The first game of this weekend will see Liverpool - the best attacking side of the premier league (with 49 goals from 21 games this season) at Anfield battling it out with Swansea - the worst defensive side (conceding 49 goals from 21 games this season). Needless to say what the outcome will be, the away side will be in even more trouble with the return of Philippe Coutinho, who will be back in the starting line-up this Saturday after having missed 7 games due to his injury.
That said, after scoring or assisting 11 goals in 11 league games at the start of the season, Coutinho's first goal stands at an attractive price of 9/2 (5.50) with bet365 - make this each way for a pay out at 1/3 odds for unlimited places in 90 minutes play.
Saturday's late game, however, will be a good source of entertainment, as Manchester City will be battling it out with Tottenham at the Etihad. With Pep Guardiola's City team having had a very inconsistent trajectory to say the least, having thrashed West Ham 5-0 away from home in the FA Cup and followed it up with a dismal 4-0 hammering away at Everton, it would be difficult to predict how they would fare this time around.
That said, the team has won 9, drawn 6 and lost 7 of their last 22 games in all competitions and conceded 3 or more goals in 5 of those, which puts them as more likely to take the three points here at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365.
Sunday's games will kick-off with with Arsenal at home taking on Burnley, with Arsenal being most likely to claim the three points at 1/5 (1.20). With the worst away record in the league this season, Burnley has lost 8 and drawn 1 of their 9 games, and has scored 3 and conceded 20 those 10 matches.
This predicament opens a window of opportunity for many Arsenal players to bag their first goal; Nigerian Alex Iwobi, who has been enjoying an extended run in the side having assisted twice in last week's 4-0 win at Swansea, could be an interesting option at 5/1 (6.00). And with Olivier Giroud's future being doubtful (despite his 13/5 (3.60)) thanks to his ankle injury, Alexis Sanchez at 3/1 (4.00) could take his place move back into the central striking position, where he had been very effective this season, and could well add to his league tally of 14 goals and 8 assists.
This weekend's final game is another home banker, with the title-favorite Chelsea taking on Hull City. And needless to say, the goals are on the cards for the former. As for the Hulls, who are ill-equipped for life in the top flight and have lost 8 successive away league games and have conceded with 23 goals in the process, it would be interesting to see how they would keep a team as strong as Chelsea at bay.
