EPL Preview: Gunners, Spurs eye top of table

Fri, Oct 21, 3:02pm by Staff Writer

Tottenham Hotspur, the Premier League’s only unbeaten team this season, could take the championship lead when they travels to Bournemouth to open the ninth week of action on Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham are third on the EPL ladder on 18 points after five wins and three draws, just one point behind Manchester City and Arsenal.

And regardless of how City or the Gunners play this weekend, Tottenham will take the EPL lead with a win, for a few hours at least.

“It’s a big motivation for us to finish the game and take the three points to be top of the table,” Pochettino said. “Better motivation is impossible. The motivation has been very good on the training ground. Our players are very focused and it’s a good opportunity to see us at the top of the table.”

William Hill expects Spurs to have the best of the encounter, paying $2 for a Tottenham win, $3.80 for a loss and $3.60 for a draw.

Arsenal, however, are on short odds to overtake Tottenham once again Sunday when they host Middlesbrough.

The Gunners are chasing an eight-straight wins across all competitions after a resounding a 6-0 win over Champions League victory over Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Champions League on Wednesday.

With attacking trio Theo WalcottAlexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all in fine form, the London club are paying just $1.28 for the home win, with a tempting $12 on offer for a loss and $5.50 for a draw.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will have plenty to prove when he returns to Stanford Bridge on Sunday for the first time since being sacked as Chelsea manager in December.

United have underwhelmed under the Portuguese coach with just four wins against two losses this season and sit on 14 points in seventh place.

Chelsea have fared a little better, with 16 points, but manager Antonio Conte could be without Branislav Ivanovic, Mikel John Obi and Cesc Fabregas for the match.

United, meanwhile, is still waiting to see if Morgan Schneiderlin and Anthony Martial have recovered sufficiently from training injuries to take the field.

Chelsea are tipped to make the most of their home ground advantage in a tight game, paying $2.10 for the win, $3.60 for a loss and $3.50 for the draw.

Later Saturday, City host Southampton on the back of a four-game winless streak, including a humiliating 4-0 Champions League loss to Barcelona during the week.

Pep Guardiola’s side received a boost with the news that Southampton’s star striker Shane Long will miss the match with a hamstring strain.

William Hill is offering $1.50 for City to take the three points at home, with $6.50 for a Southampton win and $4.50 for a draw.

Liverpool are unbackable favourites to beat West Bromwich Albion at Anfield, paying $1.30 for a win, $11 for a loss and $5.50 for a draw.

In other games, Everton are paying $1.65 to win at Burnley, Stoke are on $2.50 to beat Hull in a tight match and defending champion Leicester are on $2.05 to beat Crystal Palace at home.

Swansea are at $2.30 to beat Watford, with West Ham $1.75 favourites to down Sunderland.

Suggested Bet: Take the London multi – Arsenal- Tottenham, and Chelea all to win at $5.38
