Manchester City vs Liverpool
Manchester City, leading the Premier League, is set for a high-scoring game at the Etihad Stadium, potentially securing a win against Liverpool. Despite a recent draw, they aim for a fourth consecutive title, slightly ahead of Liverpool, who are just a point behind. Liverpool’s recent form is strong, marked by an unbeaten run, but they have shown weaknesses in away games. The match promises goals, with Manchester City’s defense facing Liverpool’s robust attack. Mohamed Salah, in particular, is a player to watch, given his impressive track record against Manchester City. This game is a critical showdown between two top teams.
Manchester City boasts a perfect record in this season’s seven home games, while Liverpool’s away performance has seen just one victory in their last five outings. Nonetheless, the Reds have demonstrated formidable scoring prowess, netting 44 goals across 18 matches this season without a single failure to score.
Tip: Over 2.5 Goals❌
Newcastle vs Chelsea
Chelsea, after a slow start to the season, is finding form, eyeing a significant win against Newcastle on Saturday. Despite winning just four Premier League games this season, three of these victories emerged in October. Their recent performances include a commanding 4-1 win against Tottenham and a dramatic 4-4 draw with Manchester City. In the latter, Chelsea demonstrated resilience, overcoming multiple scoreline changes, ultimately securing a point with a late penalty. Under Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea, now mid-table, aims for higher standings, with a win at Newcastle potentially marking a crucial step.
Newcastle, on the other hand, is grappling with injury woes and fatigue. Key players like Callum Wilson and Harvey Barnes are sidelined, impacting their recent performances. Their Champions League aspirations suffered following a 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund, compounded by a loss to Bournemouth that positioned them seventh in the league. This match-up between Chelsea and Newcastle presents a vital opportunity for both, as Chelsea seeks to continue their upward trajectory and Newcastle hopes to overcome their challenges.
Currently, these teams exhibit contrasting levels of confidence. Newcastle faces a downturn with consecutive losses, while Chelsea has garnered four points from recent encounters with Tottenham and Manchester City. Given this scenario, it’s advisable to support Chelsea in a ‘draw no bet’ wager.
