Tottenham vs Manchester City Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Tottenham:
Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Bale, Lo Celso, Son; Kane

Manchester City:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Torres, Jesus, Sterling

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Manchester City to North London in the most interesting match this weekend in the Premier League. The Spurs will be extremely motivated as the victory here could see them climbing on the first position until at least Sunday. At the same time this will be a clash between old rivals, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola. The Special One is aiming to win successive competitive fixtures against Guardiola for the first time in his career. Tottenham finally pleased the fans. The actual form is very good, they won the last three matches in the Premier League. First they beat Burnley thanks to a late goal scored by Harry Kane. The second victory was obtain against Brighton. The Spurs won 2:1 after Gareth Bale netted in the 73rd minute, while the first goal came from penalty converted by Kane. In the last match before the international break Tottenham beat West Bromwich Albion. Once again it was a narrow victory, once again the winning goal was scored in the finish of the match and once again the scorer was Kane. He has been involved in 23 goals in his 14 appearances across all competitions this season. The atmosphere in the squad is excellent. Mourinho has the key players available, but Matt Doherty is in isolation after he tested positive for coronavirus. Steven Bergwijn wasn't involved in Netherlands matches due to injury and he is rated as doubtful for this game. Erik Lamela is also doubtful due to a foot injury, while Tanguy Ndombele has recovered.

Manchester City didn't started the season according to the expectations, though they are in good form in the last period. The Citizens have three victories and just one draw on the last four matches in all competitions. They managed to beat Marseille with 3:0 in the Champions League thanks to goals scored by Ferran Torres, Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling. The next victory came at Sheffield United in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola's men weren't superior, but still won 1:0 thanks to Kyle Walker's goal. City then beat the Greek champions Olympiakos with 3:0 in the Champions League. Ferran Torres, Jesus Gabriel and Joao Cancelo found the back of the net on that match. Manchester City faced Liverpool before the international break. The derby ended with an 1:1 draw, though the Citizens deserved the victory. Jesus, who scored the equalizer, had few clear opportunities, but Kevin De Bruyne wasted a golden chance before half-time when he missed a penalty. Guardiola was missing the best scorer Sergio Aguero due to a hamstring injury. The Argentine striker has recovered and could feature here. He likes to play against the Spurs, scoring 11 Premier League goals against them. Raheem Sterling picked up a calf injury while on international duty. That's not all as Nathan Ake suffered a hamstring injury with Netherlands. Oleksandr Zinchenko had a positive coronavirus test and must be in self-isolation. Fernandinho and Benjamin Mendy are in process of recovery, however, this match is comming too soon for both.

Tottenham vs Manchester City Preview:

I expect at least three goals here. Both teams are in good form and the players confidence is high in both squads. Harry Kane scored three goals on the last three matches in the Premier League. Son Heung-min, meanwhile, is level with Calvert-Lewin, Salah and Vardy as the top flight's leading scorer with 8 goals. So, Tottenham have enough offensive power to attack. Manchester City will accept the challenge, they are not team that will defend. Guardiola also has players able to score, so this should be an efficient match.

Tottenham vs Manchester City Pick: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.66 with 1xBet

Leeds United vs Arsenal Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Leeds United:
Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas; Phillips; Costa, Roberts, Klich, Harrison; Bamford

Arsenal:
Leno; Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Leeds United will host Arsenal Elland Road, as both teams are looking to bounce back after disappointing defeats before the international break. Even worse, both teams have three defeats in the last four league matches. Leeds have 10 points and they are seven away from the drop zone. Having on mind they are newcomers in the Premier League, it is not bad at all. Avoiding relegation is what will satisfy the fans.. The Whites had two victories in the opening three rounds, but managed to register just one in the remaining five rounds. The draw with Manchester City should be rated as excellent result too. Manager Marcelo Bielsa is doing a good job, but the last two defeats surely make him to feel some pressure. His players will try to get back to winning ways following two high defeats from Leicester City and Crystal Palace. Leeds could lose three consecutive league fixtures for the first time under the Argentine coach. Bielsa has some issues ahead of this match as Diego Llorente, Jamie Shackleton and Pablo Hernandez are sidelined through the injuries. On the positive note, Kalvin Phillips has overcome a shoulder injury and is expected to play from the first minute. Rodrigo Moreno has completed a two-week period of self-isolation., although he is more likely to be introduced from the bench. The best scorer Patrick Bamford, who has seven goals to his name, is expected to lead the line. The problem is that just one of these seven goals has come at home.

Arsenal also have three defeats in the last four rounds of the Premier League. They only beat Manchester United at Old Trafford, while lost to Manchester City, Leicester and Aston Villa. Even worse, they failed to score in each of those three defeats. Key striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is completely out of form and that's the biggest problem. He scored the goal at Old Trafford, but that's all. Overal, the Gabonese international had just four shots in his last four Premier League appearances. The last defeat was most painful, the Gunners lost 3:0 to Aston Villa at the Emirats. The former Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez was 'jobless' on his return to London in the first half with just one shot on target from his ex-teammates, despite 64 percent possession. The second half wasn't much better and Arsenal suffered their worst home league defeat since December 2019, when they lost with identical 3:0 to Manchester City. The atmosphere in the squad isn't good as previously, while manager Mikel Arteta has some additional worries. New signing Thomas Partey has picked up a thigh injury while on international duty and won't play here. Mohamed Elneny was tested positive for coronavirus and must go in isolation. Bosnian international Sead Kolasinac also had a positive COVID-19 test during the international break, while Willian may be forced to be isolated after visiting Dubai during the pause. Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli remain sidelined due to injuries. The former key midfielder Mesut Ozil has not been part of Arteta's plans so far and I expect to continue that way.

Leeds United vs Arsenal Prediction:


I think both teams will score in this match. Leeds already played two matches against Big-6 teams and were efficient. As You probably know, the Whites lost 4:3 to Liverpool and played an 1:1 draw with Manchester City. I think Leeds are able to upset Arsenal too, but at the same time they seem unable to kept clean sheet.

Leeds United vs Arsenal Pick:
Both teams to score - Yes @ 1.61 with Pinnacle

Liverpool vs Leicester City Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Liverpool:
Alisson; N. Williams, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Jones, Wijnaldum, Naby Keita; Diogo Jota, Firmino, Mane

Leicester City:
Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Castagne, Mendy, Tielemans, Justin; Maddison, Vardy, Barnes

Liverpool have 17 points, while Leicester City one more. The reigning champions are not superior like they were previous season. Jurgen Klopp's team already showed lot of weaknesses, they have conceded 16 goals after 8 matches. Most of these goals were received from Aston Villa, when the Reds suffered the worst defeat in the club's history (7:2). But German coach has enormous injury issues ahead of this match. Virgil van Dijk, the best European defender) is sidelined for at least six months with a knee-ligaments injury. His partner Joe Gomez could also miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury suffered while on international duty with England last week. The 23-year-old underwent successful surgery last week. So, both first-choice central defenders are unavailable for the longer period. The only other senior option on that position is Joel Matip. Of course, young and inexperienced Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams are also in contention. But there is more, right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has limped off against Manchester City in the last round due to hamstring injury and won't play at least a month. The good news is that left-back Andy Robertson has recovered from a hamstring complaint and played against Israel in midweek. But it will be smart to be rested from this match with Kostas Tsimikas waiting in reserve. So, three of the four defenders are sidelined through injuries. It is clear Liverpool are very, very handicapped, not only for this game and not only in defense. Captain Jordan Henderson also got injury with the national team and won't play here, while Thiago Alcantara is rated as doubtful. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is closing in on return to action, but it is clear this match comes too soon for him. Finally, the best scorer Mohamed Salah is in isolation after tested positive on coronavirus. He was in Egypt on international duty, during which time he was filmed attending his brother’s wedding in Cairo, not wearing a mask. Mo returned to England on Friday, after securing a private flight with fellow compatriot and Arsenal star Mohamed Elneny, who also tested positive for coronavirus.

Leicester City play the new season in great style. The Foxes are in series of three victories which saw them occupying the first place on the table. They managed to beat Arsenal, Leeds United and Wolverhampton. Two of these three victories were narrow - Jamie Vardy scored the only goal against the Gunners, as so against the Wolves. Leicester were much more efficient against the Whites and secured a 4:1 win. Youri Tielemans was the key name on that match after scored a brace, while Vardy continued his series. The remaining goal was netted by Harvey Barnes. Leicester sit on the top position for the first time after the season 2015/16 when they won the title. The atmosphere in the squad is excellent, while the players confidence is high. Some of the fans start to dream again, while some of the fans are betting on their team to become champions. The fans can't support their players due to coronavirus, but they have faith Leicester could be crowned champions again. Who knows, maybe it is possible Brendon Rodgers' players to repeat what seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime achievement. The Irishman is enjoying the moment, even he has some injury worries too. Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey and Caglar Soyuncu remain sidelined, as well as Ricardo Pereira. The latest is close to full fitness, but this match comes too soon for him. On the positive note, Timothy Castagne and Wesley Fofana are available.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Prediction:


Jamie Vardy will lead Leicester attack in an attempt to improve his tally of 8 goals in 7 league games this season. But there is more - should Vardy score at Anfield, he will equal Thierry Henry's Premier League record of scoring in five successive away games. Considering the fact Liverpool are missing three key defenders (Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez), I think motivated Vardy will score.

Wolverhampton vs Southampton Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Wolverhampton:
Patricio; Boly, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Marcal; Traore, Jimenez, Neto

Southampton:
McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Djenepo; Walcott, Adams

Wolverhampton welcome high flying Southampton at Molineux Stadium. The hosts are looking to bounce back after suffering narrow defeat to leaders Leicester City before the international break. They were in solid form prior to the defeat, winning three of the four league fixtures. Wolverhampton managed to beat Fulham, Leeds United and Crystal Palace, while shared the points with Newcastle. However, the series came to their end at King Power. The Foxes scored from a highly contentious penalty - awarded after Praet's cross struck Max Kilman on the hand. Wolves threatened an equalizer after halftime, Neto and Kilman had clear opportunities, but Kasper Schmeichel made few outstanding saves and kept the net untouched. Nevertheless, manager Nuno Espirito Santo continue with his excellent job and I believe the fans are satisfied. The Portuguese coach has no big issues ahead of this match. Key defender Conor Coady is doubtful, but could be available to start after spent a period in self isolation during the international break. He was training alone after having a contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus. Interesting to be mentioned, Coady is aiming to make a 122nd consecutive league appearance. Two other players - Leander Dendoncker and Rayan Ait Nouri - are rated as doubtful. Key striker Raul Jimenez will lead the line in attempt to end a two-game goal drought. I believe his confidence is higher after scoring in both games for Mexico during the international break, against Japan and South Korea.

Southampton lost in the opening two rounds of the new season. First they suffered a narrow 1:0 to Crystal Palace, while then lost 5:2 from Tottenham Hotspur at St Mary. In addition, the Saints suffered painful elimination from Brentford in the League Cup. Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl surely felt some pressure at the time. But the next results are fantastic. The Saints are unbeaten in the remaining six matches in the Premier League, winning five and drawing just once. They are in series of three victories, looking for the another one. If they beat Wolverhampton, that will mean Southampton won four in a row for the first time since May 2016. In the last round they beat Newcastle with 2:0 thanks to the goals scored by Che Adams and Stuard Armstrong. The match was scheduled on Friday and Southampton climbed on the top of England's top division for the first time in 32 years. Interesting, the club then tweeted to 'STOP THE COUNT', taking a dig at Donald Trump. Nevertheless, the Premier League continued despite this satirical tweet and Southampton must continue with the victories. The absence of Danny Ings through a knee injury is a huge handicap, though Che Adams showed his class in the meantime. The striker have registered three goals in his last four Premier League matches, just one fewer than in his first 34 appearances in the competition. Theo Walcott should continue as his partner up front. James Ward-Prowse and Ryan Bertrand are rated as doubtful due to hamstring problems.

Wolverhampton vs Southampton Prediction:


I expect an interesting match at Molineux. Both teams are good this season, though Southampton are little better. Last season they remained unbeaten on this trip, playing an 1:1 draw in October. Che Adams is in excellent form and he could make the difference in this game. Southampton won't lose, that's my opinion.

Wolverhampton vs Southampton Pick:
Southampton +0.5 @ 1.65 with Pinnacle
