Brace yourself for a battle between two clubs who currently occupy the 2nd and 3rd spots on the Premier League table. Who will win? Read our latest Southampton vs Manchester City preview for the latest updates!
Southampton started this Premier League season in a surprisingly strong fashion and have defied many odds to come to the club’s current 2nd place positioning on the table today. There were even rumours or tip-offs prior to the start of the season that Southampton would be one of the teams that would likely face relegation. This weekend, the Saints of Southampton will be hosting Manchester City, who are just 2 points behind them in the 3rd spot on the Premier League table. If Manchester City is able to pull through with an away win in this match, the club will have the chance to leapfrog their way upward in the table and that is an entirely possible scenario as Manchester City’s team morale recently received a healthy boost thanks to a huge mid-week win over Bayern Munich. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero propelled the club to victory with a hat-trick against their European counterparts but will Aguero be capable of overcoming Southampton’s tight and solid defense this Sunday?
Prediction: Southampton wins 2-1
With 5 consecutive Premier League wins on the board, Newcastle United is strongly buoyed by their recent success. This winning streak is the longest streak by any team this season and could not have come at a better time as it was not too long ago that some Newcastle United fans were calling for the resignation of manager Alan Pardew after the Magpies launched their Premier League season run with a rocky start. The Hammers, on the other hand, lost their last Premier League match and drew the last two matches before that. However, West Ham will have their reliable big guns back to help the club turn things around for the better.
Both teams last played against each other early this year in January with Newcastle United winning the match 3-1. Prior to that, they met on the field in August 2013 and drew 1-1. This time around, Newcastle will no doubt be actively seeking to continue their winning streak while hosts West Ham United will be equally active and eager to break that streak.
Prediction: Newcastle United and West Ham United draw 1-1
Don’t forget to watch this upcoming match to find out if Newcastle United will be able to continue their winning streak. Also, stay tuned for more predictions by 128Casino like this West Ham United vs Newcastle United preview!
Are the Red Devils on the road to recovery after their win against the Gunners? Will their next match be a resounding success? Read more about 128Casino‘s predictions with the latest Manchester United vs Hull City preview!
After a morale boosting away win against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium that helped the Red Devils climb to the 4th position on the Premier League table, former European Champions Manchester United will be looking to take advantage of Hull City’s struggles to further strengthen the club’s position. The win against longtime arch-rivals Arsenal was one that was much needed and couldn’t have come at a better time, also making it Manchester United’s first away win while on the road this season. This weekend, the Red Devils will have the home advantage against the wildly unpredictable Hull City, who are placed at the 17th spot (3rd from the bottom) of the table whereas host Manchester United is placed 4th (3rd from the top) of the Premier League table.
Popular opinion is that prior to the club’s defeat over Arsenal, the Red Devils were still considered to be greatly underachieving. Hopes had been raised that the “new” Manchester United under Louis van Gaal’s direction would have no problems clinching a top spot in the Premier League table. Despite the team’s current 4th place positioning, the club had not enjoyed a smooth ride getting there, with some even pointing out that the Red Devils’ win against Arsenal was down to luck. Nevertheless, Manchester United is expected to fare much better than Hull City, who have only won 2 games this season and who are clear of the Premier League relegation zone by just 1 point.
Prediction: Manchester United wins 2-1
Defending champions Liverpool have been experiencing a rough Premier League season. 128Casino predicts another outcome with an all-new Liverpool vs Stoke City preview.
Liverpool fans have been sorely disappointed this season by the poor performance of the Reds and any hope fans might have had that the defending champions would rise up to the challenge for Premier League championship title this year were summarily dashed. After a fantastic performance and stint last season, for the Reds to make such an underwhelming return to the field was certainly surprising. With 3 consecutive losses dogging the team and a total of 5 consecutive losses both domestically and internationally, Liverpool will need to clinch this home win at Anfield for the defending champions to get back on track. Rumours are running wild that Reds manager Brendan Rodgers’s career at Liverpool might be short-lived if a solution for the team isn’t found soon. Needless to say, a home win for Liverpool in this upcoming match is of capital importance. Fortunately for the hosts, Stoke City are themselves one of the most inconsistent teams in the league this season by achieving surprising wins then going on to lose matches to a less dominant club. Stoke City’s inconsistency may just be the in and advantage Liverpool’s been looking for to redeem themselves and the Reds are the favourites to win this one.
Prediction: Liverpool wins 2-1
Reeling from the unwelcome and somewhat unexpected loss against longtime rivals Manchester United, Arsenal is regarded to be in poor form and greatly under-performing. The match against the Red Devils was slated to be a somewhat easy win for the Gunners especially since the Red Devils had been having a much harder time rebuilding the team after ex-manager Alex Ferguson’s departure, but alas, that was not meant to be. Looking to recoup their Premier League run in this upcoming match, the Gunners will be facing the Baggies of West Bromwich Albion in both teams’ 13th game of the season. Both teams met earlier this year in May which resulted in a 1-0 win for Arsenal.
