Week 5 (2017-2018 Season) EPL Fixtures and Analyses.
Only three teams: Man United, Man City and Watford are yet to taste defeat this season, though the season is still very young. Week 5 games look very predictable but I won’t be surprised if we witness some upsets!
Bournemouth 2-1 Brighton: the Cherries finally registered their first win of the season. They now have 3 points. The Seagulls (Brighton) had won one, drew one and lost 3 – so they have 4 points altogether!
Huddersfield vs Leicester City: Huddersfield may have an edge but if they’re wasteful the Foxes might punish them. Huddersfield win: 40%; Leicester win: 40% Draw: 20%
Liverpool vs Burnley: the Reds may likely share the spoils with their visitors.
Newcastle vs Stoke City: The Magpies combat the Potters. Nice pairing, though I’m still observing the pitch behaviours of R. Benitez’s men. Newcastle win: 35%; Stoke City win: 32%; Draw: 33%
Watford vs Man City: two unbeaten sides confront and combat. The Hornets have the potential to intimidate the Citizens and to have an edge they should try to net first and if they are fortunate to score again the best City can do to salvage the situation would be to score twice, level and share the spoils with their hosts yes they are not likely to come from behind to win when they are 2 goals down. Watford win: 30%; Man City win: 35%; Draw: 35%
West Brom vs West Ham: The Guys from the west. Two seasons back these guys torment EPL big boys. I see a 50-50 game here – whereby one may dominate while the other runs away to the bank with 3 points. Barren draw is also possible; nonetheless West Brom may have an edge. West Brom win: 40%; West Ham win: 37%; Draw: 23%.
Spurs vs Swansea: Spurs like Man City are high-scoring side and just last weekend they made coffee out of the Toffees by scoring thrice without conceding once; but Spurs may not have high score-line if they win today. Tottenham win: 40%; Swansea win: 30%; Draw: 30%
Chelsea vs Arsenal: the Blues should be wary of the Gunners otherwise the Emirates boys would punish them yet again! If Chelsea perceive Arsenal with realistic eyes they might win but if they overrate or underrate the Gunners they are on their own! Chelsea win: 34%; Arsenal win: 31%; Draw: 35%
Man United vs Everton: after suffering a ‘loss’ this past weekend Man United should strike like Suarez, grab the 3 and rest. 3 points with convincing goal margin are what I’m expecting. The Toffees are down but they can up their ante. If they can play like a team fighting for top 4 slot in the first-half and one trying to win the league in second-half they might share the spoils in the end but that’s not to say they can’t steal the available 3 points. Man United win: 40% Everton win: 30%; Draw: 30%
