Premier League – Weekend Big Game Previews

By 26/08/2022No Comments

All eyes are on Liverpool going into matchday 4 of the Premier League as they are still searching for their first 3 points of the season. The Reds are winless in their first three games of the season since the 2012/13 season where they ended up finishing 7th, outside the European competition qualification places. Liverpool currently sit in 16th place on the PL table and are facing 15th place Bournemouth who’ve won only 1 of their 3 games (vs Aston Villa).

Liverpool face a Bournemouth side that has recently returned to the Premier League following their relegation from it in 2020. Naturally Bournemouth find themselves against the odds at a whopping 23.00, while Liverpool are the favourites with 1.10. While a draw between these two sides sits at an odds of 10.00 on the website. The Reds are notorious winners and I believe they can turn their fortunes around in this weekend’s game, I think they end their winless run here.

Leicester City travel to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea side that is desperate to get back to winning ways following a massive 3-0 defeat at the hands of Leeds United. Chelsea haven’t won a game since the opening week of the season, a 1-0 victory against Everton, while the Foxes haven’t won a single game out of their three games this season. They go into this one having earned just 1 point with a draw against Brentford on opening day and then lost the following 2 games to Arsenal and Southampton respectively.

On the Chelsea are favourites with odds of 1.40 and Leicester the underdogs with odds of 8.00, and a draw with odds of 4.75. I think the hunger and desire to turn things around by Thomas Tuchel and his men will outweigh Leicester and so I can trust Chelsea to win this one. I am expecting both teams to score in this one though.

Super Sunday is the day of West Ham vs Aston Villa at the Villa Park, a game that will be tightly contested since both teams are looking to pick up form. West Ham have suffered 3 losses out of 3 this season and are yet to score a goal this season. Aston Villa on the other hand have only won a single match out of the three and lost twice, the Villains will be looking to take advantage of their opponent’s misery and come away with all three points. The Hammers however are no pushover and if it’s anything we’ve seen from them since David Moyes’ appointment is that they are a highly competitive team and you can’t write them off.

The odds are tight between the two teams, and they are not that far off of each other. The places hosts, Villa, as the underdogs going into this one with an odds-against of 2.30 and West Ham favourites with odds of 3.10, and a draw between these two sides at an odds of 3.40. As mentioned it is going to be a tightly contested match between the two sides, and I do think a draw is highly possible between the two.
