EPL 2018/19 - Week 12


Cardiff v/s Brighton - Draw
Huddersfield v/s West Ham - Away
Leicester v/s Burnley - Home
Newcastle v/s Bournemouth - Away
Southampton v/s Watford - Home
Crystal Palace v/s Tottenham - Draw
Liverpool v/s Fulham - Home
Chelsea v/s Everton - Home
Arsenal v/s Wolves - Home
Man City v/s Man Utd - Home

Although Man Utd got the perfect result during their travel at Juventus in mid-week, their performance on the pitch will have left a lot desired for many. Any such repeat while visiting neighbours Man City looks doomed to failure and possibly catastrophe. The Red Devils were shackled for long periods in Italy only to find their footing in the last minutes of the match and reverse what looked like a detrimental result. On the other hand, the Citizens are flying at the moment and scarily scoring at free will. I cannot see them getting beaten at home based on the form of the Red Devils and I think Guardiola's men will easily win this contest.

Leicester will be back from a long trip to Thailand and fitness-wise might not be at their peak but they should have too much class for a desperate Burnley team.

Liverpool is a banker to thrash Fulham and I suspect Salah will have another field day.

Last but not least, I like Southampton to get something out of their match against Watford. The Saints will have to rack up the points at home if they are to stay up and while visiting Watford are proving to be a decent bunch this year, I can still see the home team prevailing by the tightest of margins in this one.

Accumulator: Liverpool/Man City/Leicester/Southampton

EPL 2018/19 - Week 11

Bournemouth v/s Man Utd - Home
Cardiff v/s Leicester - Home
Everton v/s Brighton - Home
Newcastle v/s Watford - Away
West Ham v/s Burnley - Home
Arsenal v/s Liverpool - Away
Wolves v/s Tottenham - Away
Man City v/s Southampton - Home
Chelsea v/s Crystal Palace - Home
Huddersfield v/s Fulham - Draw

Man City and Chelsea have easy outings and should bag whole points at home. I think Spurs have the form and squad to go grasp full points on their visit at Wolves. For accumulator purposes, I  see value in including the Hammers who look to have an easier task than most in overwhelming a Burnley team with a very poor away record.
