Arsenal stays two factors away from Manchester metropolis for the very biggest spot inside the EPL after MatchWeek 14, whereas Chelsea continues to be inside the very biggest 6 struggling a 4-1 loss to Brighton final week. Who do you want on this matchup and why?
Paul Carr: Arsenal are legit, rating a shade behind Manchester metropolis in most underlying numbers this season. Chelsea have not been legit, sitting thirteenth in anticipated-aim distinction this season (-three.1) and conceding the third-biggest pictures of any Premier League staff. With all of Chelsea’s harm factors, I lean Arsenal on this one (+a hundred and eighty), although i might considerably have a value nearer to +200.
Daniel Thomas: i am unable to anticipate this sport. Arsenal have been so spectacular up to now this season and might go into this tie rightly full of confidence. Chelsea suffered their first defeat underneath Graham Potter in opposition to Brighton the place they have been woeful, particularly on the again. I count on Arsenal to take benefit of these frailties this weekend and that i assume the Gunners will get the win.
Dalen Cuff: i am on Arsenal to win too. They’re the greater squad and know what their supervisor wants of them individually and collectively. can’t say the identical for Chelsea, as Potter nonetheless tinkers with methods/personnel.

Fulham seems to get again to their worthwhile methods as they journey to Etihad Stadium to face defending champions Manchester metropolis. Fulham is on a 4-match unbeaten streak and have shortly climbed up the desk to seventh. Do you simply like the Lilywhites to get it accomplished this week or will Pep Guardiola’s squad get the victory?
Carr: With each teams rating inside the very biggest 4 in complete targets per sport this season, scoring is clearly anticipated on the Etihad, as a end result of the worth on over three.5 targets suggests (-a hundred and fifty). i might considerably play each teams to discover (-one hundred fifteen), since Fulham aren’t a pack-it-in variety of staff, even on the road. They’ve had no decrease than eight pictures and zero.7 anticipated targets in all six away video games this season, scoring in opposition to each Arsenal and Tottenham. metropolis will rating, as they’ve accomplished in every residence sport this season, and that i assume Fulham nicks one too.
Thomas: metropolis to thrash Fulham. Erling Haaland or not, count on an monumental win.
Cuff: Paul laid out the related stats. I additionally count on targets and like each teams to discover however additionally including metropolis to win on that for extra worth at +a hundred thirty.
The Tottenham Hotspur want to hold amongst extreme teams on the EPL desk whereas Liverpool hopes for at biggest a fourth-place finish after a horrible start to the season. Can the Hotspur revenue from Liverpool’s struggles on the road or will Jürgen Klopp’s membership pull off the upset?
Carr: Even after Liverpool’s 2-zero win over Napoli, i am unable to take the Reds right here. Tuesday’s sport was at Anfield, and Liverpool stays winless in away league video games this season (two attracts, three losses), collectively with a surprising loss at Nottingham Forest two weeks in the past. it is not as if Liverpool have been unfortunate, not with an anticipated aim distinction of -2.2 in these 5 away video games. Tottenham have been good at White Hart Lane this season, worthwhile 5 of six league video games, however have not confronted any of the commonplace extreme six teams there but. Son Heung-Min‘s absence makes the draw (+265) rather extra possible, and that is my play.
Thomas: relies upon which Spurs turns up. They hold forgetting to play inside the predominant half, which might have price them dearly in latest matches. Liverpool have misplaced to Forest and Leeds going into this match, however I simply have the sensation the Reds can take all three factors from North London.
Cuff: I actually do not know what to make of this sport. Anytime I’ve anticipated Liverpool to carry out they’ve not, and when betting in opposition to they appear to be the staff we thought they have been preseason. No Son Heung-Min hurts Spurs little question and that i assume a draw is in all probability going, however Liverpool’s away variety is caught in my head. Good worth for Spurs at residence on the two-means market (+a hundred thirty Spurs Draw No wager).
What are you taking a look at inside the various European leagues?
Thomas: There might even be some worth on Gerard Pique to discover on his remaining residence sport ever for Barca. probably there’ll possible be a ceremonial pen that he’d be allowed to take earlier than going off into the Catalan sundown.
what’s your biggest wager for the weekend?
Carr: As standard, i am going with each teams to discover in a Leicester metropolis away sport (-a hundred thirty), this one at Everton on Saturday. The Foxes by some means did not concede a aim of their 4-zero win at Wolves two weeks in the past, regardless of permitting 21 pictures and a pair of.1 anticipated targets. Now they face an Everton side that seems to have a great protection, having allowed 12 targets this season, fourth-fewest inside the league. nonetheless the Toffees have given up 19.6 non-penalty anticipated targets, second-most inside the league. With two defenses that are not glorious, I count on each teams to get no decrease than one aim right here.
