Two London derbies and a basement clash on the south coast!
The ball is rolling again in the Premier League! For the 8th matchday, odds and tips are presented in a nutshell. The London derby between Brentford and Chelsea is the most attractive match in this round. The promoted team has been playing great so far and wants to prove its quality against the top of the table as well.
In addition, the basement duel between Southampton and Leeds is about important points, because both could slip to a relegation place in case of a defeat. Furthermore, Norwich, who are bottom of the table, will be hoping for their first win of the season. Their next attempt, however, will be against the in-form Hovarians.
United Kingdom Watford v Liverpool United Kingdom – 16 October, 13:30
The Hornets continue to get nowhere: after their second win of the season at Norwich on the third-last matchday, there was some hope of improvement, but that sentiment has long since evaporated at Watford after a subsequent draw against Newcastle and a defeat at Leeds.
Ismail Sarr alone is convincing in attack with four goals already, which means the Senegalese has scored more than half of all Watford goals. A line-up that quickly makes it clear that he is currently usually the sole entertainer in the home side’s attack.
The Reds, for their part, travel with two recent draws against the champions from Manchester and promoted Brentford in their baggage. Liverpool are the only unbeaten team in the British top flight and only Chelsea are better in the table than Jürgen Klopp’s team.
For the match at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on matchday 8, tips on more than one goal after half-time seem profitable. In the home games of the home side, two thirds of the nine goals scored this season have come after the tea break and this also applies to the away games of the Mersey side
Furthermore, Watford are unlikely to withstand the pressure of the Premier League’s most prolific attack in the second half of the game
United Kingdom Aston Villa v Wolverhampton United Kingdom – Oct 16, 4:00pm
The Villans are currently lacking consistency. Their record is completely balanced with three wins and three defeats and one defeat. Now the Birmingham side will be hoping for home advantage: they have yet to lose any of their three league games at Villa Park this season and have conceded just one goal.
Wolves, however, have been strong away from home recently: Wins at Watford and Southampton were both recorded with a clean sheet for good measure. With three wins from the last four rounds of matches the form is also basically pointing upwards
Therefore, for the evenly matched Premier League clash in Matchday 8, predictions on a draw are a good idea
United Kingdom Southampton v Leeds United United Kingdom – 16 October, 16:00
The Saints are still waiting for their first win of the season. So the start to the season has been poor and the departure of Danny Ings has left a huge gap in the attack. Only five goals show the great extent of the construction site in the Hasenhüttl eleven’s attack. Only the Canaries at the bottom of the table score fewer goals.
Leeds, a similarly weak competitor, will be travelling to Southampton, who are just ahead of them in the table. At least the players from the Steel City got their first win of the season on the last matchday. They deservedly beat Watford 1-0.
For the upcoming clash at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League on Matchday 8, the betting odds on the double chance are therefore in favour of the visitors, who can play more freely thanks to the long-awaited victory.
United Kingdom Leicester v Manchester United United Kingdom – 16 October, 16:00
The Foxes have been waiting for their next win for four rounds of matches and currently find themselves only 13th in the table. At least Jamie Vardy can be relied on: the striker has scored six goals and scored at least once on five of seven matchdays.
Manchester United, however, is an opponent who feels particularly at home away from home: The Red Devils have not lost in the Premier League for 29 guest appearances and thus have the longest series of this kind in the history of the league.
However, given Vardy’s tremendous goalscoring prowess, who leads the scoring charts along with Liverpool’s Mo Salah and was off during the international break, odds on his next goal celebrations are particularly interesting in this matchday 8 Premier League clash!
United Kingdom Manchester City v Burnley United Kingdom – 16 October, 16:00
The Citizens recently picked up a draw at Anfield Road, overcoming their Champions League hangover after a defeat at PSG. In the league, Manchester are also basically stable.
They haven’t lost a Premier League match since the opening defeat to Tottenham and the return of Kevin de Bruyne has made a key player available again in attacking midfield. The Belgian redhead also provided Guardiola’s side with an equaliser in his second league match as part of the starting eleven at Liverpool.
The Clarets, for their part, are without a win this season and have lost four of their last four meetings with Manchester. With the Clarets’ attack once again having a lot of room for improvement, betting tips on a home win without conceding a goal are recommended for this matchday 8 clash in Manchester
United Kingdom Norwich v Brighton United Kingdom – 16 October, 16:00
The promoted team is bottom of the table and still without a win. At least the first point of the season could be booked on the last matchday thanks to a draw at Burnley. At the same time, this game again did not represent an improvement in terms of attack, as it was a goalless draw.
Only two goals were scored by the Farke eleven – the lowest yield in a league-wide comparison. For the match at Carrow Road, tips on an away win are therefore advisable. Not only the harmless attack of the home side speaks for this prediction, but also the shaky backline of Norwich: Together with Newcastle, they have conceded the most goals
Moreover, the Seagulls travel in his stable condition: The footballers from the south coast are sixth and still unbeaten away from home (2-1-0)
United Kingdom Brentford v Chelsea United Kingdom – Oct 16, 6:30pm
The Bees have already upset Liverpool 3-3 on their own turf recently, so the Blues should be warned. The newcomer is still carried by the euphoria of promotion and has only lost one league game.
Moreover, the offensive is getting better and better: seven of the ten goals of the season have come within the last three league games. The visitors will also be a little tired, as the squad was almost exclusively called up for international duty during the international break.
For the London derby, tips on a goal celebration on both sides are therefore worth a recommendation. The prediction is underpinned by the Blues’ declining defensive strength: the visitors have been waiting four competitive games for their next clean sheet.
United Kingdom Everton v West Ham United Kingdom – October 17, 3pm
The Toffees currently have considerable personnel worries: with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, the two best attackers are out due to injuries. At least the substitute striker Jose Salomon Rondon did not have to play for his home country Venezuela during the international break and will therefore start fresh.
Andros Townsend has also successfully stepped into the breach in attack: The 30-year-old joined from Crystal Palace before the season and has scored in the last three competitive games in the league and in the EFL Cup. He has already surpassed his tally from the previous two seasons!
West Ham, for their part, have conceded their first two defeats of the season in their last three league games and are looking particularly knackered defensively. Only five teams have conceded more goals in a league-wide comparison.
At the same time, the Hammers’ offence is efficient and their games are full of goals: With an average of 3.4 goals , the Londoners even have the highest value together with Newcastle With this in mind, predictions of more than 2.5 goals in this Premier League clash on matchday 8 are the first choice of the betting base.
The prediction is supported by another statistic: Only one of the seven games of the visitors did not end with more than two goals!
United Kingdom Newcastle v Tottenham United Kingdom – 17 October, 17:30
The Magpies are one of the four teams in the Beletage of British football that has yet to record a win this season. The reason for this is the unsettled defence: together with the bottom team, United are the league’s shooting gallery.
They have not yet managed a single clean sheet, and in Tottenham they are facing an opponent who has rediscovered their attack. Three of the six goals of the season were scored in the last two matchdays, although an own goal by Aston Villa in the recent 2-1 home win is also included.
Still, given the home side’s poor defensive display in this matchday 8 Premier League clash, predictions of at least two goals by the Lilywhites are a good idea.
United Kingdom Arsenal v Crystal Palace United Kingdom – 18 October, 21:00
The Gunners close out the matchday with a derby against the Glaziers. The visitors, along with Southampton, are the draw kings so far. Four of the seven league games have ended in a draw. Arsenal, however, have improved considerably recently: After a disastrous start to the season, they have recently recorded three wins and a draw.
However, the performance in the last draw against Brighton dropped off a bit and many of the players in the squad were on international duty, so some will be starting with tired legs.
On top of that, the visitors have only lost to the absolute top clubs from Liverpool and in the shape of Chelsea. Despite their upward form, Arsenal currently only belong in this class on paper. In light of these points, betting on a draw in the match at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on matchday 8 seems lucrative.
This is a fixture that has not been uncommon in this pairing in the recent past, with four of the last six encounters ending in a draw!
