23 Dec Leicester to draw leaders Liverpool? Man United to collapse again?
We obtained Tottenham to beat Chelsea all incorrect on Sunday but did call Atalanta to beat AC Milan in 5/6, together with all the Italians duly obliging 5-0. The upcoming important football activity happens on Boxing Day and Leicester City’s home clash with Liverpool ought to be a Christmas cracker.
Running total: -#25. 88
Having won 15 of the 16 matches this year, Liverpool fans will be reverted to their Christmas dinner with their club sitting pretty on peak of the table. History generally dictates the team that sits top of this heap on Christmas Day goes on to acquire the title, but the omens are not good for the Reds. Only 3 times in the past 11 seasons includes a team shirt at Christmas failed to lift the Premier League trophy, and it was Liverpool on three events!
But, there is a true belief that Jurgen Klopp’s guys can at last property their first league title since 1990 plus a win over Leicester could be a massive step to doing this. The Foxes have already been incredible this year but have faltered lately, drawing Norwich in the home and then losing 3-1 to some Kevin De Bruyne motivated Manchester City last time outside.
In precisely the exact same period the Foxes were dropping to Man Town, Liverpool were occupied getting champions of the planet after an extra-time success over Flamengo. Liverpool’s final three significant trophies are won in just 29 weeks. A bar in a rush and also a team on that the precipice of greatness. Should you fancy that there’ll be no hangover from Doha afterward there’s a lot to enjoy about bet365’s even cash supply on the win.
That stated, pundits are quick to compose Leicester off following the weekend, insisting there’s just City can grab Liverpool now. That may be doing Brendan Rodgers guys a disservice and Leicester shouldn’t be underestimated here. They’re a well-drilled side that are hard to beat in the home in the best of times, never mind only days after jetting back in the warmth of Qatar. The draw is an 11/4 opportunity and given precisely what’s at stake, for both teams, would function as bet in the King Power.
Choice: Number 4 on the draw 11/4 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Aston Villa (21/20) confront a crunch relegation battle with Norwich City on Boxing Day and we fancy Dean Smith’s guys to border a near one. Both sides are in dreadful type with both Smith and reverse number Daniel Farke atmosphere that they heat. The Canaries have picked up only 1 point from their last four matches while Villa have dropped their past four. Nonetheless, in Jack Grealish, Villa possess a rare jewel. Grealish has been directly engaged in much more Premier League targets than any other English midfielder this year (five goals, four assists), and he will help his team assert a valuable few points.
Elsewhere Tottenham were awful against Chelsea but may be reliable to bounce back 1/2 contrary to a Brighton facet who fight away from your home. The Seagulls have dropped five of the nine matches on the street so much while Spurs have obtained 17 points out of nine games at home.
Eventually add in Everton to beat Burnley in 13/20. Carlo Ancelotti insists he’s targeting Champions League qualification and trophy wins with Everton, and while this could be a bit optimistic they could begin that the Italian’s predominate with three points from a fairly average Burnley side that aren’t great travellers.
Choice: Number 4 on the treble in 4. ) 07/1 with bet365.
The Wildcard Hint
Manchester United were dreadful Sunday from Watford so we aren’t convinced punters will be queuing up to them back 1/3 if they host Newcastle on Thursday. The Magpies now sit at the upper half of the Premier League and understand a triumph at Old Trafford will see them leapfrog the Red Devils at the table.
Steve Bruce was mocked mercilessly by particular parts of the media after shooting the Toon task at the summer but he has done brilliantly under tough conditions and we believe the Mags may be worth a little play at 7/1.
Choice: #2 on Newcastle to succeed at 7/1 with bet365.
