Document about English Premier League related to

There is a full round of matches from England’s Premier League this weekend and we’re taking a look at the top plays.

The biggest game of the weekend plays on Sunday as Manchester United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford. Manchester United have played well at home, winning both league matches 3-0, while Liverpool have already lost in Manchester once this season. They were beaten 3-0 by Manchester City in their first away game, and they were also held to a 0-0 draw against Birmingham City last weekend. Will these form lines continue?

We expect so and, while we’re leaning towards a home win, we’re going with goals in this game, with our money on over 2.5 goals to be scored. Sportsbooks have the current line at 1.94.

Also in action is Arsenal, who travels to Sunderland following their mid-week Champions League exertions against Sporting Braga. Last season Sunderland defeated Arsenal 1-0 at the Stadium of Light in a shock result and after beating big spenders Manchester City there this season, they will be confident of another three points against the Gunners. Arsenal have been pretty good this season as well, currently sitting in second place in the table behind Chelsea and they will be sure of claiming all three points as well.

This is another game we see goals in and we’re backing +2.5 goals @ 1.78 at Sportsbetting.com.

The previously mentioned Manchester City are in action on Sunday as they travel North to face Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium. After starting the season well, Man City have lost their way a little and have managed just a draw from their last two games, losing to Sunderland and drawing with Blackburn Rovers.

Wigan have begun their recovery after losing their first two games 4-0 and 6-0 and have beaten Tottenham Hotspur and drawn with Sunderland in their last two matches. We’re leaning towards a Manchester City win, but with them playing away in Germany on Thursday in Europa League action, they may tired and Wigan could cause another shock.

Choose your bets on this one wisely!
