It’s fair to say that it hasn’t been the best of times for Manchester United fans this past couple of weeks. A 4-2 loss at Leicester was followed by going 2-0 down at half time at home to Atalanta in the Champions League. United did bounce back to win that game 3-2 in the second half, but their defensive frailties were exposed clinically by rivals Liverpool at the weekend.

That 5-0 home defeat for United was the biggest ever loss to their rivals on home soil in the Premier League era and Mo Salah became the first Premier League player to score a hat-trick against United at Old Trafford, and the last since Brazilian Ronaldo managed the feat in the Champions League many years ago.

It has been a sobering week for the Red Devils with speculation over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future, plus many pundits and fans claiming that signing Cristiano Ronaldo has played a significant part in the team becoming much less balanced, and far less effective, than it was last season.

Premier League Matchday Nine – Results

  • Arsenal 3-1 Aston Villa
  • Chelsea 7-0 Norwich City
  • Crystal Palace 1-1 Newcastle United
  • Leeds United 1-1 Wolves
  • Everton 2-5 Watford
  • Southampton 2-2 Burnley
  • Brighton 1-4 Manchester City
  • West Ham 1-0 Tottenham Hotspurs
  • Brentford 1-2 Leicester City
  • Manchester United 0-5 Liverpool

Wins for Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, combined with defeats for Brighton, Tottenham and Man Utd have seen a gap open up between the top three and the chasing pack. Chelsea lead the way by a point from Liverpool, who are still unbeaten this season, with Man City a further point back in third.

West Ham move into fourth after their win over Spurs, while wins for Arsenal and Leicester City have seen them close right up on the teams lying 5th to 8th, Brighton, Spurs, Man Utd and Everton all of whom lost this weekend.

At the foot of the table, Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley still occupy the bottom three places and all three are without a win this season, though Newcastle and Burnley did pick up points this week.

Premier League Matchday Ten – TipsPremier League numbers

Saturday 30th October

  • Leicester City v Arsenal (12.30pm)

These two teams have been in much improved form of late and this promises to be an exciting game at the King Power Stadium. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 6 EPL games, while Leicester have won all their last three, including two away from home. Both teams are on the fringes of the battle for a top six spot and a win here would be a big result for both. Arsenal’s form is much improved, but I feel Leicester is a tough place to go to get the win. As such, I am backing the draw here at 12/5.

  • Burnley v Brentford

Burnley are desperate to pick a win and kick start their season, but I think Brentford are a team that are very difficult to beat. Sean Dyche’s team has shown battling spirit to pick up points in some games of late, but I think Brentford have so much attacking threat and can counter-attack very effectively that they will be a real danger here. Burnley are draw specialists, but something tells me the Bees may just get the better of this. Take Brentford for the win at 17/10.

  • Liverpool v Brighton

Brighton have given Liverpool some tough matches at Anfield in recent years, but the form that the Reds are in at the moment, and with Brighton losing 4-1 at home to Man City last weekend, it is hard to make a case for anything other than a home win here. With Mo Salah in stunning goalscoring form and going for an 11th consecutive game to score in, I would expect Liverpool to come away with a relatively comfortable win here. Back Liverpool at 2/9.

  • Manchester City v Crystal Palace

Manchester City were eliminated in the Carabao Cup in midweek away to West Ham on penalties, but I feel they will bounce back to winning ways here against a Crystal Palace side that have started to look a lot more organised and disciplined under Patrick Vieira. I can’t see City enjoying a very big win here as they have in a number of home games this season, but they should do more than enough to claim the win. Take City at 1/7 here.

  • Newcastle United v Chelsea

Graeme Jones stood in as caretaker boss and oversaw his Newcastle team earning a point at Crystal Palace last week, however a home game with Chelsea looks to be extremely tough for the Magpies to claim their first win from. Chelsea are in superb form at the moment and a 7-0 win over Norwich will give them a massive boost of confidence ahead of this game. Newcastle will make it tough I am sure, but I think Chelsea take the win here at 4/11.

  • Watford v Southampton

Watford bounced back to life with a thumping win at Everton last week, while Southampton earned a draw at home to Burnley. I am not sure the Hornets are going to be abel to replicate their sensational display at Everton last week against a Southampton side that has proven difficult to beat this season. The Saints will keep it tight and look to hit on the break and if they can do that once in the game, I feel they will do enough to earn a draw here which is a 23/10 shot with bet365.

  • Tottenham v Manchester United (5.30pm)

Will Manchester United bounce back from last week’s awful defeat to Liverpool? The pressure is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for them to do that here but Spurs are in decent form at home and they are no pushovers by any means. With Harry Kane and Son in the team, they have troubled Manchester United before and in truth, the form of these teams is such that you can make a case for any result here. However, I am backing Spurs to get the job done at 15/8.

Sunday 31st October

  • Norwich City v Leeds United (2pm)

Norwich City have endured a miserable campaign so far and with just two points and no wins, plus by far and away the worst goal difference in the division, they do look out of their depth at this level. Leeds United have not started this season as strongly as the last but Marcelo Bielsa’s team are still doing the right things and playing hard and I see this weekend as being one where that approach will pay dividends for them. Take Leeds to win here at 11/10.

  • Aston Villa v West Ham (4.30pm)

Villa’s struggled have continued after their loss at Arsenal last week and they face a tricky task on Sunday against a West Ham side that are in excellent form at the moment. Dean Smith’s Villains have missed Jack Grealish’s influence on their play and I feel they are not the side that they were last season. West Ham are improving further and I am backing them to pick up another crucial three points on the road here. Take the Hammers to win at 6/4.

Monday 1st November

  • Wolves v Everton (8pm)

After a poor defeat to Watford last week, Everton now travel to Wolves in need of a win to resurrect what had otherwise been a decent start to the season. Rafa Benitez won’t win over many Evertonians with performances like last week but a win here would go a long way to repairing the damage. Wolves though look solid and I think at the moment, they should just do enough to clinch the win. Take Wolves at 6/5 to win a narrow one.

*Kick off times are 3pm unless stated. All odds shown were correct with bet365 as of Thursday 28th October but may have changed since.
