An intriguing match to get us underway this weekend when Arsenal host Hull City at lunchtime on Saturday. A few weeks ago this would have been a game in which the home team were a cert to take the three points, but with Arsenal losing their last 2 and Hull picking up an impressive 4 points from their last 2 fixtures, against Manchester United and Liverpool, there could be some second thoughts on this. Despite Hull’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford last Wednesday they’ve still not won any of their last 10 away games in all competitions and indeed lost 9 in a row before that draw. For that reason it’s hard to see past an Arsenal win at 2/7 with bet365.
At 3pm Man United are at home to Watford in a game they’ll be desperate to win to keep in contention for a top 4 finish. They’re undefeated in their last 15 league games and should be too strong for a Watford side who have won just 1 of their last 8 away in the league. Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored and assisted last time out against Leicester and should cause plenty of problems for Watford’s defence, the midfielder is currently 5/1 with bet365 to score first.
Derby time – Liverpool v Tottenham
The big match of the weekend is Saturday’s evening game, with Liverpool hosting Tottenham. Spurs have 9 wins and 2 draws from their last 11 games in all competitions while Liverpool are in wretched form, winning just 1 from their last 10. Another defeat would seriously dent their top 4 hopes and on form there’s no doubt about which team we should be looking at for the three points here. As such, Liverpool are 5/4 to win with a draw and away win both priced at 23/10 again all with bet365.
