Premier League picks for Jan 12-14
Burnley vs. Manchester United
Manchester United head into the match at Turf Moor on Tuesday night with the chance to go top of the table. This is a game in hand and a win would send them to the top, three points above Liverpool. Liverpool’s poor form over the course of their last three matches opened the door for both Manchester United and Manchester City to win the title.
Burnley have played well against Manchester United in recent seasons. Last term, they grabbed a surprising 2-0 win at Old Trafford. The Clarets should play a strong match versus Manchester United when the teams meet. In the end, the Red Devils should win the match narrowly to send them to the top of the table with their game versus Liverpool coming up on Sunday.
The Red Devils are unbeaten in five of their last six games versus Burnley. Three of the last six games finished in Manchester United wins.
Result: Manchester United win
Manchester City vs. Brighton
It could be a bloodbath at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City defeated Brighton by a combined 9-0 scoreline last season across two league matches. Brighton have failed to win against Manchester City in seven straight league games.
Graham Potter’s Brighton have a number of injuries going into the game. Although Manchester City are not scoring goals as they did last term, the should have no issue getting enough goals to snatch a win and move third in the league.
Manchester City are coming on strong in the title race and could overtake both Liverpool and Manchester United. They are now sportsbooks’ favorite to win the league.
Result: Manchester City to win
Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace
I smell upset in the air… or maybe not so much upset but surprise draw. Crystal Palace are unbeaten in four straight matches versus Arsenal claiming one win and three draws. Although Arsenal are improving and on a three-match winning streak.
Crystal Palace are unbeaten in two straight matches. Goals have been an issue for the Eagles all season. Arsenal have won just twice versus Crystal Palace in their last six games. They could struggle to get a win versus the Eagles this week. To be on the safe side, let’s predict an Arsenal win or draw on Thursday night when these teams meet.
Result: Arsenal to win or draw
