We have two games in the Championship on Friday night and as far as betting goes, the one to be concentrating on is certainly Fulham against Wigan. This is a game that the home side really should be winning, they look to be a class above compared to Wigan based on what we have seen so far, and we fancy them to record a comfortable victory.
In terms of recent form, both teams come into this game with similar records,
Sheffield United host Sunderland in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night, with the Premier League team looking to remain in this competition at the expense of their League One opponents. This is far from the most important competition in the calendar for United, but with a fair sized squad and players waiting for opportunities who were promoted with them last season from the Championship, they have plenty of options when it comes to who they play here.
The EFL Cup isn’t always the easiest competition to bet on with question marks hanging over what kind of teams we will actually see on the field. However, one thing that helps punters is when the games mean something a little more than normal, and that is certainly the case here. Premier League club Southampton travel to Portsmouth for their meeting on Tuesday night, a journey that isn’t too far, and the fact that this is the South Coast Derby is going to ensure that both teams take it far more seriously than they normally would take an EFL Cup game.
The League Cup is a competition that divides opinion as far as punters go. We have seen many big name sides take an early exit from the competition, but the competition can offer value to those who are prepared to take a chance on someone at a bigger price. That is exactly what I am going to do on Tuesday, with Sheffield Wednesday appearing to offer great value against Everton at Hillsborough.
Everton have been very poor so far this season,
Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool head to London on Sunday for a meeting with Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. The two teams are expected to be up and around the top of the Premier League this season, although Liverpool are the ones with genuine title ambitions, while Chelsea will be aiming for a top four finish.
So far so good for The Redmen as they have five wins out of five and set the early pace in the Premier League.
The Premier League is back this weekend following some exciting midweek European action, and there is a lot to look forward to. The next few games are going to give us all a pretty good idea of who the contenders are going to be and, in equal measure, who will be the pretenders. The game that we’ll be looking at today will be contested between Manchester City and Watford, which will serve as a rematch of the 2019 FA Cup Final which saw City run out as winners over a dismal Watford side.
The first game of the weekend in the Premier League takes place on Friday night, with a game on the south coast of England. Southampton host Bournemouth and both teams should feel good about what they have done recently going into this one. They are both performing well, have picked up early wins and if this is a taste of what is to come for the remainder of the season then I am sure both sets of fans will be happy.
This weekend’s Premier League action has already provided us with a lot of great moments, and we can see that continuing as we look ahead to Monday Night Football. There is a lot of potential in what these two teams could produce in the second city, and by these two teams, we of course mean Aston Villa and West Ham United. Both clubs have had pretty mixed starts to the campaign and even that may be an understatement,
The international break has come to an end, with the next set of international fixtures taking place next month. In the meantime, we’ve got some domestic football to get into as the Premier League returns to our lives. All twenty sides have a great chance at improving their fortunes at such an early point of the season, but in a few games time, we’ll have a pretty good idea as to what we can expect.
Premier League football returns this weekend as we bid farewell to the international break – for around a month or so. There are many great games for us to look forward to up and down the top flight of English football, but one that we’re looking forward to more so than most is Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Chelsea. Nuno’s side are still going in search of their first win in the Premier League this season, whereas Frank Lampard’s Blues are really struggling to make the kind of impact that would lead critics to believe hiring the legendary midfielder was a good idea.
Championship football is set to return this weekend as we put the international break to one side and focus on the domestic game once again. The division has been consistently referred to as the most exciting second tier in world football, and it’s kind of hard to argue with that. There are so many sides that have a chance of making a push for promotion to the top flight of the English game, but reaching the Premier League is easier said than done.
We have seen Newport County on a few good cup runs in recent years and we could be about to see them go on another. They begin their EFL Trophy campaign on Wednesday night with a group game against West Ham U21, and this is a game they are fancied to win.
We often see Premier League teams play weakened youth teams in this competition and with The Hammers having a few of their better youngsters away on international duty,
