Premier league football preview – Week 23 – 2018/19

By January 18, 2019Weekly Preview
Premier League Weekly Preview 23

We’ve got another weekend of Premier League football to look forward to. Lucky for you there’s plenty of games you can profit from. The highlight being the Arsenal vs Chelsea game on Saturday evening, definitely one to watch.

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Sat 19/01 at 15.00

The pressure remains on Liverpool to keep putting in good results and increase their points tally at the top of the table. However, Liverpool are still unbeaten at home this season meaning Crystal Palace will need to be firing on all cylinders to record a win at Anfield.

A bonus for Palace is that Liverpool’s defensive worries have reached a new low with Trent Alexander-Arnold also now out for up to a month.

Crystal Palace were the last team to beat Liverpool at Anfield, in the league, in April 2017. But it’s fair to say Liverpool are a different outfit this season. But if anyone can do it again, Crystal Palace certainly can.

In terms of Palace team news, Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey are set to miss this one after suffering injuries against Watford. Christian Benteke is likely to make the substitutes bench again, recovering from a long term injury.

I’m going for a Liverpool win.

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Sat 19/01 at 17.30

The one game you can’t miss this weekend.

Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates on Saturday evening. This London Derby could prove pivotal in terms of the League and therefore hopes of Champions League qualification for next season.

Having come out second best against West Ham last weekend, Arsenal will be looking to get back to winning ways. A loss this weekend could see Man Utd jump ahead of them into fifth position.

After a solid performance against Newcastle last week, Chelsea will be looking to continue their run of form over the last few weeks.

Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata’s future is still up in the air and it will be interesting to see if he is picked for this one.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek looks set to be sidelined after suffering a back injury against Forest.

Arsenal also have a number of injuries to contend with: Danny Welbeck, Rob Holding and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all missing this London derby.

At odds of 7/5 I’m going for a Chelsea win.

Huddersfield vs Man City

Sun 20/01 at 13.30

Huddersfield host Man City in the early kick off on Sunday.

With just 11 points and 2 wins so far this season, Huddersfield are sitting right at the bottom of the table. Meanwhile, Man City are in great form and continue to pile the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the league.

To add to The Terriers worries, their manager David Wagner left during the week meaning they’re without a full time manager this weekend. Mark Hudson takes the caretaker manager role.

For Huddersfield, captain Tommy Smith is set to make the bench again. Man City’s Vincent Kompany is a doubt for this tie and Claudio Bravo remains on the sidelines thanks to a long term injury.

Will Man City replicate their 6-1 drilling, when the sides met last time?

This is set to be a goal fest (sorry Huddersfield fans!!).

Fulham vs Tottenham

Sun 20/01 at 14.00

Fulham welcome Tottenham in the last League match of the weekend.

Having lost just once in their last 14 away games, Tottenham are in good form. Meanwhile Claudio Ranieri’s side are struggling to get themselves out of the relegation zone and this weekend’s match, does not make the job any easier.

Fulham have conceded a whopping 49 goals this season, more than anyone else in the League.

There are no new injury concerns for the hosts and Alfie Mawson and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa remain sidelined with longer term injuries.

At the other end, Harry Kane is absent until at least March after suffering a late injury against Man Utd last weekend. Lucas Moura is also set to miss this one for Tottenham.

I predict an easy Tottenham win.
