Premier League picks: Back Manchester United and Arsenal to end blips
Manchester City have already forged ahead in the Premier League having enjoyed an unbeaten start to the campaign — but it’s not over yet.
They may be two points clear at the top after five games, but the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are all in pursuit.
Two of those go head-to-head this weekend as Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, while Manchester United host Leicester.
Manchester United v Leicester (Manchester United win @ 1.67)
Life is a little bit tricky for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho at the moment, mainly because he’s lost his last three successive games.
That’s put the pressure on, but they should have no trouble dispatching a Leicester side who were given a right run around in midweek.
Having been two goals up in the first half they were taken to extra time in the League Cup and subsequently suffered a painful defeat to Chelsea.
United on the other hand had no trouble, unsurprisingly, dispatching of Northampton. They’ve also only lost two of their last 12 home games.
Mourinho’s side are on the short side, but Leicester are winless away in the league in four so snap up the 1.67 for a United win with Sportsbet.io.
Arsenal v Chelsea (Arsenal win @ 2.34)
The biggest game in Europe this weekend takes place in the Premier League, with London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea going head-to-head.
With both sides currently sat on 10 points after five matches, there isn’t all that much to split them.
However, with Chelsea captain John Terry ruled out through injury, Arsenal will be confident of breaching Chelsea’s backline.
Since Terry suffered an injury, Chelsea have shipped four goals in two matches. In fact, the Blues have kept just one clean sheet in their previous 10.
There’s no doubting Chelsea love playing Arsenal, after all they haven’t lost in 10 Premier League games against the north London side.
However, Chelsea are a mush less imposing threat without their captain, leader, legend and Arsenal can take full advantage by winning at 2.34.
