The Premier League is finally back and Tottenham is hosting Manchester United in a great but also strange fixture considering that both teams are coming from a long period of suspension without official or even friendly games.
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last five Premier League outings and in eleven games in a row in Premiership, FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League but who knows the condition of Solskjaer men after three months of suspension. The same is for Jose Mourinho’s side. In other words, whatever they did before suspension it doesn’t matter anymore.
That is why it is wise not to bet on 1X2 but to place a bet on goals. Looking back to what happened in the reopening of Bundesliga and La Liga, most of the teams seemed to be a little bit numb and disorientated. So it might be a good chance for betting 0 or 1 goal on the first half, and No Both Teams to Score in full time.
Another interesting match follows the next day and involves Arsenal. The Gunners took a real hit when the Premier League resumed. A 3-0 loss to City, two injuries and a shutdown became a reality as they now try to reload ahead of Saturday’s meeting away against Brighton where we picked out a winner. And it’s not Arsenal.
Had Arsenal managed to win that first match after the lockdown, they would have had only two points up to Manchester United in a European place. But because of the lead-heavy loss, a European spot feels increasingly distant for Arsenal, which is only on the top half of the table by a margin of one point.
Arsenal looked anything but motivated in the second half against Manchester City when the rain rained down on them and everything went against them. Now it is important to reload fast for already on Saturday, Brighton is waiting to play for survival and will be motivated to max. Brighton will be motivated, and comes from four straight matches without a loss against Arsenal, which might be missing their whole defensive line!
Arsenal’s injury list already included Calum Chambers and Sokratis Papastathopulos before the match against City. During the match, both Pablo Mari and Granit Xhaka injured themselves while David Luiz drew a red card and is now off. In other words, no less than four defenders are most likely away from games before the game against Brighton.
