrowly bagged a 3-2 win at home over Newcastle just before the international break, having been 2-0 down at half time. They got the result but the defensive frailties of their set up were again exposed. Manchester United did lose their last away game which was at West Ham leaving them with a W2 L2 record away from home. They have scored exactly two goals in three of their four away games. However, we are going to side with this one going under 2.5 goals at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).

Across the course of the season, the Red Devils have managed to take just the one clean sheet so there are clear problems at the back there. Only Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff have conceded more goals than United have done this term. Away from home, they have conceded an average of 1.75 goals per game. They have scored 71% and have conceded 71% of their away goals in the first half of away matches. Romelu Lukaku has failed to score in his last three league games and he is down the pecking order at 5/2 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Currency Manchester United are seven points worse off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.

Chelsea v Manchester United Head to Head

Last season there was a home win for each in the Premier League. On top of that, Chelsea won the FA Cup final against the Red Devils. Looking specifically at the premier league form between the two recently, none of the last ten have produced an away win. Chelsea are W4 D1 in their last five league home games against the Red Devils. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings in all competitions. Just two of the last ten in all competitions have made it above the 2.5 goal line.

Who will win – Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions

Chelsea look more organised, far more committed and energetic and upbeat than Manchester United do. We have to side with the form team in this one for our Chelsea v Manchester United predictions. Home win.
