Arsenal look to keep with EPL pacesetters in North London derby

Fri, Nov 4, 1:40pm by Staff Writer

The three-way deadlock atop the Premier League standings looks unlikely to be broken this weekend, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool all tipped to win their upcoming encounters.

Manchester City top the table by virtue of goal difference only and could extend that slim advantage with a big home win against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

City is on a high after downing West Brom 4-0 last round, then defeating Barcelona 3-1 in the Champions League midweek, and Pep Guardiola’s side is rightly William Hill’s $1.22 favourite to take the three points.

Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough will be happy to take a point from the match and are $13 for a win and $6 for the draw.

“He’s one of the best coaches, especially after the win over Barcelona, he’s changing,” Karanka said of Guardiola.

Second-placed Arsenal will have a tougher time against fifth-placed Tottenham, but should still come away with the home win.

Arsene Wenger is likely to stick with striker Alexis Sanchez for the north London derby, and goes into the match paying $1.95 for the victory, with $3.95 for the loss and $3.40 for a draw.

In Liverpool, the Reds are the short-money favourites to retain their share of the EPL lead when they host Watford.

Despite Watford coming off a three-match unbeaten streak, they are the $10 underdogs to beat Liverpool, it’s $1.28 for a loss and $5.50 for a draw.

Fourth-placed Chelsea are chasing their fifth straight league win when they host Everton at Stamford Bridge and are tipped to continue their run of good form.

Antonio Conte’s side haven’t conceded a goal in that span and are paying $1.55 to claim a fifth consecutive victory, while Everton are at $6 for a win and it’s $4 for the draw.

Manchester United head to Swansea without manager Jose Mourinho, who was handed a heavy fine and a one-match suspension for an outburst after last week’s match.

And despite losing 2-1 to Fenerbahce in the Europa League during the week, United are paying just $1.65 for a win in Wales, with $5 for a loss and $4 for a draw.

Defending champion Leicester can improve on their 12th-place position with a home win over West Bromwich Albion. Leicester are at $1.80 to win, with $4.75 on offer for a loss and $3.40 for the draw.

In other matches, West Ham are the $1.95 favourites to overcome Stoke, with $3.80 for a loss and $3.60 for a draw.

Bournemouth are the $1.63 favourites to down Sunderland at home, while Crystal Palace are paying $2.40 to win a close encounter at Burnley.

Southampton are tipped to take the points at Hull, at $1.66 for the win.

The 11th round of the Premier League kicks off at 2am Sunday AEDT.

Suggested Bet: Take Leicester and Arsenal to win into a draw in the Man U v Swansea match at $14.04
