It’s still early days in the Premier League, but the season is shaping up to be a hugely exciting one. Liverpool have already maintained their stronghold in the top of the league by being the only team to win three games in a row so far. However, like a raging bull, Manchester City are storming behind to reclaim their top spot by piling up the dominating victories.
In matchday 4, we might see a bit of movement at the top, and it’s a good opportunity to review the best sites to place your bet before wagering on this weekend’s outcomes. Liverpool faces the stingy Burnley, who have themselves started the season strongly thanks to Ashley Barnes’ goal-scoring heroics. City faces a temperamental Brighton side and should continue their momentum. Behind them, Leicester City are still undefeated and piling up a strong challenge inspired by Brendan Rodgers.
Manchester United and Chelsea have experienced some topsy-turvy form they’ll look to make right in the weekend. Arsenal face bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who are allegedly not in the perfect condition mentally as per their manager Mauricio Pochettino. At the other end of the table, Wolves are yet to pick up a win and even last season’s FA Cup finalists Watford are struggling, with Javi Gracia’s job now on the line.
Top 3 games to watch
Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur
The first North London derby of the season falls exactly when both Arsenal and Spurs need it after suffering embarrassing defeats last week. Both the sides need a momentum booster to get back to winning ways and that hunger for a win could create another end-to-end thriller at the Emirates Stadium. Spurs defeated Arsenal at the Emirates last year in the EFL Cup, but need to get their heads straight for another one. Pochettino needs Kane, Son and co to start firing, while Unai Emery will hope his side’s fiery form at home continues with Nicolas Pepe set to make his full home debut.
Burnley vs Liverpool
This will be a feisty affair for sure, mostly because of the clash of styles. Jurgen Klopp will want to keep the grip tight on the top place, but needs to improve his defensive organization. Going forward, his bombastic trio should create enough fireworks but could be ill-affected if his defence lets up. Sean Dyche’s going to employ a physical, old-school “hoofball” style to test their aptitude and knowing the clinical form Barnes is in, things good get tough at Turf Moor for the leaders.
Everton vs Wolves
A battle between two European hopefuls, Everton and Wolves have both suffered hiccups in the early season. With both needing three points, this fixture’s going to be an action-packed affair. With Everton’s talented front-line and Wolves opportunistic attitude, things could get frantic, but produce some scintillating stuff for the neutral.
