Premier League Fixtures and How They Shape the Table

Premier League Fixtures and How They Shape the Table

With big games and results happening every week. The Premier League is getting closer and closer to taking its final shape, the Champions League and the title race seem to be heading down to the wire. With the new coefficient rules, the team that finishes in fifth place also get Champions League football, which is a massive confidence boost for the teams in the Champions League race and an extra layer of security. 

The four big games this weekend are Arsenal vs. Brentford, Manchester United vs. Everton, Liverpool vs. Manchester City, and Aston Villa vs. Tottenham. 

Liverpool vs. Manchester City

This being arguably the biggest game in the Premier League over the last 6 years is not an understatement; many of the last Premier League winners have been decided during this fixture. Will Liverpool take a massive step towards giving Klopp the perfect goodbye gift? Or will Manchester City beat their Anfield curse? (Having not won at the stadium with a crowd since 2003.) Despite this, popular bookie Boylesports football odds today have City winning at lower odds. 

In the reverse fixture, a controversial VAR decision helped Liverpool keep a draw, and now we turn to the historic Anfield, with Liverpool hoping the fans will be able to spur them on to get a massive result, and with City fresh off a big Derby Day win on Saturday, this test is massive for both teams and could decide the title. 

 Arsenal vs. Brentford

As for Arsenal, they have the easier game this weekend. Brentford are a good team, but Arsenal’s squad is better by a big distance. Since Brentford got promoted, they have had some massive results against the biggest teams in the league. One example is their two wins against Manchester City last season. They can cause a shock and get a result, but the odds are in Arsenal’s favour, and everything below a win would feel like a massive missed opportunity for the Gunners. 

Aston Villa vs. Tottenham

Another one of the biggest and most important games of the season comes between two teams that few people would have predicted to be this high up in the league table. Aston Villa has been one of the surprise packages in the league this season, being in the Champions League race for all of the season. Aston Villa’s home record in the league has been one of the best, beating Manchester City and Arsenal at home in back-to-back games earlier in the season.

However, Tottenham have played very well this season, and their new manager, Ange Postecoglou, has been one of the best managers in the league this season. If either of the teams drops points, it makes a massive dent in that team’s chances. This feels like the game to decide the fourth-place spot. 

Manchester United vs. Everton

After back-to-back defeats for United, they need to prove something against Everton; if they drop points or especially lose, they will fall too far behind in the race for the Champions League. With Everton needing to win to keep their hopes of avoiding relegation alive, they will be very aggressive and up for the game. With the form of both teams slowly dropping off, this feels like it could be a deciding game at both ends of the table. United being at home is a massive advantage, and it is United’s game to lose. 

As the season gets closer to completion, every result matters, but with two of the biggest and most important games of the season happening this week, it is a very difficult weekend to predict. The statistics of each game are very important to pay attention to and help with your predictions. This is a massive week for the Premier League, and we are excited to see how it plays out.
