Sunday Matches Preview – Expect the Big Guns to win Today
MANCHESTER UNITED vs STOKE CITY
Winless in their last 5 games, Stoke travel to Old Trafford to play United who are in top form lately having delivered 3 consecutive wins and lost 2 in their last 5 games. The idea of a team with Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford is exciting. I tip united for this one.
Manchester United 2-0 Stoke City
LEICESTER CITY vs SOUTHAMPTON
Saints travel to the King Power Stadium having won 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games. Leicester have come back from consecutive losses to win against Porto in the midweek, making it 3 wins and 2 draws in their last 5 games. I expect both teams to cancel each other out.
Leicester City 1-1 Saints
TOTTENHAM vs MANCHESTER CITY
Spurs would be hoping to replicate the show at Celtic Park. They would be without prolific forward Harry Kane, but would be counting on in-form Heung-Min Son for this encounter. Both teams have won 4 of their last 5 games and Pep would be looking to close the hole exposed in his defence against Celtic. Sergio Kun Aguero and Raheem Sterling are likely to take the day in this encounter.
Spurs 1-2 Manchester city
BURNLEY vs ARSENAL
Burnley have won 1, drawn 1 and lost 3 of their last 5 games. They welcome Arsenal who have been unbeaten in their last 5 games picking up 4 consecutive wins and a draw. Alexis is fast adapting well into his new found striking role while Theo Walcott is beginning to find his lost strides.
Burnley 1-4 Arsenal
EMPOLI vs JUVENTUS
Empoli have not won in 3 consecutive games as they welcome Juventus who have won their last 3 games. Juventus would likely continue their run of good form with a win at the Stadio Carlo Castellani.
Empoli 1-2 Juventus
AC MILAN vs SASSUOLO
Milan have won 3, lost 1 and drawn 1 of their last 5 games while Sassuolo have won 3 and lost 2 of their last 5 games. Both sides have not been too impressive in front of goal, but Milan boast a better defensive streak.
Milan 1-0 Sassuolo
REAL MADRID vs EIBAR
Real Madrid have not recorded a loss in their last 5 games but are on a run of 3 consecutive draws. Eibar have won 2, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 5 games but face a very difficult task to grab a result at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Real to get back to winning ways.
Real 4-0 Eibar
CELTA VIGO vs BARCELONA
Celta have won their last 3 games while Barcelona have won 4 of their last 5 games. Celta would hope to repeat the stunner from last season, they trashed Barcelona 4-1 in the corresponding fixture last season. Barcelona are without Lionel Messi but they have just enough bodies to get the job done.
Celta 2-4 Barcelona
