Matchday 7 EPL Preview & Odds Comparison
Matchday 7 of the 2016-17 Premier League sees table-topping Manchester City travel to Tottenham Hotspur hoping to extend their 100% record. Can they do it?

Teams To Back In The EPL

By Matt Pitt

Tottenham Hotspur (+245) vs. Manchester City (+105)

Alli

 

Tottenham Hotspur haven’t really got out of second gear so far this season, yet they still find themselves second in the league with only their weekend opponents, Manchester City, above them. 

This game is Spurs’ toughest test of the season so far. Facing Manchester City is difficult at the best of times, but Spurs are without their star striker Harry Kane, while Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, and Mousa Dembele are all doubtful.

City will be without Vincent Kompany and Kevin de Bruyne, the latter being in scintillating form this season and a major blow, but Pep Guardiola has an extremely strong squad of players at his disposal and could have Fabian Delph fit again.

I can see City winning this game and making it seven wins from seven, but they are not going to find it easy by any stretch of the imagination. A 2-1 away win is around the +750 mark, with a 1-1 draw +525. 

Bovada have Dele Alli as +2800 to score at anytime and that seem ridiculously long, even if the youngster only has one goal in his last nine games.

Pick: Manchester City to win at +105

Manchester United (-335) vs. Stoke City (+900)

Rashford

After losing three games in the space of a week, Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United turned on the style and swept aside champions Leicester City 4-1, leading 4-0 by half time. Although Leicester defended like schoolboys, United were devastating in attack, which spells bad news for travelling Stoke City who have conceded 15 goals in six games.

Mark Hughes’ Stoke are still looking for their first win of the new season having drawn two and lost six of their fixtures to date. Stoke drew 1-1 on the road to West Bromwich Albion last time out, conceding late to share the spoils.

Stoke may lay in 19th place, but they are a much better side than their league position suggests. That said, I can’t see them shutting out Manchester United this weekend. In fact it could be a rout if Mourinho gets his tactics right and his side play like they did in spells against Leicester.

The over 2.5 goals market at -150 looks like a good bet, particularly if you can parlay it with a United win as betting on United to win alone is -335 which seems too short in my eyes.

A 3-0 win for United is around +650 with 2-0 at +475. I also like the +100 on Marcus Rashford to score during the 90-minutes simply because the young man is on fire right now and looks like a legitimate superstar.

Pick: Manchester United to win 2-0 at +475

Swansea City (+525) vs. Liverpool (-210)

Klopp

 

Swansea City could fall into the relegation zone this weekend if they fail to beat in-form Liverpool and West Ham United beat Middlesbrough. If this happens, we could see the first managerial casualty of the season because Francesco Guidolin is already under pressure, touted to be replaced by Ryan Giggs.

Liverpool are flying this season under Jurgen Klopp’s guidance and look like they could challenge for the title. A slip up at Burnley aside, Liverpool have looked almost unstoppable, putting four goals past both Arsenal and Leicester, and five past Hull.

The free-flowing attacking style Klopp makes Liverpool play may leave them open at the back, but Swansea don’t really have the attacking players to threaten Liverpool, and they could find themselves on the back of a real hiding come the end of the game.

Over 2.5 goals at -170 looks to be an absolute certain outcome with a 3-0 Liverpool win priced in at +900. A 2-1 Liverpool win is more likely at +700.

Pick: Liverpool-Liverpool Half Time/Full Time result at -110
