Premier League week 6 – Predictions, betting tips and team news

It’s week 6 of the Premier League and there’s plenty of games to look forward to over the course of the weekend.

Leicester City vs Tottenham

Sat 21/09 at 12.30

Leicester City welcome Tottenham to the King Power Stadium in the early kick-off this weekend.

After many people thought Leicester would gain all three points at Old Trafford last weekend, The Foxes eventually lost 1-0. Brendan Rodgers will look to get his team back to winning ways this weekend after a great start to the season.

Rodgers is expected to name a similar team to the one that lost in Manchester last weekend.

The Lilywhites will aim to build on their comfortable 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend. Son (2), Lamela and Patrick van Aanholt all made the scoresheet.

In the Champions League, Tottenham let a first-half lead slip against Olympiacos during the week, with the game ending in a draw.

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to name a similar team to the one that beat Crystal Palace with the exception of Ryan Sessegnon who did not travel to Olympiacos midweek.

Manchester City vs Watford

Sat 21/09 at 15.00

Manchester City host Watford in the first of the 3 pm kickoffs this Saturday.

After a great run for The Sky Blues, a slip up against Norwich City last weekend has left them 5 points adrift of Liverpool at the top of the table. Goals from Aguero and Rodrigo were not enough to overturn an early Norwich lead.

Despite Man City having the majority of possession, they were unable to turn their pressure into goals and their defence was poor.

After a midweek game against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, you’d expect Guardiola to rotate his squad for the visit of Watford. John Stones, Leroy Sane and Laporte are all absent for this one.

Watford have had a difficult start to the 2019/20 season with a new manager already in place. With two draws against Newcastle and Arsenal in their latest games, Watford will be looking to build on these results. This is likely to be difficult with Man City in town.

West Ham vs Manchester United

Sun 22/09 at 14.00

Manchester United make the trip to West Ham this weekend.

Sitting 8th in the table, The Hammers have had a mixed bag of results so far this season. Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to get his team back to winning ways but with Man Utd in town that could prove quite difficult.

Last time out, West Ham only managed a goalless draw at Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, The Red Devils will be looking to build on their result last weekend. They beat Leicester City 1-0 at Old Trafford. Sitting 4th in the table, Solsjkaer will be pleased with their position considering their mixed results so far this season.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa

Sun 22/09 at 16.30

Arsenal host Aston Villa at The Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Last weekend, Arsenal drew with Watford at Vicarage Road after letting a two-goal lead slip away in the second half. Aubameyang was twice on target for The Gunners.

The defensive display in the second 45 let them down with the game ultimately ending in a draw after the Hornets fought their way back.

Last time out, Aston Villa drew with West Ham in a goalless draw on Monday night. Sitting 17th in the table, Aston Villa are in need of some points.

Chelsea vs Liverpool

Sun 22/09 at 16.30

Chelsea host Liverpool in the other late kickoff on Sunday afternoon.

Last time out, Chelsea beat Wolves 5-2 in a 7 goal thriller. Youngsters, Fikayo Tomori, Tammy Abraham (hat trick) and Mason Mount made it onto the scoresheet last time out.

Manager, Frank Lampard is likely to keep faith in his young players for a tough fixture against Liverpool.

With Rudiger returning from injury last weekend, Lampard is likely to give him more game this weekend.

Liverpool is the only team not to lose this season and they’re in great form ahead of the visit to London this weekend. Liverpool has won 15 games league games in a row.

Last time out they comfortably beat Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield with Mane (2) and Salah both netting The Reds.

After a midweek game against Napoli in the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp is expected to rotate his team. Divock Origi is expected to miss the trip to London due to injury last weekend.
