The EPL Matchday 25 games begins with Chelsea traveling to the King Power Stadium to play Leicester City. All EPL teams played the FA Cup last week and so are now ready to return to normal weekend games. Only Liverpool and West Ham played their outing game in the weekend and it ended in favor of Liverpool. Over here we will be giving analysis on the games before making predictions on games.
Leicester City vs Chelsea
Leicester City will be hosting Chelsea at their King Power Stadium in the EPL Matchday 25. The two teams are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, and is going to be the first game of the day. The Foxes did well to bounced back from back-to-back losses to Southampton and Burnley, and beat West Ham United 3-1 on Matchday 24. Brendan Rodgers’ troops defeated Brentford in the FA Cup at the weekend. Jamie Vardy was rested in the 1-0 win over the Bees, is likely to return to the starting XI.
The Blues, on the other hand, failed to beat ten-man Arsenal in the London derby at the EPL Matchday 24 in the weekend. They are still in the top four position with six points above Manchester United. Chelsea boss Frank Lampard rested several first-team regulars in the FA Cup win over Hull City, he is likely to feature the best players against Leicester City. Seeing that both teams are scoring sides we believe betting on both teams to score won’t be a bad bet.
Southampton vs Liverpool
After beating West Ham in front of their fans Liverpool will be looking to cement their title hopes with a win over the Saints. They welcome the Saints to their their Anfield stadium a pitch which has not known defeat for a whole year. The Reds are enjoying a season to remember, and it seems as if nothing is going to spoil their party this time out. Jurgen Klopp’s men are on the right track to win their first Premier League trophy since 1990. We are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Southampton.
The Saints have been producing fine displays in the second half of the season, but they will require more than brilliance to win against Liverpool. African Player of Year Sadio Mane is unlikely to play the as he has not recovered from his injury a man to watch now will be Mohammed Salah. Liverpool will also have former teammate Danny Ings to worry for as he is in the best form of his career. We are predicting home win or both teams to score.
Manchester United vs Wolverhampton
Manchester United failed to impress in their last home against Burnley where they lost 2-0, but they did well top thrash Tranmere Rovers 6-0. They registered the highest goals scored in a single game since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. Their top league scorer Marcus Rashford is still sidelined with an injury and remains in the recovery room, and. In his absence, all eyes will be on Anthony Martial, who has netted ten goals in all competitions so far this season. Also united long-awaited signing Bruno Fernandes will be making his debut in the EPL Matchday 25 game.
Wolves, on the other hand, produced a fine display against Liverpool, but lost at the end of the day. They have been producing fine showings of late, and we predict that they are going to make life difficult for the Red Devils. Judging that United lost their last home game we predict they will not United will not want to lose again at Old Trafford. The two teams are level on points in the Premier League standings, we are predicting a win or draw for the home side.
Burnley vs Arsenal
Burnley will be looking to make amends for the FA Cup defeat to Norwich City when they take on Arsenal at their Turf Moor in EPL Matchday 25. The Clarets proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their third consecutive win in the English top flight. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be New Zealand attacker Chris Wood, who is enjoying yet another successful season.
The Gunners, on the other hand, aim to move a little closer to the Champions League berth, but beating Burnley at Turf Moor won’t be easy. The good news for the visitors is that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns from his three match suspension, but is not a guarantee for three points. Both teams are scoring sides and so we believe betting on both teams to score will be safer.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City
All eyes will be on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Tottenham and Manchester City face each other in the Premier League derby. Spurs have been playing below expectations under new boss Jose Mourinho, but they did well to beat Norwich City in their last league match. In Harry Kane’s absence (hamstring injury), a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Korea international Son, who scored the winner against the Canaries.
The Citizens, on the other hand, aim to cement second place position in the standings, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Spurs. Considering that Jose Mourinho’s men are low in confidence since the start of the year 2020, away win should be considered. A man to watch in the away team will be Kun Aguero, who has found his goal-scoring touch in the second half of the season.
