Premier League Predictions > Apr 8th & 9th

Recommended Posts


The Easter weekend delivers a round of Premier League matches for us. Here are the fixtures with their odds. Arsenal currently hold an 8-point lead at the top of the table and have won 7 league games in a row scoring at least 3 goals in 6 of those matches. 2nd placed Manchester City do possess a game in hand though and are showing signs that they might be hitting a purple patch again after their dominant 4-1 win against Liverpool last weekend. Newcastle and Aston Villa are the two other teams in decent form right now after adding wins to their streak this week. Teams that are struggling include Fulham without Aleksandar Mitrovic, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester with the relegation dog fight looking particularly interesting. Tell us your predictions for these games and keep an eye on our big game previews on our newly revamped website! :ok

Southampton vs Manchester City

Southampton will be hoping to bounce back here after the 1-0 Premier League losing effort in their last game against West Ham United. However, they will face the defending champions, who are in a title hunt. In their previous six fixtures, Rubén Sellés's Southampton has seen rewards for their attempts on goal a total of 5 times which gives them an average number of goals per match of 0.83. The Saints need a perfect display in this match to snatch valuable points in the relegation battle. Juan Larios (Unknown Injury), Arme Bella-Kotchap (Shoulder Injury), Tino Livramento (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), and Kyle Walker-Peters (Hamstring Injury) won't be able to feature for Southampton coach Rubén Sellés.

Manchester City comes into this game following a 4-1 Premier League win over Liverpool in their previous fixture. The Citizens are full of confidence after the victory over the Reds and now go to face the bottom-placed team. Over the course of their last six clashes, Manchester City has bagged a total of 23 goals. Manchester City has also not failed to score in every single one of those games. During that period, they had 1 goal go against them. However, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern shall be maintained here in this match. Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola does not have any fitness worries to report coming into this game.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

Manchester City enjoys a streak of four straight wins, and it would be a huge kick in the teeth if they spill points in this outing. We don't believe Southampton is capable of surprising the rival and Manchester City should celebrate a comfortable victory.

Goals Market Prediction

The visitors have improved their defensive work recently, and we expect them to maintain it in this encounter. Therefore, we think the Citizens will keep the clean sheet in this match.

Manchester City AH -1.5 @ 1.80

BTTS No @ 1.70

Correct score 0:3 @ 7.70

Liverpool vs Arsenal

Liverpool goes into this game after a goalless Premier League drawn result against Chelsea. It was their fourth straight game without tasting a win, and the Reds are huge ten points behind the fourth-placed Manchester United. From their previous six clashes before this one, in 5 of them, a wager on both teams scoring would've been a losing one. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if the trend might be sustained in this upcoming game or not. Ahead of this meeting, Liverpool is undefeated in their previous six home league matches. On the other hand, the Gunners have not registered a win against Liverpool when they have played them away from home in the previous nine league games. Luis Díaz (Knee Injury), Thiago (Problems with the hip flexor), Darwin Núñez (Unknown Injury), Joe Gomez (Muscle Injury), Calvin Ramsay (Knee Surgery), and Stefan Bajcetic (Tear in the abductor muscle) will not be able to play for Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp.

Arsenal heads into the game following a 4-1 Premier League win vs Leeds United in their previous game. The Gunners still lead the title race with an eight-point advantage over Manchester City, who also has a game in hand. The stats don't lie, and Arsenal has been scored against in 5 of their last six games, seeing their opponents hit seven goals in total. In defense, Arsenal has clearly had some problems. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Eddie Nketiah (Ankle Injury), Mohamed Elneny (Knee Injury), and Takehiro Tomiyasu (Knee Surgery) will not be playing here.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction                                                                            

It is going to be an exciting match in which both teams will search for a positive result. However, as Arsenal has been much more confident recently, we think they might return to London with a priceless victory.

Goals Market Prediction

Despite having trouble finding the back of the opponent's net recently, we should expect an attacking approach from Liverpool. Also, Arsenal's defense hasn't been too tight, and we shouldn't see teams keeping a clean sheet in this encounter.

Arsenal AH -0.25 @ 2.15

BTTS Yes @ 1.60

Correct score 1:2 @ 9.40
