Premier League Week 9

Results / FixturesPremier League


Everton vs Arsenal Preview

For example, when Arsenal visit Goodison park this Sunday morning October 22nd at 8:30am EST both them and Everton will be coming off a Thursday Europa League game.

But what is the difference? The difference is that Arsenal played mostly reserves and still won, where as Everton played a strong lineup and still lost at home to Lyon.

What else is the difference? After 2 Europa League games so far this season, Arsenal have went to Stamford Bridge and outplayed Chelsea in a nil-nil draw and beat Brighton 2-0 with no stress.

Everton post Europa League have lost 4-0 away at Manchester United and 1-0 at home to Burnley. The Toffies have had issues this season Koeman still has not figured out the best approach. All factors being taken into account, Arsenal are undervalued.

Pick: Arsenal (-106) at BET365


Newcastle vs Crystal Palace

From top to bottom Crystal Palace have a very good squad. Most notably for them is the re-addition of Mamadou Sakho back to partner alongside Scott Dann in the centre of the Palace defense AND the return of Wilfred Zaha from injury.

In case you don't know much about Zaha, he is very good at football. Palace stumbled more than enough to begin the season and now need every point they can earn if they wish to stay in the Premier League. You should not go from beating Chelsea to losing to Newcastle in the span of a week. If this were the stock market, Hodgson's Eagles would have the Green Arrow pointing UP next to their symbol

Pick: Crystal Palace +0.5 (-110) at BET365


Tottenham vs Liverpool

Hypothetical question. What's more impressive; beating a lowly ranked side 7-0 or playing to a 1-1 draw with the best team on the planet?

Because both Liverpool and Tottenham put one of these feathers in their cap heading into this Sunday's showdown. Now be forewarned that four of the past five meetings between these sides and these managers have gone under 2.5 goals.

But that goes out the window this Sunday morning at 11am. The game is not at White Hart Lane or Anfield, it's on that monstrous Wembley pitch and to add another iron to the fire, Spurs fans have been trying to block Liverpool supporters from buying tickets...good luck with that.

Sunday will not disappoint. Players will be flying all over the field, the stands will be hostile and there will be goals

Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-154) at BET365


Potential LEANS to keep an eye on this weekend

  • Antonio Conte is frustrated and Chelsea are hobbled. In form Watford offer value going to Stamford Bridge.
  • Boring Jose Mourinho is back and Manchester United Unders may be winning more often than losing over the next few weeks.
  • Guardiola called this incarnation of Napoli one of the best teams he has ever faced as a manager. Napoli are 8/5 favorites this Saturday when they host Inter Milan.
