League football is back and I am happy. I can finally lose my voice celebrating a late goal or supporting my point in a discussion.
There will be 7 matches played in the first set of games. Some of the matches will surely be exciting to watch.
I will do a quick preview of some of the matches and give my prediction.
Liverpool Vs Newcastle united
League leaders face strugglers Newcastle united at Anfield. They are huge favourites to pick up all 3 points and will want to do so with a comprehensive victory. Newcastle have been struggling this season but are inspired with their away victory over Tottenham in Game week 3. They drew Watford in the Game Week 4 and now face Liverpool.
I think this will not be an easy victory for Liverpool. Newcastle are struggling and that will only see them pack the bus. There is the possibility of atleast 2 goals in the second half. Liverpool may score first in the first half and will want to score more in the second half in order to seal the win.
Newcastle will also come out to get a goal or two in the second half. It's a perfect time for goals.
I think Over 1.5goals in the second half at odds 1.69 looks good.
Norwich Vs Manchester city
Manchester City draw against Tottenham is a very hard pill to take. They were the better team and could have scored 5 if not for the profligacy of their attackers. They have responded well after the draw by scoring 7 goals in their last 2 matches. They now face newcomers Norwich. Manchester City are expected to win this match and they will do so with lot of goals.
Norwich style of play is too open and that's how they have been from time. They also want to play possession football rather than packing the bus like most newcomers. This will be their mistake. The likes of Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne played superbly for their respective national teams and will want to carry the same form into this match.
I expect goals. Lot of goals. Over 3.5 goals look good at odds 1.66. Over 1.5 goals first half goal looks good at odd 1.75. Over 1.5 goals second half goals look good at 1.45.
Manchester city over 3.5 goals at odd 2.23 is the sugar in the tea.
