English Premier League betting: Manchester United injury blow leaves them vulnerable

Manchester United vs Leicester City – Leicester City draw no bet @2.75

Leicester City head to Old Trafford following a strong start to the season which sees them sitting in 3rd place. They’re undefeated across their opening five competitive matches (W2, D3), and will take huge confidence from that form going into the game.

Their opponents, Manchester United have not been the same since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson and it looks like that will continue this season. With just one clean sheet in 19 competitive matches, Manchester United’s defence continues to be an issue. The Red Devils are also struggling up top, having scored less than 1.5 match goals in nine of their previous ten competitive games. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has also been dealt a huge triple injury blow ahead of the fixture with Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial all being ruled out of the game.

Norwich City vs Manchester City – Raheem Sterling to score anytime @1.61

The odds for Sterling to score anytime as the season goes on just keeps on dropping and dropping. He’s been on absolute fire for both club and country, scoring five goals in four games for Manchester City whilst netting six goals in four Euro qualifiers for England – that’s an average of over 1 goal per game!

Sterling comes face to face on Saturday night up with a Norwich City defence who have already conceded 10 goals in the opening four games with no other side in the Premier League having conceded more. Aguero to score anytime is priced at 1.40, but if you’re after more value I recommend Sterling anytime.

Liverpool vs Newcastle – Liverpool win, over 2 Liverpool goals & over 4 Liverpool corners @1.90

Liverpool and Newcastle have had some classic encounters over the years, but this time around, nothing but a thumping Liverpool win is to be expected, as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to build on their strong start to the season with a victory over Steve Bruce’s hit and miss Newcastle side.

Liverpool are heavy favourites for a straight win over Newcastle this weekend (1.14) with the Reds having not lost a match at Anfield since way back in May 2017. The two sides are worlds apart when it comes to class and quality which is why I fully expect Liverpool to be on top for most parts of the game and can see them getting plenty goals and corners.

Although Newcastle surprised everyone with their 1-0 victory over Spurs a few weeks back, they looked poor against both Norwich and Watford and will have little confidence going into this one. The Magpies have also been dealt with a huge injury blow going into the game with Sean Longstaff being ruled out after a ‘freak’ training ground injury.

Sheffield United vs Southampton – Sheffield United win @2.45

It’s fair to say that the Blades have shocked everyone so far this season. Tipped as a write off before a ball was even kicked, they have picked up some very good results so far this season and look like a side who belong in the top flight. At home they have been very strong, winning 10 out of their last 13 games at Bramall Lane.

The amount of confidence that they will take from their 2-2 comeback draw against Chelsea will be enormous. What that will have done to the atmosphere amongst the dressing room, training ground, fans and coaching staff will have huge effects of this weekend and I fully expect them to go into their game with Southampton wanting a win.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace – Harry Kane to score anytime @1.66

Just like Sterling, Kane has been on fire for both his club and country. The England captain has scored three goals in four games for Spurs so far this season and has netted six goals in four Euro qualifiers for England. Whilst he faced a huge backlash after missing a penalty in England’s 5-3 victory over Kosovo during the week, I fully expected him to use it as a tool to hit back at the critics this weekend.
