Saturday, 9th February
Fulham – Manchester United; 13:15
Betting suggestion: Manchester United -0,75 @1,80 Pinnacle
Short preview: Claudio Ranieri is written in the history of Premier League with huge letters, fact. But at 67 years, and with in my opinion pretty “old fashion” ideas I think that he isn’t a solution for Fulham. They have a pretty interesting squad but seems like that they cannot reach their potentials on the pitch. All these players simply don’t work as they should together, and the result is the 19th place with 7 points under the relegation zone. Tomorrow, they will meet with the team in form lately – Man United won 9 of last 10 matches and they are successfully raising on the league table. Right now they are 5th, with winning 22 of possible 24 points in the last 8 matches and in my opinion a team as Fulham should not cause them bigger problems.
Huddersfield – Arsenal; 16:00
Betting suggestion: Arsenal -0,75 @1,81 Pinnacle
Short preview: I am surprised to see odds on Arsenal as high as 1,80 on Asian handicap, as they are playing against the team which seems as they have given up. Huddersfield lost 12 of last 13 matches, and in my opinion, odds on Arsenal should be around 1,50 if not lower. The Gunners have definitely a way better team, capable of not just winning but winning with a big difference here, but especially thanks to their poor away form – 4 defeats, 1 draw in last 5 matches, Gunners are currently on 6th position, 2 points behind Manchester United, 3 points behind Chelsea, but there is more than enough matches to enter the top 4. Honestly, I am doubtful about it as both United, and Chelsea are better teams at the moment, but that doesn’t change the fact that Arsenal should beat poor Huddersfield, who is sitting at the bottom of the league with only 11 points in 25 matches.
Southampton – Cardiff, 16:00
Betting suggestion: Southampton -0,5 @1,80
Short preview: For those two teams, that is a typical “6 pointer” as both are currently in places where every single point is gonna be important. Cardiff broke their winless streak with a 2-0 win over Bournemouth, where plenty of emotions were part of the match due to the tragedy which happened to their record signing Emiliano Sala and the pilot Ibbotson. Therefore their huge hope won’t be able to help them and Cardiff will, in my opinion, continue with having problems offensively. Southampton, on the other hand, won a solid amount of points lately (9 in last 5 matches) and if they continue playing with this tempo, they might even escape the danger zone before the “final run” even begins. To do so, this match is ultra important for them, as they are facing one of the weakest sides in Premier League at the moment.
