Premier League Week 23
In this article we will preview 3 key fixtures of gameweek 23 in the Premier League. Some teams have had FA Cup games during midweek, which could impact the outcome of this weekend’s results.
Leicester City v Liverpool
Leicester City take on Liverpool at the King Power stadium on Saturday. The game is an early kick off and will commence at 12:30. The Foxes are in fantastic form going into the clash, losing just once since the turn of the year. The same can’t be said for Liverpool though as they go into the tie, subsequent back to back defeats.
The last meeting between the two sides was a 3-0 Liverpool win, back in November. Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino were the goalscorers and Jonny Evans scored an own goal.
Mohamed Salah has been outstanding for the Reds this season. The Eqyptian Winger has netted 16 times in 22 games and will be a player to watch for Liverpool.
As for Leicester, veteran striker, Jamie Vardy, is someone to look out for. Vardy has scored 11 times in 19 matches this season.
Leicester : 23 / 10
Draw : 5 / 2
Liverpool : 11 / 10
Manchester City v Tottenham
Tottenham travel to the Etihad to take on league leaders, Man City, at 17:30 on Saturday. Spurs go into the tie in relatively poor form, winning 2 of their last 6. Pep’s side are in preposterous form, not losing again since they last played Tottenham, in November.
The last meeting between the two as mentioned above, was in November. Tottenham cruised to a 2-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with goals from Son and Lo Celso.
Heung-Min-Son is a player to watch for Spurs. The South Korean left winger has scored 13 goals in the Premier league this season and has 6 assists.
Tottenham may want to watch out for Phil Foden if the youngster is selected. The versatile attacker was playing upfront in City’s recent game against Liverpool and was outstanding, scoring 1 and assisting 1.
Manchester City : 1 / 3
Draw : 4 / 1
Tottenham : 15 / 2
Arsenal v Leeds
Arsenal host Leeds at the Emirates on Sunday evening at 16:30. The Gunners go into the clash in poor form, winless in 3. Leeds are in solid form, with 3 wins in their last 5.
The last time these two sides played it ended in a 0-0 bore draw. Hopefully a more entertaining game this time round.
Bukayo Saka is one of the most in form players for Arsenal this season. The 19 year old winger has 5 goals and 2 assists in 20 games this season, and has an AMR of 6.99.
Patrick Bamford is a player to watch for Leeds. The centre forward has 12 goals and 5 assists in 22 matches this season. Arguably Leeds’ best player and one of the surprise packages of the season.
Arsenal : 3 / 4
Draw : 14 / 5
Leeds : 10 / 3
