Arsenal vs Newcastle United

Arsenal is hoping to win again following the 4-2 Premier League success against Brighton & Hove Albion. It was their fifth consecutive success, and the Gunners managed to increase their advantage over Man City to seven points. Arsenal hasn't had any problems with scoring, netting in one hundred percent of their last six games. They've managed to rack up 12 during that period while also conceding a total of 6. Coming into this meeting, Arsenal has not been beaten in their last four league matches at home. Availability isn't a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Gabriel Jesus (Knee Injury) is sidelined.

Last time out, Newcastle United drew 0-0 in the Premier League match with Leeds United. Nevertheless, the Magpies remained third in the table, being two points ahead of Manchester United. A succession of dependable showings from the Newcastle United defense has seen their' goals against' tally standing at one from their previous six outings in total. During the same period, the number of goals they scored themselves amounts to 9. Newcastle United is one of the biggest overachievers this season, and the visitors want to remain in the same fashion.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be an exciting clash that can easily go either way. Nevertheless, Arsenal has been pretty confident against the Magpies on the home ground, and we expect them to book another victory.

Goals Market Prediction

Newcastle United failed to score at Emirates Stadium eight times in the previous nine matches. Therefore, we think Arsenal's defense will hold on again to keep the clean sheet.

BTTS No @ 2.07

Correct score 2:0 @ 8.80

Manchester United vs Bournemouth

Based on their previous result, Manchester United will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-0 Premier League triumph against Wolverhampton Wanderers. It was the Red Devils' third straight win that launched them to the 4th spot in the English top flight. Manchester United hasn't been able to stop scoring goals, netting in one hundred percent of their last six games. They have claimed a sum of 13 during that period while also conceding a total of 6. Coming into this clash, Manchester United is unbeaten in its four home league matches. There aren't many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag to contend with due to a largely intact group. Axel Tuanzebe (Unknown Injury) is sidelined.

After suffering a loss in their previous game against Crystal Palace in Premier League action, Bournemouth will be aiming to make amends here. They lost four times on the last five occasions, and the away side is now close to the danger zone. Indicating their fondness for high-scoring matches, we've seen goals 20 times in the last six games in which Bournemouth have taken to the field, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals per fixture. Opposition teams have managed ten of this total. Coming into this meeting, Bournemouth has not won away from home in their last five matches in the league. Bournemouth boss Gary O'Neil has to choose from a squad with some fitness concerns. David Brooks (Fitness), Lloyd Kelly (Ankle Injury), and Neto (Fitness) can't be considered.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Manchester United is a firm favorite in this encounter, and we believe the Red Devils will meet expectations. Therefore, the hosts might celebrate a comfortable w in on Tuesday evening.

Goals Market Prediction

Man Utd's defense has been pretty solid in the previous three matches, keeping a clean sheet in each of them. That's why we think they will be able to stop Bournemouth's forwards and keep their net intact again. 

Manchester United AH -1.5 @ 1.77

BTTS No @ 1.75

Correct score 3:0 @ 7.60

Leeds United vs West Ham

Leeds United will play in this fixture following a 0-0 Premier League drawn game against Newcastle United. The hosts managed to pick up a point after losing two matches in a row. Nevertheless, they are still in trouble, being only two points ahead of the red zone. It's been seldom in recent times that Leeds United hasn't conceded. The reality is that Leeds United has seen its defense breached in 5 of their previous six clashes, shipping 12 goals in the process. It's a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch to be concerned with from an almost fully healthy set of players. Stuart Dallas (Femoral Fracture) will miss out.

After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Brentford in Premier League competition, West Ham United will be hoping to turn things around here. The Hammers suffered five straight losses, and they now have the same number of points as the first team below the red line, Nottingham Forest. The numbers tell their own story, and West Ham United have been scored against in 5 of their last six matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals overall. At the back, West Ham United seems to have a bit of a soft underbelly. With a completely injury-free group available for selection, West Ham United manager David Moyes has no fitness concerns at all ahead of this match.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be a tight match, and both teams will try to book a win at Elland Road. However, we won't be surprised if these two sides split points in the upcoming game.

Goals Market Prediction

Both teams have had defensive issues lately, and that trend might continue on Wednesday evening. That's why we believe neither side will manage to keep the clean sheet in this encounter.

Draw @ 3.55

BTTS Yes @ 1.68

Correct score 1:1 @ 6.80

Chelsea vs Manchester City

The Premier League matches continue to come thick and fast in the new year. It’s Chelsea versus Manchester City in this epic encounter that is set to kick-off at 8pm GMT on Thursday evening from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea look a shadow of the team they had become under Thomas Tuchel and despite a positive start to Graham Potter’s tenure with the club it’s quickly gone horribly wrong. The Blues are now down in 10th position and 10 points adrift of the Champions League qualification places. That hasn’t been helped due to a run of just 1 win from their last 7 league games and that was a 2-0 win over an out-of-form and relegation-threatened Bournemouth at home.

The pressure will be on Potter to turn this form around after his side were held to a 1-1 draw against another relegation-battling side in Nottingham Forest away in their last league outing. The fact Chelsea have only scored 5 goals in their last 7 league games shows where a big issue lies. It is also alarming that the team have failed to even score in their last three meetings with Manchester City across all competitions.

Manchester City will be smelling blood after title rivals and league leaders Arsenal dropped 2 points in their 1-1 draw with Champions League-chasing Newcastle this week. Pep Guardiola’s side sit 2nd place in the top flight and are now 8 points behind the Gunners with a game in hand. The Citizens have only managed to pick up 1 win in their last 3 league games so their form is far from imperious.

It is just 1 loss from their 7 away league games so far this season including picking up back-to-back victories on their last two road trips in the league. City do also come into this game having seen off Chelsea by a 2-0 score-line in their EFL Cup clash back in November so they have the psychological edge. Striker Erling Haaland remains a solid pick for the scoring markets too having scored 4 goals in his last 3 appearances for the club.

Almost every season in the Premier League this is one of those fixtures that has either seen one of the two teams involved leading the league table or both in contention for a title battle. This season, it’s a bit of a more low-key affair as a team milling around the mid-table region host a club who are a number of wins off catching the league leaders. It’s a strange feeling.

You have to feel that Chelsea are not a confident bet right now under Potter and something needs to change. Will it be the manager? City can never be ruled out and even though their results have lacked consistency they still feel like the firm favourites here. The big question is whether they can win without conceding or if both teams will score. I have a feeling that City have shown they struggle to keep clean sheets against teams with attacking quality and Chelsea certainly boast that threat despite firing blanks recently.

Manchester City to Win & BTTS @ 12/5 with Bet365

First Goalscorer: Erling Haaland @ 13/5 with Unibet

Chelsea vs Manchester City

Chelsea heads into this fixture after a 1-1 Premier League drawn result vs Nottingham Forest. The Blues stayed in 8th place in the English top flight, being seven points behind Manchester United, who is 4th. Under three goals per match were seen in 5 of the past six meetings where Chelsea has been a participant. In terms of goal attribution from that period, their opponents scored a total of 6, and Chelsea managed a tally of 5. Coming into this clash, Chelsea has not beaten Manchester City in their last two matches in the league. Graham Potter's men will look forward to breaking that negative record in this encounter. However, Ben Chilwell (Hamstring Injury), Edouard Mendy (Knock), Wesley Fofana (Knee Injury), Reece James (Knee Injury), N'Golo Kanté (Hamstring Injury), and Armando Broja (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren't available for the Blues.

In their last fixture, Manchester City drew 1-1 in the Premier League tie with Everton. It was their second hiccup in the previous three rounds, which saw them stay seven points behind Arsenal, who still leads the title race. Over the course of their last half-dozen clashes, Manchester City has amassed the sum of 12 goals. Manchester City has also scored in every single one of those games. Over that period, they've seen seven goals go into their net. The defending champions need to become more consistent if they want to grab another crown. Due to a completely injury-free group ready to go, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this clash.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Although neither team has been consistent recently, Chelsea has had much more problems. It is going to be an entertaining match, and we believe the visitors will pick up all three points in this encounter.

Goals Market Prediction

Five of their previous six h2h clashes stayed under a 2.5 margin, and the Blues have had severe trouble finding the opponent's net lately. Since Manchester City has also been involved in low-scoring games recently, we don't expect to see more than two goals in total.

Manchester City to Win @ 1.65

Under 2.5 FT @ 2.13

Correct score 0:2 @ 8.00
