Premier League Betting Tips and Predictions: Week 6

Kai Havertz

Step right up for another week of brilliant UK football action.

We have selected five games from across the EPL, SPL and EFL Championship to get your weekend off to a flyer.

These are the matches we will be watching this week.

West Ham V Manchester City

City seemed to have re-found their mojo following their 5-2 defeat at home to Leicester last month, winning three of their last four.

With that in mind, they will be heading to the London Stadium full of confidence, enhanced by the knowledge that they haven’t dropped a point against the Hammers in 10 games.

West Ham though will be in buoyant mood themselves following their incredible comeback from three goals down against Spurs on Sunday. And even that draw followed back to back wins against Wolves and Leicester where the scored seven without reply.

At the end of the day, there should be plenty of goals, there usually are with these two, but City should walk away with maximum points. Manchester City to win and over 1.5 goals.

Norwich City V Wycombe Wanderers

There really isn’t very much reason for Wycombe to cling on to hope at Carrow Road this Saturday you wouldn’t feel. They are, after all, completely and utterly pointless.

The Canaries, on the other hand, have won their last two and are looking to make it three Championship wins on the spin.

Daniel Farke’s side are now eighth in the table and just a point shy of the play-off places as they look to bounce back into the Premier League following last year’s drop.

And, against opposition that have lost all six of their Championship matches to date and scored just one goal, while conceding 13, should comfortably make it three wins in three.

Manchester United V Chelsea

Both of these teams are lacking consistency so far this season, unless you count penalties awarded to Manchester who are yet to not be awarded a spot kick in 90 minutes this calendar decade.

However, that aside, this clash at Old Trafford is a seriously difficult showdown to judge.

On reflection, United, who were recently humiliated at home by both Crystal Palace and Tottenham, have everything to be concerned about.

Despite decent wins at Newcastle and Paris Saint-Germain, they look shaky to say the least and, after failing to secure their primary targets in the window, should be fearful of their heavy spending visitors.

Chelsea went big in the transfer market this window and ticked off everyone on the shopping list. The only problem is they don’t look a whole lot better for it.

In fact they looked a defensive mess against West Brom and Southampton.

With Chelsea providing plenty goal action at both ends and Manchester sure to get a penalty, we can definitely see this one ending in a score draw with over 1.5 goals.

Aberdeen V Celtic

Celtic head to Aberdeen on Sunday lunchtime fresh from defeat in the Old Firm derby last weekend.

The Bhoys also took in a European game in midweek and, with Covid and injury worries throughout, might see their squad stretched beyond its capabilities.

Their visitors are in good form and unbeaten in their last four games, taking a point last weekend from a 0-0 draw with Dundee United.

You would have to think that they would be happy with the same this time around and, with Celtic damaged, they will fancy their chances.

That said, the quality gap is still in place, even if it has narrowed, and I think Celtic will win. Just.

Arsenal V Leicester City

Arsenal will be relieved to know that Leicester will be missing Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Perreira, Wilfred Ndidi and very possibly Jamie Vardy for their trip to The Emirates.

Last week the Foxes lost at home to Villa without Vardy and they will surely be up against it here against an improving Gunners, not least because they have only won 2 of their last 10 away matches.

The home team, on the other hand, have only lost once in their last 15 games at the Emirates and recently knocked City out of the league cup at their own ground with a solid 2-0 win.

Arsenal could easily go one better here. Gunners to win, over 2.5 goals.
