Here we go. The last stretch of football before the World Cup break. This is a special weekend. Players who are going to the World Cup might want to save a piece of themselves. They might want to preserve their bodies. Getting injured a week before the biggest football tournament is heartbreaking. Having that in mind, I checked the daily schedule and came up with two main picks for my Premier League Predictions.
Today’s Premier League schedule features six matches. I toyed with three or four of them, before settling on my two main picks for today’s English Premier League predictions. The one to be crossed out of my list at the last minute was the Spurs vs Leeds game. I expect goals there, but again, Harry Kane is going to Qatar for the World Cup. Will he hit the brakes early? I decided to focus on my two other picks. So let’s get moving to the main event. Here are my Premier League predictions for the 12th of November.
It has been a year and four days since Eddie Howe was appointed as Newcastle’s head coach. A young aspiring manager, a Londoner of all people, has made Newcastle rally around him. The team now has money to spend, more than anyone else in the world, but even with a good-yet-not-overpowered roster, Howe has brought the Magpies to third place on the Premier League standings, 14 games into the season. It is, in fact, the first time in ten years, Newcastle play Chelsea and are above the Blues on the league table.
The facts are simple. Forget the names of the players. Forget the crest on their chests. Let’s just judge them by form and by the way they play. Kieran Trippier is, at this moment in time, the best defender in the Premier League. Nick Pope is, at this moment in time, one of the top three goalkeepers in the league. Miguel Almiron is the deadliest scorer in the entire world for the past month or so.
No.1 for In-Play
Newcastle are hosting Chelsea. And yes, there are some interesting stats there. Both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling love playing Newcastle. With their old clubs, they’ve each scored nine times against the Magpies, making them their favourite opponents. But these were the old Magpies. And these were the old Aubameyang and Sterling. Now Chelsea are four games without a win. The World Cup break is much needed. And it is something everybody at the club knows. Not to add that there are so many injury problems. So I couldn’t believe the magnitude of the odds of Newcastle winning. This is a set of odds that you can rarely find on the best betting sites offers, so we should take advantage of it.
Newcastle vs Chelsea pick: Newcastle to win @2.36
Things are seemingly simple here. Wolves are at the very least one of the two worst teams in the Premier League. Arsenal are at the very least one of the two best teams in the Premier League thus far. Both rosters got a midweek rest. So there’s no more to say. I’m backing Arsenal to win this one.
