Everton will be looking to bounce back against Chelsea after their 5-2 loss to Liverpool in Matchday 16 while Liverpool will be aiming to continue their winning run. The English Premier League December schedule seems to be choking the whole team as they play both weekdays and weekends. For the Champions League and Europa League teams it will be double work now as they prepare for the final group stage matches. We will be giving analyses and make possible predictions for the games as usual.
Everton vs Chelsea
Everton will be aiming to make amends for a heartbreaking derby against Liverpool that ended 5-2 in favor of Liverpool. The Merseyside derby was played on Wednesday after which head coach Marco Silva was sacked. They will be hosing Chelsea at their Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Toffees have been struggling to find their best form in the first half of the season, and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Frank Lampard’s troops. Everton are on a three-game losing run in the English top flight. They lack confidence ahead of the Saturday’s showdown. Tammy Abraham helped Chelsea beat Aston Villa 2-1 on his return to the starting line-up from injury. With this we believe Everton will not be able to beat Chelsea. An away win is on the bet for us.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp will be looking to extend his winning run as they travel to Bournemouth in Matchday 16 at Dean Court Stadium. Bournemouth suffered a shocking loss to 10 men Crystal Palace on Tuesday and will be looking to make amends. The Cherries have been totally out of form this season, they have suffered a loss in each of their last four league fixtures. Eddie Howe’s troops face a huge task as they welcome league leaders Liverpool.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp rested Mohamed Salah in a 5-2 win over Everton, but the Egypt international is likely to start against Bournemouth. The Reds are determined to win the Premier League trophy this season as the last time they won it was in the 90s. We are positive that they will go all out blazing at the Cherries on Matchday 16. We are positive is a straight win for the away team.
Tottenham vs Burnley
After Marcus Rashford of Manchester United ended Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten run with Tottenham, they will be looking to return to winning on Saturday. Spurs are eyeing their third league win under new boss Jose Mourinho, and they are seen as hot favorites to win Saturday’s Matchday 16 game. Harry Kane has been struggling to find his goal-scoring form of late, but Dele Alli is in top form. Alli has scored three goals in his last three games and he is one the visitor should be worried about.
The Clarets, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back losses to the likes of Crystal Palace and Manchester City. Burnley will be facing a side that is hungry to return to winning ways ans we don’t believe they can stop the home side. In their last meeting in the Premier League Tottenham defeated Burnley 1-0. We believe the visitors will still go back empty handed.
Watford vs Crystal Palace
Watford lost to second place Leicester City in their last game and will be aiming at making their comeback a unique one on Saturday. They will be hosting Crystal Palace in their Vicarage Road Stadium in EPL Matchday 16 on Saturday. The Hornets are stuck at the bottom of the standings ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace, but this game could be the turning point for the hosts.
Seeing that Watford are likely to leave their hearts on the field this time out, we predict that they are going to find the net against the capital club. The Eagles will be without suspended defender Mamadou Sakho, who was sent off in a 1-0 win over Bournemouth. But given the Eagles’ attacking potential, both teams to score bet should be considered. You should bear in mind that both teams found the net in each of their last three meetings in the English elite division.
Manchester City vs Manchester United
There will be fireworks when Manchester City and Manchester United face each other at Etihad Stadium in the local derby. The Citizens aim to close down on Liverpool’s advantage in the Premier League standings. We are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Red Devils. In Kun Aguero’s absence, Gabriel Jesus, who scored a brace in a 4-1 win over Burnley, will lead the line for the hosts.
Pep Guardiola’s troops are eleven points behind the Reds in the Premier League table, meaning that the game is a must-win for them. Manchester United, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Tottenham, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Marcus Rashford scored two goals in the triumph over Jose Morinho’s side, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on the Citizens, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. But betting of both teams to score will yield more, so our bet will both teams to score.
