The Premier League Takes Over the Mid-Week Football ShowPublished April 19, 2022 by Florin P
Manchester City and Liverpool continue their solitary race for the Premier League trophy, while Arsenal and Chelsea play for a Champions League berth.
A fantastic football weekend has just ended, but the action continues unabated in the major European football leagues. Midweek, the best English teams are scheduled to play, with Manchester City and Liverpool resuming their race for the trophy. Elsewhere, former champions seeking a place in the Champions League will play high-stakes games at home and on the road.
Manchester United Travels to Liverpool
The Red Devils find themselves in the unenviable position of playing against the hottest team in the Premier League. They don’t have a home pitch advantage and are in mediocre form, so defeating Liverpool at Anfield Road is a tall order. Manchester United has several players missing or suspended, whereas the hosts are at full strength. 1xBet offers odds of 2/5 on the home side to prevail, while a surprising victory for the visitors is priced at 7/1.
Must Win Match for Manchester City
The inability to defeat Liverpool, in conjunction with some surprising defeats in recent weeks saw Manchester City lose their advantage. They only have one point ahead of Liverpool and can’t afford any mistakes on Wednesday. The match scheduled against Brighton is a must-win proposition and the hosts will come out firing on all cylinders. They can field a competitive starting formation, so punters shouldn’t expect odds above 1/5. By comparison, 1xBet offers huge odds of 16/1 for the visitors to win.
Chelsea and Arsenal Play the London Derby
The former champions are out of the Premier League race for the trophy, but can still secure a champions league berth. If Arsenal loses this match they will have to settle for Europa League, while a defeat would also compromise Chelsea’s chances. The Blues have a home pitch advantage and a significant lead over Manchester United, so they can settle for a draw. They also have favorite status in this fixture, with odds of 17/20 at bet365 sports, while Arsenal starts with the second chance and odds of 33/10 at the same bookie.
Bet on Many Goals in Everton vs Leicester Match
Only a miracle can see Leicester play in a European cup next season and they need all three points against Everton. The visitors will finally have their best striker fit to play and have no reason to take it slow or settle for a draw. The hosts are under tremendous pressure to deliver, as the threat of relegation is looming large. Home pitch advantage and positive results in the head-to-head matches should bolster their confidence. We expect a high-scoring match and like the odds of 9/10 on over 2.5 goals at bet365 sports.
