EPL Matchday 26 games resumes with Wolves hosting the Foxes, other league games come up hours later with Arsenal playing on Sunday. The winter break has been fun many of the clubs as they got time to relax from the midweek and weekend games. Over here we will be giving you express analysis on the games and then, make possible predictions afterwards.
Wolverhapton vs Leicester City
The Molineux Stadium will host the EPL Matchday 26 clash between Wolverhampton and Leicester City. The Wolves has been producing excellent performance in the league this season. They played out a goalless draw with United in their last game. They will open this week EPL games as they host Brendan Rodgers troops. Wolverhampton aim to stay in the race for a place in the Champions League, and we are positive that they will go for a win against Leicester.
The Foxes, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Chelsea in their last league match. They will be looking to get back to winning ways as they travel to face Adama and co. the team’s captain Jamie Vardy seems to be out of form of late but we believe Madison and Nigerian Iheanacho can fit in the space. The game will be an interesting one as both teams are scoring sides. We believe that betting on both teams to score won’t be a bad idea.
Southampton vs Burnley
Southampton were knocked out of the FA Cup in their last game and will be looking to give fans something to cheer about. They will host Burnley at their St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Saints have been in form of late and since they are home we belive they will take all three points from the game. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Danny Ings, who has netted 17 goals in all competitions this season.
The Clarets, on the other hand, have been in a good form in the Premier League of late, with the team beating the likes of Leicester City and Man Utd. They held Arsenal to a draw in their last game, they are also in good form and we believe Chris Wood and Co. will find the back of the net. Playing on G-G or home win and over 2.5 won’t be a bad idea.
Norwich City vs Liverpool
It will be a fight of the bottom and the top as bottom place Norwich City host top place Liverpool in the EPL Matchday 26. Even though Jurgen Klopp rested entire starting line-up against Shrewsbury Town, his youth team was able to see Liverpool through to the FA Cup last 16. Considering that Mohamed Salah has been in a splendid form of late, we predict that the Reds are going to extend their winning run in the Premier League to 17 games.
The Canaries, on the other hand, are fighting hard to avoid relegation to the Championship. They did well to hold Newcastle United to a goalless draw in their last league match. The game is a sure lost for them as Liverpool have not lost since the start of the season and they don’t look like they will stop soon.
Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur
Aston Villa will host Jose Mourinho’s side at their Villa Park stadium in EPL Matchday 26. The Villans are eager to secure yet another Premier League survival, while Spurs aim to stay in the top four position. Tottenham top scorer Harry Kane is still in the recovery room, but Korea international Son, will be in action for the visitors. Our predictions will be away win and over 1.5.
Aston Villa have been struggling at the back in 2020, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Jose Mourinho’s troops. Key attacker Wesley Moraes is sidelined with a knee injury, while midfielder John McGinn misses the match through an ankle problem. In the first half of the season Spurs defeated the Villans 3-1.
Arsenal vs Newcastle United
Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the EPL Matchday 26 game as they tae on Newcastle United at their Emirates Stadium. The Gunners aim to move a little closer to the Champions League berth, and this has to go down as yet another must-win game for the capital club.
Considering that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta can count on key players for the Newcastle United game, home win should be considered. The Magpies, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, but the Gunners are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. In the first half of the season Arsenal defeated Newcastle 1-0 at St. James’ Park, and you should bear in mind that the Gunners are eyeing their fourth consecutive triumph over the Magpies.
