Arsenal-Tottenham. Liverpool put a spanner in The Gunners Premier League quest last week in decisive fashion. But, Arsenal fans will be hoping that their squad can put that loss behind them and return to winning ways. Their opponents will be no pushover though and as such, a home victory is far from certain. For that reason, the draw is a tentative selection.
Southampton vs Manchester United
While the visitors have historically had the measure of Southampton, the recent form of both sides suggests this encounter could be different. The home side is on something of an upswing, while United seem to be erratic lately. This could spell an upset and make Southampton a fair value betting proposition.
Chelsea vs Sheffield United
The home side will be aiming to vault up the Premier League log with an easy victory here. While Sheffield United fans may feel their fair recent form could prevent that, it is most likely wishful thinking. Chelsea is a cut above in almost all departments and barring some major slip-ups are a confident selection for this encounter.
Juventus vs Napoli
With none of the last five head to head clashes resulting in a draw, it seems like one needs to select an outright winner. Juventus ticks most of the boxes and is the obvious selection. While their opposition is a classy side, it does seem like the visitors will be able to prevail.
Villarreal vs Real Madrid
La Liga is in full swing as Real Madrid travel to face the normally formidable Villareal. The home side has lost some of its lustre lately though and it’s difficult to be optimistic about their prospects in this encounter. As such, the visitors are selected to enjoy an easy victory.
