Southampton v Manchester United Preview & Predictions
After the phenomenal performance and convincing 4-0 victory against Chelsea FC in the first round, Manchester United have disappointed their fan base twice. First, they didn’t play well on the road against Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Paul Pogba missing the penalty shot in the second half. That match ended without a winner, 1-1 FT. They had a great chance to get back on the winning tracks and beat Crystal Palace at Old Trafford last week. The Eagles have caused a major upset and won the game in stoppage time 2-1. Can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer inspire the squad and make some changes for the upcoming clash against Southampton at St Mary’s? Luke Shaw has suffered an injury, so his appearance is going to be under a big question mark.
The current odds for this 4th round opening match at the moment are 1/1 Man Utd to win, 12/5 for Saints’ victory. The draw is priced at 6/4 right now. We had a 5-goals thriller the last time these two teams met. The previous head to head encounter was played on March 2019 at Old Trafford. The Red Devils won it 3-2 thanks to the late goal scored by Romelu Lukaku, now Inter Milan’s player. Manchester United have defeated Southampton at this stadium three times in the last six attempts.
Ralph Hasenhuttl and his squad have opened the new football season in a terrible way. They have lost the first two matches against Burnley and Liverpool with a total goal difference of 1-5. The first victory was achieved on last Saturday on the road against Brighton & Hove. Saints won it 2-0, with the goals being scored by Djanepo and Redmond, both in the second half. Even though the Premier League Tips for this match are rather open, if we had to pick something here, we would back away victory.
Chelsea FC v Sheffield Utd Preview & Predictions
Frank Lampard was in a great mood in the press conference after the match against Norwich City played last Saturday. The Blues have won that match at Carrow Road 3-2 and secured the first victory in the season 2019/2020. Man of the match was Tammy Abraham who scored first and the winning goal. Lampard stated he has a lot of faith in this striker, hoping to see him maintain the high form for upcoming games. Chelsea will aim for the first home win against the newcomers to the elite, Sheffield United. The Blades are labeled as a massive underdog going into this match, priced at 8/1 to win the game.
Chelsea now has four points, occupying the 13th position on the table. Their main goal for the season is to fight for the UEFA Champions League spot, which is going to be a hard task, especially if they don’t work on inconsistency. Sheffield United, on the other hand, didn’t perform any better than the Blues, and they have the same number of points so far. They started the season with a draw against AFC Bournemouth, followed with a great defensive performance and a 1-0 narrow victory against Crystal Palace. The first defeat came last Saturday against Leicester City. The upcoming schedule for this team is just super-hard – away vs Chelsea, away vs Everton, and then a home match against Liverpool FC.
It is been a while since these two teams locked horns. The last time it happened was in 2007 when the Blades were members of the Premier League. Chelsea has won both matches in that season with a total goal difference of 5-0. Our favorite tip for this upcoming match is Chelsea to score in both halves at 11/10.
Burnley v Liverpool FC
Liverpool’s fans have good memories of the most recent head to head encounters against Burnley. The last three games were super-enjoyable to watch, ending with six, four, and three goals total. The Reds were victorious in all three occasions. Can they extend that streak to four this Saturday? The duel at Turf Moor is going to wrap up the action for the day. Liverpool is the only team in the league that managed to win all three games so far, sitting lonely at the top of the table. Mo Salah is playing brilliantly once again, having scored three goals so far. He is surely going to be one of the top selections when it comes to anytime goal scorers market.
Even though Burnley doesn’t have a good record against Liverpool recently, there is a lot of room for their fans to feel optimistic. The last two games saw Clarets lose to Arsenal narrowly 2-1, followed with a solid performance and 1-1 draw on the road against Wolverhampton. The team is currently sitting in the 6th position with four points. The odds are heavily against them though. The home win is priced at sky-high 8/1, while chances for Liverpool to win the fourth consecutive match in the EPL is at 1/3. Our top selection for this encounter is going to be Reds to win & both teams to score at 19/10.
