The first of three Premier League match days this week concludes on Sunday with the final four fixtures on what could well be a pivotal day at both ends of the table for some pretty big clubs who are in action.
There are two matches which are live on TV on Sunday while the other two are away from the spotlight in the UK but there are plenty of ways of keeping up with the action over the course of the afternoon.
Sunday’s fixtures are as follows:
Norwich City v Arsenal 14.00
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Sheffield United 14.00
Leicester City v Everton 16.30
Manchester United v Aston Villa 16.30
The two TV matches affect things at the bottom end of the table as well as the top on Sunday and they begin when the Arsenal era post Unai Emery starts off with a tricky trip to Norfolk to take on a Norwich City side who they should beat but Carrow Road is a venue where Manchester City have already been knocked off at. Once that one is done the attention moves to the King Power Stadium where Leicester City will look to move clear into second place in the table when they entertain an Everton side under all sorts of pressure.
Away from the cameras Wolverhampton Wanderers had an eventful contest on Thursday evening in the Europa League and they will be hoping for a much more straightforward outing on Sunday when they host a Sheffield United side who are ticking along nicely this term. The other match away from the UK cameras comes from Old Trafford where Aston Villa will be looking to build on their fine win over Newcastle United on Monday night when they take on a Manchester United team who haven’t had the best of weeks.
My betting attention comes in the two TV matches on Sunday with the first one being over 3.25 goals in the match between Norwich City and Arsenal. Games at Carrow Road this season have been loaded with goals and I just don’t see how that will be different here. Unai Emery might have left Arsenal but that useless defence still remains and there is nothing that Freddie Ljungberg can do to solve that. The bare facts are the personnel isn’t good enough. Norwich love to attack but they are vulnerable to good attacks as Liverpool and Manchester United among others have shown this season. This feels like one of those 2-2 or 3-2 games that Arsenal are frequently involved in so I like the over here.
Leicester City were my dark horses to go well right back to when I wrote my Premier League outright preview and they are living up to that billing and I expect them to take care of an Everton side who have been little better than useless under Marco Silva and who are under all sorts of pressure with the run of fixtures they are about to embark on. It seems as though nothing is stopping Leicester at the present time and they have that wonderful combination going on where they are scoring loads of goals and barely conceding any. I expect them to maintain that here so I’m happy to be on the Foxes on the Asian lines.
