EPL Preview, Sunday 10 February


Manchester City v Chelsea is one of two English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we take a look at both games and suggest a bet in each.


Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester click here to bet

Tottenham were quoted at 100/1 to win the English Premier League just a couple of weeks back and despite the loss of their star forward, Harry Kane, they have clawed their way back into contention to sit 3rd, 5 points behind Manchester City and Liverpool at the time of writing and they are in to 18/1.

They have won their last 3 matches, 2 of which were at home against Newcastle and Watford and all 3 of their most recent victories have come by exactly one goal.

Leicester are 11th on the table and have only taken 1 point from the last 12 they have played for, most recently losing 1-0 at home to Manchester United.  They have got one of the better away records in the EPL winning 5 and drawing 3 of their 13 games.

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Tottenham (-1), the draw at 11/4

Tottenham are winning games but things are not coming easily for them and I expect another hard fought match and for this bet to win I need Spurs to win by a goal.


Manchester City v Chelseaclick here to bet

The clash of the weekend is without doubt Manchester City hosting Chelsea.

City go into the weekend top of the table on goal difference over Liverpool who would have played on Saturday.  They have won 6 of their last 7 matches including beating Everton 2-0 away in midweek and their last home game was a 3-1 win over Arsenal.

Chelsea are 4th on the table, 12 points behind City but with a game in hand.  They beat Huddersfield 5-0 at home last time out but they have lost their last 2 away games 4-0 at Bournemouth and 2-0 at Arsenal.

Suggested Bet:  Matchbet + Totals:  Under 3.5 goals and Manchester City win at 5/4

City should be too strong for Chelsea but I expect a tight game and City haven’t been quite in the prolific form they were earlier in the season so I am looking for a home win with 3 goals or less in the match.
