Premier League 2019/20: Betting tips and predictions for Gameweek 7
How time flies! It seems like just yesterday that the 2019/20 edition of the Premier League commenced and we are now already in Gameweek 7.
Defending European champions Liverpool have clearly made winning the title this season their main priority. With a host of players continuing their electric form from last season, Jurgen Klopp's men have been faultless so far with 6 wins from 6 games.
Last season's champions, Manchester City have unexpectedly stumbled in two games that they should have won comfortably. With first-choice central defensive pairing Aymeric Laporte and John Stones out with injury for an extended period, chances are that more points will be dropped by Pep Guardiola's Cityzens.
The lies about the Premier League being a "Big 6" competition continue to unravel as the chasing pack - Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United - have failed to consistently impress.
Review of Gameweek 6
Gameweek 6 delivered big-time in terms of goals and high-octane drama. The weekend's action commenced on Friday as Bournemouth travelled to St Mary's and handed out a 3-1 thrashing to Southampton with both Wilsons; Callum and Harry getting on the scoresheet.
On Saturday, the lunchtime kick-off saw Leicester City battle from a goal down to beat a disjointed Spurs side 2-1 thanks to a James Maddison screamer.
Burnley brought Norwich City back down to earth with a 2-0 home win as Sheffield United won away at Everton by the same scoreline.
4 goals in the first 15 minutes saw Manchester City respond to Gameweek 5's defeat at Norwich with an 8-0 thrashing of perennial victims, Watford.
It was a boring affair at St James' Park as Newcastle United held Brighton to a 0-0 draw.
On Sunday, West Ham United comfortably beat Manchester United 2-0 while at Selhurst Park, it was a 1-1 draw between Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Arsenal needed a very late Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang freekick to seal a 3-2 win over Aston Villa after having had fullback Ainsley Maitland-Niles sent off.
The weekend's star match saw two well-taken set-pieces hand Liverpool a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge over a plucky Chelsea side.
